Bigfoot, is that you?
Incredible video that seemingly shows a Sasquatch darting through the woods of Mississippi is going viral, with some saying it’s the best footage of the creature ever captured.
The video was recorded by Josh Highcliffe, who posted it to YouTube, where it has clocked up more than 811,000 views.
In a caption beneath the 2-minute clip, Highcliffe explained that he came across the creature ripping bark off a tree trunk and throwing it to the ground.
He added that he was “afraid” of the hairy beast after stumbling across it on a hunting trip.
“I was out hunting hogs, just sitting in a part of the swamp,” Highcliffe explained, before saying he “heard a noise behind a tree.”
“When I got around, I could not believe my own two eyes. There was this huge black thing crouched by a dead cypress about 50 yards away.”
“I thought it was a hog but saw these big shoulders and a head upright with hands,” the hunter continued. “It looked like it was digging out the stump. My first instinct was to run, I did not even think of shooting.”
The Mississippi man alleged that the creature was seven feet tall and did not remotely resemble a bear.
“I don’t know what to think,” he wondered, asking if viewers could decipher the breed of the beast.
Many took to the comments section to express their astonishment at the footage, with many believing it was Bigfoot.
“This is by far the most convincing video I’ve ever seen on Bigfoot and its possible existence,” one astonished viewer remarked.
“I’m usually a huge skeptic, which pisses my friends off to no end. But I have to say that this is by far the best and most convincing footage I have ever seen,” another commented.
“Honestly, this is probably the best footage ever recorded. Amazing that it’s not talked about more,” a third exclaimed.
Rumors of the existence of a large, hairy, humanlike creature — usually dubbed Bigfoot or Sasquatch — stretch back hundreds of years in North America.
Despite thousands of reported sightings, there has never been a confirmation of the creature’s existence.
Most sightings usually occur in the Pacific Northwest — far from the Mississippi swamps where Highgrove recorded his video.
There have been 676 reported alleged sightings or encounters in Washington state, and 445 in California, according to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization.
