With the advancements of modern technology, it's becoming easier and easier to fake paranormal sightings, and even mock up fake evidence. So when the team on "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Syfy) saw some very compelling video evidence of a bigfoot, they were right to be excited. But cautiously so.
"Normally Bigfoot videos are grainy and really hard to make out, but this is really clear," they said. It was a "remarkable" shot, but was it perhaps too remarkable.
The team headed to Kentucky to get to the root of the video where they quickly unraveled the ruse. A still photo of the beast proves to be little more than a bird in flight, while the great video footage was simply a great CGI job.
It's a blow to the continuing hopes of finding tangible evidence that these creatures exist. But the hunt to debunk new evidence can prove just as fascinating, and compelling to watch.
