Bigfoot Sighting Report with Photo

I got this bigfoot sightings report in a couple days ago. The witness, Darren, sent me the photo that he had taken with his flip phone. After the report there is some enhancement of the picture. This is a good report and a big thanks to Darren for sharing it.

- Start Report -

Date of Sighting: 11/3/2012

Nearest Town: Middletown
Length of Sighting: 5 to 6 minutes
How many Witnesses: 1

Describe sighting in detail:
Driving down a gravel road and noticed something big and dark. I stopped and watched it for a couple minutes. It was looking away from me and kind of bending over. It noticed me then started to walk off, that's when I took the picture of it with my Motorola flip phone. The photo is grainy but you can clearly see the head and shoulders of this thing. this thing looked to be 7-8 foot tall and maybe 3-4 hundred pounds? It had longish dark hair and it didn't have a neck. I am a avid hunter and I can tell you this is something I have never seen ever!
It seemed like it only took a few steps and it was gone down over the little hill. I have revisited this place a number of times and never seen it again.

- End Report -

I have attempted to enhance the photo take by Darren.

I zoomed it in and adjust the contrast a little.
Still can't really make out any detail but it does appear to be a human type figure.

Next I thought I would try to trace the outline and help everyone see the shape of the figure a little better. The figure does appear to be rather bulky and not have much of a neck. you can basically see the upper torso, the head, shoulders, arm and chest.  It was good thinking of Darren to attempt to get a picture. Yes it is grainy but at least we have something to look at and it does add to the report. Sometimes these types of sightings happen so quickly you just don't have time to get a picture or the person will freeze up. So nice going by Darren.

Here is just an inversion of the photo. 

It is my understanding that this sighting has stirred up interest in the subject of Bigfoot for Darren. He is currently doing some research and investigation in the area of the sighting. I hope at some point I can give an update to this report and his investigation work.
