Thank you for taking the time to contribute your report.

Please be as thorough as possible. Track finds and smell or sound reports are just as valuable as sighting reports. Second-hand reports are fine. If you have more than one encounter to report (i.e., if two encounters happened on significantly different dates), please submit each report separately. If you don't know the EXACT date or location, please just be as specific as you can.

NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPS! If you know how, PLEASE type up your description in MS Word or another program and SPELL CHECK IT before submitting it. Once it's spell-checked, you can select, copy and paste it into the description field of the form. Thanks! :)
