Summer (possibly August) 1987: 11:00PM: State Game Lands: Jackson Township: A man and his son often go out looking for animals at night. On this night they were playing a tape of a rabbit in distress. This call usually attracts raccoons, foxes and deer. On this particular night they heard the brush rustling as if an animal was approaching. This was followed by a strange vocalization. The sound wasn’t like a growl or a roar. This vocalization was a fairly loud, low pitched, and deep throated sound, as if it were echoing from deep within the chest. It actually sounded like something in agony. Whatever it was began breaking branches (the witnesses later examined the area and found some broken branches that were 3 to 6 inches thick and 5 to 6 feet off the ground). They shined their flashlights towards the area were the noises were coming from. The father saw 2 orange-red eyeballs set further apart then other animals. The creature had reddish-brown hair with a large hairy face, no nose, and no neck. The creatures’ large head sat directly on its broad shoulders. They didn’t notice an odor or look for footprints. The witnesses were looking down at the creature which was standing about 50 yards away, below in a meadow. It was difficult to estimate the height of the creature which was standing in some briars. The witnesses observed the creature for about 10 minutes. Submitted by: Paul Johnson.
