In the early morning hours of December 1st, 1997, I was hunting with my son when I heard some weird sounds coming from a nearby gully. The sounds observed were similar to that of a woman screaming, followed by a strange sort of chatter, as if someone were playing...

The Hello Thing

The Hello Thing

This is the same White Beast that others have talked. It screams like a woman and has been known to hurt people. This creature will mostly warn you when there is going to be a death, but sometimes I think it gets angry with people! One incident where this...
Strange Creature In Pt. Pleasant

A few years ago two friends and I were returning from a trip to Huntington, WV and decided to drive back to our home in Charleston by going through Point Pleasant. About an hour into our trip it started snowing pretty heavily, so I slowed down to be careful...
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...

I was traveling early one morning in January, in snowy conditions, when I spotted a large, upright, dark-colored creature just off Rt.55. Very tall, fuzzy looking, with primate features, similar to an ape. The creature stepped into the road, causing me to swerve to avoid colliding with the beast....
What Followed Me?

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...
The Picnic

The Picnic

Alongside the New River near Fayetteville an old picnic table is rotting, becoming overgrown with moss and weeds. You can barely still see it, even if you wanted to. Even if you wanted to enjoy an outdoor meal with your family on a fine August day. You might have...
We Both Saw It

We Both Saw It

I live in a place that would not even be considered a dot on a map except for the fact that we have a State Forest there. Cabwaylingo, which stands for all the counties surrounding it, Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln, and Mingo, is a rather secluded park, full of wildlife. I...
