A video on youtube is starting to gain some views after claiming to have filmed what is possibly a skunk ape on a hunting property in the mississipi.
Youtube user Josh Highcliff claims he was on his hunting property on the 24th October at about 6pm hunting hogs, silently waiting for hog activity before he hears something in the trees. Turning around expecting to see a hog, he instead gets a little more than he bargained for. The video shows a large black ape like creature foraging in the woods, seemingly unaware of Josh’s presence.
A snippet from Josh’s video description:
There was this huge black thing crouched by a dead cypress about 50 yards away, i thought it was a hog but saw these big shoulders and a head upright with hands. It looked like it was digging out the stump. My first instinct was to run, i did not even think of shooting…then i know no one will believe me…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. That stump was huge and i’d guess the sucker was 7feet tall, i am a hunter and am pretty darn good at guessing size.
The video has obviously received its fair share of criticism. Head on over to the video here and check out the comments to judge for yourself. Real or fake?
