What was BFRO's decision on the veracity of this video ? Was it ever debunked ? Coop brought it up Dec. 13. 2013. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb9YcIgkl_c Coop, timsan and peteyweestro felt it was the real thing, as I.

I just found it on youtube searching "I think I saw a skunk ape". Here's the link:

I mentioned this video being used on Swamp Monsters as though it was filmed in Louisiana. According to this youtube post, it was filmed west of Tunica Mississippi. Now I just read an article on cryptozoology.com about a Florida newspaper reporter looking for the skunk ape in the Everglades and she describes a "recent video", presumably from the Everglades that describes the same video! Sounds like this guy is peddling it, which casts doubt on its authenticity. I will say that it looks real to me, but what do I know?

wawa55. I think it is a real BF. One can see the muscles in his right arm as he rips a shard out of the cavity of that Cypress tree. ThinkerThunker has his cropped video of this one as well. But my feeling is when he started slowing the action down, enlarging the video, adjusting contrast etc., it blurs the video. It is not as clear as just letting the video speak for itself. Thanks for the link. Some of these older videos, HAVE been removed by the poster. Think they want some monies for it, so they'll sell it. I don't think that lessens the authenticity of it.

I also think it's real. But it was only filmed in one place, whether that's western Mississippi, south Louisiana, or south Florida. I don't know what kind of control people have over their own videos once they're posted on youtube, but somebody's lying about its origin. If it's the guy who filmed it, what else might he be lying about? That's my point and I guess I didn't make it very clearly.
