Looking Back: Yellow Eyes in Dead Woman's Hollow

I received the following account in November 2015. Was it Bigfoot? Possibly another bi-pedal or upright canine canine sighting in Pennsylvania? Michaux State Forest has a lot of unexplained activity.

Hello Lon, 
"Just came across your site and listened to the Arcane Radio episode about the need for people to submit info for your investigations. Let me start by saying I have no desire to experience any anomaly but for whatever reason, seem to draw them, much to my dismay. This is the 1st time I have spoken to anyone outside of family. Here is my encounter:

Place: Michaux State Forest PA / Cumberland County in Dead Woman’s Hollow
Time: Last weekend of August 2015

My husband and I began sitting around a fire pit at my sister’s cabin shortly before dusk. There was no one else present the entire time. As always, we were both armed. We also had a spotlight and were about 20 ft from the front door of the cabin. We both have been avid outdoor people all our lives with many, many hours hunting various wildlife, trapping, fishing, camping, canoeing and hiking.

My husband began playing around yelling weird sounds to get a reaction out of me because I was nervous for the first time out of all the times I had been there for some reason. To our surprise, something answered him from, I want to say, within 100 yards in the woods, with the same sounds he made. He stopped and we sat silently looking and listening for what it was. No more joking around.

The yells, probably 5 in total, came closer over the course of a few hours, until the last one heard was clearly within 40 yards of us. It was with that I decided to go inside. I had been shining the spotlight intermittently throughout the evening into the woods and thought I would do so one last time as we both walked towards the cabin.

That’s when I saw something for the first time...yellow eyes. It did not look away or blink, but remained staring back at me from the area the last yell came from. I tried to see its body but everything else was dark around it. When I said “I see eye shine!” to my husband, the eyes moved several feet sideways, staring at me the whole time, then disappeared completely. I have spotlighted deer and various animals and this was not the same. They were at least twice the size of a deer’s eyes and there was no indication it had turned it’s head or walked away, but instead gave the impression of stepping behind something.

Once inside the cabin, we retired for the night with the bed having been positioned directly under a window that was left open for ventilation. My husband slept undisturbed throughout the night. I, however, heard what sounded like wood chops 6 different times. I clearly heard a loud “crack” close by, also.

The next morning, I walked to the area of the last vocalization / eye shine down a path. I found the biggest tree in the area about 5 feet off the path. It was too big to put my arms around. I noticed a clear line from the tree to the path of disturbed leaves, as if something walked to the tree then returned the same way. None of the other leaves around were disturbed except the line continuing across the path in the opposite direction into thick cover. I also found a freshly broken tree limb, approx. 10" diameter and about 4' long, lying in the path, all of this within 10 square feet. It appeared to have come from a live tree nearby and had been broken off several feet above my head.

I had every intention on investigating the scene even more but frankly, lost my wit (which is not like me) and returned to the fire pit to tidy up. I knew all this was abnormal and didn't feel right. That’s when the most frightening thing happened.

My attention was brought back to the big tree by really loud sounds of something BIG moving FAST towards me from the cover where the line of disturbed leaves were. I saw the foliage moving closer as I ran inside the cabin. I am sure I couldn’t have been but a second or two away from seeing it burst out into plain view, which is exactly what I did not want!

So what I would like to know is...what mimics people's voice, has large eyes that shine yellow at night, hides behind big trees, makes wood chopping sounds, breaks big limbs off of live trees and charges at people in broad daylight?

Thank you for your time and consideration of this email. I hope you find it helpful information somehow." DA

NOTE: So where do I start? Well, this area has the Appalachian Trail traversing through it and there was a murder near there - Dead Woman's Hollow - Rebecca Wight. But it actually got its name from the fact that a woman, whose identity is no longer known, was bitten by a snake and died there. After she was found the natives referred to this area and the road as the Dead Woman’s Hollow. There was also a crime / horror movie (fiction) made about the location - Dead Woman's Hollow (2013)

Anyway, the witnesses most likely had a run-in with a Bigfoot, which have been reported throughout Michaux State Forest. But then again, I'm not going to discount the fact that bi-pedal canines have been seen in Cumberland County, and Michaux SF would be an excellent habitat for them. Yellow eyes are indicative of canine and / or feline. Lon

Did the 'Men In Black' Come Calling in Tuscany, Italy...Then Suddenly Vanish?

A young man from Tuscany, Italy saw 2 unusual men at his his door. He watched them from the window in his room. They were dressed 1960s dress attire. Then they suddenly disappeared.

The following account was recently forwarded to me:

“I'm from Tuscany in Italy. About 3 years ago two strange people rang my door and then vanished into thin air before my eyes. Possible meeting? I want to try to put as much detail as possible.

Since I am Italian, if I express myself in a somewhat strange way it is because I do not speak English perfectly. So, since I was little I have always been literally obsessed with everything related to UFOs, aliens, mysterious creatures, etc. It was summer and I was in my room. I was fooling around on the computer at about 1500 hours in the afternoon. At one point my doorbell rings. I live on the second floor of a large house and therefore people who want to enter must first ring the bell of the gate, so that I then give them the opportunity to enter by opening the aforementioned gate. One of the windows of my house overlooks the place where the doorbell resides and usually when I heard someone ringing I always went to check who was from the window to know in advance if I would open it or not. I don't like to open to strangers, so after hearing the sound, as usual I go to the window to observe who had played and that's when I see them.

I see two men, one old and one young, both dressed as 1960s gangsters. The old man was very tall, black suit with white under shirt and had gray hair and the typical hat of those times and carried a small suitcase. The other man was much younger, had straight black hair, small round glasses, white shirt and suspenders. The old man had an eerie smile on his face and they were looking in the direction of my door, as if they were waiting for me to open. For a few fractions of a second I watch them thinking, "WTF." And this is where a very disturbing thing happens.

As I was watching them, the old man jerks his head and literally looks at my window, catching my gaze. This made me so uncomfortable that I instinctively bent down under the window. I don't know why, he just looked at me. The fact is, he couldn't see me. I try to explain myself as best I can. The aforementioned window is oblique to the area where the bell is located, ok? Plus the roller shutter was down and I was half hidden by the window curtain, but I can assure you that he looked me full in the face. As if you know I'm there. I was down for a few seconds and taken by extreme curiosity I got up to check what they were doing. But they isappeared. 

So I literally run to the front door and go out. They're gone. I go down the stairs and go out the gate. My house is located on a private street that ends in a short dead end. It was literally impossible that they had disappeared at that speed! They could not have had the material time to get into a car, for example, and leave or walk away! Before leaving the avenue of my house, I would have seen them anyway because I got off right away. It's not like I waited for minutes. I literally went downstairs to look for them after a maximum of several seconds and from the window to the door of my house it took me maybe 4-5 seconds maximum, yet they were gone. 

In order not to sound crazy, I picked up the phone and immediately sent an audio to my friends' telegram group telling them what had happened. In order to be sure of what I had experienced. We still talk about that day and I still can't figure out what happened. I also immediately thought of Jehovah's Witnesses, because of the way they were dressed. The problem remains the fact of their disappearance. Okay, they could have entered one of the houses. But it is not that simple for these reasons.

The house below me is inhabited by two elderly people. Usually in the summer during the afternoon they sleep or if they are awake, before answering the doorbell, it takes a lot of time because they are very slow. Plus they scream a lot because they are a bit deaf and scream while they talk. In fact, I stayed in so when they have guests in the house I can hear almost everything. I remained silent to hear if someone had entered their house but nothing. The other neighbors have the house in front of mine. But to reach it you have to cross the road, so I would have seen them and if they had gone away by car there I would have seen because as I said it is a road that does not go anywhere.

The fact that they had disappeared filled me with such curiosity that without even realizing it I rushed out. Actually thinking about it, if I had found them outside I would not know what I would have told them. As soon as they disappeared I went out looking for them, I don't know where I found the strength.” EA
