Dwarf ‘Bigfoot’ with Predator-Like Cloaking Ability Caught on Camera

Three people say they encountered two dwarf “Bigfoot” creatures in the woods of Washington state Monday.

Barbara Shupe, an independent researcher dedicated to “Bigfooting” with her white dog named Gabby around the area of Mount Rainier, said she was with some “members” of their group on a tour of her “favorite tree structures” when they came upon the beasts.

“Claudia and I saw a black creature pop up and run,” Shupe said.

The animal was described as having a “domed” head and no neck.

“It had muscular shoulders and it moved extremely fast,” she explained.

The encounter was reportedly caught on camera, but when they reviewed the footage, all they could see was a “translucent anomaly” in place of the purported “Bigfoot”.

“I knew the camera was on and aimed in the general direction where the creature first appeared. The problem is, what was captured on camera is not what we saw.”

The 40-seconds video shows Shupe and a group of people walking in the woods as they talk to each other.

“What the heck was that? Did you see that?” a surprised Shupe suddenly says when she notices something moving in the background.

“Something black and close to the ground just took off! It was a small one and it was black!”

But when seen through the lenses, a translucent shape appears, similar to the alien from the movie Predator, quickly moving through the vegetation and away from the camera.

“Imagine my surprise! Cloaked Bigfoot?”

A few seconds after the first sighting and according to another woman, a second “tiny creature” came down from a tree. She says her dog, sitting on her lap, noticed the monkey-like animal first.

“It was something black, climbing down this tree all the way to the ground…where it disappeared,” Juanita explains about the 1 foot tall cryptid.

“It had no tail of any kind and it was going down…I’m assuming head first. It looked like a monkey climbing down. It was quick,” she said.

Critics argue that the “cloaking ability” seen on the video could be the result of a few moving branches creating an optical illusion when disturbed by a small animal walking by. The gestalt effect is the capability of the human brain to generate whole forms when grouping similar objects together.

A similar cryptid is believed to live in Vietnam, Laos and Borneo. The Batutut, also known as the forest people, was reportedly seen by a group of American soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division in the 1970s. Kregg P. J. Jorgenson brought this eyewitness account to light in his book Strange but True Stories of the Vietnam War. There is no mention of an invisibility cloak in any of the Vietnam sightings.

    I have come across many cases like this and they are included in my forthcoming ebook ‘Physics of UFOs & Bizarre Humanoids’. It’s not a true bigfoot, but something else ‘mimicking’ a bigfoot imo.

    When are people going to learn to hold the camera still? This is not difficult at all, just DON’T MOVE IT!!!

    Really? Why are they always cloaked and evasive?

    “Cloaking” – really ? … is there ANY evidence of this aside from the sensational stories etc repeated by the likes of the “footers” and other researchers of the “para” kind ? – anything at all ?
