In North Carolina, Bigfoot Crossed the Road
FOX News ^ | March 24, 2011 | Foxnews.com

Bigfoot caught on tape?

A Shelby, North Carolina man claims to have a video of the legendary Bigfoot.

Thomas Byers was driving with a friend when he says he saw Bigfoot cross Golden Valley Church Road in Rutherford County Tuesday evening. Naturally, he whipped out his video camera and was able to capture a five-second video from about 15 to 20 feet away.

"It ran across the road and into the woods right in front of us and I was able to film it," Byers wrote in an e-mail to WCNC NewsChannel 36 in Charlotte, N.C. "In the short video you can hear it snarl or growl at me."

And Bigfoot, it seems, is in desperate need of a shower. "One thing I know is the smell of it was horrid. It smelled like a cross between road kill and a skunk. And it did not like the fact that I was there on the road with it. In the video you can hear it snarl or growl at me as it crosses the road."

Byers details the event on a personal website where he has posted the video plus a few pictures. In the description, he explains that Bigfoot, or Knobby as it's known locally, has been "spotted for years."

Commenters on his site remained divided over the authenticity of the video.

"Unfortunately, until one is captured or killed and delivered to a lab, nothing can be proven," said online user 'Mike'. "Any sighting could be staged, or a prank by someone in a primate-like costume."

"I personally believe you," said 'Luke'. "But if you want to convince the skeptics out there you need a better video and physical evidence such as droppings."

That just looks too fake, compared to the other “videos” that are out there. This one looks too stubby and seems to almost skip across the road.....

Well, I have to drive over early tomorrow morning to a place about 10 miles NE of there, so I’ll keep a lookout for “Knobby”!

I am a little confused by the references of some that our first lady looks like Big Foot. I can't see the comparison.

Here is the first lady

And here is Big Foot.

No comparison in my opinion.

Dollars to doughnuts there’s moonshine involved here somewhere - it’s often around when fantastic and unverifiable things occur....also a few country boys might get a giggle out of city slickers running their version of Nessie on the news...

That has to be the worst fake bigfoot video I have seen.

Blurriness? Check
Bad looking costume? Check
Odd, dare I say gay gait? Check

The hoaxers get an F. Also, it looks like bigfoot waved in the video. Was he apologizing for jaywalking? Such a nice cryptid.

That must be one of the worst cameras I have ever seen video from. Imagine if he had a new Iphone he could have become a gazillionaire and scientists would be scouring details of facial features for years.

You need to seriously consider shaving your back (LOL). The video is sooooo fake looking.

That's the stupidest thing I ever heard, or saw (channeling Groucho Marx) .

I mean, who ever imagined Bigfoot was actually only four feet tall?!

I'm pretty sure it was one of the Banana Splits but the picture is so poor it's not possible to tell which one.

One thing is certain, we are all going to peg Bozo Byers' hit count.

It smelled like a cross between road kill and a skunk.

Not sure why such a creature, if it exists, would smell that bad unless the thing dines on dead skunks. I've been near deer in the woods and I thought they smelled like a wet blanket. Musty, but not awful.

It looked to me like Big Foot was trying to get across the street because he was about to sh*t his pants.

Agree, that you could not have produced a worse hoax.

You’re confusing Sasquatch with Wookies, a common enough error.

Well, I’m convinced. That blurry picture that some cynics might say is a short man in a gorilla outfit is definitely Bigfoot. And I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.

Nah, there’s a smile behind the eyes of that guy in the Sasquatch getup. Look at Michelle’s eyes sometime—nothing but rage back there.

I agree. The only time the rage in her eyes disappears is when she is stuffing her fat a$$ with greasy foods.

Did someone hire you to troll FR looking for repeat posts, or something? This is the second time I've seen you do this tonight.

You're off to a weird start here, noob.

Already did that, and couldn't believe my eyes. I pinged Darkwing104 to his posting history page. Never seen anything like it here.

I've taken the liberty to enhance the least blurry image from the video and sharpen the image. The results are conclusive and astounding. A hideous creature and apparently her mate.

And woe to he who captures or kills one; the animal rights movement will come down on him like a ton of bricks! They are even a protected species in some localities.
