Here is another mysterious picture that when I started looking at it, I had no background information. This image comes from the now shutdown website known as Topix forums. Topix main website is still up but the forum section has now been closed down. The forum ran for many years and many people used it to expose crime, spread rumors and to tell lies on people in their community. It was largely unmonitored and you could post under any screen name without signing up.

But there were also some legitimate forums on there that were more focused on real news and other topics. The forum this image comes from was a photo album of unexplained creatures from Berea Kentucky.
I did not know who took the picture or the exact area it was taken. I had absolutely no back story to it. But with that said, I still want to zoom in on the figure to see if we can get any more detail.

Here is a zoom in of the figure. All I did was zoom in and sharpen the image. Still not very much detail to be seen.

Well, as I stated I didn't know anything about this image at first. I continued to research and found where it comes from. It is from a video take at or near Indian Fort Theater in Berea Kentucky on September 16th, 2008.  I personally think the video and image is fake but reading the comment from the video, it also has a lot of supporters. Here is the video and more information after it.

!! Language Warning !!

After digging a little deeper I discover that in fact the video was a hoax. On the person's YouTube channel there is another video, taken in what looks like the same area, of a "Bigfoot" scaring some local college students. Things like this is why we must research more to find out the truth about a video or picture. What is amazing is how people, including some researchers, supported the original video as being a real Bigfoot. Here is the video that shows this was a hoax. This video and another were actually released one month before the "Bigfoot at Indian Fort Theater" video.

As the above video has been removed, I found where someone else had part of it. Here is is.

and here is a still shot of the same area and of the fake bigfoot scaring people.

Even though this picture and video are fake, there are numerous sightings of Bigfoot in and around the Berea area. I have taken in many reports from that area and know several trusted researchers who have researched in that area. You can access our reports from this area by visiting our sighting map found by clicking HERE.

The Indian Fort Theater area and the Pinnacles in general are known hotspots for Bigfoot activity in Berea.
