This reported game camera picture is setting Bigfoot Facebook groups on fire. It has sparked some spirited debate as to just what kind of critter is in the photograph.

Here is what we know, so far, about the image.

The picture comes from South Carolina and it was taken by a trail camera. Many believe it to be a juvenile Bigfoot while others say they see a feral hog.

Here is my thought and some more enhanced pictures.

When I first saw the picture all I could see was a bigfoot/monkey critter sitting on its hind feet. This is what many many others see as well.

There even appears to be a "monkey" type face on the creature.

And several people commented that it was a escaped monkey. But I don't think that is what it is.

I was wondering, at first, how in the world are people seeing a hog?

Then I studied the image more and sure enough, there is a very high probability that this is a hog.

We know that light and shadow can trick out eyes, and out mind tries to make sense of things like this, so more study of the image was for sure needed.


Check out this out line by Jeff Stewart. The very tip of the snout is blocked by the tree limb in the foreground.

Still not convinced?

No worries they're many who are not.

But after careful study, I pretty sure this is a hog.

I think many are seeing the pig ear on the right side of the image and thin it is an arm. The makes it appear, along with the back leg, as two arms touching the ground.

What would really solve the mystery with 100 percent accuracy is the before and after pictures from the game camera.


In my final opinion  I think this is a trail camera picture of a wild hog. I will admit it is for sure easy to see why many think it is a Bigfoot.

What do you see? Bigfoot, Hog, Monkey or something else?

  1. more likely a deer or hog than anything else. Unless it is a 100% cast iron CLEARLY identifiable picture of a Sasquatch, then best to think that it is not pictured.

  2. too bad i cant post a photo on here, i did a comparison with a chip photo in the same pose, remarkably similar!
