COUNTY: Washington County
LOCATION DETAILS: 26485 Old Saltworks Rd. Meadowview, VA 24361
We are northeast of the intersection of Northridge and Old Saltworks Rd.
NEAREST TOWN: Meadowview
NEAREST ROAD: Old Saltworks Road
OBSERVED: Not certain of the exact date of this occurrence, but I was lying in bed awake about 3am and was startled by what sounded like something pushing up against and rattling the vinyl siding on our house. This woke Lisa my wife up. I went outside with a flashlight but didn't see anything. We didn't think much of this at the time. Then we had two other occurrences within a two week time span. On Friday, November 16, around 6:15pm my wife and myself were almost home from our daily walk and while at the intersection of Northridge and Old Saltworks Rd., approximately 200 yards from our house we both heard and were surprised by a very loud, deep, guttural sound that was something between a growl and a roar. It only lasted for a couple of seconds. It was very voluminous and powerful. We just stopped and asked each other what on earth did we just hear. Then the incident that was the icing on the cake that made us come to this website and file this report, occurred on Friday, November 23 around 9pm. I shined a light behind our house to see if there were any deer out feeding. About 160 yards from our deck in a small patch of woods behind our house I saw two, large, brilliant, emerald green eyes, which were the shape of human eyes, but were about 7-8 inches apart. This freaked me out. I am an experienced outdoors-man and have logged several hundred days afield over the past 35 years. I have walked for hours by flashlight to get to hunting stands and have never ever seen eyes this shape and of this brilliance and set this far apart before. Before these occurrences I was very skeptical of all the Bigfoot stories and sightings I have seen or read about, but now I am open to the possibility that there is something out there that could fit the description of a Bigfoot. What we heard was very unique, and combined with the eye shine I saw, has changed my mind and opened me up to the possibility of a Sasquatch type creature lurking in the shadows. This is very exciting!
ALSO NOTICED: The rattling of the vinyl siding may or may not have been related, but was itself unique. The wind wasn't blowing.
OTHER WITNESSES: My wife and myself.
OTHER STORIES: No we haven't.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Around 6:15pm on the 16th.
Around 9pm on the 23rd.
ENVIRONMENT: About a two acre patch of woods that was partially logged about ten years ago that has some undergrowth in it.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator D.K.:
After conversing with the witness, the following can be added to his report:
He and his wife heard a loud vocalization at sundown as they were passing the intersection of Northridge Road and Old Saltworks Road, returning home from their road walk.
It came from the woods behind their home and sounded like a loud, growling roar. He was startled at how loud it was.
A week later he was standing on his back deck spotlighting for deer out near his barn.
Beyond the barn in the patch of woods where the roar came from, both he and his wife saw two large, oval shaped eyes staring back at him. The eyes were spaced very widely apart, and he described them as a beautiful, emerald green color.
This area has a healthy population of deer and other resources that might draw a Sasquatch to the area. This part of Virginia has generated a number of reports over the years, and was the focus of Season 2, Episode 12 of Finding Bigfoot, "Virginia is for Bigfoot Lovers".
