    Looks good!

  2. spock82 responds:

    Looks like a gorilla in a zoo to me. I don’t see anything that makes me think this is an authentic Bigfoot type creature.

  3. vamelungeon responds:

    I have to assume that since they are so rarely seen by humans that sasquatches are stealthy. So here we have a stealthy animal beating the underbrush like the beaters that were employed by some hunters in the past. Looked like a guy in a hoodie to me, and I thought I saw glasses or goggles.

  4. Old Philosopher responds:

    The rhythmic, repetitive movements of that duration don’t make a whole lot of sense in the way of animal behavior. Anybody want to guess what it’s doing?

  5. chadgatlin responds:

    At the distance and the resolution that we see it looks to me like you would be able to see more detail if it were an animal.

  6. DWA responds:

    I won’t say it screams “gorilla in zoo.” Just kinda suggests it.

    Old Philosopher: incarceration in zoos triggers notably repetitive behavior in animals. Note the tiger pacing, precise same route, paw by paw, turns identical. Note the polar bear swimming: push with right rear; turn with left front; turn with right front; push with right rear…

  7. springheeledjack responds:

    This is actually a great example of how a person’s mind works to figure things out when they don’t know what they are seeing.

    My first impression, too, was of a gorilla in a zoo. Just the repetitiive behavior and the dome shape of the head. But then as vamelungeon points out, it looks like a guy in a hoodie. And if I see it from certain angles that’s exactly what it looks like.

    As I said, it’s a great example of how the mind works to make sense of the unknown–drawing in images from our memory to try to pigeon hole new information. On the surface, this looks like an argument for the scoftic position of people mis-identifying claims of Bigfoot and just mistaking guys in hoodies or bears for our cryptid.

    However, that only stands up in a few cases and really only fits when someone sees something in a fleeting look, or a really obscured look (as with this video). The longer the sighting, the more details a person gets, the more the mind is able to rule out known creatures/people/etc.

    Which is why I buy many of the encounters–because there are people seeing the Bigfoot full bodied, walking out in the open or they are watching it for a span of time that allows their mind to rule out the knowns and are left with the “unknown”–Bigfoot.

    “So here we have a stealthy animal beating the underbrush like the beaters that were employed by some hunters in the past.”

    Well, signs indicate that the creatures sometimes hunt cooperatively, with some driving the prey, and others waiting in ambush. Beating the brush in that case would make sense.
    But from the video, assuming it’s a real creature, I can’t tell if it’s beating the brush, or humping a stump.

  9. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    What signs indicate they hunt cooperatively?

  10. eyeofstrm responds:

    One question. WHY DID SHE STOP FILMING ?????

  11. dconstrukt responds:

    lol…. so the fake grunting noises… are those supposed to be real too?

    morons need to learn how to hoax better… animal’s fur isn’t typically solid black, light hits it, there’s shading, and natural variation in colors… unless you buy it at the costume store 🙂

    What signs indicate they hunt cooperatively?
    I heard of at least two accounts where activity was noted during the night by way of vocalizations, and breaking underbrush. The following day sign indicated that 3-5 of the creatures ambushed deer. The kill was found near where tracks indicated a creature had hidden behind a tree while the associated tracks along the deer’s back trail lead investigators to believe the deer had been herded along the trail into the ambush. FWIW….

  13. chadgatlin responds:

    There is no visible sheen even with light obviously shining in on the flora. To me, this indicates that it is not animal hair we are looking at.

  14. Grasshopper responds:

    I agree with dconstrukt and chadgatlin. The hair has no color variance in it, it does not have any time of sheen from the light, and there is no movement to it, like 3-6 long hair would have, especially as much as that being was moving.

    I also have the same question as eyeofstrm, why did the woman quit filming? What makes it very suspicious to me is how close the woman actually is to this thing, and it doesn’t seem to notice her, or care? Did he not see her, or smell her? I find that very hard to believe. And the woman herself seems to hold the camera very steadily. Almost all the other videos we see are jerky and or fumbling, which we are usually complaining about, but this is almost too calm. As much as we gripe and moan about the video fumblers, they almost make for more believability because it suggests the person is caught by surprise, scared, or moving. It’s like this woman is just filming a short snippet in a zoo somewhere.

    Many things about this clip leave me with more questions.

    Looks like a Butchy Kidd youtube clip but ok??? ;p
