The links I clicked for this thread were all dead, but I found two intereting versions of the film:
A. A freeze frame on the bite sequence, with subsequent analysis
B. Multiple enhancements of the entire footage.
Now a note on Film A, the presenter obviously tries too hard to credit the mystery of the film in claiming it cannot be a Gorilla due to the pattern
and type of canines present in its mouth. Obviously this is a huge assumption and lacks proper analysis.
Needless to say, the footage is so compressed it's practically garbage. I wish we had the original image, frame by frame, but since we do not, let me
say this most certainly resembles a Gorilla. I would say a Silverback Gorilla, but it could just as easily be a female with young. Anyone knows that a
mother will not hesitate in protecting her baby, so it would be within character for a female Gorilla to not only charge the videographer, but to also
attack him outright.
Now if this is a fake, that is all entirely possible, but the movements of the gorilla are very natural in nature.
I would never doubt such an animal loose in the U.S. Just a few months back a Lion escaped its enclosure in West Virginia, and has still yet to be
found. It's still on the loose near the Virginia border, and a Bow Hunter that spotted it claims it's anywhere from 250-300 lbs. The owner wants it
brought in safely, and no one to take a shot at it (Real lovely thinking, I know it might be a pet, but if I see an African Lion headed towards me,
I'm putting it down). Another Lion (550 lb. Male) in a seperate incident in Ohio was actually out loose on a highway attacking passing cars. He
escaped from his owners property (The guy owns two full grown African Lions). Fortunately the owner was able to coax the lion back into it's pen.
