Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
I was at my house in Barrentown, a community outside Petal, MS. standing on my side porch just beforendusk; I looked up from my guitar and saw a large statured, grey in color, short-furred beast appx. 13 feetntall. I was amazed at the sheer size of the creature and I became scared. I drew a .22 caliber target pistol when it approached, I prepared to fire.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
The creature backed up when I aimed my weapon at it. In my panic I neglected to disengage the safety.nWhen the weapon failed to fire, the beast seemed to be aware of that. It appeared that it was going toncharge me when I released the safety and fired four shots in it's direction that I could swear hit it in it'snchest. The creature seemed to hesitate and I ran from my house to my sisters trailer down the driveway.nBy the time I returned home it was gone.
Describe the time of year and the environment
