(Newser) – A North Carolina man who chased a hairy, six-fingered creature off his property, says he's sure he was dealing with Bigfoot. Tim Peeler says he saw the 10-foot-tall bearded creature after hearing grunts and screeches outside his mountain home. "I rough-talked him and said, ‘You get away from here,'" Peeler told NewsChannel36. Police have filed the case as a suspicious person report, but they say they're keeping an open mind.
