Arriving home from dinner, a couple decided to go and check on their small orchard and garden. This area was surrounded by a six foot high chain link fence topped with barbed wire; to keep out the deer. As he approached the fence, the husband was shocked to observe "some sort of ape-like creature" in his tomatoes and zucchini. The man further described the creature to have stood around 6' tall, covered in dark brown hair and looked like a big chimpanzee. The creature gave one or two quick glances before noticing the witness. It then moved quickly, like an ape, utilizing its arms and legs for mobility, moved to the end of the enclosure, then climbed over the fence. It then disappeared into the woods. Later in the week, the gentleman was walking through the woods with his son, and found a densely overgrown spot from which a terrible odor emanated from.
1987, Summer (Possibly August), 11:00PM, State Game Lands, Jackson Township:
As they were out looking for animals late a night, a father and son have an unusual encounter. On this particular evening, the duo decided to play the calls of a rabbit in distress. Usually when playing this call, they attract raccoon, fox, or even deer. While playing the call this night, they heard brush rustling as if something was approaching them. The rustling was followed by a strange vocalization. The men describe the sounds as being fairly loud, low pitched and deep throated - as if it were coming from deep within the chest, and in agony. Branches started breaking, and the father shined his flashlight on the area. He then observed two orangish-red eyeballs, further apart than other animals. It was then they observed that this was an unknown creature to them. They further described it as having reddish-brown hair, a large hairy face, no nose and absent a neck. They stated the head sat directly on its broad shoulders. No odor or footprints were observed. From their vantage point, height was hard to determine as they were looking down onto the creature. The sighting last for about ten minutes. -Courtesy of Dr. Paul Johnson.
