Still hunting for Bigfoot in the year 2015? Well, if you followed the Arizona Department of Transportation on Twitter, then you might have found a new lead on New Year's Day.

ADOT tweeted out a picture that sent Bigfoot hunters everywhere into quite the tizzy. The tweet read: We might have spotted a family of sasquatches on SR 260 near Heber this afternoon. What do you think?

Now, if I were a Bigfoot hunter, I would have had my interest piqued after reading that tweet.

Naturally, Bigfoot hunters from across the Internet banded together to figure out the truth behind this picture.

Ready to see the image that ignited Bigfoot hunters everywhere? Here it is, originally posted on ADOT's Facebook and Twitter pages.

This image, paired with some engagement-focused social media postings set Bigfoot hunters aflame. Is it real? Well, no, but it probably got ADOT's bored social media manager some higher numbers to show the boss.

I've met a real-life Bigfoot hunter who had a question for me on his radio show. One thing that I've learned about folks hunting Sasquatch is that they take their craft seriously.

Sasquatch hunters quickly proved that the "Sasquatch family" posted on ADOT's Facebook page was actually a group of stumps.
