County: Louisa County
Sighting Date:
Location:Louisa County, 10 miles or so southwest of Gordonsville
Physical Traits: something large and mad
Activity:This was in 1972 in the woods surrounding my fathers property sothwest of Gordonsville. I was 12 years old and was "exploring" in the woods with a friend as boys of that age often do. We heard an audible groa//crying sound that wailed from somewhere in front of in the nearby woods. We abruptly stopped, reheard this bellowing sound and then quickly started to retreat towards my fathers property. Whatever was now behind us continued pursuing us for approximatly 1100 yards or so. every so often making that horrible groan, breaking tree branches as it seemed to be right on our trail behind us. It eventually stopped its pursuit as we returned to the safety of familiar ground. We did not know what it was behind us but it was obviosly big as it lumbered through the woods "yelling" at us. I do not know if this was a bigfoot but it was certaintly an unknown since we had never heard any local animals making that sound.
Witnesses: Stuart Shemp
