Skunk Ape Caught on Video

A video that appeared online two months ago and supposedly shows a Skunk Ape, or Florida Bigfoot, is now making rounds on the internet.

The video is 22 seconds long and you can see something moving very far in the distance. Other than that, you can't really tell exactly what it is.

The Tampa Tribune posted an article about the video on the 12th:

"PLANT CITY - A video that purports to show a large, man- or ape-like creature in Alderman's Ford park has been making the rounds on the internet.
"The 22-second video, taken from a great distance and without commentary, depicts a furry, dark figure walking along the tree line before disappearing into the forest. The footage was reportedly shot at the county park off County Road 39.
"The video has been posted on a number of websites and Facebook pages that track sightings of bigfoot, a legendary - and many scientists say nonexistent - type of creature that has reportedly been spotted in some form all over the world.
"A spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Parks Department said she hadn't heard of any reports of bigfoot in any county park.
Laurie Champion, a Pasco County resident who runs a website,, that among other things tracks bigfoot sightings, said she hadn't heard anything about the Plant City bigfoot. Her site includes links to video of bigfoot at Lettuce Lake Park near Tampa and Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park near New Port Richey.
"While Champion believes in bigfoot and said she encountered one in 1992 while hiking with a friend, she said many bigfoot photos and videos are fabricated.
"'If you look, you'll see a few of the biggest hoaxes you'll ever find (on the internet),' she said."

Two people in the article say they haven't heard about any bigfoot sightings in the area where the video was taken. Well, just because no one has reported a sighting before this does not mean that Bigfoots cannot live there. After all, one person will have to report a sighting in an area before you hear of others from it.

Watch the video and tell me what you think. Is it a real Skunk Ape, or a hoax?
