Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In 2005, somebody wrote on a forum in Hispanic language that his grandfather had seen a satyr one Sunday of August 1955 a 40 kilometers from Tlahualilo, state of Durango, Mexico. The grandfather and other men who worked for the Carthagena ranch were traveling on horses and were close to a crossroads near the Huaca hill.

They saw something in the heathers running as fast as a horse; which puzzled and alarmed them. The thing jumped the wire fences in one jump at less than some 100 meters from the men. It is described as of 1.50 meters, with legs similar to that of the goats, horns on the head, and an abundant beard.

Seeing that, one of the men fell from his horse and lost consciousness. The other men thus stopped, and during this time the creature fled out of their sight in the heathers. The grandfather was certain what they saw was the devil.

My grandfather saw a Satyre in his youth


July 24 2005

Hello I know that this sounds strange but according to what he told me when he was still alive, he would have seen a running devil, my grandfather lived in Tlahualilo a community of Durango Mexico they worked on a ranch called cartagena 40 km from there, the road was in terraces and crossed all the mountain and some hills, they thus went and came by horse each weekend thus they worked all the week.

It thus results that during year 55 precisely in August they returned to cartagena one Sunday in the afternoon and close to the crossing of the hill of the huaca, they saw something between the heathers that run as fast as a horse, this perplexed them and they were alarmed, saying that it jumped the wire fences in one jump, with less few 100 meters from where they were and they then saw it with more detail it was 1.50 meters and stood on legs similar to that of the goats and something in the head similar to horns, it had an abundant beard, when on of the men saw it he fell from the horse and lost consciousness, whereas during this time the creature would run as fast as a horse, thus they stopped and when they looked again at the running devil it was lost in the heathers.

after having analyzed all the story in the report description coincides with that of a fauna or a satyr of Greek mythology, but my grandfather insisted that it was the devil.

Well that's it, bye, there are many places which we do not know yet, where creatures could live or lived that we think exist only in imaginations


Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Tlahualilo, Durango, Mexico, in August 1955, in the afternoon, several laborers were returning to their ranch on horseback and as they neared a cross roads near Huaca Mountain noticed a strange figure moving rapidly among the nearby brush, the figure was moving as fast as a horse but the terrified witnesses noticed that it was clearly not a horse. The figure jumped a barbwire fence about 100meters from the witnesses and at this point the witnesses were able to see it in more detail. They described it as about 1.50m in height, long goat-like legs, on its head it had two horn-like protrusions, and its face was covered with thick beard. One of the men suffered a nervous shock and fell from his horse. The bizarre satyr-like creature was quickly lost from sight among the brush.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is http://www.planetaoculto.com and that he did the translation.

Points to consider:

This uncheckable second hand story found on a web forum devoted to the occult in 2005 obviously does not offer any element of credibility nor any real relation with the question of UFO occupants.
