A perplexing video has come to my attention. It seems that during a new episode of Survivorman Bigfoot, Les Stroud “accidentally” caught what looks like a Bigfoot on the ground behind him, and a juvenile Bigfoot up in a tree. How could that happen?! CryptoVille investigates!
A strange little video came to my attention yesterday and I’ve been spending a lot of time pouring over it. The video is actually a cell phone video of a recent episode of Survivorman Bigfoot.
The man taking the cell phone video, known only as dlyall26 on YouTube, thinks that he sees Bigfoot in the background of Les’ video, as well as a juvenile Bigfoot up in the tree nearby. This was from the new episode of Survivorman Bigfoot that aired on April 1, 2015.
First of all, the quality of this video stinks. Les’s show was filmed well, as per usual, but taking a cell phone video of it off the TV screen just adds a huge layer of unsteady, grainy features. I looked online to see if I could find the episode, but it hasn’t been posted anywhere yet, as far as I can tell.
So for now, we’ll have to deal with this poor quality cell-phone video. (By the way, I’m not hating on dlyall26 – I appreciate that he shared this with us; it was a good attempt. I’m hating on cell phone cameras and videos.)
Here is the video from dlyall26 (about a minute and a half long):
Look at time stamp 0:21 – 0:27, and look over Les’ shoulder in the background. I’m amazed at how much that looks like an adult Bigfoot standing next to a big tree. Tall, hairy, conical head, and no neck.
Next, look at time stamp 0:28-1:00. There is a black object high in the tree and it appears to be clinging to the trunk. At this point, I could believe it’s a tubby juvenile bear except for what happens next.
View time stamp 1:11 – 1:24. Doesn’t that look like a humanoid figure, with a cone shaped head and no neck to speak of? I can’t believe what I’m seeing – can you?
I have a couple problems believing this is really a Bigfoot and their youngster up in the tree. Yes, they are a good distance away from Les, but they can certainly hear him talking. They’re not that far away. And they must have heard him walking through the forest. How is it the adult is not reacting?
Wouldn’t they have smelled him coming, as animals do?
For me, this is the biggest problem the video has. That adult Bigfoot looks calm, cool, and collected as it stands next to the youngster climbing above.
Speaking of hearing – how did Les not hear them? They’re big animals, they would make some noise too, especially up in a tree with little twigs breaking off, maybe leaves rustling.
I believe someone has notified Les of this finding, but he hasn’t released a statement yet. He is probably doing the same thing we are – watching this over and over again and wondering how the heck could this happen?
I respect and admire Les Stroud, and I trust his judgment in outdoor living and survival wholeheartedly. I wasn’t too thrilled when he associated himself with Todd Standing in the last series of Bigfoot videos, but he was skeptical and inquiring throughout that time. (You can see my article in the Reference section below where I covered that.)
So I don’t for a minute believe Les would perpetrate a hoax just to entertain us. He wants to get to the truth about this animal as much as the rest of us do.
So for now, we’ll just have to wait until Les issues some kind of statement about it. But it sure is interesting and it sure looks like the real deal.
(By the way, there is a new episode on tonight in the US, 10 pm EST on Science Channel.)
What do you think about all this?
