A 'Bigfoot' being transported from Ohio to Colorado managed to attract a fair amount of attention.
When it comes to finding evidence of Bigfoot, the holy grail would no doubt be an actual live specimen - something so indisputable that it would put the entire debate over its existence to bed for good.
Heads were certainly turning recently in Colorado, therefore, when a truck was seen cruising along the highway towing a large wooden crate with the words "Caution: Captured Sasquatch" written on it.
Sadly, however, it turned out that the contents were not quite what they appeared to be.
The crate actually contained a 7ft mechanical sasquatch designed and built by the skilled team at Unit 70 Studios in Columbus, Ohio.
It was being taken to The Sasquatch Outpost in Bailey by John Warn and Shari Peterson.
"Having a blast - people are soooo curious," said Peterson.
"At one restaurant, the server said she's been serving for 10 years and hoped to have a super interesting day one day - she said meeting us was it!"
