00:30:19,339 --> 00:30:22,124 several groups of hunters kept going far into the night. 254 00:30:25,084 --> 00:30:26,389 Later, we got word 255 00:30:26,433 --> 00:30:28,391 that one hunting party had got the creature 256 00:30:28,435 --> 00:30:31,917 to scream angrily back at a wounded rabbit call, 257 00:30:31,960 --> 00:30:34,180 but moved deeper into the forest 258 00:30:34,223 --> 00:30:36,095 when they tried to get closer. 259 00:31:09,868 --> 00:31:12,914 Not too many of the hunters were interested in plunging 260 00:31:12,958 --> 00:31:15,395 into thick woods in pitch darkness 261

appearance and the sounds he makes frightened us, 264 00:31:29,104 --> 00:31:33,282 our immediate reaction was to try to kill him. 265 00:31:33,326 --> 00:31:35,981 I suppose if a strange-looking creature 266 00:31:36,024 --> 00:31:38,200 from another world showed up, 267 00:31:38,244 --> 00:31:39,810 he'd get the same reception. 268 00:31:40,550 --> 00:31:42,335 Actually, at first, 269

disappeared. 272 00:31:50,256 --> 00:31:52,345 So, far as we know, 273 00:31:52,388 --> 00:31:54,651 he wasn't seen again for eight years. 274 00:31:56,001 --> 00:31:57,959 Where did he go? 275
