Yeah, I saw that on the news.
I thought the picture looked familiar.....although I have seen FAR FREAKIER things in Louisiana!
I have had a freaky encounter with something in the woods. Years ago I was at my friend Stephen's house.
He lives in Clinton Louisiana. His family has a bunch of land, most of it overgrown and untamed. We were on the back of his property working on my
car. The garage is about a mile from the main house, and the only lights were the shop lights in the garage. It was around 11:00pm or so, and I kept
hearing something outside. I discounted it thinking it was a dog or something, but I kept hearing this sort of grunting sound. I asked Stephen about
it, and he told me about weird things that have happened on their property. Slaughtered animals, weird tracks, strange noises etc. They just chalked
it up to coyotes, or some other predator we have in these parts, but the bite and claw marks weren't really consistent to any of these animals.
Anyway, we started to drive back to the main house probably about 2:00am. As we drove I caught a glimpse of something running along side the car in
the woods. We stopped, and shined a spotlight on it, then we saw red glowing eyes, and then it took off. It was big, bigger than a large dog. It
didn't really look like a coyote, any kind of cat, or bear. Not sure what it was.
We looked around the area the next morning, and found some weird tracks in the mud. Couldn't really tell much as they were very distorted. Stephen
said he sees those often. Probably just a known creature, but you never know!
