Weird 'creature' filmed in Canadian woodland


Posted on Friday, 3 August, 2018 | Comment icon 56 comments

What is this thing exactly ? Image Credit: YouTube / Audree Tanguay Frechette
Footage has emerged showing what appears to be a Gollum-like creature skulking around in the woods.
The intriguing video was reportedly filmed on July 29th in Gaspesia, Quebec, Canada.

"I was filming a moose on a roadside," wrote Audree Tanguay Frechette who recorded the footage. "Looking at the video I saw this strange shape at the back left. Can someone tell me what it is?"

Some Internet users have noted that the creature looks a bit like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings while others have likened it to one of the aliens from the movie Mars Attacks!

But is everything really as it seems ?

If you follow the movements of the creature, it seems as though it is moving with the camera, rather than independently of it. As such, it could be argued that it is not a creature at all but a smudge on either the camera lens or the window of the car.

Could this explain what can be seen in the video or is there an alternative explanation ?

You decide.

moon man I agree about it being a waste of time and forum space. It is obvious that it is explainable after one time watching the video. The only mystery is how people can be so dumb as to try to speculate any kind of "creature" is shown except a moose. But then again these forums are filled with people trying to make mountains from molehills. *SIGH*

  Just remember that having this video clearly and logically explained here at UM will help a LOT of people,  who don't know how to analyze such things, choose the reasoned way of looking at this one and any they will see in the future.  The woo sites can be very persuasive.

I totally understand Merc. This particular one is so low on the bar that it's frustrating. Akin to me posting a picture of a basket of laundry and proposing that it's evidence for life on the sun. I know the woo is strong. Is it bigfoot? Is it a ghost? Gollum from Lord of the Rings!? my brain hurts trying to understand the lack of logic.

Completely agree.  100%  but if we don't explain that to folks on the edge then more fall for the woo.  There are a lot of folks here that were FTB's until they ran into some logical explanations and friendly help to the rational side of things.   Never ending mate.

Bad CGI....

It's honestly depressing and borderline parodic to me I see this posted on multiple websites when it's obviously a stain on the windshield. It moves in sync with the windshield, and furthermore no part of its "body" is moving relative to it. It's just sliding around; if it was a creature would't you see its legs moving?

Not sure why you edited your post, it looks like a moose to me as well, same ears, no udders, etc.
