BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Two women with a career in nursing hope to prove to the world that big foot does exist.
Linda Durden and Jannette Skinner share a fascination with the legendary creature, so when there were reports aired of bigfoot being spotted in the Uwharrie Forest, the pair set out to witness it with their own eyes.
Durden and Skinner traveled across rough terrain, hauling raw deer meat, trail-mix and anything they could think of to lure the hairy creature. The women were inspired by a report that showed a North Carolina man using candy bars as bait, because he said bigfoot has a sweet tooth.
Although the two nurses didn't see bigfoot himself, they did find a footprint they know the Bigfoot Research Organization would consider as evidence. They said the trails in the forest were eerily quiet with no signs of wildlife.
Durden and Skinner plan to return to the Uwharrie Forest in April to try again.
