Let me start off by saying that I’m not big into cryptozoology. I’m not a chupacabra believer. I figure it’s just coyotes with a nasty, new type of mange, or some kind of weird genetic mutation. As much as I would like unicorns to be real, I know they’re not. There are a lot of crazy animals out there in the world (can you say zombie ants? And zombees?), and I have no inclination to believe we’ve discovered them all. But, when it comes to the Jersey Devil, Yeti, Bigfoot, and other random things I was first introduced to on Scooby Doo, I’m just not buying it. Loch Ness, if she exists, is not a leftover dinosaur. She’s a very large eel or fish that looks kind of like a sea serpent.
I also don’t believe in aliens, but do believe in ghosts. Go figure that one out. My husband hasn’t yet.
Yet, when I watched this video of what two hikers originally thought was a black bear in Provo Canyon in Utah, I was impressed. First off, I would totally video a black bear from a safe distance on my phone. We have them here in Missouri as well, and I’ve always been intrigued by bears. Second, I too, would run like hell if the thing stood up and stared directly at me.
So, instead of paying any more attention to the final two days of this national election, let’s play “Is it Bigfoot?” Do you think there’s something more than a black bear on this video? Do you believe in monsters or the possibility of monsters?
