Van Buren County Michigan (Class A) BFRO

March 2022

March 10th 2021 4:31p.m. Eastern Standard Time daylight savings. Located around 900 feet above sea level in a dense forest area near 79th and CR 669. I arrived home, pulled up, sun shining and [40 yards] from the edge of my 8 stran BRB wire bison fence [outside the fence] I observed the movement of what appeared to be a 7 ft tall broad chested hairy animal. It made a deliberate movement to turn away. The hair I witnessed bristled and slightly changed color as it turned. The upper hair area in the sun had the color of red fox with lighter highlights and sheen of blackish tips. The hair looked very well-groomed not matted almost as if it was flashy. But as it bristled and turned it's back, which appeared to be no less than 4 ft wide, the color of the animal seem to blend with the foliage grayish color. It's motion was fluid and there was no arm movement. I could not see its head or face clearly.
