Western North Carolina Sighting Timeline

This is something that I compiled a few years ago and thought I would share it. If you have any additional info that you feel may be useful then please feel free to contact me at or just add a comment.

DECEMBER 19, 2000: (NAME REMOVED) finds footprints in  the snow outside of her apartment complex on Stoney Mountain road.
DESCRIPTION: Footprints were "twice as large as witness' size 9 boots" and spaced about five feet apart.
AREA: Wooded.
APRIL 1983 3 a.m. : I-26 Five miles away from Stoney Mtn. Rd. sighting. "Creature" crosses road in front of car.
DESCRIPTION: Brown, shaggy creature with a very pointed head.
AREA: Wooded.

1940'S - PRESENT: Unusual sounds heard in the southern portion of Henderson county near the state line on Heatherly Heights road. Almost a yearly occurrance. Usually it can be heard mainly at night or early morning. The sound is best described as a loud "scream" that can be clearly heard throughout the valley below. Most recently sounds were heard outside a home on ***** road, only a couple of miles away from where the sounds were reported of a large type animal roaming through the front yard at night. This is still to be looked into and confirmed. However in the surrounding woods large footprints that measured 16 inches were found, as well as a small tree that was bent down and broken. The break was measured at around six feet from the ground. There was nothing in the immediate area that would have fallen and caused the break.
 There have been numerous other reports that included a woman coming home from work, who claimed she saw a large black thing "leap" across the road. A woman who said she could hear something very large by her bedroom window at night breathing. There was also a report of a man who had went to his outhouse one night, and while in the outhouse he had said that there was strange sounds coming from outside which scared him so bad that he stayed the night in the outhouse. The next morning his relatives had to "pry" his hands from the handrails to get him out. The exact date of the occurrence is unknown.
AREAS: All areas wooded. Reports were at various uncomfirmed times of year. Mainly Spring and Fall.
NOVEMBER 17, 1991: Near Black Mountain and highway 9. A young boy looks out of his bedroom window and can see a  silhouette of a "Strange figure" walking by the window
and estimated to be around 7 feet tall.
DESCRIPTION: 7 feet tall and swung it's arms like pendulums as it walked. The head was said to be the shape of a man with a mullet style haircut. The creature seemed to slouch a little.
WEATHER: Clear. Around dusk.
AREA: Wooded, steep terrain. Lots of vegetation.

SEPTEMBER 1986: Near Carter Mountain, Barnardsville. Report of a man driving up a mountain road. The road turned to dirt, and about 40 feet after leaving the pavement the driver saw what was initially thought to be a bear. The driver got closer and the creature showed no fear of the approaching car. The creature then stood up on it's hind legs.
DESCRIPTION: Looked like a man, had long dark hair hanging from it's arms and legs. It's head came to a point at the top of it's head. 6 1/2 - 7 1/2 feet tall and 500 lbs.
AREA: Wooded.
JULY 15, 1985 Off Highway 11 Near Marietta. 8:30 p.m. High pitched screams were heard for three or four hours. The screams would alternate from high pitched to low. A grapevine around 5 or 7 inches was snapped in two and broken off 8 or 9 feet off of the ground. Footprints were found about 9 - 10 inches long and 2 inches deep. A strong odor "like a goat" was also reported. There were 4 witnesses to this. And also there was an attempt to see what was making the noise. As they shined the light into the woods there was a reflection of red eyes staring back at them.
AREA: Wooded and farmland, with thick brush and a river nearby.
