August 1, 2006 -(CBS 3) CLEAR BOGGY CREEK, Oklahoma --An old legend is emerging from the woods once again. Over the last week there have been multiple sightings of a "Bigfoot" in rural Oklahoma.
Store owner Larry Watson set-up cameras hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive creature. He captured several photos that show a large, hairy animal wandering about a wooded area.
While it is difficult to determine if it is a Bigfoot, a bear or a joke from the snapshots, two children said they spotted
“It was tall, it was brown, it had long shaggy hair, long legs and long arms,” said 13-year-old Morgan Whatley.
Officials initially passed Whatley's claim off as a case of an over-active imagination, until another sighting several days later.
Police said a woman in her 50's suffered an anxiety attack and had to be transported to a local hospital after spotting a sizable hairy creature in her yard.
In early July, there were several reports of a Bigfoot seen near Old Camp Maxey in Lamar County.
