Is this fur real?

As most of the city remains quarantined in fear of COVID-19, Big Foot has taken to the streets!

A Bedford-Stuyvesant resident said he saw a person dressed as the furry creature wandering down Fulton Street by Washington Avenue on April 1.

The witness said the sight of the confused Sasquatch carrying a Century 21 bag made him do a double-take.

“I was simply walking to the pharmacy and stopped in my tracks when I saw the guy,” said David Berry, who filmed the encounter. “It was hilarious!”

Berry suspected that the costume, which might have been related to April Fools, doubled as useful protective gear. 

“I am guessing the suit was a pretty damn good protection from the virus,” he said. 

The sighting comes as animals infiltrate parks and streets across the globe in response to the global COVID-19 lockdown. A group of wild turkeys was seen in a California park on March 20, and a herd of goats took over a deserted town in Wales on March 31. 

Berry said that the sight of the wayfaring Big Foot relieved the anxiety hanging over him as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“[It] was kinda funny and made the whole situation feel a bit better in a weird way,” he said.
