VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) –
Believe or not, some think they’ve seen Bigfoot in the woods of Vicksburg.
David Childers, co-founder of the Delta Paranormal Project, said he was in the woods of an abandoned playground near downtown Vicksburg when he saw an unusual creature.
According to Childers, he was taking pictures last November looking for ghosts or paranormal activity when he was startled by an unknown beast.
On August 12th of this year Peyton Lassiter was walking along Wisconsin Avenue when he saw a giant footprint and later made a cast of it.
Lassiter reached out to Childers about his find. This weekend the two returned to the woods to investigate.
“I just happened to turn around real quick. I saw this creature. It was about six , seven foot tall, and it’s hard to exactly get the correct height because of the distance away from me but it stood up and just jetted off and you know it happened so quick, but I know it was like a grayish brown color. I know for a fact it wasn’t a bear or a deer,” said Childers.
“It’s nine inches long and the width of what appears to be toes or claws if you will is six inches wide and that right there isn’t human,” said Peyton Lassiter.
Childers said he was unable to take a picture, because it happened so quickly.
He plans to return to the woods to gather evidence as well as place recording devices in the area where he spotted the unknown creature.
