hairy-hominidsThe Telegraph reports that a hiking couple have claimed that new footage they shot while walking in the Canadian wilderness shows the legendary bigfoot.

The video, allegedly shot in Mission, British Columbia by a couple on a hiking holiday, shows a large, gangling HAIRY HOMINID possibly covered in black hair, loping over a forest hilltop.

Although filmed from a distance, it is possible to make out the figure emerging from behind a tree. It is visible for around 20 seconds, before appearing to punch a few leaves out of the way and disappearing out of sight.

The tantalizing footage has left Bigfoot believers hoping that experts can examine it and therefore prove that the legendary ape-like Sasquatch does indeed live in the forests of North America.
