Was at a wedding and phone was off. When I did turn it on all my cell phone info was wiped clean and pictures changed on background.|

I have worked in Mercersburg for about twenty years now. I work at a metal fabrication company. Most of my job has been in management, but there have been times I have had to come back to the shop late night just to be sure it was shut down and things were done and ready for shipment the next day.
Back in 2016 in the middle of October we had a big shipment that needed to go out. After midnight that evening after second shift had left for the day I was there just to check things out. I walked back to the back dock doors. At first I wasn't sure what I had heard and kind of just shrugged it off. It was a low scratching noise. I just thought it was a stray cat or coon outside.
However, the next time it was a loud bang and a deep growl. It was nothing I had heard of. I almost wet my pants. I wanted to get out of there, but I thought whatever was outside I didn't want to face, so for a few moments I just stood still hoping whatever it was would just leave. Then I thought somehow I had to make it to my car but not out the back. I headed for the front entrance. Just as I thought I was going to make it, something appeared to come through the door I was heading out of. I don't mean it opened the door. No, it came right through. It was a ghost.
I have never heard of one like this even though I have never seen a ghost on my own. It wasn't like anything I have ever heard of. My best description is a werewolf. It stood on two hind legs with long claws and teeth that were sharp, but there was something about it that wasn't quite wolf. A bear doesn't quite do it either; it was more rat-like in its features. I am more scared than I have ever been. It felt like my heart would pound out of my chest and hit the floor. I could do nothing. Then it leaped right at me.
I thought for sure I was dead. I know I screamed as loud as I could, but there was no saving me. Then to my surprise I felt nothing. I opened my eyes and saw nothing. Without thinking I ran to my car and left. Still to this day I do not know what it was or how I got away, but one thing I do know I never hope to see whatever it was again. I never go to the shop alone now, and I never go after dark. I trust second shift to do their job.
