Welcome to the Strange: Pig Man Spotted in Kentucky!

Hey strangers! I like weird creatures, you should know that by now. Back in the day a women in Kentucky spotted a human/bacon hybrid, that sounds delicious.


A woman in Calloway County says she saw a pink pig like bipedal animal about 11 miles from the town of Murray.

The woman reports she was on her way home driving on Highway 94 when she spotted the creature in plain daylight.

“I was in my little red Mercury Bobcat and  I saw a tall, slender creature on the side of the road,” she told Thomas Marcum about the 1983 encounter.

The woman claims the unidentified animal had just jumped out of a field crop just 50 feet away from her vehicle, running across the road “like a gorilla”.

“It was using his arms and legs, headed in to the marsh land going towards Kentucky Lake.”

She says she got out of the car and hollered at it. The the animal then stopped, turned around and began looking straight at her. Reportedly, as fear sank in, she headed back to her vehicle and locked its doors.

“I waited a few minutes while the creature was still visible. This was rush hour, but the odd thing is that there were no vehicles in sight,” she recalls.

So, she says, hoping someone would come along, she waited a little longer.

“I could flag them down and they could see the creature, too.”

She described the creature as a 7 foot tall hairless animal with a pink skin, a long torso and arms, hands similar to that of a human and short legs. Its neck was longer than a human’s  and it held a small head with small pointy ears. She said its face hosted intelligent eyes and a pig like snout.

She believes the being was a young one and that it reminded her of a teenager, “mischievous but not harmful”.

“I would describe it as a cross between a primate, a pig, and a human,” she said.

As soon as she got home, The woman told her husband about the odd encounter, but he didn’t take her seriously.


“He thought I was crazy, but I know what I saw,” she said.

Marcum thinks the animal could have been a Dogman, a cryptid reputed to live in the northwestern quadrant of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, although other sightings have been reported in different locations, such as Kentucky. The beast was first reported to have been seen in 1887 by two lumberjacks, who described it as having a human body and a dog’s head.

“Maybe with some kind of skin or hair condition that caused it to lose all of it’s hair,” theorized Marcum.

A pig man is cool but you could pet and play fetch with a dog man, STAY STRANGE!
