The camera was set up by Carbon TV and the Department of Natural Resources last spring, with the intent of documenting a bald eagle’s nest, according to USA Today. That was until Bigfoot -- or something resembling Bigfoot -- got in the way with its huge, misbegotten body.
Ed Eisch, DNR Fish Production Manager for the camera site, told the paper: “Like most videos purported to be Bigfoot, it's grainy and out of focus — of course, the camera wasn't set up to be focused on the ground; it was focused on the nest."
But still, the conspiracy lives! Twitter is humming with all sorts conjecture, because, you know, even if that wasn’t Bigfoot, the horrifying ape-thing might exist, trudging through shrubs and grunting heavily somewhere.
According to CarbonTV executive Daniel Seliger, that totally could have been Bigfoot, because why the hell not: “From what we can see, what anybody can see with their plain eye, it’s up to interpretation. It’s definitely grounds for speculation as a legitimate sighting. But who knows?”
