Here is another video of what is claimed to be a Bigfoot up close. The uploader goes by the name Robert Cline. Here is what the description says about the encounter:
"On August 2nd, 2014 I spotted the Sasquatch / Skunk Ape in Oleta River State Park.
It was raining all afternoon and there was nobody in the park. I was riding along one of the smaller paths in the "Mountain Bike" region of Oleta. I was about 30 minutes into my ride when I heard some branches breaking along a "nature trail". I figured it was a small animal and I would go take a peek. I got off my bicycle and walked along the trail with my camera out and ready to capture the animal....
The Sasquatch seemed preoccupied with scavenging around and did not notice me. He seemed a little off, perhaps even fevered. The whole episode lasted for ten seconds, and changed my life."
The story sounds pretty good but the video to any normal person would seem like an obvious hoax using a common Bigfoot suit.
Here is the video.
Now, you would think that most people could see that this is a common Bigfoot suit sold in many locations and on the internet. Here is a picture of the suit.
Nothing in the Bigfoot World ever seems to be cut and dry. There seems to always be someone who will support the wildest of claims and the crappiest video. This video is no different.
As I was looking down at the comments, there were a few that called it out quickly as a hoax but there are some who believe it could be real. Here is some screen shots of the comments I find most amusing.
See, this is the type of craziness we have to put up with. People who have seen a real Bigfoot, have found real evidence of the creature, we have to stomach stuff like this and try to remain tolerable.
What causes all of this? I would guess there are a few factors that causes the massive flooding of fake videos and such. The allure of getting on TV has to be a factor, I imagine, and the hopes of getting the "Finding Bigfoot" crew to come to your area. Another factor could the the idea of making money off of youtube views but that don't appear to be the case in this instants as I don't recall any ads being ran. Maybe it's just a "look at me" type of thing.
What can we do? Well, we can try to be somewhat tolerable and help the ones we can and just let the rest wonder off.
As most of you know, this type of fake video is not going anywhere soon. There will be more and more as the popularity of Bigfoot grows.
Oh well, I guess the ones that know better can just try and laugh about it all, which is hard to do sometimes.
Have a great day.
