A Squatchy Photograph: Bigfoot or Bear?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 17th, 2014

This week on Finding Bigfoot, the team travels to Virginia to investigate a bunch of stories concentrated in a specific area along the Appalachian Mountains, where there is plenty of woods, deer, swamps, and other environmental factors that make it the perfect place for a Sasquatch to call home. First up, they meet with Roger Williams whose trail camera captured a large figure that he couldn’t identify. The Finding Bigfoot team heads out to assess whether this photograph contains evidence of a Bigfoot or a bear. Due to certain characteristics such as the length of the arm and foot of the creature in the photograph there is much discussion amongst the team about the figure’s identity.

  1. mandors responds:

    The musculature seems wrong for a bipedal primate. Where are the calf muscles? Where is the Achilles tendon? In the arm I don’t see deltoids in the shoulder, nor traps or lats in the back.

    Thinking bear.

  2. cryptokellie responds:

    This image is of a juvenile bear with coat loss or mange. Look at the absence of buttocks and small stubby tail. The humped shoulder area is very much in line with a bear’s physiology.
    Google “bear with mange” and you’ll find many similar images to confirm this. I think the picture is nice, what is hard to take is the inane comments of the “Team” on the video. I do not watch this ridiculous show so I wonder if this is the usual level of commentary in it. Especially from the large man with blank stare.

  3. sasquatch responds:

    Bear…zoom in on the front paw on the log. Those are not fingers. This is a thin bear with a bit of mange like mentioned above.

  4. Insanity responds:

    I am surprised this was even being considered as possibly a Bigfoot, even for Finding Bigfoot. A short tail is visible, the hindlimbs appear too short compared to the body length for a bipedal animal.

  5. sasquatch responds:

    Hey Finding Bigfoot also entertains the idea that- that Vermont owl photo was a bigfoot with a baby. It’s clearly an owl flying away from camera -probably toward ground.

  6. Dr Kaco responds:

    I can imagine there are much clearer images taken from the trail-cam. But let’s pick the most obscure one right!!? Just an observation. Same with the Pennsylvania pics…
