Port Neches abuzz after Big Foot sighting

Posted: Updated:
PORT NECHES, Texas -

Anita Bienvenu cradles a camera and scans the foliage on the far bank of the Neches River. She's waiting for a glimpse of a bigfoot. She says she's heard one, she thinks.

"We were standing there a while ago, and we heard a growl. I'm not sure if it was from the plant or what."

She's not alone. People from the area are swinging through the Oak Cluff Cemetery in Port Neches to see if they can get lucky.

"Everyone's talking about it right now," says Drake Broussard.

"Phones, twitter, instagram, tv, teachers are talking about it. It's everywhere."

It's all because of an article in a local newspaper complete with a photo taken by a man named David Arceneaux.

He told the paper. he saw two bigfoots standing by the river, tossing rocks into the water. He took the picture on his cell phone.

We spoke with Mike Mayes from the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy.

He says there have been a number of sightings along the river, just not that close to the city.

He's seen the pictures, but says he can't draw any conclusions one way or the other.

"Like a lot of the pictures that allegedly show the animals, it's too far away, too pixelated, fuzzy and indistinct," he says.

The picture was shot back in December, so he says it's not worth his group's time to go out and investigate. Too much time has passed to be able to gather any evidence.
