I am moving tonight’s show for the members to tomorrow night. I want to include another guest into the show who ran into one of these creatures on Mount St. Helen’s.
A listener writes “My name is Ken, and I am a huge fan of your show. I am originally from Philadelphia, PA, but I’ve lived in Georgia with my girlfriend Amber for the last 5 years. Since I’ve been here I have had a few weird things happen, but last night might have been the weirdest.
Let me first say that I have always been a believer in Sasquatch and other paranormal phenomenon. Amber has always believed in the supernatural, but she didn’t believe in Bigfoot at all. When she was a girl scout back in 1987, they used to camp on an island called Rose Dhu Island in Savannah. She would have been 9 at that time. She told me when they would camp out at night they would be in their tents and each night they would hear someone quietly splashing through the swamp and walk up to their tents and start sniffing the air. The girls would be to scared to look out the tent because they thought it was a ghost. It wasn’t until Amber and I had an odd occurrence on Skidaway Island that she thought the ghost may have been a Sasquatch. There are a lot of fairly big alligators in those swamps, so I doubt a person would have been dumb enough to walk through that swamp.
On Memorial day 2015, we went for a walk through Skidaway Island State Park. It was a warm day and there weren’t any people in the section we were walking through. When I got out of the car I got this feeling someone was watching me. When I looked into the woods I heard a noise that sounded like a person with a very deep and raspy voice was trying to imitate a cow. It went “muuuuuuu, muuuuuuuu” twice and then everything was quiet. We thought this was strange because the closest cows were 5 miles away and this sounded like a creepy imitation of a cow. As we walked on the trail I kept getting the eerie feeling someone was paralleling us in the woods to our right, but I couldn’t see anyone. We came upon a sapling that was about 8 in in diameter that had been twisted and snapped so that it blocked the path. At this point I’m thinking some idiot is trying to be funny so I moved the broken limb off the path. At this point the whole atmosphere changed and everything went super quiet except for a rat snake that crawled in front of us and took off into the woods.
As soon as I moved the sapling a weird grunting noise started up in the swamp. I thought it was weird that a wild boar would be rolling in the swamp mud since alligators are common here. The noise sounded like a very deep boar’s grunt, or something close to it. Soon after this we both got a strange feeling of dread and being watched. The hair on our arms was standing straight up. I have never had such a weird feeling like this before. It was intense and was making me a little nauseous. We walked to the end of the trail and we started hearing weird noises that sounded like someone was smacking their shoulder with a wet hand. The smacks were in sets of 3. They were coming closer, but we didn’t hear anything moving at all. The only noise was the smacking sounds. At this point Amber, who thought Bigfoot was a joke, said something like “that’s Bigfoot, WTF!” I told her this was weird and I felt like we were in the Twilight Zone. I told her it must be some kind of animal, even though I thought it was Bigfoot too since her eyes started tearing up and she was scared. I picked up this huge broken limb and started yelling and I smashed a tree with it to scare away whatever this was. Right after I smashed the limb into pulp something snorted kind of like a pig and then grunted like an ape. It sounded like it was 10 ft behind us, but when we turned we couldn’t see anything. I knew it was time to go because this noise was a warning, and honestly it was scary as shit. We walked down the path with sticks in our hands and our heads down. When we got to the beginning of the trail another sapling was freshly broken and was placed in front of the trail, but it was not there when we first walked in. After we got past this trail that creepy feeling of dread and fear went away and all the regular animal noises were back. We smelled this horrible smell near a dirt mound that had a partial foot print that looked like someone dug their heel into the dirt and stepped over it. I was expecting to see a dead animal, but there was nothing their. I have never smelled anything worse than this. In Georgia there is a lot of road kill, but this was way worse. It smelled like someone mixed week old dead snake and deer together, urinated and dedicated on it, mixed that with the musky sweat of a gym looker, then through in an ammonia and skunky smell with some kind of indescribable sickening sweet odor. To this day I can remember what it smelled like. It was so pungent it got stuck in my sinuses for several hours after we left. Whatever this thing was that was trying to scare us disturbed me so bad that I could not go near any wooded areas for 6 months. We didn’t see anything, but I can’t think of anything else this’d could have been but a Sasquatch. As far as I know, this direct area had 1 recorded sighting in the mid 90’s.
Last year, when we lived in Savannah, we stayed at a friend name Jessica’s house because of a hurricane. This is only a few miles away from where we now live in Springfield, GA. One night Amber was outside smoking at 3:00 am when she said she heard a growling noise that sounded like Chewbacca, followed by a wood knock. Her friend Sarah lives a few streets away from us, and she has told us she too has heard wood knocks from the forest at night.
This all leads to the weird sighting we had last night. We were coming home from the supermarket at around 9:30 pm last night and were driving on Stillwell Road, which is the same area amber heard the wood knock from last year. This road has a creepy vibe and we always expect something to jump out on the road. Last night it happened, and we still can’t understand what we saw. On thee left of thee road is a field which I believe leads to a farm and then the woods. On the right of the road is nothing but thick woods. It seemed like something just appeared in the middle of the road out of nowhere and ran on all fours towards the woods, where it seemed tho just vanish before hitting the tree line. This thing was moving so fast and fluid that I just couldn’t believe it. The only thing that I have ever seen move faster was a cheetah. Not only was this thing fast, but it was fluid and it’s movement was nothing but graceful. We guessed it was about 5 ft long. It was 1 solid color, which was a dark brown similar to a moose’s fur. We saw it for about 3 seconds at a distance of between 100 and 50 ft, but neither of us can figure out what is was or how it seemed to appear out of thin air and vanish, unless it was moving so fast we didn’t get a chance to see where it came from or went. It was almost like seeing as ghost. I have seen strange things and lights in the sky, but this was just weird. Like I said, it was about 5 ft long, on all fours, was dark brown, the front “legs” seemed slightly longer than the back legs, there was no tail, no ears, no neck, no snout, had a thin waste, a ribcage slightly larger than the waist, no discernible facial features or eye shine, and ran like it was pushing off the group with it’s front legs. Amber said it moved like a rocking horse and reminded her of a lemur running, until I told her it looked to me like a stretched out sloth with long back legs that ran super fast while staying close to thee group. I just can’t figure out what this was Wes. I woke up at 3am Googling videos of animals running, but nothing matched. I am a logical person, but this was illogical and made no sense. Maybe you’ve heard of something similar? I am just confused and would have thought I hallucinated this event, but Amber saw the same thing. If you would like to talk about it feel free to give me a call.”
