Bigfoot might be a Tar Heel...

A North Carolina man from Boone vacationing near Asheville who claims he saw Bigfoot got a big assist from his little dog while capturing video of Sasquatch crossing the road in Henderson County.

Eric Walters wasn't the only one to see the Missing Link - his brown Yorkshire Terrier Zippy did too.

Walters was taking Zippy for a walk on Thursday morning when they spotted 'Bigfoot' walking near some brush on the side of a dirt road, according to the Citizen-Times.

He said: 'Either there's a Sasquatch out there or someone is trying to play a practical joke.'

The large figure captured on the cellphone video shot by Walters can be seen walking into the bushes without acknowledging the camera or Zippy's barking.

People had warned Walters about a bear in the area so he was keeping Zippy extra close when the little brown dog spotted the creature and took off, ABC11 reported.

Walters said: 'Zippy could tell I was scared and got so riled up that he got loose and went after it.

'It turns out the brave little guy chased the Sasquatch away and saved me from a possible encounter.

'I love him more than ever.'

This is not the first time there has been a Bigfoot sighting in the Tar Heel State.

In 2011, Thomas Byers of Shelby shot video of a Sasquatch crossing the road in Rutherford County about 300 miles away from where Walters spotted his Bigfoot.

Byers saw the seven-foot-tall creature leave a field and cross in front of his truck, ABC reported.

He said: 'It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.'
