It was about noon. I had gone over to see my parents at their home and I had climbed up on my parents roof to see what repairs they had made to their
I was up there about 2-3 minutes and all of a sudden a huge shadow of a bird covered the whole house roof as it passed over, and I thought that was
kind of strange, so I looked up almost directly into the sun, and I held my hands over my eyes to block the sun. Above me maybe one hundred yards
above me were two huge birds circling me, looking directly down at me.
I was a little nervous seeing such large birds, they were much, much larger than eagles and buzzards. I watched them for a few more seconds and then
I got down off of the roof because they were that large, I felt like I would be carried off if I stayed up there any longer.
At 5'11" and 200+ pounds, it would take a huge bird to carry me off, and both of these birds looked like they could easily do it. I got down off
the roof and looked at them from under the eaves of the back porch. They circled again, and they flew east over the tree tops of the osage orange
trees at the half mile line to the east of their house a half mile away. They were huge as they flew over the trees.
I watched the news for days expecting to hear someone else make a report about those two birds. Their wing spans had to be very similar as the wing
span of a Cessna 150, and I've been around planes for a long time.
I've been around eagles, and vultures and great horned owls and these two birds dwarfed those types of birds, those birds had dark wings, but they
looked like regular birds all except the size.
One time I was even attacked by a mother great horned owl. I had been at the top of the temple nearby, feeding her fat fluffy baby chicks a rabbit I
had killed when all of a sudden the momma great horned owl swooped down from out of nowhere and hit me in the head broadside with her claws. I
thought someone had been hit me with a football in the side of the head at first until I saw her fly off. My brother had seen the whole thing happen,
it was a once in a lifetime scenario.
Another time my brother and I were hunting, I had just shot a huge 14 point buck during a heavy rain storm and we were tracking him. He had run into
a wide shelter belt of trees (about 20 yards wide) and I told my brother to take the other side and shoot to kill the buck if he saw him as we walked
the lenght of the shelterbelt of trees.
When we were half way down the shelter belt, there was a clearing and I could easily see my brother he was running at me and waving his arms in great
excitement and yelling my name. I thought he had seen the buck and he must be getting ready to come out in front of me from the shelter belt, so I
started looking forward again with the 7mm rifle ready once more.
But nothing came out in front of me. Then my brother was beside me out of breath and asking me if I saw it, and I told him no, I didn't see the
buck. He said, "not the buck", but "the creature stalking you". I said, what are you talking about, and he said that as we were walking along he
suddenly noticed a creature of some sort coming along behind me getting ready to get me, but his yelling must have scared it off.
He said it was big barrel chested and looked like a half wild dog and half ardvark. So.. there is that creature out there also, because maybe a year
or so later I saw the same creature as he described run right out onto the roadway right in front of my Honda car. Those areas are still very wild
areas. To me, it looked like a Hyena with a chest as big around as a 30 gallon drum, small narrower rear end, built like a buffalo but more dog like
with a very ugly face with a long snout; almost like a werewolf on all four legs, just like the ones in the movies.
