The first thing that strikes me is all the credits at the beginning and end of the video, which to me scream of “Blair Witch Project”, or “Alien
Autopsy”. The only thing that dates this footage is the camera, the truck, and the clothing. I can produce several working 1970’s cameras, and a
1970’s truck with about a days notice. So my hoax sensors are already screaming. Even the way the film was obtains sounds too much like “Alien
Autopsy” for my personal liking.
Beyond that I would have to say a bear, they are very common to Michigan. Though it does appear to be more gorilla-like in its shape, movement, and
appearance. Just because the camera was dropped does not mean that anything happened to the photographer, they might have dropped it getting back in
the vehicle and recovered it later on.
I do recall there being a drive through zoo somewhere in that area in the 70‘s or 80‘s, which included some pretty large gorillas. Maybe this was
filmed there, the camera was dropped and later recovered by staff. I recall going to that zoo with my grandparents, who lived in northern MI when I
was young, and the monkeys sitting all over the top of your car.
