Your first name: Willie (last name on file)
Which county? Allen
Estimated date? October 20, 1990
Estimated time? 7:30pm
What city, or nearest city? Scottsville
Length of time the encounter lasted: 5 minutes
How many witnesses? Just me and two friends but I don’t know where their located at.
Please describe your encounter: We just were driving down through the countryside near a community called Perrytown. As we got to the edge of the bridge at a place known as house bluff I looked up on the Cliffside and it was horrible looking. Its eyes glowed red and stared directly at us, my two friends didn’t believe me until it jumped down into the creek and ran in front of the car and caused us to run off the road.
Describe the creature with detail: It was about 7 to 9 feet tall, brownish orange hair with glowing red eyes. I was 15 when I saw this creature and I have told very few here about it because most would accuse you of being on drugs or being insane.
Additional Info: It made a sound when it screamed that sounded like a woman screaming.
I contacted Willie C., who wishes to remain anonymous, in early July 2010 and found him to be sincere about his online submission to Kentuckybigfoot.com. Now 34 years-old, he told me he remembered that night “just like it was yesterday.” The incident took place a couple miles outside of Scottsville in southern Allen County back in 1990 when he was 15 years old. As he and two others were driving through the mountainous region near Perrytown at dusk on the evening of Oct. 20th, 1990, he happened to glance up at a cliff side and spied the creature. Incredibly, it then jumped down onto a ridge and into the creek and ran out over a small bridge in front of their vehicle. The driver, his cousin, was so startled that he ran off the road. Aside from the initial details of the report Willie was able to add that the object ran much faster than a man could, as fast as a deer, only on two legs. The scream it emitted as it ran was very loud and unsettling to the entire group, sounding just like a terrified woman screaming. The sight scared the hell out of them all. I was able to get a few more details than initially reported regarding the appearance of the creature. At its closest point it was only about 20 ft. away from the vehicle and its passengers which enabled them to get a pretty good look at the thing. Its face looked like a cross between an orangutan and a Neanderthal’s, Willie told me, with a flat nose like a gorilla’s. Its eyes did not actually glow, but were red-colored when the vehicle’s headlights hit them. Although huge, it was built like a man, with normally proportioned arms and legs. It had the hands of a man as well, but with long fingernails.
The area of Allen County is known in Fortean circles as being the home of a place called “Monkey Cave Hollow” named by the early settlers for the race of “monkeys” that lived in the area when the pioneers arrived. These strange “monkeys” reportedly foraged for food at night and lived in caves, with the last of them being hunted to extinction over 100 years ago. Willie described the area in which the incident took place as a heavily wooded, rocky bluff with at least one cave in the area. Did some of the “monkeys” survive the blazing guns of the early residents of Allen County? There is no doubt.
