Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

A shaky and out-of-focus video shot by teens in Idaho is said to possible show a Bigfoot blobsquatch walking through thick brushes. From a distance, the teens were able to tell that it was no local wildlife. The dark figure comes in and out of the picture so quick, that this video is almost useless.

But alas, it’s posted here for you guys to review and comment. My guess is that this is just a bear foraging for food.

POCATELLO, Idaho — A strange sighting by some high school students near Pocatello has Sasquatch hunters coming to southeast Idaho.

The students were on a school project near the west fork of Mink Creek south of Pocatello, when they say they saw a dark figure watching them from a ridge.

One student grabbed his camera and caught a glimpse.

A few fleeting seconds of a dark something disappearing into the tree line.

“It just didn’t look humanlike. I don’t know what that is, it’s not a bear, it’s not a moose or anything. It was big and bulky and black,” the student said.

The students climbed the ridge and took photographs of some big footprints they found.

Idaho State University professor Jeff Meldrum is a Bigfoot expert. His office is filled with suspected photos and plaster casts of Bigfoot prints.

He examined the photo and the short video of the distant figure.

“It nevertheless is a large dark figure that bears a striking resemblance to descriptions of Sasquatch,” Meldrum said.

Most people associate the Sasquatch with the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia, he said. But Meldrum said there’s a long history of Bigfoot lore in the Intermountain West and Idaho, though with different names.

“The notion of the immigrants coming into this place here and encountering strange and marvelous things like stories of wild men and mountain devils,” Meldrum said.

Or it could be a hoax.

But the high school student who shot the video, doesn’t seem to be looking for attention. He requested that we not release his name or picture.

And he said he’s simply not sure just what it was he saw standing on that ridge.

“I’m not going to say yes it was a Bigfoot or no it wasn’t, because I don’t know., and nobody knows,” the student said.

    Cant tell anything from that video, most likely just some more standard wildlife.

    Too blurry to make out anything. Could be a black bear. It looked too tall to be a human, although the video was so shaky and blurry it’s hard to be certain. 

  • …Bigfoot populations require vast amounts of land to remain elusive in. They typically dwell just behind rocks but, are sometimes playful, bounding into thick fogs and out of focus areas.

    I disagree that you “can’t tell anything” from this video. I increased my browser size and viewed it several times, and i could tell a couple of things pretty clearly despite the “blobsquatch”.

    One thing that is apparent is that the animal has a human-like gait. When a bear walks upright, it’s relatively short little forelegs are obvious, as is the appearance of it being ready to topple over at any moment due to the unnatural form of locomotion for its hind legs. This animal is striding forward.

    Another thing that is apparent is that the animal has long arms which swing as it walks. You can most clearly see this at the first moment the animal appears. A walking bear would not look like that.

    This is either a hoax or a sasquatch, but it isn’t a bear.
    Absolutely not a bear.
