'Big Foot' sighted in Cleveland County ... again

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 10:46 AM

Apparently, stories about Cleveland County's very own Sasquatch have been circulating for decades.

Just in case you're planning a trip to the wilds of our neighbor to the west, here's what you should be on the look out for: A really tall dude-like creature with "beautiful yellowish hair" and an overgrown beard who runs away when you say things like, "Get, get."

Now, before you laugh: The guy who sighted Big Foot last week has asked people not to.

Sgt. Mark Self of the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office remembers the sightings of a "Bigfoot Beast" when he was a child.

"It scared me," he recalled. Self said people believed they saw a Sasquatch in the same parts of Cleveland County. The reports were frightening to the then 10-year-old boy. "It was killing animals and breaking into barns and killing chickens," he said of the reported stories.

Peeler says it's the same creature that he saw for himself just last week near his home atop a mountain in Casar. He says the beast was approaching his dogs and got wrapped around their chains.

"I rough talked him and said, 'you get away from here,'" he said. Peeler says the beast eventually left, but then came back again. "And I said, 'get, get,' and he went back down the path again."

Here's some footage from other purported Big Foot sightings, which only lead to more questions about last week's sighting in Cleveland County since the beast in the video is clearly a brunette.
