Is The Great North Figure a Bigfoot? No.

But apparently its not what we thought either. We made a guess and apparently we were wrong. As you can see in our original post below we thought it was caribou there is evidence on higher resolution blu-ray that it is a camera crew member with a backpack on.

Below is our original post with our speculation it was a turning caribou.

In the YouTube video you see an isolated zoomed in shot from the IMAX documentary "The Great North." In the scene you see a dark shape moving to the right.

Some of the other websites reporting this story are not offering the link to see the complete documentary footage at If you view it for your self you can see the shape looks the same as the dark shapes of the caribou in the foreground. You can also see it moving in the same galloping rhythm as the surrounding caribou. In fact, after the 9 minute and 20 second mark, (at about 9:22) it turns 90° to its left to go up the hill with the rest of the herd. At that point you can actually make out the caribou head and horns.

Below are two different enhancements, only to help you look for the image of the turning caribou in the video. Due to the high pixelation we concede it is much easier to see this turning caribou in the natural flow of the video. You will have to click on the image to see the larger version.

Last time we ignored a story like this we had hundreds of complaints. So, don't just take our word for it. Check out the YouTube video below and then go to to see the footage in context.

And, again, the link to the video is here.

    I'm the one that brought this to the attention of other Bigfooters, & it does look like a Bigfoot because it has long swinging arms. I told a few people to watch it, & now everyone is talking about it.

  2. There is no doubt it can be interpreted as a "Bigfoot shape." Everybody here at BLC talked for hours/days about the clip. Our post has been quite the buzz. On behalf of all our members we appreciate your contribution to the community and hope we did not come off too snarky.

  3. @Bigfoot Enthusiast, I want you to know, I saw the swinging arms too. That's the first thing I saw! I could truly see Bigfoot running across the screen

  4. female carrying infant on her back rather than a lowland gorillas.

  5. The only Caribou near the Giant Bipedal Creature is the dead one it flips up onto its shoulder.


Let's keep the language clean, keep in mind we have younger fans and we want to make this the best bigfoot website for bigfoot news and bigfoot research.
