    Bigfoot enthusiasts have turned their attention to Washington after the state’s Sherman Pass web camera spotted what appears to be the mythical beast taking a midday stroll through the snow.

    The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) issued an alert via social media on Wednesday claiming the Cascade Range’s Sherman Pass recently had an unexpected guest wander through the area.

    “Sasquatch spotted!!! I'm not superstitious... just a little stitious," the WSDOT East Twitter account said in its January 22 post. “If you look closely by the tree on the left there looks to be something... might be Sasquatch.”

    Naturally, nonbelievers and Sasquatch search parties alike flocked to the account’s page to speculate on the Bigfoot.

    The WSDOT even pushed back against one nonbeliever who contended that the whole thing was a hoax.

    After causing a ruckus on social media, WSDOT East updated its followers the next day and let them know that a follow-up search of the area turned up zilch.

    However, the Twitter account for the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass, located west of the Sherman pass, produced video footage on Thursday of a rather large, Bigfoot-esque creature trudging through the wildlife overcrossing on the interstate.

    Though many netizens do not appear too convinced by the alleged Sasquatch spotting in Washington, this is not the first Bigfoot sighting to occur in the US as of late. Just last month, Sputnik reported that a team of experts in Washington’s bordering state of Oregon researched Sasquatch footprints and used thermal cameras to search for the mythical beast.

    Mireya Mayor, a primatologist at Florida International University, concluded that the idea that a Bigfoot-like primate may be located in the region "is totally within the realm of possibility."
