Luxembourg Stills - Before and After

Here are 2 pics taken the 5 october 2001 at the same place, one pic taken from far and the other one from near.

This shows that it was no tree or stone...

Compare with the other pic and you will see that.

(In Luxembourg)

Joseph Heinan sent Art Bell the following story from Frank Hansen who writes: I live in Luxembourg (small country in europe). August 8th, 2001 about 3.00Pm, the sun was shining and there were only a few clouds on the sky. I decided to go out for a walk, so I took my car and drove to a big forest (in Schouweiler). There are no streets near the forest, so i walked about 1km to reach it. I started to film the nature. After an hour I was deep inside the forest so I decided to go home. But suddenly I heard a little noise. I turned around, but I didn't see anything. A few secs later I heard a sound of breaking branches, I looked around and I saw a dark figure standing a few meters behind me. It was about 2m tall, dark haired and very big. I tried to film it, but it disappeared quickly, I couldnt follow anymore. After an hour I was at home again and I still could'nt believe what I saw there. My cam is a digital Sony so I made 3 small mpeg file and one picture which I send you. You can show it on your page or send it to an other person, I hope someone can explain this to me, I swear that it's not fake, nothing is manipulated in the film.

Additionally we received an email directly from Frank Hansen who writes: 10th august 2001 at about 3.00pm. The weather was quite good, only a few clouds on the sky, no rain and the sun was shining. My cam is a Sony digital handycam with a picture-function. All happened in Luxembourg (in Schouweiler), a very small country in Europe.

What happened: I decided to go out for a walk, I drove to a big forest (in Schouweiler). There are no streets or noise near the forest, I had to walk 1km to reach the forest. I took my cam with because I wanted to film the nature in that great weather. I started to film, then i made a few picshots with my cam. After some time i decided to go home because I was really deep in that forest. My cam was turned off so I wasn't ready to film. First I heard the noise of breaking branches, I looked around but I didnt see anything. Then suddenly I saw it. First it was a moving shadow in the distance, it looked like another person walking around, I approached carefully. It was about 2m big, very huge, dark haired (I think it was black or very darkbrown). It didn't make any noise and there was no particular smell.

I only saw his back side, I couldnt see his face clearly. It was moving saway from me, not running but still fast with great steps. I felt like paralysed, unable to move or to think clearly. My cam was turned off and still on picture mode, I quickly turned it on and made that snap (look at the picture).

After that snap I think another minute passed, 'it' was nearly disappeared in the far forest. I switched my cam to film-mode and tried to film it. I started to film 3 times because I needed to stop several times to follow it.

The whole thing is filmed with a far zoom. Because of that zoom its not filmed very straight, I tried to walk while filming and I didnt look through my cam because I prefered to watch that creature with my own eyes.

After the third time I filmed it, I couldnt follow anymore, too much trees, I couldnt see it anymore.

I tried to find any foodprints but the ground was too dry. I only have that one snapshot and 3 short video sections.
