The mystery of Bigfoot continues today thanks to a local North Carolina resident who claims he saw the elusive figure in person.

Thomas Byers allegedly saw Bigfoot on Golden Valley Church Road in Rutherford County, NC. Fortunately, he had his camera with him, and managed to take a video of the incident, which he later submitted to YouTube.

"It ran across the road and into the woods right in front of us and I was able to film it. In the short video you can hear it snarl or growl at me," Byers said to WCNC.com, via e-mail.

Byers described the event in more detail on HubPages, where he explained that he and friend Carolyn Wright "observed a large upright brown furry animal between six and seven feet tall come up out of the field beside the road and then it ran across the road in front of the pick up truck we were in."

Is Byers for real? Or is this just another Bigfoot hoax? Watch the video below, then see some other memorable alleged Bigfoot sightings caught on tape.
