Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Colleen McDonald:
I spoke with the witness May 14, 2007.
He is an avid hunter and outdoors man. He had walked into the woods in a remote area in the valley above Midday Creek hunting deer. They were working their way down some valleys and ravines. He saw one footprint that wasnít very clear then walked under a big tree and found a clear human-like five toed footprint frozen in the mud. It was longer and wider than his size 10 work boot. At another time during the first weekend of deer season they had set up their hunting camp in this remote area and had a rock thrown into their camp. Years earlier his brother had a sighting in the area that was reported in one of John Greenís books. The area is abundant with wildlife such as deer, bear and grouse. I found the witness to be very sincere and knowledgeable about the outdoors.
