Filmed by an oil crew working in the Alberta woods, this fascinating video, uploaded to youtube by ThinkerThunker also contains a fairly good analysis
of the footage.
The footage itself clearly shows a large dark-colored creature using ONE ARM to launch a fairly hefty tree about 40 feet through the air from a
stationary starting position!
The tree looks to be about 4 times the length of the visible part of the creatures torso, so it is likely to be around 12 feet long and weighing an
So many "bigfoot" videos just show a blurry blobsquatch, broken branches, indistinct footprints etc but this one shows "something" out in the woods
tossing an obviously substantial tree, a large distance with one arm.
Very interesting IMHO and difficult to explain what else it could be?
Yeah, I think he receives videos from loads of other sources and tries to analyse them.
Most are blurry blobsquatch.... blah blah blah
But I think that this one shows something MUCH more interesting and difficult to dismiss.
It looks like a blob throwing a stick. Too grainy to make anything out.
Now that's out of the way.
I always click on these videos hoping for something clear and confirming. But again, it's the same old videos that pop up again and again. I don't
like the word click-bait. But for me that's all this is.
Why do these videos always stop at the most important part? Where is the rest of it?
I would love to believe this is genuine and I hold out hope that it is. I just can't see it right now.
I'm sorry, but if I ask myself the question:
"Does this footage more resemble a large dark biological creature throwing a tree with one arm or a mechanical catapult/machine throwing a tree?"
I'd have to go with biological creature. IMHO
Just the way it rises slightly as it starts to pull its arm forward, then dips at the end of the swing.
That's exactly what I'd expect a big strong athlete to do, but not a catapult.
(A catapult would either be anchored completely stable (and stationary), or it would dip slightly at the start of the swing as the upwards force was
applied to the "arm" to raise the tree. I can't think why a catapult would rise up the way at the start of a swing?
Why would they set up a catapult to do that? Is there a use for that in the woods? or in construction/oil?
Or are you thinking just to set up a bigfoot hoax video?
I hear ya on the click-bait thing, but that doesn't on its own make this a hoax IMHO.
CGI when done well can indeed be epic! But this doesn't "feel" like that to me, and I see no evidence of it (unusual white or black edges to the
object, different pixel sizes when zoomed in etc)
It's not possible for me to say why the video is short but I'd guess that the crew had heard/seen something and the guy with the phone switches his
phone on to take video (whilst it's pointed down at the ground) then quickly raises it just as the tree is launched? The "Creature" quickly slinks
back down into the cover and disappears? Guy quickly stops filming to take at look and see if he "got" anything? Something along those lines seems

Interesting that he showed the guys throwing at Highland Games but didn't show log throwing...
The Highland games log throwing is called "Caber Tossing" and it is included in the video (at 9:16).
The narrator discusses the movement / momentum of the Caber tosser, comparing/contrasting it to the stationary "tree" thrower in the video clip under
