Umm, firstly before I post the source with video included, I'm not so sure. The movement of the creature seems very awkward and the shadow cast underneath the 'creature' seems very fake. I'm not trying to debunk it straight away, because I believe anything is possible in life, but seriously to me the shadow and movement seems very artificial. A very computerised motion indeed. Anyway, thought it was worth posting.


Switzerland, a land famous for stories of Elves, Gnomes, Dwarves, Fairies, and just about all fairy tale creatures, may have finally produced tangible proof for one creature long known as myth. While vacationing in Cama, Switzerland, Joern Hansen and his girlfriend Anne, appear to have filmed something that may leave many guessing.

The film, almost a minute long, captures what appears to be a creature many have only read about and seen in books and television. A mythical creature, whose stories have been handed down through time, creating legends and portrayed in drawings from times long ago. The video begins with a shot of the beautiful and isolated Val Cama and the valley's lake floor. After roughly thirty seconds in, we get a sudden attempt and shaking of the camera while Joern tries to focus in on a patch of forest clearing.

It's a white animal, possibly a horse, a cow maybe, or maybe even a mule. However, is it what we're lead to believe? The shot is too short and and we literally only get a few shots at focusing our eyes on the animal, as it then disappears into the trees. Einhorn, they call it.

Take another look though, what is it exactly? Is it what it appears to be? Have Joern and Anne possibly discovered a unicorn in Switzerland?


SOURCE WITH VIDEO

I have to say a total fake, but what do you think?

Lol yes shadow is a fake. Horse looks pasted but pasted smoothly. It looks like worse quality than the other bushes/tree, rocks, etc. Pretty much the other movie. Definately fake.

Hard to say without better footage. Looked as close as I could, looks like branch from the tree intersecting with the head, but I can't really tell for sure.

There's no such thing as unicorns and never have been. The legend comes from the rhinoceros - one horn.

The vid looks entirely faked.

I always though that it was a legend adapted from early descriptions of Oryx and other strait horned antelopes when seen from the side.

In any case, who knows if it's real. It's a half second image of a small video found on the internet. Without more info it's not wise to judge it either way. However, since it's never been seen before or after in the same region it's a safe assumption that it's not likely to be real.

I definately vote fake. It moved very strangely and the shadows does indeed look weird.

MajorMalfunction says a Rhino
Rasobasi420 says Oryx

StUdio thinks it was actually the Narwhale that sailors saw in the sea, and fashioned tales of a creature which was as big as a horse with one horn in it's head...
which morphed into an actual horse with a single horn on its forehead.



i agree with the consensus. a put-on,
the light reflection off the background rocks is aligned just perfectly to produce that illusion of a 'horn' protruding from a horse's head.
~at least in that still photo shown at the C2C website~

Yep Yep...I agree. Didn't they hunt them for the horn and then fasten them to the bridles of horses, on the forehead?
Perhaps I have seen too many movies...

Major, I tend to agree... I have thought that since I was a kid...

The shadow moves ahead of the "unicorn" and faster as well. I don't really know why. The unicorn just appears there out of nowhere when he begins to zoom in and from that far away, how could anyone spot a unicorn that wasn't even there to begin with to close up on? And finally, it sticks out like a sore thumb. The quality of the unicorn is different from the quality of everything else. And how did it get from extremely blurry and extremely still and crisp?

FAKE!

I call space alien!

J/k, it's about as fake as Jordan's Boobs - in that it's purely synthetic.

*sighs and throws another video onto the Fake footage pile*
Its Fake you can tell just looking at the body. Its is a Good fake but still a fake. Why do people do this?

I think they could have faked it better...
Clearly it's edited in and the fact that it runs when the cam focuses on it finally from being all shaky.

I don't have anything to add to the consensus that it's a fake. There are so many clues to give it away as a fake, that it's not even funny. I'll give them this. It's original. We're so bored with blurry "bigfoot fakes" that it's refreshing to see another mythical creature for a change. Even if it's a bad fake.




As for the origin of the unicorn myth, I'll put my money on single horned goats (see also here or here). Also interesting the resemblance between the Unicorn and the Eastern Qilin.

Yes of course it is fake.

Why do people do this? It makes me angrywhen people try to pass such nonsense off as real.

For centuries whalers would often hunt norwhale and take their horns to sell as unicorn horns. That's why the myth was able to stay alive as long as it has.
