I toyed with the original pic in photopaint (not photoshop). First thing that caught my eye is that there is writing on it:
Unfortunately, the pic is low quality, so there's no way I could find to make it legible:
So I think it's a pic someone picked up on the web and downgraded it a lot to make people believe it's something that it's not.
In GIMP, I did a zoom, and applied a sharpen filter, and scaled the image up a bit to make the text a little bit more legible. Here you go:
That's the same site the pic originated from. Why, oh why, would they apply a watermark so small and unnoticeable?
Can anyone explain the watermark? What's the best explanation for hiding a watermark, and making it so small and nearly invisible? Hoax?

I like this reference pic of a bear.
But of course, there will be those who see primate, which are not native to Canada, instead of applying Occam's Razor, and seeing bears, which are native and very common.
It's much easier to believe a bigfoot plopped his butt down to take a breather, perfectly framed in front of the trail cam. Gee, how often does that happen?
I'm sticking to my premise of an altered photo to make it "appear" that we are looking at a bigfoot.
And I'll await patiently for someone to explain the watermark. To me, that's the clincher of a hoaxed picture.

Hey guys, Greg from Who Forted here. Saw that that there has been some discussion on the watermark, it's actually not as mysterious as it looks... I hid it on purpose.
People snag # all the time without crediting us, so I've started getting creative with the watermarks. What good does it do if people can't read the watermark? Good question. It's not for traffic.. it's so I can call bull# on the jerks who snag the images without bothering to credit the source. When they go "no way, we found this on our own", I can just point out the only-visible-if-you're-really-looking-for-it watermark. It's seriously just to call out places like Cryptomundo. That's it.
When it came to the guy who sent us images of three-toed footprints that he claimed were extraterrestrial in origin, I put these big ass, ugly watermarks all over it anticipating them to be stolen without credit instantly. Hilariously.. they were STILL stolen, and then our watermarks cropped out so much that the image was half it's original size. THEN they put their OWN watermark on it and tried to pretend they had their own inside source. Ridiculous.
So anyway, it's just me getting creative with nabbing liars and thieves, I'm afraid. I'm not saying it couldn't be a hoax, I think we're staring at a buffalo's bung hole to be honest, but if it is one, I don't really have any inside information about it. The woman whose "friend" took the photo was supposed to send us some originals before facebook stripped all the EXIF data from it, but that hasn't happened yet.edit on 8-8-2012 by GregNewkirk because: unnecessary info

The first few posters claiming its a bear and a cub.. this is a TRAIL cam, which takes photos in intervals. If the "big bear" wasa laying or sitting, and the "cub" was laying with its parent.. the trail cam would of snapped many more pics of these "two bears". It takes more then a couple seconds for two bears to get up and move out of view from the trail cam. So its deffinately not a bear and cub.

What's wrong with you people? The person who's trail cam took the picture even states that it's a bear bent over with it's cub. YOU EVEN CLEARLY SEE THE ADULT BEAR THATS BENT OVER SHOOTING A TRAIL OF URINE OUT OF ITS ANUS AREA!
To all the dolts who feel this picture is showing a primate/Sasquatch sitting down from behind and confuse one of the bear's hind legs as the Sasquatch's arm, Why is this "Sasquatch" urinating out of its left shoulder?
The amount of ignorance displayed in this thread is astounding.edit on 7-8-2012 by AHuxley because: (no reason given)
