Click the link to the map or my post wont make any sense.
For once i might be one of the few that actually knows the most about this subject for this area but heres my observations on the local legend. The
Map attached shows the outs skirts of lawrenceburg KY where sightings of a big hairy like creature have been reported over the years. The first Red
dot is a sighting that happened in 1993 where a father and son were hunting and spotted the creature. Their story can be found on several websites and
has been on monster quest as well as wildman of ky.
The set of two red dots is the location of cedar brook bridge home of the legendary howlie, howdy, red eyed creature that has supposedly been sighted
by various teens over the years. Most of the reports of seeing it have come from frightened teens and have been written off to be teens having a
little to much to drink or drugs.
The set of three dots is the location of my sighting, it was a warm summer day of 2006 my kids and i were fishing in small pool from a creek off of
harry wise rd. It stepped out of the tree line about 25ft away and at first It looked like a large man in brown carhartt coveralls. The whole thing
lasted less then a minute, it stood there and starred at us. I looked over at my daughter and she was pale white she saw it too, when i looked back it
was gone it had stepped back into the trees just a stealthily as it stepped out of them. This is not the first time ive seen this creature , Once in
the summer of 1990 but i dismissed it as me seeing things. Then i saw it again two years ago in a treeline, all of the sightings have been close to
the set of three red dots. There have been numerous other times other family members have heard what i believe to be its strange howls. As well as a
few sites where trees have been scratched up as high as 7 feet in the air like something was dulling its claws. There was a peak of strange activity
in the late 80's where there seemed to be allot of activity however at that time there where people living off of bailys run and after they left the
sightings quit of course.
The set of four dots is another area where the creature was spotted, i think its listed bfro's web site as a wildcat rd sighting.
The blue dot is a large water drainage tunnel ( maybe 7ft plus high ) that runs under US 127 then dumps out onto the farm where the first sighting i
mentioned was. The red line is a crude marker for something that isnt on most maps, a creek named baileys run which is the creek my kids and i where
fishing in. The creek isnt on newer maps because it runs dry quite often however when it isnt dry is when sightings seem to happen and nightly howls
can be heard.
As a kid i hiked up and down this creek several times and its quite easy to go from one sighting location to another without being seen as there are
no houses or roads you really need to cross. So you have a few miles of area that no one inhabits or even bothers to go to unless its deer season and
on each end you have a river. The kentucky river on one end and salt river on the other which salt river is not much of a river but its still called
one. It seems extremely plausible that what i and others have seen could reside and eat well in this environment and go undetected with little to no
effort. An animal traveling up and down a stream not only makes sense but its fairly common behavior and from ive noticed its rare in any bigfoot
sighting for it to be to far from a body of water, streams seem to be a common point.From my observations as well as another s this creature is more
active this time of year early fall has anyone ever noticed any correlation with this season and sightings in other areas?
The black dot on the map is panther rock which was featured recently in the movie/documentary "wild man of Kentucky". Not a bad flick but it had to
much cgi for me , it needed a little bit more meat. I may be one of the few people still alive that know where all the different caves are at panther
rock and many of them could be used for shelter. I do not recommend anyone attempt to go out to panther rock as it is private property and if you have
never been there it is extremely easy to walk off the main cliff as the horizons blend well.
