Creatures, Myths & Legends

Strange shadowy creature filmed hiding behind a tree

A recently published viral video shows what appears to be a creature peering out from behind a tree at night.
The clip, which was reportedly filmed by Carol Eifert on the night of November 21, 2021, shows some woodland at the side of a road illuminated by the headlamps of a nearby car.

According to the accompanying story and the conversation between Eifert and her granddaughter in the video, they had spotted some sort of creature that was hiding behind one of the trees.

"My granddaughter, Kamriyn, and I were coming off the hill and as I was about to lock our gate, she started freaking out that she could see something behind the tree where my lights were shining from my car across the street," Eifert was quoted as saying.
Initially believing it to be a bear, she later changed her mind after reviewing the footage.

"I realized it wasn't a bear and have since been told that it was like a skinwalker or hidebehind among other things," she said. "In the last 40 years, I have never seen anyone hitchhiking, let alone walking, on that road, especially at night."

I'm curious about the edit just before "it" peeks from behind the tree and what occurred after the clip ends.  It looks like a shadow but I can't figure out what is casting the shadow

The way my house lot is set up my drive way then yard that goes back to the neighbors 6ft fence, its like a movie screen at night one doesnt really see the white fence in the dark but the shadows that are cast on it, i plan to project a bigfoot like figure but what gave me that idea one night one of the semi feral cats walked along casting its bigger shadow that looked like a huge mountain lion was in the back yard, pretty cool but nothing paranormal.

 I had to watch the video full screen on YouTube to actually see what they were talking about. It looks just like a shadow.  Paranormal = shadow man. Real World = shadow from 2nd light source, or animal climbing the tree, like others said.
