Not actual truck
Guest Editor-Blogger, Kristie has this information to tell us about:
Look where you're walking. Back in May of 2007, my husband was working on a logging yarder over at Twelvemile Creek Road, which is about 4 miles west of Camas Valley, Oregon. It was a Saturday, so I decided to ride along with him. After finishing his work, we decided to take a ride on down the road and come out at Riddle then back to the shop at Myrtle Creek.
We got to this place where an old pickup had apparently been abandoned for some time. All around the truck were empty beer and pop cans, so we decided to pick them up. As I got out of the truck, I noticed a very overwhelming smell, like a dead animal.
I walked around the back of our truck to see very large foot tracks that were coming from the steep bank where they turned up the bank and into the woods. Apparently whatever made them had walked down the side of the road on two feet not four.
We saw where the tracks went around this old rusty truck in the soft dirt. My husband had a tape measure on his dash and measured them at 18 1/2 inches long and 8 inches wide.
I still believe the maker was very close to us as I could smell it. My husband and I believe these tracks were not made by a human. Just too big and too plain to be faked. Why would anybody place tracks there anyway? And what would be the point as the closest farm was 15 miles away?

Yes, I felt very threatened by the creature. When I saw it, it advanced towards me about 15 feet. As I didn't know what it was, I didn't know if it was going to attack or what. Also the men who reported it said they thought it might be sick because it didn't seem to be scared of them. It was very slow to leave the bridge.
Guest Editor-Blogger, Longtime Montana Cop has this to say:
I don't like the commentary very much by Anonymous. I would never try to scold him or her on speaking their peace. People have the right to think what they want. Many people in bigger cities don't know that most of the areas in Oregon have a small amount of deputies to patrol their county.
I have read the account and don't find anything wrong with the way it was told. Of course, it's not a formal report but an account from a man telling it the way he saw it.
The fact he fired a warning shot at an unknown animal does not bring on a formal investigation as some might think. Put yourself in his shoes and see what you'd do.
