The "Gable Film" has sparked great controversy and many different theories in recent years, the footage shows a large creature charging towards the cameraman out in the woods. Is it an unknown creature or could it simply be a bear ?

"The “Gable film” is an edited 8mm film that has been raising a lot of questions and theories for the last few years. Many have declared this to be an elaborate hoax created by someone wanting to capitalize on the “Michigan Dogman” stories."

A very frightening video, I've always seen it as a bear, but the cyclical movements (running, walking) are very similar to those of an ape, even a gorilla. Once it attacks the camera, you can see the snout isn't that of an ape. So what is it?

Also on youtube, you can find the Gable Film part 2. If you're going to watch it, make sure you read the description to the right of the video of the Gable Film part 2, or else you won't know what it's about.

I will not link it here since it's content is not suited for minors.

The thing about the article is that it compares things between both Gable films like the trucks and the cameras. To me, the part 2 of the Gable film would only be proof that the Gable film is real.

It kind of looks like a bear to me too. The quality is really bad, even the enhanced ones aren't clear.

The full length version shows at least 3 different people. May have been filmed piecemeal, but I don't know. Wasn't anyone ever questioned about the attack? Especially since part 2 shows a deceased victim.

my first thought was a gorilla just because of how it moved. a bear would make more sense though but it doesn't seem bearlike to me for some reason

I kinda thought an ape too in the beginning because of the way the two front legs bow outwards. It's so hard to tell because of the quality of the film.

The way it looked and analyzed before it's attack, and then moved sideways, it really reminded me a of a big dominant gorilla. But when it's charging, it looks very much like a bear. I've read other sites and comments on the video, and some report seeing a tail and pointy ears when going through the WMV file frame by frame. Due to the bad quality, it's too hard to make any concrete statements about what it is. A gorilla, bear, a hybrid or something unknown.

Pretty amazing though, I'm suprised I never heard of this before I read the article. The first video is very prone to being deemed as a hoax, but the 2nd youtube video showing the corpse and all the other similarities like the truck and the camera, made it feel real authentic to me, personally. Especially since a person in a big suit would never have been able to move in that manner, or at the speed shown in the video. The manner in which the creature moves looks to be way off of how the human anatomy would look like while moving on hands and feet at that velocity. It feels like it would be way too elaborate to be a hoax, especially for that time.

I think this might explain a lot:

Snout / Muzzle like that of a dog attacking the camera at the end of the film.

Gait / Walk like that of a Gorilla at the first sighting in the film, prior to them getting out of the vehicle.

The correct approximate size.

Low rear end.

Wide front end girth

What do you think?

You and me both. I read up on some user comments below the article link and it seems the cop holding the paper pad, seems to be indicating reel and scene numbers. It appears it may have been like an early production of a horror or documentary.

I might be able to rule out the drill, I don't know the quality isn't the best but about 27 seconds into the video it appears to have a tail.

To be honest that is what I first thought myself however the direction the animal is travelling and the incline of the hill at that particular part of the film makes me wonder if the "tail" that we can see is actually the left hand hip of the animal raised as it charges sideways almost down the hill. (I hope that makes sense, its hard trying to describe what I mean without actually pointing at the film)

Noticed that when this creature moves, it appears to move both left legs and both right legs at the same time. Is this the gait of an ape or a bear? It's so hard to tell. Also, most bear attacks I've heard of were initiated with the paws, swiping using the claws. This animal attacked with it's mouth. Is that unusual for a bear?

If the police were on the scene filming it and there is a victim, where is the official police file? It should exist.

Without question, the video does not depict a bear! Bears legs begin under the body, shoulder line is well below the chin. The shoulders of this creature are above the jaw line and I have only ever seen this on a primate. The arm and shoulder dimensions are consistant with a gorilla's, having said this, it looks far too bulky and too low to the ground for a gorilla. We ourselves are primates and I see nothing in the movement of this creature to suggest the simian might not just be one of us in a costume. People are mentioning the speed but the camera comes off the object very quickly and the rest could just be acting.

Also the production of the film make me question it further. Why does it cut between scenes and what the hell was the camera operator filming in the first place? It's got hoax written all over it.

If it is too hard for a single person. Perhaps two smaller people, i.e. children, could be making it move. We do not see its complete charge. The teeth could very well have been a puppet of some kind held by the camera man.

I think it may be the same animal also it runs with great speed for the size animal it is and it does not run like a bear. The teeth in the video look like the same. Could this animal rip a person in half how big can these get?

I have to disagree, sorry, but seriously whose to say that the guy sees something thats out of the ordinary grabs his camera, starts filming it and then is spotted by the creature, chased and...
