Campers call cops after seeing '5ft creature with glowing eyes'

What exactly did the group encounter in the forest that evening ? Image Credit: Midjourney
Deputies arrived on the scene in Kisatchie National Forest after a group of campers reported a very strange sighting.
Something strange is lurking in the remote woodlands of Louisiana - that is, at least, according to a recent report posted up on Facebook by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office.

The incident, which was reported at around 9:20pm on June 28th, saw deputies attend the scene of a 911 call from a group of high school graduates who claimed to have had an encounter with some sort of growling creature that was 5ft tall and had "glowing eyes".

"Deputies arrived on scene and began to walk towards the camp site looking for any suspicious activity or glowing eyes," the post reads. "Deputies then heard the group's whistle and located them unharmed."

"Deputies arrived at the camp site and successfully escorted the group out of the forest."
"Deputies reported the disposition as unable to locate any suspicious activity involving a growl with glowing eyes and standing 5-feet tall."

So what did the group encounter in the woods that evening ?

In all likelihood, either they encountered a bear, or they had ingested a bit too much alcohol.

It's also possible that the entire 911 call was little more than a hoax.

Sorry about the confusion here, that was me blowing off steam. Even Grim Reapers have a sense humor!

again, NO FOOTPRINTS found - or were they even searched for?! And "bear"... at nighttime? I doubt that. A lot of folks (parents) knew they were going and one likely took advantage of the young people's gullibility and fears. That is my most logical guess.

Not to be a contrarian, Earl, but if the ground is dry, and hard, footprints are unlikely. If you knew what to look for, you might find claw marks from a bear. The best places to see tracks is along river banks, or lake shores. Personally I doubt cops could tell the difference between bear tracks, and grouse scratching. You may be right though about a prank though.

High school kids out partying in the woods claim to see a 5ft creature with red glowing eyes. We of course have zero supporting evidence. Most creatures have red eye reflections so no big deal there and since I'm six ft two a five ft creature isn't very big either. Like the um bots story suggests the kids might have been drinking and we could add to that taking stuff. Idk how many kids were in this group but we're they all chickens? If I was there I would have checked it out not cowered and cryed for police. Of course if they pulled the hoax on the cops no need for them to have tried to check ... [More]
