The photo above was taken by a Tennessee Bigfoot researcher named Scott Carpenter in October of 2011. Scott said the creature was "unaware" of him when he filmed it with his trail camera while walking pass a thick vegetation beside a trail.
It is one of many sightings of the purported "Dogmen" Scott has been writing about in his blog:
"I was only able to capture 12 frames of the Cryptid. It had its eyes closed as I walked right beside it then opened its eyes after I walked past. Was it afraid I would see its eyes and recognize it? You can clearly see the eyes open and its head move slightly. It also opens its mouth for some unknown reason."
Robert Lindsay reported that Ketchum's study proves the existence of the Dogman. If this is true, where or who is she getting the samples from? It's not clear whether Carpenter ever sent any samples to Ketchum but he seems to be a likely candidate.
"It’s possible that this may be a Dogman hair sample. It tested presumptive for Bigfoot, but possibly it was so different that Ketchum concluded that Dogmen were a separate entity," Lindsay said.
