for Lee County,
Witness: Jay (last name on file) and two friends.
Location: Daniel Boone National Forest
Date: November 2009
Describe your encounter:
"There were 4 to 5 friends that built a cabin very secluded on approx a 1500 acre farm. There is only one road in with locked gate. The is some ATV access. The cabin sits in the middle of a pine thicket about the half-way point on the property. It was deer season and there were 3 of us staying in the cabin at that time. During the night I would hear what sounded like something hitting the side of the cabin. I was thinking it was the guy sleeping across from me rolling over and hitting the wall in his sleep, but I could never hear him move when I would hear the thuds. I believe it was around 5am and we were all awake and something outside the cabin made a sound that I could only describe as gibberish, almost human-like sound, jumbled words with a raspy deep voice. That's when we became nervous.
This seemed logical at the time. We decided to open one of the doors and shoot up into the air. Whatever was outside the cabin became enraged I'm assuming because it started making a screaming/roaring sound. The cabin had two doors and this thing went to other side. This made everything worse. It was more intense for about 30 minutes until another friend drove up to the cabin. The thing went into the woods, making the same type sounds, plus what sounded like limbs being broke."
I've met Jay and one of the other witnesses on a TN BFRO expedtion a few years ago when he first shared this encounter. Jay and his buddy are both very large men and experienced hunters. I seriously doubt a person would have played a prank on these gentleman. I follow-up investigation was conducted by a BFRO investigator in which he observed a clear bi-pedal figure walk along a treeline on a thermal imager. Unfortunaetly the device was not able to record the encounter.

Please describe the encounter:
H.G. was having a cook-out in the fall of 2001. It was a pretty evening and it was about an hour before sunset. Everyone had eaten and some went inside when H.G. and a few guests heard a VERY loud scream/roar come from his backyard which is covered in dense woods. Shortly after this loud scream the witnesses heard a similar scream come from another location, deeper in the woods. He described the area where this more distant scream took place as having a very rocky terrain with large boulders, which he thought might be where these creatures resided. H.G. did not visit the location until recently (10 years later) and the power company cleared out the area with a power line/gas line cut. H.G. stressed to me over and over that this thing, whatever it was, had a set of lungs on it and after visiting some websites he said those screams sounded like the sasquatch vocals online. When the more distant scream took place he noticed the birds were spooked and flew off. No visual contact was ever established.
I believe H.G. and feel he is sincere in his descriptions. He certainly sparks interest in me as to what could have made those sounds. He is presently getting permission to go back to that area.

FOLLOW-UP REPORT: 7-6-10
I spoke to 17 year-old Lee County native, John Mullins on July 6th, 2010. He is a very respectful young man and, despite his incredible story, struck me as being very sincere and credible. He was bow-hunting with his brother and uncle just after dusk on Oct. 3rd., 2009 outside Beattyville, Ky. The three had seperated and he was alone in his deer-stand. The snapping of a limb alerted him and, looking to his left, he saw the creature standing in the brush beside a tree about 60 ft. away. He only saw it from its torso up, and it was now getting good and dark, but he could see enough to know that it was humanoid with a hair-covered, man-like body and the head of a wolf. He watched it for about 5 minutes before it backed away into the trees on two legs. Seconds later a loud moaning sound was heard by 2 of the 3 hunters. John described it to me as sounding like "a lion yawning." Soon afterwards another tree-break was heard and the creature appeared to John for the second time. He wanted to shoot but something kept him from doing so. A few seconds later it simply walked back into the woods, again on 2 legs, and disappeared. When asked for more detail about its appearance, John told me that he could definately see the shoulders, which were man-like and that it had 4" to 5" long, pointed ears "sticking straight up on the top of its head." He did not see the thing's hands, legs, or feet. He had never heard of the other eastern Ky. 'Dogman' sightings or of the alleged repeated events in Western Ky. involving the 'Beast of LBL' and has no other experiences involving anything that could be considered unexplained.
