Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
Yes on route 26 south of lacon. Screams heard on several occassions. A tralior lifted off the ground thatnscared the family so bad they moved the next day. A large hairy ape like creature bent down to look in ankitchen window of the cops house when his wife was doing dishes. This window was 7 feet off thenground. Nonthing to stand on out side. My dad was good friends with this cop and he told him. Theyninstalled security cameras, dawn to dusk lights and a sound system so strong you can hear a safty pinnbeing dropped on the gravel drive. This all turns on at dusk and off at dawn. Also heard two coonnhunters talking on walkie talkies. Some thing their coon hounds had treed was tearing the dogs into likentissue paper. They were trying to get the living dogs out of there when transmission ended. Could hearnthe fear in their voices, the dogs yelping, and terriable roaring screams in the background. They werenseperated at the time of the attack and were trying to get to each other and the dogs. This was in 1967nalso. Summer of that year. About 10:30 p.m. 1970 moved to a house in town. Summer evening, Very hotnall the windows open and a VERY ROTTEN smell came in the living room window!!!!!!!!!!!
