A young child that had been playing around his backyard all morning first heard strange rustling sounds outside and then noticed that all the branch piles and leaves he had set up and been rearranged and piled differently. He rearranged his setup again and then walked around the house for about 15 minutes. He then came to his backyard to go back to his ‘fort’ and saw at his branch piling site a little human-like creature. He noticed that it was piling sticks in the piling site for him—perfect four inch around and four foot across sticks. The little man was climbing trees and snapping out branches. The witness gasped as it nimbly hopped out of trees and dropped sticks onto the pile. The creature was about 4 ft tall with a hunch on his back and covered with brown hair all over. He had such long hair that it covered everything on its body, however its hands had no hair and they were white. He saw no visible nose but black beady eyes. The creature walked like a monkey. Stunned, the young witness stood rooted to the spot. Suddenly his legs felt ice cold and he ran away, trembling. As he ran, his legs heated up and felt like they were on fire. The witness locked himself in his room with his Golden Retriever and both fell asleep, but soon woke up to the sound of rustling leaves outside his window. He cracked open his shutter and saw the strange creature racing through the leaves, bouncing up and down, and speeding around in circles. It took a handful of leaves and threw them in the air as it danced under the decaying shower. The witness’s dog growled and the creature stopped ‘dancing’, rooted to its spot. It looked shame-faced at the messed up leaf pile and slouched away. The witness watched as it made its way to the woods, it then hopped nimbly into the trees and gathered sticks, it then laid them on a pile and suddenly noticing the witness, and it straightened up and grinned at him with crooked, rounded, stubby teeth. It waved its left foot at the witness, as if in a greeting and then disappeared into the treetops.
For the next few days, it left the witness sticks until the witness’s mother saw it and screamed in terror. The witness had started leaving the creature grapefruit halves which it ate gratefully. But after the incident with the witness mother it peeped through its shutters and then never returned.
