A normally routine trip to the post office turned into an unforgettable experience for a woman in North Carolina who says that she spotted a Bigfoot crossing the road during her drive. The bizarre sighting took place in the town of Littleton last Friday evening as Eboni Byrd was on her way out to mail some packages. Reaching an intersection, she brought her car to rest at a stop sign and, much to her profound surprise, noticed what she believes was a Sasquatch up ahead of her vehicle.
Recounting the sighting to cryptozoologist Stephen Barcelo, Byrd marveled that "it was like a big, broad-shouldered thing. It stood upright like a human and his arms went down past his knees and it was walking ape-like." Continuing onward to her destination, because the post office was going to close soon, the bewildered witness couldn't help but wonder what she had just seen. "As soon as I turned the corner, I was like 'wait a minute, that was Bigfoot,'" she recalled, "it was not a human."
After dropping off her packages at the post office, Byrd returned to the area, but didn't see any sign of the creature. Over the next few days, she could not get the sighting off of her mind and eventually decided to report the event to Barcelo, who recorded a rather remarkable video (seen below) in which Byrd vividly shares her story. Seemingly still quite shaken up about the encounter, she astutely observes that "I have no reason to lie. I have no reason to bring this attention to myself."
While skeptics will likely scoff at the account and attribute it to some kind of misidentification, there's something about hearing the story in Byrd's own voice that gives one the impression that she truly saw a Sasquatch last Friday afternoon. "I saw Bigfoot. It was Bigfoot," she haltingly declared to Barcelo as if, like many witnesses to the strange and unusual before her, she still can't quite believe it herself.
