'Bigfoot' photographed in Tampa Bay swamp

A controversial picture taken by a retired electrician has been making headlines since appearing online.

66-year-old John Rodriguez claims that he had been fishing on Florida's Hillsborough River near northeast Tampa when he encountered the creature partially submerged in the water.

"I heard a squishing sound, looked over and saw this thing walking through the water and crouch down in the duck weed," he said.

"It did not look like a guy in a suit - it was definitely an animal. I took this picture and got out of there as fast as I could."

The photograph has been met with an unsurprising amount of skepticism with the general consensus being that it shows someone in an ape suit that has been edited in to the picture.

"I've heard of Skunk Ape prints around Green Swamp, but never anything like this," Rodriguez told the Huffington Post. "My whole life, never seen anything like it."

An ABC news report covering the image and its origins can be viewed below.
