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 #13: Unknown Creature Runs Through Yard in Pahrump, Nevada and Disappears.
Submitted by Alan
“It was around 1:30 a.m. in July 2015. I was outside in my backyard working on my chainsaw getting it ready for a day of cutting wood. I was in the middle of sharpening my chain when I heard so rustling coming from the other side of the house and the sound started getting louder so I stopped what I was doing to focus on what I was hearing. It sounded light but fast, all of a sudden out of the shadows came this creature that wasn’t a dog nor a pig or anything that i have ever seen in my life.
This creature came running right up to me about five feet in front of me and made almost a perfect 90 degree left hand turn, when it did I was able to take a good look at it. It was hairless and had an elongated nose with large ears and a long tail, all were hairless. Hate to say it but after it made the left turn i made a turn to the safety of my house. I say it again I Have Never Seen Anything Like That!!!!!
My wife was wondering why I flew through the door freaking out, I told her about what i saw so we both grabbed our flashlights (After I changed my shorts… Just Kidding) and we headed outside to try to find some tracks. We did find some and followed them from where I heard it coming towards me and after the turn that took it out towards the back of our property (which is all dirt we live in the desert) the tracks cut back towards the way it came from and in the middle of the dirt the tracks just stopped. One thing about the tracks that I do remember is they were more hoof like than paws.”
