MCDOWELL COUNTY, N.C. — A group who says it tracks bigfoot in the North Carolina mountains reported a sighting over the weekend, WLOS reports.

Bigfoot 911 group leader John Bruner says the sighting happened around 11 p.m. Friday in a wooded area. He claims a seven-person team was out scattering glow sticks when someone –or something — threw rocks back at them.

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

Bigfoot 911 formed three years ago and claims to have extensive evidence that the legendary beast exists.
