Suspicious Print Found in Medoc Mountain State Park, NC

After receiving multiple reports of a bipedal creature crossing the road near Medoc Mtn State Park, CPM (Crypto Para Museum) decided we should go out and snoop around.

The print was 8" by 9" from what we could tell. It appears to have 3 toes or pads, and after casting, it revealed claws or toenails.

When we entered the park, we saw that they had been staging controlled burns, especially along the trails. Most of the ground around the trails was charred and some areas were still smoking.

Within minutes of entering the parks picnic area, and deciding which trail to take, we noticed a suspicious print.

Since we brought a cast kit with us, we were able to cast on the spot.

Luckily we had our casting kit with us, and we were close enough to the parking lot to make it easy to get supplies. The print was obviously fresh. While waiting for the cast to set, we tested the nearby ground and were

unable to make any mark due to the dryness of the substrate, so whatever made this mark was very heavy.

After the cast set, we brought the cast to the park’s ranger station and they were incredibly helpful, showing us animals that they had on display to give us an idea of foot size, however they were unable to identify the print, as the largest creature spotted in the area is the occasional black bear which has a print size of up to 5″ across, not the 8″ width that this print has.

We are posting photos to see if anyone can shed any light on

This photo shows that there are at least 3 or 4 claws or nails, and the red lines show the indentations along the print.
