Bizarre Bigfoot & Dogman Manifestations / Disappearances in Southern Indiana

A woman in southern Indiana describes several incidents involving Bigfoot & Dogman cryptids that suddenly appear and disappear. The events were observed by several witnesses.

The following account were transcribed from a January 2021 podcast:

August 2014 and June 2020 (two major events) - Indiana - “Candace, a nurse, residing in Indiana (location not specified, though somewhere near the Ohio River), claims a number of bizarre experiences.

Between 2012 and 2013, she lived in an apartment complex next to a large field and a forest. She noted a terrible smell (a mix of skunk and dog). Around August 2014, the witness moved further down the road but lived within sighting distance of the woods.

While sitting in the backyard, she observed a pair of trees swaying in the field though no other trees were moving. She then watched as dark grey clouds moved in. Two young boys walked down a road and wandered into some nearby forest. After about 25 to 30 minutes, she observed a creature that she likened to a Bigfoot step out from behind the tree and vanish.

A few days later, Candace, her grandson and a group of kids, all between the ages 10 and 13, from the nearby apartment, had gone into the woods to look for arrowheads down by the creek. While standing in the woods, Candace observed tall grass parting and watched as a black creature slithered on the ground. To her, it looked like a creature laying flat, walking on its fingertips like a spider. It slowly approached her and the children. She noticed a second creature peeking from around a tree, though she could not describe what this was. Suddenly, the one crawling, jumped to its feet. It stood on two legs. It was a massive creature standing between 7 and a half and 8 feet tall. The kids all screamed in horror. She described it as looking like a German Shepherd, with brownish/reddish short hair, muscles, tapered waist with human looking hands adorned with claw-like fingers. It stared at them and then turned and ran (as did Candace and the children).

Over the years Candace, her grandson and her neighbors all experienced glimpses of these weird creatures. Candace's strangest sighting occurred in the summer of 2020 (June) when she was sitting on her back porch, drinking a coffee at 8:00 AM one morning. She felt as though she was being watched and got up and looked around but saw nothing. She sat back down and looked towards the forest. Suddenly a beam of light erupted out of the ground. A black figure stepped out from the light. She could not see a face, only a black outline of a hairy bipedal creature that she said looked like how a silhouette of a Bigfoot would look. The creature stood there momentarily. It turned and looked in her direction. It then turned around and stepped back into the light beam and was sucked downwards back into the ground. The light immediately turned off.

Candace claims to have photographed some of these oddities and uploaded them to a Facebook Group. Almost immediately after, the photos were deleted from the group and somebody accessed her cellphone and removed all the images. She lost everything. This was followed by friend requests from people she didn't know.”
