Elusive Forest Creature 'Bigfoot' Possibly Sighted

The legendary, mythical half-man, half-animal known as ‘Bigfoot’ has always been elusive, with only a few rough sightings over the past few decades – but now, another scrap of evidence points towards its existence. Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, was caught on a fuzzy, shaky video recently uploaded on YouTube, a popular video-sharing service. The 58-second video has been viewed over 111,000 times since it was posted on May 24.The video, which actually shows a pair of hikers trudging down a hill in the State of Washington, caught a few seconds of the elusive creature running in the upper-right corner of the frame. Samantha, the user who uploaded the video, had no idea that she had accidentally caught the world’s most wanted furry ape on tape until she reviewed the footage after returning from the trip.
Viewers on YouTube expressed their doubt over the veracity of the sighting. “That’s not Bigfoot, that’s my drunk Uncle Jethro,” one viewer sarcastically joked. Others were more supportive, although they still had misgivings. “It looks pretty fake, but still cool to watch,” one user commented. Bigfoot’s origins span decades into the past, but there have been precious few sightings of the mythical beast, rumored to live in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. No scientific evidence supports the claim that Bigfoot actually exists.
