If you happen to be in or around western North Carolina, you should watch out for Bigfoot...and don't shoot him!

There was an alleged sighting of the ole Sasquatch on Friday and now the police in Greenville, South Carolina put out a strong message: If you spot Bigfoot, please don't shoot him.

Below is the post on their Facebook page.

A guy named John Bruner was out with seven friends on Friday evening and says he spotted the beast. He says it disappeared after the two made eye contact.

“I was able to see details of the creature...like the face, and the hair was matted and stringy. The eyes were farther apart than human eyes,” Bruner said in a Facebook post.

Well, buddy, it appears you may need to go check them eyes.

But the bigger question is, "why would you go out at night in a Bigfoot costume?"
