Devil Dog.

This story is my fathers not my own. I’m from a very rural area in West Virginia , I today own this farm were this took place¬† . It was mid January early 70s my father was around 12 or 13 years old .

There was around 2 feet of snow on the ground . My grandmother was washing dishes around 9;30 pm as she was washing dishes something caught her eye out of the window , witch looks out towards the barn and a road that comes down from the fields and woods ,

They had one of those dusk till dawn lights on a pole at the end of this road. My Father , My Grandfather and 2 uncles were in the living room when they heard( in my fathers words )my grandmother let out the most terrifying scream he has ever heard to this day . All four of them jumped up and ran into the kitchen to see what was wrong ,

My grandmother couldn’t speak you could see the sheer terror in her face she was frozen in place with fear .

They kept asking and pleading with her to tell them what was wrong .

After a good 20 seconds she pointed towards the window. They went to the window and looked out towards that old road and under the light stood this thing on all fours like a dog but much larger and it was not a dog that’s when it turned its head and looked directly at them in the window it had five to six inch fangs long pointy ears and the worst part bright glowing red eyes.

It just stood there glaring at them. That’s when my grandfather told my Uncle to go get his Winchester 30/30 when my uncle returned with the old rifle my grandfather slid the kitchen window open chambered a round took aim and click the rifle wouldn’t fire he chambered another round and again the rifle went click ,

Never has this rifle ever failed to fire.

Then this thing let out the most haunting howl/ growl he has ever heard the kind that makes the hairs stand on end. It then turned and went back up that old road but they noticed it walked on top of the snow never sank down into it. They went outside and looked for tracks in the snow and could not find one trace of it nothing could be found.

There was a lot of livestock killed in the area that year . I have heard this same story over the years from my Grandfather and both uncles and all at different times to hear them tell this story it sends chills down your spine. We are all avid hunters and have never seen or heard anything after this night.

Also the rifle fired fine after this night and still does to this day. Please remember this whole ordeal was over in around a minute .

That’s not a coyote

One night when I went to visit my parents in Sacramento something that will haunt me forever happened. My parents live in the middle of the forest with two neighbors, I had visited them and was driving along the trail to the main road with my sister when my car broke down. We called a tow truck and our dad to come pick us up, the trail takes about 10 minutes to drive along and we had about seven minutes to go.

We were talking when all of a sudden we went over a bump in the road, like we had hit an animal or something, My sister,dad and I got out of the car to see a coyote or something when all of a sudden it gets up, that was NOT a coyote it’s legs were about 5’0 long, we got into that car and started to drive obviously terrified, my sister who was in the backseat ¬†suddenly shouts at my dad “D-dad D-d-drive FAST” I looked into the rear view mirror to see the thing was walking on its hind legs into the trees.

We turned back to go to the house where my mom and little brother were sleeping and didn’t leave for two days, when we told our little brother (he’s ten by the way) he said “Is that not normal I thought all simes did that” I have never been so scared in my life

Creature on the bridge

This story is from my Mother, she told me this a few years ago.

When I was about 12, my family and I went out camping to a place about 3 hours from our home. I do not remember the name of the place, but I do remember what it looked like. To your left, you see a stream and then thick trees. Straight ahead, you see a bridge standing about 7 meters off the ground, 500 meters away. To your right, it is more trees and then a small road we took here. This bridge was abandoned, nobody came here.

We set up our tents and began making the campfire. There was me, my parents, my 3 sisters and 3 brothers. About 4 tents in total, if I recall. The first day went okay. All that really happened was me feeling like I was being watched constantly, by something in the forest. I shrugged it off as no one would believe me.

The second day was when it happened, we all got up and our of our tents to start a fire. My dad, a strong man nobody dared to mess with was with us. My sister, spotted something on the bridge, it was horrifying.

A big, tall, furry, dark haired creature was on the bridge staring down at us. It was about 9-10 feet tall with it’s arms hanging below it’s knees. It stood there staring at us. My dad, I have never seen him so scared in my life. I remember us packing our shit and getting the hell out of there as fast as we could. Before it turned to walk away, it let out the most blood curdling scream I have ever heard. It was a mix of a dog and a human, if that makes sense. It then ran into the forest off the bridge.

I will never forget the way it looked down at us, with it’s big yellow eyes.
