Description of event: Note: Above 'Rural residential' should also mix with well used highway as it borders a farm and a to the west rural area.

DETAILS: This past 2011 Summer -- my dog 'Weeble Wobble' and I were visiting my mom in her manufactured home park. About 2 a.m., armed with only a cheap flashlight, I took my dog out to the fenced-off, no lights back yard to do his business -- and rather than lifting his leg, he stood rock-steady staring into the near pitch blackness over the fence that was heavily covered in approx. 15 foot bushes. It should be noted Weeble's gaze was aimed more towards the top of the approx. eight-foot fence. It was then I heard, wait -- make that we heard this deep, repetitive 'WUU-ahh, WUU-ahh' sound coming from the other side of the fence in the farm field. Weeble and I stood there for about 60 seconds wondering what 'it' was ... and yes, I was feeling a tad afraid. Ultimately, I whispered, 'Weeble! C'mon -- let's go!' He turned tail and ran past me, and towards the car-port area where the back door was.

Investigation by: Bill Hodgson

I met with the witness and went out to the location. Upon, arriving I noticed that a number of large pasture and farm fields butted up with the location. The location is rural in nature and is backed by several miles of rural residences, orchards and forests.

The witness retold the story. The recount was accurate and matched up with the report the witness submitted. I found the witness to be very credible.

The rural, agricultural, BLM and Nat'l Forest lands that fall behind the location go on for miles. I would not be surprised that BF's would come in and check us out. Wouldn't be the first time and probably won't be the last.

I want to Thank the witness for sharing the report and allowing me to come and take a look.

Thank You!
