Man 'spots Bigfoot' and captures 'best footage ever recorded'
| Last updated
A man has supposedly captured Bigfoot on camera, with some describing it as the 'best footage ever recorded' of the mythical monster. You can watch the terrifying clip below:
Bigfoot - also commonly referred to as Sasquatch in Canadian and American folklore - is a large, hairy ape-like creature said to roam about in the woods.
Hundreds of images and videos claiming to show the lurking figure have emerged over the years, but some have suggested the evidence from a man named Josh Highcliff is the most convincing of all.
Josh uploaded the clip to YouTube where he asked for help from the online community after spotting a 'skunk ape' - also known as the Florida Bigfoot, which is said to inhabit southeastern states.
He explained that the footage was taken approximately nine miles west of Tunica, Mississippi, on his hunting property.
Since he was out 'hunting hogs', Josh assumed it was an animal - but then he spotted 'these big shoulders and a head upright with hands'.
"My first instinct was to run, I did not even think of shooting... then I know no one will believe me," he wrote.
"It was like everything slowed down... I was scared! I took out my iPhone and started videotaping it... I guess I pushed the record button twice cause it stopped blinking red but I pushed it again.
"I hear a truck driving down the road and the thing stood up! I was trying to be dead quiet... when it stood up I could not control myself and ran."
Josh went on to explain that he guessed the size of the being to be around seven feet tall.
Although it's been a good few years since he shared the sighting, people continue to comment on the video to say it's the best of its kind.
One wrote: "Honestly, this is probably the best footage ever recorded. Amazing that it’s not talked about more."
Another said: "THE BEST VIDEO TO DATE. AND IT'S 8 YEARS OLD! Congratulations Josh. You've held the record for some time now."
"It looks so natural, like it's in its element," added a third. "When you hear the crack of the wood when it rips it out it sounds like it's got some real strength.
"Pretty convincing... one of the best BF videos I've seen."
A fourth chimed in: "I think it's safe to say that this is actually one of the most real Bigfoot video out there.
"This doesn't look like some guy in a suit ripping a tree apart. That's some of the brute force right there. Ripping a tree ain't easy.
"This is definitely 100 percent real footage to me. No CGI, no video editing just pure Bigfoot video and I love it."
