Bigfoot sighting in Canada: Is it real or a hoax?

Bigfoot captured in screen grabs from the video below. Is it
bigfoot or just a black dot superimposed on a video as a hoax?


Myles Lamont was hiking with friends in the Tantalus Range near Squamish, British Columbia, when he spotted a lone figure trudging through the snow walking upright in the middle of nowhere.

Appearing only as a black dot on his video, Lamont identified it as something that could possibly be bigfoot. He captured the video two years ago but only recently released the intriguing "bigfoot" footage, according to the U.K. Daily Mail

What do you think? Is it bigfoot? Is it a hoax? Or is it simply an unidentified walking figure?



Lamont, who says he uploaded the bigfoot video for the benefit of a couple of friends, didn’t expect the attention his post has generated, or so he claims.

He explained the potential bigfoot sighting on his YouTube post:
1) We were able to view the subject much better than what the video portrays as it was just a simple point and shoot camera. Contrast was excellent due to the snow behind the subject. 
Bigfoot, or an image purporting to be bigfoot. 
2) The subject was clearly bipedal and was without snowshoes or a backpack and wearing all one-colored 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. 
3) 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.

4) 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. 
5) 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.

In the video, Lamont said, “Pretty sure this is Sasquatch down there. I can’t see it very well. It’s this little black dot walking in the middle of the snow in the middle of nowhere…If that’s human, why would you walk up that ridge or that snow line?”

So, is it bigfoot? Or just a black dot superimposed on a video?
