Sheepsquatch

My dad told me a story about a critter his grandfather "Doc" Carpenter encountered once while hunting in the woods surrounding Erbacon, WV which is in Webster County. He said he was stalking either turkey or deer when he realized he was being stalked by a creature that resembled...
Bigfoot Sighting

Bigfoot Sighting

In the summer of 1965, when I was 15 years old, 2 friends and I saw what may have been a Bigfoot. We were spotlighting for whitetail deer near Deer Run, a few miles from Franklin, WV. Back then it was legal to spotlight deer, as long as you...
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...

It was starting to get dark and I was fishing at Cabwaylingo Park. I decided to stay a little while longer even though my friends left. As I cast my line into the water I felt something blow my hat. I thought the wind had picked up but as...

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...
Demon Creature

Demon Creature

My brother and my father have seen a creature in the counties to the south of Charleston, which is best described as a "demon creature". I have never seen it, and I was having trouble believing the stories until I saw a story on The Discovery Channel about a...
