Pranking Teens Chased by 'GLIMMER MAN' Through the Neighborhood

A group of teens are out roaming the neighborhood, ding-donging homes. Then, after visiting a certain home they discover a translucent humanoid-shaped entity is chasing them.

The following account was forwarded to me:

"I was in my late teens and living in Lake Orion, Michigan, visiting my mom's friends and their kids for the Fourth of July weekend. Me and my friend and their kids were roaming around the city area late at night. We ended up walking down some residential roads, it was really quiet, probably around 2 AM, with no cars driving around.

We had ding-dong-ditched probably 5 houses at that point, and the kids started pressuring me to do it. It was my turn, and they were teasing me. So, they directed me to ring the doorbell of the house we were standing in front of. It was a smaller white house, square-shaped, with some metal fencing around the back for the owner's dogs. I walked up and there was no doorbell, so I walked back. They told me to "just knock then!" So, as someone who didn't want to kill the fun, I went back and knocked to find they had already taken off running.

I ran after them, and I don't know if I believed what they were saying, but even my friend said they saw it. Apparently, there was a face in the window the first time I went up, and the house is notoriously haunted. I was a little spooked, and out of breath, we must have run half a mile.

I looked behind me to see if there was anything scary following us and I saw this figure that I have always described as looking made out of water. A humanoid figure is translucent, which makes the background behind it wavy and has a defined outline. I figured my mind was playing tricks on me and just kept walking joking around with the others, looking back every so often. It was following us, and I could see it under the streetlamps every so often. The leader kid, who wanted to ding-dong-ditch houses, looked to see what I was looking at and exclaimed to his friend, "Do you see that?" and took off running. My friend looked back and took off running, and I was again left running after them. We ran all the way back to his house, probably three miles. No sign of it behind us anymore, but I have never been so shaken or scared in my entire life. I was inconsolable.

I was scared for a while I would see it again and find out it had been following me the entire time. It's been over 10 years now, and I've never seen anything like that again." S

According to First Nations legend, the Thunderbird is said to have a wingspan the length of two canoes with the ability to deafen people with the sound of its flapping wings.

In March 2010, the late Jc Johnson of Crypto Four Corners contacted me about an incident where twenty-four sheep were mutilated at a farm near Hogback, New Mexico, on the Dine' Navajo Reservation. The livestock owner explained that there were large talon marks but very little blood and no evisceration. The prints on the ground were only seen in the corral, not anywhere else on the farm. Was this an attack by a large flying predator? Why were the carcasses left intact?

Jc mentioned that a large cryptid bird or pterosaur may have been responsible for this act. That theory is not as far-fetched as it may initially sound. For many generations, people in New Mexico and parts of Texas say they've seen birds so big they seem prehistoric. There is convincing anecdotal evidence that many of these legendary winged creatures are connected to modern sightings.

I believe that many of these winged cryptids are corporeal beings that can manifest on our plane of existence. Their point of origin and means of conveyance is speculative. But this is the reason why we research and investigate this phenomenon. The search continues.

So, listen to the reports, and form your conclusions about what these monstrous birds are. If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer everyone.
