I live in a rural part of eastern Europe so seeing wild animals is my everyday life. But what has happened to me and my friend last full moon has completely shocked me.
We were quite bored so we agreed to meet at night to take a walk around the area. We went to the village next to ours, about 2 kilometers away.
There is an old train station there, it’s a place where we like to hang out. The road passed us quickly, because we talked and joked on the way. After we got there, we spent a few minutes on the station platform and decided to come back because it was getting quite late. As we walked along the tracks, we heard a voice behind us “hey you, there on the platform”, we turned around and saw nothing.
I thought that some kids are making fun of us, but after a while somebody laughed some 20 meters behind us. I turned around and saw the most terrifying sight in my life.
A strange creature similar to a dog but with hairy human legs and a head that resembled that of a vulture was kneeling beside the tracks. It was staring at us with his black eyes. After a few seconds, it opened its mouth and said, “hey you, come here.” At this point, we turned around and started to run as fast as we could.
We reached the nearest lighted street and we stopped. The strange creature was no longer behind us.
After this experience, we returned to our homes as soon as possible.
I have lived in this area for 16 years, I have seen wild boars, deer and wolves, but this thing did not resemble any animal known to me. Since then, I have never left home after dark.
