When it comes to the legend of Sasquatch, there is still a singular piece of evidence that rises above all the rest: The infamous Patterson-Gimlin film.
You know it, even though you may not have known it by name. This is the grainy, arm-swinging, look-back film taken in the wilds of northern California decades ago, in which an alleged Bigfoot is caught crossing a creek.
To capture this controversial piece of lore, enormous and heavy pieces of near-ancient camera equipment had to be carried by horseback miles and miles out into the wilderness, on a trip that took several days to complete.
Nowadays, however, a few boaters in Canada can just whip out their iPhone and catch a quick peek at the legendary beast during an afternoon cruise.
An intriguing video from Canada shows a remarkably clear view of what appears to be a Bigfoot walking in a wooded area near a large body of water. The fantastic footage was shared online by the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, which indicated that boaters in the northern part of Ontario had recently filmed the strange scene. Unfortunately, the specific time and location of the sighting as well as the identity of the witnesses are all unknown at this time. Be that as it may, the footage constitutes one of the more jaw-dropping alleged Bigfoot videos to appear online simply by virtue its unambiguous nature.
The similarities to the original Patterson-Gimlin creature were startling.
In the footage, the boaters are filming a nearby forested shoreline when a large bipedal creature covered in fur emerges from the woods and walks across an open area until disappearing back into the trees. Notably, the suspected Sasquatch boasts a coloring that allows it to largely blend into its surroundings and it swings its arms in a fashion reminiscent of the ‘star’ of the famed Patterson-Gimlin film. Unlike many purported Bigfoot videos, the footage is particularly interesting as the oddity in the footage is undeniably some kind of bipedal figure and it can be clearly seen for approximately six seconds, which is a rather long time for one to get such a glimpse of the elusive cryptid.
The naysayers were out in force, however, with a number of skeptics suggesting that the video showed nothing more than a bear walking briefly on its hind legs.
