After an alleged encounter with Bigfoot, a camper is being investigated for opening fire in a US national park, reports independent.co.uk.
The alarm was raised at Mammoth Cave in Kentucky on Sunday after a frenzied person with a weapon and a flashlight awakened two campers-Madelyn Durand and Brad Ginn-at 11 p.m.
“We got out and saw a man [and his son] who told us their campsite had been destroyed by someone or something,” said Durand. “We heard them coming back about 10 minutes later.”
“We heard them yelling ‘I see it’.”
“We saw the flash from his gun, and he shot maybe 20 yards from the side of our tent into the pitch-black darkness. I was mostly just concerned about him shooting the gun in the middle of the night without him really seeing anything.”
The couple decided to walk back to their vehicle after dialing 911 instead of staying overnight. US regulations prohibit the discharge of firearms within national park boundaries.
Later, park rangers searched the region, but discovered no proof of Bigfoot.
