Is this new footage of a Skunk Ape hunting deer in Florida?
YouTube user mopower08 posted on March 13th of 2013 a video he had taken with his cell phone of what he thinks may have been a Skunk Ape hunting deer in a field alongside a Florida road. Being that it was shot with a cell phone the image is TINY and very hard to make out.
What is clear is that for all the observers something unusual is going on. There is something in that field that is out of the ordinary.
In the comments to the video he writes:
This is real footage my son and I took in Myakka March 2, 2013. We had iphones with us only. You will see actual still shots of this thing. The only editing we did to these pictures was to lighten them up some. At one point you hear us talk of two, it was deer out there hiding in the tall grass. Maybe what it was after. To see it on video pause around 2:03–2:08. You can see it in the middle at the thin tan line of grass just under the tree line. Also here you will see the deer to the left a little closer in. They seem to appear several times then lay back down.
I have watched this a couple of times and I am still not sure what to make of it. There is something there, but it is so indistinct as to make any declaration of what it is a pure guess. This video by ParaBreakdown analyzing the Myakka Skunk Ape video alludes to the fact that it may be a deer moving away from the camera so you only see the back end.
That being said, SnowWalkerPrime raises some very valid points about the Myakka Skunk Ape video refuting that what these people were seeing were deer. His main point is that Florida deer are tiny and several times in the video you can hear witnesses referring to how huge this creature is.
What is your take on the Myakka Skunk Ape video?
Is this just a misidentification of deer out in a field? A couple guys hoaxing everyone on the road? Or is it actual footage, albeit not good footage, of a Florida Skunk Ape hunting deer? Leave your comments below and let me know what you think!
