Time: 11:20 pm
Location Description: Downtown Marquette crossing Washington St.
As I was driving in downtown Marquette, corner of Washington and Lincoln, I saw an animal running across the road whose shadow I immediately recognized. The animal was bigger than a standard dog but not as large as a deer. It strode powerfully across the road, just narrowly being missed by my car. The tail was the most distinctive part of the body I recognized. I only really saw its silohuette but quickly pulled into the parking lot whose alley it ran down. This sighting occured in the dark of night.
