Describe what you heard / found / saw
I am a police officer (prefer not to name the department I work for, and prefer not to use my name) andnI was driving east on W. Mason (Business 175) through Mabank.nAroun 2 a.m., I was turning south on Park Blvd, and behind some tall grass and weeds, behind anbusiness, I saw move quickly to my right. I didn't see a face, legs or much in the way of detail, but I hitnmy high beams and noticed it had what appeared to be very coarse hair. It moved, honestly, like a gorillandown on all fours. The hair almost looked like a pig's hair. Although a quite a bit longer hair than a pig's,nit was obviously very coarse and rigid hair.nIt was black (with what appeared to be a light dusting (there's a lot of dirt around) or dark gray in color.nAs I passed the location I saw it, I grabbed a spotlight that I carry and lit the area up. The only thingnmoving were a few branches from a grove of trees near the area it was headed, as well as some of the tallngrass and weeds it went through.nIt was a very still, heavy and humid evening, approximately 80 degrees and no chance of rain. I backednup and looked closer from my original point of observation, and noticed some small posts (to preventnvehicles from driving into the grassy area behind the business). They are approximately 3-4 feet innheight, and whatever I saw was significantly higher than those poles, and it was right beside the posts.nSo I'm guessing the observed animals was about 4-5 feet in height...on its all fours
