I believe this listener is in the North Eastern, United States but I will find out.
A listener writes “I have had multiple encounters since 2000 but only one sighting 20 feet from my front porch in September 2017. It was actually in a 75 foot spruce tree on a limb about 15 feet up from the ground in my front yard.
It happened in late afternoon when I went out my front door to sweep my porch with a broom. I immediately felt a strong uneasy feeling of being watched so I quickly scanned my surroundings and noticed it in the tree.
OMG…it had the head and smiling face of a chimpanzee. It was covered with short dark brown hair and although I couldn’t see all of its body because of how it was positioned within the branches, I would guesstimate it to be between 6 to 7 feet with a lean but muscular physique like a young man who is athletic.
My reaction even surprised myself as I looked at it for maybe 10 seconds, looked down at my broom and started thinking in panic. What should I do? Did I really see that?
After a minute of sweeping and thinking, I got the courage to look back and there he was frozen in the same position directly facing me, smile from ear to ear but mouth not opened, and leaning forward.
So his feet, which I couldn’t see, would have been on a branch close to the trunk of the tree with his hands spread out on higher branches leaning forward. I would like to write “looking at me” but I really can’t say as I saw no pupil to the eyes.
I did see very little dark in the eyes if he was looking all the way to his right and a sliver of pupil remaind. It was frickin creepy as the whites of his eyes looked like the under belly of a trout.
Please tell me you’ve heard this before…”
