2 METRE LONG 'HUMAN SLUG' Crawls Out of Ontario Bog

An Ontario university student was in the vicinity of a bog at night when he observed a giant slug/leech-looking creature crawling out of the muck. He quickly exits the area.

I received the following account:

"I lived in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada which has many of these little swamps/bogs in certain parts outside of town. Usually, not a lot goes on in these bogs as you can't really build in them and there's not a lot that lives in them except for maybe some frogs and muskrat. Anyway, one Friday night about 7 years ago I decided to take a break from my university studies and go for some drinks at the local bar with some of the boys. It was a really good night with lots of drinking to be had and around a bit after 3 in the morning I decided to start walking home as I only live about 15 min away. I was about halfway home when I noticed something unusual at one of these bogs.

From what I could see it seemed there was some kind of light coming from the water. At first, I simply told myself it was probably just my drunk mind playing tricks on me but alas curiosity, with the help of some liquid courage, got the best of me and I decided to approach the light. It is what I saw then that I still to this day can not make sense of.

What appeared to be a giant slug/leech-looking creature started to crawl out of the bog with what seemed like two very muscular front arms. As it crawled out further I got a better glimpse of its body, approximately 2 metres long. I did not seem to have any hind legs just its front arms but did seem to have a slimy underside as it moved quite fast and left behind a somewhat noticeable slime layer. The bio-luminescence was coming from a massive bulge located on his forehead and extended down his spinal column. I was completely stunned by what I was seeing and could not move as my body went completely numb.

At first, the creature clearly did not notice me as he was headed in a direction perpendicular to mine. I assume that because he did not initially see me the creature may not have great eyesight or any eyes at all. It must also had a poor sense of smell as it was not drawn to me. It was only when I let out a foolish and loud "WTF is this thing" did the abomination stopped dead in its tracks and turned its hideous head at me. It was at this point I could clearly see its 2 large black eyes open up from its eyelids and stare directly at me. As soon as it saw me its bio-luminescence went out and I was left blinded in the pitch black.

I heard a horrific screech almost like a bird scraw but much lower and sounding like it came from deep in the gut. I could hear the creature start to charge at me as I could hear its large body cut through that tall bog grass. My fight-or-flight instincts kicked in and you can be damn sure I chose flight. I picked out the nearest street lamp and ran as fast as I could through the grass till I got to it. When I got back to the street I was surprised to see no sign of the creature behind me.

I'm unsure if it wanted to harm me or just scare me out of its bog as I had seen it moving at an alarming rate as it initially left the bog water. Surely it could have caught a drunk, staggering 22-year-old man? I went home after that and vowed never to go back to the bog. After I finished my degree I moved to Toronto and haven't been back since, I still can't come to terms with what I saw that night and I'm not sure I want to. I'm posting now to get this off my chest and see if anyone has had a similar experience or if they can make sense of this." K

A Tennessee family, who lives near the Land Between the Lakes, experiences a variety of unsettling phenomena. As time goes on, the husband gives a detailed account of the activity, along with updates. I will also detail a very bizarre incident in which the witnesses experienced an abomination while at the Land Between the Lakes Recreational Area.

Over the years I have received many requests to post and talk about the strange and unexplained activity in the Land Between the Lakes area. I'll let you decide how dangerous this region is.

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