It was a warm summer’s day in August of 1978 when a Toronto area man had an experience with a strange creature that would forever change his life.
Ernest (he would only allow his first name to be used) was a soft-spoken 51 year old at the time of his harrowing experience. He and his wife had been raising a litter of kittens. One of the kittens apparently disappeared and Ernest decided to search for it in the vicinity of their area. Closeby he stumbled upon the opening to a dark “cave” and crawled approx.10ft inwards. This is where he said, “I saw a living nightmare that I’ll never forget.”
Armed only with a flashlight Ernest encountered a creature of unknown origin. He described the monster as “tall and thin, almost like a humanoid, large teeth.” It has the eyes that truly stood out, “orange and red, slanted.”
Ernest spoke reluctantly with reporters as to what occurred next. The creature spoke to him. “I’ll never forget it,” he said. “It said, ‘Go away, go away,’ in a hissing voice. Then it took off down a long tunnel off to the side. I got out of there as fast as I could. I was shaking with fear.”
