Silver & White UPRIGHT CANINE Enters Into Avery County, NC Campsite

A group of friends are hiking and camping in the mountains of Avery County, North Carolina. On their third night in the wilderness, they have an encounter that none of them ever imagined.

The following account was relayed to me by a friend of my relative who lives in Avery County, North Carolina: 

On April 9, 2003, the witness said that whatever this creature was it was pure evil. This began when a group of friends decided to go camping and hiking. On the 3rd day of their hike, the witness said they had just started a fire and were cooking dinner when they started to hear something howling off in the distance. He and the rest of the party knew that it wasn't coyotes since these howls were deep and powerful, maybe wolves the witness said.

Everyone turned in for the night around 10:30 PM knowing that it was going to be a hard hike the next day. When they were all asleep the witness said that they all were woken by a very loud howl and movement in their camp. All seven of the party came out of the tent at about the same time. Two other members had brought handguns with them just in case they did run into a large animal like a bear or, as it seems, a large canine. They couldn't see anything at first but they could hear something very large moving just out of their sight. The witness says that even though they hadn't seen the creature he and the other members of the party could feel an evil presence. You could feel it in the air and it was really freaking everyone out. It was a heaviness like you get when you walk in on people that are fighting but it stops because they don't want anyone to know. A feeling of hate he thought.

Everyone else was talking and concerned about the strange feeling. They would hear large stick breaks, but still no sign of the creature. Then came another loud howl which made them jump out of their own skins. At that point, they all were starting to get scared with his two friends having their pistols drawn and ready to fire when one of the group members screamed out saying that she had just seen something huge and it was only on two legs. She was visibly shaking as she was telling what she had just seen. The flashlights were really starting to go to work shining all through the trees. Then from behind them came another loud howl which made the witness' chest vibrate he said. Then they could hear it moving once more as if it was hunting them.

One of his friends said that this is not good. Everyone needs to get close to the fire and it needs to be built up fast. So they started placing more firewood, eventually giving off a good glow throughout their camp. Now this is when they all say that they saw this creature. The witnesses said it was standing at least seven and a half feet tall with it having a wolf's head. It was silver with white markings while standing on just its hind legs. It was only 20 to 25 feet away from them just staring with greenish-yellow glowing eyes, which made their blood run cold. It t stood there for a good 15 to 20 seconds just staring with its arms down by its side. it did look like it had hands but was tipped with long claws that looked to be at least two and a half inches. The torso was human-like through its shoulders and chest area, but its belly looked to be sunken. The legs could be seen only above the knees with bushes covering its lower legs.

The witness said that this creature is out there, but he doesn't know if it's a werewolf or what. As this creature was standing there the witness' friends had their pistols out, starting to fire at the feet of this creature, causing it to growl and show its long canine teeth. Then the creature bolted off to the left while making a howling noise once again. The sounds of the limbs and twigs breaking were fading as the creature moved off. They didn't hear the creature for the rest of the night. Regardless, after their encounter, none of the parties were going back to sleep." E

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.
