Suddenly he heard five loud yells coming from the woods; he walked about 100 yards further and heard 4 or 5 more yells. He looked up and saw something leaping at him. It ran a short way and overtook Belyea who had to stop and face it. The creature stood up on its rear legs with mouth open and with forepaws waving it charged at him. Belyea swung his ax but missed, he then ran for it. The creature then leaped off into the woods, but he did not run far before he saw it coming again.
