Red Eyes / Stock Photo

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 a black panther with an almost “bull-dog” like face and red eyes. He said the creature had a yowl that sounded like “A-Yeeew”, thus the name. My dad said it may have been a panther that had been shot in the face, but one never knows.

Perhaps this is the same animal as the black panther thing someone else posted on the site.
