i live in wilmington, north carolina and have been following up of the mystery animal and have talked to wildlife services.
before hearing anything at all about this situation a friend and i had just gotten off work and couldn't sleep so we decided to head out for the
beach to watch the sun come up (we get off work around 3-sh and were completely sober and wide awake). i cant remember the exact date but it was a
weekday and about 2 1/2 weeks ago from today.
we take the right off of oleander to get to the beach and out of a bunch of trees this HUGE animal just out of the bushes on the left makes it across
all THRE LANES IN 2 BOUNDS! and ran down a trail on the right side into a bunch of trees. here are the details of the animal and the surroundings:
Body: running on all fours, big enough to stretch across a whole traffic lane and then some, bulky in the front and smaller in the back (almost heyena
like but its main features were exactly like a wolf), in all its size (L,W,H) would honestly be most comparable to my car which is a mini cooper.
Fur: about 6in. long give or take an inch and was very very thick and actually really flowy and shiny, almost like human hair, and was black with
grey/silver mixed in. not at all matted or dirty like wild animal fur. i cannot say whether or not it had a tail, if it did it wasn't obvious.
Eyes: my headlights were directly on it and the eyes did NOT reflect like most animals. they were actually a very bright yellow in color (really close
to the smiley face yellow).
the surroundings: 6AM, almost sunrise, noone else driving on the road or walking anywhere nearby. warm and crystal clear night. still completly dark
except for a tiny line of pink were the sun was waiting to come up. a few street lamps. 5 minutes to the beach. my friend and i were driving by a
small strip mall with a gated nieghborhood right before it. there were thick trees on the left and right sides right before the thick brick wall
around the houses and a small trail on the right into the woods. plenty of places to hide and to make a clean get away if needed.
this whole event lasted maybe 35 sec. it ran so fast it almost seemed like its feet weren't even touching the ground, but my headlights were straight
on it and we saw the animal clearly. it didn't pay attention to us at all, it was def. in a hurry to get somewhere.
after the sun came up we parked and walked up the road to the trail it ran down and looked for anything like fur, etc. and we took a cell phone pic.
of a the only thing it left behind which was a 3 toed footprint in the sand which was bigger then my hand stretched out. one of the news articles on
the wilmington star news website had a picture of a pawprint taken at one the scenes that matched the one i found perfectly, even in size.
only later did i get home and check for any strange things in the news for the area and came across the bolivia articles. i tried calling wildlife
services and after being passed around i finally talked to someone who told me the animal was 3 different things and then asked if he could meet me to
talk about it. i never called him back tho because they were acting strangley about it and sounded like what they did know about the animal wasn't
much more then the next guy.
it wasn't a coyote,wolf (not even a timber wolf), dog, bear, deer, etc. it did most resemble a wolf, as far as the head and legs, but everything else
just had something off about it. im hoping to be a cryptozoologist one day so it really was one of the greatest sights ive ever seen, ive still been
looking for it at night as much as i can, but nothing else so far. ill keep everyone posted tho. but i would really love some feed back on what you
