Bigfoot Caught on a Drone Camera in Idaho?

Making the rounds on all the cryptozoology websites within the past few days has been a video, shot from a drone in Idaho, that supposedly shows a Bigfoot running through and open area into some trees.  You can watch it below.



The Idaho State Journal reported on the video:

"An online video of an alleged Bigfoot sighting in Southeast Idaho has been creating quite a stir over the past few days.
"The 2-minute, 24-second video, entitled 'Possible bigfoot in Idaho!! Flying the drone around and ran across this,' was posted on YouTube on June 2.
"The duration of the video consists of drone footage over a clearing near the Hawkins Reservoir west of Downey in Southeast Idaho. The reservoir is located approximately 35 miles south of Pacatello. 
 "A mysterious hairy figure, seemingly running on two legs, becomes visible at the 25-second mark. It then runs across a field and into a wooded area as the drone flies over the area.
"The videographer, who wishes to remain anonymous due to fears of public ridicule, said he initially thought the figure he captured was just an animal. However, he noticed the figure seemed to be running upright, which grabbed his attention.
"'I said, 'wait a minute, that's not right.'' he said.
"A still shot from the footage, which was provided by the videographer, indicates the figure is hairy and light brown in color. 
"However, since the YouTube footage was shared to Idaho State Journal's Facebook page late Sunday evening, numerous commentators on the page noted how difficult it is to actually see the running figure in the video. Even the YouTube video description recommends viewing the video on a large computer monitor.
"The drone is quite high in the sky, and by the time the camera starts to zoom in on the figure, it has disappeared in the wooded area. Because of the difficulty of getting a clear shot of the running figure, Idaho State University professor and noted Bigfoot expert Dr. Jeff Meldrum said the identity of the figure is inconclusive. 
"'I had to expand the size of the video to clearly see it on my 22-inch computer monitor, and those screens from drone cameras are usually no bigger than a cell phone screen,' he said. 'How could he have picked up that little speck, and then zoom in and fly directly to the point when it entered the forest?'
"Meldrum also stated that from his studies of Sasquatch, he said its unusual for them to be found in the immediate habitat surrounding Hawkins Reservoir.
"'I can imagine them crossing areas that aren't their prime habitat to get to one place to another or find another member of their species,' he said. 'But I can't imagine they would do that in broad daylight.'
"The videographer, who said he has lived in Southeast Idaho for over 30 years, said he isn't  sure what the figure in the video is exactly. However, he said his footage has piqued his interest so much that he has invested around $400 in specialized Adobe video software so he can get the clearest, zoomed-in footage of the mysterious figure possible.
"The footage was taken approximately a week and a half ago, according to the videographer, who says he commonly uses his drone to take wilderness and wildlife shots from the air.
"'I fly my drone everywhere, and I get video of elk, deer, rivers, all kind of things,' he said. 'Usually pretty views nobody else can see.'"

From watching the video, I do think it shows something running on only two legs. But, is it a Sasquatch, or a guy in a suit? That I can't tell.

What do you think?

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Cynocephali, Wolf-Men, and the Dogman

In modern times, there are reports of creatures that look like werewolves. These creatures are commonly called Dogmen by cryptozoologists. Most people will probably think that all the Dogman stories are fake, but a lot of people (including me) believe they are true. This post is about Dogmen, but not really the ones seen today. You see, reports/stories of Dogman like beings go back thousands of years.


THE CYNOCEPHALI 

First, we will start of with a history of the cynocephali for those who may not know what they are. According to the Cryptid Wiki, the Cynocephali existed in the mythology of Europe, India, and China. They were said to exist in modern-day Iran. In European mythology, they were described as dog-headed people. Sometimes they were said to be hairy giants.

One theory to explain the Cynocephali is that they are just baboons. That could be the explanation, but, as we shall see, stories of werewolf like creatures continued, and still do in today's world. The Cryptid Wiki has…
