Quick, get your cameras out! Because there’s been a reported Bigfoot sighting in the Michigan woodland.
New video footage, which was captured in early July by a kayaker on the Cass River, is being scrutinized by conspiracy theorists and scientists showing what many believe is Sasquatch.
According to the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, who uploaded the video to YouTube, the footage was sent in by a man identified as “Eddie V” who told the organization that his cousin shot the 4.7-second video.
“Not sure what it is, but I have sent it to a few people to see what they say,” Eddie told The Sun. “Some say it’s Bigfoot carrying baby Bigfoot. Others say it’s Bigfoot carrying a deer.”
Many of the detractors say they were frustrated with the length of the video, questioning why the kayaker only shot for 4 seconds.
A 2020 report on Bigfoot sightings by state holds Michigan at two-hundred-and-twenty, Washington remains No. 1 for sightings by a wide margin while Nevada has the fewest sightings per capita.
The footage shows a hulking brown figure, which appears to be carrying something, wading across the Cass River.
Investigator Kyle Shaw of Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization (RSMO) inspected the footage stating that he remains unsure of the credibility of the clip. “I’m not saying this is Bigfoot, and I’m not saying it isn’t.”
“This is obviously shot with a cell phone at 880×656 resolution. It’s thirty frames per second. It isn’t the greatest footage. It’s all we have to go with so you be the judge on what you think it is. I don’t know what it is.”
He continued: “A lot of what’s going on in this says to me it’s something moving through the river, pushing a wake, and it appears to be carrying an infant. The infant’s head is behind the mother or father. It must be lying on the left shoulder and kind of in the back, but you can see the torso, leg, and foot of the baby. Just incredible.”
If you’re still not convinced, not to worry! Because you’re not the only one. The majority of commenters on the Youtube video were unimpressed: “It’s a man in waders with a mosquito net over his head,” one commenter suggested.
Another said: “The major problem for me is: why is the video so short? If I saw that thing, I’d definitely continue filming or make a second video of it immediately after the first.”
Over the past fifty years, there have been over 10,000 claimed sightings of the mythical creature. Some lawmakers in states like Oklahoma presented a bill that would create a Sasquatch “hunting season” to draw tourists and Bigfoot enthusiasts to the state. Some lawmakers even suggested permits being created for hunters keen to catch the elusive creature.
Do you think this could be the real deal? Or is it just another feeble attempt at trying to revive Bigfoot’s name?
