NEGERI SEMBILAN - About 200 Bigfoot-like footprints have been discovered near Kampung Kepis Baru, Kuala Pilah, causing panic among villagers, reported Harian Metro.
Adnan Pungut, 48, claimed he discovered the footprints when he was clearing rubbish and wood at his rubber estate at 3pm on Saturday.
"I immediately informed the others because I was scared. I told the other villagers and all of us went back to the area.
"We found 200 footprints that were about the same size and tried to follow them," he was quoted as saying.
"Based on the footprints, we can assume that the creature has two legs and weighs more than 100kg," he said.
According to Adnan, further checks by villagers found that the creature could be headed towards a nearby forest.
The report stated that the villagers decided not to pursue the creature as they were afraid.
"We will let the authorities handle it as the animal could be endangered," Adnan said.
