Yesterday, I received the following message from Gregory Prina (@gtprina), the person who captured this photo.
I have 3 more of these pictures if anyone is interested, but they don’t show anymore detail. I did watch this thing walk for about 60 seconds on my iPad on a live camera feed app. It’s weird because the zoomed in picture looks like there is something behind it, but there was not. If anyone wants to see the other 3 I’d be happy to share!Gregory Prina (@gtprina)
Here are the additional photos with his commentary:
Thanks for the reply! I know you’re incredibly busy!
So I’ll tell you the story. Hopefully I won’t bore you to tears with the details…
First, I have an app on my iPad called Live Cams. It takes live camera feeds from all over the world and put them into categories. This is a really cool app. Many cams you can control and it has a zoom in/out function. You can also take pictures of whatever is on the screen.
On Saturday morning I was watching the camera at the Chippewa Nature Center and roughly a couple clicks from left I caught something walking on 2 legs, but it was moving quick. It was entirely black and big. It wasn’t running just moving it like it had somewhere to be. Normally people wobble and are careful walking in snow, but this was smooth and quick.
I watched it walk from left to right then right to left. When it was walking back I took 4 pictures. It’s weird, in one of the posts I saw online they zoomed in and it looked like something was behind it, but I assure you nothing was. It was by itself.
The wife suggested it was a hunter, but this nature center barely allows fishing let alone hunting. There’s no way a hunter would be out there in the middle of a Saturday. It’s definitely not a bear, but she did suggest an all black ski suit. I was hoping someone could tell me! It’s just that it moved too well to be a person in any kind of suit.
Anyway, I will forward you the pictures. Please let me know if you are able to make anything out of them! Sorry for the crappy resolution. That’s how they copied to my iPad camera roll.
Thanks again for taking the time to reply! You are awesome!Gregory Prina (@gtprina)
