Mysterious figure roaming Swiss woods photographed.
The mysterious figure said to roam a specific trial in the Western Swiss woods for a decade now has been caught on film. However, the photograph is of poor quality. Why is it that mysterious figures such as Bigfoot only seem to be photographed using poor quality cameras?

'I came across him near the marches,' said the unnamed amateur photographer who tracked him down. 'I approached him up to a dozen metres away.

'He had a military cape, boots and an army gas mark - an antique type, I think. He measured more than 1.90m. He stared at me then turned his back on me and left in silence.'

At any rate, the man, known locally as "Le Loyon", wears a camouflaged cloak and roams the forest trail daily. Up to this time, he had been only a legend with no photographs establishing his existence.

Now, a simply photograph of the woodland perv is not enough to prove his existence beyond a shadow of a doubt. Just ask Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin who caught Bigfoot on film back in 1967. However, the photograph was enough to get local police involved in a quest to determine the man's identity and more importantly his intentions.

Earlier this year local resident Marianne Descloux, who also lives in the area, told Le Matin that her run-in with him came in spring.

'It was a rainy Sunday,' she said. 'He had a cap, a dark cloak and his gas mask.

'What could possibly be going through his head? I don't know, but it was unforgettable - and unpleasant. I hope I don't run into him again.'

A local farmer says that people are scared to travel to the woods now.

'Families simply won't go into the forest any more,' a farmer said, adding that Le Loyon had been seen regularly over 10 years. 'No one here finds this story funny.'

The man sports a black gas mask so that those who've encountered him are not able to identify his face. Le Loyon has spooked plenty of women and children, but he has never been accused of physically harming anyone. Police would like to identify him, but were quick to affirm that his rights would be respected as he has not broken any law.

Though Le Loyon has never showed any agression, police are eager to have a chat and set things straight
