Description of event: My son and I were sittting in the hot tub relaxing. My son was facing east, I was facing north with my eyes closed. We both heard rustling and branches cracking to the east. My son said look Mom! I opened my eyes and looked east where he was looking and saw this huge 'thing'. It looked like it was shoving blackberries in its mouth but, its eyes were on us. We just stared. It chewed for a second and just turned and walked off. It didn't even run. We got out of the hot tub and hopped over the short fence to where it had been but, we were too scared to try to go the direction it had gone. There was a rotten smell in the area. We talked about it and realized we have both smelled that smell before. I have looked several times for a dead animal to explain the smell but, we never found anything.
