Is this Bigfoot or just the latest internet viral hoax? Family films 'creepy' silent, monkey-like creature on hike through snow-covered woods

Bitterly cold in January, the north-eastern U.S. state of Maine is not known for its monkey population.

So when a family hiking through snow-covered woods claimed they had spotted a strange, ape-like creature sitting silently in a tree, it was not long before the suggestion that Bigfoot had been spotted was made.

The unidentified family managed to capture what they said was a monkey-like creature on video.

The footage, posted on YouTube by American user webtech88 five days ago, has been continuously clicked on ever since and become one of the first internet hits of 2010.

There's more things than bigfoot I'd be worrying about and if you people only knew the truth you wouldn't dare go out at alone or umarmed for that matter at night.

The Patterson film has been verified as a hoax. Bon Herronous (sp?) was they guy on the suit. Oh and I believe in bigfoot, its just a big ape that hides well, migrates, and lives in unexplored place.(all hoaxes aside)

I agree with you, but I'm nuts. I live down by both pickett state park and south fork, and I don't care a bit to go out in the woods at night on my own property. If it's light out I don't take a flash light. There's been a time or two I've heard some very strange things out in the woods. Not like anything I've ever heard before.

*Yep, that's our brilliant Government and National Park Service in action, fining people for lack of a permit they couldn't even get anyway.

Bigfoot sleuth stomped for leading tour on federal lands without permit

By Perry Chiaramonte
Published March 29, 2012
| FoxNews.com

A man who led tour groups on a hunt for Bigfoot met up with the long arm of the law instead, and got fined for doing business on federal lands without a permit.

Matt Pruitt was leading a group expedition for The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization at the Buffalo National River Park in Arkansas in February when he and his group of 31 people were stopped by two park rangers. Pruitt was slapped with a hefty $525 fine for a lack of a commercial use permit.

Despite being fined for lack of a permit, it would have been likely that Pruitt would not have been able to obtain one.
ďItís highly unlikely that he would have gotten a permit if he applied for one," Bradford said. "Itís not normal practice to issue them for expeditions to find Bigfoot."

So you have made the determination that I am an "idiot" from this thread where I have posted footage of furry unknown
creatures for entertainment and speculative ideas be to shared by others that enjoy a mystery and discovery?

Myself, I have never seen a bigfoot but it makes for interesting tales from those who claim to have seen it and I am certainly not prepared to call all of those people liars.

But when considering the probably millions of trail/game cameras in use today across America without footage of said beasty and that for a large mammal population to survive in the wilds about six hundred or more breeding pairs in the minimum are needed, I do remain skeptical.

On to religion. I wonder, are you one of these cultist members who try to pawn themselves off as a Christian but follow the leadership of someone other than Christ? Because you sound like the offended guilty in your post.

Sorry to take so long to respond. I have intended to several times but have not had the time when it came to mind.

Yes I was aware of the Patterson denial before I posted the link.

Did you watch the linked film? I just don't understand how they made the suit perform subcutaneous muscular striation movements during their day and lack of technology to produce such movements and those mammary glands sure add to the mysterious aspects of the film.

Very interesting stuff.

Hikers take flight when what they thought was a bear resembles Bigfoot

By: Pete Thomas,
GrindTV.com

When the black bear you think you're looking at from a safe distance suddenly stands and begins to resemble bigfoot, and that creature stares directly at you, how do you react?

The hikers who captured the accompanying footage recently in Utah's Provo Canyon seemed to act appropriately: They bolted through the woods, with the camera still running, to get as far away from the creature as possible. "We ran straight to the car after that, leaving our tent and everything behind. It's probably all still up there," states Beard Card, the YouTube user who posted the video.

This is one of the more realistic Bigfoot escapades in some time.

I am skeptical, but will admit I have seen something in the woods that made me second guess what I believe.

But for the record...There has been verified DNA from an unknown primate species found in Northern California and Washington State. Enough evidence in fact, to make "bigfoot" a protected species in 2-3 North Western States and a Canadian province.

Please, describe your sighting of whatever you saw.

I myself have heard things "talking" to each other. It wasn't just 2 random animals calling each other. I was like 2 people having a conversation but not any human language. It was years ago during the winter, and it was late at night. Around 3 am. I can tell you what it wasn't, but not what it was.

I was inside the house and these things were close to the house. I was awake because of insomnia, so I heard them. It was cold at the time, just above freezing, and drizzling rain, so all our dogs and such were quiet. Had they been barking I would never have heard whatever it was.
