Factory and Main, Garland, Utah, 2010
Two stories come from Garland, Utah. Unfortunately they are not very rich with detail. I have a self-challenge to look up the police chief that is mentioned. I have already spoken with some ranchers in the area and haven't learned much.
1981: The police chief of Garland, Box Elder County, said he saw a creature run in front of his car. Several other residents also reported sightings and tracks are found that lead in a northwest direction.
1988: Ranchers near Garland reported seeing two Bigfoot-like creatures near their lambing pens after dark. Soon after, many tracks were found in the Garland area in deep snow and were followed two miles.

An e-mail came in recently that sheds more light on the sightings in Tremonton and Garland. I will quote the e-mail here:
"(The Police Chief of Garland) had received a call from a farmer on the west edge of Garland on Canal Road one evening that something was scaring his cows. The officer responded and drove along the canal with his light shining from his patrol car shining it into the canal. About 1/4 mile down the road he saw something that he could not explain. I know he didn't talk about what he saw with too many people. My dad was friends with him and he shared the experience with my dad after he had retired. "All I know is it wasn't human; I saw what I saw."
I know this road and have driven down it a few times. I will go back and make another photograph of the area described in the e-mail.
