Much of what is posted here can't be taken seriously IMO,-but this is a true
story. This event happend in the county of Finnmark, Norway, and before I tell the story itself, please let me describe the county of Finnmark:
This county is the northernmost region of Norway, and is located well above the arctic circle. Finnmark is not densly populated, only about 70.000
people live there in an area a little smaller than Ireland. That gives you a hint on how desolate this place is. It borders Russia, Sweden and Finland
and is populated by Norwegians, Finnish decendants and the native population;-the Sami (Lappish) people. The story was told to me by a lappish woman
in her mid-fifties, and the event was experienced by her late uncle when he was up on the tundra picking cloudberries. Since this region is scarcly
populated, and mostly tundra you will spot people from a long distance, and while picking berries the man spotted someone approaching him and his dog
from quite some distance away. He continued picking berries, knowing that he would soon enough get his chance at talking to this person approaching
him. (You don't meet someone in places like that without having a chat about the weather and where to find cloudberries etc.)
After a while his dog started whining and acting funny. Usually the dog would welcome strangers, but now it was trembling and whining and refused to
go and meet up with the approaching stranger. The owner of the dog though this to be very strange indeed and therefore paid attention to the
The first thing he noticed was the small size of the man approaching them.
Lappish people tend to be smaller than the regular Scandinavian, but this guy was really short, no more than 5 feet. Well, he concentrated on picking
berries again until the dog really started to display signs of fear and uneasiness, and then he looked up and caught sight of the strangest creature
he had ever seen. The skin was black,-not like the skin of a negro, but BLACK. It's eyes where yellow and the thing that really scared him more than
anything else was the pure evil that radiated from the creature's eyes. The dog was so disturbed that the man tried to calm it down, and when he
raised his gaze the creature had vanished.
The first thing I asked the woman who told the story was if her uncle had been delutional or suffering from any kind of mental illness or nervous
problems. I also asked if he had been fond of drinking. The answer was a no on both accounts. Her uncle had been a christian who hated drink like the
plague, and he had never suffered from mental illness or nervousness of any kind.
I have no idea of what kind of creature this man encountered, but I think we can rule out hallucinations and the like since the dog obviously also saw
