THESE images which appear to show a "Bigfoot-type creature" have been confirmed by officials as showing a large ape.
He said he felt something was watching him in the woodland area.
He pulled out his phone out to capture the creature after feeling like he was being stalked.
Jake, who works near the woodland in La Crescenta in Los Angeles, US, told KTLA: “At first, I heard a bunch of strange noises in the trees. I figured it was just some types of bird or something like that.”
Has a real bigfoot been captured on camera?
You can definitely see a torso and four limbs moving around and swinging around. It’s a pretty obvious kind of motion.
He added: “You can definitely see a torso and four limbs moving around and swinging around. It’s a pretty obvious kind of motion.”
Authorities from the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife believe the animal could be some kind of great ape which could pose as a serious danger to the public.
Spokesman Andrew Hughan said: “We think that it’s a pretty good possibility that it is some kind of ape.
The official added that the creature could have been an “illegal” pet which has escaped from a wildlife enthusiasts home.
He added: “People import the animals as illegal exotic pets.
“Now, that’s not great, but what happens is the animals can get out of control and they either escape or they get too unruly and the owners just let them go.”
