March 2015

I heard a few in Bryson City NC last week...I rented a cabin in the mountains to get away for a few days... our last night there me and my cousin couldn't sleep and woke up and watched tv in the living room... we heard something outside and I opened the side door and heard something 30 feet or more away from me grunting and screaming and ran thru the woods... I kept hearing whoop whoop for 2 hours after that like it was coming back and forth watching us... my brother and friend heard it as well... I did a call and it responded every time....it scared me to no end
