Youtube user M Lam caught something crazy on video walking across a snowfield outside Squamish, British Columbia: a shaky, distant, fuzzy dot that looks exactly like Sasquatch, maybe, if you squint hard enough. Watch:
Let's examine the evidence, culled from the video description:
Exhibit A: “The subject was clearly bipedal and was without snowshoes or a backpack and wearing all one coloured clothing. Movement over this kind of terrain in soft snow without snowshoes would have been very difficult and the distance traveled over the given time period would have been very fast for a human without proper snow travel gear.”
Exhibit B: There was a very steep drop off below where the video was shot, easily a 300m sheer face. We were not equipped with climbing gear and a descent around would have been impossible before nightfall.
Exhibit C “We have encountered bears on the approach to this summit in the past, this video is most definitely not showing a bear or any other wild animal.”
The skeptics among us, however, may find the rebuttal more compelling: “Perhaps the most reasonable explanation for this video is a very ill prepared hiker, hiking up a difficult section of snowline as opposed to a much easier route, one who is very physically fit and able to cover ground in unusually quick fashion and must have had very large feet as we were breaking through snow crust in just our boots.”
So is the video’s subject an in-the-flesh Sasquatch traipsing in his natural habitat, or a monochrome, lightning-fast, uber-burly hiker with giant feet? We report, you decide.
