In the 80's (87 I think) I worked on a contract in Eureka, Ca.. The day we were packing the office to leave there was an article about a town Sheriff and I believe a Mayor confessing to fabricating the local Bigfoot story (Happy Camp area) and them being sentenced for fraud. Apparently they were in a small logging community and when the logging was shut down they came up with a phony video and footprints to try and save the town. The video is infamous and you have all probably seen it many times. It's the one of the Bigfoot crossing a clearing and stopping momentarily and looking towards the camera and then continuing off into the woods. They sold and made money off this for many years. Since then I have seen this video on many shows about Bigfoot and they never tell you the hoaxers have confessed and have been sentenced for the crime.

Did you know a real expedition found a place called Skull Island in 1937,
I thought the story of King Kong was fictional. Little did I realise that the story was based on an actual expedition to Skull Island.
