SW Virginia ‘wood booger’ reports raise interest in Bigfoot

NORTON, Va. — Could there be a Bigfoot right here in our own back yard?

It seems a possibility. There was enough interest from sightings that the television show “Finding Bigfoot” made a stop in Southwest Virginia in 2011 and filmed an episode concerning events in Wise and Washington counties, with an emphasis on the High Knob area.

A search for Bigfoot sightings results in numerous websites and organizations that focus on the subject, several in Virginia alone.

Details on the search for the 'wood booger' are available at
