Thomas Byers snapped this photo of "Bigfoot" along Golden Valley Church Road in Rutherford County on March 22, 2011.
North Carolina's most famous Bigfoot sighting was back in in the winter of 1979. According to the Gastona Gazette, a nickname was assigned to the sightings, Knobby, based on the multiple sightings around the Carpenter’s Knob area.
North Carolina is a recent hot spot of sorts and as we have reported before, is where Animal Planet kicked off its, yet-unnamed, new Bigfoot TV Series. It is also famous for Mike Greene's Squeaky Thermal Video.
WNCN is reporting a new sighting of "Knobby" based on a 5 sec video sent to them.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Shelby man says he has captured video of Bigfoot.
Thomas Byers e-mailed NewsChannel 36, saying he saw Bigfoot walk across Golden Valley Church Road in Rutherford County Tuesday evening.
Byers' says he was about 15 to 20 feet away from the creature when he captured a five-second video.
"It ran across the road and into the woods right in front of us and I was able to film it," Byers wrote. "In the short video you can hear it snarl or growl at me." -- by NewsChannel 36 Staff at wcnc.com
Byers goes into greater detail of the encounter, here is an excerpts below:
As I filmed it crossing the road it turned its head towards me and snarled or growled at me as it ran across the road. It was truly one of the most amazing sites I have ever seen. It was at one point only 15-20 foot from me and it happened so fast and shook me up so bad that I really didn't understand what I had seen until it was up the side of the mountain and out of sight. You can watch the video below of what I saw and you can hear its snarl or growl on the video as it crosses the road in front of the truck I and Carolyn were riding in.
One thing I know is the smell of it was horrid. It smelled like a cross between road kill and a skunk. And it did not like the fact that I was there on the road with it. In the video you can hear it snarl or growl at me as it crosses the road. -- Thomas Byers
