Follow-up investigation report:
Witness is an experienced hunter and is not absolutely certain that what he saw was a bigfoot. Whatever he saw crossed a two-lane highway in three steps and walked/ran on two legs. It is a forested landscape that borders the highway on both sides, and witness noticed a musty smell "like wet tent-canvas" as he drove past the location of the sighting.
