SHAPESHIFTING 'GARGOYLE-LIKE' CRYPTID Encounter on Fort Hall Reservation, Idaho


A Fort Hall Reservation resident encounters an upright coyote-like creature that walks out in front of his vehicle, then shapeshifts into a gargoyle-like cryptid that flies skyward.

“Okay, I don't know where to start. So I was driving down a back road on our rez in Idaho (Shoshone-Bannock Tribes - Fort Hall Reservation). It was about 1:30 AM. I was trying to get to town before 2:00 AM closing time, so you can say I was buzzed. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say I was a 5 or 4 - coming from another town that closes early (in a different county).

I picked up a buddy on the way (he was sober) to drive me. So we were driving down the road at about 50 MPH when all of a sudden we see something close to the road, on the left side shoulder. So we stopped.

Then the thing (grayish/whiteish thing) walked across the road in front of us. It looked at us and snarled. It had sharp teeth and looked like a werewolf, like, it was ugly as hell. We both looked at each other and were, like, GO!! Then it jumped into a tree on the right side. We hauled ass. Then something flew over us - an owl-like creature with wings. We didn't know if it transformed into a big owl or what. We didn't care. We just wanted to get away.

After I told a few people, they said maybe it was a gargoyle. Have you heard about gargoyles? Skinwalkers? Werewolves? Scary stuff whatever it was.” Name withheld

NOTE: I have heard of a similar sighting on the Diné Navajo (Naabeehó Diné Biyaad) reservation at a location near the Arizona/New Mexico border just west of Gallup, NM. The gentleman I talked to was driving his pickup when he saw an upright coyote-like creature standing in the road. He stated that it shapeshifted into a huge gray gargoyle-like humanoid and swiftly rose up into the sky. Bizarre. Lon

A young Evanston, Illinois man is at a local self-storage facility. While there, he hears banging sounds and eventually investigates. He encounters a white fleshy red-eyed insect-like humanoid. He is frozen in place and terrified by this unknown monstrosity!

A Chicago woman is at her father's apartment. She is on the balcony taking a break when she observes a 'Glimmer Man' in the tree below her. There is another witness as well. She believes that the entity still inhabits the area and that she occasionally experiences a feeling of dread when visiting her father.

A Lawrence County, Kentucky woman tells her son about a hairy humanoid creature that would come down from the mountain and into her backyard at night. She has seen it twice. She describes it as an 'alien ape man.' Also, two Oklahoma feral hog hunters are set up in a field and using thermal scopes. The eyewitness observes an 8-10 foot tall hairy biped with a dog-like snout literally grab a large hog and rip it in half!

I will describe these incidents and others in detail and answer all questions.
