Through the years, Google Maps has caught some pretty interesting, sometimes frightening images. There's one image on Google Maps caught in Maurice that seriously made me yell out loud when I first saw it.

So there I was, on Google Maps looking at North Vermillion High School to get a picture for a story I was writing. Clicking around on LA-699, I see that appear on the day the Google car drove by, North Vermillion was holding a blood drive as evidenced by the two Vitalant mobile donation busses parked in front of the school.

From there is when I began drifting off into the Googleverse.

Clicking East down LA-699, I realize what a gorgeous day it was when Google mapped this area. Going a little further East, something in the distance caught my eye.

I'm not sure why my brain decided to make me notice what appeared to be a shadow in the distance, but oddly it did.

Could it be because as humans we're kind of hardwired to recognize danger?

Then I zoomed in, and at first, I thought Google had caught a burglar creeping around someone's property in Maurice.

Was it a thief caught in the act on Google? Or, God forbid, is it someone getting ready to do something even worse?

You see it right?

With my phone in one hand calling the Maurice Police Department, I zoomed in as much as I could with my other hand and realized what I was seeing was...

Louisiana Bigfoot Sighting

That's right, there's a Bigfoot in Maurice!

Obviously, it's not a real Bigfoot. I mean, Bigfoot is clearly real, but this one in Maurice is just a cut-out...I think.

I've spoken to a few people around the station who have seen the Bigfoot surprise in person while driving on LA 699, and they all say it made do a big double-take when they saw it.

To whoever is responsible for "The Maurice Bigfoot", thank you. You're definitely my kind of people.
