REPORT FROM SANDY RIDGE NEAR COEBURN, VA.
The witness requested this be posted as anonymous
- Witness Report-
I do believe the sighting took place around the year 2000 in the summer or fall months so it's been awhile. Me and my girlfriend at the time (who became my wife then ex) was coming back from the late movie that we had watched in Coeburn, VA.
I don't recall what movie it was as we went frequently, but I do remember it was the late movie which started at 9 and ended around 11:30-12. We left Coeburn and was going across Sandy Ridge which is about 10 minutes or so from the movie theater. I estimate the time of the sighting was roughly between 11:50pm-12:20am.
It was a dark night out, and slightly foggy once we got to the top of Sandy Ridge. It was quiet in our vehicle, we weren't talking and in the distance in the headlights we saw a tall, dark, hairy, creature that walked up-right quickly from the left side of the road, crossed the full length of the road, then leaped across a ditch and a fence in one jump. I estimate the height of the "creature" to be between 6 and 7 feet tall.
We actually passed by where we saw it another couple of hundred feet before I said "Oh my God did you just see what I saw? At which point my girlfriend said "Oh yes I did!". We were almost speechless.
We then tried to analyze it by trying to figure out what it could have been but we were at a loss. There are several houses in the area that the sighting occurred. There is a little store that was there at the time near where the sighting occurred.
When the creature jumped across the ditch and fence, it was into a small field. I have told many people over the years about the sighting. I have always been skeptical of a Bigfoot creature, but this sighting most definitely made me feel there is something unexplained out there.
I have went by that area many times and have kicked myself for not going back that night and looking harder for evidence. I know exactly where the event happened, probably within 50 feet. It would be difficult for a grown man to leap across that fence and I would say impossible for a grown man in a Bigfoot suit to do it.

This report has a very good chance of being a bigfoot in my opinion. You got to think why would anyone be out in a suit that late at night running and jumping fences in front of cars. Thanks goes to Appalachian Bigfoot of KY and VA for sharing the report with us.
