Salem County New Jersey (Class B) BFRO

June 1975

This happened in the spring of 1975 in Pennsville N.J. This part of town backed up to a wooded area that in turn merged with the wildlife refuge at Finns Point. I lived in an apartment complex that backed up to the woods. I was eleven years old at the time but remember it like yesterday. I was just after dark and I was taking the garbage out to the dumpster. Two friends of mine came running from behind the building in a panic. I ask what was wrong and they said they had seen a huge whitesh covered creature at the edge of the woods. These kids were a year or two younger then me. Me being the older decided to get my fathers 12 volt spotlight and take a look. As we made our way to the woods about 65 feet behind the nearest apartment, my flashlight caught a pair of glowing red eyes. About fifty feet from the edge of the woods. There appeared to be a large creature on two legs behind a stand of trees. The hair on my neck stood up and we all ran to tell our parents. No one believed us.
