Substantiation of this Report is minimal, at best; excepting only the eyewitness accounts of the eldest son, who observed the creature ahead of us in the woods, and various historical encounters across northern Michigan.[1] Although I have not found any specific DM reports in the locale of Area K for 2012,[2] both the 2009 Harbour Springs encounter[3] and the 2011 Charlevoix encounter[4] must be accounted in proximity, and as prequels to that which occurred in 2012. A slightly later report from 2013, related in an anonymous letter to the Cadillac Evening News,[5] suggests on-going activity in the Manistee National Forest.[6]

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

  1. The eldest son’s reported observations of a large, bipaedal, dog-like creature at the farm, in the weeks prior to my arrival, and his confusion of same with chupacabra;
  2. The direct, visual observation of a very large, dog-like creature with glowing red eyes, on the path through the woods;
  3. The direct, visual observation of the creature’s posture, rising to its hind feet and standing upright;
  4. The intense, palpable fear experienced by both the eldest son and I;[7]
  5. The audible, low-pitched growl heard when we left the woods.

Based upon these behaviours, it is reasonable to suggest the presence of DM[8] at Area K in January, 2012.

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.
