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...
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...

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...

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...

Wetzel Co Bigfoot?

Wetzel Co Bigfoot?

This happened to me personally sometime during the summer of 2006, possibly 2007, and up until reading a few stories of Bigfoot encounters on here never realized how lucky I might have been. This takes place in a relatively secluded section of Wetzel County. I had recently lost my vehicle...
