Tipsu Tyee campground, a site close to the lake


Description of event: My husband and I were sitting around the campfire, with our backs to the lake, and facing the hill. We first heard some very distinct yells. A few minutes later, we heard gun shots. Shortly after that, a large animal started running down the hill straight towards us. It was exhaling very loudly through it's nose (almost a huffing sound), and moving very fast. It didn't sound like it was on four legs though. It ripped through the trees effortlessly. I shined my flashlight into the woods in front of us, and it stopped in it's tracks, then slowly moved back up the hill in a different direction.

Investigation by: Bill Hodgson

I have spoke with the witnesses, and found them to be credible. Their encounter gave them a new look at the possibility of the Beings we share this world with.

The location is real, and the story is consistent and truthful. They asked what our mission was here on the OBF, and I told them, "it is to help those who are looking for understanding, and to help the witness(es) except and embrace what they have experienced. And, to let them know they are not crazy, but are much closer to the truth."

I wish to Thank You again for your report and taking the time to speak with me. I hope I have helped.

Remember, "A person can be taught, people cannot!"
