Kayaker Reportedly Catches Footage Of Bigfoot Crossing A Michigan River

Videos by OutKick

The haters say this video of what could be a Bigfoot sighting shot in early July by a kayaker on the Cass River is actually a man in waders with a mosquito net over his head. Meanwhile, the Bigfoot believers say it’s actually Sasquatch carrying a baby deer — or it’s Bigfoot carrying a baby Bigfoot!

That’s right, we have ourselves an old-fashioned Bigfoot-off war of words between the haters and the believers. According to the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, who uploaded the video to YouTube, the footage was sent in by a man identified as “Eddie V.” who told the organization that his cousin shot the 4.7-second video.

“Not sure what it is, but I have sent it to a few people to see what they say,” Eddie told The Sun. “Some say it’s Bigfoot carrying baby Bigfoot. Others say it’s Bigfoot carrying a deer.”

My biggest concern here is that the kayaker shot just a 4.7-second video. Are you kidding me? I want to see Sasquatch getting out of the water with Baby Bigfoot or the deer. I want to see Bigfoot striding through that river. I get that you don’t want to paddle up on a big creature that’s unpredictable, but I’d have to at least keep that camera rolling and try to paddle one-handed at least 25 feet closer. Think of how valuable this video is if it really is Bigfoot carrying a Baby Bigfoot. We’re talking millions.

A 2020 report on Bigfoot sightings by state had Michigan at 220, which puts the Mitten amongst the states with the most Bigfoot sightings per capita in the United States. Washington remains No. 1 for sightings by a wide margin. Nevada has the fewest sightings per capita.

As someone who will be canoeing in northern Michigan here in a couple of weeks, you damn well better believe I’ll have a camera ready. Hope Bigfoot likes JELL-O shots and Busch Light because I’ll have a few with his name on them.

Stay tuned.

  1. As usual, someone has their camera/phone out and filming for no reason when bigfoot appears down river, in the direction the kayaker is heading, so naturally the kayaker would only film bigfoot from far away for less than 5 seconds and make no attempt to get more or better footage. Strange how bigfoot has this power over people.

  2. Could easily be a hunter geared up with camouflage and carrying equipment. It is either staged or the guy filming it new exactly what it was so at the moment decided not to keep filming but later figured to get some publicity when reviewing the tape realizing it isn’t clear.
