Texarkana -- Bobby Ford, 25, who said he was attacked by a "large, hairy creature" at his some was treated at a hospital here early Sunday for scratches and shock.
Ford, of Fouke, a small Miller County community 15 miles southeast of here told county officials and Fouke County Ernest Walraven that about midnight Saturday a creature poked its paw through a hole in the window.
Ford said he and three other adults chased what they describe as a large, hairy animal into a wooded area behind the house.
Later, Fred said something kicked in the back door and they again saw the creature behind the house. As he was returning to the house after chasing the creature, he said the animal knocked him down. Ford said he escaped and ran into the house.
Walraven and county officials searched the area Sunday and said they found several large tracks.
Walraven said that a similar creature was reported at nearby Jonesville five or six years ago.
Ford, who had lived in the house less than a week, refused to stay at the house Sunday night. He said he and his family were going to move.
