Adirondack Mystery Creature

This video was recorded in my neck of the woods -- in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. According to the YouTube description, three guys were up near Old Forge in the park when they saw this strange creature and attempted to videotape it. One thinks it's a black bear while another insists that it's not because it is walking on two legs. (Is it?) The creature is seen briefly, disappears behind a tree, then is seen briefly again before it is lost from sight. The description labels it as a Bigfoot sighting.


Although Bigfoot-like creatures have been reported in Adirondack Park, sightings are rare. While the creature in this video is most likely a black bear (the park has lots of them), there isn't much in the video that shows that it is clearly a bear. When it is first seen it looks like it's walking like a person... sort of. And when it emerges from behind the tree it looks and moves more like a mountain gorilla. Nowhere, in my opinion, does it really look like a Sasquatch. The video could benefit from more stabilization -- that might give us a clearer look. As it is, however, I'm not sure what this creature is.
