Bigfoot?

A hunter took this picture, remotely I believe, in PA. Those are pretty long legs for a bear.

RIDGWAY, Pa. - It's furry and walks on all fours.

Beyond that, about the only thing certain about the critter photographed by a hunter's camera is that some people have gotten the notion it could be a Sasquatch, or bigfoot. Others say it's just a bear with a bad skin infection.

Rick Jacobs says he got the pictures from a camera with an automatic trigger that he fastened to a tree in the Allegheny National Forest, about 115 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, hoping to photograph deer.

"We couldn't figure out what they were," Jacobs said of the images captured on Sept. 16. "I've been hunting for years and I've never seen anything like this."

I grew up in Bigfoot country in Northern California, when I was like 11-year-old my friends and I went through a phase where we read every bigfoot book we could get our hands on, watched all the documentaries about them, etc. We'd go on 'bigfoot hunts' into the forests by our houses every weekend, we were convinced they existed and it was our mission in life to find one. To this day I love me a good bigfoot story. But that is clearly a bear. Anyone who can't see that probably hasn't seen very many bear.

I thought the same thing when these came out last week. I don't know... The whole thing seems fishy.

To me it looks like a human dressed up like Bigfoot.

I was thinking human in costume, too. There's a pic from that same camera of some bears that wandered through that area earlier that evening. They look nothing alike. Not even close.
