Much like the Loch Ness Monster, the Abominable Snowman, and my girlfriend, many people believe Bigfoot doesn’t exist.
Luckily for us though, there are people out there willing to track down these rare creatures and try and prove, once and for all, that they are definitely real.
The most recent video of what is believed to be Bigfoot, was captured earlier this year in the foothills of North East Provo, Utah.
Local huntsman Austin Craig caught the beast on camera on January 2, as the creature – or a really big person – moved along the side of a mountain.
While filming the incident, Austin says to his friends:
Hey seriously, look how big it is! He’s just chilling, I don’t think it is a human, I think it’s a Sasquatch, because look, he’s way far back on the mountain but look how huge he is!
Though it’s not exactly a close-up encounter with Bigfoot, there is definitely a big, Sasquatch-esque animal on the mountain. Or maybe a really big guy wearing some sort of suit.
For some reason, Austin drives further away to try and prove how big the creature is, rather than get closer for a better view…
We drove way down the hill and look how big that person still is! With my own eyes I can see him perfectly…
See for yourself:
Later that day, Austin and his buddies went back to the spot where they saw the unidentified animal, and this time went up onto the mountain to try and find some more evidence.
Despite not actually reaching the same point on the mountainside, they did find tracks in the snow of some sort.
Austin also compared the size of what they spotted to the size of themselves on the mountain, viewed from the same distance. I wouldn’t say it’s definite proof that Bigfoot lives in Utah, but whatever they caught on camera is certainly a lot bigger than a human.
Check out the follow-up video:
Another video, uploaded by the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, explored the site in even more detail.
Heading up the mountain just two days after Austin and his friends, the RMSO went right up to exact point they believe Bigfoot was seen. They apparently found ‘Bigfoot tracks’, and say the creature that was seen was ‘three or four times bigger’ than the man standing in the same spot.
