I should've included a more detailed description of this picture...
It wasn't taken in Texas, I believe I saw this on another website and the story that went with it said that a Forest Ranger was in his truck when he started smelling a scent that was God Awful so he pulled his truck off the side of the road to figure out where the source was coming from. It was in Florida where I think this picture was taken, and so he was walking along a ridge that looked down on a swamp 30 feet below and he heard splashing and grunting or something like that, so he leaned over the side of the ridge to look down, at this time he said that the smell had almost become unbearable. To his "amazement" when he looked down he saw this, and took a few pictures, there is a copy of the report he filed floating around somewhere on the internet, but I saw it and everything I just typed was basically summarized on it, so that's where the pic came from. Also, this picture has been minimized from how I first saw it, if any of you guys have photoshop, I unfortunately don't, would view it at a larger size you will beable to see greater detail. Anyways, Cheers...
An interesting looking 'bigfoot' photo allegedly obtained by a park ranger in the Wild Creek area near Mt. Rainier, Washingtion, and currently displayed on the Shadowlands Bigfoot page, is actually the latest creation of notorious, attention-hungry bigfoot hoaxer Cliff Crook of Bothell, Washington.
As more people have realized that this photo is a fake, Mr. Crook has tried to distance himself from it by suggesting that he may have been fooled by the unidentified person who allegedly sold him the photo. This is also not true. The photo itself and story of how Crook obtained it are both hoaxes by Mr. Crook himself.
Mr. Crook has been serving up and attempting to market fake bigfoot photos and other fabricated bigfoot evidence for several years now and is well known for doing so among veterans in the bigfoot research community. He claims to have been researching bigfoot for "longer than anyone". This is far from the truth, and typical of the mistruths continually pumped out by this individual.
Although it is not certain how this latest fake photo was produced, many conclude that is was produced the same way as many of his previous fake photos -- a sculpture model placed in an outdoor setting. Several of Crook's other fake bigfoot photos can be seen in the A&E video documentary "Bigfoot".
