Al Berry, One Of The Two Men Who Recorded The Sierra Sounds Just Passed Away [Bigfoot Language]

Image
Loren Coleman is reporting that Sierra Sounds’ Al Berry just passed away last night, January 30, 2011.

During the early 1970s, Al and his long time friend Ron Morehead went into the woods of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in eastern California and collected a series of alleged Bigfoot vocalizations called the "Sierra Sounds."

Contained within the Sierra Sounds collection are interaction vocalizations also known as "Samurai Chatter." Experts like R. Scott Nelson, a crypto-linguist, have declared the "Samurai Chatter" to be sasquatch language.

New January Press Release Suggests That "Finding Bigfoot" Helped Push Animal Planet Network To Best Start In Nearly A Decade

To give someone props, means to say congratulations for someone's accomplishment. It does not mean to give someone an object.

Author Lisa A. Shiel Chimes In On Ape-vs-Human Debate [Bigfoot Debate]

Image
As the debate about whether or not Bigfoot is more human or more ape heats up, we're starting to see more prominent players in the Bigfoot community stepping forward and speaking out. Recently Dr. Meldrum, in response to Robert Lindsay's article "misquoting" him, wrote these statements on Facebook:

[...]
I will say that humans are primates. No primates have underhairs. No human populations adapt to elevation by sprouting underhair.

Also, there are a lot of misconceptions and misrepresentations about my ideas concerning what sasquatch are -- more ape-like or more human-like. I don't appreciate others putting words in my mouth, who don't have a grasp of the principles involved.

- Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum
It seems this latest comment from Dr. Meldrum has sparked the attention of Lisa A. Shiel, author of Backyard Bigfoot and The Evolution Conspiracy. In an article today, Shiel wrote that she does not believe that Bigfoot is a human. "I like the theory that Bigf…

Watch Funny Bigfoot Reunion Video. Parodies Popular "Christian the Lion" Story [Humor]

Image
Editor’s Note: This is a post by Bigfoot Evidence contributor Vicki W.

If you are familiar with the "Christian the Lion" story and have seen the video showing the reunion of Christian and the men who raised the lion from "cubhood", you'll recognize the humor in this "Bigfoot reunion" video clip. Christian was the name given to a lion cub Australians John Rendall and Anthony "Ace" Berg bought in a London shop in 1969. As he grew, the men enlisted George Adamson in Kenya for help preparing Christian for re-introduction into the wild. He was successfully released and became the head of his own pride. A year later the men traveled back to Africa hoping to pay Christian a visit, but were uncertain whether he would remember them or respond favorably. The resulting reunion as the adult lion bounded towards his foster fathers, greeting them with seemingly joyous affection, was quite moving and became a popular video.

Robert Lindsay's Source: Bigfoots Use Tools And Fire

Our large brains, our upright posture and two-legged gait, our ability to use tools and fire, these are a few of the features that separate humans from the apes. What does it say about Bigfoot if it possesses these same attributes?

If You Believe In Bigfoot Is An Ape Theory, You May Want To Check This List For Your Name

Robert Lindsay believes there's a war going on between the "Ape Theory Gang" and the "Human Theory Collective." Lindsay says the Ape Theory Gang is mainly led by Bigfoot researchers like Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum. "[T]hey say that Meldrum’s stranglehold over Bigfootery is the biggest thing that is holding the field back. I am inclined to agree. I am starting to think that Lord Meldrum is a problem," Lindsay wrote in an article today.

Things That Make You Go "Woo." Is There a Curse on Filming Sasquatch?

Image
Editor’s Note: This is a post by Bigfoot Evidence contributor Vicki W.

Most of North America's tribal nations handed down cultural teachings about the Sasquatch. Names differed for them but the general description shared comparatively similar characteristics. The Native American's understanding of the origin and nature of the "wild men" varied from being considered simply another tribe, another animal, or even a supernatural spiritual entity, enabling it to become invisible at will. Some tribes believed that to witness a sasquatch was a bad omen, a warning of a tragedy to come or impending doom. Still others believed that locking eyes with the creature would bring certain death.

A Video Is Not Worth a Thousand Words

Editor’s Note:This is a guest post by Damian Bravo, a Sasquatch believer. You can join Damian's group Sasquatch Lives? on Facebook.

Video recordings of Sasquatch have also laid claim to the existence of the creature, but have also gained the same ambiguity that photography has brought to the creature’s existence. So many videos exist today showing a furry creature walking on two feet, which many are saying is just a man in a gorilla suit. So I asked myself what would make anyone think that because they have something on video, it will prove its existence?

The Difference Between Sasquatch Footprints And Yeti Footprints

Editor’s Note:This is a guest post by William Jevning (@bukwas01), 38 year veteran sasquatch investigator, and author of "Notes From the Field, Tracking North America's Sasquatch". Read more about Jevning at his Bigfoot blog, Bigfoot Researcher.

Over many years now, more has been reported about the Sasquatch than the Yeti. This was the opposite when the wildman first got news coverage. Many people think they are the same species, but their footprint structure is different.

Exclusive: A Message Regarding The "Body Recovery" Effort At Sierra Kills Site By Bart Cutino

Image
Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by A-BFRO Researcher, Bart Cutino. Cutino, 35, is an unabashed, unapologetic member of The Bigfoot Research Organization, a diverse group of about 200 researchers and adventurers. He was a participant at the Sierra Kills body recovery effort in July 2011.

Last night while taking a break driving southbound from some winter northern California research areas with my partner Rgr Leiterman, I happened to see both Lindsay's “interview” with Justin Smeja and the ridiculous accusations & exchange posted with Dr. Meldrum. Having been an invited participant during the body recovery effort in July 2011 & having become the closest confidant and liason (if you will) from the bigfoot community to those involved in the shooting incident, I thought I’d clarify some of the rampant speculation and sensationalized comments.

A Skunk Ape's Leg And Foot While Sleeping?

Image
Two years ago, Tim Fasano was virtually unknown in the Bigfoot community. Today, he has over 900 subscribers to his YouTube channel.

Back in 2010, after hiking 3 hours into an undisclosed location in Florida, Fasano captured on tape what looks like a skunk ape with its leg and foot sticking out from a palm cave. Tim was unarmed at the time and wasn't brave enough to try to find out what that foot belonged to. Tim suspected it was a bear at first, but after close examination of the video, he now believes that it was probably a skunk ape.

[Posted: 1/26/2012 10:30:00 AM]
Dr. Jeff Meldrum heard about Lindsay's article and decided to address it on his Facebook page. His message was clear: "Yesterday, Robert Lindsay posted an item reporting on events associated with the alleged shooting in the Sierras by Justin Smeja.

Yesterday, Robert Lindsay posted an article detailing the event that took place in July 2011 involving Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, Matt Moneymaker and a few other prominent Bigfoot researchers.

This is what I’ve been looking for all of these years.” According to the article, Meldrum then went down a list confirming that this was the real deal.

Imagine for a minute what renowned Bigfoot researcher Dr. Jeff Meldrum of the Idaho State University felt when he visited the Sierra Kills location and picked up a small piece of Bigfoot steak leftover from a dead Bigfoot.

What were his thoughts, concerns, worries, expectations and plans? How does he cope with the imminent discussion of what Bigfoot really is? Is it human or ape?

Meldrum has long held onto the theory that Bigfoot is a North American Ape, but what he found in July 2011 in the Sierra Buttes left him dumbfounded.

Yosemite National Park, renowned for its magnificent valley, great granite domes and peaks, waterfalls, giant sequoia, and spectacular high country, Yosemite is also home to one Paiute Indian Tribe that reside there.

Paiute Indian elders have told stories of encounters that the Paiute people have had with the Bigfoots or Sasquatches. In the Paiute language they have different names for them, one is Pahi-zoho. There were some with red hair, brown hair and black hair. The red headed ones were said to be the meanest.
