In early July 2021, a resident of Michigan (USA) named Eddie W. sent an unusual photo and video to the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization (RMSO) B̳i̳g̳f̳o̳o̳t̳ Research Organization.
The picture showed a certain two-legged creature covered with brownish-reddish fur, which crosses the river, holding something similar to the same creature, only of a smaller size, probably its cub. The photo had the following description:
“My cousin was kayaking on the Cass River here in Michigan when he took this picture. Not sure what it is, but I sent it to a few people to see what they were saying. Some say it’s B̳i̳g̳f̳o̳o̳t̳ carrying his cub, others say it is B̳i̳g̳f̳o̳o̳t̳ carrying the carcass of a deer. ”
According to researcher Kyle Shaw, who has scrutinized this video, the creature definitely looks like it is holding its toddler and called it “B̳i̳g̳f̳o̳o̳t̳-like,” although, he added, “I’m not going to say it’s definitely B̳i̳g̳f̳o̳o̳t̳. “.
“I’m not saying that this is Sasquatch, but a lot of what is happening here tells me that something is moving along the river, creating a wake, and it seems to be carrying the baby. The baby’s head is behind the mother or father. It should be on the left shoulder and kind of on the back, but you can see the torso, leg and foot of the child. It’s incredible, “says Shaw.
“The toddler does not look like a newborn; he is quite large, maybe only half the size of his mother or father who carries him across the river,” Shaw said.
Many netizens agree that yes, this is very similar to a yeti with a cub, but there are also enough skeptics who believe that the photo simply shows a hunter in camouflage who carries his dog, or is it all just a hoax with a man in a yeti costume.
The Cass River flows 61.5 miles through the Tamb area in Michigan, so the exact location of the observation cannot be determined without additional information.
Notably, Michigan has the eighth highest number of recorded B̳i̳g̳f̳o̳o̳t̳ sightings in the United States, according to the B̳i̳g̳f̳o̳o̳t̳ Field Research Organization (BFRO). Of the districts through which the Kass River passes, Sanilak has the largest number of recorded sightings.
