Myakka City is an unincorporated community in southeastern Manatee County, Florida, United States. In May of 2008, a video was taken in Myakka City that shows a large humanoid creature. The footage was posted to YouTube under the title ‘Three clips of Sasquatch’. Each clip shows a different portion of a Bigfoot encounter. The tape is similar to other Sasquatch videos, but no full body image is ever captured. For this reason, along with the fact that the footage was not posted in one continuous segment, it raises immediate concerns over authenticity.
What to Look For
The video begins with a figure sitting on the ground behind a large tree. The creature is well aware of the human presence and is getting ready to flee the scene. The first clip captures the humanoid rising to its feet. It is an explosive motion and the creature doesn’t use its hands to get up. As the figure rises, a frame by frame analysis gives good detail of the objects palm and facial profile. The second clip shows the Bigfoot slowly walking away. At this point, it becomes suspicious that the filmmaker can’t keep the camera still. However, the examined footage confirms a Sasquatch profile on many levels.
The creature appears to perform a typical Bigfoot motion, walking with its palms backward and toes pointed down. It has an enormous gait, a coned head, and a 60% arm to body ratio. The hands are extremely long and show flexibility. They are also cupped, which is similar to other Sasquatch videos. The figure shows finger motion, has white palms, and displays a familiar hair ridge down the back. At one point in the film, the object’s hair can be seen transforming from black to brown as it hits the sun. The third clip shows the Bigfoot peaking around a tree and then walking away. The tree peaking and hiding behavior is highly consistent with Sasquatch encounters.
