This was on AP
Im sorry but this looks like a guy in a fur suit even more so than ones that were intended to look like Bigfoot.
The anatomy is not correct for a bear and it doesnt look like a Sasquatch either.
Bears are more stocky shorter and fatter legs. And the torso looks too thin.
And its not near big enough IMHO to be a Sasquatch.
Im betting on Halloween prank.
It looks like a chimpanzee to me. Too bad that such pictures are never taken in broad daylight with a good camera.
Don't look real, by all other sightings, if he is real, he doesn't look too athletic, unlike in that picture where looks to be bounding quite fast.
This was taken just north of where I live, saw it on the local news.
I've personally seen bears with bad cases of mange, and they do look similar to that. But if that is a bear, its one funky bear with long legs.
Forget what I said earlier, I misinterpreted the direction the creature was moving upon closer inspection it looks nothing like a Sasquatch or Wood Ape and nothing like a Bear either.
The AP story doesn't have the other picture, which shows this thing in a really weird pose...

That is definitely a bear with a serious case of mange, although, bears are not that thin, so it is sure to cause speculation. Having said that and after looking at that second picture however, it looks a little like a black panther. The pictures look like they have been altered by an amateur too.
In my opinion, it looks like a badly thought out Halloween prank.
The pictures were taken mid September.
There have been sightings of a black panther in this area before, though not for many years.
Also, the thing in the picture doesn't have a tail
