The leader of a Bigfoot research group in North Carolina claims to have had a dramatic close encounter with the creature during an expedition on Friday night.
John Bruner, founder of the organization 'Bigfoot 911,' says that he and six other investigators were in a forested area of the state's McDowell County when the incident occurred.
According to him, the group had placed glow sticks in the woods because they believe that the illuminated objects can garner the attention of the cryptid.
In this instance, their suspicions appear to have been correct as Bruner spotted one of the sticks moving in the forest and quickly turned on his headlamp to see what was carrying the glowing object.
To his amazement, the light revealed a large, hairy, bipedal creature that one would assume was, in fact, Bigfoot!
