Visiting Carlsbad Caverns in 1966, 7 year old Celia Barton said something was 'grabbing at her' as she followed her parents while strolling down to the cavern’s Big Room. Annoyed that she kept activating her Instamatic's flash, her father finally confiscated the camera. Later, this picture was developed. Celia said she thought it wanted to play with her, but it smelled bad, 'like an old banana peel.’
Fishing in Hawk’s Lake near Clarkson, Minnesota in 1971, Jim Hughes, 16, landed what he thought was a ‘really big, ugly fish.’ He dropped it after unhooking it when it said, ‘Hurts!

Both claimed it had ‘man-like hands with fingers—and blue eyes.’ It scared the 'holy crap’ out of them.
