William Evans posted the photo he took from 2001 at the yahoo group Bigfoot Sightings anonymous. He allowed me to reprint the photo with the condition that I plainly indicated it was his photo and not to alter the image itself (in writing) I believe I have done appropriately in the presentation below, I did indicate to him that I would indicate points of interest in the third photo.
The first photo (below) is the full original photo. William points out there is a figure hidden at the left as well as the more obvious face at the open area at the right.
The second photo is the face in the open area blown up to a larger size.
And the third photo is the exact same as number two save only for the fact that I have pointed out facial anatomical features of the face as they seem readily apparent to me.
It is my opinion that we have a very good example of the more apelike type of North American "Bigfoot", the same as the photographed Myakka ape or otherwise the Florida Skunk Ape.
Every individual feature of the face is a very good match for a young (juvenile) orangutan: the resemblance is less strong for a chimpanzee or a gorilla, for example.
I would conclude that this is evidence that we have a free-ranging population of a kind of North American great ape or what Loren Coleman calls a NAPE, and that we have good confirmatory evidence that it is very much like an orangutan.
Whether or not it is the exact same species as our "Known" orangutans is yet to be determined, but I DO think that they should be the same as the East-Asiatic creature known variously as Yeti, Yeren, Hibagon, Mawas and Xing-Xing. The last two terms are generally understood to mean "Orangutan".
