"In August, 1962, my boyfriend and I were traveling from the north of England to visit relatives in Hampshire in the south," reports Carole. "We were approaching Winchester (this was before the motorway) and were coming toward a railway line with an embankment to the left. It was early evening around six o'clock when suddenly this creature, which was half man and half horse, a beautiful white body, ran across the road in front of our car. We stopped the car. We could not believe our eyes, but then suddenly it disappeared into the embankment. I must add my boyfriend and I are typical down-to-earth Yorkshire people, who would never have believed had we not seen it with our own eyes."
Seeing something like Bigfoot or even a sea monster is one thing, Carole, but seeing a mythical creature like a centaur (half man, half horse) is quite another. This is not to discount your report, however, but we must consider carefully the phenomena of such sightings. Was this a case of mistaken identity (a large deer, for instance)? A shared hallucination? I think it's safe to say there are no real centaurs, but was your sighting a tulpa -- a physical manifestation of the subconscious that might exist only temporarily? So then we have to raise the question: What is real and what is reality?
In any case, you're not alone, Carole. Here are some other sightings of bizarre and mythical creatures:
- Beautiful Banshee
- Pig Lady
- Primehook Swamp Creature
- Gremlin on the Dresser
- Goat Man Encounter
- Another Centaur Sighting
- Bird Man
