Listen to Interview With Witness (YouTube):
Description: A man claims to have seen a 7 foot tall gray being from his backyard. The being had a large head and pronounced ribs. The man heard his dog barking in his backyard. He went outside to investigate and saw the being across the street from his home at a distance of around 15 to 30 feet. The being ran out of bushes moved very fast away from the witness. The witness did not see the being’s eyes, but said that he vanished quickly. It was dark, but the witness said that street lights allowed him to see the creature. He said that the creature was visible for about 10 seconds. The witness was very “shaken” and did not call authorities. He said that the creature was not human.
Note: The witness called shortly after he saw the creature. (The interview with the witness can be heard above.) He seemed sincere and was quite shaken by his experience. He was afraid that the creature may come back and asked me if I thought that the creature would return. I responded that the creature fled from him and his dog and I doubted if he was in danger.
This report is most interesting. I don’t believe that the witness saw a deer or other animal because of his description of the head, ribs and height of the creature.
I requested a sketch from the witness and that he look in the area where the creature had been to see if there were any tracks or trace evidence. So far I have not heard anything further from the witness.
