Recent Bigfoot Sighting in West Virginia!

How appropriate that– just in time for Thanksgiving– there’s a recent Bigfoot sighting in West Virginia from the Cranberry Wilderness! That’s right, there’s a enigmatic, geographically, topographically, climactically unique Post Ice Age region in Appalachia called The Cranberry Wilderness.

bogSee where this is going? So How ’bout a little cranberry with your Bigfoot?  Forget the turkey, how about a little Bigfoot in your Cranberry?

moss creatureObsession with the unknown can no longer be considered just a “Cryptozoology Thing”: It’s innate in all of us. As humans, we’re all drawn to stories of the supernatural, tales of monster-like creatures that may or may not exist, and we possess a fundamental curiosity about just what may be out there we’ve yet to discover.  As our world becomes increasingly smaller thanks to technological advances and a greater global community, it seems highly plausible that we will one day discover the answers to questions about creatures such as the loch ness, monsterbigfoot,  chupacabras, & The Mothmanchupacabra loch_ness_monster mothman ,  to name but a few.  Admittedly, sightings of Bigfoot have always piqued my interest.  I’ll be the first to watch documentary about the illusive ape, no matter how cheesy. Hell, I even made a  movie about it! Wanna see it? Here it goes…


Recent reports of DNA evidence of bigfoot  and continued photographic evidence of Sasquatch Sightings have continued to crop up, most recently in reports from the Cranberry Wilderness section of West Virginia.  While sightings are more commonly reported in the Pacific Northwest, along with encounters of a close cousin, the Skunk Ape, this area of Appalachia has seen its share of unusual phenomena, and it may just be that Sasquatch Stomps Here.


 The Cranberry Glades  are located in southern West Virginia and are a 750-acre grouping of peat bogs resembling some

The land is highly acidic and supports plants commonly found at higher latitudes, including cranberries, skunk cabbage, and two carnivorous plants (purple pitcher plant, sundew).  The peculiarity of this area is the nature of environment … think bogs, peat moss, layer upon layer of decayed matter and limestone.  Why?  During the last ice age, glaciers covered most of this area before retreating during a warming cycle, exposing never-before-seen, remarkably preserved remains of ice age human beings who roamed the earth before the time of Christ.



Bigfoot Sightings in Appalachia are hundreds of years old.  And as they say, where there’s smoke…you’re gonna find a fire.  In fact, during WWII, the Cranberry Glades were home to a very low security prison that housed political objectors and moonshiners.  It closed shortly after WWII, and even then rumors circulated that no prisoner would dare try to escape into the surrounding Cranberry Wilderness, out of the fear that “Bigfoot” would deliver a fate worse than incarceration.


Getting back to our story, however, many prisoners and guards reported hearing strange screams in the night coming from what was often referred to as the “haunted forests” surrounding the prison. The claims, even back then, that Sasquatch inhabited the area were written off as hoaxes or wandering minds, but something was wandering, and not just minds.haunted forest

As tourism began to replace coal mining in the mountain state as the number one form of industry, and more and more tourists visited the area, more Bigfoot sightings were being reported.  So many, in fact, that it prompted the Bigfoot Research Organization, or BFO, the largest organization dedicated to Bigfoot research in the world, to visit the area and conduct their own investigation.

According to their findings, there are indeed populations of North American Sasquatch residing in the Cranberry Wilderness section of West Virginia.  During their expedition, sounds were heard each day along with sasquatches sighted on a trail along the Greenbriar River.  Researchers reported that the sasquatches attempted to keep them “herded” together, by skillfully throwing large rocks in the paths of those who tried to separate and move away from the group. After two hours the activity ceased.

So this Thanksgiving, as you enjoy a little cranberry on your Turkey, don’t forget who may live and walk among those cranberries!  America’s favorite obsession: Bigfoot.

    Bubba–this is so cool, both my parent’s families are from Webster County, West Va., a little, tiny town called Camden on Gauley, which is on the Gauley River. I will have to ask my folks if there were ever any mysterious noises or folklore about sasquatch “doins” in the area! Happy Thanksgiving–hope you are safe up in your cabin and don’t run into any of these storms…xoxo, karen

    Bubba, shame on you, exploiting your own daughter! Most folks are not aware of your family located in the mountains of Pickens County but I am. While your daughter, Bubbaette, might be a bit hairy and not the most attractive young lady to be found in the mountains she has a good and kind heart and is an excellent cook. I have been told she has quit cooking meth, which is a very good thing. I was there at her 16th birthday party with her three children, her mother-your common law wife-together with the rest of her extended family and friends when that photos was taken.An outstanding time was had by all and a lot of credit needs to be given to Bubba Jr’s el primo moonshine. Your boy makes some outstanding shine!I have got to go for now but will follow up in a couple of weeks after having visted the Daniel Boone Forest in Kentucky where there is a thriving community of Big Foots. It is my intention to find a proper mate for Bubbaette.You can thank me later.

    I came online this evening to see if there were any recent sights or sounds of any bigfoot creatures in or around the Monongahela National Forest as of recent.
    Having lived in the Cowen area for over 20 years and hunting and camping in the wilderness of Williams River area many times, I would never have tought that upon returning to camp there years later in my adult years that I would wake up at 3 AM on a very early Labor Day morning after a light misty rain back in 2013 that I would ever experience that yell of some sort of vocal sound what was not of a man or any animal that could even come close have an explanation. I was somewhat skeptical all my life and always interested in them as well as the Flatwoods, WV incident. This incident changed me and it would anyone else as well had they experienced this. One of my dogs growled as I was in a tent but to be honest, I wasn’t really alarmed or scared the least. I seemed to be a peace. I estimated he or even she was not very far up on the ridge above the river in a piece of woods that was between Rockhouse Run Road and the area that the ridge sloped back down toward where the railroad tracks had once ran.

    I have seen and heard bigfoot myself in Upshur county WV not one time of seeing these bigfoots I have seen in different areas of Upshur county once in the late evening once at 2 am in the morning but this one was smaller then the one I saw in my yard that ran through that was 8-9 feet tall this one was about 5-6 foot tall .I haven’t seen him lately or heard him but I know he is still here / just about 6 weeks ago he was seen on a road just about a half a mile away called the ABBOTT RD. I am not afraid of them I feel that there is a need to understand these bigfoots if they can talk or give signs to let us know something / but there is a old tale that a tribe of Indians threw out some of there people for steeling and lying with nothing to hunt with or eat just the clothes on their back and that’s where the bigfoots came from over the years of eating wild food they soon became hairy and the children grew taller and stronger and that explains these 8 to 12 foot hairy man like people its on the web look it up they also weren’t to come in contact with any people for help with food or weapons this explains why we hardly see them around and when we do its for a short time and hard to get good pictures to .//I know bigfoots are real not fake
