Hamilton County, Tennessee
Wooded, Secluded Lake Cove
The first sighting by my family fishing, they heard foot steps coming down
the ridge to the water. The area was heavy in brush. While they were quite
in the boat and watching the bank. My sister saw a very large harry brown
something cross in the opening of the brush in front of a white oak tree.
Then there was a very loud sound of something lapping water from the lake.
When they started to pull anchor, everything in the sounding area fell
silent. My sister called me and told me of the encounter. July 3rd I joined
my sister and brother-in-law to the same cove. We pulled the boat up to
the shore to the shell beach, I notice a strange track in the broken shell,
and river sand. It had three toes, but I could not determine the size.
We pulled back off the shore and anchored up in the cove. Everything was
quite again when I got a smell of vinegar and wet dog, then a loud cluck
sound. About 5 mins after the smell, the water along the shore line where
we were 20 mins before errupted with large splashes and tree shaking just
out of eye sight.
of Witness: Fishing for bream,
of Creature: Large black harry creature.
Notes: The tree frogs
were loud then fell silent.
