A B.C. man who claims he filmed a possible sasquatch while hiking in the Tantalus Range near Squamish, B.C. two years ago is getting thousands of hits on YouTube after recently uploading the footage.

The video shows a black dot of a figure apparently moving up the slope of a snow covered mountain.

"I can't see it very well," Lamont says into the camera lens. "It's this little black dot walking in the middle of the snow in the middle of nowhere."

      The video is intriguing because the shape does appear to be moving up the mountain.

      "If that's human why would you walk up that ridge or that snow line?" Lamont asks. "Why would he not just go straight down?"

      "Good thing we brought beers," Lamont jokes. "Maybe we can lure him over here. I don't know how high we are, but we're probably close to 7,000 feet and this guy's just scampering up snow lines like it's no big deal."

      It's been suggested the figure is a bear, possibly upright against the slope. 

      Bear, Sasquatch or somehow staged? What do you think?
