(Show Printer-friendly Version)
STATE: New Mexico
COUNTY: Otero County
LOCATION DETAILS: Four miles north of Mescalero School.
NEAREST TOWN: Mescalero Apache Nation
NEAREST ROAD: (Withheld)
OBSERVED: We hear screams almost every night throughout the spring and summer months.
This particular incident occured after midnight, approximately 1:00am. I was awakened by all the neighborhood dogs barking. Even my dog was barking outside my window. Suddenly my dog began to cry. I sat up and walked into the living room and opened the sliding door enough to peek out side and listen to what the dogs were barking at. When I heard a loud scream like screeching then it turned into a loud holler.
This screaming sounds went on for about ten minutes and came closer to my home. I then closed the sliding door and continued to peek out my living room window.
I saw this tall hairy thing like a man standing next to the other window looking inside my home. I got down on all fours and began to crawl into the kitchen where he couldn't see me. I remained there for about five minutes, then looked toward the window where he was standing and could not see him. I crawled to the window and peeked out. I saw it walking into the dark carrying something in its hand.
The next morning when I looked out my front porch my deer jerky that was hanging to cure was gone.
ALSO NOTICED: There was a sour like body order in the air when he was present. I was in the home at the time but I could still smell it.
OTHER WITNESSES: My family which includes Husband, and two boys.
OTHER STORIES: Through the summer months my family and I hear screms like screeching/hollers after midnight.
ENVIRONMENT: Open land and pine treesalong the mountain tops.
There is a traugh full of water for out horses.
