Eagle Cam Captures Bigfoot -- Or Something Else -- Walking Around

Who said bird watching is boring?

From adorable baby birds to unexpected drop-ins (including a dead cat), eagle cams appear to have it all ― including Bigfoot.

An eagle cam appears to have captured an ape-like creature walking around on the ground below, prompting speculation that it could be the elusive creature.

The shadowy figure was filmed near the Platte River State Fish Hatchery in Beulah, Michigan, back in May, The Detroit Free Press reported.

The camera had been set up to monitor a resident eagle family’s progress by the state’s Department of Natural Resources and outdoor website CarbonTV. It wasn’t until recently, however, that a CarbonTV editor stumbled across the video’s clip on a Bigfoot sighting website and highlighted it on theirs, said CarbonTV executive director of content and marketing Daniel Seliger.

The footage has since gone viral with an edited version of it magnifying the creature as it walks, seemingly on two legs, around trees and other brush.

Though there appear to be some believers – at least on social media ― not everyone is convinced it’s the real deal. That includes Bigfoot researcher Jeffrey Meldrum of Idaho State University.

“It is an interesting video, but remains just that, given the lack of scale and detail in the image of the figure,” he told Free Press after reviewing the video.

As far as the state’s Department of Natural Resources, they appear willing to leave this one open to interpretation as well.

“We have made no attempt to determine the identification of the figure depicted in the YouTube video clip,” DNR Public Information Officer John Pepin told The Huffington Post Thursday.

So it might be Bigfoot. But it could be Elvis ... or Jimmy Hoffa ... or Donald Trump’s accountant. What do you think?
