OBSERVED: Witness received a text message from a friend at 10pm. He needed vehicle assistance. As he was driving Eastbound, towards Vermont, on US 4, he noticed a "Log" on the side of the road where the white line is. Witness then noticed a second log next to the other. He then realized it was a black haired creature, approximately 6 foot tall, 2.5-3 foot wide shoulders. No neck, the hair from the head went down to the shoulders. He only saw the back of the creature, he did not see the face or front. As he approached, he saw it step over a side railing about 3 feet high with little effort and descend into the woods towards a high power line. He had to continue to assist his friend.
The next day he contacted a local Whitehall Bigfoot researcher Paul Bartholomew whom visited the site with the witness and took plaster casts of the two footprints on the side of the road.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Mike Young:
I spoke with the witness for over an hour in Whitehall, that Friday. I have a recording of the interview. I have photos of the area and photos of the plaster casts and forest. He answered the questions confidently and would tell me if he could not answer a specific detail.
I spoke with the researcher for close to an hour as well later that evening, he showed me the casts and other casts he had made in the Whitehall area.
I find them both to be honest and reliable.
A relative of the witness saw me in Whitehall, knowing I have gone on expeditions with the BFRO, he immediately put me in contact with the witness.
- The witness "John" is the Father of the owner of Champ's campground "Sal" in Whitehall.
- Paul Bartholomew put the photos of the casts on his Facebook page.
- Several people have reported this already on their Blogs.
