It was a few years ago. I never really came to any of these sites since then because, honestly, I think they're stupid just because of all the people who want to be cool. Anyways. To my point:
I was on the phone with two of my friends in my backyard and I went to my wooden fence to open the gate to go to my front yeard. (The fence is to tall to see over.) I was looking down as I walked through the gate and turned to close the latch, so I didn't see the "werewolf". I turned around and just froze. It was about seven feet tall or so, it was hunched over, very broad shoulders, had a more slim lower body, and definately had fur. It was dark, so I couldn't see any details. But it was pretty close to me. It looked like a reasonable version of a werewolf. It started walking towards me, so I freaked out and ran up the fence behind me and laid down on the top of it. My friends were still talking to each other and I was silent the whole time. I just stared down at it. It surprisingly didn't freak out after my own freak out, but just stood there and looked at me. So, like a dumbass, I ran inside and turned the frontyard light on. Now I realize how stupid that was. I ran back outside and it was gone. My guess is because I was an idiot and turned on a light without watching it. Anyways, it would be really cool if some people could share some stories or explain what it was. 'Cause I don't believe in werewolves. Just things that could inspire the legend.
** I was not at the time or ever was before that time intoxicated on any drug without medical purposes. Also, I had adequate sleep.
I've never been on a site like this either until yesterday. This is the first time i've read of a person seeing a werewolf. I know Native Americans have folklore regarding werewolves. This story doesn't sound outlandish. There could be a species of wolf that we are unaware of. I don't know if werewolfs exist. I just know of many people who ave experienced unknown phenomena of all sorts. My mother even told me of a being she seen two days ago that was green and had grids and tentacles. Who am I to say that the experience wasn't real, or real to her, because I'm not an eyewitness to it.
I have my own experience that was heckled at, but heckling doesn't change what you experienced anyway, and it definitely doesn't help to understand something either.
Might I suggest you get a copy of "The Beast of Bray Road" book, plus the author has published two others about American werewolves. Most of the sightIngs are vey much like yours and with so many peole reporting these sightings, there must be something to it. I don't recall the author's name but you can look it up on the internet. I know Amazon has these books. DON'T DISPAIR, YOU IN FACT DID SEE AN ACTUAL UNKNOWN "SOMETHING."
