Possible FERAL HUMAN Encountered in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains

A Virginia woman is hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains when she observes a cave opening on a mountainside. She climbs up the face to explore the opening. She soon regrets that decision!

I received the following account:

"I traveled about an hour from my home in Lynchburg, Virginia to do some exploring in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I'm not big on hiking or whatever but I had recently gone through a breakup with my boyfriend. I just needed some fresh air and some time alone. I parked and just started wandering. I didn't follow a specific path. I was mesmerized by the gigantic trees, the fauna, and the wildlife. I was really enjoying myself.

I'd been hiking for about two hours when I saw this large hole on a nearby mountainside. It wasn't too far seemed like it was a manageable climb. so I climbed up and when I got to the grotto I stuck my head in and it was dark. I turned on my phone's flashlight and that's when I realized this was a deep cave. I got a little carried away thinking about how I had discovered a cave wondering if anybody else had ever been up here. It was sort of exciting. I ducked down and I walked in.

I went in a few feet I was very careful but I could see a smooth rock floor beneath me. I felt safe. So I continued walking forward following the light from my flashlight. I was maybe 15 or 20 feet in when I realized I was in a cavern. There were a few openings in the walls surrounding the cavern. I picked the closest one to me and I looked in. It was another tunnel. It was big enough to walk through, so I stepped through the opening and I carefully walked a few more feet. That's when I heard scampering. I stopped walking thinking maybe I had kicked something. I looked all around but saw nothing.

I then heard the scampering again and when I raised my phone up to look ahead of me I saw a person! Only like not a regular person, but a humanoid. It was fully nude and it looked very malnourished. It was crouched down on its hands and feet about four feet in front of me. It was so pale, like maybe it had never ever even seen the Sun. Its face was sunken in and I could clearly see the cheekbones. It had totally black eyes, not just the pupils but all black! Between its hands was a half-eaten rabbit

I heard the chattering sound and I realized that this humanoid was making the noise. I don't know how I knew but it was calling out to others. I moved back toward the entrance but I kept my flashlight on it. It seemed fearful of the light and didn't try to move towards me.

I was able to get back through the entrance and I took a look around. I didn't see anything else. I then ran for my life back the way I came and I could hear the chattering and it was getting closer and louder. There had to be more than just one. I felt like I was being hunted. I was able to see the light from the original opening. I tripped I quickly got up and rushed out of that hole. I ran and slid down the mountain. I only stopped when I was sure nothing had followed me. Then I realized I had no phone. I must have lost it when I tripped. I had no idea where I was but I was just happy to be alive.

I did eventually find a trail and I managed to make it back to my car. I found the local police station, but it was pointless because they wouldn't take me seriously. So I just drove home. I cried so much on that drive and when I got home I checked my phone's location with the satellite feature. All I could see was a heavily wooded area.

The last time I checked the location of my phone it had moved several miles away from its original location. I'm sure the battery has long since run out.

I have done a bit of research online and found references to crawler humanoids. But I'm just wondering if this was a feral human of some kind? Regardless, I'm not going back to that area." M

NOTE: This may seem like a far-fetched story to some readers, but I have heard and read similar accounts. After corresponding with the witness, I'm not really sure what she encountered. The location, from what she could determine, was in Montgomery County, south of Lafayette, VA.

I don't necessarily believe that it was a crawler humanoid since its reactions and demeanor were different than most of the accounts that I have been told previously. Was it a feral human? Possibly, I suppose. Lon

Featured in this edition:

What are the Reptilians? These ‘lizard beings’ are called ‘Saurians,’ ‘Draconians,’ or ‘Reptoids.’ Some researchers describe them as ancient shapeshifting humanoids who have inhabited Earth before the time of man. Some conspiracy enthusiasts believe these entities come from a royal extraterrestrial lineage that currently dominates world governments and financial markets. There are also claims that they are related to the Anunnaki, who were supposedly a winged Draconian race, who had descended into Mesopotamia during human pre-history with the knowledge of the planets in the solar system, the precession of the equinoxes, and an understanding of complex medical procedures. It has also been said that the Anunnaki gave the Sumerians a ‘stargate’ before leaving Earth.

I’m not going to make any argument as to the identity of these entities or if they existed in antiquity. But I will acknowledge that their presence is mentioned in many experiencer encounters and abduction accounts and that numerous theories are quite prolific. As a result, there have been thousands of articles and books written about the subject.

So, do I find any facts in these encounter reports? Well, I’ve heard and read a lot of unexplained phenomena over the years. I find it prudent to not make assumptions based on personal bias because you may eventually be proven wrong. What do you believe?
