Jim Davidson was traveling south on Interstate 29 between Grand Forks and Fargo one Sunday afternoon last October when he spotted a large gray animal cross in front of him from east to west.


The animal then ran into a ditch filled with cattails and other heavy cover.

Davidson, of Denver, has an 85-pound German shepherd and a 120-pound yellow Labrador; using the two pets as comparison, he estimates the animal he saw along

I-29 weighed 90 to 100 pounds.
