“A large black entity lives in the woods outside our home in Panama City, FL. My family believes the reason we see so much weird stuff is because the land our neighborhood was built on was once woods. We believe the beings we encounter once resided in the woods that were destroyed to make our neighborhood.
Behind our neighborhood is a large recreation park. Our neighborhood and the recreational park are surrounded by miles of dense woods and swampy areas. Anyways, we often see the being outside our chain link fence in the backyard. It is a large black being that has appeared in our dreams and has shown itself a couple times to me and other members of the family. When this creature is present it scares the crap out of our three dogs.The being likes to knock on doors and windows but cannot come into the house (thank God!). We notice that it comes to the fence every night when we let the dogs out one last time before everyone goes back inside for bed.
One night, my husband and I decided to sit outside with one of the dogs while she did her potty business out back. She kept barking, and the hair stood up on her back. She is a big dog, not afraid of the bears or coyotes that live in the woods behind our house. We knew she was genuinely spooked. She is a 140 lb Newfie who is not afraid to show her teeth. That was when I saw the black entity bouncing off the tops of the trees like a bird. It disappeared into the shadows of the tree and I saw nothing but my husband and I felt watched. Then we noticed that our dog started attacking the fence. She suddenly backed away from the fence and tried desperately to herd us back into the house. We heard loud footsteps trudging away and shined a flashlight immediately in the direction of the footsteps but saw nothing.
Does this thing not like us for taking away its wooded home? Is it a nature spirit? A demon? I am planning on documenting these strange occurrences with digital cameras, recorders, and hopefully infrared or night vision cameras as well. I also hope to capture EVPs to share along with my stories.”
