Sasquatch or mangey Bear ?

http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/...1&d=1193848773

All over the internet this morning. Guy took it off of his game camera.

Article says it could be baby sasquatch, or a really mangey bear. It is hard for me to tell since most of the ones I shoot are MUCH bigger.

What do you guys think?

Rehash of 70's Bigfoot footage?

Looks like a guy in a fur suit to me.

Maybe they are remaking 'The Legend of Boggy Creek'.

Could be an adolescent kid with a hormone problem . I dunno, I am not much for mysteries, and do find it very hard to imagine a large creature in North America that somehow has escaped being found, dead or alive over roughly 400 years of (European anyways) settlement.

But, I must admit that's an awfully svelte bear, and at least in that poor angle and lighting, he doesn't seem to have the protruding muzzle I'd expect to see. At this point, my money is still on it being either a prankster's work or just an odd bear/photo angle.

I'm up for hoax, as usual...bigfoot doesn't exist.

But, if he does, I think we should breed and release so we can have a season !

Hoax. Limbs too long and narrow to be a mangey bar. Even the arse doesn't look quite like a chimp.

Aliens!

The wife and I died laughing over this one. We have a neighbor that is way into aliens, Elvis is alive, bat Boy, etc. He believes it to be a 'furry alien tripod creature'.

Ted, keep your aluminum foil helmet on, man!

That is really creepy!

It looks like one of those things you can't classify. I'm going to pretend it's a drunken teenager and just move along.

If the government can't find ten million illegal humans who shop at Wally World and live in houses there could be thousands of bigfoots (bigfeet?) out there and we'd never know.

To me, a guy that has seen bears at bait stations, in the wild, and in the trash cans, it looks like a bear cub.

How about a not-so-extinct short faced bear? It was a long legged skinny critter which has supposedly been dead for about 10,000 years. Consider that Australopithecus and other such human-like critters have been dead for maybe thirty times that time maybe Sasquatch is really this species of bear?

So the pics were taken by a trail camera, the same one from the same location, apparently with no human involvement, and about 28 minutes separating the bear cubs from the supposed bigfoot.

Notice the object (squarish grey thing partially covering the muzzle of the closest bear) at the bottom center of the image of the bear cubs. Now notice the same location for the supposed bigfoot images. Some sort of rectangular black object has materialized over the grey squarish thing.

Unless somebody placed the object there, how would such an object mysteriously appear?

Me thinks it is a faked image.

Also, I am curious about the "mangey" adjective. There is no way to ascertain from the image if the animal has mange or not.

The object that has "appeared" is the salt lick based turned on it's side by the Bigfoot or the little bears It is visible in the pick with the little bears but is standing upright.

I have alot of black bear experience and have seen a few mangey bears before and I will have to say, as much as I would rather believe it was bigfoot, that this pic looks just like a young bear with mange.

Interesting, but seems perfectly plausible.

Still, the whole thing is hokey. "Unclassified primate" translates into human in a ape suit more so that I would guess it would mean bigfoot.

Besides, bigfoot is supposedly bipedal based on tracks and other images/video. The "unclassified primate" is shown being quadrupedal.

This sort of phenomenon is funny to hear about. We generally recognize UFO to mean extra-terrestrial flying craft from outer space as opposed to recognizing the object as being unidentified and flying. When a camera catches an animal that doesn't look right or there are some strange deaths, we have Chupacabra or Bigfoot. Voices or noises in the night, ghosts. For whatever reason, we gravitate toward believing the unproven is real and scant evidence is accepted as proof.
