Reported by David Holley
REPORT RECEIVED: From the field notes of David Holley.
TIME:Approximately 12:45 A.M.
LOCATION: Clarksville, Texas, Red River Co.
TERRAIN:Wooded, & pastureland
OBSERVED: On this particular evening/morning we were sitting in my friends front yard waiting on her two daughters to come in from their dates. Since they were several hours late, and since my friend L, had called me and told me she was scared as she thought she had heard growling the night before in the pasture behind her home, I was sitting with her waiting on the girls.
Approximately 12:30 A.M. the dogs in the neighborhood began barking and then just as quickly as they began barking they stopped. It was eerie.
Then...approximately 15 minutes later, we were startled when a vocalization of some sort filled the air. How can I explain what this sounded like? I suppose the best way to describe this vocalization was as follows.
"AAHHH-OOOOHHHH!" This continued to build in volume, and then stopped.
Let me stress this; IT WAS NOT A COW BAWLING FOR A LOST CALF!! IT WAS NOT COYOTES! (and) IT WAS NOT A PANTHER! (we do occasionally get one through our part of the state).
To be honest, I can't recall having ever heard anything quite like it.
Shortly after we heard the vocalization, one of L's, neighbors little dog came running into the yard. It would look towards the tree line pasture fence, growl and run towards the fence' stop...bark and run back to where we
were now standing.
Earlier in the week, L, had experienced what she was calling a prowler, but we couldn't find any evidence of anyone prowling around her house.
About 30 minutes later the girls returned home. As I was climbing into my pickup to leave, we once again heard the strange sound we'd heard earlier. Later that morning after we' gotten some rest L, and I rode down the
road/area we think the call came from. Note this...there are, or there were, as of 07/04/99, no livestock of any kind near the area we think the cries came from.
Description of Creature: None given
Activities of Witness: Sitting in front yard
Other Notes: This general area of NE Texas, has a history of bigfoot activity.
by another large animal. The sounds late up in the night were growls
