TULSA, OKLAHOMA. (THECOUNT) — MLB player, Jordy Mercer, of the Pittsburgh Pirates, recently shared a pair of photos depicting a mysterious creature roaming around his Oklahoma ranch on Wednesday.
Mercer, who owns a sprawling retreat in Oklahoma, claims a game camera setup to film deer passing through the area, caught something that resembles the fabled “Bigfoot,” creature, also known as, Sasquatch.
This past Wednesday, Mercer tweeted two images which he says were taken on “back to back days” by the device and asked, “anyone know what this is?” The first photo, captured at 3:41 in the afternoon this past Monday, shows what appears to be a tall, bipedal creature in the distance. The second image, produced by the camera at around 3PM the next day, is a bit more distinct as it features a fairly sizeable animal that is clearly walking on two legs, reports Coast2CoastAM.
Mercer’s Twitter followers were quick to respond with suggestions that his game camera had photographed the legendary Sasquatch in the flesh. Others were a bit more skeptical, saying that the creature was probably a bear and there were some people who argued that Mercer was having a bit of a laugh by hoaxing a Bigfoot photo using someone in a gorilla suit. To that end, the second photo is pretty suspect in that it does seem to resemble a costume more than an actual creature.
That said, what’s your theory for what Mercer’s game camera photographed?

The first pic looks like Darth Vader and the second pic looks like Chewbacca.
If Luke Skywalker shows up tomorrow, that would be amazing.

Geo quick facts: Tulsa is a city on the Arkansas River, in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. It’s known for its art deco architecture, mostly in the central Deco District. Landmarks like the Philcade and Philtower buildings reflect a 20th-century construction boom fueled by the prosperous local oil industry. The Philbrook Museum of Art is housed in an Italianate villa that was once the home of a local oil magnate – wikipedia.
