Is This Proof Of Bigfoot? 'You Be The Judge', Virginia Man Says

A Virginia man claims he has pictures of the elusive creature known as Bigfoot, and is challenging others to prove that the images are fake, MailOnline reports.

40 year old Randy O'Neal claims that the Bigfoot photographs were taken by his father this weekend during a fishing trip on the intercoastal waterway. Posting a written commentary to YouTube along with the pictures, O'Neal also asserts that the images are proof of an encounter with Bigfoot that his family experienced 25 years ago, according to The Daily Star.

"Finally, a photo that is not blurry nor hidden behind a tree," O'Neal said in the description of the video, calling the image "A clear photo of Bigfoot standing out in the wide open. You be the judge."

O'Neal also describes an alleged encounter with Bigfoot that transpired when he was 15, while camping with his father and a family friend. After observing "a set of red eyes" watching the trio while they sat around a campfire, O'Neal says his father handed him a shotgun and told him to shoot at the Bigfoot, which the elder man thought his son was imagining. Upon firing into the darkness, O'Neal says that the Bigfoot "let out the most blood-curdling scream," crashing through trees on its way to a nearby river. O'Neal claims that his prior Bigfoot sighting has been a story "we could only share with the kids and grandkids."

O'Neal asserts in the video that he is not claiming that the figure is a Bigfoot, calling it "something that I have never seen or heard before nor again in my life." The images were apparently taken with an aging camera phone, and show a hunched, Bigfoot-like figure standing on a log that juts into the water.

The man-like creature known as Bigfoot has been sighted more than 3,000 times since 1921, according to information collected by the BFRO or Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization. Also referred to as Sasquatch, the legendary hairy giant has been dismissed by skeptics as a combination of hoaxes, misidentifications and mass delusions. Still, there are some who assert that Bigfoot exists. As The Inquisitr reported earlier this month, celebrity Jack Black admitted in his Reddit AMA that he believes in Bigfoot.

"Let forensics do their work," O'Neal said, calling the Bigfoot photos "the clearest, most 'non blurred' I personally have ever seen." Could these images possibly be proof of Bigfoot?
