Yell County, Arkansas
Very mountainous surrounded in hardwoods. This is also a very rocky area,
mixed with small streams and rivers.
I have been actively searching and researching this creature for a few
years now, and I decided to take a ride to this area for this purpose.
There have been numerous reports in surrounding counties over the years,
and also in the Ozark and Ouachita National Forests. I arrived at the location
around 12:45 in the afternoon. I was making the climb to the top in my
SUV when I saw an observation deck to the right. I pulled off the small
road and was walking to the deck, which overlooks miles and miles of country,
including the Arkansas River, Lake Dardanelle, and some of the Ozarks.
I noticed a group of people on the observation deck, talking and taking
pictures, so I stopped short (about 200 feet) and just went as close to
the edge of the cliff as I could to see what I could see. I immediately
heard very loud and clear "gibberish" coming from over the edge and somewhere
down the side of this mountain. I could not see anything while looking
down this cliff because my view was obstructed by pine trees and large
boulders. The incline was very steep and no man could have successfully
climbed down unless he had the proper equipment. But as I stood there in
awe, the "talking" took place for at least 5 minutes. I assumed there were
at least two creatures communicating, and I remember thinking then and
now: what else could it have been? They made grunting sounds and there
were no high pitched sounds at all. I kept looking but just could not see
anything. After cursing myself for not having my hand held tape recorder
with me, I finally continued up the mountain and drove around. This was
the only event that took place with me on that day. Of course, the area
would be excellent habitat for these creatures, as they would have unlimited
sources of food and water. Wildlife include bear, deer, coyote, bobcat,
and nearly every small game animal. Also unlimited fish in the waterways
surrounding the area, along with fruit trees in certain areas.
of Witness: On my days off
work and many nights too, I take rides around my county, and sometimes
I go for longer drives (like this one). Gas prices though, have limited
my traveling lately, but I do spend quite a bit of time in the woods in
my county (Pulaski), and I often travel to Saline and Perry Counties where
part of the Ouachita National Forest is located. I like to travel to areas
where recent sightings have been reported. My main reason for traveling
to XXXXX that day (which is about 90 miles one way) was because of recent
sightings in and around the nearby area.
of Creature: N/A
Notes: I still think
that there may be continuing activity in our woods behind our mobile home.
I submitted a report to you about three years ago about a pair of red eyes
watching me. I have had continued "events" over the past few years in these
woods. Just two nights ago about 1 am, I was awakened by a loud crashing
through the woods, just inside the tree line I think. I laid there and
finally got up and went outside and could clearly hear bipedal movement
just inside our woods. It stopped abruptly after our outside light came
on. I checked the woods where the sounds came from yesterday after work.
No tracks could be found because it is so rocky under the leaves, but I
did find three young, green trees broken off about six to six and a half
feet up. the trees stand about 30 feet tall and have a diameter of about
five to six inches around where they were snapped and hanging to the ground.
If you need any more info, feel free to email me as I love to talk about
(Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:
Yes, the Ozarks is an area for continuing reports and that particular area
in Arkansas is well known for different types of evidence over the years.
