Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
I left a friends house at around 10:30 to 11:00 at night. On this particular night it was oftly warm andnpleasent out so I decided to take a shortcut across the Pine tree patch in between the forest and mynneighborhood.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
I had been walking for about 3 to 4 minutes across the tree patch and I began to notice a funky stench ofnsmell in the air, I just ignored it thinking it was a really bad smelling skunk. About a minute or two laternthe smell was at it's worst and I was then startled by the snapping sound of tree branches about 50 feetnbehind me. When I turned around to see what it was I could barely see it but I saw a shadowy, dark,nalmost totally black, 5 to 7 foot figure slowly walk back toward the forest.
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was the Middle of may, sometime early in the week, the enviroment around here is pretty wooded,nhilly, and full of tall grass, Lots of farms around so plenty of open fields. Also Lots of lakes, and creeks.
Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
I've heard strange things in the park by the woods that I saw this figure Plenty of times. The first I hadnever heard anything about Sighting of strange things is when I was younger and in grade school. Nownlike 5 years later I haven't heard anyone say anything. So far to my knowledge I'm the only one aroundnmy area who may have actually reported something
Additional comments
The sounds that I've heard have been strange chattering noises that are somewhat of a sound of anCoyote howl, bird chirping and slight squeaking. Sometimes these noises have been loud, and sometimesntheir quiet. The only times I've actually heard things are at night. I've seen strange tracks around in thenwoods before but never thought twice about them.
