The small, beautifully composed, ground-based glyph assembly observed in the clearing; notice the almost-perfect, geometric precision of the component branches, as well as the use of multiple component sizes, thicknesses, bark colours, and textures.

Substantiation of this Report may be provided, in part, by the BFRO (Bigfoot Field Researchers’ Organisation), which lists three reports for Seminole County, Florida;[1] additionally, the GCBRO (Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organisation) has published a sighting report from 1983.[2]  Further investigation and discussion of the Skunk Ape[3] phenomenon may be found on the Smithsonian website as well.[4]  Other researchers and/or investigators may offer additional evidence and documentation.

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

  1. The pair of curiously twisted saplings, both oriented to the woods on the east side of the meadow;
  2. The long, heavy branch positioned atop the wire fencing;
  3. The sudden, loud noise of movement in the brush;
  4. The eerie stillness and quiet all around us, as we entered the swamp forest;
  5. The large, arched branch on the abandoned vehicle-access road;
  6. The pair of beautifully constructed, ground-based glyphs observed in the clearing;
  7. The large, wide, deeply impressed toes observed on the vehicle-access road;
  8. The remarkable stride length of same;
  9. The remnant spinal column of a White-tailed Deer, observed on a bed of brown moss.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experience(s), may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC[5] in Seminole County, Florida, in the late spring of 2016.

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 certainty.
