My name is Simon Austin from Coleford near Gloucester, I have lived here all my life . I never knew where to report my encounter until a friend of mine told me about mark Farnell a friend of his who follows sightings of unexplainable creatures like Bigfoot. I work in Staunton, one morning I woke at 05.00am and got myself ready for work.
As I was driving down scowles road heading for the A4136 highway, keeping in mind there was very little to no traffic I approached a left turn junction, near stowfield quarry at that point my car was hit by a small log or branch. In shock I looked to my right from where the sound emitted from and what I saw was frightening to say the least. I witnessed a creature sprinting towards me on all fours; at least that’s what I thought until it came closer. It was running on two legs but low to the floor. It resembled a dog but had a long snout but was much taller and was very thin. I accelerated off as fast as I could. The creature was black in colour and had frosted eyes. I have never seen anything like this before and hope I don’t see it again. I hope this helps in anyway.
