A Colorado man named Gary Bouvier was only 13 when his father filmed a Sasquatch-like figure hopping from rock to rock as if it was trying to avoid stepping in the snow. This footage is older than the Patterson-Gimlin footage of 1967. Gary's father was so weirded out by the incident that he and the other scout leaders had a very stern talk with the boys and asked them not to leave the camp at night. According to Gary, even on his deathbed his father still referred to the figure in the video as an "animal," and not a man. Finding Bigfoot's Cliff Barackman recently posted an update about the video on his blog and revealed something that was cut out of the Colorado episode. A digital forensics lab detected a second anomaly in the half-century-old footage:
What was most interesting was something that was not shown in the episode (although I understand this segment is in the Canadian version of the show, as Canada has fewer commercials than here in the US, and the episodes are a bit longer). We were able to take the footage to a company called CinemaLab, based out of Englewood, CO. They are a film laboratory that specializes in media restoration, preservation, and analysis. They have done media forensic work for law enforcement agencies including the FBI.
Due to the way the file was transferred to digital format (see above), little more info could be squeezed out of the footage. However, they verified the presence of another possible figure in the woods nearby, as well as the trailing “coat” or “hair” that was mentioned above. They said that if they had the original film, much more could be determined from the footage. Since the episode is now in its final form and has already been aired, I will be taking this on myself to get the analysis done. I have contacted Gary about this and have his blessing to do the follow-up work. I will announce any further findings on my blog in the coming months.
