The newspaper source had a quote from a local professor/bigfoot expert who said the same thing about the video - inconclusive. I agree with this.
Regarding the validity of the video, it's not from a "UFO video" channel - it's from a wildlife photographer. That makes a hoax somewhat less likely,
in my mind.
The framing of the video seems just how a "lucky shot" would appear for someone prepared to take the opportunity.
The vehicle rusting away in the bushes near the road doesn't appear to be related to the drone operator, in my mind... there's a similarly decayed
building out in the weeds to the other side, which is all perfectly normal in the countryside. This could be checked on Google Earth, and probably
should be, to lay that question to rest.
If we take the video at face value, I agree that a deer or a human (almost certainly doing something sketchy - bizarre behavior to say the least) are
the most likely explanations. Running to and from nowhere, if human, or running to shelter, if animal/fugitive.
Most interestingly - if the video is actually of a samsquanch, it seems to give some information about speed, gait, height, coloring of the critter.
However, speed, gait, height and coloring also are a pretty good fit for a deer.
Thanks to all who posted analysis and externals related to this, especially video timestamps and stills - you beat me to it! There's a lot more info
in the youtube comments and the newspaper for those interested.
