I'd have to go with fake on this one. Although I would have liked to heard audio with it...often times I find questionable "voice acting"
is the easiest path to debunking a video.
Here are three things that bug me about this one:
The attacking Sasquatch. It just doesn't fall in line with most first-hand accounts of encounters. Not to mention that springing out of the bush to
chase someone that has not detected you is CERTAINLY not the action of a reclusive animal.
The way the guy ran away. There is running, and then there is adrenaline-fueled "large animal just snuck up on me" running. I feel like when
you're doing "large animal just snuck up on me" running, you don't turn to look back after only a few steps...not to mention that the dude didn't
look directly behind him (the first place anyone scared and surprised would look), but directly at the creature some distance up the hill behind
him...which smacks of rehearsal.
The classic "long-armed Sasquatch costume" blunder. Look for independent movement from the elbow to the hand (fingers, forearm twist,
etc.)...doesn't happen here. In fact, the creature, as he runs away, doesn't swing his arms at all (which, it seems to me, would make moving a
frame that size rather difficult). The Patterson video (whatever your personal feelings about it may be) shows a large creature swinging its arms
hard to increase its walking speed and, when it turns, you can watch the right forearm twist and the fingers flex.
That's my two cents.
But, once again, thanks for bringing this one to the table, jbondo.
