Sasquatch Watch of Virginia director Billy Willard made this cast of what he believes is a Bigfoot footprint.

Humans have long been fascinated by the idea of Bigfoot. And in our region, few have pursued this mysterious creature with as much zeal as Billy Willard, a Virginia native whose interest led to the founding of Sasquatch Watch of Virginia. Rebecca Sheir heads to an undisclosed wilderness area in Fauquier County -- where Willard and his sons reportedly encountered the elusive beast -- and hears about other reported sightings around the region.
