'Skunk Ape' filmed in Florida

Footage recorded at Myakka River State Park is being hailed as evidence of the elusive Skunk Ape. Believed to be Florida's answer to Bigfoot, the Skunk Ape is a humanoid ape-like creature characterized by a strong, repulsive smell. Sightings of the creature have been reported for years including a wave of reports in the 1970s in which one witness described it by saying "it stunk awful, like a dog that hasn't been bathed in a year and suddenly gets rained on." In this new video, a figure can be seen in the distance as a group of visitors attempt to get a better look at it.
Due to the distance it is difficult to know if this really is something unexplained or simply a person in a suit, however the footage has gained widespread interest online and cryptozoology fans have been speculating over whether or not it represents genuine evidence that something may still be lurking wild in the Florida Everglades, just waiting to be discovered. A video posted in March on YouTube claims to show a glimpse of the legendary creature, as MySuncoast. com first reported. The footage shows what is purported to be an ape-like creature off in the distance of a field at the Sarasota park as a group of visitors tries to get a look.
