Possible ORANG PENDAK with 'BACKWARD FEET' Encountered in Sumatra

An Indonesian man details his grandpa's encounter with a possible Orang Pendak in the forests of Sumatra. It was observed that this creature had 'backward' feet. Very odd!

I received the following account:

"Hello, Mr. Lon. Firstly, I want to thank you for your interesting YouTube videos and interviews. I watch you as much as I can.

I'm Indonesian, and I have a second-hand story to tell you. My grandpa was born in Sumatra, even though his dad is a Chinese immigrant, my grandpa pretty much lived there for his whole life. You see, the island of Sumatra has many thick and dense forests, and if I remember correctly there are many parts still left unexplored. My grandpa was quite adventurous when he was younger, he often went to the forest with his friends to hunt squirrels and other small wild animals. One day, my grandpa and his friends decided to go to another region in Sumatra and hunt in a more remote and unfamiliar forest, he said he got bored hunting in the same forest all the time.

So, accompanied by his usual hunting friends, they hired a local guide and entered the forest. After hunting for small game all day, they realized that they were lost, their local guide said he'd never seen that part of the forest they were in, which was weird because he made sure to stay in the area he was familiar with. My grandpa said, it felt like they were hypnotized by unseen forces, and before they knew it, they ended up in an unfamiliar part of the forest. They tried to remain calm and assess the situation, and that's when they noticed it, something was observing them from behind the bush. My grandpa said it looked like a hybrid between humans and chimps and it was kind of small, about as tall as an adult's waist. He couldn't explain it well because of how weird that thing was. But he remember one particular detail about the creature (or thing), its front feet were in reverse position, so when the creature walked, it looked like the creature was walking backward.

The creature noticed my grandpa's party was aware of its presence and walked away from the scene. Weirdly enough the creature wasn't running at all so out of curiosity the party decided to follow the creature. They arrived at an open area where a herd of the creature gathered. My grandpa said they were talking in some kind of unknown language, like a wildman language. The party decided it had enough curiosity and time to scram out of there because they were in an unknown situation and they could be in real danger. After walking for hours they miraculously reached the edge of the forest sometime after sunrise, and luckily enough the creatures didn't follow them at all.

It's up to you to believe me or not, but one thing I know for sure my grandpa wasn't a liar. He kept telling us this story even after he reached a very old age. This story got me into cryptozoology and of course, I did some research on Orang Pendak, and some testimonies from natives across Sumatra were similar to my grandpa's.

One thing that I want to mention is the creatures speak some kind of unknown language, that's why the very first time I heard the Sierra Sound recording. I got shivered all over my body, to think these creatures were intelligent. It is very exciting!" P
