Big­foot statue fools N. Carolina res­i­dents

Lodi News-Sentinel - - LOCAL/NATION - By Mark Price

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.
