Unidentified CRYPTID BIPED Observed by U.S. Military Unit in Afghanistannoreply@blogger.com (Lon Strickler)

A DEA/US military counternarcotics unit in Helmand Province, Afghanistan observes an unknown bipedal creature descend a cliff face, grab two goats, and effortlessly ascend the same cliff.

"I have a very strange and unusual story of something we saw in Afghanistan in 2009. I was part of a small unit heading into the southernmost part of Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Our primary mission was to curtail the flow of weapons coming across the border from Pakistan. To accomplish this mission we had some DEA guys with us as we were attempting to slow the heroin flow from Afghanistan into Pakistan. The Taliban used the profits from the heroin sales to purchase millions of dollars of munitions in Pakistan to fight the coalition.

Anyway, we're on day seven of a patrol away from the war looking for some bad guys in an area near the Helmand River. There are lots of caves and ruins in that area dating back forever. It's just an extremely wild place.

One August evening a buddy and myself are on watch just talking about what our first meal will be when we get back to the States. I look up the side of a cliff base and see movement coming from my left to my right downhill towards the river basin. I pull up my rifle and look through my ACOG scope and see a red-haired large figure headed down towards a herd of goats. By this time my buddy also has his rifle shouldered and is seeing the same thing. It was the color of an Orangutan (reddish-orange) but was moving on two legs extremely quickly, probably covering 100 meters in around 9 to 10 seconds, across some rough terrain. It was also larger than a man though I really couldn't tell you how large. It seemed as if the goats were aware of its presence but they did not make an attempt to move away. They all just stood there in silence staring at the thing coming down the embankment.

When it reached the goats it reached down with one arm and pulled one up by its front legs and threw it over its shoulder. It then moved to another goat picked that one up and threw it over the other shoulder. It then turned to start back up the cliffside with both goats in tow and seemed to be moving just as quickly as it was when it came down. The extra weight of the goats on each shoulder not seeming to hinder it in the least. We watched it until it reached an area of known caves and disappeared. This all happened about 500 yards from our position. My buddy and I both looked at each other and you could tell we were thinking the same thing, 'WTH was that?'

At the end of the deployment, I went in and talked to one of the environmental health guys and told him the story. Those guys are supposed to be experts on all the critters and such you may encounter when you're in the country, but he seemed to not have an answer for me. Anyway, to this day I still have no idea what that thing was. It certainly was not a man."

NOTE: I have heard and read of several unidentified cryptid bipeds that were seen by soldiers throughout Afghanistan during the conflict. Most of the descriptions seemed to be canine-like. It's hard to tell what these two soldiers observed. Lon

Welcome to Phantoms & Monsters 'Personal Reports' - cryptid & unexplained accounts directly from the archives of Phantoms & Monsters, and the Phantoms & Monster Fortean Research team. Narrated by Lon Strickler. Join us in the chat, discuss, and ask me questions about the accounts.

Featured in this edition:

The Appalachian Trail meanders amid mountains and valleys for 2,190 miles through 14 states from Georgia to Maine. Hundreds of thousands of people step foot on it each year. The biggest danger is not being prepared for the challenging hike. But there are also bears, coyotes, snakes, and ticks that frequent it. Then there are those 'things' that are not usually talked about. Sit back and listen to a few of the strange and terrifying tales that have become Appalachian Trail lore.

In this episode, I will describe the reports and incidents in detail and answer all questions from the chat room.
