Did Washington state hiker catch image of Bigfoot?
A woman in Spokane, Wash., claims to have caught images of Bigfoot while out on a hike with friends
in Downriver Park, on the western perimeter of Spokane.
The woman, identified only as Samantha, said on the YouTube video posted last week that, "while hiking, we accidentally caught an image of Bigfoot walking through the woods. I didn't even notice until I got home and saw it on the computer!" The video has received more than 740,000 views thus far.
Although not calling the video a hoax, the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization says that the "Spokane figure could be a man in dark clothes" and questions the behavior of Samantha. "There may be very valid reasons for Samantha to remain anonymous, but that's not the typical pattern for authentic footage," BFRO states on its website.
The site adds that, historically, very few sightings have been reported near Spokane, with the last being in 1985 and, before that, a 1961 incident near Mount Spokane.
