News & Notes: 'Did We Summon A Skinwalker?'

A pair of friends in southern Nevada hear strange noises outside the window one night. The next morning, they discover canine and human tracks. Was it a skinwalker?

This recent encounter was forwarded to me:

"I live in rural Southern Nevada. A buddy of mine and I encountered what we believe to be a skinwalker one night recently. It was late. I live towards the edge of town fairly close to the open desert. I don't remember the time, I'd estimate between 12a-2a.

Buddy of mine comes over and decides to spend the night hanging out with me. We were in the living room sitting near the side of the house, right next to a couple closed and blinded windows. We'd been on the topic of the paranormal/cryptids when we began discussing Navajo/Southern Paiute skinwalker lore. We're about an hour in on that topic when we began hearing a faint but distinguishable pitter-patter directly outside the window, pacing back and forth the length of the side of the house. We semi-dismissed it until we began to hear hyena-like cackling. At that point we figured that we had attracted one to us by speaking of them (which is a staple of their lore). So we decided the best course would be to not acknowledge it and carry on with our conversation until it left.

The paw-like pacing and cackling continued for another 45 minutes or so and eventually stopped. Neither one of us were willing to open the blinds or go outside until the morning. When we woke up and went outside not only did we see dog prints lining the dirt directly outside of the windows, we saw a set of abnormally large human like footprints that ran from near the car port to the center of the yard before the tracks stopped dead. Each footprint was smaller and less imprinted.

To this day we are positive that we attracted/summoned a skinwalker. Even if that's not the correct cryptid, I know for a fact that there was something outside of the house that night." AS
