Questionable Bigfoot Photos
Train ride Bigfoot (Picture above) - This photo was presented as being real by a guy who was on Coast to Coast radio program. The people in the Bigfoot community quickly debunked it as being from Silverwood Theme park. I will admit I don't know all the details of the photo because after I seen it, I knew it was not of a real Bigfoot, so I didn't investigate the back story. I think the main person involved in obtaining information about this photo was Randy Filipovic . Randy contacted Chris Russel about the Silverwood train ride prop and Chris confirmed that he did in fact make the Bigfoot figure for the theme park. Some of you may remember Mr. Russel, he was the person who created the Bigfoot dummy known as Hank for Rick Dyer. So, the picture was taken from a train but it is part of the tour and is a fake. You would think that this would have slammed the breaks on for this photo, but wait this is the Bigfoot community we are talking about, and yes some are still holding on that this photo is of a real Bigfoot.
Here is the next picture I want to write about.
Again, I know almost nothing about the back story surrounding this photograph. I do know that many believe it to be of a real Sasquatch. The photo has been around for years on the Internet but is rarely accompanied by a story, date or location . At first look the creature may look pretty good, it's big and bulky, but look at the unusually skinny fingers, this should be enough to throw a red flag. It would be nice to have more pictures of this "thing" ..right? Well, thanks to Dr. Jeff Meldrum we do.
Several months ago, Dr. Meldrum posted the following photos.
Photo 1 of the creature standing up. Looks to be from some type of newspaper or magazine.
Photo 2 of the creature walking in the snow
Everyone should now be able to see this is a horrible fake. The expression on the creatures face is the same, the suit is big and baggy. In fact this looks like something you would see on the Muppet Show or in the movie "Where the wild things are". But, you guessed it, some still hold that this is of a real Bigfoot. I just don't see it.
Kid takes Bigfoot Photo.
Again, I will admit I do not know everything about this story. The best I know is that some 9 or 10 year old kid snuck up within about 30 feet of a Bigfoot and took a few pictures. This event took place in Canada best I can recall. This is really a fresh story being circulated around but I have some "red flags" about the photo. To me, it seem like the figure has baggy clothes or a suit on. Notice the edges of the arms and legs, it appears kind of wrinkly looking to me.
Here is a blow up of the figure.
I'm sure thinking this is yet another fake/hoax. Maybe some more information will come out at some point to make me change my mind.
I get frustrated at the large number of hoaxes and fakes being passed around and pulled. I personally know Bigfoot is real but could all of these hoaxers just be thrill seekers or attention seekers? Or could there be something more behind all of it. Could it be an orchestrated attempt to keep doubt in the public eye? It seems that faked and hoaxed Bigfoot material gets a lot of press but real evidence is rarely taken serious or presented to the public in a serious manner. You can make up your own minds about what you think is behind this kind of stuff.
Have a great day!
