This video screamed hoax to me from the beginning, but I’m not one to dismiss anything outright without at least examining the evidence. Here are some frames from the video, enlarged and sharpened, just before the “creature” turns to run away [see below].
You can see, in my opinion, rather clearly in the second frame that the eyes appear to exhibit a mask effect of showing some skin around the eye of the person in the mask. On the other hand I suppose the mouth could possibly be opening, which would be difficult to achieve in a mask. No frames offered a more clear image of the creature than the two I enlarged here.
In my opinion it seems to be a hoax, but it’s a neat video anyway.
Meanwhile, Theush asks us to…
Check this out [see below]; a closer more detailed look at the video.
It is time for a vote. Register your opinion.
Do you want to hear more about this?
Should YouTube “Bigfoot” videos be posted here?
What should be done about this phenomena?
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
