Is this the elusive Skunk Ape? A retired 66-year-old retired electrician named John Rodriguez claims it is. He sent this high-def photograph to The Huffington Post: According to Rodriguez, the photograph was taken during a fishing trip on December 26th on the Hillsborough River near northeast Tampa, Florida. "I fish for gar in the river and I bring my camera to take pictures of the birds and what not. I heard a squishing sound, looked over and saw this thing walking through the water and crouch down in the duck weed. 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.".
