SC EP:320 Strange encounter in the woods

A listener writes “Hey Wes I just wanted to start out by saying that I’m a huge fan of the show.I wanted to share a possible encounter my dad and I had back in ’99.

We live in Southern California and decided to go camping in a remote area of the San Bernardino mountains. I was around 15 or 16 at the time. I don’t know where or how my dad found this place but it was out in the middle of nowhere, the place is called Paiute Canyon and it’s near Lytle Creek, anyway we got to the camp site and set up and were already finished with dinner and we’re just enjoying the sights from the campfire and we heard a very loud howl coming from our left.

The howl was a good deal away from us and was coming from the entrance to the canyon (there’s only one way in and one way out of this canyon which kind of resembles a horseshoe) and was very similar to the Ohio howls. At the time both my dad and I had never heard anything like that in the woods before. Whatever it was vocalized a few times and seemed to be getting closer. We kept wondering what the hell it was and decided to load up the guns. After the guns were all loaded up we were back at the campfire when we heard another vocalization (still from our left side) and then we heard a response vocalization coming from our rear right side. The response was more of a whoop. This kinda got us on our toes and pretty alert as to what was going on around us…”

My final guest will be sharing an encounter with a very strange creature about 10 years ago. I spoke to the witness and I am fascinated with her encounter.

Here is a small portion of her account: “We stopped dead in our tracks at the color alone, thinking at first its probably an animal but as we walked along this wood path our feet were heavy and loud and it didn’t move at all. To us we saw it in a profile stance, honestly it looked human… it was crouched , balancing high on its toes, arms hanging between the knees, but you could see they touched the ground between the legs at the time I remember this creature ill call it, looking very small but we were some distance away. It looked like it was starving…”
