Louisiana, Jefferson Parish
I was thirteen years old at the time, it was January of 1970, my older
brother had asked if I could help him with a construction project that
he was working on under the overhang at the back of his house. He
had just recently purchased the house and had not installed any backyard
lighting so we were using a mechanics trouble light, hung from a hook on
the edge of the roof. I don't remember which one of us saw it first,
but there were a large pair of eyes illuminated by the drop light.
I think the color was pink. They were shining back at us from the
woods, about five feet from the left property line and maybe fifteen feet
into the brambles. My brother picked up a baby food jar and threw
it at the eyes, and at that they disappeared. We figured it
had left so we continued working. Several minutes later we saw them
again, this time they were about 40 to 50 feet to the right. Let
it be noted that even though it was January and there were leaves on the
ground that no sounds were heard. In a moment of bravery I ran at
it while shouting and flailing my arms. I closed distance to within
about twenty feet of the backyard property line and noticed that the eyes
were looking right at me and not moving, my bravery ran out and common
sense kicked in. I reversed course and ran the other way to around
the house and inside, my brother right in front of me , I remember him
reaching outside just enough to unplug the light. All this time has passed,
and I am now 45 years old. My older brother phoned me to tell me
about a show on tv about creatures in Louisiana and how what we had experienced
may have been related. It should be said that the woods behind the
house was like a jungle with tangles of blackberry vines and thick growth,
the ground was at least three feet lower there, looking back we figure
that the eyes were at an elevation of four feet above the back yard, or
a total of at least seven feet. I obviously had not done the calculations
when I decided to run at this sighting, especially since there was NO FENCE!
My brother had one installed a couple weeks later. Nothing was seen or
