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."

I thought they were in Brazil?
Impossible. She was in South America at the time.
OK, I admit it. I was lost in the woods.
...that could be anything....
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.....
That’s Al Gore looking for toilet paper.....I mean a pine cone.
are we sure this wasn’t the first lady?
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”!
What the F*** is goonygoogoo
And it waved! ROF!
Here is the first lady
And here is Big Foot.
No comparison in my opinion.
Moobacca, the First Wookie!
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.
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.
“I admit it... I was lost in the woods”.
You need to seriously consider shaving your back (LOL). The video is sooooo fake looking.
It looks like an Ewok, and it skips like on too!
Isn’t that amazing. Wow! Pictures that clear and no time to focus! Wow!
