Big Springs, Texas, 2005
Location: Near Big Springs, Texas
Time: Mid Afternoon
The 13-year old witness was out
hunting with his grandfather and had briefly separated from his
grandfather following a flock of quail. He strode up a mountain,
carrying his shotgun and a bag of shells. He scratched his leg with a
rock and tended the wound for a few minutes; he then heard ducks nearby
and knew there had to be a pond to wash his cut.
at the pond he began to splash water on his leg when he suddenly heard a
splashing sound. He looked up and saw a man leaning over, drinking from
the pond. It only took him a few seconds to realize that this was no
ordinary man. This man had scales and a lizard’s head. The witness was
petrified---he couldn’t move a muscle. He stood there watching the
strange creature drink, when all of the sudden he saw it jerk its head
up. It eyed the witness for what seemed like hours, it then jumped in
the water and began swimming toward the witness. The witness managed to
shoot three shells at it and then ran from the area as fast as he could.
After telling his grandfather he was not believed.
