About a year ago, when I still had my learners permit (I was 16, so I was a late bloomer when it came to getting my license), I asked my dad to ride to town with me. I wanted to buy some Taco Bell after having plans cancelled at the last minute, because, ya know, who doesn’t eat their feelings? Anyways, on our way back, it was pitch black out. The lights on the car we had at that time were awful and almost useless, even the brights. Because of this, it was nearly impossible to see anything unless it was at least 2 feet in front of the car. The road to my house is way out of the way of town, and houses are scarce. I was only about a mile from my own house when suddenly, just in view, a small creature clumsily sprinted across the road. I knew I hadn’t imagined it, due to my father yelling “What the fuck?!” at the sight of it. The creature had the shape of a baby pig, no tail, no ears, and the legs of a fawn. It had no fur and its face shape resembled that of a horse skull, if that makes sense. I was shaken up from witnessing it, but tried to forget about it.
A few weeks later, I was sitting outside on my porch. It was dark out again, the only lights being the one above my front door and my neighbors flood lights above their shed. I was on the phone with my now ex boyfriend, talking about god knows what. I happened to look towards my neighbors shed for only a moment before I processed what I had looked at. The second I did realize, however, I told my ex to be quiet. I quickly turned my head towards the shed again, seeing the same small creature again. It was slowly, though more briskly than the first time I had seen it, walking towards the back of the shed. It didn’t have the same pinky tint to it anymore. It was now a snow white, and its front legs looked as if they were the arms of a malnourished child. I have anxiety as it is, so seeing something when I didn’t know whether it could hurt me or not, definitely scared me. I stood to my feet, shakily telling my ex what I was looking at. I could barely keep my grip firm on my phone as I looked back towards the shed. The creature had made its way around to the other side of the shed and was now facing my neighbors house. I sometimes get so anxious I’ll burst into uncontrollable laughter, and I just happened to do that at that moment. Luckily, the creature didn’t seem to notice. At that, I booked it back into my house.
I didn’t think to look up what the creature could be until after me and my ex were no longer together, so probably about 10 months later. I googled something along the lines of “small white cryptid”. The first result that caught my eye was a Dover demon, which are mainly spotted in Dover, Massachusettes. I looked more into them, when I discovered another interesting creature. The Mannegishi. They are most commonly known in cree folklore. I don’t know much of anything about Native American tribes, so I decided to look up where they would be. I looked at a Cree wikipedia page only to see…..Canada. Neither of the creatures that resembled what I had seen have been spotted anywhere close to my neck of the woods. I haven’t done much research since then (it’s been about 4 or 5 months), but if anyone has any suggestions about what kind of crytpid in the Middle Georgia area this may be, let me know.
