Just got in a report, that I'm assuming has never been reported until now, of some howls from Letcher county Kentucky. This is an area that is not very far from me.

Of course Letcher county has a lot of forest area and is adjacent to Harlan county. It is idea habitat for a creature such as Bigfoot.

Over the years I have taken in numerous Bigfoot reports from Letcher county and have, in times past, spent some time in that area of Kentucky.

Here is the report:
- Start Report -

Name: Chris ******

County: Letcher

Date of Sighting: May 2018

Time of Day: 2am

Length of Sighting: 20-25 seconds

How many Witnesses: 2

Any Photos/Videos: No

Describe sighting in detail: 

This is an audible report seeing how we heard something strange but never saw what made the sounds.

I'm a sane male in my 40s as is my cousin who I had this experience with.  It was sometime in May 2018 in the area of Letcher County called Thornton.  My cousin lives on a small side road the runs parallel to the main Thornton road.  His home faces a hillside approx 50 yards from his front door that is across the small side road, a creek then the main road.

There is a smaller Hill behind his home that starts to incline about 20 feet from the back door.  Both are wooded heavily.  We were standing on his front porch smoking cigarettes at about 2am.  His family was asleep and the two of us had been sitting watching TV.  It was completely silent outside.  No cars, no dogs etc.

While talking we heard a very loud yell is the best I can describe it.  It sounded like it was right next to us it was that loud. It lasted about 5-6 seconds. I asked him did you hear that and he said did you leave the TV on and I said no.  At that point, about 10 secs after the yell, we heard a second yell but this second one came from a greater distance away.  The first sounded like it was right behind the house. The second one, if you were standing at the front door with your back to the door, sounded like it came from our 1-2 o'clock.  It sounded exactly like the first yell just further away.

He has lived there for close to 20 years and never heard anything like that before or since.  We're pretty logical people and we started running what could it be thru our minds. We got our phone out and started listening to YouTube videos of different animal sounds that could be in the area. We listened to a long list of things including owls, elk, deer, fox, bobcat, mountain lion, coyote etc..just to explain to you we didn't go straight to Bigfoot.

We couldn't find anything remotely close.
We then went to Bigfoot yells on YouTube but nothing was quiet right, they were closer but just not 100%.  That was until we heard what people call "the Ohio yell" I believe is what it was titled.  I am here telling you that two grown men heard that exact yell from two different directions on Thornton that night.  I'll go to my grave swearing that the "Ohio yell" is 100% the exact same yell.  Not any of the other yells said to be Bigfoot I heard but that yell...is a perfect match.

What really freaked us out was the closeness of the first one. It sounded like it could have been just in the back yard it was that loud. Then to know there were two of them yelling to each other.
I know before we walked back into the house I grabbed an axe off of the porch and we went and double checked that all doors & windows were locked.  That's the story.  We both to this day say we heard the Ohio yell..twice.  Thanks for just letting me tell somebody.

- End Report -

First a big thanks to Chris for telling us his story. We depend on people, like Chris, telling us what they have seen and heard to build up our data.

With that said , I think it is very important to let everyone heard the Ohio Howls.

Now, what is interesting is that we have taken in numerous reports from Letcher county.
Here is just a few of them.
