Another famous regional bigfoot creature is Georgia's very own Sand Mountain White Thing. A bigfoot type creature that some say looks like an albino bigfoot, while other claims it resembles a bear with a lion's head.
Reports of the White Thing reputedly go back to the earliest settlement of the Sand Mountain area and continue to the present day, with many sightings over the years in the Peek’s Corner Community and in and around Buck’s Pocket.
I heard tales from a former coworker about an early settler family near Collinsville having to board the windows of their cabin, due to the creature attempting to enter their home at night. The late Cloyd Westbrook of Fyffe told me, many years ago, that he and some friends encountered the creature in the late 1940s and was startled when it took off into flight. Chris Palmer of Owens Crossroads says he saw it 15 years ago near Lake Guntersville State Park campground when he was driving home and saw something in the ditch eating a dead deer. Mr Palmer said the hair stood up on the back of his neck when he saw what appeared to be an albino lion looking up at him.
