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...
Another White Beast Encounter

Another White Beast Encounter

I've had two encounters with The White Beast. Both occurred around or near my best friend's house in New Cumberland, West Virginia. I used to spend more time there than at my own home. His dad owned about three acres of land, but only about three-quarters of an acre...
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...
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 Spotted Again

Demon Creature Spotted Again

On or about November 23rd the year I cannot remember. My cousin and I were at a deer camp in Webster County on Cranberry ridge, we were well off the main roads probably 5 miles into the mountains where a 4X4 is needed to go to the camp. Well...
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...

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...
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...
Mothman

Mothman

"Mothman" is perhaps one of the strangest creatures to ever grace the annals of weirdness in West Virginia, or even in all of America for that matter. Even though this mysterious and unsolved case has nothing to do with ghosts... it would be remiss of me not to include...

Kyawiley Wildthing

My Uncle Tony told me this story right before I left for basic training in 2008. In Genoa, West Virginia in Wayne County; my family owns a small farm. We only have a single cabin on the grounds, and it's used for recreational purposes only. I've grown up hunting...
