'Crawler' Humanoid Chases Sisters in Gulf Shores, Alabama Nature Park

2 sisters are chased by a tall skinny humanoid, that drops to all fours, while skateboarding at night in a nature park in Gulf Shores, Alabama

I recently came across the following account:

"About five years ago my older sister and I went to a nature park, a wetlands so to speak, in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Of course we went at night so we could skate board around cause you aren't allowed too. But you know, a 14 year old trying to look cool in front of her 24 year old sister. Well we went just around as the sun was setting.

For a little bit we got lost since the park was so huge and condensed with a thick woods. We were trying to find the bridge, a 20ft or so bridge so we can hang out just above the rushing river. By the time we got there the sun was hardly visible over the mountains. I looked around after drinking my water and here is where the creepy stuff happened.

As I looked at the other side of the bridge I saw a tall skinny human-like figure. I first shrugged it off like it was a person, maybe a ranger of the park. But then it got on all fours and walked away. I didn't say anything at first, mainly because I thought it was maybe a bear. I looked back at my sister as we chatted about boys and along many other things. Then I looked back at the end of the bridge.

My sister did too and we both saw the figure this time. At this point I was totally freaked out, mind you it's still not dark out the sky was purple and orange so it wasn't like we were seeing things like when your mind pictures figures in the dark. No. It was right there and getting closer.

I told my sister to get the hell out of there. Her going first off the bride and down the hill. I went second. And as I turned to look at the bridge again it was 5 ft in front of me on all fours once again. It stood there as me and my sister skated off and this isn't even the end.

I told my sister to head to the main building since there is cameras and lots of light. We skateboarded for what seemed like hours, every minute seemed to last eternity. As we finally get to the main building we finally stopped riding our boards. Out of breath and scared we both looked around. By this time, it was pitch black outside. We made a mad dash to the car taking a path we have never seen before but it was outside the park which made us feel safer.

After we got to my sister's Jeep we both got in, hearts racing and scared out of our minds. And when we tried to leave the gate was locked. Meaning we couldn't leave since there was only one way in and out of the park. We got even more scared. We tried everything to get out. We even thought about just leaving the car behind and walking the 2 hours home. But we drove onto the sidewalk and got out of the park.

To this day I won't go back to those wetlands ever again. Even in daylight. Whatever that thing was I never want to see it again. I can't stop thinking about it. And I'm almost 19. You can think this is just a story but it really did happen. Me and my sister don't even talk about it to this day. Something changed between us, I could feel it after that day." DL
