Shannon County South Dakota (Class A) BFRO

September 1998

For the past four years my family has seen a creature unidentifiable to us; these sightings have been at our home seven miles north of Porcupine, South Dakota. The creature appears to be seven to nine feet tall and has left a couple of footprints that measured 18 inches long and 7 inches wide. It stands up straight and has a slight hunch when walking. We have also found hair; possible saliva mixed with grass, and dried blood stains on cactus. There have been small trees broken on the property; they look snapped which would take such strength. It has often been seen running at high speed, too quickly to follow. I and most family members have seen this creature continuously ' not just once; sometimes days pass between sightings..
