Please describe your encounter:
I went to the edge of a small bay on Lake Barkley (near Davenport Bay) to do some fishing. I cast a lure into the water when movement across the bay caught my eye. I looked up, saw a figure in the bushes stand up, and run up the hill. I was familiar with every animal native to the LBL and this was something I had never seen before. It ran upright on two legs with the arms swinging at the sides. It ran like a human. I watched as it disappeared over the hill. A minute or so after it disappeared; I realized my lure was still floating on the water. I’d forgotten all about it. I tried to make my way around to the other bank where I had seen the figure but the brush was too thick. Over the rest of the summer I returned to the same spot several times but never saw it again.

Describe the creature with detail:
I would estimate it stood only about 6 ft. It was covered from head to foot with brown fur. There was short hair on the head. The fur didn’t look shaggy or unkempt, it looked smooth and shiny. I could see the muscles moving under the fur. I didn’t see the face, I only saw the backside. What was the strangest of all was that it had what can only be described as an hourglass figure. The legs and arms were long, but not overly muscular. This leads me to believe that it may have been a young female.
