I do in a manner of speaking.
My youngest daughter came face to face with this thing while she was driving her vehicle about 2 o’clock in the morning in a fairly well lit intersection. She was the only vehicle on the road almost coming to a stop at a red light. She came straight to my house after seeing it and told me about it.
The way she described it to me the creature was eating something that looked like roadkill. She described the appearance of the creature as being almost completely white without any melatonin or hair of any kind showing on its surface. Its eyes were large and reflective in the headlights of her car. In an almost ape like fashion Its rear legs were much shorter than its front legs and hinged in the opposite direction much like a dog. she did not observe a tail, it’s sexuality or even offensive abilities of any kind other than small teeth in a very large mouth that seem to be screaming at her in fear.
While she wasn’t traveling that fast ( in anticipation of stopping at the light), she was moving too fast to avoid hitting the creature. She stated that she jumped on the brakes and the creature panicked, leaping over the car in one bound and reaching the soft shoulder with no problem then disappearing into a nearby field behind Walgreens. I recall she was almost as amazed at not hitting it as seeing in the first place.
Now what’s interesting about this is that she told me about this creature 5 years ago before it became big news. One day not too long ago she showed me a video she found online and told me that the video could very well be a fake, but if it is they did a damn good job because it was exactly what she saw that night driving home after work. When she told me about it she didn’t have a name for the thing, but now they call it a “Rake”.
I asked her at the time if she had an impression as to what the creature may or may not have been thinking based on its reactions and she did have an opinion. She said it seem to be more afraid of her and being seen by her then she was of it. I asked her if she was afraid to be alone in the dark with it, and she replied only if it was cornered. I asked at the time if she had an impression as to what the creature may or may not have been thinking based on its reactions and she did have an a general impression… She said it seems to be more fearful of her and being seen by her - than she was of it.
I asked why wouldn’t she be afraid to be alone in the dark with it, and she replied “…only if it was unable to escape, I don’t know why- but I dont think it has any interest in eating people or anything like that. I guess it looked kind of desperate and scared.” When I asked her why she thought it was desperate she said "why else would it come that far when into town to eat roadkill when it was terrified of being seen? It doesn’t have any claws it doesn’t have any fangs and the only thing it seems to be able to do is hide in the dark, eat whatever meat it can find and run away. "
The second thing of interest is that she does have recurring nightmares and has since she was a child. In many ways she is terrified to sleep at night even as an adult.
On a final note it’s worth mentioning that I grew up in the area that she spotted this creature. I played out in the fields where that Walgreens was erected and the property was developed. As a child I spent plenty of time playing around in an extensive tunnel system there that exists for the septic and water waste disposal system. Those tunnels are augmented by the railroad and its tunnels through the mountain. If that thing is in the area it has plenty of places to hide more or less right under the feet of the people that live there.
Oh and one more thing, that night I made her take me to this place and show me where she saw the creature. I guess it was about 4 a.m. when we drove down by Walgreens and the roadkill was right when she said it would be.
I hope this helps.
