Here’s an excerpt:

I turned my attention to Porter. I immediately observed that he was sweating profusely, and breathing heavily. Porter began to flex his upper body at me, growl, and yell at me. I was able to see veins in Porters’ neck bulging and spit flying from his mouth as he growled.

It’s a pleasure to read such an excellent report. I hope you’ll take a moment to read it yourself.
