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 #14: Shadowy Sphere-Shaped Creature or Entity in Anacoco, Louisiana
Submitted by Kim
“I was sitting on my front porch talking to my best friend. We were lost in conversation and we both heard someone running through my house.
We talked about whether the back door was locked because we were sitting right beside the front door and there were no side doors. We talked about whether it could have been just the floor shifting that made it sound like someone just ran through the house. We went inside and no one was inside the house.
Later on, we were back on the front porch talking and there was this thick black fog, shadow thing that we both saw. It was like a large weird shaped ball of just jet black color. Like a shadow that light could not pass through.
It stayed for a few minutes at the roof part of the porch and then disappeared. Neither of us know if we were simply tired and both imagined it or if it actually did happen but we both saw it and could not see the roof of the porch or around this shadow.
It never happened again.”
