(WLEX) An investigation is underway after a gunshot was fired over the weekend at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. The shot was fired, a couple of campers reported, after a man allegedly had a Bigfoot sighting .
Brad Ginn tells WLEX that he was camping with his girlfriend Sunday when they were awakened by a man and his son shining flashlights into their tent. This was just after 1 a.m.
The man explained to Ginn that something had destroyed his campsite and that he kept hearing strange sounds, so he was going to investigate because this was “Bigfoot Country.” Ginn's girlfriend also reported hearing a strange whooping noise and that it had been keeping her awake.

The man then warned the couple that if they heard him fire a shot, they should run. A few minutes later, the couple heard the man exclaim loudly, "There it is!" before firing a shot in the direction of their tent.
