An intriguing new video taken in Ely, Minnesota, in January 2006, by a person named Richard Sade has surfaced.
The footage is of what Sade, at one point, calls the “Ely Bigfoot.” In another posting, Sade terms this the “Sasquatch Video.” I will call it simply the “Ely Sasquatch Video.”
From the site where it can be seen, this is the background on the Ely Sasquatch Video:
Information regarding the footage. I was on highway 169 in Ely, Northern Minnesota. The date was January 26th, 2006. The time that it happened was around 4:30 a.m.
As I was driving down the road I heard screams comming from the woods. It can be compared to an owl type hooting/cry. This caused me to slow down & to see what it was. I was driving about 5 miles an hour or less when in front of my headlights walked this creature which was on 2 legs.
Its body was covered in brownish fur and around its face area was black. It looked at me through my windshield then made its way over to the left side of the road, where it stood watching me. I grabbed my camera & turned on the ‘nightvision’ setting & started to film.
As I filmed its back was turned to me & it was doing something near the pine tree. Then it walked up the hill into the woods. Which I am angry about because I could only see what showed with my headlights in the film, whereas I saw a lot more without the camera. This thing was huge & my guess it was probably around 6 feet high.
Alot of people agree that this Sasquatch is actually picking up a ‘baby Bigfoot’ before walking up the hill. And its screamming is what I heard earlier.
I have no background or personal information on Richard Sade. Who is he? What was he doing on the road at that hour? Is this a hoax? Does the hair seem rather long on this Sasquatch? Is it a good video? What was the weather like at 4:30 am near Ely, Minnesota on that January day? Have there been other recent sightings from around there? If Bigfoot exists, won’t we expect such new footage to appear? What is actually seen occurring in this video? Is it a human in a suit or an authentic unknown hairy hominoid?
Take a look and consider if this is a worthy new addition to the photographic record for Bigfoot. And what does it tell us?
Any further details on this videotape or Richard Sade would be appreciated.
