Unusual Canine-Like Cryptid Observed in Champaign, Illinois

A woman in Champaign, Illinois observed a strange canine-like creature in the lot near her front yard. Interesting account.

I following account was recently forwarded to me:

This happened about a month ago in Champaign, Illinois. I live in a neighborhood in town, a few blocks away from main city streets (around Mattis and University, if you're familiar with the area). I was in the front yard doing some work. The west side of the yard is lined with tall evergreens, but they are sparse enough to see through to the lot next to me and the house on the other side of the lot.

I paused from working and noticed some movement through the trees - an animal running/trotting from the back of the lot to the street. I decided to watch it, just in case it was the dog from the house on the other side of lot and needed to be returned to the owner.

When the animal entered the street, my immediate thought was that it was a baby deer - it ran like a deer and was about that size. But then I realized it wasn't a deer - its body looked more like a dog (like a greyhound or whippet). It really looked like a cross between a deer and dog but looked like neither. It just didn't look...right.

It was a solid tan-color (no spots/markings), and had a long slender tail, muzzle/snout, and body. I believe it also had long ears that it held back against its head. It made absolutely no sound as it ran and only looked straight ahead as it crossed the street into the overgrown backyard of an abandoned house.

I only saw it for a few seconds, but I got a good look at it. I know it could have been a dog, but it just didn't move like a dog. My husband thinks it may be some sort of cryptid. We’re tempted to explore the abandoned house to see what we can find out. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Below is an image I found is similar what I saw. The differences are that what I saw had long ears and that the legs of the animal I saw were like a deer's and not like a dogs. It also was not crouched over at all, it stood very upright." TO

Unexplained Phenomena with Investigators Jack Cary and Albert Rosales | Arcane Radio 11.06.2020

Join me as I welcome paranormal / anomalous investigators Albert S. Rosales and Jack Cary to Arcane Radio.

Albert was born in Cuba and migrated to the US in 1966. He witnessed several unusual incidents as a young man while living in Cuba, which continued throughout his life in the US. Albert became interested in unusual phenomena and UFOs at a young age, but soon directed his focus to the crux of the phenomena; the humanoids and otherworldly entities. He began collecting data on encounters from worldwide sources in the late 80's. His current database has over 20,000 entries, which is updated and corrected daily. Albert has published 16 titles, including 'UFOs Over Florida: Humanoid and other Strange Encounters in the Sunshine State.' 

Jack Cary is the founder and current director at the Paranormal Intelligence Agency and a protege of the late JC Johnson at Crypto Four Corners, where he continues as a researcher. Jack is also a member of Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research. After many years of investigating crypto-creatures and paranormal phenomena in North America he has accumulated mounds of evidence that may prove the existence of strange creatures. His research lends credence to the notion that inter-dimensional doorways intermittently open, permitting the unintentional transference of a person, or being, across parallel realities and time. Jack's recent book is titled 'Paranormal Planet.'

This will be a very informative and entertaining show! Join us this Friday, November 6th at 9PM ET / 6PM PT -  Watch LIVE w/ chat on the Beyond Explanation YouTube channel, or listen live at the Paranormal King Radio Network or at LiveRadio/Paranormal King Radio Network
