Evening sighting by ice fisherman near Friendship Lake
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Jefferson County
LOCATION DETAILS: Jefferson County Ohio. The town of Smithfield, Friendship Lake. I do not recall the name of the road. The segment of road that connects the gates of Friendship lake to the town of Smithfield. Traveling from the gate to towards the town. The incident occured in a field on the right hand side of the road, about 1/2 way up the hill.
NEAREST TOWN: Smithfield
OBSERVED: Two large white hairy creatures. The creatures where larger than man, both in build and height. The creatures were carrying a item which appeared to be the size of a pickup truck's bed. They were carrying the object over a hill towards a pond. When we stopped to observe, they dropped the item they were carrying and fell to the ground. The creatures tried to hide in the bush without success.
ALSO NOTICED: We observed the creatures for about one, maybe two minutes. We decided to turn the truck around for a better view. We drove about a total of 1/8 of a mile; this action took about one minute. Upon arrival back at the sight, the creatures and what they were carrying, was gone.
OTHER WITNESSES: My Father and I were ice-fishing at a nearby pond. During the sighting we were driving on a road.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: The sighting occurred approximately in 1988, during the winter months. The time of day was at dusk.
ENVIRONMENT: The creatures walked down the hill approaching a pond. Strip
mining formed the area. Mining not glaciers formed the ponds in southern Ohio.
