Bigfoot statue fools N. Carolina residents
Multiple reports of a Bigfoot with glowing red eyes in the North Carolina town of Mocksville have been explained, and it turns out the callers weren’t imagining things.
Davie County Animal Services revealed in a Friday Facebook post that the creature seen standing in a forested area is an 8-foot wooden statue of a Bigfoot and not the real thing.
“This handsome fellow stands on Pine Ridge Road,” says the county’s post. “If you are traveling this road at night, please be advised that the eyes appear to glow. If you see this phenomenon, you do not need to call animal control to report seeing Bigfoot, Sasquatch or any other large creature. Thank you.”
Animal services told the Charlotte Observer the statue’s eyes are embedded with red glass marbles, which are reflecting the headlights of passing cars.
The department has had multiple calls about the statue — all at night — from people who believed they were seeing the legendary creature believed by some to live in deeply forested areas.
The existence of Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, has yet to be proven, but sightings have been reported for decades across the nation.
