Please describe your encounter:

My girlfriend and I were crossing Black Mountain and towards the bottom of the mountain a large blackish brown creature was standing along the side of the road near the guardrail. When the headlights of the car crossed the creature it darted down the side of the hill.

Describe the creature with detail:

Roughly 7 to 7 and a half feet tall with a blackish brown hair. It had a large barrel chest but became startled when it came into the light of the car. 

Follow-up: 12-10-12

The witnesses were driving down a very curvy road on Black Mountain, the tallest mountain in KY. As they came around a curve going about 30mph their headlights came across a 7 foot, black/dark brown bi-pedal creature standing by a tree on the opposite side of the road. It was looking up the hill with one arm hidden behind the tree, the other arm hung low by its knees. It quickly turned and walked down the hill. It was maybe 400 lbs, “very big, especially around the chest and shoulders.” It had long hair except for the face which seemed to have no hair with the skin being a little lighter in color. The forehead sloped back and it had a pointed head. No other details such as facial details were noticeable as the entire sighting was very brief. John, the driver noticed it first then he told his girlfriend. She only caught a glimpse of it. The sighting lasted maybe 20 seconds or less. They did not stop. The location is about 2 miles from Lynch Country Club. This area is covered in dense forest. In the past John has seen black bear and plenty of game in the area. At the bottom of the mountain is a river, which happened to be the direction the creature headed. 

If we had a researcher in the area, John said he would be happy to show them the exact spot. John seemed very matter-of-fact and sincere.
