Region of origin: West Virginia, United States
Also known as “the White Thing,” the Sheepsquatch, so nicknamed for its shaggy white fur and horns, is a large creature spotted several times in the West Virginian wilderness since the mid-Nineties up until as recently as last year. It has been alternatively described as humanoid or bear-like, switching between bipedal and quadrupedal locomotion. Most sightings usually involved the creature investigating campers or stumbling across hikers and being startled rather than aggressive, retreating into the deeper woods, often accompanied by a terrible, loud screaming, though there have been the odd encounter where it turned aggressive or did a fair amount of damage to a campsite during its examination.
