Stumbled across this National Geographic documentary today. Dr Meldrum and a team of visual effects experts recreate the body proportions, technology
and gait required to have hoaxed the Paterson/Gimlin footage with some astonishing results.
Not that I needed convincing because here in Oz we call them Yowies.
If anyone can embed these YouTube images for me I'd be grateful.
This has been argued back and forth for decades. I'm a firm believer that the big foot in the Patterson footage is 100% real. If it was a suit is
was THE most advanced suit of that era and the suits that were purportedly worn by the hoaxman have been shown before and they look NOTHING like what
was shown in that video. Also if it was a suit it should have been able to be reproduced or the original should be lying around somewhere. There is
NO WAY in hell some anonymous guys would go to the trouble to recreate the breasts to the extent that they bounce so naturally and look so realistic
on the costume. NO WAY! Those breasts are the single biggest evidence that the footage is real.
Good work on keeping Crypto-Zoology at the fore. The overwhelming cultural and physical evidence about this beast, shouldn't be ignored. I live very
close to the Sasquatch "areas" of N.Ca. I camp in these areas quit often, I have heard calls in the night, but as to wether they are "growers"
scaring off any curious hikers or North American primates I can not say definetively.
I have seen what looks like typical primate "burrows" those could also be deer. I continue to keep my eyes to the ground hoping for prints, but have
yet to stumble across any. Of the eye-witnesses I have met, I can say corn on two of them, the others clear bible reading god fearing subjects that
dont believe in ghost, believe in the Sasquatch that roams their back hills and dense woods of the great west coast ranges.
In Australia, like in America, our indigenous peoples have a vast number of stories handed down where they lived side by side - but not always in
harmony - with the Bigfoot.
I have a friend that has sent countless scat and hair samples to America for analysis as the labs in Australia aren't interested. These findings
always come back the same "Primate of unknown origin". He has also had four separate sightings to date, though he does actively seek them out as
well as research the sightings of others.
Thing is in Oz we don't have anything remotely like this creature. No bears, no apes/monkeys/pongids of any type at all.
Landscape is also very rugged and a large proportion of our East Coast has been set aside as National Park. Anything could be in there undiscovered
This video is great, it's really nice to see them lay all aspects out like that. I also spoke with a documentarian that actually got to speak with
Gimlin, and the man quotes that what they saw that day was completely real. This footage breakdown just puts the icing on the cake.
I also watched those Videos and I still see alot of unanswered questions pretainting to the documented existence of " Big Foot . For one , the Map of
the US where they show the multiple reported Big Foot sightings . If this Creature actually existed , then how could they migrate from state to state
without being detected by more people ? Could one reason be that there are indigenous populations of Big Foots in every one of those states that
reported sightings ? Hard to believe to me . Another vague explanation they give in those videos is their theory that as of yet , no Skeletal Remains
of a Big Foot have ever been found because a Wooded enviorment does not preserve bones very well . Ever see dead Deer bones lying around in the Woods
? I have , so that explanation seems kind of weak IMO . The Patterson Film is still very convincing though of it not being a Man in a Gorilla suit ,
and until there is more concrete evidence such as a body or more detailed Video evidence , this Mystery wiil still unfortunately stay Unsolved .
the fact that the sightings seem to be concentrated in certain areas should be considered as evidence of the creature being real. Not the other way
if you found deer bones in the woods consider yourself lucky. Coming across the bones of say, a bear that died of natural causes, is extremely rare.
So if bigfoot has far less numbers than bears finding its remain would be practically impossible.
the mystery is solved in my opinion. I have always thought the patterson vid to be very credible and this video only ads to that credibility. This
creature WILL turn up one day. It's only a matter of time.....
He...He.... You know , you just reminded me of an Old TV episode of the Six Million Man where Steve Austin meets a Big Foot in the Woods and finds out
it came out of an Alien Flying Saucer . LOL , could Big Foot be an Alien Life form , or a Crearture from another Dimention ? .......Hmm .. Naw , Jeez
, I need another Beer .........
There's nothing like that in the UK that I know of. There are reports of big cats but this country is so small that if there was anything like a
bigfoot, it would have been found already. America probably has forests the size of England so bigfoot has a very sizeable playground there.
People can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong though.
Sure its possible a big foot did exist, but with our current technology and expanded civilization you would think we could get some clear evidence
that the world would believe.. not just the want to believers
