Okay, you may have or may not have seen this as it is several months old. At one time this image was being posted around in various facebook bigfoot groups. While there was not really any back story to the picture, at least anything with any detail, it was said that this was the leg and foot from a bigfoot.

The following picture, a close up of the foot, was also offered as more proof that it was from a bigfoot.

Here is the picture:


I know many of you who have been doing Bigfoot research for years probably already know this information. But I wanted to share a little bit of what I have found to be consistence when searching for Bigfoot evidence.

Please keep in mind that some of this occurs naturally and it takes time to learn what might be natural and what might be done by Bigfoot. The time I spent logging helped me a lot. It's just funny to me that I find this over and over in areas where there have been Bigfoot sightings.

Of course, everyone should come to their on conclusions but the next time you are in a known Bigfoot area keep your eyes out for some of this stuff.

Here is the short video, followed by some photos of my findings.







There is another example where a stick was jammed into the ground. This was only a few days after a sighting. This limb was not from the same species as the trees standing near by. There were also foot track in this area.







You can also find arches. This arch was in the same area as the tracks and the limb jammed into the ground. This arch was smaller than others I have found.



 






I have also found several "X" type formations. In some instants the "X" appeared after I had been in the area. Most of this was found in remote area with little or no human traffic.








I hope you found this post interesting and maybe even a little bit helpful. Of course, this is not the only things I have found when dealing with Bigfoot. I hope to share more in the future.


Thanks

Hooks,TX
I got in this report of a strange smell and odd behavior from some dogs. Nothing was actually seen, so I guess this will just remain as an unknown for now.

Here is the report.

-Start Report-
Name: William ****
Email Address: on file
State: Texas
County: Bowie
Date of Sighting: 2/4/15
Time of Day: 7:30 PM
Nearest Town: Hooks Tx,
Length of Sighting: about 30 min.
How many Witnesses: 1 just me
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:
I'm not shore if this is a sighting or what it was. I was in my back yard working on my boat and I got a very strong odor of something.
It almost smelled like very strong human body odor and wet dog mixed. I have three dogs two small and one big, they barked at it and ran in to the woods with it. They quit barking and started playing, they would run in and out of the woods kind of like they had just found a long lost friend.
Like I stated I don't know what it was I never seen it. I just smelled it and the closest it could have been was maybe 20 yards. I have never smelled any one that could smell that bad and have a dog that smelled that bad as well.
Will bigfoot make friends with dogs are would he eat them? I kept looking in the woods with my light and I could not see any thing.

-End Report-

Thanks for the report, William. As for your question about dogs and Bigfoot. I have heard it said both ways. That Bigfoot get along fine with dogs and others who say they do not. I can only go by my personal experience, I had 2 hunting dogs around a Bigfoot once and they  were terrified. They would "booger" bark it and had their tails between their legs. I hope to tell this full story someday.

I'm interested to hear what others have to say about Bigfoot and dogs, please feel free to let us know what your experience with Bigfoot and dogs has been.

Thanks

Deer and Sasquatch, is there a connection (Photo: ©Dorraine Fisher)
 
Are Deer Traits And Behaviors Influenced By Predators Like Sasquatch?
And Why Should We Care?
By Dorraine Fisher

     Ever since Janice Carter told National Geographic that Bigfoot hunted deer on her property in Tennessee, it has slowly become an accepted theory that deer are one of a sasquatch’s main food sources. This, backed up by the observation that most bigfoot sightings happen in areas most densely populated with deer or other similar animals, and that deer are a large primate’s main hope for enough food to sustain it in these areas. So are deer traits and behaviors influenced by those that prey on them? Like maybe sasquatches? And why should we care?

    My grandfather told me years ago that if I wanted to study a predator (in this case, Sasquatches) I should study their food, which here, we theorize is deer. Follow their food, and that predator will be somewhere around close too.  And both creatures’ existence intertwines.

    I’ve found that to sometimes solve a problem or make any breakthroughs, I have to stop and look at the whole thing from a different perspective.  And I have a very high deer population in my area that’s very accessible and very close to an area where there has been believed to be sasquatch activity in recent years.  And I wanted to go out and get some pictures of them anyway; hopefully some really good ones.  And to get good wildlife shots, you have to think and act like a hunter. So it was a good opportunity to get in some practice getting closer to them and do some unofficial experiments.  That is, after I read up on the known facts about them. And I wanted to know if I could find anything new about them…from the perspective of a person who believes bigfoot could be roaming the same forest areas.
 
 But first, the facts.

*Whitetails blend amazingly well with their surroundings. They are a beautiful reddish-brown color in the warmer months and more of a grayish-brown during the stark winter months.

*They have a four-chambered stomach that allows them to digest the wide variety of plant foods they eat.  So they are cud chewers like cows. They don’t chew much while they’re eating, and later, when they rest, they regurgitate the food and chew it again.

*They have scent glands in their feet that leave scent trails and allow them to communicate with other deer.

*Whitetails get their name from the dense white hair on the underside of their tales. They use this as a warning signal to other deer. They’ll blow air hard through their nostrils and throw their tails into the air like flags when they’re alarmed.

*They can run at speeds that are recorded to reach 30 mph. (48 Kilometers)

*They can jump over objects up to nine feet high. (3 meters)

*They can leap distances of up to 30 feet. (9 meters)

*They basically stay in a single territory their entire lives, never leaving, unless they’re driven out by predators or human expansion. They usually run together in small herds led by an older female.

*A full-grown whitetail will reach heights of up to 3 feet and weigh up to 200 lbs.

*Their average life span is around 11 years.

*Whitetails can populate quickly. Females, known as does, give birth to one to three offspring at a time, usually in May or June. And an average whitetail can produce up to 35 babies in its 7-year lifespan.  The babies, called fawns, are born reddish-brown with white spots to blend in with their spring surroundings.

*A whitetail’s eyes see very well in up to a 310 degree wide-angle range without moving its head. But they are believed to have trouble focusing in on objects and to be color-blind.

*They have a very keen sense of hearing and it’s believed they can measure how far away a sound is by listening. Muscles in their head allow them to see and hear without moving their heads. And their ears move independently in all directions so they can hear all around them without moving their heads.

*Only the bucks grow antlers which can have varying numbers of “points” or tines. I’ve seen up to ten points. During mating season, also called rut, they use them to fight over territory and the right to mate with does in that territory.

*Bucks mark their territory by scraping bark from trees with their antlers.

Not more than 15 feet from her, I was trying to get this doe to turn and look at me so I could take her picture. But even though I was so close, she was more interested in a possibly bigger threat in the other direction. She was listening to the crows cawing about a quarter mile away sounding an alarm that there was a predator or other disturbance in the woods in that direction. Then the deer in that area slowly moved to the opposite end of the preserve away from the sounds of the crows. (Photo:©Dorraine Fisher)


     And so, if deer are a sasquatches sustaining food source, how has that shaped deer behavior and evolution? Has it shaped it at all?  I found more questions than answers, but the questions raise new ideas about the behavior and evolution of both creatures.  And these are observations of deer in my area. There is no guarantee that other deer would behave the same. I’m not a scientist, and these are my opinions about them from spending hours watching them.  You can take these and 4 and a half bucks and buy a fancy cup of coffee. But here goes.

*I’ve wondered for years why deer seem to be so terribly skittish. And I really started wondering when I nearly hit one last summer as it darted out in front of my truck in wide-eyed terror.  What are they so afraid of?  Yes, there are coyotes around my area, and maybe even an occasional bobcat.  But I wondered if either of those predators would instill the kind of terror I saw in this animal’s eyes. Just curious.

*Yes, they jump at the snap of a twig, but have you ever wondered why that is? Have you ever wondered if there might be a reason for such behavior; like they’ve learned that the snap of a twig means danger?  And to hear wood knocks seems to send them into a panic. I tried this several times during the summer with the same reaction. That is, after my encounter in the summer of 2012 when I heard loud wood knocks and heard deer running in circles in the woods, only to have two fawns nearly knock me over trying to get away from…whatever it was. Yes, deer are very jumpy, but wood knocks seemed to bother them much more; much more than even my truck door slamming or dogs barking in the distance.  Some sounds didn’t seem to bother them much at all.

*Deer respond quickly to the alarms of other animals. Very often, it’s the crows that give the warning.  I’ve witnessed deer leaving an area when the crows start squawking an alarm that I’m there.  Many times the deer won’t move out of the area completely until the crows have decided I’m a threat. It’s just interesting.  If the crows sound the alarm that I’m there, then they would certainly send out an alarm about any other predator or disturbance. It was frustrating trying to get close to the deer when the crows were around, but I also decided that the crows could be an asset. They know about all the little disturbances in the woods before I do…and they’re all too ready to tell me all about it.  Crazy questions started to run through my mind. Could they be an indicator of ANY predator that might be lurking? Like maybe even a sasquatch?

*Whitetail territory is amazingly small, perhaps a square mile or so. As long as there’s enough food and safety, I find the exact same deer in nearly the same areas every day at the same time of day, especially during cud-chewing time.  Usually older females with their offspring and younger followers.  Males tend to wander more but still seem to stay close to the same small territory, especially if the does are there also.  But I’ve heard some people asking if sasquatches migrate.  Predators usually follow their favorite prey. Deer generally do not migrate, but does this mean sasquatches don’t migrate either?  Most creatures move if their food source runs out or migrates to another area…or they’re driven out by humans.

*A deer can be brought down by a bobcat or coyote. But these predators have trouble bringing down a healthy full-grown adult whitetail.  Of course, a deer that runs out in front of your vehicle could be running from any other predator. But when they’re running at top speed in total terror, with no regard for anything else that could kill them, like your car, in areas of sasquatch sightings, I have to wonder if there isn’t more to the story of these events.

*Whitetails are said to be able to run up to 30 mph, but I speculate that they can move faster in certain situations. A friend of mine observed a whitetail running in a corn field beside his truck as he was traveling around approximately 40 mph. Of course, this was not a scientific test.  But I believe in cases of fear and panic, adrenaline may move them much faster than we think.

*Of course, gunshots disturb them, but hunting season is really only a small part of their year. Do the sounds of gunshots bother them because they’re familiar with the sound of guns? Or is it because the popping noise of shotguns resembles a loud wood knock? Something they may hear on regular basis all year long? I just wonder.


    Of course, I’m only speculating about all of this. These are my own crazy questions and curiosities.  But the reason I do this is to think about it differently and look at it all from a different angle, and to hopefully find something new to contribute.

An animal’s traits and behaviors are influenced by its food source and its danger source. There is no way this could be avoided. Animals evolve better ways to cope and survive with the challenges around them. If not, they simply don’t survive at all. So if deer are the main food source of a sasquatch, the deer have a story to tell about what’s hunting them and they’ve evolved to deal with that.
 
Maybe this all seems a bit simplistic, but sometimes it comes down to obvious, simple  things.  Sometimes the answer is right in front of us and we don’t see it because we think it should be more complicated.   Like this photo story I’m calling The Whitetail Project, anytime there’s a puzzler like bigfoot on the prowl, if you hit a wall in trying to find answers, and you can’t make a breakthrough, try looking at it from the other side of the fence.

What Are The Ohio Howls?
And Why Are They So Compelling To Sasquatch Research?
By Dorraine Fisher

    If you take a look at the population of Bigfoot sightings on the sightings map on the BFRO (Bigfoot Field Research Organization) website, you’ll find the number of Ohio sightings compare well with the numbers of sightings in the Pacific-Northwest. It’s one of the top states for sightings in the U.S.

     In 1994, researcher and BFRO founder, Matt Moneymaker, recorded these howls in Columbiana County, near Wellsville, on the Ohio River. And it’s still considered one of the most compelling pieces of sound recording evidence for the existence of Bigfoot. It has the guttural quality of a very large creature and doesn’t sound like any known animal in Ohio.

     But you don’t have to take my word for it. Listen and see what you think.

General map of the area
A couple of day ago I received a possible bigfoot evidence report from Ned. In the report he tells about a few different possible finding while hunting.

Here is the report.

-Start Report-

Name: Ned
Email Address: On file
State: NH
County: Stafford
Date of Sighting: 2001 ?
Time of Day: 4:15pm
Nearest Town: Pittsburg (NH)
Length of Sighting: 5 min
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: no

Describe sighting in detail:
My son and I were deer hunting near a large deer wintering yard not far from the Canadian border. It was snowing heavily as we were taking our evening stands. It became darker than normal due to the heavy snowfall so I headed back toward the truck on the tote road that I walked in on.
On the way, My son was also sitting on the side of the tote rd and jumped to his feet quickly as I got to him and began a hurried pace back to the truck in front of me.
We were walking in our old tracks that now had a couple of inches of snow in them.  As we got to the top of a ridge that we had to go down over, my son stopped dead in his tracks staring at the trail.  He was looking at some very large tracks that had been standing in our tracks.
The tracks were about an inch larger in length and width than my size 12W 800 gram thinsulate hunting boots.  The tracks were as fresh as could be in heavy snowfall yet without seeing what made them.  That being said, we could not make out tread or toes due to the snow falling back into the  track when his foot was pulled out.
What struck us as very very strange was the direction he came from and returned. The nearest road in that direction is a mile away over a heavily wooded ridge. He only had a few minutes of daylight left. Why he didn't follow our tracks back out to our truck and ask for a ride back around the mountain to his vehicle is odd. Considering how hard it was snowing.  Visibility was minimal even in the remaining twilight. When it got pitch dark, even with a light, he is going to have a hard time finding his way back.
Also,when he stepped into the tote road, he stepped down off a 4ft high embankment and into the road with one step. When he left, he stepped up over the same embankment with one step.  Not anything we could have done and we are both over 6ft tall. Also odd was that he headed back on a tangent line to the line he walked in on.  My son thinks it is possible that it was another hunter because they have been known to cross from the other tote road to this road during daylight.
One more thing:  Both my son and I experience the feeling of dread and extreme uneasiness prior to heading out that evening. This was evident in my sons "hurried pace". Neither of us have ever felt that way in the woods before.
Several years before that, in the same area, I came across tracks in fresh snow, of what appeared to be a hunter that had a gate that I could not match when I tried.  I found it odd that a hunter would be running in the woods at dawn in the heart of a walk-in hunting area.  His gate never once slowed or stopped in over a half mile that I followed his tracks. The tracks were in fresh powder but did not seem to be any bigger than my tracks.
A hunting buddy of my sons, had a similar experience on the same tote road which borders a huge Cedar swamp, only this person (or thing) headed out into the swamp and never came back out.  He followed it and saw where it stepped over "blow downs" that he thought was not possible. He may agree to tell you of his experience but I am not sure. It wouldn't hurt to ask.
I have one more incident that happened in the same time frame as the first report but it occurred about 18 miles further north on the Maine/NH border in October. I smelled a skunk like smell when I came to some large footprints in the mud.  This happened a mile or two from another sighting by a young couple on Bosebuck Mountain in Maine.

-End Report-

It sure does sound like there could be Bigfoot in Ned's hunting area.  Thanks Ned for sharing what you have found and if your son's buddy wants to share his report, then please have him submit it via the link at the top of the page.


Thanks

Bigfoot Track?
Possible Bigfoot track
I was recently contacted by Jeff, he had been looking and studying our Bigfoot Sightings Map and wanted to ask some basic information. I was happy to help him out. A few days later I got another email from Jeff along with some pictures and here is what he said:

"The reason I asked about the pins is that I read a couple of your reports and decided to do a little research. After studying a map of the area I set out to explore where I thought these reports might have taken place.

I had a great hike and great luck. I found an amazing stick structure along with a trackway and a number of tree breaks.

When expanding your map your pin is on the other side of the park from where I had my best luck. Although I did find a healthy tree (aprox 6" diameter) that had been knocked over by something (which was not weather related) closer to where your pin was located.
"


Jeff was kind enough to share the photos of the tracks and the stick formation he found. Here is the other pictures.




Here we see a possible Bigfoot track line.














Here is a odd shelter/stick formation. This sure does not appear to be anything done naturally or by the wind. Great find by Jeff!





Jeff also had this to say:

"....I would not have found these if it wasn't for you and your website. These pictures were taken at Pawtuckaway State Park in NH on Sunday January 18th."


As some of you may know, this is not the first reports from Pawtuckaway State Park. Our very own Jason Morse has conducted investigation and research in this area.
Here is some links to other reports from this area.

A big thanks to Jeff for contacting us and for sharing his findings. We hope to hear more from him in the future.

Strange Howls In Kansas
By Dorraine Fisher


The state of Kansas, with its flat landscape and rolling prairies isn’t well known for its bigfoot sightings. But sightings do happen there, especially along the waterways.

This video sound recording was passed on to me by researcher, Linda Clarke, who has investigated some strange happenings on and near her property near Emporia Kansas which lies near Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. And she recorded these sounds recently in an area where she also keeps game cameras going to record any activity.

When I first listened, I thought it was probably coyotes or some other type of canine, but it sounds very strange at around the 38 second mark. We enhanced the sounds to bring them out more. So please listen and tell us what you think. The sounds are best analyzed while wearing headphones.

Bigfoot & Banshee - Backdrop photo by Dorraine Fisher

From time to time I get in reports that for one reason or another, I can't follow up on in full. Be it technical reason, or time constraint reasons or whatever.  With that said I want to share a couple reports with everyone.
Here is the first one of a Bigfoot report from North Carolina.

-Start Report-
Name: Roger  ******
Email Address: email address was no good, that is the reason the report is incomplete.
State: North Carolina
County: Surry
Date of Sighting: 4-16-2014 and jan 1-2015
Time of Day: 3-45-am
Nearest Town: mt. airy
Length of Sighting: none
How many Witnesses: none
Any Photos/Videos: photos of tracks with tape measure on them
Describe sighting in detail:
I have never seen a bigfoot, but I found large foot prints in the mud in my yard. They were 15 long and 7 inches wide, with toes on 4-16-2014. On jan-1-2015 something was taping on the back of my house, I went to check it out and I heard a loud scream that sounded like a elephant. CAll ME AT ***-***-**** I live in foot of the mt.in NC.


-End Report-


The above report sounds very promising but the email was not any good and I just will not cold call on someone, I have to have it set up first before I call. I would have liked to got to see these photos of the tracks.



Here is another report of a Banshee sighting but due to time problems I could not call and speak to the witness but I did correspond with them via email. 

-Start Report-
Name: James ******
Email: On file:
Date: 1985 or 1986
Place: Cushlawn Park, Tallaght, Dublin, Ireland.
Describe sighting:
I saw a banshee when I was about 8 or 9 years old, myself and a friend name John ******* had walked another friend home, after leaving him we went to our street by taking a short cut, when we got to the top of a lane and walked another 20 or so feet we both saw it, we were very young and took off running, we both lived in cushlawn park at the time and apparently that neighborhood was built on an old grave yard. Not sure how true that is. I don't usually talk about this but was just reading this now and figured I'd add this.
It looked like what it's always described as, kind of a cloudy dirty white and floating, I didn't see a comb or anything like that, as I said, we took off running very quickly, we had told another guy who was about 16or 17 years old at the time, he went up then and he saw it too.
This Happened in Cushlawn park in Tallaght, Dublin, Ireland.

-End Report-

James also provided his phone number but at this time I'm just unable to set up a call. Maybe one of our team members or myself will get a chance to follow up even more on his report.

For those who may not know what a Banshee is I will post the Wikipedia description of it.

The banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the underworld. In legend, a banshee wails nearby when someone is about to die. There are Irish families who are believed to have banshees attached to them, and whose cries herald the death of a member of that family. Most, though not all, surnames associated with banshees have the Ó or Mc/Mac prefix, indicating their name is native to Ireland, not descended from invaders.

That is just a overview of what a Banshee is described as.





Thanks goes to Roger and James for sending in these reports. We love getting them even if we can not research it in full. Maybe we will have more on these reports in the future.

If anyone has a sighting to share, then please use the link at the top of the page and send it in.


Thanks
~Tom~

 aerial photos of where the sighting occurred (Photo provided by Charmaine)

With our recent posting of the sighting from England, we had hoped that more of our friends from there would send in some encounters. So, we are glad to report that we have had a few more sent to us and will be posting them over the next few days. For today we will share this one from Charmaine.

- Start Report -

Name: Charmaine ******

Email Address: on file

State: Scotland. UK.

County: Angus.

Date of Sighting: 1980/81 ?

Time of Day: Mid morning/early afternoon

Nearest Town: Arbroath, Angus. UK.

Length of Sighting: Approx.  5-10 seconds

How many Witnesses: 1

Any Photos/Videos: No.

Describe sighting in detail: 
 
Here's my account of what I experienced in Angus regarding a possible sighting. I have attached a screenshot (above) of the location which will come up on google maps as Slade farm cottage, Carmyllie.
This was my grandparents property and we spent a lot of our childhood there, my brother currently lives there.
The first incident took place during the day when I was sent out to get the newspapers that got delivered to the neighbors at the bottom of the road. I was with the dog and we were coming down the path that leads to the track running past the bottom of the property and out to the farm road. I have marked where I was walking with the yellow dots. Just before I got onto the track the dog stopped suddenly and started to growl, whine and bare her teeth, I remember seeing the hair rising on her back but I carried on past her for a few paces ending up on the track (the green dot is where I stopped). I looked up to see a large black figure further along the track standing with its back to me (red dot number 1). It was reaching up to a branch on a tree at the side of the track and was tall, thick build with no neck and wide shoulders. I remember standing in shock for a second or two before screaming and turning to run back to the house, as I screamed it slowly started to turn round but I didn't hang about to see its face.
Needless to say my reports of seeing a monster were not taken seriously and dismissed as it probably being a neighbor. I can't give an exact year but I was around 8/9 years old (This is an estimation as I remember drawing a picture of it in primary 5 at school) so that puts it around 1980/81 and I don't have an exact time of year but the leaves were out on the trees so it would have been sometime between April/May and September.
There were 2 further incidents around that time but they are more tenuous, one was at night when we were coming up the road in the car and just as we were turning right onto the track there was a figure further up the road looking towards the headlights (red dot 2). I briefly made out a humanoid shape and there was orange eyeshine reflecting from the lights, it was just standing in the middle of the road. At the time I told myself it was probably a person. The final incident was when we were out picking wild raspberries and we heard something way back in the woods, a long , deep wail. The adults in the group commented wondering what it was but then carried on with what they were doing (approx. location and direction of noise are marked in blue).
At that time the area to the north/north east and the south were all commercial pine woods, including the fields directly adjacent to the property. Almost all of the woods have been cleared now and there are more houses in the area. There is also a disused sandstone quarry to the north, with a water hole that was stocked with brown trout, there are hundreds of rabbits and sometimes deer around. At one time there was a tunnel that led from the quarry to Redford for transportation of stone, but I am having difficulty finding exactly where it is from records.
I mention this as I am trying to work out the feasibility of some kind of hominid being able to survive around there. The first incident terrified me, I had nightmares for quite some time afterwards. I could have possibly dismissed it if not for the dog's reaction and I can remember the whole encounter very clearly. For years I wondered what it was and have recently found out about other possible sightings further north east. I have asked my mother, who grew up there if she ever experienced anything unusual there but she hasn't, although she did say that when she was young she didn't like going up round the quarry area as she felt like she was being watched.
Unfortunately my grandparents and the neighbors who lived there at the time have passed away now. Obviously I'm not making a definite claim as to what it was that I saw but in researching the Squatch phenomenon over the past year or so there are similarities that I can't ignore. This experience has stayed with me and I find the whole thing a fascinating area of research. There are issues with the location, in it being much further south and less remote that other sightings in the north east and it is frustrating that I can't ask the people who lived there about unusual activity. I was also very young at the time and so this doesn't make it the most robust report as well as it being unverifiable. Oh, to go back in time with a camera, tape measure and internet! I would be interested to hear what you make of all this. Cheers Charmaine.


Here is the map Charmaine provided

- End Report -

In my opinion this could have very well been a Bigfoot. If you look at the very top photo you can see the area was very heavily forested at the time of the event. According to Charmaine there was water and several sources of food, so it is very conceivable that a large creature could substance itself in the area.

Even though Charmaine was young the event has stayed in her mind. It's funny sometimes how certain things just seem to stick. I can remember where I was at the day the NASA Challenger blew up, the generation before me can remember where they were when JFK was shot. Some events just stay in our minds and its the same when we encounter the unusual or the unknown. You just don't forget it.    

A big thanks to Charmaine for sending in her sighting and the maps of the area.

If you have a sighting to share, then use the link at the top of the page.

Thanks

Possible Bigfoot Track
Possible Bigfoot Track

I was up getting some wood on Brushy Butte when my daughter pointed this out. It was the only one left in the gravel pile we were parked near. The size of the boot in the photo is 11 1/2 wides.

Here is another photo of the possible track. The can is a 12oz. pop can flattened for size


Here is a map of the area, there is a lot of forest here.

Area where possible track was found.
Here is a 3D type version of the map.

Elevation: 2565ft
GPS: 43.13412°N, 123.20932°W

Of course, we can not say for certain or confirm for 100 percent that this is a Bigfoot track, but it is rather large and in a somewhat remote area.

Okay, so I know this has been going around hot and heavy but the first time I saw it I thought it was either people or small trees. So I didn't pursue it but thanks to Eric Douglas over at Bigfoot Community we can now stick a fork in this one. Here is a more current photo of this area and a comparison.


Click the photo to see it larger and yes it was only trees. So another hoax now debunked.

Thanks

Bigfoot Bathing
Bigfoot bathing?
I was contacted by John Rodriguez, which by now most of you know him for his story and photo of what is being called a Bathing Bigfoot. The story ran on Huffington Post and there has been a lot of criticism of John Rodriguez and the photo. Former FBI agent and lead investigator of the Syfy Channel's "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files" series, Ben Hansen offered some analysis of the photo and concluded it was a Photoshopped/digitally enhanced picture.

When Mr. Rodriguez emailed me, he also included some unreleased photos that he says he took that day. But before I get into those, I want to follow up on Ben Hansen's analysis. Over the last few years I have been able to speak via messaging with Ben Hansen and he is a really nice guy, so this is not a shot at him. I'm sure he has better sources and equipment than me. With that said I ran the Bathing Bigfoot photo on 3 different forms of software, software that helps detect if a photo has been altered in the form of Photoshop, here is the results of image 1 and image 2. None of the software identified the photos as having been altered with Photoshop.



    
In short, there were no glaring signs that the photo have been altered by Photoshop or any program.

There were also many asking for more photos and when Mr. Rodriguez emailed me, it seemed a little upset of the Photoshop claims. The photos where accompanied with this statement from him.

"I sent some photos I took to a researcher. They accused of photoshop which is totally untrue. Here are some bad one so thought had no value but maybe good for further evaluation."

Here are the other photos along with some enhancements and zooms I did.

Image 1



This is the first photo that Mr. Rodriguez attached to the email. It is basically the same as the one used in the Huffington Post article. The lighting is slightly different and there may be a slight angle difference. So there may not be much of interest in this photo but in the second image there is more to notice.




Image 2





In this photo the subject is a little more to the right and it appears Mr. Rodriguez was slightly closer or had zoomed his camera. There are some other interesting features that I will point out in enhanced photos below.






This is a zoom in of image 2. What I find interesting is the possibility that the mouth of the subject appears to be slightly opened. There also appears to be some duckweed on the head of the subject. If this is a living creature, could it have been ducking it's head under water? Was it bathing or could it have been possibly looking for food?

More enhancements below.






Comparison of the mouth from image 1 and 2.
Does it show that the mouth was slightly opened or is it just a trick of light and shadows? One thing that I should point out is the white strip of hair on the subjects head. It does not appear to be Photoshopped at all. Digital painting normally is noticeable in zooms.





More enhancements


Very tight zoom on the subjects face. Notice the eye, nose and mouth.

Also some have talked about the eye and the hair line.
So, I have made a couple of comparison photos using a gorilla with a odd looking hairline.



Just a quick comparison of a gorilla and the subject in the photo from Mr. Rodriguez. Also check out the nose. It is possible that the subject in the water looks a little different due to being in the water.





Eyes of a gorilla compared to the subject in the photos from Mr. Rodriguez.









Now for those who do not know the back story, let me summarize it quickly.

Back story overview
2015 began with a photo from John Rodriguez, a 66-year-old retired electrician, who claims that he was fishing Dec. 26 on the Hillsborough River near northeast Tampa, Florida, and came upon an incredible sight.

"I fish for gar in the river and I bring my camera to take pictures of the birds and what not. I heard a squishing sound, looked over and saw this thing walking through the water and crouch down in the duck weed. It did not look like a guy in a suit -- it was definitely an animal. I took this picture and got out of there as fast as I could."
"I've heard of Skunk Ape prints around Green Swamp [in Florida], but never anything like this," Rodriguez told HuffPost in an email. "My whole life, never seen anything like it."Rodriguez said he snapped the picture in the early afternoon at an area where the Hillsborough River becomes a cypress swamp

"I did not Photoshop this at all. Believe me or not," Rodriguez said. "When I plug in my memory card, it asks to import and opens in Photoshop. I just changed the name and saved. It seems like people get publicly crucified for coming forward with this kind of stuff."
 


Now, I will offer my opinion about the subject in Mr. Rodriguez photos.
First let me say, I do not think it to be a Bigfoot, if anything it is gorilla.
I can find no evidence that the photos are Photoshopped in any way, so that means that the subject was actually there. With that said, I do have many questions about the subject. What's with the white stripe? How deep is that swamp? Is it a living creature or a prop of some kind?  Could it just have been a pet or zoo gorilla?  So what is it? is it real? is it a hoax? is it something else? I really just don't know but I do not think it is a Bigfoot and is most likely a rubber movie prop type of thing.

In the end, we really don't know for sure about this subject but I would like to thank Mr. Rodriguez for contacting me and sharing the other photos. In the Bigfoot world, sharing possible photos of Bigfoot or possible evidence can cause a lot of grief.

Feel free to leave a comment on what you think about the subject.


Thanks
~Tom~
