A video featuring the elusive mythical creature Bigfoot has received more than half a million hits on YouTube.
The creature was allegedly captured on video by one ‘Samantha’ while she was hiking with two of her friends in the wooded area near the Spokane River in Washington. The video was made using an iPhone.
Samantha said she did not notice the creature while hiking as it was very far away, but she noticed it while she was watching the video at home. She uploaded the video on YouTube, where it has so far received more than 500,000 views.
The hiker sent the video to KXLY TV in Spokane, which then ran the story of the alleged sighting. The video shows a bent, apparently hairy, humanoid figure walking across the forest path. The quality of the video makes it impossible to determine what it was but Samantha believes it was the ‘Bigfoot’.
“Someone asked me in the comments section if I believed in Bigfoot before the video. I have never given it much thought, but now I'm not so sure. Seems real enough to me,” she said in a statement.
There have been several sightings of the creature in the North West region of North America but the creature’s existence has not been proven scientifically.
