TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY!
1976, Kings Mountain, South Carolina: Frog Blocks Photographer
Louis Valdiva, an amateur psychic investigator, had set up his infrared cameras in the thickest undergrowth on King’s Mountain. While Valdiva was hoping to capture proof of Revolutionary Era ghosts, instead he was set upon by a curious Bigfoot.
While scanning his surroundings through his camera lens, Valdiva was startled by a large hairy figure leaping toward him. So startled that he fell back into the bushes.
The creature ran past his position several times, hooting and howling in glee. Valdiva could do nothing but cower in the shrubbery, his hands over his eyes, screaming for help.
Finally, the Bigfoot stood and looked at Valdiva curiously. Valdiva gathered his wits enough to reach for his camera. Slowly stretching toward it, trying not to provoke the Bigfoot.
Once Valdiva got the camera and brought it up to snap a photograph a large frog jumped between the camera lens and the Bigfoot. The camera’s shutter noise was enough to scare the Bigfoot, who ran off in the opposite direction.
When Valdiva finally developed his film, all he had was a blurry green smudge where the frog completely obstructed the camera’s view. To many of Valdiva’s family and friends, this was still the best photograph they felt he ever took.
