Two Men Startled by Pair of Bigfoot-like Creatures in North Carolina

OAK RIDGE, N.C. — Two North Carolina men on Sunday said that they came upon two Bigfoot-like creatures in Guilford County.

Alan Coleman, a retired 44-year-old North Carolinian, told Cryptozoology News that he and his friend were looking for “potential hunting locations” back in January when they encountered the creatures.

“We decided to scout this track of land in Oak Ridge and determine if it would be a good location for the coming season,” he said. “We arrived about 3:30 p.m. and decided to follow the creek bottom to look for signs,” he added.

The two men reportedly walked for about 30 minutes when they came across an area they thought could be a good spot.

“It was a heavily traveled game trail and decided to sit down and see if any deer may be in the area, and to rest. After sitting there about 5 minutes or so, we heard movement in the thicket. We were sure it was a big buck making its way through as it was making a lot of noise and sounded as if it was struggling to get through the thicket.”

But, he explains, there was no deer coming from it. As one of the animals purportedly struggled to make its way through the bushes, Coleman and his friend recall a sudden and uneasy silence.

“That’s when I saw it. Crouched down by the creek maybe 40 yards away. My friend, startled to say the least, started to get up when the other one stepped out of the thicket on the creek side. A feeling came over me unlike no feeling I’ve ever felt,” said Coleman. “It was instant fear. My heart was pounding and I was trembling.”

According to the eyewitness, one of the creatures “casually walked” to meet the one crouching by the creek. The two men sat there, waiting for the animals to leave. Finally, he says, they went down the creek.

“One of them was bigger than the other. I didn’t notice this until the one crouched stood up. The taller one stopped frequently to look around. When we couldn’t see or hear them anymore, we tore down through the woods to my truck and left.”

Coleman described the creatures as having brown and shaggy hair fading to grey in certain areas. He estimated the taller’s creature’s weight at over 400 pounds and believed it was about 8 feet tall.

“Broad shoulders. Almost a hunched over walk with massive arms and legs, it looked muscular and fat.”

And Coleman, who says he has never anything like it before, believes the animal could have easily overtaken he and his friend.

“I’m a big guy, and there’s not to many things I’m afraid of but, I was overcome with pure fear,” he said.

Last April, a group of children in Ranlo, North Carolina, told Cryptozoology News that they had seen a similar creature.

In early January, a man in Kings Mountain said he had encountered a being that resembled a Neanderthal.

The town of Oak Ridge has a population of 6,500 and is home to Oak Ridge Military Academy, one of the oldest military schools currently operating in the United States.

    Is this where the famous country band The Oak Ridge Boys came from? The story sounds believable but I have a hard time when he said the disturbance sounded if it was having a hard time moving through the brush. Something that is 8 ft. And 400+ pounds doesn’t have a hard time with sage brush. Calling B.S. On this one people!

      Don’t be so quick to call B.S. The guy said it sounded like a “buck” fighting its way through the brush. Something that big is actually just leisurely bulldozing his way through the thicket. I would say it was probably making a lot of noise to scare off any other predators at the creek. They are big but probably not immune to a surprised hungry bear.

      Sage brush? You must be one of those flat landers from the southwest. I’m an East Tennessee native but I live just a few miles from the Western NC border. The mountains in both states are steep, lush and covered with Laurel and Rhododendron thickets making it very difficult for the smallest animal to navigate that type of terrain, let alone a large bipedal creature. By the way, the Oak Ridge Boys are from my neck of the woods, near Knoxville TN. They named themselves after a nuclear power facility because early on in their careers they performed there so much that it was a fitting title. Oak Ridge Tn. was also the HQ for the Manhattan Project which was responsible for designing and detonating the first atomic bomb. So much history, so little time.

    Who said anything about sage brush it’s not the desert! If you were ever out in forested area’s at all you would know thick brush and under growth can in fact be very difficult for any large creature to move through.

    We do not have sage brush in NC, but we definitely have some very very thick undergrowth with all different types of vines and briar patches. I’ve definitely made my way through some that a rhino would have difficulty getting through.
