My name is Paul, I was 15 when this encounter occurred. I was with 2 of my best friends who don’t want there names stated so I’ll call them Matt and Joe, we live in the more rural area of New York. We haven’t told this story to ANYONE, and the three of us decided to tell it here. We don’t care if no one believes us, but we know what we saw and it will haunt us forever. I still have nightmares of this encounter and sleep with knife not far from my bed.
It was a bright night, full moon, a very peaceful night. I was at my friend Joe’s house who is just up the block. Being young teenage boys you tend to do some dumb things. The trail is right down the road from our street, so we decided that once Joe’s mother went to sleep we would sneak out and head to the rail trail. It was approaching midnightwhen Joe’s mother fell asleep. We live in a pretty wooded area, and we have seen coyotes before, so to make us feel “safer” we brought our airsoft guns, some m-88 firecrackers and a flash light that could light up something 100 feet away. Airsoft guns hurt and probably could protect us from coyotes, but it would not protect us from what we saw.
