Spate of Bigfoot sightings sparks new theory that mythical beast could be real

Another Bigfoot sighting has been made just days after video footage of an unidentified mammal was seen in the same area - sparking more theories the beast could be real.

Donny Hicks owns a farm in Tennessee, USA, where a spate of Bigfoot sightings have recently been made, including a 'half-man, half-dog' creature that was caught on camera.

He was unnerved recently when he noticed that animals were going missing from the farm and he couldn't explain what had happened to them, but then he saw the creature.

He has no idea what it is, but he's scared for his life as one witness called it 'El Diablo Yeti' - and now he's shared a picture of the beast with Bigfoot theorists in the hope of identifying the huge bi-pedal animal.

What do you think about Bigfoot? Let us know in the comments...

Taking to Facebook, Donny wrote: "I am new here, but something is going on in middle Tennessee with several alleged and rumoured sightings of Bigfoot.

"Is this what I think it is or could be? It is not my photo, but from a farm hand that sent it to me - since all of my chickens are missing.

"I don’t know what to do or think here."

He added in the comments: "I truly don’t know, but I am remounting my game cameras in new pasture locations.

"My farm manager is completely freaked by El Diablo Yeti - his words.

Donny went on to say in another comment that the farm manager told him: "I can no longer work on your farm."

The image is blurry but appears to show what looks like a figure standing behind a fence in one of Donny's fields.

It is difficult to gauge how large the figure is, but it does seem taller than the fence in the image.

Analysing the picture, some said that the figure's arms seem long enough to be the real thing.

One shared a similar experience, writing: "Bigfoot eats my chickens! As many as 12 in one night. And they were up in a tree."

"Bigfoot scratching his rear," joked a second.

Many didn't think it was a sasquatch at all, arguing that it is too small but offering different theories.

One wrote: "It's something, possibly half in another dimension."

Another said: "Maybe a skinwalker? Where's the legs?"

Others argued that the image was misleading and that it actually showed something - a large bird of prey being the most popular guess - sitting on top of the fence.
