Is this Bigfoot? Man captures image of ‘Sasquatch’ in British woodland
Could this creepy picture be the latest evidence that BIGFOOT is lurking in the British countryside?
The eerie image appears to show a large shadowy figure looming menacingly behind a tree in a Lincolnshire woods.
Bigfoot enthusiast Adam Bird, 31, captured the picture while out walking in Friskney nature reserve and said he was stunned to spot the shadowy figure staring back at him from the photo.
After hearing of previous Bigfoot sightings at the nature reserve, Adam from Nottingham decided to see for himself and ventured into the woodland in search of clues.
But Adam’s investigative trip surpassed all his expectations when he followed some strange noises and suspiciously large footprints in the woods before capturing what he believes is Bigfoot on camera.
Paranormal fan Adam is co-founder of the British Bigfoot Research organisation and believes the shadowy figure could be the most convincing evidence of the beast’s existence in Britain yet.
He said: “My investigators and I were tipped off that this small patch of woodland in Friskney could be a hotspot for Bigfoot beasts.
“There is at least one reported sighting here, so we decided to check it out.
“We stayed there for a few hours that day and felt watched and followed the whole time.
“I took various photographs throughout the investigation and when I checked back through them I spotted the creepy picture.
“It looks like a shadowy figure stood within the trees staring at us from afar.
“It shows something dark, a different colour against all that greenery.
“I make no bold claims but my fellow investigators think this could be genuine evidence that the British Bigfoot exists.”
Although he did not spot the creature at the time he took the photograph, Adam, who has been investigating big foot sightings in the UK for more than two years, is convinced of the creature’s existence.
It was at age 15 while on holiday in Florida that he claims to have first encountered the Sasquatch phenomenon.
He claims to have spotted a large orang-utan-like creature with reddish-brown hair crouching in the bushes and has been obsessed with the legend ever since.
By carefully compiling a body of evidence over the years, including videos of strange howls and pictures of oversized, beast-like footprints, from sites across the UK, Adam thinks he has built a strong case for the beast’s existence.
In one of the videos, taken in June this year at Yellowham Hill, in Puddletown Forest, Dorset, Adam managed to capture a clamour of eerie howls on camera.
While one of his pictures, also taken at Yellowham Hill, shows what appears to be the ungainly footprint of a large human-like creature.
He said: “My main reason for thinking there is something in the UK is the sheer number of sightings. People have been reporting hairy, upright figures since around the 1870s.
“One misconception is that the UK doesn’t have sightings – but there are many.
“These creatures are seen all over the UK, and the phenomenon spreads from Scotland right down to southern England.
“That number of people, plus the ones that likely go unreported due to fear of ridicule and embarrassment, cannot be ignored.
“These people are clearly seeing something and that something cannot be passed off as simply hoaxes or known animals. This is something unknown.”
According to eyewitness reports collected by British Bigfoot Research, British Bigfoot is generally described as a hulking, bipedal, ape-like being, similar to a Neanderthal in appearance and ranging from five ft. to eight ft. tall.
Debbie Crossley Hatswell, one of British Bigfoot Research’s team members, also claims she saw the creature at close range when she was 15.
She described him as having an ape-like physique, a mouth the same as ours, a huge jaw and dark, tanned, weathered skin covered in dark brown hair.
