Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator TK Bell:
In addition to the report. The family of two adults and their four children had been camping at the Waubonsie park, were taking a walk on the trail in June around 2:30 pm. It had been several days at least two since the last rain, when they noticed some foot prints appearing on the trail. The foot prints were 17-18 inches seven to eight inches wide with a stride of about five to six foot, in a straight line heel to toe. They continued their hike around the park til they ended up back at their primitive camp site. The children’s age ranges from eight up to fifteen years old at the time. The Christian family enjoys being outdoors when possible to help teach their children about nature.
