    what a crock , i would have cam back w/ a digital camera and took pics of these “tracks”
    all these “encounters” say the same thing “no evidence collected”
    if something 300lbs walks/crawls/runs… it leaves tracks period… take the photos , then maybe you had a “encounter” .. otherwise you were too drunk/high to be driving , stay home keep the roads safe for the rest of us
