What The Heck Was That?

What The Heck Was That?

Every year my boyfriend Tad goes squirrel hunting the first few days of the season in Ritchie County. I always meet him there for the weekend. His best friend Joe had a farm on top of Oil Ridge. Joe has passed on, but his son still allows Tad 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...
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...

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...

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...

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...
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...
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...
The Greenbrier County Monster

The Greenbrier County Monster

I have never seen the Greenbrier County monster, but my father, brothers, and many other hunters have all seen "something". My family and I are avid rabbit hunters, and as are many close friends of the family. One January day in 1998, my father and two brothers went hunting with...
