“My encounter was in Sept of 2018. I live on the edge of the Sam Houston National Forest. A 5-10 min walk from lake Conroe down FM 1097. Strange things had been happening for about a month with things coming to my house, weird noises in the woods behind my house. My wife and I had a dog that was taken by something which I saw something grab my dog and yank it into the tree line. Unfortunately I couldn’t see what grabbed her. But when my wife and I went to find her in the place where she disappeared, there were no signs of a struggle, no blood, no fur, nothing. Like whatever took my dog just vanished.
To shorten my story it was about 4 am one morning I was sitting on my porch smoking a cigarette enjoying the peace and quiet. But at this time it was to quiet, absolutely no noises. And in this Forest even for 4 am there are always noises. I shined my spotlight around from the backside of my property and followed the tree line. I came to the biggest tree directly across from my front porch and next to the tree was the biggest wolf head I have ever seen looking at me from behind the tree. This head had to be about 4 to 4/12 feet off the ground. This thing had the brightest green eyes I have ever seen. Captivating actually. I just stared, slightly shaking with the light in hand. After a few seconds this thing grabbed the tree with its hand, not paw, but hand and stood up next to the tree. I was floored!! What in the hell am I looking at?
I was in shock and completely scared. This creature was grey and was standing there just looking at me. I couldn’t move. I was shaking terribly. This thing then took 2 steps towards me and that snapped me out of my trance and I reached behind me trying t find my doorknob. I ran inside and woke up my wife and begged her to come outside and see this. Surprisingly instead of yelling at me for waking her she said she could tell something was wrong with me by the sound of my voice. She came to the front door and I just knew this thing would be gone but it wasn’t. There it stood and the look on my wife’s face said it all. She was seeing what I was seeing.
The creature then dropped to all fours and walked down the tree line back into the forest. I’ve never been the same since. It left me scarred where I’m afraid of the woods at night and very jumpy to noises and things. It looked like a giant grey werewolf which I now know is probably what is referred to as a dogman. People need to know that these things are out there. I’m not saying people should go out there and obliterate them all if they could even find them but people should be aware that they exist and they’re out there. But believe me, I’ve tried telling others and they just laugh and make jokes and think I’m nuts which makes the people who have encounters shut down and not share their experience. Anyways that’s it in a short nutshell. If you read all this thank you for taking the time. Take care and be safe out there.”-Ryan P.
