Did survivorman Les Stroud encounter a Bigfoot?

Les Stroud

Les Stroud is the star of the highly-acclaimed TV series Survivorman Which has become the highest rated TV show in the history of the Science Channel US.

I was reading through his blog when I came across a tantalising snippet of information that leads me to think that our intrepid hero may have heard a bigfoot.

He had just completed a days filming for his show. As per usual he was sleeping out in the wild. The entry was posted July 23rd, 2007 under Les’ Journals from the Field. He writes…
    
 “The strangest thing happened tonight when I was making my grass matt. All of a sudden a deep and very loud grunting noise from about fifty yards away in the bush brought me to my feet and put the hairs up on the back of my neck. It repeated four times and I have to say sounded…..wait for it….just like a large gorilla! No, I’m not kidding. Hopefully I’m not losing it! But I swear. That’s what it sounded like. Not like a bear at all. Like a big gorilla. I will assume it was a bear though – a mother warning her cubs about my presence. But still…..it will be an interesting sleep tonight!”
