OBSERVED: Well had a possible sighting today in the Shawnee National Forest... Not by me sadly but my wife! And believe it or not she's not even a believer!
Anyways we where driving around from campground to campground tryin to find a spot to set up. Drove to a campground called Camp Cadiz. All camp sites were occupied there so we drove down this old road. It became to muddy to go any further so we decided to turn around. And as I was dodging big potholes filled with water we came around this bend, and she catches out the corner of her eye, she screams "babe don't hit that" and Im like "what !?" Of course I see nothing there, but she says there was something coming out of the wood line trying to cross the road but rain back in. She says it was black/brownish, upright & extremely large and tall! She says she still doesn't believe bigfoot exists.. but she knows she seen something she can't explain !

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Chris Callahan:
I spoke to the witness by phone. This sighting was very brief, no more than a few seconds. The only additional details added were to state the “fur” was a black/brownish color and the figure was 7.5 to 8 feet tall (the husband of the witness is 6 feet and 1 inch tall and that is how she determined the height estimate).
