MCDOWELL COUNTY, N.C. (WLOS) — A local group that says it tracks Bigfoot in the North Carolina mountains reported a sighting over the weekend in McDowell County.

The group has a Facebook page called Bigfoot911.

Leader John Bruner, of Marion, says the sighting happened Friday at 11 p.m. in a wooded area. He says a team of seven people was out at the time scattering glow sticks when someone – or something – threw rocks back at them.

He says they saw a large animal covered in hair that took off running.

Bigfoot911 formed three years ago and claims to have extensive evidence that the beast exists.
