COUNTY: Clark County
LOCATION DETAILS: (edited)
NEAREST TOWN: Enon, Ohio
NEAREST ROAD: Snider Rd
OBSERVED: Late Oct 2000, fall weather but jacket needed, about 1030-1100 pm, my wife and I were driving back home from her sister's house north of Donnelsville, driving south on Snider Rd. Just as I came over the small bridge over the drainage ditch headed south toward the RR tracks, I saw a tall (about 7-8ft), large fur covered biped, standing about 15 ft east of the roadway near the tree line as if waiting to cross the street after we passed. The fields are slightly lower than the roadway, and it's head was higher than mine in my old pickup that rides 6 ft high. It was dark in color, broad shoulders, no neck, fur covered head to toe. I didn't tell my wife until we were home because I did't want to scare her. It sent shivers up and down my neck, and actually I felt sort of funny like something was strange before I actually got to the bridge, you know like something is going to happen or someone is watching you when you are alone in the woods. I tried to look back through my mirrors but couldn't make out anything in the dark, even though there was a little moon-light.
ALSO NOTICED: It sent shivers up and down my neck, and actually I felt sort of funny like something was strange before I actually got to the bridge, you know like something is going to happen or someone is watching you when you are alone in the woods. It was very still, no noises or other vehicles, or anything.
OTHER WITNESSES: No other witnesses other than myself.
OTHER STORIES: I never realized that these were in other states of the US outside of the Northwest. I had heard of these sighting in mid Michigan, but not Ohio until I had seen one. A friend, a local naturalist and photographer, said "oh yeah, the Wildman of Enon" a legend of the area. I and friend had 3 other sightings also in Clark County. This was my second sighting in Clark County (reference my report from Sept 93 in Clark County).
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Late Oct 2000, fall weather but jacket needed, about 1030-1100 pm.
Some moon-light, no precipitation.
ENVIRONMENT: Along a wooded creek that runs into the Mud Run Creek and finally into the Mad River. The area is flat and agricultural surrounding the site. A ridge and Mud Run Creek parallel the ditch to the south, about 1/2-3/4 mile away.
