MARCH 1978, KENT, OHIO, USA, TWO MEN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Ufologist Don Worley reportedly told in 1989 that near Kent, Ohio, in March 1978, late at night, two men camping on the edge of a small lake watched a large round, pulsating ball of light hovering above the lake.

Both men had a "peculiar reaction" to the light and felt that "their sense of fear had been somehow altered or heightened."

Later, they went to the lake's edge to fish and began hearing heavy footfalls coming from the direction of the nearby woods. They pointed their flashlights towards the woods and illuminated a huge hairy figure standing between two trees. The figure had huge dangling arms below his knee.

One of the witnesses fired six shots at the creature apparently hitting it, but it crouched and hid behind a tree. The frightened men then ran into their tent.

Moments later, they heard loud pounding noises coming from each side of the tent. Both men then ran out fired two shots and fled in their vehicle. Both men then suffered from multiple symptoms like great thirst, depression, nausea, etc. They also had peculiar dreams of being taken onboard an object by tall hairy creatures.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Kent, Ohio, in March 1978, late at night, two men camping on the edge of a small lake watched a large round, pulsating ball of light hovering above the lake. Both men had a peculiar reaction to the light and felt that their sense of fear had been somehow altered or heightened. Later they went to the lake's edge to fish and began hearing heavy footfalls coming from the direction of the nearby woods. They pointed their flashlights towards the woods and illuminated a huge hairy figure standing between two trees. The figure had huge dangling arms below his knee. One of the witnesses fired six shots at the creature apparently hitting it, but it crouched and hid behind a tree. The frightened men then ran into their tent. Moments later they heard loud pounding noises coming from each side of the tent. Both men then ran out fired two shots and fled in their vehicle. Both men then suffered from multiple symptoms like great thirst, depression, nausea, etc. They also had peculiar dreams of being taken onboard an object by tall hairy creatures.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Don Worley, UFO Universe Summer 1989."
