Russian Translator Badly Needed: Possible Bigfoot Tracks Discovered In Russia (Update: Translated)

Image
Bigfoot Evidence contributor Damian Bravo, while browsing YouTube looking for funny cat videos, inadvertently stumbled onto a Russian video filmed by outdoorsmen hiking around the countryside. Damian didn't pay too much attention to the video until the hikers started showing tracks in the snow. The title of the video is in Russian and after putting the text through Google Translate, it gave this confusing translation: "Bigfoot is a fact or a joke".

Unfortunately, as this article is being written, Mr. Stubstad is lying in his death bed and is not expected to live more than two weeks once this interview is released.

Watch This New Guinea Tribe's Amazing First Contact Documented On Film (Includes Spoiler)

Image
Watch this amazing video of the Papu tribe in New Guinea seeing "white men" for the first time. The YouTube description says it was filmed in 1976 and shows genuine reactions of fear, intrigue, and joy. This film reminds us that there are still tribes out there in the world with little to no outside contact. The reactions are amazing to watch in this video. It proves how fragile and bonded humanity really is and strikes hope and joy into our hearts.

Dr. Melba Ketchum: Delays And Paper Getting Sent Back Is Part Of The Peer Review Process

Image
As any scientist can tell you, the cornerstone of maintaining the quality of scientific papers is the peer review system. This process ensures that the information in any scientific publication is verifiable and meets quality standard. Papers that are submitted to scientific journals are reviewed anonymously by experts in the field. The paper either gets approved, rejected or sent back to the editor, with recommendations for improvements. Most papers require some degree of modification before publication.

3.4 Million Year Old Foot In Ethiopia Suggest Bipedal Species Had Opposable Big Toe [Video]

Image
Humans are the only living mammal to walk to two feet. Photo above is the partial foot of a 3.4-million-year-old hominin from eastern Africa that was published in this week's Nature Journal Online. The fossil hints that more than one hominin species may have existed between three and four million years ago, each with its own way of moving around.

Native people and the Sasquatch

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.

There exists an extensive history of the Sasquatch in Native tribal stories handed down through the generations and in ceremonial artwork. I give a partial list of tribes and names in my current book "Notes From the Field, Tracking North America's Sasquatch" identifying approximately 90 tribal groups and twice that many names alone.

Exclusive: This is a Bigfoot Evidence exclusive post provided by SasquatchLives? and The Bigfoot Report.

In a surprising turn of events, Robert Schmalzbach (Java Bob) has reached out to Ro Sahebi, producer and director of the mini documentary series “Extinct” and the new weekly live podcast on BlipTV by the same name. Robert is the author of the book “Monsters, Myth and Me” and is the host of “Intradimensional Facets” on BlogtalkRadio. Java Bob is putting in question none other than Dr. Melba Ketchum’s Bigfoot DNA study and has made some very wild accusations. He claims he has the documents to prove it.

Purported Bigfoot Sound Recorded Near Conway, New Hampshire

Image
Back in September 2011, a YouTube user named irvinyork, recorded this audio of a haunting sound while camping outside Conway, NH. It was recorded by the Saco River using a pocket recorder. This person does not believe in Bigfoot but posted the audio in hopes that someone can help identify the call.

"I have brought this to members of the New Hampshire forestry service and none could identify the animal in this recording," wrote irvinyor.

Famous Bigfoot Researchers Like Matt Moneymaker Receive Evidence Like This All The Time

Image
With the popularity of the Finding Bigfoot show skyrocketing and expecting to increase even more this June when season 3 airs, the number of reported sightings will certainly increase as well. In recent months, there have been many Bigfoot sightings reports where witnesses have made reference to the Finding Bigfoot show on Animal Planet, suggesting more people are feeling more comfortable coming forward with stories.

Excellent L.A. Times Article: "Bigfoot? He's not so elusive"

Image
The Los Angeles Times published a really good article about Bigfoot in the media. Rather than tell us there's no such thing as Bigfoot, the article acknowledges the rich history and lore surrounding the Bigfoot legend.

"Campfire stories, eyewitness reports and grainy videos have kept the legend alive for decades in the U.S. and worldwide. (The mythology goes back much further if you take cave drawings into account.)"
The article quotes a number of prominent Bigfoot researchers like Dr. Jeff Meldrum and Cliff Barackman. Dr. Meldrum is apparently working on an "expanded" version of "Legend Meets Science", which in our opinion is probably one of the best Bigfoot documentaries ever produced. Another film project mentioned is the Erickson Project documentary also known as "Sasquatch: The Quest". The film has been in the making for a few years now and it supposedly features High-Definition footage of a female Sasquatch named Matilda.

Conspiracy To Promote Sasquatch

Image
Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Josh Brown, Anthropology Major (Physical) from Sacramento CA, and CEO of "Skye Highland Outfitters".

I had a long debate recently with a friend of mine in Atlanta who is a Professor of Anthropology (We both were in MANY of the same Anthro classes in College). We started the conversation about Bigfoot being sighted in Georgia and the episode of Finding Bigfoot that showcased our home state. We both agreed, having both spent many a year camping in the areas scouted, that the idea of Bigfoot in Georgia was a farce. I want to just iterate that growing up in georgia, there were never reports of Bigfoots anywhere in the 70's or 80's when we were kids. There just weren't.

BamaBuckster1 Gives SnowWalkerPrime A "Big Thumbs Up" [Humor]

Seeing the World Through the Eyes of Sasquatch

Image
Editor’s Note:This is a post by Bigfoot Evidence contributor, Damian Bravo, a Sasquatch believer. You can join Damian's group Sasquatch Lives? on Facebook and the group's official page at www.sasquatchlives.com.

In many sightings of Sasquatch we hear descriptions of glowing eyes, most commonly red glowing eyes. In the last article (How Sasquatch May Be Primal & Feral Yet Intelligent) I wrote about how Sasquatch could possibly be a mutation that occurred sometime in the evolutionary tree of hominids. Many of Sasquatch’s physical attributes have been spoken of as super human and unbelievable. Now let’s take a look at the eye shine many say they have seen in their sightings, but we will take a look at it from a biological and scientific point of view.

Bigfoot Experts and Science Academics

Image
Editor’s Note:This is a guest post by Tom Fonner. He has been exploring the backcountry of Arizona for over 30 years. He enjoys the solitude and peace of the outdoors with a passion for wildlife, nature, and landscape photography, tracking, hiking, camping, and fishing. You can visit his blog at swbri.blogspot.com.

Recently I've observed an emerging similarity of the Bigfoot community's rising group of proclaimed experts to some of the established elite in science academics. There is an increasing number of individuals coming to the forefront as authorities on Bigfoot by researching the internet and having little or no field investigative experience. This is similar in many ways to what critics portray as the scientist who becomes an expert in his/her field of study without ever leaving the hallowed halls of the university library.

BFRO Expedition Organizer Matt Pruitt Tells His Side Of The Story Regarding NPS Citation

Image
On the morning of Friday, February 24th, National Park Service law enforcement rangers entered the base camp of a BFRO expedition near the Buffalo National River in Arkansas and issued a citation to organizer Matt Pruitt. Pruitt was cited for "conducting a business operation" in the park without a permit.

He admitted on his blog on Sunday that he was wrong for assuming he had all the necessary information related to the usage rules and regulations of the park. "I was wrong, and I paid for that mistake," he wrote.

When the story broke about Pruitt's citation, BFRO president, Matt Moneymaker responded and issued some statements regarding the February event. Although he cleared up some questions concerning the rules and regulations of national parks, there were still lingering questions about the accuracy of the original report by Chief Ranger, Karen L Bradford.

Show Notes:

Tim Fasano talks about ignorance in the Bigfoot world

Image
Florida Skunkape hunter, Tim Fasano, is now part of the Seminole Project and has been setting up trail cameras in the Florida swamps. Since his involvement in the project, he has been receiving comments on his YouTube channel about his research methods. One commenter suggested that Bigfoots can see infrared and will try to avoid trail cameras that emit infrared light. They say its ability to see infrared light is why it's rare to capture a Bigfoot on a trail camera. Fasano disagrees with this notion and uploaded the video below telling those people to support him or stay off his YouTube channel.

"Ignorance has reached pandemic levels in the Bigfoot world. Support me or stay off my site," Fasano wrote.

Image
Two brothers, Brent and Sean like to talk about everything paranormal. Brent claims that he has been a Bigfoot and is convinced that the creatures exists.

How to tell if someone is telling the truth about seeing a Sasquatch

Image
A lot of times when you talk to someone and they swear about what they saw, it's difficult to judge whether or not they're telling you the truth. We've heard stories about bear hunters and fishermen and their encounters with Bigfoot, but how can you tell the difference between what's true and what's not when you finally meet them in person?

Unlike in his videos, the FB/FB guy burps less when he's on the radio

Image
Early last year, Les Stroud was interviewed on KZOZ by radio hosts Jeff and Jeremy about a Bigfoot encounter he had while filming an episode of Survivorman. During the interview, Les Stroud mentioned he had two possible encounters with Bigfoot, but due to time constraints, he only told the first story. Shortly after the show aired, Les Stroud's interview was posted on Facebook Find Bigfoot where it was heard by countless Bigfoot enthusiasts who visited the site.

Photos Of The Day: Big Foot Bear, Jeff Meldrum's Thoughts On The Wallace Photo

Image
Big Foot Bear:

The bear photo above was posted on PNW Bigfoot's Facebook page. The photograph notes that bears could produce "Bigfoot" like tracks in then snow. When the temperature rises and falls, the snow changes the shape of the tracks and can be mistaken pretty easily for a Bigfoot: "Foot looks like in snow it could produce what one would assume was a BF track."

Leader Of BFRO Bigfoot Expedition Cited For Permit Violation

Image
Last month, on February 24th, BFRO expedition leader Matt Pruitt was cited for "engaging in a business without a permit or written agreement" by running a Bigfoot hunting expedition at the Buffalo National River in AR. According to the report from the National Park Service (U.S. Department of the Interior), 30 participants had paid between $300 to $500 each to be lead on a 3-day expedition. If you're wondering about the prices, the BFRO charges "newbies" the higher rate of $500 bucks.
