Real Estate Drone Spots Bigfoot, Raises Property Value

In what has to be the best idea for improving the value of a home since the inventions of the hot tub and bathroom remodeling, a man working for a real estate company flew a drone over a property in California and ended up getting footage of a Bigfoot-like creature walking in the wooded area behind the house.


The videographer who shot the footage using a quadcopter has not yet given his name nor the exact location of the creature sighting, although he does say it was between Roseville, California and Grassvalley or Colfax, California, an area near Sacramento in the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. He claims he didn’t know what the drone was shooting and didn’t notice the creature until he reviewed the video later.

If he wasn’t aware of what he was filming, the creature seemed aware it was being filmed as it looks up at the quadcopter at one point, then continues its leisurely walk. The creature is covered in black from head to toe, which could be black fur. Or, as some suggest, it could be a black pants and hoodie. With the way things are going these days, I would find it surprising that a person walking on someone else’s property in a hoodie would continue to walk casually after being spotted by a drone.

Speaking of drones, I’m no drone expert but it seems strange that the real estate videographer claims he couldn’t see what he was filming. Wouldn’t that be important in order to make a good quality video for the client? Plus the camera does make movements. Is that preprogrammed or under the control of the operator?

So, are we looking at a video (a good quality one, by the way) of a California Bigfoot? More importantly, what will this do for the sale of the house? I’m sure there’s a lot of people who would love buy it and pay off the mortgage with the sale of videos, tours and souvenirs. Is this video real or a real estate scam?

Is Bigfoot selling it?
