Bitterly cold in January, the north-eastern U.S. state of Maine is not known for its monkey population.
So when a family hiking through snow-covered woods claimed they had spotted a strange, ape-like creature sitting silently in a tree, it was not long before the suggestion that Bigfoot had been spotted was made.
The unidentified family managed to capture what they said was a monkey-like creature on video.
The footage, posted on YouTube by American user webtech88 five days ago, has been continuously clicked on ever since and become one of the first internet hits of 2010.
