Witness Stared Down by TALL, CLAWED CRAWLER HUMANOID in Rural Lancashire, UK

A British witness was driving late at night in rural Lancashire, UK when he observed 'eyeshine' on the roadway ahead of him. Slowing down, he soon encounters a tall crawler humanoid.

The following account was forwarded to me:

"In 2015, I was driving back from an ex-partner's house at about 11 pm, in rural Lancashire in the north of England. It was late November from what I remember so it was a clear night, with a big bright moon and very cold out (for England at least). To get to my home, you have to cut off the motorway and take a slightly rural route up a wooded road! It's not a large or dense wood, you can probably walk from one end to the other in 15-20 minutes, it's roughly a 5-minute drive through the trees!

As I was driving along, the road twisted and turned as it always had the hundreds of other times I had used it, so I had to drive very slowly ( about 20 KPH) in case a car came around a bend too fast (there's always accidents there) and so I was raising and dipping my headlights and full beam as you do. As I turned a corner, about 30 feet in front of my car was a large, scrawny, grey figure. At first, I thought it was a large branch that had fallen from the tree, so I crept toward it and put on my full beam. When I got within about 10 feet of it, the creature (or whatever it was) moved as though it was doing a press-up, pushing itself up with its arms, and my headlights caught its eyes which glowed like a cat do when you shine a light at them at night!

I stopped the car, half expecting it to just be a deer, and ran out of the way, but the creature didn't move, it just stayed stationary, staring at me, giving me a good 10-15 seconds to look at it. It then slowly stood up on two legs, still looking at me in the car. It was BIG, the top of my car probably only reached the lower rib cage region, so I'd estimate it was probably 9-10 feet tall. It was pale grey, hairless and gaunt. I could see its rib cage and spine. It had LONG bony arms, probably each about 4 feet long, and large claw-like hands. (The closest comparative description I could give is the grey, bony werewolf in the third Harry Potter movie).

Once I had taken all this in and realised the situation, I began to panic, putting my car in reverse, but the creature than just turned and walked calmly, and silently, off into the woods next to the road. It did not run, it didn't seem scared or intimidated, it almost seemed disinterested. I didn't hang about to investigate the area, I went straight home and locked the door! I spoke to all my friends, and all but one of them thought I was joking, but she seemed to take it very, very seriously, having had a similar experience in a similar area a few years ago! She said it was a bad omen, and after doing some research I can understand why!

As I said, I don't really believe in anything, and I've never seen anything before, I travel that road at least once or twice a week and have never seen anything since! Does anyone have any idea what it could have been? We don't have large animals over here in the UK, the biggest we get in my area are Badgers and small and medium-sized deer! Certainly, not that size, and surely deer would startle in the headlights and run?" O

Winged humanoids have always been around us in some form or another. Most witnesses consider their encounters profound & life-changing. As well, many are fearful of the future, believing that these beings are a harbinger of terrible events.

In the state of Pennsylvania, especially over the past 30 years, there have been many reported sightings of these cryptids. I also had a close encounter with one of these creatures in the Fall of 1988 and have documented other witness sightings & encounters since. What I find interesting is that most of these sightings have mirrored the descriptions of those winged humanoids reported in the Chicagoland region during the past few decades.

So, sit back and listen to these personal reports. Then put yourself in the position of these witnesses and imagine how you would react to a similar situation. If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer each.
