Cliff Crook Gives Up On The Sasquatch Case


Editor’s Note: Jonathan Poulsen has been researching the Sasquatch since 2008, but really involved himself heavily in 2011. He has since devoted his life to the near impossible challenge of verifying the existence of the Sasquatch. Shawn refers to him as the Bigfoot encyclopedia.

Cliff Crook, who has been investigating the Sasquatch phenomenon since he claimed his first sighting in 1956, has recently made a post to his website BigfootCentral.com that he has stepped away from the field.

After his initial 1956 sighting near Duvall, Washington, Crook became hooked on the Sasquatch mystery. Throughout the 1970s, he sold various pieces of Sasquatch-related merchandise aimed at tourists including postcards, bumperstickers, shirts, hats, and a map of alleged sightings. Also, Crook claimed he had a 7-point system for detecting faked tracks (very similar to the system Krantz had). In 1982 he opened 'Bigfoot Central' out of his house in Bothell, Washington. Bigfoot Central's goal was not to search for and prove that the Sasquatch exists, but to collect eyewitness reports and other bits of information in order to find out how they co-exist with nature.

In 1987, Crook claims he served as an official consultant for the film 'Harry and the Hendersons'. Many are dubious of this claim since his name did not appear in the credits. However, after doing some research, I've found a newspaper article about how the production company asked Crook for his assistance and his willingness to proceed.

In 1995, Crook bought 7 out of 14 pictures depicting what appears to be a Sasquatch. Several investigators, especially those from the newly formed BFRO, claimed that the photo was a fake. This led to a smoldering feud between Crook and BFRO founder Matt Moneymaker.

In 2010, Crook claimed he had proof for the existence of the Sasquatch. He claims that large humanoid footprints found on the Paluxy river in Texas alongside dinosaur tracks proved that not only creationism is correct, but that the Sasquatch existed/exists (since the fossil tracks match up with footprints he found near Mt. Rainier).

These are among the most significant of Crook's impacts on the field of 'Sasqualogy' (a term he coined in 1970).

    1. Well there's no such thing as Bigfoot so yes this and every other photo is fake.

    5. To be intellectually honest, the photo is 100% real.

      However, the beast-like creature set in the creek is a 10-12" piece of modern art.

    6. If this is an actual bigfoot,then Patty is not. Bigfeet can't look that different.

      Being that this is a tiny figurine that doesn't move, Patty seems to be the more plausible choice as to which one is more likely to be a real bigfoot.

      Delete
    7. None of the above comments are me, by the way. And I totally agree anon, why do all audio recordings, vids, pics and print casts and hair samples look different? In no way is the evidence consistent with a real, biological entity.

      And other psycho anon, a LOT of people on this blog see through the BS, just like me

    8. It's clear by the traffic a thread like this gets that it pleases the trolls. Anyway. This photo's always bothered me for the head position mostly, it's probably fake whereas Patty evidently is not so yes Sasquatches do in natural fact exist.

  2. Well rip Cliff, he's been around forever...lots of experience. Also a good sculptor which helped lol.

    That pic always cracks me up when you think how small the figurine is. He knew the concept of scale well.

  9. A fun post from jref for the belIevers to have a lIttle thInk about...

    "For Bigfoot to exist, it has to have instincts and capabilities beyond those demonstrated by any other animal, including humans. How else could such a large creature consistently avoid detection and documentation? Bigfoot's greatest evolutionary advantage is being able to instantly adapt to evade whatever new technology is thrown at it. How does Bigfoot manage not to be seen by infrared cameras? It just knows, that's why. The latest gamecam technology? Bigfoot's on to it. Why do you think Bigfoot scat is inevitably similar to bear scat? It's because Bigfoot knows you're looking for his poop and tailors his diet and internal flora to be indistinguishable from other large forest mammals.And it should come as no surprise that Bigfoot DNA is the same as human DNA. Bigfoot is aware of DNA technology, so he has mutated his own DNA to match that of a human. It's foolish to even try. We are Wile E. Coyote, Bigfoot is the Road Runner."

    7. My brother had a kegger once and this giant blond amazon girl went to the bathroom. She came out and said something was wrong with the toilet. When they went in there they saw a turd so big around it would not go down the toilet. They had to break it up with a fireplace poker and flush it a few times. So a pop can aint nuthun big.

    11. What the Randi worshippers don't get is that Bigfoot's no ape they're primal people, hence the ease they stay alert and at our distance. Plus authorities surely must know despite saying differently, this alliance has been quite successful up until now but its scheming time's fast running out though.

  11. Great last name - Crook.

    He was a go-to guy for Seattle media thru the 80's and even 90s. Like Paulsen said, tried to come back in 2010 but I never really heard much about it. Something about tying creationism w/ dinosaur prints in Texas?

    2. Because it obviously looks so damn fake. I knew it was a fake many many years ago when it first hit the scene. It was practically instantly noticed (by me) that this was a small figurine. The grass blades were a dead give-away. I honestly feel sorry for idiots who just weren't born with the ability to figure stuff like this out almost immediately.

  20. The grass that bigfoot is standing next to is called Reed Canary Grass which grows 7' tall. Cliff Crook has been lied about by many, especially MM. Cliff also ran his museum along the Columbia River for years. His goal had nothing to do with selling tourist trinkets. CC, like other long timers, probably knows more about bigfoot then everyone here. Maybe including myself.

  22. I've probably seen more Bigfoot than anyone in the world but it never gets old seeing that eyeshine in the dark and smelling that foul stench as a Sasquatch is hiding nearby thinking I am not aware of its presence. This has nothing to do with this thread I know but I just want the people to know the thrill of being close to a Bigfoot is the same the 100th time as it is the first time. Study the craft and seek the truth. Clear your thoughts in the woods and think like a Bigfoot. If you consistently do this you WILL find what you are looking for. Do not show fear because these beasts sense it and WILL attack in packs. Go into the woods my pupils with a strong mind and pure soul and Bigfoot will find YOU.

  23. I don't know about his picture or him, but I am 52 years old, and I have never told anyone this before but when I was about 11 years old I was traveling with my grand parents to a town in Texas called avenger, after getting their about 7 pm my dad and uncle wanted to go night fishing,we went to the lke called lake of the pines, my dad and uncle was in the small flat bottom boat and I was fishing from the bank. By about 10 we had caught a few fish, well they were way out in the boat, I was on the bank fishing under some huge power lines, well standing there. I could hear like a vibrating sound from the lines, I was looking up and suddenly I herd I loud growl from the trees, when I looked with my flashlight what I saw I have never forgot,or have never told anyone but my few family, I saw a hairy man creature my guess 7 foot tall 450 lbs my guess staring at my he looked for about 20 seconds and walked into the woods, I know what I saw I still dream about it from time to time, I don't want money or fame just to tell you what I was as a young boy in Texas one winter night, so if you don't believe it's ok but I know what I saw and it still haunts me, I am not hiding anything if you want more details you can email , Thank you. wabbott11@aol.com
