Please describe your encounter:

” I was driving down Bridge Hollow road which is a shortcut I take to get from the Barren River Lake area to my house. I was driving slowly because it was night on a one-lane road, as I topped a small hill; this huge animal ran down an embankment on the right side of the road and crossed in front of me. It turned to look at the car and struck out across a creek bottom on the left side of the road. I have also heard strange wailing noises at other times driving through the same area at night.”

Describe the creature with detail:

“It stood around 7 to 8 feet tall with long mangy hair all over its body it was definitely male because as it turned to look at my car I could see a protrusion in the genital area. Every other description I have read makes this creature out to be very aggressive. I don’t think that is the case, when the animal turned and looked at me the only emotion I saw in his eyes was peace. It reminded me of the movie Harry and the Henderson’s. A very intelligent and humanlike creature with feelings and emotions, perhaps even thought.”

Additional Info: “Very calm, it did not get excited or make any sound on the night I saw it but I think I have heard it howl on a few other occasions.”
