November 2016

I was driving along Scott-Troy Road after work one night. It was around 8:15 pm when I was driving through some wooded parts of Scott-Troy. I saw something large, black and hairy take two-three giant bounds across the road before it disappeared on the other side. I slowed for a bit, trying to see what it was, but it was too dark to see what it was or where had it gone.
