Or it’s a bear.
OK, it’s a freaking bear.
Can you douchey news outlets stop with the bullshit and the clickbait headlines?
Yeah, I didn’t think you could, but I thought it was my duty to ask.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service has this cool creek cam. We get to see an unsuspecting salmon (are any salmon suspicious at all?) get grabbed by a great big bear claw (not the pastry, though that would be seriously spooky).
The idiotic headline “Mystery creature catches salmon: So what is it?” is followed with “Debate rages over the strange creature that pounces on this unsuspecting fish”. This is absurd and disingenuous.
a lively discussion on Facebook ensued, consisting mainly of people attempting to identify the assailant with most guessing that it was a bear while others suggested a bird of prey or even Bigfoot.
It seems that the Fish and Wildlife Service believe the creature to be a bear as the footage is captioned ‘this video gives us paws!’.
Well, who are we to believe? Facebook yahoos or The US Fish and Wildlife Service?
I guess I will just grin and bear it. The video (originally posted to US Fish and Wildlife Service farcebook page) is still cool as a mountain stream…or an Icicle Creek. The “mysterious creature” is quite clearly a bear paw. Perhaps Sasquatch used a dead bear’s paw so as not to be seen on video. They’re sneaky sneaky like that.
