Explorers and scientists are on the trail of legendary 'creature' Bigfoot in the forests of Oregon.

They say they may have captured video footage of the beast in an area where 'thousands' of Bigfoot sightings have been reported.

The ape-like Bigfoot creature is thought to be real by many Americans.

In fact, more than 10,000 people have described eyewitness encounters with Bigfoot in the USA over the past 50 years.

Around a third of all Bigfoot sightings are reported in the state of Oregon, which makes it a prime target for Bigfoot hunters.
