|Matilda the sleeping sasquatch|
The race to show the best video of Bigfoot since the Patterson-Gimlin film maybe ending, and it's not going to end the way you'd expected. First off, who is Matilda you ask? Matilda is a young female Bigfoot the Erickson Project claims to have footage of. What's striking is that the videos are in High Definition. Remember that photo of a sleeping Bigfoot the Erickson Project published in the newspaper last August? It showed a sasquatch sleeping in the woods. She looks very peaceful. According to people who have seen the 5 minute clip, towards the end, she starts to become alarmed at something, and then she starts to wake up. The footage is not far away, but it is not super closeup either.
The second video is the amazing one that only a few special people got to see. It is 14 seconds of a closeup HD footage of Matilda’s face. It is said to be better than the Patterson-Gimlin film. She is walking slowly towards the camera in the woods and the footage is from the chest up. Matilda looks something like a "Wookie" from Star Wars. She has dark, deep-set eyes that do not blink. Her eyes dart around though, and look paranoid and aggressive. They have a feral look about them. She’s basically a wild animal.

Last March, an anonymous YouTube user uploaded a clip describing what they saw in the Erickson Project footage of Maltida's face:
I am one of the few people lucky enough to have viewed the best clip…
Much more detailed than the Patterson/Gimlin Film
Here is just some of what you are going to see:
A full facial close-up:
- nose similar to ours (but w/ larger nostrils)
- slightly chapped, rosy lips
- pink mouth, blackish tongue
- pointed teeth, like fangs
- deep set eyes that dart around and don’t blink
- her head is round, shaped more like ours than a gorilla’s, but her brow is much more prominent
- she has lots of fine, flowing hair on her head (dark reddish brown) and soft short hair on her face
- when she walks away, she moves just like the female in the Patterson Film
I can’t wait ’til everyone can see this.
YouTube user describes what he saw on “The Erickson Project” video.
How did they get so close you ask? Well, they wore a ghillie suit to camouflage themselves to get the shots. According to Derek Randles on Bigfoot Busters Radio (Fri, Feb 5, 2010), Leila Hadj-Chikh, Ph. D. was the person who got close enough to get the HD shot of Matilda's face. We want to note, that prior to making that statement, he cautioned that he could be "misspeaking" about this.
Listen to Derek Randles for yourself on Bigfoot Busters Radio. Fast forward to 81 minutes and start listening from there:
So here's the rumor:
A person name Joerg posted this upsetting tidbit from an email exchange with Adrian Erickson's wife:
I just received a mail from Mrs. Erickson, wife of Adrian Erickson (Erickson Project). I do not want to quote from that mail, but here are two points from her answer that make me "desperate" -In those moments I ask myself: could it be that the Justin Smejas (no condemnation of this man!) of this world are the only ones who can solve the question, if BF really exists??! By killing one of our "wild forest brothers"?!!
Back to Mrs. Erickson`s mail. There are two points which seem to frustrate Adrian Erickson - and certainly frustrate me:
1. All of the "experts" backpedal when it comes to support the project - because of fear of ridicule by their "peers";
2. there seems to be no progress and therefore Erickson considers closing down the website "Sasquatch - The Quest" until there is some sign of progress (which probably means: at the moment there is NO progress at all!!).
Mrs. Erickson did not tell what "experts" she means, and she did not mention the Ketchum DNA project or any other people and projects.
However: I find it frustrating that such a groundbreaking and probably admirable project comes to a standstill because there is no support from the "experts"...Where is Jeff Meldrum et al? And does Mrs. Erickson`s answer to me also mean that we have to wait MUCH longer for the results of the Ketchum study - and therefore for the broadcast/release of the documentary, too?
Anyway: Perhaps one day we will be glad that once upon a time a certain Justin Smeja did go hunting in the Sierras of California - all serious and "ethical" efforts seem to be undermined in the end by ignorance and/or cowardliness.
The comment suggests frustration coming from the Erickson Project camp. It seems even they are getting tired of the delays and "considers closing down the website": The Erickson Project: Sasquatch the Quest.
If true, this is obviously not good news. If the Erickson Project drops out of the race, at least we still have the Olympic Project and the Sierra Kills book to look forward to right? We'll keep you posted on that too as we get more info.
Update: Sasquatch the Quest website now redirects to GoDaddy.com. That was fast! We'll wait to see if it comes back up again.
