Well over a year or so ago I was made aware of an upcoming British Bigfoot documentary. The film "Elusive" has now been released and I finally got the time to watch it. I wanted to share some thoughts and the film with everyone.

The film features witnesses/researcher testimony as well as some very interesting footage of what appears to be a Bigfoot.

I have had the pleasure to work with a few of the people featured in the film over the years. Some of the others are popular names you will recognize from Youtube.

Well, sometimes we get reports that are really hard to believe. I always try to give the witness the benefit of the doubt and assume they are being honest and that something really happened to them. But I also attempt to check the story out and verify it if possible.
With that said, I present to you a report I got in a few days ago. I will give some more information at the end of the post.

Here is the report.

Back in May of this year (2016) the British Bigfoot Research team recorded a very odd sound. The sound was recorded by group founders Paul and Adam Bird. The sound was recorded near a place they were staying at in Parkdean Park in Warmwell. Over they past few years, I have had the pleasure of working with the BBR and I was delighted when they contacted me concerning this recording. I gladly made an enhancement of the unknown sound.

Here is a very brief enhancement of that sound. Please see the other video below this video to get the complete story.

My short enhancement.

This interview, #23 in the series, is with Debbie Hatswell. Debbie is from the United Kingdom and I got to know her thanks to bigfoot. Debbie created an awesome map of reported "British Wildman" sightings. I invite you to check out her map by Clicking Here.

Here is out interview.

- Start Interview -

TM: How long have you been researching/studying bigfoot?
DCH: Since 1982 so 34yrs.

TM: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started?
DCH: Seeing a strange man/ape like creature as a young girl of 15. (Report Here)

TM: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a bigfoot?
DCH: No, the only "aggressive behavior" reported in the UK is usually a bluff charge or a large noisy display to divert you away, most reports state "he/it just walked away calmly.

TM: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?
DCH: For years now I have encountered ridicule and skeptical eye rolling, I just learned that I can't help what I saw and millions will disbelieve, but you can not unsee something and you just have to deal with it

TM: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?
DCH: On this one I am split, I would love to see land put aside for the forest folk, but the worry is the 1000's that would hunt them and disturb them if they were proven.

TM: What is your favorite time of year to research/study bigfoot, When do you have your most success?
DCH: For me it would be autumn, I have had success with qifting, usually in the autumn months from September to mid December, strangely a lot of the UK sightings happen around this time also, are they on the move more at this time of year? more food around or moving to winter grounds.

TM: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?
DCH: Yes, Jas Smiths account from sevenoaks: Found Here.

TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying bigfoot?
DCH: Honestly I would probably still be considered the women who sees monsters, I would still be looking through old newspaper reports and forums looking for other witnesses, if i hadn't seen him I would probably just been a normal housewife and mum, the validating moment for me (apart from the other 370 accounts) was when a lady called Brenda came forward to you Thomas and explained she had seen "him" too, just two years later. (That report can be found by Clicking Here. )

- End Interview -

A big thanks to Debbie for taking part in the interview. It is fascinating to read researchers thoughts about bigfoot and to see what got them interested in the subjects. Of course, almost all of us face skeptics and ridicule but we come to understand that that is just part of the enigma of Bigfoot. I would assume, that most people, do not even realize that there is a significant number of British Wildman, aka Bigfoot, sightings from the United Kingdom, but there are a lot. Reports of similar behavior and appearance, I think that is awesome.



Thanks

Does this photo show a gorilla type creature?

I got the follow report, along with the above photo submitted to me on April 1st. The photo was sent later that day. Please read after the report to see our conclusion about the photo.

- Start Report -

Name: Karla
Email Address: on file
State: UK
County: Manchester
Date of Sighting:
Time of Day:
Nearest Town: Salford
Length of Sighting:
How many Witnesses:
Any Photos/Videos: yes
Describe sighting in detail: 
Dear whom it may concern. I was recently clearing out a cupboard of my mother in law and it contained lots of old pictures and stuff. Well we came across an odd picture in an envelope with just the world gorilla written on it.
We looked at the picture and it is old and has the words oakwood park 1937 written on it in black ink. It is an old picture and shows a park local to our area called Oakwood in Manchester. Its hard to see but there is an animal on it that looks like an ape.
Do you think this could have escaped? I know you lot are into these weird animals and bigfoots so thought you may be interested in seeing this picture. It is very odd.

- End Report -

When I had initially gotten the report (without the photo) it sounded as if it had some real potential.
I ask if they could send me a copy of the photo via email or message and they quickly did.

Once I got the photo and looked at it I felt as if the photo itself was a fake and this report was nothing more that an attempt at an Aprils Fools joke.

But giving the benefit of the doubt I took the photo and conducted some test on it. I did not stop there as I also let team member Greg Champy have a go at it.    

Greg pointed out how the writing looked more like a font instead of actual ink writing. This was also what I thought but I did not tell Greg, as I wanted him to come to his on conclusion.

Here is a zoom on the writing.
Greg has this to say:
"From the bottom of the first a...a line drawn beneath the second at the same intersection creates a font baseline. The k's are exactly alike and overhang the baseline exactly the same."

Greg went on to say: " The writing has to be a font because the a, k, and o are exactly the same. Nobody writes that precisely."

Myself and Greg also wondered if the picture itself could be a still frame from some old movie.

In the end we both reached the same conclusion that this photo was a fake and possibly some type of photoshop.  As for the picture looking old, there are several filters that can be applied to photos to make them look old.

In my opinion, I think this report was most likely submitted in an attempt to get me to post what amounts to an Aprils Fools joke. I guess they thought I would just run with it. Then again maybe the report is true but the photo they found was some sort of joke or the zoo was in town that day.

Sadly for us in the cryptozoology field we face this type of thing almost on a daily basis. Its even worse on April 1st. 

I'm not trying to be rude towards Karla, as she could be telling her part honestly and just be looking for answers, but the photo is most likely a forgery and that just raises a red flag.

Thanks

Sherwood Forest in the United Kingdom
As you may know the possibility of  Bigfoot being in the United Kingdom has gained a lot more attention over the last year. The UK does have some large forest area and there are a great number of reported sightings of Bigfoot. It is well worthy of research.

Today, I want to share with you a recent submitted research report from British Bigfoot Researchers Adam and Paul Bird. This post will include a video and their description of what was heard. Adam and Paul, along with a few others, have been doing some fantastic work and are really helping bring attention to the British Bigfoot phenomenon.

- Start Report -

Name: Adam and Paul Bird
Email Address: britishbigfootresearch@yahoo.co.uk
State: UK
County: Nottinghamshire
Date of Sighting: March 1, 2015
Time of Day: Early afternoon
Nearest Town: Nottingham
Length of Sighting: no sighting, audio only
How many Witnesses: Two
Any Photos/Videos: Yes -



Describe sighting in detail:

Hi Thomas. These are video highlights of mine and Paul Bird's day visit to Sherwood Forest, where we conducted a British Bigfoot investigation on March 1st 2015. We captured a few strange vocalizations during our time there. They sounded like high-pitched screeches, almost like a Hyena's laugh.
We are not claiming they come from a Woodwose, just that they are unexplained. We can't think of any known animal that this could be.
We welcome your opinion Thomas. Thanks.
If anyone would like to share their sightings of the UK Bigfoot, please feel free to Email us at britishbigfootresearch@yahoo.co.uk

- End Report -
 
First, let me say thanks to Adam and Paul for sharing their research with me and everyone. Now, as for the odd sounds recorded in the video. It is really hard to say for sure just what it is, but it could be a bird. I'm not for sure what all kinds of birds are in the UK but I know some birds make weird sounds. In any case it is an interesting catch and I for one appreciate the efforts of Adam and Paul.

Over the last few months I have worked with Adam and Paul Bird and Debbie Hatswell on sharing and documenting Bigfoot sightings and research in the United Kingdom. I applaud their efforts at shining a light on a Bigfoot mystery that expands the globe.  I wish the continued success and look forward to sharing their research efforts.

Thanks

Almost everyone has heard and knows about Bigfoot sightings in the United States. But there is also a very large number of reported sightings in the United Kingdom and in Ireland. I have featured a few reports from the UK.

I have several contacts and friends in the UK and one of them has created a sightings map very much like the one I have created for our site.

The British Wildman Sightings map was created by Debbie Hatswell and it is a map of sightings she has collected. You can check it out by clicking this link - http://tinyurl.com/oerjsjj

Debbie has done a great job collecting and logging these reports. 

I would also encourage you to check out British Bigfoot Research on Facebook. It is ran by some good folks including Adam Baird and Debbie Hatswell, just to name a few.

What is interesting about the sightings from the UK and the US is that there seems to be a lot of similarities in the sighting reports.

We (TCC) still want to document reports from the UK, but if you don't file your report with us, then please file it with the British Bigfoot Research Group.


Thanks
~Tom~

Boggart Hole Clough
Another report from the United Kingdom. Here in America it is commonly reported that Bigfoot will throw rocks at people. Everything from small pebbles to large basketball sized stones. So, what was throwing the rocks at Boggart Hole Clough?


- Start Report -

Name: James *********
Email Address: on file
State: Lancashire
County: Lancashire
Date of Sighting: 2003
Time of Day: Evening - 9PM
Nearest Town: Manchester
Length of Sighting: 5 Minutes
How many Witnesses: 3
Any Photos/Videos: No
Describe sighting in detail:
Boggart's Hole Clough 2003 Stones Thrown
I was living in a area in Manchester called Blackley. Me and my family would often go for walks embracing the beautiful woodlands and surroundings.

Back in 2003 we decided to go for an evening walk in the nearby area of Boggart Hole Clough,
an area with an amazing size to it, wildlife,a pond and even streams, but that was only a part of it.

We arrived at the location at around 9PM, myself, my mum and an ex partner of hers.
As we started to walk along the path, we could hear birds and the common sounds you would expect.
But as we made another step, we had stopped dead in our tracks. The sudden feeling of being watched but due to the darkness in Boggart Hole Clough we couldn't see much, apart from the trees that were pretty much in front of us.

Next thing we knew a small stone landed centimeters in front of us. As my mum's ex began to proceed to walk towards the pathway, another stone was thrown, and then a third.
During this time we felt consistently being watched by somebody or something. It was by the third we knew it was time to go, we left the area.

- End Report -

While, there was not visual sighting of what was throwing the stones, it reminds me of the countless reports here in America which the person reports feeling uneasy or of being watched. Then having rocks threw at them or in some cases hearing grunts and howls.

I think it is safe to assume that Bigfoot behavior is basically the same the world over. You also have to think, that people have been reporting seeing Bigfoot for hundreds of years now all over most parts of the world. They have described the creature to look basically the same no matter where the sighting took place. They describe the same behavioral patterns. You would think that even the toughest skeptic would have to at least consider the possibility. 

Thanks to James for the report!

Thanks
~Tom~

Bigfoot activity in Yellowham hill
Yellowham Hill - Bigfoot activity!

So as you know, we have been featuring a few Bigfoot reports from the United Kingdom. Today we have another one send to us by Adam and Paul Bird. There is an enhanced video after the report that features the Howls recorded by Adam and Paul and also some pictures of tree breaks and stick formation from the same area. Please check out their research group - British Bigfoot Research


- Start Report -

Name: Adam Bird & Paul Bird
Email Address: On file
State: Puddletown Forest (Yellowham Hill)
County: Dorset, United Kingdom
Date of Sighting: 6/25/2014 - 6/27/2014
Time of Day: About 8:00pm
Nearest Town: Puddletown
Length of Sighting: 20 minutes
How many Witnesses: Two
Any Photos/Videos: Yes (Enhance video with photos from area below)
Describe sighting in detail:
Myself and my dad, Paul went out to investigate Yellowham Hill / Puddletown Forest, in Dorset, which is the scene of many historical accounts of women being kidnapped by Wildmen.
We arrived at the location around 7pm. We went to an isolated part of the forest and tried wood knocks. These didn't arouse any response so we tried whoops. Still, we got no results.
At around 8pm we decided to try something new. We tried doing hand claps. Right away we started getting knocking responses. We tried doing some whoops and we had responses. Something whooped back at us three times.
We also found possible prints and tree/stick structures that day. It then went silent and we left the location. We returned two days later and go two knock responses and a whoop once again.
Adam and Paul Bird

Enhanced Video with Photos of the area:


(Sorry for the spelling mistakes in the video I was trying to hurry and have several other things going on at the time.)

- End Report -


Thanks goes to Adam for allowing us to attempt to enhance the howls he and his dad recorded. From the reports that I have read and posted, it seems the UK version of Bigfoot has about the same behavior as his American counterpart. That in itself is interesting.

Thanks to all those who have sent in reports to us. Just to let you know we have a few more lined up over the next few days. Time permitting.


Thanks
~Tom~
