This startling image was captured by a hunter who had set up several trail cameras on his property. When reviewed the photos, he could not believe his eyes. The camera appears to have captured a close up image of some sort of creature that looks very much like an alien grey. It has a huge, dome shaped head, large, black pupil-less eyes, a tiny mouth and flattened nose.

Could this hunter have actually captured an inquisitive alien staring into the lens of his camera? If so, what was the creature doing on the property in the first place and why does it seem so fascinated with the trail camera?

Wide Open Spaces

In 2013, a trail cam set up in the mountains of Southwestern Virginia captured this very strange photo. The image shows some sort of unidentified animal rummaging through the fallen debris. It has long, ape-like limbs, no visible tail and it is covered in dark, shaggy fur. When this photo first surfaced, many were quick to suggest that the mysterious creature could actually be a young Sasquatch foraging for food. Some thought it may have been a chimpanzee that had escaped from a local zoo while others thought it resembled a malnourished bear.

The owner of the trail camera, a man by the name of Roger Williams told a local newspaper that the creature seemed to possess several human-like features “It appears that the right arm (of the creature) shows fingers as the animal grasps the base of the tree stump. It also has elongated feet similar to a man’s appendages. Its fur is matted on the back but thin on the arms and legs.”

The beast had experts drawing comparisons to this famous photo that was snapped in 2007. Bigfoot enthusiast Rick Jacobs managed to capture this striking image on a trail camera in the forests of Northwest Pennsylvania. It too appears to show an ape-like creature rummaging through the undergrowth. When this photo surfaced, several Bigfoot researchers believed it to be evidence of a juvenile Sasquatch.

As you can see, the beast captured in this photo bares a striking similarity to the one taken by Williams.

What are these mysterious creatures? Could these images really be proof that Sasquatches are roaming the countryside? Or are they actually escaped chimpanzees or sickly bears? Perhaps they are something else entirely? What do think the animals are on these trail camera photos?

There is very little information about this photo other than it was taken in Big Spring, Texas. It paints a very disconcerting picture nonetheless. Whether it’s the grainy quality of the image or the fact that it was captured at night, the little girl has a ghostly look about her. Then there’s the startled buck. With its keen ability to sense danger, surely it would have heard the girl approaching long before she got this close. It is almost as if the little girl just appeared there without making a sound.

If you look closely, the lower half of the girl also appears to transparent. You can see the ground right through her dress!

Has this trail camera actually captured a ghost wandering silently through the woods at night?
