Supposed Bigfoot sightings are a fairly common occurrence these days but every once in a while, I hear about one that captures my attention. Recently, a group of hikers produced video that makes their "sighting" worthy of attention.
Bigfoot, or Sasquatch as it is sometimes called, seems to be quite popular these days. Sightings occur all across North America and there is even an Animal Planet TV series called Finding Bigfoot. In spite of all of this attention, no physical evidence of Bigfoot's existence has ever stood the test of scientific scrutiny and validation.
In this case, a group of hikers in the Provo area are videoing a dark animal that they presume to be a bear. Things change when the animal apparently stands up onto its hind legs and according to the hikers, turns to look at them. They all leave in a mass scramble to get to safety and according to one of the hikers, Beard Card, left their all of their camping gear and tent behind.
In my opinion, there are probably three possibilities as to what the "creature" is. First, the object filmed could be a bear, which are somewhat common to the area. Second, the object could be nothing more than a human trying to look like Bigfoot, without judgment on whether or not the hikers were in on the hoax. Finally, the object could be the elusive Bigfoot creature.
I have a strong opinion on what I think the object is, but will withhold judgment until I hear your opinions. Take a look at the video below, as well as an enhanced version, and post a comment about what you feel the object is. No personal attacks are allowed on other commenter's opinions please.
