Finding Bigfoot

You'd think that a feral, apelike creature would tread lightly around humans who are equipped to respond to a sighting with a hail of bullets. Surprisingly, though, Bigfoot seems oblivious to our puny human weaponry, as a Blackstone, Va., man and his son discovered in the early morning hours of May 3, 2011. When the two heard a loud noise outside their home, the man grabbed his pistol and the son picked up a shotgun, and they went outside to investigate, figuring that they would encounter either a burglar or a bear.

Instead, the man reported on the BFRO Web site, they were confronted by an eight-foot-tall hair-covered humanoid creature running toward them from the nearby woods. The man screamed at the creature to stop and told his son to shoot, which he did -- into the air. The creature shrieked but continued running toward them, getting to within 15 feet before the pair retreated back into their house. "I was in terror," the man wrote. He recalled that the Bigfoot had a pervasive odor that "really stunk" and left footprints that were 18 to 20 inches (45.7 to 50.8 centimeters) long. An investigator who visited the man's farm and interviewed him documented a series of other unusual incidents, including loud wails and slaps on the side of the house at night, suggesting that Bigfoot has paid him repeat visits.
