A man and a woman in Chicago, IL have reported seeing a large, slender creature in the Schiller Park Woods in late December of 2019. They claim this being was seen during an attempted spiritual ritual and, though they had smoked pot earlier, they were completely clear-headed during the incident in question.
UFO ClearingHouse describes the woman’s statement as follows:
“They were almost complete with the ritual when they both said she heard a very high pitched sound that came out of nowhere. When she looked up, she saw the being attempting to hide behind a row of trees about 15 yards from them. The being she described as being between 7-8 feet tall and appeared extremely thin and looked like he was wearing a grey jumpsuit. She said that the being’s arms were very long and hung to just above his knees and looked like they had claws. I asked her to please describe this and she said they were long and just looked like they were tipped with claws or what looked like claws.”
“She went further in describing the being as being smooth headed, no indication of hair and with eyes that were insect-like only jet black and took up most of its face.”
The woman went on to state that there had been an unusual absence of wildlife leading up to, during, and after the sighting which is rare for a park normally teeming with deer, squirrels, raccoons and the like. Furthermore, when the creature finally vanished into the tree line, they both stated that they felt a strong, overwhelming sense of fear and urge to leave. As of January 3, the couple has not been back.
This must of course be taken with a grain of salt because even though you may not think you’re high enough to have it alter your perceptions of the world around you, pot is a mind altering substance, and could very well do so even in a subtle manner; especially when you’re engaging in activities that prime you to expect the supernatural.
Then again, you never know…
