Hot NEWS | #Bigfoot seen in Indonesia
Bigfoot (also known as Sasquatch) is the name given to a mythological simian, ape, or hominid-like creature that is said to inhabit forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest. In American folklore, Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term sasquatch is an Anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq'ets.
Scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax,rather than a living animal, because of the lack of physical evidence and the large numbers of creatures that would be necessary to maintain a breeding population. Occasional new reports of sightings sustain a small group of self-described investigators. Most reports of sightings are attributed to being various animals, particularly black bears.
Bigfoot is described as a large, hairy, muscular, bipedal ape-like creature, roughly 2–3 metres (6 ft 7 in–9 ft 10 in) covered in hair described as black, dark brown, or dark reddish.
Individuals claiming to have seen Bigfoot described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla, with a strong, unpleasant smell. The enormous footprints for which it is named are claimed to be as large as 24 inches (60 cm) long and 8 inches (20 cm) wide. Some footprint casts have also contained claw marks, making it likely that they came from known animals, such as bears, which have five toes and claws. Proponents claim that Bigfoot is omnivorous and mainly nocturnal.
According to the Mirror, some 'believers' have pointed out that while many 'Sasquatch' sightings have been attributed to black bears in America, there are no black bears in Indonesia.
The Daily Star reports that one online user said: "It's just a plastic bucket with a PERSON attached to it."
Another echoed that statement, writing: "Perhaps it's a very skinny tall person carrying a plastic bucket to the river."
However, the Daily Mail, sceptics are saying the video is yet another fake after looking at the height of the creature compared to the waterfall.
What do you think the 'creature' is?
The creature is seen walking upright through water in an Indonesian mountain range.
