sheepsquatch– – Mysterious shadows, screams in the night, hairy hominids, and a hair-raising sense that something is watching me…these are a few of my favorite things!  Few cryptic creatures are as laughably strange, however, as is the Sheepsquatch, a crossover between mutton and man reported throughout West Virginia and in the southwestern region of Virginia. 

Also known as “the white thing,” Sheepsquatch is described as a goat-faced, ram-horned Bigfoot clone that’s about the size of a bear with completely white, wool-like fur.  The head is long and pointed like a dog’s, sporting long saber-like teeth.  The creature has horns like those of a young goat, which some observers have mistaken for a second set of eyes.  Curiously, the front limbs of Sheepsquatch are reported to end in paw-like hands, similar to those of a raccoon but larger.  Bringing up the rear is a long and hairless tail.  As a topper, this “sheep that’s gone savage” is reported to smell like sulfur!  No wonder it’s elusive…
