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. img.Report this post to Admin please.com/albums/v185/undysided/bigfoot1.jpg[/IMG]
I was suspicious of this report due to the mention of "Boggy Creek" (which was featured in the horror movie "The Legend of Boggy Creek"), and the lack of a date, but searching on the 'Net did bring up the source of this story at Cryptomundo, including the pictures as seen here. Apparently there is a Clear Boggy Creek in Atoka County, Oklahoma, and this sighting was reported in July 2006.
My personal opinion? I think it is a hoax. The critter's dangling forelimb looks far too long and human-like (it has an elbow, for pete's sake!) to be a bear's foreleg, and the "paw" is definitely not a bear's. It does seem to resemble a large primate's "hand", but could also be a costumed man's.
