Believers in the legend of Bigfoot think that the creature may have been spotted in video footage taken in Michigan.

Bigfoot Sighting

A camera affixed to a tree near a park outside of Traverse City, Michigan, was supposed to be providing a live feed of a bald eagle nest when it caught something else in the background. In addition to showing the baby eaglets in the nest, the footage shows a figure walking through the forest that some are claiming must be Bigfoot.

“Like most videos purported to be Bigfoot, it’s grainy and out of focus — of course, the camera wasn’t set up to be focused on the ground; it was focused on the nest,” said Ed Eisch, DNR Fish Production manager for the state and the Platte River hatchery.  “I have a nephew who does a really good Bigfoot gait impression. But I know it wasn’t him.”
