Becky writes “My 16 year old grandson just had an encounter last night! He spends most of his time in the woods and so it was not unusual for him to be out at 9 p.m. . He had his dog with him and apparently she was afraid( but wouldn’t leave him) for some reason. He heard a noise and he switched on his flashlight and there it was. I’m not real happy about this because I have known all along that they were real and they were here and now have been substantiated.
He was so stunned he couldn‘t move but he said that it looked as surprised as he was. River is not the kind of person that shows emotion a lot, but when that boy called me he was badly shaken. He said it wasn’t a whole lot taller than him so it had to be a juvenile. He didn’t believe in boogers and teased me because I did! That’s why he was never afraid to go tromping around in the woods at night by himself. As a matter of fact he preferred to be a loner. It was a point of pleasure for him to be out there feeling at peace because for 10 years he had an abusive stepfather until that finally came to an end about 3 years ago. He spent a lot of time with me and his Pop. He and I have a very, very special relationship. We understand each other.
Now he said to me,” Grandma I’m never going into the woods at night ever again.” My great fear is that, if indeed it was a juvenile, you know Papa or Mama had to be pretty close by and I’m so afraid what could have happened to my grandson. Well thanks for letting me get this off my mind and heart.”
I am on the process of contacting her grandson.
