Bigfoot/Sasquatch Fact or Fiction?
The Patterson footage is obviously fake. It's a guy running around in a monkey suit wearing a old style football helmet with fur glued to it!
Look at the bottom of it's foot. When a still image is shown it's obviously a white boot sole. Who has white colored feet?
You folks just ignore the truth even if it's right there in front of you. Now take a deep breath and get over it....IT'S FAKE....THAT BIGFOOT FILM IS FAKE. Look up the picture yourself!
How did Patterson sneak up and captured film of Bigfoot? Why is the video such a poor quality? It should have captured a better recording then that crappy footage. He should have used better equipment!
Does the Patterson footage show a female Bigfoot?
Could it simply be a distant cousin of Gigantopithecus
still alive and hanging around out there?
Gigantopithecus is an extinct genus of ape that existed from roughly one million years to as recently as three-hundred thousand years ago, in what is now China, India, and Vietnam, placing Gigantopithecus in the same time frame and geographical location as several hominid species. The fossil record suggests that the Gigantopithecus blacki species were the largest apes that ever lived, standing up to 3 metres (9.8 ft) and weighing up to 540 kilograms (1,200 lb).

Cool detailed thread Slayer....S&F
This is a topic that has puzzled me alot..... My initial thoughts are fiction, reason being is that in the region this thing is said to be found isnt exactly in uncharted territory, so why hasnt there been more sighting of it.
Surely there have been teams that have explored these regions purposely looking for it, its big, so it needs to hunt
Thousands of people have reported seeing a creature with the discriptions of Bigfoot. Witnesses often report seeing the creature and discribe it with many similarities and in similar locations. Bigfoot reports are generally in areas with low human population and in places that have an annual rainfall in excess of 20 inches.
Experts say that eyewitness reports are very unreliable and should be treated with caution. It is often thought that eyewitnesses could be mistaking a bear standing on its hind legs for Bigfoot. The majority of sightings occur where bears do exist. Experts say that 70 to 80 percent of Bigfoot sightings are not real and that most are either a hoax or a misidentified animal.
In 2002, Philip Morris of Morris Costumes (a North Carolina-based company offering costumes, props and stage products) claimed that he made a gorilla costume that was used in the Patterson film. Morris says he discussed his role in the hoax privately in the 1980s but first admitted it publicly on August 16, 2002, on Charlotte, North Carolina, radio station WBT-AM. Morris claims he was reluctant to expose the hoax earlier for fear of harming his business: giving away a performer's secrets, he said, would be widely regarded as disreputable.
Morris said that he sold an ape suit to Patterson via mail-order in 1967, thinking it was going to be used in what Patterson described as a "prank" (ordinarily the gorilla suits he sold were used for a popular side-show routine that depicted an attractive woman changing into a gorilla.) After the initial sale, Morris said that Patterson telephoned him asking how to make the "shoulders more massive" and the "arms longer." Morris says he suggested that whoever wore the suit should wear wide football-type shoulder pads and hold sticks in his hands within the suit. His assertion was also printed in the Charlotte Observer.
