Sighting Details:
My son and I usually take trips out to the Pines a few times a year. I had called out of work on a Tuesday and being that the weather was so nice and I had no plans, we thought it'd be a good day to take a ride. It's about a 40-minute ride from our place.

We came in off of Rt 70 onto Woodmansie Road and eventually ended up at the Pomeroy Crossroads intersection out in the woods. It was the first time we've ever seen that stone or been out in that area. We went straight and eventually came around a bend when we spotted an unidentified animal crossing the road onto our right-hand side. The trees had blocked its visibility from our vantage point so we only managed to see it from its waist down. It was covered in reddish-brown hair and we think it was about 5-6" feet tall. You could actually see the hair move as it walked. We only saw it take two steps until it was off the road. We weren't sure whether it had crossed the road completely or was in the process of crossing and then turned and jumped back? The sighting was very quick, about two seconds tops but it took us by surprise. It took my truck about 15 seconds to get to the location of where it was. We looked out, turned the truck off and put the windows down but didn't see anything or hear anything. We didn't notice any strange smells. There was a lot of bushes and pines on the side which it had crossed, so we were pretty surprised how there was no sound at all. I even got out for a brief moment to look for any tracks in the soil but didn't find anything. My son thinks I might have gone out a little too far, but nonetheless we would have been in the same general vicinity as to where it had crossed.

I'm in my late 50s and have never seen anything I couldn't identify when I've traveled out to the Pines. We've always seen plenty of deer and foxes. We've never seen a bear out in the Pines, and that is what we initially thought this was at first. But the way it moved and the color of its hair (reddish-brown) proved to us that it wasn't. We've seen black bear before in Virginia and they've always made plenty of commotion when moving through the woods. This thing didn't make a peep. The Hanson sand and gravel company isn't far from this area. After my sighting, I've always wanted to ask them if they've ever seen or heard anything strange out there, being that they work out there every single day, but there's no telling if they'd be honest or not.
