From our friend Greg Newkirk over at Who Forted, A trail Cam capture of a creature that resembles a gorilla except they are hardly indigenous to Alberta, Canada. Many people are going to call it a bear because that is what their mind tells them it must be, see for yourself.
Trail Cam From Alberta Snaps Surprisingly Clear Image of.. Bigfoot?
This image, snapped by an as of yet unnamed game trapper from Alberta, certainly appears to be a rather good snap of what looks like some kind of big primate lounging around in the forest; a far cry from the usual “blobquatch” images of blurry brown specs viewed through leaves and digital zoom. The photo is so striking, in fact, that one could easily wonder if it wasn’t actually an image of a gorilla snapped in a preserve somewhere. The woman who uploaded the photo to Facebook a few hours ago, Penny, swears that isn’t the case.
“I know this person. They are a dogsledder and would in no way be the type to try to fool around with fake pictures. They actually think it’s a bear and cub but for some reason they only have one photo. Strange.”
I think I can see the shape of the shoulder, and the sagittal crest of the skull facing away and a knee bent upward to the right, the deltoid seems right and latissimus dorsi is evident…
… but then it could just be a bear practicing yoga poses. a good down dog looks a lot like that.
For comparison here is a grizzly bear from a three quarters rear angle.
…and one sitting
I just do not see much in the shape of this bear that corresponds to the anatomy of the picture above.
Others have suggested this could be a gorilla, that then presumes the picture was taken somewhere other than Alberta, and to be honest we have no evidence it was taken there, only the word of the person who posted it, however it also does not take a great leap to imagine this picture from the rear.
This one is certainly generating some talk.
So start talking.
