Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
Running home from cross country practice. I ran through some protected woods as a short cut
Describe what you heard / found / saw
I heard three high pitched screams. They couldn't have been made by a human. I also heard a loud thudnbehind me. I ran before it got closer.
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was October around 6:45. It was a cool night about 45 degrees.
Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
Apparently there was an old Lenape Indian tale about a man bear that sang like death. It may have beenncalled awashawaugh but I am not sure. An old man also had heard the screams a few years before me
Additional comments
I will not walk through woods alone since then
