Unfortunately these guys freak out and run away before you can really see what it is. The way it appears to stand up is compelling, but it's hard to tell anything. It just looks like a dark lump. Could be a bear. Could be a guy in a black coat. Could be Bigfoot. If these guys had the guts to stand their ground this could have been the most incredible footage of Bigfoot ever. (Or, a short film about two guys getting mauled by a black bear.)
I understand that. We have black bears in my area and I've seen them do it. But the way it appeared to stand did not seem bear-like to me. But, again, it was hard to tell by the shot, and the way they ran off. It certainly could be a bear.
I'll have to take a look at it again on a bigger screen than the laptop I'm using now. You may be right, but I wasn't thinking "bear" when it stood. I'm sure people will be dissecting the heck out of the clip.
Hahahahaha I literally live like at the base of this canyon and I'm up there all the time, hiking and camping. There's some freaky weird stuff in those mountains, lemme tell you. There's also a lot of bored college students if you catch my drift....
Since I did happen to be up at Squaw Peak around the time this was probably filmed, I'm going to claim it was me they saw. I was borrowing a friend's oversized black coat.
