'Bigfoot screams' video continues to intrigue

Did Meekis record a howling Bigfoot, or something else ? Image Credit: YouTube / Stargell Blackstar
A recording of terrifying howling sounds coming from the woods of rural Canada still lacks a definitive explanation.
Last month we covered the story of Gino Meekis who recorded something unnerving while out grouse hunting in Canada and now, several weeks on, despite the involvement of wildlife experts who have attempted to identify the creature making the sound, the mystery seems no closer to being solved.

What's more, the clip has been gaining a lot more press attention on both sides of the Atlantic. Since we last reported on it, the number of views on the video has increased from 45,000 to over 1 million.

The footage was originally uploaded onto YouTube on October 3rd and began to grab the attention of news sites a few weeks later. It was filmed approximately 45km from Sioux Lookout, Ontario.

Meekis, along with his wife and young grandson, had been out hunting when they started to hear a series of loud, mournful screams coming from somewhere nearby.

The chilling vocalizations continued for several minutes, leaving the couple very disconcerted.
You can listen to the recording for yourself below - the volume is low so headphones are advised.

The video has managed to generate some heated debate on social media and there are still those who subscribe to the notion that it contains the vocalizations of a genuine Bigfoot.

Even wildlife experts seem unable to determine for sure what it is.

According to Jolanta Kowalski - a spokeswoman for Ontario's ministry of resources and forestry - biologists are unconvinced that it is an unknown species but can't say exactly what it is either.

"Our biologists say it could be a larger mammal - for example a wolf - but because it's a considerable distance from the recorder there is no way to know for sure," she said.

Rather interesting to read the comments and even the title of this article from the perspective of cognitive distortions. Jumping to conclusions based on little or no evidence, perhaps even black and white thinking whereby it's either an explainable event or it's Big Foot.

pygmy hippos make an odd noise it may of been on of them.........................ok maybe not but just as much chance of that as a biggie

Probably a moose or bunch of Canada geese. Certainly not a bigfoot because they don't exist. If they did exist we would have some bones or someone would have shot one by now. Just a fanciful dream by kooks.

Less POT, more research.....................KOOK!  Neither Geese or Moose nor Wolves nor Deer nor Bears sound anything like this, simple research (as fieldwork is likely too much for your lazy ass) will prove this...oh and...keep your ignorant comments and insults to yourself.

Youre right though ive spent a ton of time around all the animals you listed and certainly none sound like that. The only normal explanation I can come up with is a very large canine or other animal in distress having its voice distorted through echoes caused by canyons and low cloud cover. Thats basically grasping at straws though.

Sounded like it was getting closer. Time for a cool sharp harp

Lazy asses speculating again without bothering to check on you tube the sound made by Canadian animals. Just because is unusual and different doesn't make it a big foot mistery but it remains an unexplain mystery. Canada gese? Are you drunk?

No, I didn't read it. There's no need to be such a tosser about it though.
