Bigfoot up close?

This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.

Here is another video of what is claimed to be a Bigfoot up close. The uploader goes by the name  Robert Cline. Here is what the description says about the encounter:

"On August 2nd, 2014 I spotted the Sasquatch / Skunk Ape in Oleta River State Park.

It was raining all afternoon and there was nobody in the park. I was riding along one of the smaller paths in the "Mountain Bike" region of Oleta. I was about 30 minutes into my ride when I heard some branches breaking along a "nature trail". I figured it was a small animal and I would go take a peek. I got off my bicycle and walked along the trail with my camera out and ready to capture the animal....

The Sasquatch seemed preoccupied with scavenging around and did not notice me. He seemed a little off, perhaps even fevered. The whole episode lasted for ten seconds, and changed my life.

The story sounds pretty good but the video to any normal person would seem like an obvious hoax using a common Bigfoot suit.
Here is the video.

Now, you would think that most people could see that this is a common Bigfoot suit sold in many locations and on the internet. Here is a picture of the suit.

Nothing in the Bigfoot World ever seems to be cut and dry. There seems to always be someone who will support the wildest of claims and the crappiest video. This video is no different.

As I was looking down at the comments, there were a few that called it out quickly as a hoax but there are some who believe it could be real.  Here is some screen shots of the comments I find most amusing.


See, this is the type of craziness we have to put up with. People who have seen a real Bigfoot, have found real evidence of the creature, we have to stomach stuff like this and try to remain tolerable.

What causes all of this? I would guess there are a few factors that causes the massive flooding of fake videos and such. The allure of getting on TV has to be a factor, I imagine, and the hopes of getting the "Finding Bigfoot" crew to come to your area. Another factor could the the idea of making money off of youtube views but that don't appear to be the case in this instants as I don't recall any ads being ran.  Maybe it's just a "look at me" type of thing.

What can we do? Well, we can try to be somewhat tolerable and help the ones we can and just let the rest wonder off.

As most of you know, this type of fake video is not going anywhere soon. There will be more and more as the popularity of Bigfoot grows.

Oh well, I guess the ones that know better can just try and laugh about it all, which is hard to do sometimes.

Have a great day.

  1. It's funny that you have a lot of the same people pushing these things as being genuine in many YouTube video comments. In some cases they make videos themselves. It's almost as if they want to believe so bad that don't think clearly (and possibly drum up more interest in their own videos).

  2. I myself frequently go to Oleta River State Park (ORSP) and I believe this story to be a complete hoax. First, ORSP (Oleta River State Park) is an urban park, being surrounded on all sides by the bustling city of Miami, and it's total area is less than a square mile. It does not have a large roaming area for large animals, such as Bigfoot is "known" to have a very large territory. It would be impossible for him to wander into the park, because he would have to traverse Miami. And the park is too small for him to live in. Second, ORSP is very busy. The bike trails are everywhere, very densely across the park. There is no hidden place anywhere for a secretive creature like Bigfoot to keep himself out-of-sight during the day when the cyclers are about. Third, I myself got lost on a bike trail in ORSP, walked around there lost for 2 -3 hours in the dark. Couldn't find my way anywhere in those convoluted trails. After circling around for a couple hours and ending up where I started, I finally found my way home by swimming in a canal. All during this time, I never saw any large animals--no deer, nothing. Think I would have come across Bigfoot that night if he lived there.
    This begs the issue, could Bigfoot SWIM into the park? Well, if he had, he would have been wet. But that is not likely considering the boat, kayak, paddleboard, and canoe traffic there during the day.
    Finally, Bigfoot is very shaggy and not aclimmated for Florida weather. The believable sightings are all in cold places.

    Nice try, biker. We ain't that dumb.
