CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Shelby man says he has captured video of Bigfoot.

Thomas Byers e-mailed NewsChannel 36, saying he saw Bigfoot walk across Golden Valley Church Road in Rutherford County Tuesday evening.

Byers' says he was about 15 to 20 feet away from the creature when he captured a five-second video.

"It ran across the road and into the woods right in front of us and I was able to film it," Byers wrote. "In the short video you can hear it snarl or growl at me."

Video at source. A poor quality production hoax, IMO.

The South Mountains area. Last year there was some ‘footprints’ found in that AO.

He looks like he is waving at the camera in the middle of the video. Bigfoot don’t wave at nobody, fool!

This joins the huge collection of hoax UFO photos. All fuzzy and setups.

Did anyone notice this “Big Foot” gives a brief wave as he crosses the road?

Obviously moves like a human in a suit...also, based on its size in relation to the road width, it’s clearly a person.

Looks like Walter Brennan as Amos McCoy in a monkey suit, judging by the hitch in his giddyup.

Looks like Oscar the Grouch to me
or maybe Cookie monster.

No wonder it was snarling and growling,
“No, don’t take my picture now, all this
hair makes my butt look fat. I said NOOO!”

Yeah. The way it's gait changes as it crosses the centerline looks pretty suspicious.

LOL! I can’t believe anyone would take that video seriously.

Anyone who does probably believes Plan Nine From Outer Space was really a documentary.

Impossible that Plan 9 was a documentary. It hasn't happened, yet. After all......

We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

So there I am.... standing in the middle of an old country road with my trusty video camera at the ready.

Along comes a monster right in front of me and only 15 to 20 feet away.

With nerves of steel, I refuse to retreat or run to safety. No, I hold my my trusty camera steady and go for the shot of a lifetime.

Imagine my disappointment when I found that my camera performed so poorly.

Worldwide fame and unimaginable fortunes were lost because of the poor quality footage.

Be all that as it may, my hunt for this elusive monster will continue to be my life’s work.

On my next opportunity I will be better prepared. To allow for the time needed to better adjust my camera, I will distract the magnificent monster by tossing a rubber chicken in his path.... a hunting tool that I will now cary on my person for the rest of my life.

A Classic. Wasn’t he played by Andre the Giant? Also, didn’t he turn out to be some sort of alien android Bigfoot thing? It’s been a few years and the memories are a bit foggy.

Faked. Compare it to the Patterson film and note the unsteady stride vs. the easy flow of movement.
