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.

    Too thin to be a bear. Looks to me like a chimpanzee or something else from the ape group.

    A very sickly looking bear is my guess as well

    I’ve lived in this community for 15 years and here within the last year, I have heard noises(funky sounding screams/howls) and knocking in these woods behind my house. Sometimes it’s like something is watching you at night, U just getting a erie feeling. I think Big-Foot is out there somewhere, but where, I don’t know. But this thing is not a bear, seen plenty in my front yard. fat and skinny ones. Its arms are way too long and bears don’t have fingers to grasp tree stumps. This creature is way to human like. Hope this brings some attention to someone who can identify this creature and keep it safe.No one should kill it, if its not bothering you, don’t bother it!!!!!
