There have been some recent reports coming out of Atoka, Oklahoma of sightings of Bigfoot there.
I have received more than a few emails from people in the area, relaying the stories published in the Atoka County Times, a weekly newspaper from the area.
Thursday night, KXII Channel 12 news ran a report concerning these recent sightings. The station’s website has the video clip of the broadcast.
A local legend is getting new life. In the last two weeks, there were three separate Bigfoot sighting in rural Atoka County. The final sighting included photos that some say is the mysterious creature itself.
Talk to people around Clear Boggy Creek in Atoka County and you will here thousands of stories. But last week, the legend himself, Bigfoot, was supposedly spotted in those very woods.
They have grown up on these woods and know them well. But last week, 13-year-old Morgan Whatley and her 12-year-old brother Garrett came across something strange right across the creek was a creature she’d never seen before.
But the claims of the Whatley kids were passed off as a child’s imagination. That changed just days later when a woman in her fifties had to be taken to a hospital. She reported seeing a big hairy creature in her yard and had an anxiety attack.
It’s all over the newspaper and on everyone’s mind; what was seen at boggy bottom? Some people say it is Bigfoot. Others aren’t believers yet.
A local store owner set up game cameras hoping to catch a glimpse. The pictures are below. We’ll let you be the judge.

Are these photos of a Bigfoot? It looks like a person wearing an animal pelt draped over their back to me. An enlargement of the right hand shows what looks like to me a light-skinned person’s bare fingers.
What do the readers of Cryptomundo think?
At least it’s not this guy again…
