The mystery of the clown trail camera pictures


Eldorado

Recommended Posts

The internet has no shortage of lengthy articles listing spooky pictures that were purportedly captured by trail cameras in the forest. One of the most notorious pairs of trail-camera photographs showed a big, colorful clown approaching the lens. For years, the clown pictures have been endlessly shared without any information to confirm their source.

The first trail camera picture showed a clown appearing to approach the camera to get a closer look.

The photograph showed a watermark for what likely was the old community discussion message board on realtree.com. According to what we found on the website today, that community area no longer exists.

In the second trail camera photograph, the clown was right in front of the lens.

I don't get the point here. No backstory, no witnesses, no real evidence of a location and accepting the obvious that this was probably done by the very guy in the picture. Slow news day I guess.

I bet this is a great way to make people steer clear of you when doing things in the woods that you don't want people to see.

It has all the hallmarks of a staged scenario, set up by the guy who owns the camera. People in clown suits don't roam the deep forest. Also, the two pictures seem to have a time signature on them. The close-up came first and the long shot three minutes later. Whoever owned the camera - the clown - must have footage of at least three minutes duration or a load of stills. He chose to only publish two stills. Get a life!

Like learning how to juggle, throwing custard pies or fitting you and 15 of yer pals in to a wee teeny tiny car?
