The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word cryptid as “An animal whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated, such as the yeti.” For the following witnesses to living cryptids, there is no dispute. In this series of National Cryptid Society’s case files, you will read what the witnesses have experienced in their own words.
Keep an open mind when reading these accounts, and also remember one’s perception and memory of an event can be influenced by the emotions felt at the time of the occurrence. The contributors to this series of articles are doing the best they can to recount what are in some cases very shocking and traumatic experiences.

NCS Case File #8: Fairies in Western France
Submitted by FrenchCrepe
“I know it sounds stupid, and I think there’s a logical explanation for what we saw, but I just don’t have it yet.
It happened only once, seven years ago, during the day, spring or summer. I was at my parent’s new house (Western France, in the country). I was talking to my mom, we were sitting on the sofa, next to the window. Then I watched a creature, flying from that window to the one in the next room. I only lasted 2-3 seconds, but I saw it clearly; it was the size of a bird (smaller than a pigeon), it was dark-brown, it seemed to have small wings, one or two pairs, it was thin, and shaped like a human.
I looked at my mom, asked her if she saw it too, she said yes. I asked what she thought it was, she said she didn’t know and that she didn’t want to talk about it anymore.
I know it sounds crazy, and I would not believe that story if I hadn’t seen that thing with my own eyes.”
