Long before Todd Standing's film, Discovering Bigfoot, came out he was somewhat of a controversial figure in the bigfoot community. Now, that his film is out and it is fairly popular, the debate about the evidence he presents has once again become a hot topic.  Many people think his variety of Sasquatch are real while others think it is just a hoax. Most of what is in the film has been available to view for a number of years. But it was all packaged with some new footage and formed into a documentary.

The film does have a couple of very well respected names attached to it. Namely, John Bindernagel, and Jeffrey Meldrum. Both are heavily respected in the filed of bigfoot and having them on board for the film is a major drawing point.

Of course, there are many who are still questioning and doubting the Standing film and footage.
Still frame from Standing's film "Discovering Bigfoot"
Controversial bigfoot researcher Todd Standing is back and has released a film entitled"Discovering Bigfoot". He has also filed a civil lawsuit against the British Columbia Ministry of Environment
and British Columbia Fish and Wildlife and hopes to prove the existence of bigfoot in court.

Today, I want to talk more about the film and particularly this still frame above and not really talk about the lawsuit.

I also must be clear that I have not actually seen the film and have only seen a few shorts clips from it. With that said I want to offer my opinion on what I've seen and the still frame above.

Bigfoot Footprints Examined
Anthropologist Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum Weighs In
By Dorraine Fisher

Even though critics scoff at footprint findings of alleged sasquatches, footprint evidence is still the best evidence we have of an undiscovered primate in the forests of North America. As much as some unenlightened individuals try to fake them and make fools of researchers, researchers can tell the difference.

A real print is easily spotted...by a trained eye. A living, fleshy foot makes distinct marks on the surface. The motion of dozens of bones, ligaments, and tendons move in a fluid motion and create what is known as compression lines in the inner edge of the track. And also there are dermal ridges, that are like the fingerprints of the feet. These lines on the bottom of the feet that look just like the fingerprint lines on our fingers cannot be faked. Combined with the sequential movement of a real, fleshy foot, these can be easily seen by the experts.

Moyie Springs Bigfoot
Bigfoot in Idaho?
I finally  took a little time and done a little research about the photo above. I had seen it for years but didn't really know much about it. Thanks to Dr. Meldrum a couple other photos were released of this thing. So I threw it all together into a short video . Here is the video -



Here is what little background info I could find about this photo and a couple of enhancements.

Background info - This photo was taken by a hidden camera at Moyie Springs, Northern Idaho. The property owner had noticed tracks a few weeks earlier and set the camera up. The Bigfoot in the top photo is said to have taken a big bite out of the tree on the left. The best date I could find for this was 1976.



Zoom in on the Bigfoot and some color adjustments.









Second photo of the subject. I have cropped and zoomed it in a little.











I hope this helps shed some light on this somewhat popular photo. I think it is pretty clear that this is a hoax. For more information, please watch the above video.


Thanks

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!
Thanks

Dr.Meldrum
Musky Allen stated he contacted Dr. Meldrum in an effort to get Meldrum to go to see the dead bigfoot but that Meldrum wanted a fee to go.
Here is Meldrum's reply:

"I was just read a passage over the phone from a post by Mr. Allen claiming he made repeated attempts via email to invite me to go to Las Vegas, but that I requested my "usual appearance fee" of $5500. LOL.
This is a bald-faced lie. I checked to see if I might have missed ANY email correspondence from Mr. Allen and have nothing in my inboxes. Let Mr. Allen produce the emails from me. He can't. WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT THE RELIABILITY OF THE REMAINDER OF HIS TESTIMONY?"

End Statement

So can Musky produce the emails?
