Small dog 'scares away Bigfoot' in new video


Posted on Saturday, 8 August, 2015 | Comment icon 56 comments

Is there an unknown hominid lurking in the North Carolina woods ? Image Credit: CC 2.0 Ashley Chile Baz
A man visiting the Asheville area managed to record a strange figure retreating through the undergrowth.
The encounter was filmed by Eric Walters of Boone who had been visiting Asheville on Thursday morning while renting a cabin there with his wife. He had been out walking his dog Zippy in remote woodland when he came across what he initially believed to be a bear.

As he took out his phone to record some footage however he realized that the animal was walking upright on two legs and quickly came to the conclusion that he was witnessing something unusual.

"I quickly realized it was not a bear, but a Sasquatch," he said. "Zippy could tell I was scared and got so riled up that he got loose and went after it."
According to Walters the tiny canine actually managed to dissuade the creature which then turned around and hastily retreated in to tall grass at the side of the road.

"Yorkies are small in size, but bigger than even a Sasquatch in heart," he said.

The footage has proven popular but controversial since appearing online with critics arguing that there is too much emphasis on filming the dog and that the 'Bigfoot' could just be a man in a suit.

I am sure that Bigfoot videos are hoaxed now and again. As to the validity of this one, I do not know enough to form an educated opinioon. BF videos are hoaxed quite often starting with the Patterson BF movie that started it all. I worry about someone who would spend time "hoaxing" a Bigfoot sighting. Big bucks if you get an audience (see Patterson) For one, it would take a lot of time and effort to find and put together a somewhat realistic gorilla costume. This would also be very hot and awkward to move in. Most seem childishly easy to do as the video in question here shows Second, you would... [More]

BF videos are hoaxed quite often starting with the Patterson BF m' post='5605304']ovie that started it all. The Patterson footage has never been proven a hoax, nor genuine. Big bucks if you get an audience (see Patterson) How does one pull an audience and advertisers from a short cell phone video? Most seem childishly easy to do as the video in question here shows please show me the child who can make an adult sized gorilla costume. Oh come on, any side of the road with trees and brush seems suitable. Then you must also wait for a "witness" with a cell phone camera. and you better hope they ar... [More]

Then by all means, HOAX it up! You can state that BF does not exist, I can state that it may exist. But neither one of us knows for sure. First of all you are asking me to prove a negative, which is impossible and second, and more importantly, you are claiming that something exists without a shred of proof that it does, while I am claiming nothing and therefore have no need of proof. All we can both say is that based on the evidence we have, as of today, there is nothing to indicate BF exists. Show me proof that BF does indeed exist and I will gladly declare him to be real. My question is, why... [More]

I think Goplay is working from the angle that the videographer is being hoaxed whereas Merck is assuming both parties are working together to hoax the general public.

Maybe, I am not looking at the big picture here, but who on earth has the time to pull off a "bigfoot hoax"? Do you know 90% of the BF videos you watch? Those were all made by people who had time to hoax BF videos. The other 10%were of bears, bushes and treestumps

The world is full of those who get real enjoyment out of tricking others for their own entertainment. Not to mention people who live for "hits" generated by convincing others to watch what they post. And these days it can even be profitable. There are endless reasons for someone to create and post fake BF videos. Just because you (and most of us) think it's a big waste of time doesn't mean everyone does.

On a side note, I do not care for Yorkies either. Little yapping,snarling loathsome little beasts. By far, my least favorite breed of canine..

Yep, that's bigfoot. Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Stares down heavily armed hunters. Tosses 300 lb hogs for fun. The forests themselves trembler should this magnificent and awesome boss of the woods and lord of the jungle appear. Simply can't be tracked because hounds cower in fear at his mere scent. Unless it's a yappy little terrier, then he goes to water and hightails it.
