Large BIPEDAL CRYPTID CANINE Chases Washington County, PA Resident


A Washington County, Pennsylvania resident is shocked to see a large upright cryptid canine standing in his backyard. After it leaves, the eyewitness is curious. That's when the encounter gets scary.

I received the following account:

"Located in southwest Pennsylvania, my story unfolds in Washington County. I live near Washington, PA. There has been a variety of mysterious creatures and other strange animal encounters reported in this area for a long time. New home construction seem to be causing these creatures to seek refuge in the surrounding woods. One creature seen in the area is a large wolf-like animal. While little is known about this elusive creature reports suggest that it possesses traits similar to both wolves and other large animals such as bears and mountain lions. But some people also claim that it has human-like qualities and features which is what I feel is the most disturbing part of its existence.

I've lived my whole life in this area. When I had my encounter, everything changed. I work as a freelance writer and researcher. It was early morning on January 1, 2012. I had just gotten out of bed after staying out longer than I had wanted at a New Year's Eve party. I was mad at myself for sleeping in and getting ready for my day when I heard this loud noise coming from outside. When I looked out the window I was shocked to see a large wolf-like creature standing in the middle of my backyard. The creature didn't match anything I'd seen before. However, it looked like the creature I had heard stories about all my life. It was easily twice the size of a normal wolf but had human-like features, such as its eyes and feet. The mouth was slighting gaped showing it sharp teeth. The menacing beast was just standing there staring back at me as I watched it through the window.

I didn't know how it knew I was there and I couldn't figure out what to do about it being in my yard. I stared back at it trying to figure out what this creature was. The truth is that I was a bit excited to see it. I mean this was the culmination of all of my childhood fantasies and dreams about strange creatures. It was almost a surreal moment for me. But after standing there for quite some time the creature finally turned and ran off into the woods.

Without a second thought I grabbed my coat and rushed outside to try and follow it. But by the time I got there it had disappeared into the trees. I stood in the same spot it had stood in but could not see anything out of the ordinary. I looked around but there were no footprints. So, it seemed necessary to walk over to where it entered the woods.

As I approached the edge of the woods I was shocked by a sudden loud howling. I was now scared and felt like I had pushed too far. I started to slowly work my way toward my home, hoping that the creature would just leave me alone. But as soon as I left the woods it let out a loud growl and then lunged out of the thick cover. I turned 180 degrees from the creature and ran for my life. I reached my house and closed the back door behind me. But the creature was right there, as it smashed into the door shattering the glass and sending splinters of wood flying through the air. But it didn't get through the door. It stood steady and stayed in place. I was now in the kitchen and grabbed a knife in case it found its way into the house. But by the time I turned to look, the creature was gone. It was as if it had vanished into thin air.

I was left standing and wondering what to do next. I called the police and reported the encounter. Over the next few hours there was a search for the creature but it was never found. At least that's what the authorities said to me. They told me there was nothing to worry about. The next day a crew of some sort showed up with cameras and what looked like detectors. However, I have no idea who they were or what they were doing.

For me, the creature will always remain a mystery, a sign of something more out there in the world. It's as if I got a glimpse of what could be lurking in the shadows waiting for their next chance to strike. That reminder is enough to keep me on my toes for the rest of my life. Terrifying as it was I'm actually grateful for that encounter because it validated a lot of my life's interests." JK

NOTE: Greene & Washington counties in southwest Pennsylvania are well-known for cryptid sightings and encounters. I have documented several eyewitness reports over the past few decades. Lon

MASSIVE UPRIGHT CANINE Attacks Eyewitness in Erie, Pennsylvania Park


A man in Erie, Pennsylvania reports a physical encounter that he experienced with an upright canine in July 2020. The terrifying incident took place in Asbury Woods in the city. 

Today, I received an encounter report from Erie, Pennsylvania:

"In the summer of 2020, specifically in early July, I found myself along Lake Erie, in Erie, Pennsylvania. It's fairly densely populated, and it's not rural. I briefly lived with a friend after my divorce in the Westminster neighborhood. There is a large park called Asbury Woods. Some of the trees are so old and tall that they can give you a different perspective on life if you let them. There are several paths you can follow. Although it can be crowded on some days, most of the time when I was there I was the only human. The place almost takes you back in time, if you can understand that.

I've read about people seeing strange animals and flying objects who report feeling odd at the time of their sightings and experiences. Some call it the Oz Effect because people suddenly feel like they aren't in Kansas anymore. Figuratively speaking, nothing like that happened to me, though I'm not saying I reacted calmly. My heart raced when I saw what I described as a Dogman or dog-headed man. I felt panic for some time. I put some distance between myself and the beast. However, it was comparable to what I might have felt if the same situation were reenacted.

I'm here to tell you what I remember about that incident. However, I feel it's imperative to note that I have been trying for literally years to explain this sighting away. I am extremely unhappy to have been unable to disprove my own observation. I'd like to debunk it.

So, I used to stroll through Asbury Woods a lot in those days, always alone because I was still emotionally recovering from my divorce. I walked on the same path I had taken three or four times before. But something about this time was different. I could hear someone or something walking with me in the bushes. It was a sound I had not heard before. Then suddenly, out of the bushes appeared a man over seven feet tall. He turned and our eyes met. The strange glowing eyes stood out to me. The two glowing orbs were in the middle of a giant dog head staring back at me. Those menacing eyes were above two rows of giant yellowish fangs. They looked like they belonged in dinosaur skeleton mouth at the natural history museum. This was not a man. Within seconds the creature was on top of me and I was on my back looking up at the beast. It leaned down with its canine snout sniffing at me from head to foot. I tried not to move. I'd never been that scared before, as that thing only needed one bite to end my life. I braced myself for the most pain I'd ever felt when someone or something whistled at a barely noticeable volume. I might not have noticed it if the dog-headed beast had not straightened up the second the sound hit the air. Nothing seemed to matter to that Dogman as much as that soft whistle we had both heard. It located the sound direction in a second or two and then I was abandoned as it burst off into the woods. That was the extent of my encounter.

I have tried to tell friends and family about my horrifying account, but they refuse to believe me. I contacted local animal control, as well as the Pennsylvania Game Commission. I never received a response to my inquiry.

I recently found your Pennsylvania Dogman / Upright Canine map and was intrigued by the number of sightings. But, I'm not really sure there is an unknown dog-like beast roaming the state, or anywhere else.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience." M

NOTE: I talked to the witness as soon as I received his email. He also forwarded a photo of the location of his encounter. The other details that he offered were that the fur/hair was grayish-brown and that it covered the entire body. The legs, arms, & body were like a muscular human man's and that it had clawed fingers and toes.

I plan to personally investigate the area and attempt to gather more information about this encounter or subsequent incidents. Even though a few other witnesses have felt threatened in previous reports, this is the first physical encounter with a Dogman or upright canine that has ever been reported to us. Lon
