I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

Today we are reviewing a story that was making rounds toward the end of last week and appeared at some very reputable sites.

This one began with a trail cam photo on the Facebook page, ‘Chasing Trophy Whitetails’. The picture in question is seemingly showing some sort of strange biped creature.

As soon as I saw this story my spidey sense started to tingle. Furthermore, I immediately recognized the figure in the photo without any manipulation whatsoever.

First lets view the picture as it originally appeared:

So far, so good. Now, lets blow it up and zoom in on the subject. If you look closely, you may see where I’m going with this already:

Now lets take another look, but this time we will add a second photo of something you are sure to recognize:

Unfortunately out of the hundreds of stock cow photos I found, none matched the positioning I needed which is a 3/4 turn of the back end with a bend of the body in the middle and ending up having the animal facing to the rear. That doesn’t change the fact that there is a definite contour match as well as the subject having what appears to be a hoof at the bottom.

It is my opinion that the picture was “possibly” manipulated to remove most of the animal and give the appearance of a biped.

Below see some stock photos of various cows. One thing you’ll notice when clicking on each image for the full view is how the back of the hindquarter takes a straight line drop, just like the subject.

Finally, for those who still can’t see it, I’ll do the patented red marker outline trick:

Of course there are many who will argue my findings and that’s fine as you all have the right to your opinion. However, I do believe I’ve proven that this is not a biped creature of any kind. I liken it most closely to a cow, but it could also be some other large hooven animal.

I try to break these photos down part by part as I’ve mentioned in the past. However, at the end of the day, I’m still just human. Although I could be wrong, the evidence is hard to deny.

Thanks for reading and please throw an opinion into the comment section below, you’ll be glad you did.

Note: I’d like to clarify that I am not accusing Chasing Trophy Whitetails of anything as it’s quite possible that the picture came out as it appears due to a glitch in the camera.

    I hate to be so late in giving my response to this photo and my take on your hypothesis, Scott. I had forgotten about it, and for some reasons it is making rounds again, so here I go. I think the cow solution was pretty good, especially when there are obvious cow tracks beginning near the camera and going out into the field.

    However, on closer examination, and scrutinizing the figure very intensely against some research material (books) my daughter loaned me, I have complete confidence that I have identified the subject in the photo. Plain and simple, he is the Grinch who stole Christmas. Take a deep breath and a stiff drink; no one could have predicted that he would be out of prison this soon. According to the trailcam photo, he had already made it to Wisconsin last November. I’ve never walked to the North Pole before, but I don’t imagine it would take a year to do so. We may as well face it, the fat man ain’t coming this year…

    Shawn, you are right about one thing, you are late:


    You happen to choose the only deconstruction that I have had to rescind.

    Well, kids everywhere can rest easy now! I can’t believe this fellow seriously believes that is any kind of spirit at all, much less and Indian Spirit. He has no evidence at all. Clearly it is a skinny dude caught on camera trespassing. In his “face” shot (pic #1), the subject wasn’t even facing the camera. His left shoulder is clearly slightly ahead of his right one, as he is angling toward the direction he ultimately winds up in for Pics 2 and 3. I’ve gotten blurry pics of deer and other moving critters, as I’m sure everyone who has used a trailcam has, except Mr. Coffey.
