Blurred footage shows how some large animal crosses the river, and that moment was allegedly "grabbed" a government engineer by camera, last summer in Chukotka in Siberia.

There is a third explanation, the combination of the two preceding, and said that that this is a bear that is a false footage. Accordingly, author of the clip is very well knew what it was, but he - or anyone else who may later come into possession of the recording - decided to present it as a mystery, for fun and publicity.
Derek Serra, an artist for visual effects in Hollywood, who was previously analyzed some fake footage of UFOs, said that the footage, in his opinion, is deliberately blurred, perhaps to hide the true identity of the animal. He pointed out that even low-resolution video camera may very well focus on something.
"But on this recording is nothing in focus. The stones in the foreground seems unnaturally blurred, "he said.
