Navajo Nation police dismiss 'Bigfoot' sighting

Navajo Nation police say a reported sighting of "Bigfoot" in Nenahnezad, New Mexico, was actually a bear.

Residents of the area told police they saw a large, hairy creature. Navajo Nation Rangers took a cast of the footprints left by the "Bigfoot" and determined it was a bear.

Navajo police said "Bigfoot" doesn't exist in Navajo culture but "Yetso" does. Ye�tso is a giant creature that helps bring rain.
