  1. When I was a senior in high school I went with my gf and her friend to Mt Misery. We actually made love in the cemetery But when we got back to the car to drink and hang out we heard what sounded like a gang of kids (kids our age) being loud and boisterous and shouting. So I got out of the car to see who was around. There was no one in sight and it was all of a sudden dead silent. I got back in the car and some time later I needed to pee. So I walked to the end of the road (Mt Misery has a dead end that ends with woods) as I was going I saw this large black creature the best way to describe it would be a prowling horse. It’s shoulder blades rotated with every step forward as if it were ready to pounce like a leap it’s but I swear it was very similar to a horse! I ran for my life and said we got to get the hell out of here. I never went back.
