Four "Bigfoot" creatures have been captured on camera apparently stalking bison near the Old Faithful geyser at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. The footage, from the streaming webcam of the U.S. National Parks Service, has sparked an online debate between Bigfoot believers and skeptics.
Mary Greeley posted to her YouTube channel on Dec. 29, a National Park Service footage from the Old Faithful Geyser Streaming Webcam. The footage was only supposed to show bison arriving at the Yellowstone National Park's Old Faithful geyser. But viewers were quick to notice something more interesting than bison in the background of the footage -- a Bigfoot family or a group of Bigfoot hunters stalking bison for dinner?
An analyst, ThinkerThunker, was shown the footage. He posted it to his YouTube channel, and in response to skeptics who argued that the four Bigfoot could be cross-country skiers, park employees or big men in "monkey suits," ThinkerThunker posed the question whether any would "risk death by buffalo to pull off a Bigfoot hoax?"
"Would you risk death by buffalo to pull off a Bigfoot hoax? In this clip we see four big, furry somethings (Bigfoot) stalking four buffalo in Yellowstone National Park?"The footage shows clearly "four big, furry somethings" apparently stalking buffalo. ThinkerThunker is sure that the "four big, furry somethings" are Bigfoot.
"Are we witnessing some ancient scene that has been going on for thousands and thousands of years? You decide."Below is a video analysis of the original footage by ThinkerThunker.
Some agreed with ThinkerThunker that the bipedal creatures walking in the snow could be Bigfoot. But unfortunately, the evidence, as usual, is tantalizing because the video cuts away before we are allowed a better view of the mysterious figures that appear to be stalking bison in the snow.
Are Bigfoot supposed to be vegetarians or meat-eating hunters?
But some skeptics suggested that the four figures could be "computer graphics or some form of editing."
"Mary, is it possible to get the original recorded copy of this video from Yellowstone National Park? The one subject that walks out by its self at 3:05 appears to cast a shadow, so that to rules out CG or other editing."Do you agree with ThinkerThunker that this footage shows Bigfoot?
"I found the full recording in time lapsed format from another Geyser observation team that archives all Geyser records on their YouTube channel: Geyser Observation And Study Association."
"Shadows don't rule out CG. I've been doing CG special effects for over 20 years and I promise, it is very easy to add a convincing shadow in. The original tape should at least rule that out."
