Bigfoot or fisherman? Michigan man stumbles across large hairy figure in river

A Michigan man kayaking down a river claims to have come across Bigfoot on his adventures, capturing it all on camera. 

The Mirror reports a man named Eddie V sent the video from his cousin to the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, which later shared it to Youtube.

In the strange video, a brown hairy figure can be seen pulling itself through the river whilst carrying a smaller creature in its arms. 

The Youtube video is narrated by Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, which shares its doubts about the footage.

"I'm on the fence, I'm not sure what this is, in the video, I'm not saying it is Bigfoot and I'm not saying it isn't," the narrator can be heard saying. 

Others share the same scepticism in the video's comments. 

"It's a heavy set man with a lot of fishing gear and waders on."

Another added "Looks like a guy in waders crossing the Cass River, a lot of people fish there." 

The Youtube video has nearly 200,000 views and over 700 comments. 

The legend of Bigfoot began more than 60 years ago, when a logging company in 1958 reported finding large deep footprints in the forest measuring 16 inches. 

The footprints were revealed as being faked in 2002 after the death of a man named Ray Wallace.

Wallace's children revealed he had faked the prints as "a joke".

This hasn't stopped thousands of people claiming to have seen the creature, or some sort of sign of it with most sightings in the  Pacific-Northwest of the US.
