Kid on ATV films Bigfoot?

A young Michigan kid filming himself doing doughnuts on his four wheeler may have inadvertently captured Bigfoot lurking in the background. Although neither the name of the ATV rider nor the specific location in state where the video was shot are known at this time, but the footage is fairly intriguing in that it does appear to show some kind of bipedal creature ambling along past a bush behind the unknowing youngster. To that end, according to the brief description that he included with the video, the youngster did not notice the potential Bigfoot until he later got home and watched the footage.

 
After he spotted the possible Sasquatch, he subsequently submitted the video to a YouTube channel which specialized in Bigfoot footage. Included with the video was a brief message from the youngster in which he insisted that the video was not a hoax and shared his suspicion that the oddity was, in fact, a Bigfoot. As often happens with footage of this kind, the reaction has largely been split between those who also believe that it shows a Bigfoot and others who put forward a more skeptical bent.
Of that latter camp, the argument is that the footage is merely a clever hoax, which has some merit in a sense since the camera is ‘conveniently’ pointed more to where the anomaly appears rather than at the ATV. And, one would think that the noise emanating from the four wheeler would be enough to cause a Bigfoot to react with more urgency than in seen is the video. Then again, perhaps the legendary cryptid was trying to sneak away without being noticed. What’s your take on the odd video?

Legendary paranormal author and investigator Brad Steiger has passed away at the age of 82.
