Bigfoot Footage Filmed In Tampa, Florida, Is Another Tantalising Glimpse Of... Something

Another week, another Bigfoot sighting.

Matthew McKamey and a friend were canoeing in the delightfully named Lettuce Lake Park Tampa, Florida when they shot this footage.

He insists the footage is not a hoax and is used to identifying regular animals in the area.

Bigfoot. Or not...

He told the Huffington Post: "There are business parks here that have little manmade lakes with fountains in the middle and gators rest on the fountains.


"You get used to it. Just the other day, while canoeing, I saw a number of gators, ranging from four to six feet in length."

On this occasion the unidentified animal struck him as unusual.

"Initially, it was exciting and it was like, 'Oh, is that a bear? That's pretty cool," McKamey said. "When we moved up closer, it started to look less and less like a bear. That's the point where I decided to start filming. In that moment, I was looking at it and getting a little freaked out, especially once it started really moving."

"You could tell he was slapping the water and it looked like maybe he was grabbing something. At the time, I was just thinking, 'Holy s**t, what the hell is this?' By the time it walked off, my buddy was just like, 'Let's go! Let's go now!'"
