NEW YORK — A video recently posted to YouTube claims to show “Bigfoot” walking through a park in New York City.

WPIX reported that Russell Strark claims the “unbelievable” time lapse video was recorded Tuesday after Monday’s snow storm. The city’s parks were closed at the time by order of the mayor.

Strark wrote the following on YouTube:

This is Unbelievable footage that I captured in Brooklyns Prospect Park. I recently started a live streaming / time lapse channel called Brooklyn Live Video to capture different parts of Brooklyn. I had set up a camera in Prospect Park on a side trail to capture the snow fall, today I went back and collected it and found this footage. It appears to me to be Bigfoot…. Seriously. Looks like it was taken at around 7 am this morning.

Several people online have dismissed the video as a hoax.
