My family has lived near the Colorado mountains all my life so naturally, we save up all our money to rent a cabin in the mountains before it gets too cold to handle. This year I was about ten and this had become routine, however, this year we had rented a different cabin than usual. This one was miles away from anywhere (naturally).
We arrived in the middle of the day so everyone was busy unpacking for the night and I wandered off. No one really worried too much about me as I mentioned, we had gone to cabins for years and I had never been eaten by a bear before. As a walked, I approached a tall tree line that I could hardly see into. In front of the trees was a couple small, animal carcasses which I don’t recall being disturbed by, but that was likely because I didn’t have time to react before I heard a deep, faint growl from the trees.
My father had warned me about what to do if I heard a growl out here, he told me to not make too much noise and slowly back away.
Before I had the chance to take a step back, I heard my brothers voice. But it wasn’t his voice. It sounded as if someone had been tampering with a recording because it sounded layered and distorted. Also, the things the voice said were off. Like something poorly imitating a human. ” Sister, come here, I need help”ect. It was like someone had just learned a foreign language and was throwing in random words. Even at ten years old I knew something was wrong. I backed away slowly just as my father told me to.
The voice huffed like it was frustrated and it became more deep, more twisted, and more disturbing. It called out, “PLEASE. I NEED HELP. IT HURTS” ect. It still sounded like someone poorly acting or someone who didn’t understand emotions properly because it was more angry sounding than afraid or hurt. I turned into a full sprint as fast as my little legs could carry me. I heard the voice about halfway towards the cabin but at some point, it just stopped but I must have been too scared to notice. I reached the car where my dad and brother had been unpacking and I didn’t say a word.
I never looked for tracks, I never went back to the tree line, I never even left the cabin until it was time to drive home. Five years later I have not told any of my family members. The friends that do know say they believe me 100%.
The only reason I am sharing this story now is because I had another experience two weeks ago.
To keep things short, while I was exploring a woodsy area near my friend’s backyard, I heard my brother’s familiar voice. ” Sister, come here. I need help.” My brother is in the air force and has been stationed out of state for two years. My friend, knowing the whole story from five years ago, grabbed my wrist and we both ran back into her house and cleansed the entire house top to bottom.

So this is a short but scary story. I am a 14 year old who lives in colorado springs colorado i walk home from school on a pretty much daily basis. I live about 5 miles away from school but. It was one rainy day at about 3 30 pm and i head footsteps behing me. I attributed it To be nothing given the fact that there was many dogs and pets in this area. I started hearing repeated a growling noises and once again I brushed it off which was a mistake because there is many pets and wildlife in this area that I walk through. I attributed it to be nothing because we were any very highly populated area at this time we were right next to a main road and there was always cars driving by at any time of day or night.I had a terrible Habits it of listening to music as I was walking home and/or being on my phone.This was Winter so the Sun was already starting to S at about 4 o’Clock. It’s this type of night where everything takes on more of an evil tone shadows become more sinister. And everything is just all around a little more Scary.I love to step out in my backyard every night with my dog Before I Go to Sleep.I seen an animal that was about 6 and a 1/2 feet tall behind my shed reaching his arm around the shedIt had glowing red eyes , jet black for , and a strong muscular build. It put his finger to its lips as if to say be quiet and disappeared back behind my shed. That’s all I have seen of this a monster but I am now scared of the dark and of my own backyard.

The colossal thing in the woods

Let me start the story off with a little background. My name is Noah and I live far out in the country, where you have to drive about 45 minutes to get to town. Or to any store, unless you’re going to a liquor store. So basically there’s nothing around but trees, and a small lake. I’ve always loved walking around in the woods, it’s calming. It’s always quiet, with the occasional birds chirping. It was the middle of summer in 2017, and I was 15. Walking around in the woods as I usually do, but things felt weird. I felt a certain stillness.

No sound, not even the birds. I brushed it off, since it wasn’t too bad. Keep in mind it was around 9:30 pm. When the sun was just going down, I would be out there until about 11:30 pm. My parents were always okay with it because they’d grown up there and knew the woods very well. My father even hunted in those same woods. That night I was walking around as usual and heard a loud crunch from behind, with instinct I jumped and turned around. But nothing was there, again I brushed it off as some animal. Like a deer or a coyote as I’d seen them wondering around here before and they never bothered me. I kept walking but something again, wasn’t right. I felt like I was being watched and not just the normal someone looking at you. I felt paranoid and very panicky. What I felt had it’s eyes on me wasn’t human, it was something way more sinister. I decided to go back to my house for the fear of something bad happening to me.

Fast forward about 20 minutes, and I’m back at home. I went to bed as usual, but woke up in the middle of the night. I looked at my clock and it was 3 am. I got up looking outside at the trees surrounding my house. But as I scanned the woods, I saw something; something glowing. Two bright yellow eyes, and it wouldn’t of been as bad if they weren’t nearly 7 feet off the ground! Otherwise I’d be able to assume it’s a wolf or something. But this, this was not something even remotely close to human or animal. I stared, unable to move, then it left. I didn’t sleep that night, I laid awake wondering what it was. The next day I decided to be dumb me and go out in the woods again, it’s Sunday night by the way. Around the same time I went out and walked around. Every so often I heard footsteps behind. Not normal light footsteps of an animal. Huge and loud footsteps. I instantly thought of the thing I saw last night, turned around and headed back home. When I heard another crunch, I looked behind me and there it was….. A huge creature. It had a wolf head, deer legs, huge human like hands but they had claws, it’s arms hung down nearly to the ground. It’s body was fuzzy and matted. It had yellow glowing eyes and sharp teeth. Every tooth was as big as a wolf’s canine tooth. I screamed louder than I’ve ever screamed before, and tried to back up slowly so I didn’t anger it with sudden movements, but I tripped and fell backwards. The creature growled loudly, not any normal grow. it sounded like clicking with the miss of a lion and a jet engine. Very deep and loud. I scrambled onto my feet and ran, I heard it behind me, it was so close I could feel it’s hot breath on the back of my neck. Then it’s low growl again, echoed through the forest, louder than before and I felt a sharp pain go down my back and I screamed in agony, but kept running. I couldn’t run much longer, I was out of breath and I wanted to collapse from the pain in my back. I finally reached the treeline and saw my house. But then I noticed everything was silent again, the creature was gone.

So me, my family, my boyfriend, and his family went to Europe for a vacation. Me and my boyfriend who we’ll call John went for a walk in the woods. He and i both loved adventure which is what is one of the things that brought us together. My boyfriend brought a pocket knife for protection. We stayed in those woods for a while, so much so that it was turning dark. We stopped for a while because we were getting tired on our way back we saw something terrifying. A large half man, half dog like creature it was extremely large and muscular it had large sharp teeth, and large claws. I froze while my boyfriend looked toward it not backing up or getting scared. Now he was large 7 ft 6in he was a giant and went to the gym often nearly everyday for an hour while i was a 6ft and skinny teenager. But he had something strange happen to him when he got pissed his hair stood up on edge and his muscle mass somehow grows we still dont know what it is. thats when his hair a stood up and his muscle mass increased. He grabbed his knife, he told me to go to the apartment so i ran and i heard alot of grunts and growls. I got home and a bit later so did john he was badly wounded a large gash from his left shoulder to the middle of his left pec and an scar on his face from his chin to his lower lip. He said what had happened the monster charged at him he moved but it still got him in his chest good. Than he shoved the knife through its face and pulled it back out cutting it’s face in two not before it got him in the jaw with is claw than made his way back to the apartment before passing out, he was taken to the hospital. He’s fine now but for a while couldn’t feel his shoulder or move it well either. Through some research i found out what we saw was a rougarou. If john wasn’t there i don’t what would’ve happened.

Me and my Friend were sitting at his house on a nice hot summer day being bored. When we decided to go explore a trail in his woods. So we got ready to go on this little adventure. We got his dog to go with us on this walk, cause my friend weird stuff had happened out in those woods. But I didn’t believe him, so we started walking through his woods until we got to a trail. We started walking on it, he kept trying to scare me as a joke but it wasn’t really scaring me. So we kept walking enjoying the sun and the adventure. But than his dog starting whining, and his dog is bigger and didn’t really get scared that easily. So I was just walking minding my business when my friend started runnin with his dog on a leash. He looked at me and said run, I didn’t believe him cause he was trying to joke around with me before, but he looked back at me with a really pale and terrified face and yelled “RUN”. Than a sudden rotten smell got really bad, so I looked back and there it was towering over me just observing me, this thing was not human, it had long fingers, pale skin almost as white as snow, and it stood over almost 2-3 feet. Mind you I’m like 5’8, I was scared so I took off without hesitation, the thing got on all fours and took off into the woods. As me and my friend were running I looked over in the woods next to us, and there it was keeping up with us, running on all fours like some kind of animal, than me and my friend got to the little trail that led to his house so we booked it back to his house, I have never felt so scared in my life.

Than, like a week later I came back to his house and we were bored so I said “why don’t we go back into those woods and see what was really there.” So we did, just me and my friend. We walked through the little trail to get to the bigger trail. And as soon as we got to the big trail, we heard a really distorted, high pitched scream nothing like I’ve heard before, that spooked us to the point where we started running back to his house as fast as we could. When we got back to his house, we started doing reasearch on what it could have been. It turned out to be something like a wendigo. So me and him agreed to never go out into those woods again.

I was about 8 or 9 years old when this happened, but I have an eidetic memory and this is still crystal-clear in my mind to this day. Now, for some context, I’m 1/8th Blackfoot (Native American), and not normally superstitious, but this is what convinced me the supernatural is real. I was out hiking in the mountains and I had my .22 rim-fire rifle slung across my chest. I heard a shrill, disturbing, noise from behind me, which I thought was an animal in pain… Most likely a large grizzly bear or puma. Now, I’m still a smaller guy, so I ran like hell uphill to the nearest tree that I could climb easily. That… thing… tried to come up after me, so I hit it in the head with the butt of my rifle, and It. Was. Pissed. It roared at me, and I froze. I spent the next three fucking days and nights stuck in that damn oak, trying to out-wait the bastard. Finally, it left, and I jumped down and ran like hell for the family property, 15 miles to the south. The thing chased me the whole way home. The only reason I’m alive now is because my Great-Grandpa Leroy put an incendiary round from a Barret .50 cal. into it’s skull. It burst into flames and collapsed inward on itself. (He’s a retired Marine Corps Sniper, and still has 20-20 vision.)

I am a Cryptozoologist, but before I tell you my story let me tell you how I got interested in the Crypto world. When I was little I would spend a lot of my summers in the Blue Mountains with my Aunt and Uncle who had a turkey farm. They had other animals, but turkeys was their main income.

I was 6 years old and it was about 4:30 for 5:00 in the morning and I was going with my Uncle out to take care of the animals and to grab a baby bunny to play with for a little while. My Uncle put his hand on my should and told me to be quiet and he will not hurt me all he wants is his breakfast. I was trying to figure out what he was talking about, when all of a sudden this huge hairy man stepped out from behind a massive tree and starred at us for what seemed like hours, but it was probably on a few seconds. He then reached over the fence grabbed a turkey and slung it around to break it’s neck. Stared at us for a few seconds more and stepped back behind the tree and disappeared. I asked my Uncle Jim what was that, now my Uncle was a Yurok Indian and he told me that it was an ancient human, he told me that he supplies him with food once in awhile and the ancient people let him live on their land. So I became hooked and became a Cryptozoologist.

I live in Oklahoma, one day my son and I was coming home from visiting family and we was driving through the town where I grew up. My son asked if we could go to the old Union Cemetery and see what we could hear (it is supposed to be haunted) So anyway I agree and we drive to it. By this time it was pretty dark now my son was doing an internship with the Oklahoma State Game Warden and my son had called and told them we would be out there, you have to let an official know if you are going to be in a Cemetery after dark.

My 7th grade camping nightmare

Last year in 7th grade, we took a camping trip for a few days. Once we got there we set up our tents and got into our hiking teams but something about the whole trip seemed off. From the moment we set foot on the camping ground something felt off but I haven’t been camping all to often so I pushed it off. The day went on with us hiking a few hikes and when we got back from our hikes we started a fire and had marshmellows and told stories. After we all went to our tents I was on my phone for a little than I tried to go to sleep. After about 15 minutes, I opened my eyes and saw shadows on the tent wall but I pushed it as being shadows cast by the fire and after that I fell asleep. The next day was the same as the last, we hiked again and did a night hike. When we got back we had to go to bed so after we went to the bathroom we went to our tents and wemt to sleep. Just like the last night I couldn’t go to sleep quickly so after about 15 minutes I opened my eyes and say the same shadows but the fire was out. I closed my eyes for 5 minutes then opened my eyes to see a figure crouching outside the tent. It started to circle the tent until it stopped in front of the tent zipper so I closed my eyes and fell asleep after that. In the morning I was standing outside the tent waiting for my friend to get out and when I looked down at the ground I saw footprints but they weren’t made by a human, but by some animal. I didn’t say anything to my friends or classmates and later in the day, we went on 3.5 mile hike. We were separated into 3 groups, a group of fast hikers being the first group, a group of average speed hikers being the second group and a group of slow hikers being the last group. We were a little more than half way done with the hike when we stopped at a little stream to cool down and look at. I was sitting on a fallen tree when I looked into the forest when behind one of the trees was a tall black figure. I thought that I was hallucinating because of dehydration from running out of water or from being tired so I thought nothing of it. On the way down about a quarter of the way, I saw the same thing but closer to the trail. I was now convinced that I wasn’t hallucinating so I was looking around the whole way back down. The night was fine and the next day was normal and I didn’t tell anyone from my school about this and we have another camping trip coming up and I’m not sure I wanna go for fear of running into things like that again.
