COUNTY: Cumberland County
LOCATION DETAILS: Base of Black Mountain
NEAREST TOWN: Crab orchard
NEAREST ROAD: Owl roost road
OBSERVED: I was walking in a field located at the base of Black Mountain, Crab Orchard, TN. I had my wife and 2 daughters. As I walked I could sense apprehension from my girls and could feel myself. Feeling that this is from their usual fear of bears I continued the walk. As we made our way around the end of the field I looked up to notice a large black creature jump into the wood line. I looked back at my wife and the words I spoke were “That was big” ... I keep wanting to say it was a wild boar or maybe even bear. That would be fine but it walked on 2 legs and had a backside of a human or ape. And also moved like a bipedal creature.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 1400
ENVIRONMENT: Grassy field with rocky woods.
