An Ontario family has captured a video of a mysterious, eerie howling deep in the woods where they were hunting — and the clip has gone viral. Gino Meekis, an experienced hunter, was with his wife and grandson near Sioux Lookout in Northwestern Ontario when they heard the ghoulish and unrecognizable screams.
“I’ve heard many different animals in the wild but nothing like this. I grew up hunting with my grandfather for the first 12 years of my life,” Meekis said.
As is to be expected, the internet has taken the video to conspiracy levels, some suggesting that the unidentified howl is evidence for Bigfoot while others believe it is likely a larger-than-normal mammal.
Ontario’s Ministry of Resources and Forestry said in an email: “Our biologists say it could be a larger mammal — for example, a wolf — but because it’s a considerable distance from the recorder there is no way to know for sure.”
