Off of US 10 just west of Baldwin MI.The incident took place at around 1am in the last week of June. I was standing in the river fishing for trout during the Hex hatch. When In the brush in front of me I heard some unexplainable sounds. It sounded like mumbled talking and it was not human like. It scared me so bad. We got out of there. Earlier that night we heard some screams off
In the distance, noises that we had never heard before. I did not see anything. I told one person about it, a fellow angler and he had an encounter in the same exact area. He saw the creature in the moon light and said it followed him all the way back to his car. He also told me I am the 3rd person to tell him almost the exact same thing. There is something out there worth investigating.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Preston Cichoski:
The witness and his fiancÚ were going fishing late one night and heard a series of distant screams that they could not identify. He described them as "high-pitched, animalistic yells". Both he and his fiancÚ described getting an "eerie feeling", but it did not deter them from fishing later that night/morning.
As they went fishing on the river, they heard what sounded like a female voice speaking in the dense foliage ahead of them. Though he said it did not sound quite human, the witness still asked his fiancÚ if she had said something, but she mentioned that she thought it was him. As far as they knew, they were the only ones in the area. The location the mumbling was coming from was so thick with vegetation that the witness could not see what was making the sound, nor did he think a person could get back there without a great deal of struggle.
After the event took place, a friend of the witness described an incident in the same area where he saw an unidentified animal, approximately seven feet tall, that followed him back to his vehicle at night.
