Scott Carpenter was probing the woods of Tennessee, USA, when he felt something was watching him.
Frightened and unsure what it could be, he pulled out his phone to record.
The clip shows the moment an unknown animal raised up onto its back legs, standing at around 6ft 5ins, according to Scott.
The beast then came within a metre of the man, before taking off.
“That is really scary. I’m convinced it’s the Dogman”
Scott uploaded the clip, alongside an explanation to YouTube on July 16, where it has now racked up almost 8,000 hits.
He claims the sighting was of a mythical animal called a Dogman
The folklore legend is described as a 7ft tall, blue or amber-eyed canine-like animal with the torso of a man and a fearsome howl.
Its first alleged sighting was reported in 1887 and numerous accounts have occurred since then.
Bigfoot running through the trees. Real or Not?
And his viewers seemed to agree.
“This is really amazing and best footage yet of Dogman yet,” one viewer claimed.
Another added: “Wow impressive footage, thank you so much for sharing – could it be some type of Dogman?”
And a third claimed: “That is really scary. I’m convinced it’s the Dogman.”
It is not the first time claims like this have surfaced.
We saw similar scenes last month when a 7ft beast savaged a man’s dog.
And before that, locals in Argentina were left terrified by a mysterious creature spotted lurking in the night.
