This trail cam photo from Northern Minnesota is, unfortunately, getting
lots of media attention in the Great Lakes region, judging by the amount
of people asking us if we have heard about it.
Normally we don't draw attention to cases like these (otherwise we'd be
kept very busy by them ...), but this one might be just an honest misinterpretation
The photo plainly shows a human, wearing either:
1) a dark-colored winter outfit and snow mittens,
2) a cheap gorilla costume and snow mittens.
It is definitely not a sasquatch.
There are sasquatches in parts of Minnesota, possibly even that same area
... but this is not one of them.
This news story is making the rounds in newspapers, news web sites, and
local TV stations in the Great Lakes region. You can track

Two Minnesota "bigfoot experts" were contacted by the man who
obtained the photos with his automated trail camera. They told reporters
that the photo "looks like the real deal." These two "experts,"
Sherman and Olson, are acquaintances
of Mr. Carmine (Tom) Biscardi. Apparently they are not very good at
evaluating photographic evidence, but they are pretty good at emulating
Biscardi's less-than-prudent practices with the news media.
