Describe sighting in detail:
A large hairy bipedal creature crossed the road in front of my daughter and I while driving home. It only took 2 steps to completely cross the road.
It then disappeared down the bank into some trees.
I also heard strange howls and screams for several nights after that.
Update - It was 7 1/2 to 8 ft tall and dark brown.The sighting happened on hwy 773 about 1 1/2 mile from hwy 2. There is a large lake and cemetery close to where we saw it. I live less that 5 minutes from there. My daughter who is 21 now is still nervous to go outside at night by herself.
I found out that there have been several other sightings in Tippah county over the years that have been reported to the GCBFRO. One happened only about 5 miles from where I had my sighting and it was reported by 2 deputies.-End Report-
I have attempted to contact Robin in an effort to get more details about the appearance of the creature and will update if I get any other information.
