'WEREWOLF' SIGHTING REPORTS at Greene Valley Forest Preserve in Naperville, Illinois

According to a witness, there were a series of sightings of what people referred to as a 'werewolf' around the Naperville, Illinois area around 2006.

I received the following account:

"Hi. I was talking to one of my really good friends a while back in 2006, and we just somehow ended up talking about weird stuff we've seen in our lives. He brings up the story of how one of our friends, and her friends had a scary encounter.

They were walking through a neighborhood at night and just ended up at a park outside of the Greene Valley Forest Preserve in Naperville, Illinois, which is a very big forest. So they're walking towards the park when they see what they thought was a tall person on top of the swing set. So they stop and wonder who would be standing on a swingset at 10 pm at night alone. So they get closer, and the creature turns around. It was a hairy creature with bright orange eyes, standing upright at around 8 feet tall. It looked at them for about 5 seconds, then it jumped straight down without making a sound, sprinting away. They got scared and ran back to their car and went home.

As soon as one of them got home she was sitting in her house when banging started on her house. She then called up one of her friends (supposing it was him) telling him to stop, he told her it really wasn't him. He said he was home and the same thing was happening with him. They never saw the creature again. There have been a few more sightings by people who say they'll wake up early in the morning around 6 am and will see the creature watching them when they're outside. Everyone who describes it describes it as a "werewolf."

So here's my story. I and a couple of my friends went to the same forest preserve at night just to hang out and have a couple of beers. We've heard about the story a couple times but thought they were just pulling our chain. But we were there for like about an hour, and we finished our beers, and decided to leave. Well, my friend went to relieve himself near the edge of the woods, and we said we'd wait for him. So he finishes up, walks back to us, and we're just walking back to my car in normal conversation, and he's not talking. We just asked him, "Why are so quiet?' He just told us to hurry up and move fast to the car. I said, "What's going on?"

So we get to our car and he seems to be fine, and all is forgotten. I saw him every day after that and everything was normal. Then a while later were sitting in a restaurant eating, and I brought up the park and told him we should all go do that again. And then he flat-out told me when he was doing his business on the edge of the woods, he saw two glowing orange eyes looking at him from about 20 feet away and getting closer. He didn't see the creature, due to the fact it was almost pitch black, but he saw the eyes getting closer, and he got scared. He told me he didn't tell us that night, because he didn't want to scare us, and he thought we wouldn't believe him.

After these many years, I wonder how many other people saw this creature?" H
