first of all...Norway House is not north of Thompson. The family meant the tape was being analyzed not enhanced by the Canadian Broadcasting Company as to it's validity other than being a hoax. There have been several hunters in that area close to the turn of the river who did smell something like skunk and wet dog plus horse altogether. There are several cabins along the banks of the river along with a school cabin for outdoor education. Now my daughter did say they always heard cracking and crunching sounds from the forest near them and a sound like crying women. But they always blamed the class clowns. There are tracks that have been photographed and measured at 16 inches in length no word on the width tho. I think you would feel stressed too if the whole community swarmed your house to see your tape. He's a stand up guy who doesn't deserve this.

thanks for the excellent inside information. can you provide us with any details ? have you seen the tape?

it would be cool to go see.

and to the above poster dragon...

what paper did you read that in ?

The Edmonton Journal. It was just a tiny little article, mentioned some guy filmed a bigfoot. No pic or anything, though, it was only a paragraph or two. The article didn't say much, unfortunately. Guess no one cares about bigfoot around here, lol.

thats weird that they would have it that early. im trying to figure out how this spread so fast. it has some wide coverage on the internet.

Your right, I was thinking about Nelson House. Norway House is east of where I am in the interlake region.

With the people who shot the tape trying to sell it so fast it has a "Hoax-ey" feel to the story. But then again if it is the real deal then the people are gonna be attacked by skeptics, skeptics like to go through peoples background and find that kid you beat up in 3rd grade and have him tell the stories about you pulling pranks on people. I guess I would sell the thing too, if it's genuine then those people are gonna get scrutinized like no one would believe. As we all now, the the skeptics out there like to discredit the person before the evidence.

This could be bigger than the Patterson film folks. Let's see what the pro's think after it is examined closely. Stay tuned.

Ive recently pieced together this from another source.

Bobby is Indian, a Cree, part of First Nations.

His close friend and advisor a member of the tribal council,

tells me that the creature is about 7 ft tall, the video is 45 sec, and Bobby dropped the camera from shock, when it turned to look at him from the other side of the river.


They are in Winnipeg now getting legal advice and are already being MOBBED BY THE MEDIA.

I am sure that someone, hopefully me, will soon get access and
perhaps a contract to put it in a BF TV DOC.

It may show up on TV news... not sure.

Video is digital video, probably hi-8

They made some vhs copies.

Tracks are 18 in with a 6 ft stride.

Two dudes who went over to see the tracks chickened out
when they found the tracks going into "the bush" (a thicket)
and when I contacted one, he denied he went and then denied he
knew the other guy, (even though they work in same office....)

RCMP says the gov't land is NOT sealed off and hikers can still hike there.

This seems to contradict the video lenght of nearly 3 mintues.

Who knows.

Ive been emailing people who may have seen the footage for some details. Hopefully I will get some.

In case anyone is still following this, there was another small story in my local newspaper about it. I'm cutting&pasting the article from the online link verbatim, rather than providing a link, because they only make recent articles available free online, and if anyone comes to look at it in a few weeks, it won't work.

Bigfoot sighting in northern Manitoba called into question by zoologist

Steve Lambert
Canadian Press

April 22, 2005

WINNIPEG (CP) - Despite mounting excitement over a reported sighting of Bigfoot in northern Manitoba, a zoologist is warning people not to believe the hype.

"I would say I'm very skeptical, because indeed most of these purported sightings prove to be hoaxes in the end," James Hare, a professor at the University of Manitoba, said in an interview Friday.

"There is absolutely no credible scientific evidence of the existence of Bigfoot or Sasquatch or whatever you want to call it."

Many residents in the remote community of Norway House are thrilled about a two-minute, 49-second piece of videotape shot by ferry operator Bobby Clarke last weekend.

Hundreds of residents have visited Clarke's home to see the tape. Some say it shows a large, hairy creature walking upright in the Nelson River.

Clarke has stopped showing the videotape and is hoping a media outlet will pay a lot of money for it, said a relative who did not want to be identified.

Clarke travelled to Winnipeg earlier this week to look for a company that could enhance the video image, but was back in Norway House on Friday and not returning calls.

The reported sighting has also caught the attention of Vancouver author and amateur Bigfoot researcher Chris Murphy.

"It could be a highly credible sighting," Murphy said. "Manitoba has had 35 sightings that we have recorded."

Murphy points to dozens of oversized footprints that have been recorded across North America over the years as proof of Bigfoot's existence.

In some cases, hair-like samples have been found that have not been traced to any known animal, he said.

But in the end, Bigfoot believers have not been able to produce solid proof such as a skeleton of the creature. Murphy said that's because the hairy critter's remains, like anything that lives and dies in the wild, would be quickly scattered and gobbled up by other animals and insects.

Hare acknowledged he cannot completely rule out the existence of Bigfoot-type creatures because new species of animals are discovered every so often.

But he believes bones or other remains would have been found at some point.

"If in fact they were being sighted that often, one would expect that some evidence would actually accumulate."

Bigfoot sightings, or at least sightings of large, hairy beings, have been captured on film before.

A 1958 film in California turned out to be a hoax carried out by a man named Ray Wallace walking around in a costume.

Bigfoot believers point to a 1967 film shot by Roger Patterson in California, which shows a dark, hairy mammal walking into a forest.

But some anthropologists have said the mammal's size and stride were suspiciously close to those of a human.

The link is but like I said, it won't be available for very long, hence the full article above.

Attention Update!

It's starting to get interesting now, bring on the pics and footage!!!

posted on Apr, 23 2005 @ 05:24 PM
Sounds really darn interesting...!!

To bad it isnt good enough quality to make out features.. That would have proven everything..

posted on Apr, 23 2005 @ 05:55 PM
very similar details as to what i posted. again they mention 45 seconds and not nearly 3 minutes like other accounts.

i found the water point interesting, that makes for a huge creature !

I kind of wonder why the tape would be so short though, i guess you would have to see it.

still interesting.

im keeping a constant eye out for tips.

Well hopefully it will get licensed and shown this last week of April, even if it would be still pictures first before the video is to be shown.

For a prominant orginization like BFRO to say that this incident points to a credible encounter is good news.

I hope they hurry up and release this one. I'm dying to see it.

If the image of book foot were relevant to the government, then the tape would have been confiscated from the family hours after it was known on the internet despite their request. Hence, the government could care less about Big foot ruling out the possibility that it's some government experiment gone wrong or aliens roaming around the world.

Here's a clip from the Discovery Channel's Daily Planet with Jay Ingram and expert.

damn im gettin antsy, some one has to be able to get ahold of this and host it

I was reading on another forum about some saying that someone from above top mentioned that a still frame would be released.

Who said this?

Question 2.

If the video was sent for enhancement to winnipeg, where would it go?

posted on Apr, 24 2005 @ 11:09 PM
Man, I can't wait until this video is released as it sounds like it could be rather compelling. I wonder if this ferry operator was ever able to record any of the "screams" of this animal. It has been stated that he had heard them in the past and was planning to try and get some audio. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
