Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA, 2014

Sighted on Friday 24. October 2014

Walking the dog around the neighborhood and came around a curve in the sidewalk/street. I noticed something unusual and stopped walking, staring at it, trying to figure out exactly what I was seeing. The dog seemed more annoyed Iíd made him stop, he did not bark or react in any way.

There was a figure ahead of me, about 10 feet away, standing in the swale area, between the sidewalk & street. It was not facing me. It was skeletal thin or bony, taller than my 5í3Ē, white or light grayish skin, no hair, there was something blue near its left ear?

At first, I thought maybe it was a spiritual type being, but clearly was not human. It sensed I was staring at it, looked over its right shoulder; looked at me, then looked down at the dog, immediately started to run, slanty into the middle of the street & down the street. Its knees were backwards. As it ran, it began to gradually fade, like the edges of it kept disappearing until I couldnít see it anymore. A friend suggested it sounded like an insect-type alien or praying mantis alien.

Iím in my late 50s, donít drink or get stoned, and this is not a Halloween prank. I would really love to know if anyone knows what this might be.
