Traffic cam image corroborates Bigfoot sighting

A traffic camera in Oregon has captured an image that seems to back up a man's story of encountering Bigfoot.
According to a Facebook page set up to monitor police and fire scanner reports in Morrow County, authorities recently received a 'frantic' call from a motorist who had seen something unusual.

He described how he had encountered a creature at the side of the road near the Hood River exit.

This gargantuan biped, he claimed, was "dwarfing the guard rail" and was "too big to be a bear."

Keen to solve the mystery, the dispatcher reportedly checked traffic cameras in the area and was able to pull up images of the very same stretch of road at the time of the sighting.

Incredibly, the images showed a large figure walking along the side of the road.
While it's impossible to make out any significant details, the mysterious figure certainly does look big.

Could this be evidence that there really was a Bigfoot wandering along the side of the highway ?

Update: Thanks to UM forum member fred_mc for finding this - a daylight image from the same traffic camera on the same stretch of road (click here) shows that the 'Bigfoot' is still there; turns out that it is actually nothing more than a tree or bush at the roadside.

This also explains what the motorist must have seen while driving past in the dark.

I had no idea until this thread that BF was a plant. You  know, biological activity is amazing. Been looking for bigfoot in the wrong kingdom of life.

Good catch - I've updated the original story with a link to the daylight traffic cam image.

Reminds of a UFO report by a seasoned observer at night, of a giant cylindrical mothership hovering and launching and recovering flying saucers overhead. When he went back in daylight, it turned out to be a big resistor in a high tension power line overhead, partially illuminated by ground lights. The flying saucers were bats and moths.

Looks like someone walking on the side of the highway.

"dwarfing the guard rail", it looks like  a normal 3 ft guard rial to me.

While, yes, it's a good catch, the original 'investigators' couldn't be bothered doing a proper (and very basic and obvious) initial check?  Sheeesh..

 That makes me think that you think these 'investigators' are interested in fact finding, instead of deceiving the gullible, which is what I think. Personally, I feel it is conceivable that these people actually knew what the truth was.

He says it is too big to be a bear.   That's where I started to question him.   They seen a glimpse and could tell right away that it was too big to be a bear.   I guess it was.   But not too big to be a bush.
