Describe sighting in detail: I spent the past few days debating whether or not to post this video online and only decided to do so after showing the video to my father, who encouraged me to publish it.

This past Saturday I was enjoying a nature walk alone at the Strathcona Provincial Park on Vancouver Island when my walk was interrupted by a large rock thrown in my direction. I scanned the area thinking it was kids but saw nothing, so I continued along. I only made it a few steps though before I heard a loud cracking sound, like a branch being snapped from a tree or something. I turned and spotted something moving in the foliage. This something was on all fours and hiding behind some large ferns, I raised my arms and let out a yell (Thinking it was a bear and hoping to scare it off) but that's when this something stood up. I instantly became overwhelmed with fear, this wasn't a bear. It was more like a gorilla. As it turned and began to leave I quickly pulled out my DSLR and shot this video. The way it walked completely freaked me out, it was almost human. I cut the video after I lost track of it and honestly I didn't want to hang around. I was concerned that their may have been more of these things as this one wasn't huge in size, it seemed almost young and I was concerned that maybe an adult one of these was around.

Tom: After viewing the video a few time, and having serious doubts about it. I replied to the submitter: "..at this point it appears to be a suit. ....is there a chance you could have been pranked?"
I also showed them this photo.

Here was the reply by the submitter: "I don't know about pranked, though maybe some bored kids? I didn't get the greatest look at it, much like the video. It was far away but I can tell you it chilled me to the bone once I realized that this wasn't a bear. I won't be returning to that park any time soon."

- End Report -

After viewing this repeatedly and running it on some software, so I could zoom it in, I'm pretty sure this is a person in a suit. Now, did the person who submitted this report and videoed the "creature" know it was a guy in a suit? I do not know but at this point it appears to be nothing more that a cheap bigfoot suit and an attempt to get youtube view.

  1. There are many stories about juvenile Sasquatch who interact with solitary humans, with whistling or exhibiting rock throwing and bluff displays such as branch snapping. Not hard to imagine one practicing territorial skills. Too bad we couldnt see lower half of the body to see what kind of stride it carried.

  2. Pretty cool! Looks like a juvenile to me.
