OBSERVED: My friend and I were leaving her house. We decided to check out a tree in her yard that we thought we had seen something in about 2 weeks before. The tree was about 60 yards from her house and close to the road. We drove down to the tree and I had my bright lights on and was about 50 ft away from the tree. We saw something huge and white sitting on a branch of the tree. I saw the head and shoulders. The shoulders were broad and it didn't look like it had a neck. My friend saw two legs dangling down. The legs were hairy and were moving. The head and shoulders were moving slightly back and forth like it was getting ready to jump down. My friend screamed and shouted "go, go, go". I was in shock, but managed to put the car in reverse and backed out as fast as I could and drove off. I called my brother on my cell phone and my friend called her mother and told her not to come out of the house.

Follow-up investigation report:
The sighting occurred near a creek that flows out of the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge, along with the Ft. Sill Military Reservation, is located immediately to the north of Cache. These areas provide a very large area of essentially uninhabited mountainous terrain, which support large populations of deer, elk and bison. We drove to the upper reaches of this drainage and hiked for a mile or so.
Thanks to M. Berger and R. Taylor for their assistance with the follow-up investigation and on-site visit.
