Describe what happened with as many details as possible
This is a recount of a cryptid that occurred on the morning of June 3rd, 2018 at around 1:20 a.m. approximately.

To begin, I need to explain that I am a cab dispatcher and the sighting happened to a passenger that was being driven home by one of my drivers. They were going from Johnson City, Tennessee, where we are based, to the customer’s home in Elizabethton. My driver did not see the cryptid in question due to him being distracted by the car directly in front of him swerving to avoid it.

The female passenger in his cab asked upon passing the spot where the car had swerved if my driver had seen “it”. When he told her he had not, she described the creature as something about 2 feet tall, running at a high rate of speed across the road on only its hind legs, and had the overall body shape of a Kangaroo. She said the creature was running towards the woods.

To the best of my knowledge and research, this is the first sighting of anything like this in or around this area of Tennessee. There have, however, been other sightings of other cryptids ranging from the Birdman of Hampton to the Tennessee Wildman, and even several possible Sasquatch sightings, including a possible winged Bigfoot encounter.

What did it look like? Describe physical features of what you saw
About 2 feet tall, running at a high rate of speed across the road on only its hind legs and had the overall body shape of a Kangaroo, as described by a third person.

Have you had a sighting before?

    The description of this thing is vague, it was two feet tall, looked kangaroo-ish I don’t know what the hell it could be Maybe some kind of reptilian You know at first when I read this I thought maybe it WAS a kangaroo but then the guy said it RAN… weird

    This is the same person that submitted the story above, the same drive that had the encounter earlier had another with the same type of creature only this time he was not distracted and actually saw the creature. He said it was a medium brown color and was moving again on its hind legs.
