15-FOOT-LONG, BLUE-EYED GARGOYLE Possibly Summoned in the Ozarks

An eyewitness recalls his encounter and his friends' subsequent encounter with a blue-eyed gargoyle-like creature or demon that they believe was summoned by them. Unusual account.

I received the following account:

"This story is only partly a first-hand account. Events that may have led up to this point come from my friend group at the time. They were trustworthy but I only saw this thing once. A lot of the really intense encounters with the paranormal for me were in these Ozarks woods beside where my friends lived. As for the previous events, basically, I had this one friend who had had many encounters and dealings with various beasties and I learned a lot from him. The other two friends believed but not as deeply. Poked hornets' nests often and just did all-around stupid stuff. Found this old book on satanic witchcraft (not that in of itself is stupid), drew sigils willy-nilly, pronouncing Latin wrong, started doing drugs experimentally (cocaine and heroin) but stopped, and cleaned up, but they still did stupid stuff. They wanted tangible proof of this sort of thing.

They found an abandoned shack in the woods, drew some summoning circle in red spray paint in a window, put some of their blood on it, and did a ritual of some sort. Nothing happens. A couple of weeks go by and they are walking through the woods and they get all panicky for no reason, like their flight or fight goes into overdrive and they get lost from the panic and see this thing in the treetops following them. They finally make it back home and tell my other friend (the intelligent one) what happened. He thought they were just freaking out and it was probably nothing.

Another week goes by during which they tell me and we all make plans to hang out. We were outside chit-chatting, smoking cigars, and enjoying the night. All of a sudden I happen to look across to the other apartment building and I see what looks like this massive hand gripping the roof and see this tail swaying but it’s giant. I asked them if they had seen it too and they did. We go around trying to debunk this.

The trees were down a hill and weren’t visible from the other side but then I saw these bright blue eyes look at us on a massive head. We go back towards where we were in case we need to bolt inside and we can see better in the light. We keep watching and this very muscular arm hoists up this thing on top of the roof and it lays across it like a 15-foot-long muscular cat. It was dark so it’s hard to say for certain of the color but it didn’t have fur and it looked dark grey. The head looked like it had horns but again it was dark. There was definitely something there but we weren’t sure what. It gets off the roof and hear it slide on the gravel down the hill and tear back off into the trees. Nothing else spectacular happens that night and so ends my personal account.

However, they told me later that the two buddies, who did the so-called ritual got so freaked out, they went back to the shack and destroyed the circle with a rock and didn’t close the summoning. They refused to go hiking there anymore after they told us that they saw this “15-foot tall, skinny gargoyle, no wings, and blue eyes with no pupils, chased after them when they tried to go in.” Something freaked them out because the “edgy Satanists” and militant atheists started attending evangelical Christian churches. The only thing I know for certain is what I saw, the rest could be completely made up. I researched Ozark's cryptids but couldn’t find anything that matched. My more experienced friend said he thinks they did summon a demon and severed its way back/hold they had on it so it attacked.

I really don’t know what it was." WB

Little People tales abound in the Old & New Worlds. Every culture has a hint of folklore that involves fairies, elves & gnomes. For the most part, these beings are the same with only the name change. They are described as somewhat friendly creatures common in Native American myth who are seen as protectors and tricksters. However, in some cases, there may be a dark side associated with the Little People, even to the point where they are said to be cannibalistic dwarves.

Anyway, over the years I have received a variety of personal reports involving these creatures. I'll let you decide if the Little People are benevolent beings, or if they have evil intent.

If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer each.
