Is this a Bigfoot Leg Bone? (UPDATE)

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:

Now, when this was first being circulated around I questioned it. Of course, I was met with opposition by people who believed it to be the bones of a bigfoot.

Come to find out this image and bones were from the TV show Alaska State Troopers, a show I had only caught bits and pieces of and never watched. I do not know which season or episode these "mystery" bones were featured in.

Anyways, I was thinking, even before knowing where the bones were found, that the bones could be from a grizzly bear. Of course, I was once again met with opposition at the idea of it not being bigfoot bones.

So, I went on a little search to see what kind of grizzly bear population was in Alaska. I was surprised at the number.

It is estimated that there is 55,000 grizzly bears in North America of which 53,500 live in Alaska. So, in my opinion the bones featured and being shopped around as bigfoot bones, are probably nothing more than grizzly bear bones.

I also search grizzly bear bone images and the back leg bone is very similar, if not an exact match, to the leg bone featured in the picture.

Until I watch the episode, if I knew which one it was, or more of the story behind the bones are revealed, I will assume them to be nothing more that grizzly bear bones and wishful thinking by some bigfoot enthusiast.

If you know the episode this leg bone was featured in, drop a message in the comments.


I was able to find out more about the bones and the episode. Here is the new information:
It is for sure from an Episode of "Alaskan State Trooper" a Nat Geo show. The episode aired Aug 2014 it was titled "Too drunk to drive" (episode 7) Mid way in the episode they follow a trooper Eric Olsen, Kodiak Island Post.

Going to investigate a presumed drowning victim, found by fishermen along the shoreline In Seal Bay, Kodiak Island .The trooper examines the remains, a leg, with foot attached and still having some flesh. He says, “they look human”, so takes it to the island museum, Aleutian Museum, to see the archeologist to determine the sex of the victim so he can start a crime scene investigation.

The scientist also thinks it is human, UNTIL he holds it up to his own leg. He then says, "This must have been a jolly green giant." The segment ends there and they never tell you who or what it was.

The bones did look very human like, just Very big. So my opinion has changed somewhat. It could of course be a very large man, but there is the real possibility that it might have been a Sasquatch. While I can't 100 percent rule out a grizzly bear, I will say it is very unlikely it was a grizzly bear.
Seeing as there was no follow up to the bones, it even add more mystery to them.

Now, through the magic of the internet, I can let you watch the episode. The part about the bones is around the 29 minute mark.
Here it is.

What do you think about the bones?
