Reuters Bagged Again

Reuters has been caught altering a genuine stock photograph of the dreaded Sasquatch, which was taken by another Reuters photographer between wars. The image was then photoshopped to surround the figure with a human hand.

Then they have the gall to pass it off as a Baby Panda.










UPDATE:

Insolublog news service has obtained a copy of the original shot. *












(* Hmmm. Looks like I am more skilled at the GIMP clone tool than the 'professional' Reuters dude.)

I think Stella Piccolo would take offense to the baby Panda remark :)
