Tim Fasano: Photo of sleeping Bigfoot released by Erickson Project is just a puppy dog

Image
The Florida Skunk Ape hunter Tim Fasano is on a rampage this week. First, he accuses Todd Standing and Matt Moneymaker of being hoaxers (that's if Matt is shown to be too nice to Todd and decides to let him off the hook). Now, he thinks the Erickson Project photo released earlier this month is not a Sasquatch at all. He says the creature in the photo shows "an animal that's appears to be no bigger then a medium to small dog!"

"The tree limbs in the foreground are frail and thin meaning the shooter was VERY close... Bigfoot weights about 50 lbs! Get real. This is as bad as bad gets. Adrian Erickson must of gone to the local dog park for this photo. How can you people not see this?" said Fasano.

This is the original frame grab that was featured in the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows News online, published on August 17, 2011. Previous photos of the sleeping sasquatch were just hard copy reproductions. This one found in the digital version of the newspaper is probably the best one you'll get to see until Adrian Erickson decides to show us the money shot.

New Footage: Utah Bigfoot caught on tape by target shooters

Image
Update: Click here to watch the breakdown video by The Crypto Hunters.

This YouTube video was sent to us an hour ago from a reader name Paul who wanted to share this with us. What's interesting about this footage is how quiet these guys were when filming the giant hairy creature as it walks away. The friends were probably spooked and wasn't sure what they were filming at the time. It's obvious to us the creature is bipedal, and it definitely couldn't have been a bear.

How popular is Todd Standing?

Image
Todd Standing is becoming Mr. Popular all of a sudden. In an interview with the CALGARY HERALD, Todd says Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot is not the only television show to express interest in him. Two months ago he spoke with the National Geographic Channel, for a program that has yet to air, and he’s also sat down with the producers of the program Call Out Search and Rescue, which airs on such channels as Sun TV and Access.

Standing also says he’s been in talks with Les Stroud, host of the television series Survivorman and Beyond Survival, seen on OLN.

No matter what his critics have said about him, it seems people are buying his stories after all. Todd claims to know where these Bigfoots live (in a secret valley, which the natives called Sylvanic), and said he's been attack by a sasquatch before. In one terrifying encounter he reports that a male charged at him. “He was crashing an 80 pound boulder into the mountain as he approached me ... until I submitted to him,” Standi…

Tim Fasano tells Matt Moneymaker not to go to Sylvanic, claims the Todd Standing Bigfoot photo is fake

Image
Tim Fasano, our favorite Bigfoot hunter from Florida just posted an attack piece today on the Sylvanic episode of Finding Bigfoot before any filming even started. Fasano tells Matt to stay away from Todd Standing at all cost. "Matt Moneymaker may be charming and all that but Standing is a known hoaxer. By associating with him, and having him on your show, you are now a hoaxer as well. There is no other conclusion that can be drawn," said Fasano.

20 million-year-old ape skull discovered in Uganda

Image
Ugandan and French scientists have discovered a fossil of a skull of a tree-climbing ape from about 20 million years ago in Uganda's Karamoja region, the team said.

The scientists discovered the remains on July 18 while looking for fossils in the remnants of an extinct volcano in Karamoja, a semi-arid region in Uganda's northeastern corner.

"This is the first time that the complete skull of an ape of this age has been found. It is a highly important fossil," Martin Pickford, a paleontologist from the College de France in Paris, told a news conference.

Pickford said preliminary studies of the fossil showed that the tree-climbing herbivore, roughly 10-years-old when it died, had a head the size of a chimpanzee's but a brain the size of a baboon's, a bigger ape.

Bridgette Senut, a professor at the Musee National d'Histoire Naturelle, said that the remains would be taken to Paris to be x-rayed and documented before being returned to Uganda.

Tim Fasano: Hurricane Irene Disrupts Bigfoot Operations

Tim's last video before the hurricane
If you're a fan of Tim Fasano and his skunk ape videos, then we are sorry to inform you that he will not have any new videos for this week. It looks like the large amount of rain and wind from Hurricane Irene has put a stop to the operation this weekend. This means that Tim will have to wait for the weather to dry up a bit before he goes back into the field again.

Latest update from Fasano posted on Sunday, August 28:

Two nurses from Elizabthtown preparing for trip to the Uwharrie National Forest near Asheboro to search for Bigfoot

Looking for Bigfoot: Two local nurses are planning quite an adventure
by Erin Smith, esmith@bladenjournal.com

ELIZABETHTOWN — Two enterprising Bladen County women have devised a plan to search for Bigfoot, a.k.a. Sasquatch.

Linda Durden and her friend, co-worker Janette Skinner plan to spend some time in September in the Uwharrie National Forest near Asheboro on a mission to gather concrete proof Bigfoot exists.

Why Uwharrie? According to Skinner, Animal Planet did a special in February called Finding Bigfoot. The special mentioned sightings in the Uwharrie National Forest, said Skinner.

“She’s always talked about it and watched the movies,” said Skinner of her friend Durden. “We never heard about it (the sightings in North Carolina).”

Durden and Skinner have been fishing and camping in the Uwharrie forest for several years. They both say they were not aware of the Bigfoot sightings nor have then seen or heard anything out of the ordinary.

When asked if they truly believe the stories,…

Pictures of the Day: Comparing Human and Gorilla’s Skeleton

Image
Notice the huge "dents" on either side of the Gorilla's skull behind the eyes. There are massive jaw muscles that are located here, giving the gorilla an immensely strong bite. Some scientists believe the evolution of these jaw muscles has limited the size that the cranial cavity could grow to, thus limiting the gorilla's ability to evolve a human like intelligence.

The gigantic-sized of the chimpanzee, discovered in the deep in the Congolose jungle. They are called “BILI”. According to the local people, the species is bigger, stronger, and fiercer than the normal chimpanzee. Why? This type of gigantic-sized chimpanzee catch fish, kill lions, and even howl at the moon. WOW! That is scary. Some people believe that BILI is a hybrid of gorilla and chimpanzee.

Andre the Giant as Bigfoot

The Six Million Dollar Man The Secret Of Bigfoot
The star of The Big Valley and The Six Million Dollar Man shared fond memories at 17th annual Fan Expo in Toronto. On August 27, 2011, Lee Majors entertained devoted fans in a half-hour question-and-answer session at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Lee Majors said that probably the most popular Six Million Dollar Man episode with fans is Steve's meeting with Bigfoot, the seven-foot robot alien whose arm gets ripped off by our bionic hero during their scrap.

Majors had nothing but praise for Bigfoot's portrayer - wrestler Andre the Giant.

Majors said Andre would be sitting waiting in the hot sun in his hairy Bigfoot costume, guzzle six beers at once, crush the cans, get up and do a scene without even being fazed.

"It was different. And it was a lot of fun," Majors said.

He said he was somewhat concerned when the scene called for Andre to take a flying leap onto him.

"He was such a wonderful wrestler and his at…

Finding Bigfoot: Minnesota Town Hall Meeting in Carlton County drew largest crowd ever, Ranae Holland now hotter than Angelina Jolie

Image
Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot show just wrapped up their town hall interview session in Minnesota this week. A few weeks ago, the cast was in Minnesota near the St. Croix river area possibly investigating the recent Bigfoot sighting where a farmer and his wife caught a Sasquatch on tape.

According to Duluth News Tribune, the cast and crew all agreed that the town hall meeting in Carlton County, Minnesota drew the largest crowd they've seen yet for the program’s signature meeting.

Generally, the cast use town hall meetings as a platform to hear as many stories as people want to tell before they head out to do more field research in order to track down the elusive creature.

Utah Bigfoot: Huntsville Interviews

Utah Bigfoot - Huntsville Interviews from Michael Slade on Vimeo.

Watch this awesome interview piece by Michael Slade from Utah Bigfoot Blog. It's about two women from Huntsville, Utah relating experiences they had with the "elusive one" known as Bigfoot or Sasquatch.

From MICHAEL SLADE:
Last night I went up to Huntsville, Utah with Dave Carver and a bunch of other folks to listen to two women relate some experiences they have had. I shot over 90 minutes of video, but I had to distill it down into something that would 'tease' the viewer. I will go and make photographs at the locations these two women have described.

Brand new video just posted today showing an auburn color Sasquatch crossing the road near Grizzly Gulch in Montana.  The driver, while showing-off the new FLIR night vision system on his “Ultimate Tow Rig” picked up a signature showing something on the side of the road.  “…What’s that on the right side dude?” said the driver.  This was when the Bigfoot is caught on tape striding across the road on multiple cameras. The person in the back of the tow truck, while attempting to hop off the moving vehicle managed to catch a few seconds of the creature on video as it strides across the road and made its way into the trees.

Mormon folk tales regarding Cain / Bigfoot

Image
Mormons believe in a lot of things, and according to historical references, they also believe in Bigfoot. In the 1920s, missionaries in Mexico encountered a large, dark, hairy creature who said he was Cain. Later in the 20th century, missionaries in Georgia were attacked by “a huge black negro,” who chased them away. They were told by their mission president it was Cain.

In every version of the Bible, Cain is a crop farmer and his younger brother Abel is a shepherd. Cain is portrayed as sinful, committing the first murder by killing his brother, after God has rejected his offerings of produce but accepted the animal sacrifices brought by Abel. Accordingly, Abel was the first human to ever die. Cain is mentioned as Adam and Eve's first child; thus, Cain, according to Scripture, was the first human ever born.

Why humans and other primates are freaked out by The Polar Express movie

The Uncanny Valley – Scary Dental Training Robot
Monkeys are freaked out by almost-but-not-quite-real depictions of themselves. That tendency is well documented in humans, but has never before been seen in another species. This behavior is called the "uncanny valley" hypothesis.

The “uncanny valley” was identified in 1970 by Japanese roboticist Masahito Mori, who noticed that people presented with likenesses of increasing realism respond with increasing empathy, right up to the point where the likenesses are almost real. At that point, people are repulsed. The sudden dip in graphs describing their response gave the phenomenon its name.

Erickson-Lindsay Project: More on Sierra kills, Robert's take on Sleeping Bigfoot photo, thinks Dr. Melba Ketchum is hot

Image
Here's another Erickson Project update from Robert Lindsay just posted an hour ago.

Robert chimes in on the Sleeping Bigfoot photo recently released by Adrian Erickson. He thinks it's the real deal. Robert said at the end of the 4-5 minute video, the Bigfoot does wake up for some reason, possibly because she realized that she was being photographed.

It also looks like Robert Lindsay might be a little "friendlier" to Dr. Ketchum from now on. In the caption underneath Dr. Ketchum's new Facebook photo, to put it nicely, Robert wrote: "A new photo of Melba Ketchum, looking very beautiful indeed."

Turkey hunter afraid to go back after making eye contact with Bigfoot near Shimek State Forest

Image
This report was recently posted on the BFRO's website on Thursday, April 14, 2011. A turkey hunter recounted his experience as though it were yesterday.

The hunter was well hidden behind a brush pile with only his head showing when he heard the footsteps of this creature a full 2 to 3 minutes before seeing what it was. "The sound of it walking was rhythmic," said the hunter. While watching the creature walk 'gracefully' through the valley it would occasionally stop next to a tree and touch the leaves of the tree, as though examining it. It did this two or three times.

8.8 million species exist on Earth, Sasquai and 6.9 million others yet to be discovered

Image
For centuries scientists have pondered a central question: How many species exist on Earth? Now, a group of researchers has offered an answer: ~8.8 million. This latest number is billed as the most accurate yet, but only a tiny proportion is known to science.

Here's an article by the AP:

FB/FB: Bigfoot originally migrated from North America to Asia, not the other way around

FB/FB Part II: discussion on Smart Ape Theory
Facebook Find Bigfoot, the group known for breaking down blurry Bigfoot videos just released part 2 of their discussion on Smart Ape Theory.

The discussion ranges from the Smart Ape Theory, to the Aquatic Ape Theory and beyond.

The aquatic ape theory or AAT is the idea that humans went through a semi-aquatic stage in their evolutionary history. According to some scientists, AAT can help explain why humans lost their body hair or why we feel a strong affinity for water and expensive oceanfront property.

At the end of the discussion, they touched on the possibility that Bigfoot might have migrated from North American through Asia. This is contrary to the belief that these great apes (if you believe they're apes) migrated from Asia across the Bering land bridge along with humans and many other species.

Bigfoot locked on thermal, BFRO’s July 2011 Bluff Creek area expedition notes

Image
Kicking yourself because you weren't invited to the BFRO Expedition at Bluff Creek last month? If you're not kicking yourself, then you should because of what the team experienced that weekend.

On the nights before their big encounter, the expedition team took notes of broken tree branches and animal sounds in the area.

On Friday, the night before the sighting, the team reported hearing one possible “whoop” return call.
About an hour into their visit three of the participants reported heading what they describe as “female voices” coming from the about 40-50 feet below them in the scrub. They were described as being “overtly female, murmuring in nature, and conversational”. The voices lasted approximately 45 seconds and were never heard again. What they saw on Saturday  night at the Bluff Creek area was something to write home about. For at least 15 minutes, the expedition team using a thermal imager, locked onto a creature they claimed to be a Sasquatch. The expedition leader…

Wildlife Biologist John Bindernagel feels proof of Bigfoot is nigh, won't go down without a fight

Image
Canada's online newspaper The Globe and Mail recently published an article about Dr. John Bindernagel and his quest to spark scientific debate about Sasquatch.

Bindernagel is a wildlife biologist with a PhD who has become a world-renowned expert on the elusive Sasquatch. He has more than 40 years of Sasquatch experience. He says he's actually seen one.

Dr. Bindernagel is turning 70 this fall and he believes we are at the brink of a major scientific discovery. Bindernagel hopes the DNA research data coming out this year (or next year) will provide the hard scientific evidence that scientists are looking for. He hopes the results will encourage scientists to "scrutinize the evidence" instead of dismissing the evidence as “tabloid material” not worthy of discussion.

A Bigfoot Capture in 19th Century Florida??! - Story of the Ocheesee Pond "Wild Man"

Image
This story about a Florida Bigfoot that captured in 19th Century was originally posted on a blog by Florida author and historian Dale Cox on August 22, 2011.

One of the most overlooked yet potentially most important Bigfoot related stories in American history took place in 1884 at Ocheesee Pond, a vast swamp in Jackson County, Florida.

The story of the Ocheesee Pond Wild Man, a strange hair-covered creature captured by a local search party in August of 1884 is one of the most bizarre in the long history of American sightings of the monster that most today call Bigfoot, Sasquatch of - in Florida - the Skunk Ape.

Ocheesee Pond is a vast wetland in the southeast corner of Jackson County. Measuring more than 3 miles long and nearly that distance wide, the shallow pond fills a huge basin just south of the towns of Grand Ridge and Sneads and about an hour west of Tallahassee. Although there is some open water near its southern end, for the most part Ocheesee is a vast cypress swamp. It is no…

Finding Bigfoot doing an episode on Sylvanic, Todd Standing's eyes start to twinkle

Finding Bigfoot is coming to do an Episode on sylvanic. 1 hour ago
Interesting tidbit from Todd Standings, a self proclaimed Bigfoot skeptic and operator of Sylvanic.com, the group that's offering a 2 Million dollar reward "to anyone that discovers a body that has expired due to natural causes."

Todd Standing is a filmmaker and bigfoot researcher from Western Canada. He claims to have had at least three encounters with bigfoot and to be in possession of two videos of these creatures. In 2007 he got worldwide media attention for his submission to get bigfoot protected in Canada.

Just about an hour ago, Todd posted on Twitter that Animal Planet and the Finding Bigfoot crew are going to do an episode on Sylvanic. Todd has been saying for years that he knows of a secret valley which lies somewhere in the border of the United States and Canada called “Sylvanic”, a name given by the “locals”. In this valley, Mr. Standin…

Missouri deer hunter encounters suspicious activity near deer trail

A deer hunter from Missouri is not sure what to think of the "road block" or the strange arches found near his deer stands. Some Bigfoot researchers believe arches made by Bigfoot serve as way-points, or directional/territorial markers. Other researchers have pointed out that most odd arched-branch structures in the woods are probably not made by Bigfoot.

The hunter and his kids also discovered "weird" structures that resembled a nest near the road block.

While looking around the property, they heard "two whistles" which prompted the kids to ask "Who was that?". In a notable percentage of sightings reports, "whistles" are often heard around the time of a sighting, and then subsequently associated with it. According to some researchers, Sasquatch is adept at utilizing a large variety of other bird sounds. "It is fairly well documented, and it is not uncommon to hear a witness say he/she heard the sounds of 'day' birds at…

Bigfoot Fun Fact: Dermal Ridges

Many of the plaster casts of Bigfoot have been looked at by professionals and are said to contain dermal ridges. Dermal ridges are are similar to fingerprints, and all known primates have them. They are also found only on primates. Some argue that these dermal ridges can be easily faked. In 2005, Matt Crowley reported that under certain conditions plaster casts will form to resemble having dermal ridges.

Exclusive: Matt Moneymaker's rebuttal to a Bigfoot skeptic's rant

Image
When I stumbled upon a question posted on Yahoo Answers asking about whether or not humans descended from Bigfoot, a skeptic who calls himself Lord Bearclaw of Gryphon Woods used the opportunity to write an essay against the existence of a large bipedal human-like ape roaming the Pacific Northwest. The skeptic made some interesting points, and claims it's "flat-out impossible" to maintain a viable population due to nutritional requirements these creatures would need to survive.

We figured the claims made by the skeptic needs a fair rebuttal, so I contacted Matt Moneymaker. Moneymaker is president of the BFRO or the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization. He's also a frequent visitor of Bigfoot Evidence. We decided to shoot the skeptic’s rant to Moneymaker and ask if he can write a comment refuting each paragraph. We would like to thank Matt Moneymaker for taking the time to write us back.

Well, What Do You Know: Bigfoot is #3 on the list of Top 10 Unexplained Mysteries

We're not biased or anything, but we personally believe Bigfoot should be #1. Most UFO sightings are just Ball Lightning Weather Phenomenon anyways right? (Just kidding! Don't send us hate mail about this.)

With Bigfoot, besides the lack of hard evidence or a body, we have hair samples of an unknown primate (found in the United States), footprints, handprints, dermal ridges, and DNA samples. Some Bigfoot researchers believe mainstream scientists ignore Bigfoot evidence for fear of damaging their reputations in pursuit of what some would call a myth. Yet if Bigfoot or other mystery creatures do exist, they are certainly worthy of serious scientific scrutiny. At the same time, since all previous samples were found to be hoaxes, inconclusive, or from known animals, scientists' lack of enthusiasm for spending time and resources on yet more such evidence is understandable.

While I await your hate mail with open arms about the UFO comment, watch this cool clip:

Erickson Project: Mike Rugg suggests Bigfoot 'feral human' theory

Mike Rugg on the Bigfoot Discovery Museum Show last year in November was just as excited about the Erickson Project as he is today. Mike predicts the DNA study will show Bigfoot to be more human than ape.

"I do believe that part of the Bigfoot phenomena has to do with feral human beings. I do believe that there are feral human beings among us in various parts of the country. Little bottle neck gene pools of them, perhaps families who have adopted feral lifestyle over successive generations have engaged in inbreeding," Mike said.

Mike believes some Bigfoot events are probably feral people. He predicts, "If you check their DNA, it’s likely that they’re going to come out pretty normal… pretty human."

"They’re going to look and act very, very different," Mike added.

This is a compilation of various tweaks to the frame grab that has been making the rounds on the interwebs from the Erickson Project documentary . Google it if you haven't heard about it. As I say in the video, I make no judgments, and I make no claims.

Update: I turned comments off because people take themselves way too seriously about this kind of stuff. I'm just having a little fun. I have not particular conviction about this image one way or the other.

Is there a marked difference between Bigfoot and a Sasquatch?

Many people are still asking what is the difference between Bigfoot and Sasquatch. Fortunately for us, we have Matt Moneymaker from the BFRO to answer that question:
Lisa Zimmer

Is there a marked difference between Bigfoot and a Sasquatch? Or is Bigfoot a specific Sasquatch? Are they related to Yetis?


Matt Moneymaker  They are two words for the same type of animal. Sasquatch comes from Canada. Bigfoot comes from the U.S.
