Western Pennsylvania Forest Creature

A strange little video. Thoughts?

“We caught whatever this is on our digital still camera on video mode. We were zoomed in as far as the camera would go. It took off when we tried to get closer. We were startled by the result of the zoomed image, PA.”

    I’ve seen these all over the place in the forests here in Utah. When I was growing up, we always called them “human beings.”

    That was a squonk. I can say this with authority not because I’ve seen one, which would be ridiculous, but because they’re the only cryptozoological creature native specifically to the forests of Pennsylvania.

    From the wikipedia page on squonks: “The legend holds that the creature’s skin is ill-fitting, and covered with warts and other blemishes, and so it hides from plain sight and spends much of its time weeping. Hunters who have attempted to catch squonks have found that the creature is capable of evading capture by dissolving completely into a pool of tears and bubbles when cornered.”

    Go on, Google ‘squonk’ and look at the sketch on the wikipedia page. I’d say it’s an unsettling similarity, at the very least.

    I’d say that it’s a small snuffleupagus. We should investigate to see if there are any 12′ tall canaries anywhere near there.

    “Hey, let’s film a strange creature, zoom all the way in and make sure it’s just baaaaarely onscreen to the extreme right and obscured by a tree, oh yeah?!”

    My gut reaction is a post-production hoax. The camera jiggles imply that the camera was being held, not mounted. If the camera was being held, why is it being focused on anything but the creature? And further more the story is lacking in details. How did it move when it ran away? Did it shamble away on all fours? upright on two legs like a sasquatch? did it collapse into a puddle of tears? That kinda info is important for identification, but it’s just not there.

    But, all suspicions aside, I’d have to say it almost looks like some kinda sloth. Note the slow movements, the front legs being noticeably longer than hind legs, and the lack of a well defined appendage on the end of the limbs. It’s not impossible for there to be an unidentified species of sloth up in PA

    It looks just exactly like some guy(or gal) with a jacket over his (or her!) head, making the sleeve look like a trunk.
