OBSERVED: The witness was walking his dog at 4-5 pm.
A tractor-trailer truck nearby turned the corner around the truck and the creature stood up. Witness turned around and walked away quickly, glanced over his shoulder. The creature walked away smoothly. The dog (Beagle hound) did not notice the creature as the witness walked away. The witness was upwind. Not hurried stride. Moved in a fluid motion.
Witness and others, including Paul Bartholomew, found 12 inch footprints and a  bedding area nearby the following days. Two-foot stride.  Approximately 6+ feet tall. Slender in appearance, maybe 200 lbs.  The head had a pointed cone shape, no definitive forehead. Dark brown color. Did not see the face well. Did not have a neck. Broad shoulders, one yard wide. The chest was nondescript. Long arms, ended near the knee.  The arms only swung slightly. Saw dark hairy hands.  Big dark hairy legs, nothing unusual. No genitalia noticed. No smell noticed, the beagle did not notice either.

The creature headed toward the only route towards a forest. This is on the north side of Whitehall, near Lake Champlain. Did not hear any noises.

The witness is a hunter and knew it was not a bear.
Several dumpsters from two restaurants and an apartment structure nearby.

ALSO NOTICED: Bedding area discovered by girlfriend. Several Restaurant dumpsters nearby. Floods after spring rains.
