Early morning backyard sighting by newspaper deliverer near Talcott

YEAR: 2001


MONTH: September

DATE: 5th

STATE: West Virginia

COUNTY: Summers County

LOCATION DETAILS: route 3 from Hinton to Talcott.


NEAREST ROAD: don't remember the road name.

OBSERVED: My son and I were delivering newspapers in the Talcott WV area. We were on a one lane road, I pulled into a driveway to deliver a paper, as I was putting it in the box, my son [23 years old] says look dad a gorilla. I turned quickly to look. It was walking in the yard of the home towards the woods. We watched it for about 30 seconds as it left our view. I told my son there are no gorillas in WV. Thats a bigfoot. It was about 7 feet tall with long arms, like a gorilla. It didn't seem to care about us at all. It just walked away. It was very hairy. We both got a real good look at it. We both got goose bumps. It was about 4 am. It was in Sept. around the 5th. in 2001. We looked every night in that area for the next 6 months, but never saw it again.




TIME AND CONDITIONS: 4 am dark outside, but my headlights were shining in that direction.

ENVIRONMENT: It was in a yard with woods around the property.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Pam Lovins:

I spoke with this witness at length. He said the animal's hair color was dark brown or black and was very long. Originally seen from approximately 15 feet. It moved away very casually, not ever turning to look at the witnesses in their truck. Deer are normally seen in great numbers in this area.
