So, a little background info. I am a 15 Male, I’m 6’3, and 215 lbs. I live in a small town in southern Mississippi, and I love the outdoors. About a mile down my road, there is a bridge that runs over a creek, Thomas creek to be exact. About 2 weeks ago, me and my friend are off school, and are feeling adventurous, so our emotions get to us and we go down to the creek. Now I haven’t been in and 3 years because my mom told me to stop going there because crackheads and junkies hang around there doing God knows what. But my mom was at work and my friend just so happened to have a truck. So along we went, 2 teenagers looking for a good time. We made it and as soon as I got out the truck, I was hot with this foul odor, like rotting meat, and when I looked to my right, I found the source of the stench. A beheaded deer, guts spilled, and bones exposed. I thought it was roadkill, but the way it was laying and having its bones in tact, crossed out that possibility. My friend presumed it to be a hunter dumping his kill, but hunters usually dont cut the stomach open and let the deer’s organs show. We brushed it off and walked down the side of the bridge, hopped the guards rails, and made our way underneath. Now when we got underneath, we found the usual graffiti, but I noticed something in particular that puzzled me. It was a dog print, but it was much larger than any dog or coyote print I’ve every seen. We dont have bears this far down south, so it couldn’t be that. But what made it weird was that is was all by itself, just one and it was half the size of my shoe. I wear a size 13 and that meant this paw was at least 6 in long. This freaked us out, and we started walking back up the bridge to the road when we paused. There was another one, another deer, and we looked to the tree line and sure enough, another one. They were just like the the first one we found, beheaded, guts everywhere, except these ones had the first and skin still. This means they couldn’t be from hunters. At that moment, my friend said “dude, we need to get the f**k out of here!” And I agreed, we started walking when I told him to stop. There were footsteps to our left, not going anywhere, like they were pacing in place. I bent down slowly and picked up a rock, and flung it into the woods. At that moment, the footsteps stopped and there was silence. My friend whispered “Dont freak out but there is something at the bank of the creek, as soon as I day run, you better f**king run!!” At that moment I turned, and saw the most unnatural thing I’ve ever seen. It was almost like a deer, but it was on it’s back legs. It had long, lanky arms, and had long sharp claw like finger nails. It was easily 2 feet taller than me and had the skull of a deer, with razor sharp teeth and a whole mouth full of them at that. Its eyes were jet black and took up 25% of its face. Its ribs were exposed and its torso was unnaturally skinny and mangled. Its legs were like a goat’s legs. I was frozen. I was almost in tears, and before I was about to faint, IT SPOKE. It was like a raspy voice speaking through a megaphone. I could make out what it said, and when I did, I almost dropped to my knees. Ot said in its raspy voice, “Dude, we need to get the f**k out of here!” But it was so wrong, it mimicked what my friend had said earlier, and right after that, I snapped back to reality. I grabbed my friend’s collar and pulled him over the guard rail. At that moment he snapped back too, and we ran to his truck that was only 29 feet away. We hopped I’m and before I closed the door I heard, “Come back soon, I’m always needing company.” That’s when i burst into tears, i prayed to God and we sped out of there in a hurry. But the worst part was, is that we had to turn around l, because we had come from the direction of my house, and to get back to it we had to cross the bridge again. We told each other that we would cross the bridge and closs our eyes, even while we were driving. And that’s what we did. We got back to my house and prayed. The rest of the day was uneventful thankfully, and my friend went home. Later that night tho, my dad came home from working off shores and he came to tell me goodnight. I was asleep and as soon as he opened my door, I woke up screaming. I had a night terror of that creature coming to get me in my house. But when u realized that it was just my dad, I hugged him crying. I was a rough kid but that scarred me for life. I told my dad everything, and was scolded by disobeying my mother’s warnings. But when he saw how distraught I was, he said he would check it out tomorrow. I told him no but he said he would call his buddies and they would go together. Tomorrow came and I couldn’t sleep the previous night. My dad left with two family friends. And they were back within 15 minutes. They were pale as ghosts and said never to go back there, EVER. I went to my room, as they made some phone calls, I presume to the police and animal control, because not even 20 minutes later. they were both at our houses they escorted my dad to the creek, and after that they came back to my house. They took me to the station, and they took a statement. I wassoo confused as I just wanted that creature found and killed. But apperently, my dad and the police found much more than what me and my friend did. They are the creature, and fired at it, but they didnt kill it, even hitting hit with most of their rounds of ammo. The creature supposedly ran off and they searched the area, and what they found was shocking to say the least. They found a pole of bones and bodies of animals, pets, and even two humans, one of which was a missing girl from 3 years prior. The creature was never spottedagain, but I believe un the super natural, and i believe that a Skinwalker was the culprit terrorizing thomas creek. To anyone who lives near Hattiesburg, Mississippi, be aware of your surroundings, because eyou never know what moments may be your last.
