Bigfoot in South Carolina

The Rawsons live about two miles southeast of downtown Bishopville. They woke up Feb. 28 to find the front fender of their 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan chewed up, bite marks through the front grill, wheels on both sides bitten and metal crumpled in a wad. There was also blood on the front and sides of the car.

Self-proclaimed Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi knows what did it.

While Biscardi hasn't ruled out it was a bear, he thinks it was more likely a Bigfoot. “They’re called different names in the different communities,” he said.

The creatures have three toes, Biscardi said. They range in height from 6 to 9 feet and weigh 300 to 800 pounds. They are hairy. They climb trees and move around by doing what Biscardi describes as knuckle walking.

More than 3,500 Bigfoot creatures exist nationwide, Biscardi said. "They're nocturnal creatures and they’re migratory," he said. "They move from south to north this time of year."

It completely amazes me how much this guy knows about a creature that in all probability doesn't even exist. Certainly, it is completely unknown to science, they've never captured one, they've never found a body or bones or any physical evidence, and the pictures and sightings (and foot prints) are highly suspect. But Mr. Biscardi even knows how many there are.
