YouTube user troydhunter uploaded this footage of a bipedal and hairy looking creature walking in the marsh. The user said this was film at Creston Flats in B.C. Canada. We've sent troydhunter a message asking for more detail, and we have yet to receive an response.
Update: Here's more from the user about the creature in the video:
Thats all I could get, about 15 seconds. I imagine it must have been near 7 feet tall as the grass and bull rushes are quite tall.
Update #2: More from Troy to Bigfoot Evidence. Thanks Troy!
It is near a place called Nick's Island in the Kootenay River and the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area on the Crowsnest Highway.
I was driving all night long as I headed into the Kootenays. I captured this video on Thursday, June 26, 2008 5:55 AM, Pacific Standard Time; Duration 0:14:27 -- its all I could get. I had totally forgot about this footage and had later put all my stuff in storage. I just came across it while looking for my fisheries footage on the Columbia Basin.
We've actually got a number of stories about Bigfoot in the Ktunaxa (Kootenay Indian) tribe, including a few sightings over the years. I believe the word in our Ktunaxa language for Bigfoot might be Yeeka but I am not certain on it.
I had heard a colony of Bigfoot was recently found on the edge of Kootenay National Park and Banff National Park. I remember reading somewhere in I think the book was called Kootenay Saga or some other historical book about when the first Europeans came through the Rockies, that they had found tracks in the snow in the high mountain pass which appeared human like but the stride was far too great to be a human.
I know up in Coyote Creek area close to Top of the World Park, I was picking morels in the rain and heard a loud noise behind me, I turned to see a black object standing on two legs, pushing a tree down. I figured it was a bear and I ran out of there quietly and quickly, later another mushroom picker and fellow Ktunaxa had told me he was in the same area about a week before me and he had heard a sasquatch scream and it was kind of human sounding but was also different. He said it was likely that I had saw what he had heard. This was back in 1985.
Creston Flats Bigfoot
This is what's in the description:
Creston Flats (Yaqan Nukiy) looks like bigfoot, scared the heck out of me but I at least caught a few seconds on tape; here is the full footage. When I was a kid in the 70's, we found bigfoot tracks near the river very close to this area.
The Creston Valley is one of few wide, flat valleys in southern British Columbia. It's tucked between the Selkirk and Purcell mountains. This is an area rich with wetlands and the first people who inhabit this region are the Yaqan Nukiy (People of the Water).
The marshes and shallow lakes in this valley supports fish, frogs, waterfowl and dragonflies. Smaller streams tumble in water and nutrients from the mountains. The diversity of streams and rivers, deep and shallow lakes, ponds and marshes make this area an excellent place for a large creature like Bigfoot to exist.
