Describe sighting in detail:
This is hard cause I'm old and this started as a child, I was raised in the country and have lived in and played in these woods all my life. My dad was Native American and a cop and I didn't have many friends as a child, as I said I pretty much lived in these woods, I knew all the animals and could track most as I wanted, just a gift from being alone in the woods every day. I had one friend that lived in the small town here and we had a trail thru the woods from my house to his. It was pretty thick woods that had never been logged at that time. As I would be walking thru I'd here footsteps trailing me off just far enough in the woods that I could hear but not see them. It didn't take long utill instead of walking I would run thru the woods back and forth cause I noticed if I stopped it stopped thats what scared me a bit and made me start running instead of walking. This trail was a little over a half a mile.
It got so bad that we started walking out on the paved road instead of woods because of it. Got more and more closer and as kids it scared us, but then we could hear it off in the woods trailing us even then. You stop it stopped. Told my dad, finally, and he told me to stay out of the woods until he could try to find out what it was, he thought it was a panther. That scared me even more. Well all thru years after military service to make story shorter, I came back here after a bad work injury to try get life back.
My parents had left me house and I went without income for five yrs, it was about the only option I had. Started hearing brush cracking in woods, I was in my 50s at this time, went out one day to harvest garlic heard what sounded like a tree cracking, a large one and just a heavy thump on the ground that shook the ground an footsteps running away thru the woods. It spooked me pretty good. Next time, I had got a dog for company, I use to let him out at night to do his business before bedtime and he would just do normal like a dog run around find his spot an do his thing. One nigh I heard him growling real serious like and barking, he was the kind if something was in yard he would charge it an run it off, this time he had his tail between his legs and barking, but the growls wern't his, they came from the wood, finally something charged him. Now if he goes out after dark I have to be with him, something spooked him good.
I also have an old pear tree in back yard, two years in a row every pear on the tree has disappeared over nite, not a trace in tree or ground just gone.
Only sighting is in the field across the road. I saw a jet black figure, now when I say black I mean the blackest shiniest black you have ever seen. I seen, the head and shoulders running across field toward wood line, only a glimpse but know only one thing with that cone shaped head. But I only saw the head and one shoulder as it was running down the hill and that was all was visible.
Thats all I care to write about don't know if you are interested or not but as a child we did have military come to house said they were here to recover some part that fell off a helicopter, that was bullsh*t, and we were made to stay in house while they did what they did in the woods, kinda strange they needed armed soldiers standing guard while they did what they were doing.
