Mississippians Share Personal Bigfoot Experiences

Mississippi is no stranger to Bigfoot sightings and just a couple weeks ago they gathered to share their personal experiences with the team from The cast and crew of “Finding Bigfoot,” a television show on the Animal Planet network. Many of them weren’t just there to talk about folklore or rumors but rather real deal personal encounters and sightings.

Matthew Watson, of Toomsumba, said he saw Bigfoot five years ago as he was driving home from work.

“I was coming home from work, April 2011, it was about 4:30 in the evening and there’s a little road that I take that has a little bridge,” Watson said. “I go across the bridge and there’s a power line cut. I look to the left, into the power line cut, where there’s usually deer but this time it was a 9-foot-tall, hairy creature running across at full sprint, like a line backer running at full speed down the line. It was amazingly shocking. By the time I had stopped to turn around, it was gone. Gone. Massive creature.”

I’m glad to see this happening, though I doubt the seriousness of any television show, but anytime people can share their stories is a victory to me.
