So You Still Don't Know If Bigfoot Is Real?

Lloyd Pye Weighs In
By Dorraine Fisher

So you still don't know if you believe in Bigfoot or not? That's fine. We respect that. But just make
sure you have all the information you need to make a decision. Make sure you know the whole
story and have looked at all the evidence. And make sure you've watched lectures by Lloyd Pye
explaining why we need to rethink.

Lloyd Pye (1946-2013) was a lecturer, author, and groundbreaker in the field of bigfoot. Author of
Everything You Know is Wrong, founder of The Star Child Project, and purveyor of Intervention
Theory, which offers a different explanation of human origins, Lloyd dared to challenge the scientific
community by thinking outside the box and introducing some new ideas to the public, including
the origins of bigfoot and their links to our own origins. Sadly he passed away in 2013, but we still
have his legacy in these lectures on Youtube. Watch while Lloyd lays out all the facts and explains
why Bigfoot is certainly real.

Agogwe - The agogwe is a purported small human-like biped reported from the forests of East Africa. It is 1 to 1.7 m (3.3 to 5.58 ft) tall with long arms and long rust-coloured woolly hair and is said to have yellowish-red skin under its coat. It has also been reported as having black or grey hair. Its feet are said to be about 12 cm (5 in) long with opposable toes. Alleged differences between it ...and known apes include a rounded forehead, small canines and its hair and skin colour.

The first recorded sighting was in 1900 by a Captain William Hichens who reported his experience in the December 1937 edition of Discovery magazine thus: "Some years ago I was sent on an official lion-hunt in this area (the Ussure and Simibit forests on the western side of the Wembare plains) and, while waiting in a forest glade for a man-eater, I saw two small, brown, furry creatures come from dense forest on one side of the glade and disappear into the thickets on the other. They were like little men, about 4 feet high, walking upright, but clad in russet hair. The native hunter with me gazed in mingled fear and amazement. They were, he said, agogwe, the little furry men whom one does not see once in a lifetime."

When Hitchens was criticized and ridiculed, Cuthbert Burgoyne wrote a letter to the magazine in 1938 recounting his sighting of something similar in 1927 while coasting Portuguese East Africa in a Japanese cargo boat. They were close enough to shore that they could view the beach using a "glass of twelve magnifications" they watched a troupe of Baboons feeding and... " As we watched, two little brown men walked together out of the bush and down amongst the baboons. They were certainly not any known monkey and yet they must have been akin or they would have disturbed the baboons. They were too far away to be seen in great detail, but these small human-like animals were probably between four and five feet tall, quite upright and graceful in figure. At the time I was thrilled as they were quite evidently no beast of which I had heard or read. Later a friend and big game hunter told me he was in the Portuguese East Africa with his wife and three hunters, and saw a mother, father and child, apparently of the same species, walk across the further side of the bush clearing. The natives loudly forbade him to shoot." Without the quote, an account of Mr. Burgoyne's making such a report is given in.

Charles Cordier, a professional animal collector who worked for zoos and museums, followed the tracks of the kakundakari in Zaire in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Once, said Cordier, a Kakundakari had become entangled in one of his bird snares. "It fell on its face," said Cordier, "turned over, sat up, took the noose off its feet, and walked away before the nearby African could do anything".

The agogwe is also known as the kakundakari or kilomba in Zimbabwe and the Congo region. About 1.7 m (5 ft 7 in) tall and covered with hair, they are said to walk upright like humans.
In the Ivory Coast it is known as the sehite.
In Tanzania and northern Mozambique, they speak of the agogure or agogue, a human-like, long-armed pygmy with a coat the colour of fired earth. Although its appearance is said to be grotesque, the agogue is said to be more mischievous than menacing.

Name: Agogwe

I do not know who to credit for the picture used with this post, sorry. I find it amazing that these bigfoot type creatures seem to be reported all over the world. What also seems a bit different is that some of there creatures seem to be a bit more aggressive when compared to our elusive Bigfoot.
Most of this post was take directly from Wikipedia.

A few years ago a man I go to church with told an interesting story at church about a "creature" he seen as a young man, at the time I said to myself  "it sounds like a bigfoot to me"....well I finally got to do a face to face interview with him and ask him about the encounter. This sighting took place in bell county, Kentucky, which is where I have lived most of my life (AKA- Blackmont, Tugglesville, Alva or blacksnake).This sighting is less than a half of mile from where I live now.

Here is the interview with C. Howard.

TCC : You remember that time you told the story at church about seeing something on night going home?
CH : yeah....it was right along here.
TCC: can you tell me more about it?
CH: well I had got a ride home from being up Pathfork and I was let me off right about there (points to a house next to his current house on the main road on hwy 72)...it was pretty late at night. I walked over this way (points to right were we were standing doing the interview, this is a road that leads back to where some houses use to be up a hollow but now is a old strip mine) . They used to be a swinging bridge here and we had to cross it to get to the house.

CH: Well, I started across the bridge and got almost half way and I noticed something over to the left ......it was 2 big red glowing eyes.(He points to a small stream that feeds into the main creek)

TCC: could you tell how tall or how high the eyes were off the ground?
CH: No ..it was hard to tell because I was up on the bridge.
TCC: what happen next?

CH: I was scared and ran on across the bridge and once to the other side I ran on towards the house.

TCC: what happen to the thing you saw?
CH: It was chasing me! It was a pretty good ways up to the house and once I got there I ran into the house...I don't know what I would have done if the door had been locked.

TCC: well do you think this was a dog or something?
CH: no it wasn't a dog.
TCC: do you think it was something running on all fours?
CH: On no....it wasn't running like a dog or anything....it was running on 2 feet and it was big.
TCC: sound like it could have been a bigfoot.
CH: It was scary...I was scared to death.
TCC: about how long ago was this, what year?
CH: well I was young....a teenager.. it was scary..that was in 40's.(TCC- this area had been an old mining camp that used push carts to move coal, and folks lived and worked there.)
TCC: well sometimes bigfoots stay in an area for a long time...I might come down and look around some if you don't care?
CH: yeah...that be fine.

Then I told him I had to run and we exchanged goodbyes and I left.

TCC says:  This could have very well been a bigfoot, it could have been next to the creek drinking water or trying to catch crawfish or fish...This person is a truthful person and we believe his story.

The Crypto Crew's Bobby and Corinna Long recently found a possible bigfoot track way. They have now went back to the area and cast one of the tracks.
Here are the photos from the casting.

Here it is after they got the cast home.

looks to be about 13 inches long and about 6 inches wide.

There was a bunch of pine needles in the area so the cast has a ton of pine needles in it. After a little cleaning I'm sure it will look even better. There's not a whole lot of detail in the track but it's still pretty cool.

UPDATE: I forgot to tell everyone these were found in South Caroline. The land has lots of deer and has a lake on each side of it.

I was contacted by some friends, who I will not name, and they had found some odd stick structures on their property. This is private land and it is kind of set back and out of the way from my understanding.
They sent me 3 photos of these formations and it appears that something has made these and that it is not just a natural tree breakage and landing.
Could they be having bigfoot activity on their property? What do you guys think?

Photo 1

Photo 2

photo 3

Maybe some of this could be just a natural occurring formations but I kind of doubt it. If these types of formations are made by bigfoot, what do they mean?

Some theories suggest that formations like this are either directions markers, territorial markers or possibly warnings.
I wonder if some of these, especially photo 3, are made by juvenile bigfoot our of boredom.
Some have ask if any tracks have been found on the property and to my knowledge none have been found but I do not think a wide search has been conducted yet.

I just wanted to share these and see if anyone had much to say about them. Have any of you other researchers found similar formations? if so let me know.

Bigfoot Sighting In Illinois?
Assessing The Possibilities In My Neck Of The Woods
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
            My home state of Illinois isn’t the most well-known state for its bigfoot sightings, but sightings do take place here. And in areas where there is virtually no wilderness. And this has led me and researchers in this state to believe they don’t really need wilderness to thrive. And there were “wild man” reports in my area down through history. But the cast of Finding Bigfoot left Illinois very unsure of its existence here.
            But in central Illinois where I live, the terrain is mostly flat or with rolling hills.  There are many pockets of forest that dot the landscape. Some connect to each other and could create a hidden route for a large creature. And where they don’t connect,  part of the year they’re covered in rows of corn. This could create numerous hidden routes with good cover when the corn is tall, which is most of the summer.  Many areas are teeming with deer that also use the corn rows as cover to trek across areas where they might normally be seen. It’s great terrain for a large animal to hide.
            I don’t believe this is a hotbed habitat for Bigfoot, but I think they are here. And I think we don’t give them enough credit for being able to survive and adapt to many different types of habitat, and perhaps exist closer to humans than we might think.
            Case in point: An unidentified witness recently reported an interesting sighting in Schuyler County,  near Rushville (where I was born) in west-central Illinois that took place in 2000.  The witness claimed to have seen the creature in the headlights as he/she was driving north on Route 67,  just a little past Rushville. The witness allegedly saw a 7-foot, dark, muscular figure on two legs bend over and pick up something close to the road and was cradling it like a human would a baby. The creature then quickly ran for the woods with the bundle in its arms.
            This is an area I’m very familiar with. The area described by the witness is situated somewhat in between two of my family’s farms. It’s not wilderness, but it’s VERY rural. I’ve hiked some of the area’s woods and I haven’t seen Bigfoot. But I have had what I would call “experiences” out there that would lead me to believe there’s something to the reports. Large snapping trees, the feeling of being watched, sounds of large footsteps, etc.  And knowing the denseness of the woods as I do, and the deer population,  I believe firmly that Bigfoots could survive there very well.
            Who’s to say we don’t have a different strain of the creature here?  Maybe a strain that’s better adapted to living closer to humans? Reports suggest they exist in any areas in the world that provide cover. And there’s plenty of that in my area. It’s just situated differently and offers a different kind of challenge for hiding. But a smart creature could do it, I believe.
            And I also think the cast of Finding Bigfoot needs to change the way they think about Bigfoot in non-wilderness areas, and give Illinois a closer look. *******DF

This is an older video but it is a pretty good one. I don't really know much about this video. Take notice to the hands in the slow down clip. Also for some reason there was a little encoding error and the video really gets pixelated for a few seconds.

Bigfoot in OK

This investigation/research by TCC Team Members Bobby & Corinna Long
Both are avid outdoors people and good researchers.

1984 - Two young girls (Carla and Toni) both 12 at the time, came within 15 feet of a large Sasquatch while checking out some caves.
They were camping near Great salt plains lake in western Oklahoma. Them and their parents found several large tracks the next morning all around their camping spot.

They reported the incident to park rangers - the Rangers had fences put up to hinder access to the caves the very same day.

She says she still has nightmares of that day. She also stated that there were most likely more there because of the amount of tracks.
This report comes from an old friend who lives in Jay, Oklahoma.
I feel she is being truthful.

Dr. John Mionczynski:

"In 41 years of cataloging and following up on sasquatch reports, I have noticed enough consistent elements in the evidence to conclude that this species like any other species of wildlife has predictive characteristics of behavior and food habitats.

One of the more interesting observations that sets it apart from other wildlife is the presence of the remains of prey animals with a particular kind of disarticulation of the spine as the apparent cause of death in areas that have a history of credible sasquatch sighting reports.  The break occurs in the neck between the first and second cervical vertebrae and is not isolated to one species of ungulate prey."

Tom - This is a very interesting report please take some times and read it.

This is a youtube video discussing the supposed announcement of a body of a Bigfoot upon its first examination by supposedly qualified people:
Now the question is, are the supporters of this alleged incident providing trustworthy reports of their claim?
Well, the first thing I had noticed was that the illustration is ripped off of another report from Canada and reproduced without credit: I had previously posted the report and the illustration on my blog with due credit and so I recognized it. So the representation that this is "Their" Bigfoot body is already fraudulent and a deliberate attempt at deception while using somebody else's illustration in a manner the artist certainly would not have intended.Then there is a protracted matter of why their expert was one Musky Allen (of no especial credentials and no especial standing in either the Scientific nor yet in the Bigfooting community) instead of a previously-proposed Dr Don Jeffrey Meldrum. The answer was interesting in that it pointed up further lies and evasions.

So, what did Alan Musky really say about Dr. Meldrum? His latest statement sounds as if there had been a big misunderstanding, but clearly that was not the case. Here is what Alan Musky posted on a Facebook page called Bigfoot Warz yesterday : (click photo to enlarge)

 And then his attempt to "Correct" the statement on FB/FB

And then there is what Dr Meldrum posted in reply

It definitely seems that Musky lied about his communications to Dr. Meldrum and that Dr. Meldrum called him on the allegation. It seems Dr Meldrum carried the day and that furthermore Musky is not to be trusted, as Dr Meldrum says in his statement.
This particular exchange does not question Rick Dyer directly, but it does completely undermine the reliability of the witness he called upon for support of his position and expert testimony, when obviously he provides neither. Without Musky's word on it, we are left with Dyer's word alone, and actually that much alone is not good enough. He is already suspect from his involvement in the 2008 hoax when a different supposed Bigfoot body turned out to be a costume in an abandoned refrigerator with some entrails added to give the exhibit the air of authority.

Raymond and Newmarket are only about 10-15 minutes apart

As some of you may know, Jason Morse of The Crypto Crew has been researching and investigating bigfoot reports in New Hampshire, namely around Newmarket.

Jason recently took in a report of a possible sighting in that area, post can be read HERE, that we think may be the same bigfoot in some earlier reports.

Here is some of Jason's earlier reports and investigation work - HERE  & HERE & HERE.
These post include photo and details about the investigation. We even have some possible bigfoot sound recorded and I will post the video at the end of this post.

Now we have gotten a new sighting report coming from Raymond, NH. I'm told this is around 10-15 minutes from Newmarket, where there has been several sighting and some evidence.
Here is the report I received via email and my exchange with the person.

D said - " I would like to know if the sighting from nh in march of 2012 was in Raymond nh?  My husband had a weird experience by a swamp  last month that looks very familiar to the ones in the pictures. We have also heard some unusual noises input area. Not sure if we are just reading into things, but we usually don't believe in these things.  Look  forward to your reply."

My reply - "These sighting were in and around Newmarket. I don't know how close that is to Raymond"

D replied - "It's about 10 miles away.  My husband said he saw what looked like a bear on two legs cross the street where there is a swampy area on both sides early one morning.
Two days later I heard what sounded like a bull in the woods. And the next night I left to run an errand and came home to an awful odor  outside. Ten minutes later when I put my dog out it was gone."

I am still trying to gather information about this sighting and will update any important info. The activity in New Hampshire has been good over the last year and we will continue to investigate.

Here is the video of the possible Bigfoot sounds

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.

First Photo

The second photo is the face in the open area blown up to a larger size.

Second Photo

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.

Third Photo

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".

I Uploaded this in 720p HD ...so please adjust the settings.
Ok,  I know alot of experts have looked at this video and many are saying or hoping it is a real bigfoot, but after looking at it more it appears to just be a person. I'm not an expert and I know the video is never as clear on youtube as it is while i'm watching it on my computer but all I can see is a person jumping around. I think most are calling this the "Russian Jumping Bigfoot" or something to that effect.  If you watch the part over a few times of when the "bigfoot" first jumps out you can see the white shirt and the different color pants.

Love him or Hate him, Rick Dyer and the Tent video caused a stir among the bigfoot community.
Now it seem the video will be released by a British film company called Minnow films.
Minnow Films has been filming with Dyer and many other Bigfoot groups all over the world for the past 4 Years. The film group was reportedly with Dyer on September 6, 2012 in San Antonio, TX  when the now famous Tent video was shot.
The working title of the upcoming release is "Of Men and Monsters".

I went to the Minnow Films website, Found Here , and indeed the title is in production.
The tag line is "A fascinating and touching portrait of men who are obsessed with monsters and their adventures to find them"

Just who is Minnow Films?
His is what their website says about them:
"Minnow Films is an award-winning independent production company, renowned for its sensitive and intelligent portrayal of powerful human stories. Founded in 2006 by filmmaker Morgan Matthews, Minnow quickly established a reputation for bringing a fresh take to challenging and moving stories, such as the BAFTA and RTS winning The Fallen, a film described by the BBC as their most ambitious single documentary film to date."

More can be found about them from the links above."

After I watched the black and white version of the Tent video I was sure it was some type of suit and we were being played but after the HD color version came out and I watched it , I was not so sure anymore.
So I for one would like to see the entire video and the story surrounding it. It could be a very important piece of evidence or at least let me make a better judgment of the film.

Five-Year Genome Study Yields Evidence of Homo sapiens/Unknown Hominin Hybrid Species in North America

Contact: Robin Lynne, media@dnadiagnostics.com, 231.622.5362

DALLAS, Nov. 24--A team of scientists can verify that their 5-year long DNA study, currently under peer-review, confirms the existence of a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch,” living in North America. Researchers’ extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.

The study was conducted by a team of experts in genetics, forensics, imaging and pathology, led by Dr. Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches, TX. In response to recent interest in the study, Dr. Ketchum can confirm that her team has sequenced 3 complete Sasquatch nuclear genomes and determined the species is a human hybrid:

“Our study has sequenced 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species. Our data indicate that the North American Sasquatch is a hybrid species, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.

Hominins are members of the taxonomic grouping Hominini, which includes all members of the genus Homo. Genetic testing has already ruled out Homo neanderthalis and the Denisova hominin as contributors to Sasquatch mtDNA or nuDNA. “The male progenitor that contributed the unknown sequence to this hybrid is unique as its DNA is more distantly removed from humans than other recently discovered hominins like the Denisovan individual,” explains Ketchum.

“Sasquatch nuclear DNA is incredibly novel and not at all what we had expected. While it has human nuclear DNA within its genome, there are also distinctly non-human, non-archaic hominin, and non-ape sequences. We describe it as a mosaic of human and novel non-human sequence. Further study is needed and is ongoing to better characterize and understand Sasquatch nuclear DNA.”

Ketchum is a veterinarian whose professional experience includes 27 years of research in genetics, including forensics. Early in her career she also practiced veterinary medicine, and she has previously been published as a participant in mapping the equine genome. She began testing the DNA of purported Sasquatch hair samples 5 years ago.

Ketchum calls on public officials and law enforcement to immediately recognize the Sasquatch as an indigenous people:

“Genetically, the Sasquatch are a human hybrid with unambiguously modern human maternal ancestry. Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights against those who would see in their physical and cultural differences a ‘license’ to hunt, trap, or kill them.”

Full details of the study will be presented in the near future when the study manuscript publishes.
TCC -   Well where is the News media? Still not too excited yet. If all is true then the protection laws should be a  a sure thing.

Minnesota Bigfoot Sighting it was near St. Croix River best I can recall.
Filmed with an iphone on 7/6/11 by a farmer and his wife as they walked near the woods next to a hayfield. The the video is only about 5 second long but pretty interesting. Could it be real bigfoot?
I really don't know who to credit for this video as it has been around a while...sorry.

"This video was recorded in Litchfeild County, CT on November 17th by a freind who's a professional wedding photographer using the video function on his DSLR. We had heard something at the garbage cans - thought it was a bear, and stayed in the house and filmed out a window. By the time we had the camera out the thing was accross the road at the edge of a farm feild. At first it DOES look like a bear - but than it stands up totally erect (or at least it seems that way to us) and goes up and down a bit then takes off running. We were scared Sh#$%-less. We called the animal control guy, who just said that if it comes back call him while it's there. It could still be a bear - but it's movements are so strange... we all swear it was bigfoot - even though we think that bigfoot is B.S. We just don't know what to think. No more fish in the garbage!"

TCC - This a new fake bigfoot video. Big loose suit. But it makes me wonder just how many people will swear on their life it's real?

Terror In Tennessee!
The Flintville, Tennessee Monster
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Monsters in Tenn.
             Tennessee is known for a lot of things: Elvis, country music, and beautiful green rolling hills. There usually isn’t much talk about monsters there. But there was a lot of it in 1997 when a supposed bigfoot began attacking cars, trying to kidnap small children, and snatching livestock in the little town of Flintville.

            Most reports of bigfoot sightings don’t tell tales of a creature truly believed to be dangerous to humans, but residents of Flintville were terrorized by the monster and in fear for their lives for more than twenty years.

            It all started back in 1976 when a woman claimed a “giant hairy monster” broke her car’s antenna, jumped on top of her car and began jumping up and down.  And when her story began to permeate the town, other residents came forward with similarly horrifying accounts.

            Locals described a black, hairy man/ape-like creature around seven feet tall, with long hairy arms,  and a really horrible stench like skunk, that left 16- inch footprints.

            A farmer named Ned Sinclair told authorities, “That thing's so big it could easily hurt somebody. Who knows how many head of our livestock have gone missing because of it?''

            One woman told a harrowing tale of crouching in the floorboard as the creature attacked her car. And a man claimed the creature chased him through the woods screaming and howling like an ape.

            In the 1980’s, a woman claimed the creature chased her around the inside of her house and pounded on her door. A local plumber said his truck windshield had been smashed by the creature.  And in 1989, a church pastor claimed his car antenna and windshield had been destroyed. While during the same week, some teenagers reported seeing a “large manlike ape” running across a field.

            But the most harrowing story of all was told by a woman named Jenny Robertson. On April 26, 1976 she heard her four-year old son, Gary, screaming out in the yard where he had been playing. And when she ran outside to check on him , she could smell a terrible stench in the air she said reminded her of “dead rats.” And then she saw a huge hairy apelike figure running across her yard toward her house.

            She related the story to investigators at the time, “It was 7 or 8 feet tall, and seemed to be all covered with hair. It reached out its long, hairy arms toward Gary and came within a few inches of him.''

            But luckily, with a huge rush of adrenaline, Mrs. Robertson was able to scoop up the child and get him inside the house and lock the doors just in the nick of time.

            Not long afterward, large groups of heavily armed police officers and hunters descended onto her property determined to find and kill the beast. They combed the woods around the area but never could managed to track the creature down. Though they did claim they heard screams coming from the woods and had rocks thrown at them.

            Luckily, no one was ever hurt by the creature, and there have been no other encounters reported since 1993. It may have relocated or gone into hiding. Who knows? But the Flintville Monster still remains a mystery. ******DF
