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.

    If you look at the picture it is not Bigfoot or a bear it is really a ape they look more like as a man.

    that is not a black bear…its hind legs are longer than its front which indicates that it would walk in an upright position or be known as a biped….it looks to be in the ape family…I would submit this photo to the bigfoot researchers organization or BFRO.org

    This is no way appears to be a bear unless it has gotten some kind of skin issue that effects the hair. I would be interested and greatly appreciate it if you would let me know if you hear exactly what this is.
