hwy 211-grays hill rd.
Driving on hwy 211 9:00p.m. Just west of fir valley tavern in colton. A female crossed the that we had to stop the car from hitting her. All the time i lived on grays hill rd. I heard and recorded them until I moved in march 2004. I have very good recorded sounds


Description of event: My ex-wife and I saw in plain sight a female cross the road in front of our car. We had to stop very quickly or we would hit her. This happened at around 9:30p.m. We went back there the next morning and found where 2-3 had been standing watching traffic to cross the road.

From 2000- thru 2004 I heard many different calls from my bedroom from various times... the oddest at 9:30 a.m. This was the loudest call I had heard and it sounded like it was lost or looking for a younger one that was lost. I have never heard a creature with such a lung capacity. The volume was incredible and that was in broad daylight about half mile from my home. It woke me up immediately and I knew right away what it was.

I have excellent audio tape recordings that I recorded as I heard them through a magnified michrophone. Many times I had walked in the woods by the house and I felt the presence of them around me. I also found many footprints and the largest pile of feces that I had ever seen and my dog was very leery of that.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: One of these recordings is available in the Members Section]
