What do you think? Is it a bear or a sasquatch?
Two still photographs were captured by a fisherman in Virginia last week. The two shots are very clear, but were also taken from very far away so it does distort the image a little bit when zooming. The images have hit mainstream media sources, so once again we are asked: is there such thing as Bigfoot?
Here’s what the poster, Randy O’Neil, had to say in reference to the pictures:
“Today, I became a believer. My Dad took these pictures with his call phone. This story is over 25-years-old. Approximately 25 years ago my dad, a friend of ours, and myself had a late night run-in with an unknown creature. It was around 9PM and we had been camping, fishing, and shooting beer cans. We had settled down for the night on a remote creek in Virginia about five miles from civilization off the intercoastal waterway. I was 15-years-old at the time, and as the campfire flickered I kept seeing red eyes watching us from behind the bushes. This went on for what seemed like hours, but was probably only 20 minutes.
Eventually my dad got tired of listening to me being a chicken shit and told me to, “shoot the damn thing.” We kept one shotgun handy to use incase of snakes. At that point in time I didn’t see it. I said, “Dad I only see it when the fire flickers a certain way,” to which my dad said, “then just shoot where you think it is.” So, I did. When I shot, whatever I shot let out the most blood curdling scream you could ever imagine. We heard it tear off through the woods and it hit the water. When this thing it the water it sounded like a Volkswagen had been dropped into the creek.
Needless to say that got Dad’s attention. For a long time that night we felt like we were walking on eggshells, scared to blink. We never heard anything else. The following morning we went to where we heard the creature and were shocked. The path the creature cleared through the woods as it headed for the water was cleared as if a skid steer had gone through the woods. Not a single sapling was left standing. For 25 years this has been a story we shared with the kids and grandkids, but honestly we have always wondered.
June 28, 2014, my dad and Uncle Jap were fishing near the location and caught these photographs. It is still unknown what this is and it is not known if this is the same thing I shot 25 years ago. We are not claiming this is proof of Bigfoot, but I promise you that whatever I shot was something that I have never seen or heard before nor again in my entire life.”
