A group of kids followed a "God-awful smell" – a mixture of "rotting deer carcass and skunk" – and came "eye-to-eye with Bigfoot" while camping in California.
The group had been staying the night at Cooks Valley Campground in the community of Piercy, Mendocino County, California, surrounded by huge Redwood trees and dense, empty forest.
The children were allegedly playing in a playground at the site when they caught a whiff of the intoxicating aroma which led to the eight-feet-tall beast.

The 1963 sighting of the mythical beast has been categorised as a Class A sighting by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, a group of “amateur investigators” – who keep tabs on sightings in the US.
Class A sightings of Bigfoot meant they clearly visible and corroborated. This one was reported to the organisation in 1999 by a witness whose initials are “v.e.”
MendoFever, a website that features articles about Mendocino Country, ran a piece looking back at the sighting, 59 years later, in 2022.
Describing the moment the children came to be within yards of Bigfoot, the site states: "The children suddenly caught a whiff of a God-awful smell—a rank mixture of rotting deer carcass and skunk.
"The crew followed the stench with their eyes and found themselves eye-to-eye with the legendary Bigfoot.
"Standing near the treeline, the creature was eight feet tall and covered in brown hair from head to toe. The children had caught the wild man watching them play standing near the base of a redwood."

There have been dozens of reports of Bigfoot in the area, one of which ended in the beast allegedly killing three people on a marijuana farm in Mendocino.
But, for whatever reason, it decided to leave the children in peace.
"The children studied the Sasquatch, both strangers to each other. The creature hung tight to the tree line. Most kids in those parts had been told tales of Bigfoot. This was no bedtime story," MendoFever wrote.
"And then, it was over, Sasquatch simply turned around and walk into the dark, redwood forest."
Multiple children corroborated the account, including the awful smell and the ape-like man staring back at them.
The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization has collected over a dozen sightings of sasquatch in Mendocino County.
