OBSERVED: Hairy manlike creature was after my great-grandfather's horse. Horse was trying to pull away from tree he was tied to. My great-grandfather heard commotion, approached his horse, observed this creature which then ran into the brush. He also stated he had seen something similar on top Pilot Mountain (knob) a few years before. He told me at the time, this "thing" was taller and heavier than he was. My great-grandfather was 6'2' and 190 LBS.

ENVIRONMENT: I have been near this area and to the summit of Whiteoak Mountain. This is a very wooded, brushy country, difficult to traverse. Mostly Southern Pine with numerous creeks and bottoms. Virtually no people reside in this area.
