The alleged sighting in McDowell County involved the Marion-based group Bigfoot 911, which investigates reports of Bigfoot appearances. John Bruner of Bigfoot 911 reported the incident Saturday on the Bigfoot 911 Facebook page.
A group of seven people were out that night, when Bruner says he spotted the beast. He says it disappeared into the woods after the two made eye contact.
“I was able to see details of the creature … like the face, and the hair was matted and stringy. The eyes were farther apart than human eyes,” Bruner said in his Facebook post.
