Werewolf Sightings in Virginia

One location of werewolf sightings is in Henrico County Virginia of a werewolf that has come to be known as the Werewolf of Henrico County. The story of the werewolf of Henrico County has taken on something of urban legend status…it’s hard to find true first-hand accounts – every thing heard about this particular werewolf seems to be something that a friend said. When you finally are able to get through the excitement and whispers, accounts of the werewolf sightings describe a greyish white creature covered in fur that stands upright and “has the face of an animal”.

These werewolf sightings seem to be clustered in Henrico County Virginia in and around the Confederate Hills Recreation Center.  It is unclear how often the werewolf appears or what its appearances coincide with.

Possible explanations for these werewolf sightings include a hoax by a local – the sightings are after all in and around a recreation center – it is not unplausible to think that a local teen has pulled out his halloween costume and is trying to pull a prank on the local community. There are those however that deny that it is a prank.

Another plausible explanation to the sightings that has been offered which seems to be more likely is that what is being seen is actually a bigfoot, since the area is also a huge spot for bigfoot sightings. If this is true, this would not be the first time a bigfoot has been mistaken for a werewolf. From a distance, both bigfoot and werewolves can look pretty similar. In the darkness, a huge upright creature covered in fur looking vaguely human could be mistaken as either. Unless you have a close-up encounter, it could be very difficult to determine which creature it in fact is.

A final possible explanation for the sightings is that this is in fact a real werewolf.  It does however seem unlikely that this is the case given the location of the sightings – a recreation center.  Rec centers are hubs of activity, and this particular one sits out in the open.  Most werewolves would steer clear of such areas as the chances of being spotted and identified are extremely high.

    One night a was up in my my tree house and I could hear loud footsteps somewhere below me. My dog that I had with was crouched under a shelf whimpering. Whatever it was was snorting and huffing.Then it let out a ear-splitting howl. The streetlight by y tree house came o and I could see the siloueete of a creature that was 7ft. tall with shaggy fur and a long, pointed muzzle. It had glowing red eyes and long, gleaming claws. It had the stench of sewage and other rotten things. You know I’m 10 years old and I’m thinking “What the heck is this thing?” It looked right up at me and then it was like the trees opened up at the creature stepped back into the forest. My sighting was July 1, 2011 at Falkner, Mississippi.

    One ngiht my Mom woke me up because she said I was twitching and making some sort of barking noise. She told I growled at hher sometime in the night when she tried to wake me up. I think I’m a werewolf because I don’t remeber nothing after dusk and in the morning when I wake up I have scratches and burrs all over me.

    for those of u who keep saying ur werewolfs…i cant help but laugh. werewolfs dont expose themselves to the world for several reasons. two of those reasons being the obvious…they dont want to be hunted by people who fear and misunderstand them, and two, they dont want to be tested on by the government. our governments a real peace of work when it comes to the supernatural like that.

  16. Tinashe Gate says:

    Firstly the notion that a man/woman can turn into a wolf like creature is laughable but I do believe there is some sort of animal that hasn’t been discovered yet that resembles a werewolf

    My encounter happened in 1995 I was 9 at the time (Please note that at this stage of my life I hadn’t seen a werewolf movie or even heard of one) Me my father mother and my brother where coming from our rural home in Murehwa (Thats in Zimbabwe in Africa) We where driving along a stretch of road around 10p.m when I felt the need to pee my dad pulled over so that I can go. I didn’t go far from the car so I started relieving myself a few metres away in some tall grass I saw a head sticking out at me from the top this thing was at least 7ft tall and it just stared at me. I quickly zipped my self up and ran back to the car (a little pee got on to my pants) My dad asked me why I looked spooked but I never said anything to him. Our rural areas are known for strong supernatural occurances I like to hear the stories from our elders but I don’t really believe them but some experiances can never be explained
