A terrified hiker managed to record several seconds of footage before legging it from the scene.
Filmed in the Utah mountains, the 28-second video begins with a shot overlooking a picturesque snow-covered woodland.
The tranquil scene is interrupted only a few moments later however by the sudden appearance of a tall dark figure which can be seen walking casually along the tree line towards the right.
Apparently terrified, the hiker quickly turns and bails in the opposite direction while gasping in panic at what he'd just witnessed.
"I saw movement in the trees and that's when I move the camera to capture whatever it was," he wrote. "I was scared already but when it stepped into the clearing outside of the trees I was absolutely terrified. I only saw it for a second before I ran."
"I only remember it being the most massive animal I have seen and I canít think about it without shaking. I donít want to say that it is for sure a Bigfoot, but I donít know what else it could be."
