UK Freedom of Information

Request on Dogman/Werewolf activity

           By Researcher Neil Cottee

Ok not sure what you guys and girls will make of this but this is my experiences.
I've never written this so it's hard for me to put in words.
I grew up in the countryside near Essex, UK. We lived in a very rural area surrounded by thick woods and fields. There was a small farm down a single track road.
My first encounter of this thing that I can only describe as a beast was in our garden at about 11.30pm when i was about 13/14. My step dad had just driven back from the pub and was in the kitchen making toast and i went down to get a drink of water. The back garden flood light was switched to off as it was very blinding when it came on. My step dad noticed something moving about in the garden from looking out of the window. He questioned it so I took a look and as we tried to work out what it was he switched the flood light on. Plain as day this thing was on all fours drinking water from the pond. It was huge. It was black and very wide, very muscular. It turned and looked towards the house. Assuming it couldn't see us from the blinding light. I've never seen anything like it. It's face was just like a dog but it looked fierce and it's features were very strong. Covered in thick black hair from head to toe. My step dad and i just stood there in shock. It moved away from the pond, stood up on its back legs and leapt over the end garden hedge. This hedge was about 10ft tall. Then it was gone. My step dad turned off the light and told me to get to bed. The next morning he told me that we were never to discuss what we saw again. Whenever I tried to mention it he just denied it as if it never happened. Another time I was walking my friend home across the fields past the farm barn. There was a large broken hole in the side of the barn which we had to walk past to get down the track. It was around lunchtime so day light. As we got closer to the barn we both noticed this animal edged inside of the barn looking out of the hole at us. It moved and i knew I'd seen it before. We both questioned it but decided to back off slowly and it moved further backwards into the barn. We walked back to mine very quickly and never went down there again.
We had a few neighbours in the area who all said that they had heard weird howling noises at night.  But quickly were convinced it was foxes. I grew up in the countryside and i know what foxes sound like and these howlings were not of a fox.
There was 1 report sent to the police about an unusual animal in the area after something huge ran out in front of a dog walker into the woods. The dogs refused to walk near to where the animal was and sat whimpering then it shot out across the field into the woods. The police got a casting of some prints but then it all went hush and never to be mentioned again?
So this is my personal experience and i am thankful that I no longer live in Essex.
ype your paragraph here.

JULY - 2017 - NORFOLK COUNTY - ENGLAND
I received a report that stated a driver on the way back from the cinema in NORWICH 
encountered a HUGE BLACK WOLF  eating a carcass along the FAKENHAM road. 
Fakenham is a small town about 25 miles NORTH WEST of Norwich, famous for its HORSE RACING track
The road toward it takes you out of Norwich City into increasingly rural areas, with the area North of Fakenham itself being very sparse indeed
The “creature” was described as standing around a metre “at the withers”, with YELLOW EYES and black matted hair. 
The driver slowed and the WOLF briefly looked up before continuing to eat. The witness continued home, shaken.
I invited my close friend JO MULLINS to join me for the weekend with a view to investigating the report
Jo is a life long ALIEN CONTACTEE whom i first met in the legendary RENDLESHAM FOREST back in 2003. 
She has a myriad of experience and when the two of us get together we tend to both encounter a lot more phenomena
We both “sensed” the area of the original encounter as being North of FOXLEY WOODS - an area well known for various spiritual phenomena, notably WITCHCRAFT 
We then carried on through Fakenham, travelling further North through WELLS-NEXT-THE-SEA and on to BURNHAM MARKET  
( Birth place of Britain’s famous Napoleonic war admiral “Lord Horatio Nelson” the hero of TRAFALGAR )
We left Burnham on a small single track road heading toward HOLKHAM HALL ( Royal estate ) 
which meant passing by CREAKE ABBEY medieval ruins & visitor center.
 
We turned in, hoping to grab a coffee but it was late Sunday afternoon & we found the cafe already closed. 
The entrance to Creake abbey sits between two farm fields. 
As i made the turn, Jo screamed out “look. Look there” !!
At the field entrance to our LEFT was what appeared very much like a NORTH AMERICAN COYOTE. 
I have seen hundreds of English foxes and i guarantee it was NOT one of those.
THE CREATURE WALKED UPRIGHT 
It never at any point dropped to all fours, but continued to walk upright
It was very thin, with a disproportionately LARGE HEAD, of GOLD / AMBER color, between 4 & 5 feet tall with a coat that looked of generally poor condition
It was facing at first, then turned quickly away and walked downhill, quickly disappearing into the field.
I drove down through the abbey, swung left and came back up by a circular road that took us right along the far edge of that same field. 
I stopped at the top - back where we started from -  and went in on foot but was unable to locate the creature, despite that gut “inner knowing” that the damn thing was still there !
We sat there a while at the mouth of the field looking for any sign of movement, but when nothing happened after about 30 minutes we continued our trek toward Holkham
We were coming up the tiny coastal road right on top of Holkham hall when Jo again yelled & pointed to 
AN AMERICAN EAGLE hovering directly over the farmers house at the front of a crop field to our Right
We observed the Bird for several minutes as it turned and flew out toward the sea just a few hundred yards away
There could be no shred of doubt as to what it was
It would have been extremely unusual to see even ONE exclusively American animal wandering the North Norfolk countryside, much less one walking upright, 
but to see TWO both within minutes of each other ?
I wont bullshit or speculate about time warps, portholes etc, 
i will just leave the reader to think on whatever they feel may have occurred on that hot July afternoon .... ?
Some may consider it of relevance that this is an area frequented by the British royal family. 
Indeed, shortly afterward we entered the local pub & were told we had just missed Prince Harry & family dropping in for a cold beer !!
