John Bruner, who has a team called Bigfoot 911, always knows to be prepared, which is why there are pictures of the encounter in Boone NC. Bruner says they made eye contact for nearly 10 seconds.
He also noted he could smell the creature a mile away, ad two legs, hair all over, a flat nose, and he smelled musty.
The encounter was short, though. "It didn't appear aggressive at all," he said. "It turned and went down the hill toward the bottom of the ridge line, which is where we were at and went about four yards in about five steps." People have been tracking the “beast” for decades.
A few miles away in Greenville SC Police have posted a warning. “If you see Bigfoot, please do not shoot at him/her. You’ll most likely be wounding a fun-loving and well-intentioned person, sweating in a gorilla costume,”
