Another Look At The Memorial Day Bigfoot Footage
I just wanted to take a little time and check out this famous footage from over 20 years ago. I was also curious to see if I could enhance the quality of the clip at all but as you can see, in the video, it is still blurry and grainy as ever.

After looking, I found that the footage was shot with a Hi-8mm video camera. Which is an analog tape that is similar to a VHS tape. In fact the Hi-8mm was brought out to compete with the S-VHS tape. But in reality the quality of the video was very similar and neither was really much better than the other, especially by today's standards.

In the video,we see this figure, filmed by vacationers, run across this open area. Many claim it was moving faster than a human could and others say it is a guy in a suit. The video is very inconclusive due to the clarity of the footage. My thing is the fact that IF this is a Bigfoot, how did it get caught out in the open? One would think it would have stayed hid or went into the trees on the left, instead of running out in the open.

In any case, here is the video

FBI: Peter Byrne Files

This is yet another historical post concerning Peter Byrne, Bigfoot and the FBI. For those who may not know, Peter Byrne is a long time bigfoot researcher who was born in Ireland. He served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, and went to Northern India to work on a tea plantation. Peter discovered his first yeti footprint in Nepal in 1948. In 1957 Byrne embarked on a three year expedition to hunt and track down the yeti; the expedition was funded by Texas oilman Tom Slick. In 1968 Byrne co-founded the International Wildlife Conservation Society, Inc. and serves as the executive director to this very day. He is often described as controversial, colorful, and passionately dedicated to the Bigfoot and Yeti search.

Mr. Byran as of 2019 and at 93 years old, is still in the hunt for Bigfoot. But what some may not know about is his interaction with the FBI.

What follows is some FBI file papers and some context. While for many this may not be new information, I feel I need to document and preserve this part of bigfoot history on our website. Also, I think the bigfoot community is growing and some may not know this information.

While posting the Bigfoot howls from Kentucky, I also did some research into the area for sighting reports.  The following report is the work of BFRO.net . The report is old but in the same general area as the unknown howls.

- Start Report -

YEAR: 1984
SEASON: Winter
MONTH: January
STATE: Kentucky
COUNTY: Breathitt County
LOCATION DETAILS: Turn off highway 15 toward Lost Creek about 8 miles.
NEAREST ROAD: not sure of the number it ran through lost creek
OBSERVED: As a small child i grew up in south eastern kentucky. Each winter the creek that ran next to our home would freeze over and we would skate on a area we had built a crude dam on. One morning after the creek had frozen back hard after partly thawing my sister and i went to play on the ice. When we arived we noticed that what apeared to be a small bare footed child had walked across the ice before it had fully frozen. The track had a definite form a heel, front pad and five toes .It had crossed a distance of about twenty feet in six steps went up a steep bank slipped down and went on up the bank. No other prints were ever seen and i have never heard of any other encounters in that area. The print was about eight inchs long and three or four inches wide.

ALSO NOTICED: in this area of kentucky there is a large amount of heavily wooded areas thousands of acres with little to no human contact with lots of reclaimed areas with fruit trees turnips and other folage and numerus abandoned mines some well over 100 years old the area of big branch is probably 1000 acres with only a few weekend atv riders ever on them which is heavily wooded and uninhabitited

OTHER WITNESSES: my sister just going to play on the ice

OTHER STORIES: My mother once told us a story of where she lived about 15 miles from there in the big branch area when she was a child and was staying with her grandmother when at night her grandmother would place a bucket with scraps from dinner on the back porch and she thought this was strange that she didnt feed them to the hogs they kept when she asked her grandmother why she did that she told her that was for her hairy man thinking it was only a story to keep the kids in the house at night they decided to stay up to see and she said they witnessed a man covered in brown hair come down from the hill and take the bucket sit down next to the well box only a few yards from the house and it ate the food placed the bucket back on the porch and disapeared back int othe woods
TIME AND CONDITIONS: early morning and very cold below freezing with a light snow
ENVIRONMENT: heavily wooded long hollow at that time only dirt road very few familys on that hollow high applacine moutains.

Follow-up investigation report:
After speaking with the witness, the following information can be added to the report.

The witness stated that they were perfectly preserved human-like footprints and added that the possibility of a human leaving them was extremely low because of sparse population and freezing weather. The prints had been made overnight when something walked through the slush ice that had formed the day before from a combination of thawing and precipitation. The toes were quite distinct and eliminated the possibility of shoe prints in the opinion of the witness. The estimated depth of the print in the ice was just over one inch.

I discussed the possibility of talking with his mother about the content of the report in the other stories section. The timing for speaking with her currently is not good because of a family issue, but I do hope to get that opportunity in a few months.

- End Report -

But wait....there's more! I recently talked with Charlie Raymond from Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organization and he was telling me about a report he was following up on a few days ago. Charlie's report was also in Breathitt County and it contain possible Bigfoot activity dating back several years. Plus, it also had very recent activity. The KBRO has a great database of Kentucky Bigfoot sightings.

So, it appears that Breathitt county has not only a history of Bigfoot activity, but it is still happening.

A big thanks to the BRFO for having a great database of sighting reports.

Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island Bigfoot Report

We have had a few Bigfoot reports submitted to TCC over the last little while from Canada. It has now brought forth another, as far as I know, Unreported until now sighting.

- Start Report -

 Name: Evan *****
Email Address: On file
State: Prince Edward island
County: Canada
Date of Sighting:
Time of Day: 10:30pm or so
Nearest Town: Middleton, Prince Edward island Canada
Length of Sighting: 30 seconds or so
How many Witnesses: just me
Any Photos/Videos: no but my brother found a track last spring that i will add (Tom - I will add photo once I get it.)

Describe sighting in detail:
I was walking my dog one summer night before I went to bed. I went to the edge of the potato field where there was a patch of woods and I was just about to turn around and head home. When my dog suddenly when down on her belly crawling and yelping, which I thought was weird because I've never seen her act like that before.
Then I heard a stick break and looked over towards the woods and saw something huge stand up and take 2 steps and gone into the woods. Needless to say, I never ran so fast in my life!
I then heard a whooping or a hooting noise coming from the patch of woods.

- End Report - 


Here is the photo along with a enhancements
Track - I have adjusted the color/contrast and sharpened the image
zoom of the track

Track up close

Thanks goes to Evan for sending in his report.

Some people question postings older sighting reports, but I feel it is important to document these sightings to help establish a possible pattern and history of Sasquatch. I also think in posting older sightings, it may help others to come forward and share what they have seen. Some people have seen Bigfoot and are very reluctant to tell what they saw and keep in to themselves for years. So, if we can help gets these folks to come forward by posting other peoples sightings, then I think we should do it.

Have a great day!

I put out a call for Bigfoot and UFO sightings and got in this report of a Bigfoot crossing Hwy 41 in California. Although the submitted report is somewhat brief, it still contains some good information and helps establish a history and base for sightings in the area.  

-Start Report-

Name: Rudy ******
Email Address: (On file )
State: saw it in cal.(California)
County: king's - Kern (Kern county area)
Date of Sighting: ? late summer of 1977
Time of Day: 1:00 am
Nearest Town: between Avenal and Paso Robles (Circles on Map)
Length of Sighting: maybe 10 sec.
How many Witnesses: 5
Any Photos/Videos: none
Describe sighting in detail:
I was coasting down hill on hwy.41 N., when I noticed the car coming up hill hit his brakes.
I thought deer, but to my surprise this huge dirty brown hairy critter was standing over center
I applied my brakes, he then turned his whole body to face my car. He stepped 2 times
and was out of site.
The creature was 8-9 ft tall.

-End Report-

If I'm correct and I think I am, Hwy 41 runs through Paso Robles up to Fresno. This sighting area would appear to have very little wooded area now but could have possible had more back in '77. There is also the possibility that the creature could have been moving into or looking for a better living area or maybe just heading to a water source. Its hard to say for sure.

Here is a 3D map of an area along Hwy 41 called White Canyon.

Hwy 41
If I find out more information about this sighting I will update the post.

A thanks to Rudy for sending in his sighting to us. If anyone else has had a sighting in this area, then feel free to contact us.

Cary, KY - Bell County
Again I know this is an old sighting but many have never read about it before. This is just adding more bigfoot sighting history to the area.

Where: Cary, KY (Bell County)
When: Late 1950's
Witnesses: 2
Creature: Standing
Two teenage boys were playing near coal mine when they noticed something standing right at the mouth of the mine.
It appeared to be a gray or white looking ape type animal but it was on two legs and it was standing with one arm hanging over a wooden cross timber, the cross timber would be about 8-9 feet tall. The two boys ran to tell parents but when they got back to the mines the creature was gone.

Rene Dahinden and his wife interviewed by Nyra Groves on March 21, 1957.
This interview sounds really scripted but still interesting from a history standpoint.
I really don't know where this came from original but I got it from my friend Candy. So please check out her YT site as well

Here is a article I did about Rene Dahinden a few months back.

Kingston, NH
A few days ago I got an interesting email from a lady named Barb. It seems she and her sister had seen a bigfoot several years ago in Kingston, New Hampshire. As most of you know we have gotten a lot of reports from there over the last year.

Here is the information that Barb provided about her sighting.

"A number of years ago my sister and I were walking down a main street in Kingston NH and we both saw a hairy creature wearing a tattered flannel shirt in a field of tall grass. There were no houses on that side of the highway and he first emerged from the woods into the field. The grass was too tall to see if he had pants on but he was covered in long fur. There was an object in his hand - it may have been a long stick. We stopped and stared...as soon as he despised we were watching, he turned around and went back to the woods. He was huge and had a long stride."

(Tom - Over the years I have heard of people seeing a bigfoot wearing clothes, if anyone else has heard of this please comment or email me.)

Here is more from Barb about her sighting.

A Race Of Giants?
Missionary E. Walker’s Letter...About Bigfoot?
Goliath from the Bible
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.


It’s always interesting to me to look at old accounts of ape-like creatures from North American history. And it’s especially interesting to see how the descriptions of the creatures parallel what researchers report about them today. The similarities are sometimes astounding.

Case in point, Reverend E. (Elkanah) Walker, missionary to the Spokane Indians in 1840. In his historic letter to Reverend David Green with the office of the Secretary of the American Board of Commissions for Foreign Missions, he explains some interesting stories he’s heard from these Indians. Early accounts of a strong smell, whistling, rocks being thrown at houses, and cases of kidnapping humans that resemble the Albert Ostman account. The following is the ending passage from that letter:

… "I suppose you will bear with me if I trouble you with a little of their superstition, which has recently come to my knowledge. They believe in the existence of a race of giants which inhabit a certain mountain off to the west of us. This mountain is covered with perpetual snow. They inhabit its top. They may be classed with Goldsmith’s nocturnal class and they cannot see in the daytime. They hunt and do all of their work in the night. They are men [s ]tealers. They come to the people’s lodges in the night when the people are asleep and take them, and put them under their skins and take them to their place of abode without even waking. When they wake in the morning they are wholly lost, not knowing in what direction their home is. The account that they give of these Giants will in some measure correspond with the Bible account of this race of beings. They say their track is about a foot and a half long. They will carry two or three beams upon their back at once. They frequently come in the night and steal their salmon from their nets and eat the’m raw. If the people are awake they always know when they are coming very near, by their strong smell, which is most intolerable. It is not uncommon for them to come in the night and give three whistles and then the stones will begin to hit their houses. The people believe that they are still troubled with their nocturnal visits."

We can only imagine what Reverend Green must have been thinking as he read this.

The letter was taken from the Holland Library of Washington University and the letter in its entirety can be seen here:  HERE
