OBSERVED: I was going to feed rabbits I raised, when I heard someone walking through the brush, when I looked I saw a dark figure of what looked like a man. When I said “hello” it swayed from side to side and studied me, then began to approach me, I then could see very deep eye sockets oddly shaped, and it was covered in black hair. I turned and ran to the house, no sounds were heard. I was twenty feet or less from the creature when I saw it.
ALSO NOTICED: In a nearby wood my friend was riding his mini bike. He had stopped to take a break when this creature charged through the woods into the clearing where he was stopped. It was sweating, with a beet red face and winded. He started his bike, startling the creature. He took off to home and he also told me of seeing strange feces in a nearby abandoned barn during the same year.
