Incredible video that seemingly shows a Sasquatch darting through the woods of Mississippi in the US is going viral, with some saying it’s the best footage of the creature ever captured.
The resurfaced video was recorded by Josh Highcliffe, who posted it to YouTube back in 2015, where it has clocked up more than 811,000 views.
In a caption beneath the two-minute clip, Mr Highcliffe explained that he came across the creature ripping bark off a tree trunk and throwing it to the ground, the NY Post reports.
He added that he was “afraid” of the hairy beast after stumbling across it on a hunting trip.
“I was out hunting hogs, just sitting in a part of the swamp,” Mr Highcliffe explained, before saying he “heard a noise behind a tree.”
“When I got around, I could not believe my own two eyes. There was this huge black thing crouched by a dead cypress about 50 yards [46 metres] away.
“It looked like it was digging out the stump. My first instinct was to run, I did not even think of shooting.”
The Mississippi man alleged that the creature was 2.1 metres tall and did not remotely resemble a bear.
“I don’t know what to think,” he wondered, asking if viewers could decipher the breed of the beast.
Many took to the comments section to express their astonishment at the footage, with many believing it was Bigfoot.
“This is by far the most convincing video I’ve ever seen on Bigfoot and its possible existence,” one astonished viewer remarked.
“I’m usually a huge sceptic, which p****es my friends off to no end. But I have to say that this is by far the best and most convincing footage I have ever seen,” another commented.
“Honestly, this is probably the best footage ever recorded. Amazing that it’s not talked about more,” a third exclaimed.
