Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Ron B.:
Witness stated that, the animal was first crouched down, then stood erect, on two legs,the animal was limping, favoring it's right side. He (witness) did not see the face, or notice any details due to fright.
Witness feels the animal was looking for a water source, due to local drought.
