Unidentified animal seen on trail cam

My beautiful pictureSubmitted by Roger Williams

Can you help identify this animal from the picture shown here?

It is unclear if this is an unverified picture of a “Bigfoot.” It was recently discovered on a “trail cam” placed in the nearby mountains.

It was surprising, to say the least, when I discovered the image on the camera’s disc. What in the world can this be?

Carefully scrutinizing the image, it appears that the right arm shows fingers as the animal grasps the base of the tree stump. It also has elongated feet similar to a man’s appendages. Its fur is matted on the back but thin on the arms and legs. Unfortunately, the head and face are not shown by the image taken.

I think it must be a bear. It has to be a gear, does it not? I hunt this area annually and have seen no sign of a Bigfoot. I have seen bear scat and tracks before, so I can identify them.

No unidentified tracks, droppings, or any other indications of a large upright predator in the woods have ever been found, that I know of.

There were no discernable tracks on the leaf-covered ground near the camera where it was picked up. The mystery remains!

Your input would be appreciated.

    After looking at the pic some more I am going to say Black Bear. It appears to have a tail and Chimps do not have tails. also the torso is too full bodied for a chimp. Chimps are not that fat. Unless this on has really been eating super good. But again there is nothing in the pic for a really good size comparison.

    It looks like a Gorilla. Maybe someone was keeping it as a pet and doesn’t want to come forward with information cause they had it and don’t want to be charged for having it.

    By the picture it looks like a great ape, due to the narrowing of the hips. Because it has apposable thumbs, it looks more like the ape than a bear. During several past hurricanes, Flordia has lost a bunch of zoo animals, maybe one of their migrated north.

    BigFoot— for non believers, do you believe skunks exist? rarely see one alive– but dead everywhere you go along the roads– now what if skunks had enough intelligence to want to stay unseen and when one got run over on the highway, others would come and remove it????? People would probably say “Skunks don’t exist”!

    This looks like a primate to me as well. A small gorilla maybe? Definitely not a black bear though…
