Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Carter Buschardt:
Spoke with witness via phone. He normally checks BFRO site for reports in his area and after BFRO Report #48012 was published, he contacted me, as this is pretty close to his home as the crow flies. Hie added 2 recent incidents that give some relevance and credence to his original report. He is an experienced camper, not hunter, and is familiar with the normal sounds of wildlife in his area. The whoop he reported was nothing like he had ever heard before, both in his neighborhood and camping up until recently. Very loud and deep, and he "felt it bounce off his chest".This past summer he had something steal all the tomatoes out of his garden. They were giant beefsteak tomatoes which were almost the size of grapefruits probably several bushels worth. They were all gone overnight except for one half eaten and sitting on top of his fence. Also, this past Friday, Nov.11th, he heard "two or more creatures chattering back and forth" in the woods behind his home. Sounded like "kids talking real fast". He has been researching sounds on BFRO site since all this started and is and is fairly certain of what he is hearing.
