New Brunswick

We received the following report in 2014, but the event described happened approx. 2 decades ago. We have edited slightly in order to protect the witnesses privacy.

"I was playing in the woods with my older brother. We had done playing and decided to head back to the house. We lived in a relatively remote town in New Brunswick. At the time, there was no highway built, so my parents land (all wood) connected to a stretch of forest. When we were about 200 yards from the house, my older brother ran ahead to go climb some trees near the house. Being a slight introvert, I stayed back and casually day-dreamed back to the house. As I was walking by myself, I came to a point were there was a field. I had been walking in the woods, so as I walked, I walked unto the open field which was to my right. As soon as I was at the border of the field and the woods, I had a sudden grip of fear and felt like something "bad" was around. I looked into the field, and maybe 20 yards to the right of me, in the border between the field and the woods I saw something which paralyzed me. I was looking at a beast which stood on two legs, approx 5 to 6 feet tall, had a long snout which stooped downwards( mix between elephant and anteater?)  had long dragging ears( almost like a cocker spaniel) and from what I could tell it was covered or mostly covered in hair( although this detail is the only fuzzy one, cant confirm). As soon as I laid my eyes on it, it bolted away like it did not want to be seen. Now, the strange part is,( maybe because I startled it?) it ran towards the forest but following the line of the field and the woods, while it could of just ran in the woods behind it. The good thing about this, I had a view of it( its behind) for about 10 seconds as it ran for the woods on the adjacent side of the field. As it ran, I noticed it was a bit slouched ( it ran on two legs by the way!) the ears and snout were flopping up and down, I mostly remember the flopping as it ran. Now, I grew-up in the woods, so I have seen all the animals of that size around here run, bears, moose, deer and I can tell you it was not one of them. As a mater of fact, the only animal it slightly resembled is the deer.( in color) the way it ran, it reminded me ( years later) of pan from the movie pan's labyrinth. So, i guess to imagine it, imagine pan with long ears and a long snout. Now here is the kicker. a few years after the internet came out in 1997, I was curious to see if I could find anything on that. I DID! I found a drawing of the beast almost identical to what I had seen and it was a webpage based in the same province of new brunswick. I always wanted to find that site again, or a picture, but have never managed, This is why I found your website. I wish I would of taken more info then, but I was only young.


In further correspondence the experient shares: I am an avid reader of science, history and anything relating to the unknown,mysterious, etc...except for that one drawing I had mentioned previously, I have not found much on what I saw. Now that I writing this to you, I am recalling a moment when I was younger where one of my friend's father was reciting a story of his father. Apparently, when the grand-father was younger, he was working in the woods, had a "feeling" something was watching him and when he turned he saw an unworldly creature starring him down, then dashing into the woods. The figure was said to of been all black and taller than a man(but not ape-like like yeti). Only tale I remember any "old timer" recounting which had any resemblance to my encounter.
