MOCKSVILLE, N.C. (WFMY) — It sounds pretty wild and yet all too familiar for North Carolina: reports of an 8-foot tall hairy creature in the woods with red glowing eyes.
But that’s exactly the kind of calls Davie County Animal Services keeps getting. The callers, however, are correct about what they’re seeing. Yes, it is a Bigfoot -- however, it isn’t alive.
It's actually a life-like Bigfoot or Sasquatch wooden statue placed in woods just off Pine Ridge Road in Mocksville.
The statue is of an 8-foot wooden Bigfoot. The statue’s eyes are embedded with red glass marbles which reflect the headlights of passing cars at night, giving a glowing appearance.
Davie County Animal Services said they’ve received numerous calls about Bigfoot sightings mainly at night.
They received so many calls that they got down to the bottom of it and posted about the Bigfoot on their Facebook page.
"This handsome fellow stands on Pine Ridge Road in Mocksville. 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."
Davie County Animal Services said they do not know who put the wood carving there but said it could be neighbors in the area.
