Bigfoot: Caught on Tape???

bigfootA video, shot in 2008 by some guys trying to get a nature shot off the ground, which features a few shots of what is believed to be the legendary Bigfoot hanging out on the banks of the McKenzie river in Oregon has been all the rage on the internet as of late.

Check out this very explanatory video before we contiue:

Lurky shadows and out of focus shots...

So far, more of the same shit we always see is getting Bigfoot searchers all worked up into lather...

But, unlike most grainy footage being heralded as the sign of vindication for Bigfoot fans to proclaim, this one may have some ground to at least warrant some deeper looking into.

For one thing, it does not seem to be a hoax.

It appears from the video that the rowers didn't notice the movement on the river bank. Understandably, they were focused on running the rapids, and the cameraman was focused on keeping the other boat in frame. The footage caught of the creature was brief and by happenstance, not the focal point of the shoot.

Bigfoot "experts" (I have no idea exactly how one can go gallivanting about proclaiming oneself to be an expert in a subject that has as of yet proven to even exist, let alone have produced enough study for anyone to have become an expert in it but for the purposes of the article I will go with it) have noted that the look of the creature, the location of the sighting, and the behavior being exhibited by the shadowy figure is consistent with those of the Bigfoot.

Further, the Three Sisters regio (near where this video was shot) is known for it's credible Bigfoot sightings and track finds.

Seems to me like these stories seem to all end the exact same way...

Either the video is a total fraud or it warrents a further look. 

No matter how you slice it though, it seems like we never get any loser to solving this mystery.

It seems silly to me to keep getting all worked up every time some redneck goes shooting at a shadowy figure peekin' through his window or when some glory hunter is trying to make a name for himself with some grainy shots and shaky cam work... But for some reason, with all of that in full knowledge, I still do.

Maybe I am just a fucking rube... a faithful believer with a soft spot for the unexplained...

Or maybe I allow myself these flights of fancy in order to keep a little bit of unknown and magic alive in an ever explained and enlightened world...

I dunno...

But I do know that I saw something in this picture and that is enough for me to keep the faith alive.

The truth is out there ladies and gentlemen...

The truth is out there...
