YEAR: 2020

SEASON: Summer


DATE: 18

STATE: North Carolina

COUNTY: Montgomery County

LOCATION DETAILS: Appx. 1 to 1 1/2 miles north of Mt. Gilead NC heading toward Uwharrie National Forest.



OBSERVED: We were headed to Uwharrie National Forest in North Carolina for a day trip on 6/18/20 and was on Hwy 109N appx.1 to 1 1/2 miles north of Mt.Gilead. Were parallel to Railroad tracks on the right, woods on the left. I was focused on the road. It appeared appx 200 ft. in front of the car. I didnít see it come out of the woods but saw it right before it crossed the road in two bounds. It was large, maybe 8 ft., covered in black hair or fur. There was a difference in color in the face and hands. They were lighter in color. Once it crossed the road, it headed toward the railroad tracks and was gone by the time I got there. This all happened within a span of five to six seconds.


OTHER WITNESSES: My husband was driving but was looking in his left side mirror at a car behind us.

OTHER STORIES: No. Only in nearby Uwharrie National Forest


ENVIRONMENT: Sunny day. Railroad tracks on right. Forest on the left. Didnít notice any homes in the immediate area.
