Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
My sister and I were coming home from school off the bus. We lived on a farm just outside of Milroy.nWe had a grove that formed a 'U' shaped around our house. As we got up to the house I noticed a shape towards the north end of the grove which had a gap to let tractors through. We thought it was our dad, so we went running towards it. As we got about 100 yards from it, it darted into the woods. When it ran into the grove it kinded of ran slumped over. This made me think it was my dad playing with us. When got to the spot it was I could hear branches breaking heavily through the grove. We thought my dad was heading back to the house but when we got there he was at the table eating. Later that night when I was in my room that was by the front door, something started pounding on the front door. I ran to my parents room, but my dad got mad at me for trying to scare my sisters. At night I could always hear noises which sounded like pigs (we didn't have any). One night I ran outside to chase them away, but when I got outside there were nothing around.
