A major league baseball player recently shared a pair of puzzling photos of a mysterious creature prowling around his property and some suspect that the oddity could be Bigfoot. Jordy Mercer of the Pittsburgh Pirates spends his offseason on a sprawling ranch in Oklahoma enjoying a variety of outdoor activities throughout the winter months. Placed somewhere on his land is a game camera set up to film deer passing through the area and, earlier this week, the device photographed something particularly strange.
This past Wednesday, Mercer tweeted two images which he says were taken on "back to back days" by the device and asked, "anyone know what this is?" The first photo, captured at 3:41 in the afternoon this past Monday, shows what appears to be a tall, bipedal creature in the distance. The second image, produced by the camera at around 3 PM the next day, is a bit more distinct as it features a fairly sizeable animal that is clearly walking on two legs.
Mercer's Twitter followers were quick to respond with suggestions that his game camera had photographed the legendary Sasquatch in the flesh. Others were a bit more skeptical, saying that the creature was probably a bear and there were some people who argued that Mercer was having a bit of a laugh by hoaxing a Bigfoot photo using someone in a gorilla suit. To that end, the second photo is pretty suspect in that it does seem to resemble a costume more than an actual creature. Be that as it may, what's your theory for what Mercer's game camera photographed? Share your best guess at the Coast to Coast AM Facebook page.
