October 2019

I was walking my dog's and, and it was getting dark. I observed my dogs smelling everything and acting like they were bred to be hunting dogs. I was talking to my dogs saying things like 'what is it what do you smell?' It was then I heard a call like nothing I can describe. It sounded like kaw kaw. My dog's and I all stopped and froze. I looked up and said 'What is that!' It was gray arms were bent at the elbows I thought perhaps there were 2 small ones with it for the fur under the arms appeared a little darker than the rest. It stood about 7 feet tall and had blue eyes that were shiny. It wasn't fat or thin. It looked at me and I looked at it and it shuffled it's feet and turned into the woods. I've never seen anything like it or heard anything like it. I turned around with my dog's and came home in disbelief in what had just happened.
