They tell CNN that the man, accompanied by his young son, told them they were in “Bigfoot country.” Minutes later, the man fired into the darkness. “The guy said he saw a Bigfoot emerge from the brush and it was coming towards him, so he shot at it,” Ginn says. “We shined a flashlight to see if there was an animal or something. And there was absolutely nothing there.”
The couple—more worried about a man firing his gun at nothing than about potential Bigfoot encounters—decided to hike 5 miles back to their car and call 911. “Mammoth Cave law enforcement rangers responded to an incident involving an individual with a firearm at one of the park’s backcountry campsites at approximately 2:00am on Sunday, July 28,” a park spokeswoman tells the Louisville Courier-Journal.
“Park rangers made contact with all parties involved, and no injuries occurred. While no threat remains in the park, this incident is still under investigation by park law enforcement officials.” The spokeswoman said no charges have been filed, though federal regulations prohibit the discharge of a firearm in the park.
