LIMA, Ohio — An Ohio resident on Sunday said he saw a humanoid-looking creature in Allen County.
The man, who provided a full name but asked to remain anonymous, says he was at home talking to his sister when he noticed the creature through the open door.
“We have a big bean field that leads to small woods,” the eyewitness, who claims to work in the food service, told Cryptozoology News. “The neighbor has a pond, I saw movement right past my sister’s head, whose back was against our sliding door leading to our backyard. It went full sprint towards the bean field, scared the hell out of me.”
The man described it as a 6-feet-tall creature covered in “what looked like grey or pink” skin with long ears “like a doberman”. Its body, he said, was “muscular as hell in a full stride”.
“I only saw the back of it, but it had humans legs and ass. I could see the striations in its back, the thing was definitely muscular.”
The Ohio resident claims the unknown animal was under the light for “a good 30 seconds” before going out of sight.
“My sister thought I was screwing with her, but I was noticeably shaken because the damn thing wasn’t normal,” he said.
The Dogman is a cryptid reputed to live in the northwestern quadrant of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, although other sightings have been reported in other states. This unproven creature was first allegedly spotted in 1887 by two lumberjacks, who described the creature as having a human body and a dog’s head.
A month ago, two people in Mississippi claimed they saw an unidentified dog-like creature in Oregon County.
In 2013, a woman released footage of a creature she believed to be the Dogman.
