    I wasn't sure if this should go in the Cryptozoology area or elsewhere, but figured this was the most relevant spot, I was also positive I had shared this before on here but it may have been on AH...

    Anyways, a few years back my best friend and I were hanging out with our other best friend, along with his girlfriend at her house. Best Friend #1 and I decided to head back to his house, as it was planned for the three of us to spend the night there. His house wasn't terribly far, about a mile. On the way we would pass our local park which was really sketchy at night, and then walk a really long winding road that ultimately led to his house. Best Friend #2 decided to stay and spend time with his girlfriend.

    Best Friend #1 and I make it back to his house, make some food, play some video games, watch some Wilfred. A couple hours go by and Best Friend #2 messages me telling me he's heading over soon, a bit after this (like 15-20 minutes) I get a call from Best Friend #2 I but miss it, and he calls again and I pick it up.

    He's frantically asking me and Best Friend #1 to go meet him along the way. I relay this to Best Friend #1, but he's stoned and tells me to tell Best Friend #2 "Naw, just tell him to hurry his ass up" (or something similar, but dickish) but something in Best Friend #2's voice makes me feel bad, so I ask him what's wrong. He says he won't progress this way unless one or both of us goes to meet him.

    I tell him I'll go walk towards him and stay on the phone with him. Along the way from his girlfriend's to Best Friend #1's house is a gas station, a bank, and a Dunkin Donuts. Behind them all, and down a hill, is a path that goes for pretty much the length of our entire town, or at least the part we live in, along a river. We normally hung out down there or used it to travel, but not at night because there's no lighting. There's also a broken down factory at the very end of it with "Radioactive"/"No Swimming" signs by the water.

    I made it to the bank and met up with Best Friend #2, and he tells me something I've questioned him about to this day (he's never believed in anything paranormal and would scoff at me or anyone else who claimed to have any experiences, at this point in time anyway). He says he made it between the bank and the Dunkin Donuts, and saw someone sitting on the curb directly across from the side of the street that goes down to the hill/river/factory area.

    He said he thought nothing of it even though it was around 1am at the time, until he saw the person stand up and dart across on all fours across the street and leap down the hill onto the pathway. I asked him if it could have been a dog, or any kind of animal, but he insisted it sat like a person and stood up bipedally until it ran.

    Whenever we pass that spot I bring the story up and there's still no explanation as to what he saw. I always wondered what it could have been that he saw, because there are no sightings I know of of any kind of skinwalker/chupacabra sightings anywhere near where I live. I decided to post it here because I was just talking to him the other day about the whole thing and it brought it to my mind again for the first time in quite a while... but I do still remember the night and the panic in his voice when he called me, it was the first time I had ever heard it from him...

    I showed him pictures like this before, and asked if it's close to what he saw, but he said from afar it looked just like a person sitting on the curb, until it stood up and eventually got down on all fours and darted across the road, then he said it looked more like a dog, but much bigger...

    Has anyone heard of/experienced anything like this they could offer some insight on?....

    Right - things like what's in the picture I attached...?

    I'm aware of all the things people post on YouTube from all over the world, a good majority of which are fake or clearly edited, and I'm not saying whatever he saw looks like the thing in the picture, I didn't see it. I can only try to match by his description, but even so, he still claims it looked nothing like that, and more resembled a very large German shepherd. The only reason the whole encounter scared him was the fact that it was sitting like a person and stood up like a bipedal before darting off. When he told me it was sitting like a person, I figured sure, I've seen dogs sit like people before, that's not entirely unusual. But standing up completely on two legs without support...?

    Since it was from a distance late at night and he might not have been sober or not he could easily have misidentified and animal being startled by his approach and the motion between jumping up and running on all fours just looked like bipedal locomotion.

    Also the image you posted shows something that could not run or walk quickly on either two or four legs.

    I do remember reading on a website that this particular creature was a fraud. I have no link to send anyone to see what was written. To my eyes it looks bogus anyway. I always refer back to Sturgeon’s Law... “90% of everything is crap.”

    I agree with Sturgeon......especially in this case since that critter is not anatomically feasible as shown.

    Yeah I've taken that into account that his state of mind may have not been clear enough to dictate what he may have seen.

    The image I posted was just an example, I googled that and showed it to him after it initially happened to see if he could compare it but he said it wasn't like what he saw... I never meant to imply that was what he had seen, but more of trying to get myself a mental image of what it could look like...

    Yeah I know the creature is fake, I think I saw a post somewhere where someone was trying to say they caught it on their trailcam or something and that it was a proven hoax...

    What he saw wasn't the picture I posted, it was more of me trying to find a visual representation of what it was he saw, so I showed it to him and he said it wasn't really close, that it more resembled a larger than usual German Shepherd. I haven't been able to find any picture of anything that he's agreed comes close to what it was that he saw...

    To be honest I'd say he saw a big coyote.

    The thought crossed my mind that it was some sort of wildlife, but we don't really have any in the populated areas around where I live. There's too many people and cars. If it happened 20 or so minutes outside of where I am, I'd definitely say it's an explanation...

    Of course it could just be a coyote that wandered a little too far.

    Yeah, Chicopee. I'm not sure how far it would be for coyotes, or any wildlife of that sort to make it around here. I know around this time of year they post warning up around Mt. Skinner for bears and other larger wildlife, but that's at least half an hour away by car...

    I thought it was Belchertown.....but there are still enough woods and hiding places even in Chicopee.

    Nope... maybe because I posted the thread about going to the Belchertown State School..? It's not too far off, though...

    And yeah, but that area is a long busier street with a high school, gas stations, a few different shops, and the citys main park all nestled on it, the only "woods" around it would be down on a path next to the Connecticut River, but it doesn't offer many hiding spots...
