The Craven Bigfoot Footage - Enhancement

I'm Johnny come lately to this video but wanted to share my attempt at an enhancement and my thoughts about the video in general.

First the back story to the video - A family out for a drive spots something on the side of the road. They pull the car over and shoot a short video. The video was reportedly shot in Crave, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Here is the video with some enchantments. Some zooms, slo-mo and more.

Now I have some concerns about the video, yes it is somewhat interesting but we should proceed with caution, It seems many are quick to jump out and push videos as being a "real bigfoot" and then they turn out to be faked. This can fuel the hoaxing craze. So let's look at some points.

First, there is no reaction from the person filming this "creature" and we are led to believe he was able to stop his car, get out and start filming all the while the bigfoot is just milling around on the side of the road. Secondly, if you check the person's youtube channel this is the only video they have and it was added 4 months ago. This is normally a red flag. Thirdly, if you go to the connected Google+ account the person is listed as a female, but their name on youtube is Brian Johnson? Fourthly, no one in the Bigfoot community had heard of the person until now.  This would lead a person to think a fake name and/or account is being used.

What about the creature itself? well you really can't see much detail, there is a figure walking along the grass line. It appears to be having a little trouble walking in the terrain. The size of the creature does not appear to be overly large or anything. You can see arm movements as it parts the tall grass and you see some hint of a neck. The figure doesn't appear to be in any kind of hurry to get out of sight as it walks several feet in view and then turns into the weeds. Also, Craven, if you check on google maps, is a pretty populated area, which doesn't mean much, I guess.

In the end, it is a somewhat interesting video with some red flags and it is inconclusive at best. It is worth looking at and taking into consideration but let's not anoint it a 100 percent real bigfoot.

If I had to give an answer -  I would say in my opinion it is most likely a fake/hoax. If by chance the person who filmed it could go back to the area and do a comparison video to help give us some scale, that might help.

Again, this is just my opinion and not a knock on anyone and at least it is something fairly new to look at.
