Substantiation of this Report, and the behaviours described therein, may be provided, in part, by various reports published on the BFRO website,[1] and others. A cursory view of 2007 sightings at Salt Fork State Park suggests considerable activity in this area, both historic[2] and contemporary.[3]

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The twisted-off sapling, laid across the trail to the cave;
  2. Numerous branch assemblies, strongly resembling pyramids or tipis, observed on the escarpment;
  3. The strong, unpleasant odour at the bedding area;
  4. The pancake-shaped pile of scat at the bedding area;
  5. The bedding area proper;
  6. Numerous branch assemblies observed near the bedding area;
  7. The long, suspended branch, blocking the trail to the carpark;
  8. The single, loud wood-knock heard at the bedding area.

These factors, alone or in combination, may be considered sufficient to confirm the presence of EC at Hosak’s Cave. Further developments in the area and/or the number of visitors thereto, may have affected same; I have only returned to Salt Fork State Park a few times since then. Further investigation may provide additional information regarding habitation in this area, either permanent or itinerant.

A number of subjective events also occurred at Hosak’s Cave; while these cannot be considered conclusive evidence of EC, they cannot be discounted in their entirety. Nonetheless, they may be considered as peripheral, and therefore possibly pertinent, to the physical, visual, audible and olfactory events outlined above.
