Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Blaine McMillan :
I contacted the witness both by email and by phone and I can add the following :
The witness and his family were travelling from Green Lake to Big River, Saskatchewan. They had just come around a bend in the road when they noticed a green Caravan about 200 yards ahead. At first glance there appeared to be a person relieving himself in the right hand ditch beside this vehicle (this is a common practice in isolated communities). However, the van was still in motion and the person continued to walk across the ditch.
The witness saw that the person was extremely tall and had crossed the 30 foot wide ditch in 4 or 5 easy steps only to continue on into the surrounding forest. He noted that what he saw walked in a very fluid motion in a slightly stooped posture. When his vehicle reached the spot where it had crossed the ditch he could not see it in the bush beside the road.
No facial features were observed due to the distance but he informed me that the animal had appeared to have no neck, that its head sat directly on it's shoulders and the head was conical or sloped towards the back.
The witness said that in the future he plans to carry a camera when driving the local roads just in case.
