Creepy clown trail camera mystery continues to endure

The story behind these photographs remains a total mystery. Image Credit: Unknown
Eerie photographs of a clown captured on a trail camera have remained a topic of debate for years.
Imagine wandering through a forest in the early evening, struggling to fight your way through the dense tree branches as the light begins to fade, only to come face to face with the one thing you would never have imagined running into in a million years: a clown, grinning from ear to ear...

These two photographs, which were reportedly captured by a trail camera in the middle of a forest, have remained something of an enigma for more than ten years.

The story had been posted online sometime before 2010, however despite the best efforts of Internet sleuths and even myth-busting site Snopes, no definitive source has so far been found.

The images have appeared on numerous websites over the years, often associated with a story or urban legend about a creepy clown appearing in the woods without explanation.
The mystery also predates the 'creepy clown' phenomenon that began back in 2013.

In all likelihood, of course, the pictures were probably staged and the clown is also the same person who set up the camera, however there is something undeniably eerie about the whole thing.

You can just imagine how terrifying it would be to come across this guy in the woods at night...

No below is the culprit and you don’t want to meet him in the woods.

Eh. If he has pie and booze, I may have to take my chances.

Yea but you don’t know what’s in the pie, and clowns are creepy anyways!

@jmccr8 @Manwon Lender Can't be any worse than the meat pies I've had on Fleet Street!

Actually that’s Pogo or Patches the Clowns great grandfather in the photo I posted. Yeah no one would ever figure that John Wayne Gacy had such humble beginnings or that he was the third generation of Clowns in his family!

I have no experience with Fleet Street, but I have eaten things in the Middle East that smelled and tasted great but that I could not identify. I also have had the same experience in Asia, however, for some reason after the meal began to digest I always felt like barking at strangers!

That’s  cool so what is the back story?
Comment icon #21 Posted by Manwon Lender 2 years ago
Now that doesn’t make sense, how can you do something you don’t want others to see inside that suit, unless your doing it alone!! Is that what your referring to??

Now when I think about it, this could be a bigfoot disguised as a clown.
