Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
Two of my friends and myself went fishing near the Catawba River one afternoon.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
We kept hearing some kind of rustling sound in the bushes, but we assumed it was a possum or anraccoon. As we were fixing to leave, I saw what looked like a large figure standing about 30 yards fromnus pearing out from around a tree. As I alerted my friends it began running into the woods. At that pointnit ran into a clearing and I could see that it's whole body was covered in hair. We ran after it, not withnthe intentions of really catching it, but more to try and see what it was. By that point it had disappearedninto the thick woods, but we could still hear the sounds of branches breaking in the distance.
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was towards the end of the summer. The weather was humid and overcast.
Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
Not in any of the papers. I did hear a story at my work that someone else claimed to see something innthat area as well.
Additional comments
Not too many people really take this story serious or think we were just confused by what we saw. Inknow what we saw. It's still hard for me to believe it even now, three years later.
