Substantiation of this Report is minimal, at best; excepting only the eyewitness accounts of those guests who saw the creature, and various historical encounters across northern Michigan.[1] The 1967 Cross Village encounter took place less than ten miles (10mi, or 16.09km) away from this location;[2] there have been reports of similar creatures near Larks Lake, just to the north.[3]

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

  1. The sound of footsteps upon the road, sufficiently loud to attract attention;
  2. The huge, glowing yellow eyes observed in the darkness of the woods, high off the ground;
  3. The direct, visual sighting of a large, wolf or dog-like creature, standing upright on its hind legs.

Based upon these behaviours, it is reasonable to suggest the presence of DM[4] in Harbour Springs in July, 2009; I have only returned to this location a few times since then.[5]

A number of subjective events also occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainly.
