The Story

June 12, 2016

As Jack (name changed after request of anonymity) was getting prepared to go to bed one evening, he heard a mysterious crash outside. He headed outside to investigate. To his surprise, he saw a large monkey-like man that stood tall and upright. The creature promptly disappeared and was never seen again. Immediately after the encounter he returned and took a photograph of the creatures wet tracks it left on his deck (right).

The Creature

Jack estimated that it stood at 1.8m (5'11") and was covered in dark brown-black coloured hair or fur. It had a wide body with long arms and thick legs. The darkness obscured it below the knees so it's feet could not be made out. The creature had broad shoulders and a cone-shaped head. It had a flat ape-like nose and dark, reflective eyes.


One supposed explanation is a Moehau, as they have been reported nearby, though they do not match the sighting completely.
