Well, I didnt really know what to call them! LOL The handful of reports Ive read (from modern times), of people seeing these little things, many do report them to be wearing little hats, and some with jackets, (I cannot recall any that reported curly toes shoes or pointy ears), although they didnt specify whether the hats/clothing, appeared to be 'Elven'.



When J Turner described the little 6" man he saw, he just said it had clothing on, (he didnt specifically mention whether it was 'elven or fairy clothing' either).


I hesitated to even use the word Imp, but I didnt know what else to call them, so people would know what Im talking about. I am sorry if I offended any elves, fairies, imps, goblins, trolls, Billy Goat Gruffs, etc)

Here's one from Debbie in Pennsylvania, rstevens62. I would subscribe to her YouTube channel if I were you, rstevens62. And thanks for having an open mind about these weird things going on. I appreciate it.

There's a lot going on out there, huh?
Oh yes, there is!


It is kind of funny to think about seeing such a thing, but some people apparently have!


And like Ive brought up in other cases...if it was just people making stories up...why are there not 100s, or 1000s of these sighting reports, (like the Dogman, lake monsters, etc etc)...


If someone is willing to make up a totally fake Dogman encounter (for whatever reason), I doubt they would have any qualms making up an Elf sighting too!

Haven't you watched These Woods Are Haunted ? ...Because if you had, there are many people who have had their own experiences with these Dogman-like creatures and they are genuinely afraid of going into the woods afterwards.

Everyone who does not believe in these things always suggests they are bears standing on two legs.
Just like "weather balloons" or "swamp gas" eh?

Who's talking about "weather balloons or "swamp gas"? No, I haven't watched "These Woods Are Haunted". Never heard of it. Regardless, I was replying about the 2 kids who were fishing in a national park at night. It was dark, so it's unlikely they could clearly identify anything. I'm not saying that's what it was. It was a suggestion. There are bears, Black Bears, in Kentucky's Daniel Boone National Forest. What makes you so certain that it wasn't a bear, eh? It's a lot more plausible than a "big jet black bipedal wolf", wouldn't you agree?

Dont you remember being young? I sure do. LOL I was never into fishing or hunting that much, but Ive done my fair share of running around forests at night, depending on phase of the moon, its not THAT dark, especially if you are familiar with the area, and there are pole lights in some areas.


You are right, it could have been a bear, but who knows, LOTS of people are reporting these things, and I surely do not believe they are all mis identifications, (if that were the case, I think bear reports and sightings would be much higher in general in these areas), strangely the southern OH area I am involved with, has VERY FEW reports of bears, but lots of Dogman sightings...(how can both be accurate at the same time?)...


If people are 'mis identifying' bears...well, there are going to be many people who DO NOT mis identify and report them AS BEARS!


Another thing, Im not sure bears would be so quick to run away, especially if humans were in their territory, or really especially if they had cubs nearby.
