Time: 9:00 pm
Our Dog was outside sitting on the porch and started growling and had his back up to the house door. He vary rarely barks or growls so we knew something was up. I went outside stood on the porch while my dog was still pressed against the door, to see what was going on. There was this animal about forty feet away, next to a line of pine trees, it just stared at us for about 30-40 seconds, never making a sound. I was yelling for my friend in the house, when the animal started slowly walking away. This animal which at first I thought was a dog, definately was not, it was the size of my medium size lab and was walking like a cat would. It was way to big for a house cat plus my dog would not have went nuts over a house cat. I Went in the house for a flashlight to see if i could get a better look, but it had left by the time i came back outside. I Could hear the neighbors dogs one by one down the street start to bark.
