New Area of Interest for the FBI
This past Monday Bigfoot Investigator Kevin Thomas Kehl headed out to the field to investigate an area that was listed in a BFRO report that took place in Hillsborough County Florida in the fall of 2013.

Finding an adequate and secure entrance point took most of his time that afternoon because the surrounding area is so densely populated but ultimately this turned out to be a great reconnaissance trip for a future a expedition for the F.B.I.
Before the sun finally set, Kevin was able to discover something of great interest during his journey into this deep, dense and animal rich wilderness area.
The F.B.I.team will certainly be back to explore this location before the end of the month.
Below is the actual BFRO report that described the encounter in this exact area last autumn. The witness seems to be very credible and makes for a very interesting case.
I am an avid birdwatcher and wildlife photographer. I take very long hikes in various wild areas around Tampa this time of year to photograph whatever I find. I was walking on one of the rather wide trails and I came to a stop because I heard a noise. I had seen quite a few wild pigs that morning and I thought I could photograph one crossing the trail in front of me. I was looking down at my camera adjusting the ISO settings and I saw something large move out of the corner of my eye (to my left) approximately 200 feet away. As soon as I saw the movement I looked directly at it and it was already halfway across the trail at this point. My eyes were directly on the animal as it walked, upright, across the rest of the trail and into the palmettos. It was very large (at least 6 feet tall or more) completely black in color with a VERY wide chest from front to back. It was walking completely upright with a very fast, purposeful pace. The animal was leaning forward slightly but did not seem awkward with its steps - like a bear would be while walking upright.
I slowly walked over to the spot where I saw it cross and I could still hear it moving through the woods in the distance. I immediately noticed that all the birds around me had stopped chirping and the insects had stopped making noise as well. I looked for tracks or hair left on the plants in the area but found nothing. I was able to get a picture of the palmetto on the trail where it crossed and I put my tripod near it for a height comparison.
I am extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife in Florida but I cannot explain what type of animal I saw this past weekend.
ALSO NOTICED: The birds in the area stopped chirping at the time of the sighting.
