Bigfoot hunters turn to WV

October 28, 2009 7:33:26 AM PDT
A team of Bigfoot enthusiasts is hoping to find the legendary creature in the bogs and barrens of a West Virginia wilderness area. Members of Sasquatch Watch of Virginia went camping in the rugged Allegheny Mountain highlands of the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area with GPS navigators, cameras, voice recorders and plaster of Paris to make casts of huge footprints.

Billy Willard, founder of the group, says they're looking in places where people have reported sightings. He says he has never seen Bigfoot himself.

Bruce Harrington, the group's self-described skeptical member, says he has yet to see convincing proof that the creature exists. The group took plaster casts of suspicious prints but didn't spot the creature during the expedition last weekend.
