Repost: Searching for Bigfoot in Washington State

Does Bigfoot really exist? Mike Barish travels to Washington State and links up with a real life Sasquatch expert to try to coax him out of his forest hideaway. Mike Baris writes on his blog: Bigfoot. Sasquatch. Yeti. Whatever you call it, you’ve most certainly heard tales of an ape-like creature that lives in the woods. Is it the missing link? Is it a prehistoric beast that defied extinction? Or, is it simply a myth with a few ardent believers? I ventured to the woods of Whidbey Island in Washington State to attempt to find out for myself. I met up with Paul Graves, a Sasquatch expert, part of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization and a man who has dedicated his life to studying and searching for this seemingly mythical animal. I, of course, am already the father of a yeti. Granted, he’s a SkyMall product who I’ve forced to bake brownies, but he’s mine and I love him. That said, I wanted to find the real thing. At his cabin in the woods, Paul showed me the tools of the t

Animal Planet: 6 Reasons to Believe in Bigfoot, Courtesy of the BFRO

The new Animal Planet show "Finding Bigfoot" gives several reasons to believe in Bigfoot. They've asked Matt Moneymaker and the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization to count down what they believe to be the strongest pieces of evidence for the existence of Bigfoot. The BFRO gave six reasons why a giant ape-like creature may be lurking in the forests and wild places of North America. THE EVIDENCE FOR BIGFOOT: The number of credible witnesses and their geographic distribution. The scientific examination of casts and photos of footprints. The Patterson-Gimlin footage. Native American folklore about bigfoots. Sounds recordings attributed to bigfoots. Healed dermal scars on track casts. You can read the full article over at Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot page .

BFRO: Spokane figure could be a man in dark clothes

The BFRO or the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization founded in 1995 is a scientific research organization exploring the bigfoot/sasquatch mystery. In the past few days they have received several emails asking about their opinion about the new footage from Spokane, Washington. The clip has been shown on a few news channels in that part of the country and around the world. Although they are not calling the video a hoax, they are questioning the behavior of "Samantha" who originally uploaded the footage. "There may be very valid reasons for Samantha to remain anonymous, but that's not the typical pattern for authentic footage," said the BFRO. BFRO: Now that you've seen the footage you'll see what I'm talking about. It could be a man in dark clothing running by, perhaps even staged to run by. At this time the camera person (a female) has chosen to remain anonymous, except for her first name: Samantha. It is poor form to involve children in

Researcher's Analysis of Footprint Casts Suggest Bigfoot Inbreeding

Jaime has been tracking a couple Bigfoot individuals in the Sierras for about 3 years now. He has made some interesting discoveries about the footprints he found. In this video he examines 10 and 8 inch tracks he picked up over the years. The pairs are at least a year apart. Jaime noticed "how long the heel looks and size difference between the pairs" and sees possible inbreeding. Jaime: This is an examination of the 10 and 8 inch tracks I have been picking up. The pairs are at least a year apart. Notice how long the heel looks and the size differences between the pairs. The 8 inch casts were taken at least 100 miles apart. Check out my site as I go into the probabilities of why this could be as I do an analysis of this. If this is inbreeding then the byproducts of inbreeding can be small adults and slow growth, something that must be considered. Do they look like a match to you?

Who is Cliff Barackman?

Cliff Barackman teaches how to photograph Bigfoot using game camera Also see: Cliff Barackman Explains Using Your Senses Cliff was born in Long Beach California, in 1970. His first bigfoot encounter occurred while camping in Northern California. Determined to understand the nature of his experience, he began immersing himself in sasquatch research. After engaging in squatching expeditions up and down the west coast, from the Sierras to the Cascades, he finally settled in the Pacific Northwest. Considering the high concentration of sasquatch sightings and similar sasquatch encounters, Portland was a practical residence for a dedicated bigfoot researcher. Today, Cliff splits his time between filming Finding Bigfoot for the Animal Planet, and teaching the fourth grade. Cliff just recently launched a website dedicated to the new show on Animal Planet call Finding Bigfoot. This is where you will get exclusive behind the scenes commentary by Finding Bi

Happy Memorial Day Bigfoot Footage

The Memorial Day Bigfoot Video This video was filmed by Lori and Owen Pate in 1996 on Chopaka lake north Central Washington state. This video has been yet to be proven real or fake. Before there was the Ketchikan Alaskan Bigfoot , or the Spokane River Bigfoot , there was another famous video that made it's way into the mainstream on this special Memorial Day holiday. Countless articles, blogs, and television shows have scrutinized the video, and has yet to prove whether it's real or fake. Just like it's grandmother Patty, from the infamous Patterson-Gimlin film, it has stood the test of time. It has been 15 years since the release of the video, and yet no scientific study, can conclusively prove it to be a hoax. That's what makes this one special. The Memorial Day footage is a Hi-8mm video that is purported to show a Bigfoot. It was recorded on May 26, 1996, by Lori Pate at Okanogan County, Washington's Chopaka Laka while on a fishing trip with her family and

She's been sitting on the roof top of her townhouse in Venice, CA enjoying the warm California sun. If I knew that would be my punishment I would commit a crime... I'm just sayin. Source:

Animal Planet: Finding Bigfoot Clips (New)

Time for Animal Planet to stop teasing and show us some actual clips. Here you go. Thanks Animal Planet! Enjoy. Finding Bigfoot: Large Footprints While researching a bigfoot sighting in northern Georgia, the team comes across a pair of large footprints and decide that, yes, these were made by a sasquatch. Finding Bigfoot: The Bigfoot Lottery The bigfoot team decides that they may have found actual bigfoot footprints, which they say are extremely rare. Are they being fooled or is this the real thing? Finding Bigfoot: A Howl In the Woods The bigfoot team descends on a Georgia forest with night vision and thermal imaging cameras. They take turns "calling out," but when something seems to call back, they are stunned. Finding Bigfoot: Bigfoot's Handprint? The team meets a woman who claims Bigfoot opened up her back door. Amateur video shows a greasy smear mark that she claims is Bigfoot's handprint. Is she right? Finding Bigfoot: Real vs. Fake Evidence

Aussies hanging out with crazy American Bigfoot Researchers

Or  Click here to watch video The Aussies have been hanging out with the FB/FB (Facebook Find Bigfoot) guys for a few weeks now. On May 22, they decided to update us on what they thought about the expedition and Bigfoot so far. The verdict? They're still undecided about Bigfoot. That's why this is so interesting. You see, it's a lot more interesting when you have people asking the right questions, like, why haven't we found any Bigfoot bones, or why haven't we captured one yet? These great questions only come from innocent bystanders and innocent Aussies. Nevertheless, these Australians hope to be proven wrong. FYI: Aussie is Australian slang for an Australian. Matt Sharp (one of the Aussies from the video): Hey guys, we do not believe in the existence of Bigfoot. However, I strongly believe in the 'possibility' that it could exist. The film is not about documenting the existence, it's about documenting the culture and community of rese

Monsters' Ball: Matt Moneymaker not afraid of Bigfoot, truly has monster balls

The Science Channel released a clip showing how brave Matt Moneymaker really is. While others are scared to death after hearing giant rocks being thrown into the water nearby, Matt remained calm "like he had seen this before", said one researcher. Matt is a former military man   (corrected, see Matt's comment below, thanks Matt) and President of the BFRO, so he is not afraid of anything. Matt Moneymaker Before they began their Bigfoot research, Matt warned the team that "if you go into their area at night, they will try to intimidate you and make you leave. There's various things they will try to do to scare you out." Stories like this is no wonder the researchers were scared to death!

Something new, Something furry, Something blurry captured on security camera

Unidentified Update: Video was filmed near Upton Massachusetts about 30 miles west of Boston. The creature in the video looks a little small to be a Bigfoot. What makes this video interesting is how large the creature appeared on the tree before it jumped down. Too blurry to tell exactly what kind of animal it is. Whatever it is, it moves fast! Uploaded by lucysandini on May 26, 2011 This is security video captured on 5/25/11 at my house. Keep your eye on the tree next to the vehicle across the street. Watch as the blurry object descends the tree, seems to attack something in the driveway and then climbs back up the trees actually going from tree to tree. My own Bigfoot lol.

Honor our heroes and adopt a war dog

Image Hero war dog helped get Osama bin laden Did you know you can adopt a war dog? According to the AP , when these war dogs retire from their duties overseas, they usually go up for adoption. Up to 300 war dogs go up for adoption each year and adopting one is not cheap. Owners often have to pay $1,000 to $2,000 to bring them back to the U.S. These military dogs only fly commercial, so it's gonna cost you an arm and a leg. However, if you love the outdoors and want that sense of protection, you can always use another best friend. A best friend is priceless. The AP : While about 300 retired U.S. military dogs are put up for adoption each year, military officials say they've received more than 400 adoption applications in the three weeks since the May 2 raid. In past generations, most military dogs were euthanized once their tours of duty were done. "They made a really big deal about Cairo being a super dog but all dogs in the military are super dogs,

BFResearchSE breaks down Spokane Hiking Bigfoot

"I am sold on the motion and even the head." -  BFResearchSE The first official breakdown of the Spokane Bigfoot by BFResearchSE shows hair on legs, convincing stride, sloped forehead and lightness on face. Below is a list of the breakdown: If they did fake it, they did an incredible job. Does not look like pants leg. Looks like a lot of hair around the legs. The stride is convincing. Difficult for humans to do. Humans naturally lift knee to pull forward. The bigfoot pull forward in such a fluid movement. Looks like a lanky youngster, still growing (maybe) Does not see any flaws (in the video) Sloped forehead Lightness on face, does not look like mask. Would be blown away if this was a fake.
