April 2019

My wife and I were driving around and we were on a back road out in Wytheville, Virginia on queens knob road. It was dark out, not too late but it was dark and as we turned a corner my wife and I saw something in the middle of the road. It was about 4 foot tall and COVERED in fur. It was NOT a dog or any 4-legged animal. It was on 2 legs and it saw our car and ran and jumped over the fence towards the left like it was nothing. It pumped its arms as it ran and then jumped over the fence without using any effort at all. It then proceeded to run through the field with the sheep and we lost sight of it. My wife and I both talked about what we saw and we both had no doubts in our minds.
