Vermont Trail Cam Photo Desconstructed
Many of you may remember a couple weeks back when I turned the latest and greatest Bigfoot photo into a deer and demonstrated the desperate measures many will go to in order to prove the existence of said beast.
Since doing that I thought, wouldn’t it be interesting if I could find another alleged Sasquatch photo and prove a similar theory? Well, the truth is I didn’t do that at all…at least until I happened upon the now famous Vermont Trail Cam photo, again….today. It was then that the previous article popped into my head.
As I pondered the possibilities, my eyes affixed on the subject and bam, there it was! I immediately froze the video and to my amazement, I won the Powerball! Well, not the actual Powerball. I mean, come on! If I had won the Powerball, I wouldn’t be here trying to entertain the likes of you lose….Uhh, wonderful readers!
Getting back on track, Yes, you guessed right, I did see what appeared to be a different animal entirely. As I began to look for parts that made it all come together, they seemed to fall into place like so many dominos. Of course, we are rarely going to get enough visibility to see every aspect of these pictures, but there was enough to clearly prove the photo was and is not that of the elusive Bigfoot.
First, we’ll take a look at one of the videos done on this story, then I’ll get to work making my case.
Many of you may know, the untrained eye is going to follow along with what it recognizes and that can be different from person to person. However, enough people were in favor of it being Sasquatch, that the picture soon went viralicity.
As I said, people see what the want to see, but I try to reconstruct these photos from body part to body part. This picture was no exception and it was actually quite easy to break it down.
Below we see two photos. In the first, we take a look at the original trail cam picture as it has been appearing over the past couple months.
Now, lets put our thinking caps on and begin to break the photo down into sections. As you can see, I’ve labeled each part of the animal, so as not to mistake what I’m trying to convey.
What do I think it is? That’s hard to say, but I do know it’s not a Bigfoot. This is clearly a smaller animal than the giant many are making it out to be. Just imagine your dog facing you. Maybe it has a bone on the ground in front of it and as it rolls the bone toward itself, it goes back on it’s haunches. You’ve seen your dog do this, where his rear legs fan out and you can see the inside of them. This guy has it’s head down with rear right paw pointed SW. How do I explain the white spots? I’m almost positive it’s mange, which means this could be any of a number of different animals, from a bear on down. However, I am leaning more toward the “on down”.
My quest in this exercise was to prove that this is not Bigfoot and I think I’ve done that in spades.
What do you the reader think? Am I right or just grasping at straws?
Thanks to Youtubes UfoScandinavia for providing the video and Hubbardton, VTs own Frank Siecienski for the original photo.
