Revelatory new footage appears to show a Bigfoot-esque creature near a hiking trail in California.
The bizarre moment the unidentified animal was seen swinging through trees was caught on video by Jake Gardiner, who works at La Crescenta in Los Angeles County, close to the site.
He said he felt something was watching him around the woods, revealing to KTLA:
At first I heard a bunch of strange noises in the trees. Figured it was just some types of bird or something like that.
One problem: birds aren’t big ape-like bastards. Jake then decided to get out his phone and record what he was witnessing.
You can definitely see a torso and four limbs moving around and swinging around. It’s a pretty obvious kind of motion.
Authorities over at the Department of Fish and Wildlife reckon the animal could be a breed of great ape which could cause potentially heinous danger to the public.
Spokesman Andrew Hughan told KTLA:
We think that it’s a pretty good possibility that it is some kind of ape.
These animals are incredibly strong. And they can very easily kill or seriously injure a person because – if it turns out to be an ape – this animal is scared, hungry, out of its element.
People import the animals as illegal exotic pets. Now, that’s not great, but what happens is the animals can get out of control and they either escape or they get too unruly and the owners just let them go.
Do you think this if bigfoot? Do you think there is a bigfoot? If so, how many are there? They all seem to look different and display contradictive levels of athletic ability. Take a look at his vintage sighting of ‘bigfoot’ caught on film. He’s just walking. Not arsed over trees.
We all love an urban legend, though, don’t we? I’m holding out.
