    Clearly a bear paw in the video.

  3. Adrian Laine via Facebook responds:

    Black bear, you can see its face at around 29 seconds.

  6. DWA responds:

    Well, barring other evidence pointing toward something else found at the cam site, I don’t see anything ruling out a bear. If I had to guess, that’s what it would be.

  7. Ken Frisbie via Facebook responds:


  8. Ragnar responds:

    Not seeing much here to say its a bigfoot. Bear is probably the best call.

  9. Randy Simpson via Facebook responds:

    Bear. Nothing there to suggest a BF.

  10. Andrew Wiley via Facebook responds:


  11. Martin Kneen via Facebook responds:

    I think it’s more likely a bear, but it’s intriguing cam footage.

  12. Insanity responds:

    I’d have to agree with DWA, nothing to rule out bear.

  13. eyeofstrm responds:

    Looks like a hoax. Hair doesn’t look real to me. Why did camera cut off when subject is still moving in picture?

  14. AreWeThereYeti responds:

    DWA put it pretty succinctly and I agree; Occam’s razor and all…

    However, one additional thought: How high off of the ground was the trail-cam mounted? At 4-6 feet, it’s easily within the reach of a modestly-sized bear. If it was 7+ feet off of the ground, all that comes to mind is a really determined hoaxer or “something” a bit taller than your average bear.

    Any way to find out?

  15. Merrie Gerow Hallman via Facebook responds:

    looks like fur, not hair

  16. dconstrukt responds:

    its a group looking for bears… and… that looks like what they’ve got on video. (shocker!)

  17. springheeledjack responds:

    Judging by what I see, and guestimating in seeing the other trees, I’m guessing the camera is maybe 5ft up…maybe six.

    In addition to the bear and the Bigfoot, the “hair” or fur does have “stuffed animal” quality to it so I can’t rule out a flat hoax either. If someone saw the camera, they could have been mucking with it just for fun.

  18. Cryptidcrazy responds:

    Definitely a bear.

  19. Mike Phillips via Facebook responds:

    Thats a Cinnamon color bear.

  20. PhotoExpert responds:

    Meh, not much to go on. I am not too worried about the fur looking fake or not real, lens distortion from it being out of the focal range of the lens will make it look like that. So I am not calling hoax on the video part of this submission.

    But there are a couple of red flags for me. The first is, why does the video start off with the fur on the camera? Shouldn’t we see some animal approaching the lens? I believe it was edited that way on purpose, to go along with some backstory. So for me, the hoaxing part is not the data collected digitally, but the manipulation through editing to try and make the viewer guess if they are seeing a bear or possible Bigfoot. That is a huge red flag for me.

    Secondly, the video never shows the animal leaving. Why not? Because it was intentionally edited that way, so we never see the actual bear. The video is genuine, but editing that video was intentional and misleading. My second red flag!

    So for me, this is an hoax! It is a video of a black bear investigating the camcorder, having been selectively and intentionally edited to leave out the bear coming into frame and the bear leaving frame. What we see is what the editor wanted us to see, a bunch of fur investigating a camera. That’s not evidence of a Bigfoot. But it is evidence of an intentional hoax.

    Moving on!

  21. Goodfoot responds:

    Occam’s Razor. “The simplest explanation must be the best”.

    A short-sighted mode of thinking, think I. It’s surely the simplest explanation, I will agree. But common sense dictates that sometimes a more complicated explanation must be true, also. Seeing has how there are both simple explanations and complex explanations. On occasion it MUST be the more complex explanation – because the simple explanation is the WRONG explanation. Both explanations clearly DO exist, right?

    As far a a bear, I’m dubious; at the very end, there seems to be a right upper arm and shoulder. And that just doesn’t look like black bear physiology to me..

    It DOES leave room for a hoax, of course, because it cannot be ruled out.

    REVIEWING: Bigfoot or hoax. NOT a bear. It’s simplicity itself, actually…

  22. Goodfoot responds:


    Sometimes a blind pig finds a bottle cap instead of an acorn, right?

  23. mick responds:

    “Both explanations clearly DO exist, right?”–No, wrong. Your argument is based on the assumption that bigfoot exists. Saying that if you examine a enough partial pictures of furry animals, sooner or later one of them has to be a bigfoot is like saying that if you collect enough wings, sooner or later one of them has to be a fairy wing.

  24. dconstrukt responds:

    goodfoot…. not sure what the hell that analogy meant. lol 🙂

    its a bear man… anyone who’s got a 7th grade education or higher can see this…. trust me, they ain’t finding bigfoot bro.

  25. hoodoorocket responds:

    @ Goodfoot; you keep misinterpreting Occam’s Razor, and I’m guessing you are doing it on purpose because (A.) you have proved yourself to be intelligent from your posts, and (B.) because you are as mule-headed as I am ; P

    Anyway, I like a good instigator.

    I’m not saying it couldn’t be bigfoot (well, yes I am- that’s a dadgum bear, look at the 32 second mark, obviously a blurry red gingham picinic basket cover in the lower left of the frame ), I’m just saying Occam’s Razor doesn’t demand that the simplest explanation BE the correct explanation. It suggests that we discount the simplest explanations before exploring the more complicated ones.

    For example, MAYBE your motherboard is fried, but first see if the computer is unplugged before you crack open the case and start poking around in there.

    THAT’s Occam’ Razor. Put another way, if we are guessing the unknown, catalog what IS known about the situation and then strive for the simplest way that the known bits could have got that way. Wait, now it sounds complicated, lol.

    Finally, we will agree on many points, and we will disagree on many points. Hope you know, either way, it is all in fun.

  26. hoodoorocket responds:

    I ramble and miss the pointy thing sometimes.

    Occam’s razor. The emphasis is not “explore the SIMPLEST”, the emphasis is “explore the simplest BEFORE exploring the complicated”… the “before” is the part that might be overlooked when deriding the concept…

    @ Mick; ouch, you cut me, Mick, you cut me deep. I hate well presented logic. Just kidding, I like your argument, it is hard not to agree with you, except that the universe of evidence is not all blurry pictures.

    The Patterson-Gimlin film and some plaster tracks keep me open-minded. If you are not familiar with the best evidence, then your argument seems bulletproof.

    If you are familiar with the best evidence then you know your argument does not stand.

  27. mandors responds:

    1. Black bears are BLACK. Not Brown.

    2. Bears sniffs EVERYTHING. A bear would stick its face in the camera to see if it was edible.

    I want to know how high the camera was placed. The lateral movement of the figure doesn’t look beary to me. The fur looks wrong too.

    Not saying bigfoot, but I don’t think it’s bear. I agree with Goodfoot, there is what looks like an elbow/shoulder movement towards the end. It looks more human than bear. Also, sunset was at 8:22 on the 22nd. Looks a little bright to me, unless it’s the camera.

    But seriously, who doesn’t secretly hope there will be one of these blobsquatchy videos every time they come to this site?! Thanks Craig!

  28. semillama responds:

    Actually, black bears come in a range of colors, including brown. Bear is the best fit, if it’s not just someone waving a Chewbacca arm in front of the camera.

  29. dconstrukt responds:


    are you for real mandors?

    not a bear?

    what is it then an alien?

    And black bears are black eh?

    Newsflash: Black bears come in more colors than any other North American mammal. They can be black, brown, cinnamon, blond, blue-gray, or white.

    seriously… any shumuck with a 3rd grade education can tell its a bear…. and they come in different colors like semillama said.

    Education goes a long way dude… it was a bear… nothing more.

  30. DWA responds:

    In the West, ‘cinnamon’ bears in some places outnumber the black phase.

    Again, barring something else being actually found at the camera site that suggests otherwise, I think that’s what this is.

  31. hoodoorocket responds:

    I hate it when I agree with Dconstruckt… lol.

    At least he has spared us the use of the word “jabroni” lol, which, etymologically speaking, outside of the WWF, is more commonly known as “jaboni”, and better describes a common “yegg” more than a “mook” or a “meatball”.

    It looks like a bear, it has fur like a bear, it is colored liked a bear, and it is behaving like a bear. I’m going to guess it’s a water buffalo.

  32. volmar responds:

    That’s so obviously a BEAR that I consider it a joke. A bad one, but a joke nonetheless.

  33. BronzeSteel responds:

    99% sure its a bear.

  34. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    Pretty sure it’s a bigfoot.

  35. dconstrukt responds:

    hoodoorocket. LOL…. thanks dude…. i was saving the ‘jab’ for something more fitting, everyone with a brain can tell this is a bear… plus the context… its a group LOOKING FOR BEARS…. oh and i mean, black bears are just black? LOL… wow… education people… it’s very important. 🙂

  36. mandors responds:


    “seriously… any shumuck with a 3rd grade education can tell its a bear…. and they come in different colors like semillama said.”

    What direction did the bear come? Wait, that’s right you weren’t there.

  37. dconstrukt responds:

    @mandors… give it up bro… i’d read up on those black bears if I were you. 🙂

  38. deadfoot responds:

    Forgot about the blob, look at the background. I recently discovered Colorado Bigfoot on youtube, and recognize the structures. All those trees laying around in the background are not ALL deadfall. Pause the video around :31. Someone arranged it, and it wasn’t the Parks Department.
