The story starts when:
"A boy (he was 13 at the time of the first encounter) and his friends were out in one of his parent's fields, sitting around a campfire, eating pizza, and throwing snowballs at each other. Suddenly, a strange beam of light appeared in the field and started moving towards the boys. The group got spooked because they could not identify the source of the light, but calmed down when it disappeared.
"Three years later, the boy and another one of his friends saw three of the strange lights above a creek. He and his friend saw those lights several times over a span of a few nights. the boy also saw a large, glowing, oval shaped object (a UFO?) floating towards Lake DuBay one night at 1:56 a.m. Six minutes later, the object came back and shot off towards the creek, leaving a streak trail behind it.
"He would still camp out with friends on his parents' property, and a strange light would illuminate the campsite from time to time. They also saw an odd, triangular head looking at them from a nearby cornfield.
"Not long after that, one of the boy's friends said something rammed into the side of his pickup truck. He said the creature followed him home and tore gardening tools off of a shed, but he never saw what it was. Another one of his friends saw the creature cross the road, running on two legs. He said it was six feet tall and grayish in color. After it crossed the road, it dropped onto all fours and ran towards there river.
"A week later, the boy and his friend Jason saw the creature standing in the middle of the road. It stared at them with yellow eyes and had pointy ears. The boy said the thing had a human-like body, canine legs, and tan, oily skin. It was very thin (they could see its ribs) and it had no tail.
"The boy said that, after seeing the creature, he thinks the UFO he saw could have been picking it up (or maybe dropping it off?) Strange lights and UFOs have been associated with Bigfoot and Dogman sightings before, so maybe it's possible the boy and his friends saw an alien werewolf."
