|Declared a Bigfoot in Scotland, this was originally a Hoax in Pennsylvania|
On December 29th 2013 a man named Garry Mcteague uploaded a photo to the open Facebook group North Muirton Community Council. Along with the photo he wrote, "My dog that's usually timid starting going mental. I spotted this before 'it' ran off. I was crapping myself...but managed to grab a quick snap on my phone."
Two days later, on the 31st, TheCourier.co.uk ran the story with the photo. In two more days the Huffington Post UK would rerun the same story under the headline, "Bigfoot Found In Scotland? Dog Walker Snaps 'Sinister Figure'"
The irony is Huffington Post already ran a story with the same photo back in October 3rd 2013, under the headline, "TWO Bigfoots? Hiker Shoots Clear Photos Of 'Moving Beasts' In Pennsylvania" See the photos below.
|This is the same photo that ran in both stories.|
|All three photos were taken in Pennsyvania|
He told the HNGN, 'I'm a skeptic myself. I'm not a believer, but this was not a bear and you can see fur on it ... It's wider at the shoulders and tapers down whereas a bear is bigger in the middle and stands differently with its paws out -- this was standing like a man, like a Bigfoot.'"
WAIT! It gets better. Three days on October 6th 2013 later Huffington Post reveals the Bigfoot photos are a HOAX! A new article publishes photos of the "Bigfoot" from the same angle but up close revealing it is a tree stump and nothing more. See the photos below.
