‘Bigfoot’ gatecrashes Michigan nature webcam (VIDEO, POLL)
Footage from a Michigan webcam watching over an eagle’s nest has caused an online frenzy because of a shadowy figure in the background that some claim is proof that the mythical Bigfoot creature exists.
According to legend, the ape-like creature, otherwise known as Sasquatch, is said to stalk the forests of North America.
The prehistoric beast has been the subject of numerous alleged sightings and hoaxes for decades, including an incident in 2012 when a man attempted a Bigfoot prank on a Montana highway and was fatally struck by two cars.
Now a clip from a webcam aired on CarbonTV has sparked suggestions that the mythical giant apeman is at large near the small rural village of Beulah, Michigan.
That Michigan Bigfoot sighting story in @AP_Oddities is not unexpected in Beulah about 30-miles of my hometown in Manistee. I've seen them.— Ryan Maue (@RyanMaue) October 6, 2016
This is not a joke. Must see video: Bigfoot possibly spotted on wildlife webcam https://t.co/f0UzFMjE6r— DwaynePhillips (@DwaynePhillips) October 7, 2016
A segment of the sighting has been posted on Youtube. It shows two baby bald eagles feeding in a tree top nest, before an unidentified person or creature appears in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Comments under the blurry video are unsurprisingly mixed, with some viewers declaring it a real live Sasquatch sighting and others calling it a hoax.
“Nothing but a man in a cheap monkey suit,” one person said.
Another added: “Awesome footage… I agree that this is a Bigfoot.”
Just when you think Big Foot is gone he makes an appearance on a webcam monitoring eagles. https://t.co/zjiYHvyDeL— Voice In The Box (@Voice_InTheBox) October 7, 2016
The images were captured close to the Platte River State salmon hatchery.
Ed Eisch, the production manager at the fish farm, told the Detroit Free Press that the “out of focus” footage is inconclusive since the camera “wasn’t set up to be focused on the ground.”
What do you think? Did the eagle chick webcam catch sight of Sasquatch or is it all a hoax?
