Sighting Date:Sept. 1989
Location:On Appomattox river, not far from Petersburg
Physical Traits: 6 1/2 feet tall. Foul Smelled like sulphur. Light redish hair. Not as bulky as some sightings I have read about.
Activity:We were catfishing in a small jon boat at around dusk. We set out from a friends house not far from Fort Clifton just after dinner. A couple miles up river we started fishing. It was august and very hot. We sat quietly waiting for fish to bite. We heard something approaching the river about 50 yds ahead of us. That sounded human. Then out of nowhere on the side of the river away from where we heard the sounds. A large hairy creature entered the water and swam across to the side we heard the noise coming from. It never looked at us. It swam under water most of the way. It emerged and stepped out of the water and into the woods in less than three steps. No vocalizations heard other than what sounded like a bi-ped
Setting:September, 1989-about 7:30 pm
