Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Kevin Llewellyn:

I talked to the witness by phone.

He was fishing on Goose Lake but had to go into his tent due to a noontime thunderstorm. He heard one loud vocalization exactly like the third one in the video and it echoed down the canyon. He estimates it was fifty to one hundred yards away and said, "it felt like a zoo lion roar in his chest. It seemed like it had the power from a 900 pound animal." The hair on the back of his neck stood.

After the rain stopped, he smelled an odor like a wet dog and urine for about an hour. He did not leave. There were other campers around but he did not talk to any of them.

He has heard bear, elk, cougar, etc. but this was powerful and different. He has fished this area a lot and always wondered if it was a Bigfoot.

We cannot verify what made the vocalization in the similar recording that he provided.
