Officials at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife are saying there is nothing to be alarmed about, but are warning people to maybe not go into the woods anytime soon.  In the foothills near a hiking trail in La Crescenta, Jake Gardiner was startled by strange noises in the trees. He started recording the area where the noises originated, then after watching what he recorded, he noticed something unusual.

“You can definitely see a torso and four limbs moving around and swinging around,” Gardiner said. “It’s a pretty obvious kind of motion.

Officials are concerned that the large creature captured in the video is a gorilla on the run or someone’s illegal pet that was let loose. “We think that it's a pretty good possibility that it is some kind of ape,” said Andrew Hughan, a spokesman for the department. We’re not sure about the kind of ape? Is it a mutated, dinosaur ape? We’re staying out of the woods until they figure it out.
