White Thing

White Thing

It was mid-January in Four States, West Virginia and I was walking through the woods. I heard something rustling in the brush about 100 yards away. I walked up a right-of-way to see what it was. I wish I‘d stayed home. As I topped the right-of-way, what appeared to be...
White Beast

White Beast

My husband and I were taking a drive one night down Route 35 going toward Winfield. We had just gotten to where there were no lights or houses around. I was looking out my window trying not to be scared of what I might see. Joe (my husband) had said...
Another Black Panther

Another Black Panther

I can confirm not only by myself but with about half the town of Richwood as well that black panthers do exist in WV. I saw one myself while camping on the south fork of the Cherry River. It was about 2:00 am and my dad and I had...
Unidentified Footprints

Unidentified Footprints on the Roof

While driving home one night in Glen Jean, WV, I noticed two shiny eyes in my headlights on the side of the road. As I approached closer, my headlights hit what I can only describe as a black fur covered ape-like animal. It was crouched over on the side...
Unearthly Beasts

Unearthly Beasts

I've not encountered any of the strange beasts I discuss herein, but I think their legends warrant further investigation. Beyond the realm of ghosts and outside the classification of man-apes, encounters with strange creatures have been reported across the Mountain State. These bear or dog-like creatures seem to belong to...
WV Wendigo Creature

WV Wendigo Creature

This may seem farfetched at best, but try to have an open mind. Based on some of my own experiences, a little research on the topic, and reading several stories here from the Cryptozoology section, I believe a Wendigo-like creature lives in the deep woods of West Virginia. Basic Info The...
Creatures Around My Home

Creatures Around My Home

The events took place in Dunbar, WV. I live in a 1930s home on a hill with the wooded area beyond the property, across the street a cemetery. I've seen deer pass by a lot and a coyote or two but nothing like this. Day One 7/21/18: Around 11:30 PM I encountered...
What Followed Me?

What Followed Me?

In the 1950's I often went to my relative's in Wirt County to visit on the week-ends. The procedure was to drop them a post-card early in the week saying I would take the Greyhound bus to the stop where they picked me up. I did exactly that one week...
What In The World Is It?

What In The World Is It?

One night back in 1999 I was at Chief Logan State Park all by myself, there was no one else up there. When I was getting ready to leave, I heard something scream, but it sounded like a very high pitch, a screech, but very intense. It sounded like no...
Sheepsquatch

Sheepsquatch

I grew up in Gallipolis, across the Ohio River from Point Pleasant. In high school I found an old scrapbook of my mother's with several dozen clippings on the Mothman: I was fascinated that something "neat" had happened so close to the sleepy little town I loved, and I...
The Red Eyes

The Red Eyes

Me and my friend was chopping down a bunch of woods by our house. We found a foot print on the ground I yelled "come over here Dylan" and he looked down and saw it. "What was it", he asked. "I don't know". We ran from the woods, because...
White Thing of Ragland

White Thing of Ragland

For a very long time people have told me about the "White Thing" of Ragland, WV, a small community outside of Delbarton, WV in Mingo county. Several trusted friends of mine have told of their encounters with the thing. One friend said it could run faster than anything he'd ever...
