There are many anecdotes about Skinwalkers online, particularly in Reddit. These occurrences usually transpire on Native American reservations and are supposedly only interrupted by the blessings of medicine men. The descriptions of the being are essentially always the same: a four-legged brute with a disturbingly human, albeit marred face, and orange-red gleaming eyes. Those who have seen a Skinwalker also stated that they were fast and made fiendish cries.

Skinwalker Ranch, also known as Sherman Ranch, is a business located on around 512 acres (207 hectares) southeast of Ballard, Utah. It is thought to be the site of countless paranormal incidents and UFO-related activities. The land, many believe, is cursed… perhaps even the inhabited of a skinwalker.With over 600 million views and counting, the hashtag skinwalker has been gaining an audience on TikTok.

Story

I ran out into the middle of the field, and just in time I see two dogs, they were standing up facing each other and fighting. I think “perfect two for one.” So I pump a shell into the chamber of Mr. 12 gauge and then it happened. The two dogs heard the rack, they both stopped, looked over at me, and ran away, ON THEIR BACK LEGS. Immediately I froze, and every ghost story about Skinwalkers and all the other Native legends I grew up with flew through my mind. Keep in mind I am a white guy, and up until then, these were all just boogie man stories the Native kids like to tell to scare us. That night, they became real to me.

It was maybe eleven at night, and we were playing truth or dare after telling scary stories, and my fourteen year old cousin dared me and the thirteen year old to go walk through the paths for ten minutes or so. I said yes right away, as I wasn’t easily scared and rather level headed, but my younger cousin was a bit more hesitant. We didn’t bring a flashlight because it wasn’t pitch dark yet, and we could see enough to not die. We were walking through the paths for about five minutes and could barely see the fire through the trees when we decided to turn. In the middle of the path, was a large dog-like creature, hunched over with its front hands an inch from the ground. (Source: thoughtcatalog.com)
