The Wildman sighting summer 80’s, Cannock Chase
Witness account: I was over Cannock chase with a girlfriend about 25 years ago on a warm summers night when she noticed something in the tree line watching us? And honestly when I looked, it looked like a large man in a fur coat standing in the trees watching us, when I turned on the car lights “it” ran deeper in to the trees. “He” was very big and it did look as though he was sloughed over as well, (leaning forward) the side of him as I saw him through the trees looked like a bodybuilder. I didn’t hear anything on the night, strange not even when he moved through the trees. I never knew there were strange things happening over the chase until one of my friends mentioned it about a year ago. This happened to me close to the German Cemetery at Cannock.
As we know from other witness account’s Cannock Chase is a hot bed of strange occurrences we also have a accounts fro there of tall wolf like creature’s spotted close to the German Cemetery. and sightings of many upright human shaped creatures that still come in even to this day.
The Cannock Chase Wildman Aug 2015
I live near the Cannock chase area I had a real encounter with something strange. I was walking through the chase with my family and they stopped and had something to eat, so I went for a little explore on my own and as I came up by an area where there were lots of downed trees, I saw something really strange, out the corner of my eye I saw something that looked like a person in a Chewbacca costume from star wars, he was just really bulky and big, whatever it was it stood still like it had been frozen in time, so I shouted in a friendly voice “what are you doing in a costume out here, are you stupid”? the subject was about 250/300 feet away from me at this point, and as I shouted the subject turned around and let off this growl that was like a lions roar but from inside its body.
I stood frozen thinking it isn’t a person in a suite !!! And as it turned its leg and went to move, the back muscles expanded like a body builder and it began to run away, it wasn’t coming to me, but running in the opposite direction? Whatever this “thing” was it had patches of hair or fur missing on it’s back and right leg? I didn’t want to chase it, it was huge and now thinking back on it, I know it’s his home not mine and it didn’t do anything to hurt me. That day when it ran off and as it got just out of sight I heard a big crash, this subject pushed a tree over like it was nothing
I still cant believe what I saw, it was a dark colour, like a brown but when the sun hit it there was like a reddish brown colour to it, you could see the muscles expanding when it moved, it had patches of hair missing like it had been caught on barb wire or attacked in some way? But I don’t know what would attack something that big? I was close enough to notice it had hair on top of hands and the skin was like a grey/white colour. It moved in a weird way, when it turned to look at me, it moved its head and shoulder at the same time, like it couldn’t turn it’s head without turning its body somehow.
I wasn’t going to tell anyone but it was just there in my mind, thinking if I told anyone I would be put in a loony bin. How do I tell people about this and the fact the subject growled and grunted as it walked, away I’ll never forget the sound it made. The Stoke Article
