TAMPA, Fla. — When Cryptozoology News was contacted Monday, Jan. 26 by Matt, a man who believed to have captured footage of a ‘Skunk Ape’ in a Florida swamp, the majority of viewers were skeptical about the film.
The video, abruptly interrupted before and after the alleged sighting, has now grabbed the attention of hundreds of thousands of Bigfoot enthusiasts and skeptics alike across the internet, who have declared it is still too early to determine its authenticity.
Matt also admitted to having talked to a park ranger at the Lettuce Lake Park, although the name of this person was not disclosed.
On a 3-minute call placed to the Lettuce Lake Park Thursday, a man claiming to be a park ranger told Cryptozoology News that it was not possible for them to talk about the matter.
“We have been instructed not to talk about the park during winter,” he said, after reportedly asking a manager. “No, we can not talk, you need to understand this,” he insisted.
Matt, who had been originally interviewed by Cryptozoology News providing unique information about the controversial Skunk Ape video, is now not responding to followup questions. So far, this is the only one published interview with the videographer. Further research verified the identity of the man. Additionally, Cryptozoology News obtained the coordinates for the exact location where the film was taken, which are within the area previously stated by the eyewitness.
