Possible Bigfoot Sighting at Mammoth Cave National Park
According to a local news article we found, a Mammoth Cave spokesperson said that law enforcement rangers responded early Sunday to a report of a person with a firearm at one of the Kentucky park's backcountry campsites.
A camper, Brad Ginn, told reporters that he and his girlfriend were camping nearby when they were suddenly awakened around 1 a.m. by a man with his son. The man told Ginn that they were going into the woods to investigate strange noises that they kept hearing.
Ginn said he heard a gunshot a few minutes later, and shortly after the man returned to say Bigfoot had emerged from the woods - so he fired. Ginn said he and his girlfriend decided to leave and report the incident.
Federal officials are now investigating the case at Mammoth Cave National Park. Park spokeswoman Molly Schroer says the park is safe to visit.
