Possible Florida Skunk Ape Footage

This Thanksgiving, while out at a recent solo expedition, Tim Fasano may have caught some great, although be it quick, footage of an upright walking entity.





THE FLORIDA SKUNK APE

Florida Skunk Ape  Here in Florida we are lucky to have our own brand of Bigfoot/Sasquatch. Affectionatley known as the "Skunk Ape", folklore and stories of this creature abound and has been reported as early as the first settlers.

 Here is the definition of a SKUNK-APE taken from Wikipedia:
The Skunk Ape, also known as the Swamp Ape, Stink Ape, Florida Bigfoot, Myakka Ape, and the Myakka Skunk Ape, is a hominid cryptid said to inhabit Florida,[1] as well as North Carolina and Arkansas, although reports from Florida are more common. It is named for its appearance and for the unpleasant odor that is said to accompany it. According to the United States National Park Service, the Skunk Ape exists only as a local myth.[2] Reports of the Skunk Ape were particularly common in the 1960s and 1970s. In the fall of 1974, numerous sightings were reported in suburban neighborhoods of Dade County, Florida, of a large, foul-smelling, hairy, ape-like creature, which ran upright on two legs.
