The slanted branch assembly observed along the wooden path in the forest, as we returned to the carpark; notice the use of multiple component bark colours, species, and textures, as well as the use of a gently curved branch to support and stabilise the whole.

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] however, there are numerous, published reports for the adjacent counties of Brevard, Lake, Orange, and Volusia.[2]  Additionally, the GCBRO (Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organisation) has published a sighting report from 1983.[3]  Further investigation and discussion of the Skunk Ape[4] phenomenon may be found on the Smithsonian website as well.[5]  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 large, curiously and haphazardly suspended branch assembly observed in the woods;
  2. The slanted branch assembly, observed near the wooden path;
  3. The strong, ammonia-like odour noticed as we were walking;
  4. The pair of deeply impressed tracks in the soft, thick mud;
  5. The return of the strong, ammonia-like odour.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experience(s), may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC[6] in Seminole County, Florida, in the summer 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.
