“Chippewa River Encounter” (Unedited) Time Stamps
This is Jay Bradley with Creepy Encounters. Following is the unedited version of the “Chippewa River Encounter” that occurred on August 12, 2019. It is early in the afternoon and my wife and I are fishing on the Chippewa River in Rusk County Wisconsin. The view you see here in this screenshot is the woodline along the eastern bank of the river. We were anchored about 60 feet away from the bank when all of a sudden a loud commotion erupted in the woods downstream from our position about thirty yards away. The red arrow points to the spot where this disturbing commotion occurred. It sounded like large limbs were being broken coupled with a loud thrashing sound. As the loud thrashing sound subsided there was a distinctive cry of a wild turkey in distress in that same general area. The entire episode only lasted about twenty seconds. Immediately after the disturbance the woods and the area near the boat became completely silent. I looked at my wife and told her “that in all the years I have been hunting and fishing I have never heard anything like that before in the outdoors”. That prompted me to grab my Iphone 7+ and begin shooting footage of the area where the sound emanated from near the river bank to see if I could catch something on camera. While I was shooting the footage all I could see were “small white spots that were appearing and then disappearing amongst the foliage along the river bank. I thought maybe I was seeing the tail and or the antlers of a white-tailed deer buck through the foliage and that possibly he was violently rubbing his rack on some saplings and making scrapes.You hear me raise that very question during the video. However, I knew in my gut that something very unusual had just occurred. Due to the distress call made by the turkey I made the assumption that it had been attacked by some kind of predator and I wanted to get a closer look at area where I believed that the strange commotion had occurred. So I eased myself out of the boat and began to wade in the knee deep water of the Chip to the shore to get a closer look at the area where the attack had taken place. As I walked up the bank I was running through my mind the type of predators that could take down what I assumed to be an adult turkey in this part of northwestern Wisconsin. The only apex predators that came to mind were a wolf, black bear, bobcat, and cougar. Cougar sightings had been confirmed in the area over the past several years and even with that in mind I believed it was very unlikely that any of these predators would attack me. My wife was not thrilled with this decision, but I was bound and determined to find out what caused the attack. Little did I know that I was going to investigate a spot where a possible predator that was not made of bone, fur, or flesh had attacked a wild turkey. I make that unusual statement based on what I saw when I reviewed the footage later that night. The footage revealed that there was a lot of strange activity occurring in or around the spot where I believe the attack had taken place.There were a series of luminous white or silver-colored objects a few inches in diameter that were airborne and traveling at a very high rate of speed. These small luminous objects were at times appearing to enter and leave a boiling or flashing “luminous mass” on the forest floor. The red arrow denotes the spot where this “luminous mass” was located a few feet inside the woodline. These same objects appeared to possibly enter and leave a stationary luminous object elevated in the forest canopy above the same spot where the turkey was attacked. The red arrow in the far upper right of frame shows where this stationary luminous light was located. Also, you will notice at certain times a luminous entity appears to move horizontally through the foliage like it was some sort of living luminous liquid. There is a lot going on in the following video. Several of the objects that you see were moving so quickly during this original unedited version that I was not able to detect them until I slowed down the video and watched it frame by frame. I would suggest that you do the same and watch it frame by frame to see these fast moving luminous objects. I have included time stamps in the “Read More” section and blog on my website at creepyencounters.com to help point out some of the anomalous observations I have in the video. You may see things that I have missed. Feel free and email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments or questions about the “Chippewa River Encounter”.
0:01 A strange light starts flashing on the left side of frame in the 9:00 position as it
enters what I now call the “periscope”.
0:03 A circle of light enters the “periscope”.
0:04 What I call a “dash orb” descends from the 1:00 position upper right of frame.
It makes a sharp left hand turn at a forty-five degree angle and with blinding
speed and disappears into the undergrowth.
0:04 As soon as the “dash orb” enters the undergrowth there is an immediate
response from what I now call the “luminous mass”. This mass appears to boil
and flash at the same time that the “dash orb” entered the area where the
“luminous mass” is located.
0:06 A thin leafless sapling on the forest floor behind and to the right of the
“luminous mass” starts bouncing up and down near the spot where the wild
turkey was attacked.
0:06 If you look very closely as the sapling springs up to its original vertical position
you will notice a brief flash in the foliage under the branch. This brief flash then
appears to quickly travel back towards the luminous mass.
0:08 Brief flashes occur in the area of the luminous mass.
0:11 Luminous mass continues to flash.
0:12 It is very difficult to see because it happens so quickly, but I believe from the 2:00
position in the upper right of frame a small dash orb appears and enters the
luminous mass at a high rate of speed.
0:13 Upper left of frame an object (might be your classic “rod”) shoots across the
screen is less then half a second and disappears near the base of the trunk of the
tree that has a scar on it at the far right of frame.
0:14 Luminous mass boils and flashes again. It might be in response to the arrival of
0:16 Far left of frame at the 9:00 position. Another rod or dash orb (this also could
be an insect) at a high rate of speed travels in an arc towards the upper left
corner of frame.
0:18 Luminous mass flashes again.
0:21 More flashes from the “luminous mass”.
0:23 Luminous mass continues to flash.
0:25 Flashing appears a few feet to the left of the luminous mass.
0:36 More flashing from the luminous mass.
0:40 Light flashes to the left of the “periscope”.
0:44 At the 9:00 position another dash orb at a high rate of speed travels towards
the upper right corner of frame.
0:50 “Living Luminous Liquid” “creeps” from left to right and moves in the direction
of the periscope.
0:51 The Living Luminous Liquid travels from left to right and then enters the
periscope. It appears to rotate or spin around the periscope in a clockwise
manner and disappears.
0:59 Dash orb exits the luminous mass to the right at a 45 degree angle and
disappears into the forest at the 2:00 position.
1:02 Upper right corner of frame a “Stationary Luminous Object” comes into view as
I pan the iPhone to the right.
1:03 Another dash orb exits the luminous mass and travels in the direction of the
“stationary luminous object”.
1:09 A slower moving dash orb enters the frame at the upper right of frame and
moves through the forest leaving the scene at time stamp 1:10.
1:15 As I pan the iPhone to the right several other stationary luminous objects in the
canopy appear to come into view. Unfortunately, the footage is blurry due to the
quick panning of the IPhone and it is difficult to determine their number.
1:18 Another dash orb exits the luminous mass to the right at a low angle and is
easily seen crossing the trunk of a tree in the background.
1:25 Video Ends
This concludes the unedited video of the Chippewa River Encounter. As I mentioned earlier, that after I shot the video I jumped out of the boat and waded to the bank to get a closer look at the location where I heard the distress cry from the turkey. I walked down the edge of the tree line and back into the woods where I heard the commotion and not to my surprise I found an area where the ferns and other vegetation had been completely flattened down. The disturbed area did indeed contain feathers from a wild turkey. This screenshot shows you some of the feathers I found on the forest floor in the disturbed location where it appears the attack occurred. The feathers were from various parts of the turkey. There was no blood of any kind in or around the scene of the attack. I spent several minutes combing the area to see if I could find the turkey or any sign of it having been dragged off into the woods but found nothing. I had the uneasy feeling that I was being watched, but brushed that off as my imagination getting the best of me knowing that a predator of some size only minutes before may have attacked a wild turkey and could be extremely close to me and hiding in the dense vegetation on the forest floor. However, I did not know at the time that some kind of strange combination of luminous objects or entities may have been responsible for the attack. As I mentioned in the introduction I did not recognize these anomalous predatory objects for what they were at the time I shot the video. It was only when I reviewed the footage later that night that I saw these bizarre and strangely behaving objects in and around the site of the attack.
The next video that I will put on Creepy Encounters will be the video of my walk a long the river bank to the site where I first discovered the aftermath of the attack. There were also luminous objects in the woods that I did not notice during that short walk along the tree line to the spot where I discovered the flattened vegetation littered with wild turkey feathers. It is hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that there may be a colony of luminous predatory objects that haunt the forests of northwestern Wisconsin that are capable of killing a wild turkey. If so, could they kill and make disappear larger prey like a human being? It might be considerable stretch of the imagination but it makes makes me wonder if there is a possible connection between these luminous entities and the documented disappearances of some of the people in our state and national forests. Something to think about…
