I grew up in Coopers Creek in Kanawha County, WV. I lived up a holler on top of a hill. I was in my late teens when this occurred. I am now 47. One night about 2 am, I heard a very loud screeching sound. It woke me up out of...
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...

Black Panther?

Black Panther?

I do not know if this is considered a "strange creature", but to me it was! It was a "black panther" type animal. It was the middle of summer, not sure the year, maybe 1988/89, when we had the terrible dry spell. It just would not rain, fires were...

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...

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...

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...
