For an object not renowned for rigidity how do they move it from ground to tailgate to museum and keep it in one piece?

If it's an authentic found fece it could have a consistency that does allow that kind of collection.

I'm curious about the provenance and if it's confirmable. Where and when was it found and in what environment? What was its shape when found - was it later "assembled" to appear as a single continuous fece? Are there photos of it in situ? Etc.

I was wondering that myself.

Just for grins, I did an image search on "Gorilla Feces". They don't look like that. Also, the gorillas frequently eat them. I've actually seen that first hand at the zoo.

What's the deal with that logo? The right half looks more or less like your traditional footie face, all apelike and such. But the left side looks like some dude with weird facial tats, and maybe an auxiliary orifice or two on his forehead. Doe this have some symbolic meeting, or is it some sasquatch in-joke or something??

I figured the left half was the guy running the "organization", which appears to be just another tourist trappe.

When I read this, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. What exactly is a Bigfoot Research and Tech Vehicle? Because if it's the vehicle pictured above, it look's like they just slapped some stickers on their car door.
More likely removable magnetics. Then any vehicle can be instantly converted into a "Bigfoot Research and Tech Vehicle" at a moments notice.
Except new Ford trucks. They're made of aluminum.

ETA: How, would any earthly creature, Figboot, or anything else, lay such a log, in such a long straight line? Get up to a good run and just hork it out mid-stride? I mean, seriously, this is a more important question than what did it, it's HOW, how it did it???

I'm skipping the video. Does it say where it was found and what environment? Any pictures in situ before collection? Is this really a Dr. Matthew Johnson project?

I stand corrected - looks like a real turd. Someone straightened out a bear turd and spray-waxed it.

Yeah, it's Dr. Matthew Johnson, who doesn't know how to use the camera on his phone.

Here's a second video featuring the turd, and another exhibiting how far gone this guy is. He's so far out there that I'm not even going to bother with anything connected to him anymore.

I'm guessing you've done the necessary scientific research to back this up, including, but not limited to, creative scale modeling that would be required to verify the above linear excrement hypotenuse, so I won't bother to ask, and will simply take you at your word. Thanks again for the colorful and vivid explanation.

The hydraulic pressure required...

If it shoots out like that when it's solid, how far does it go when footie gets the galloping trots...

The whole thing is another example of the pseudoscience on display with the turd. I mean, a 33" turd sounds impressive, right? It must be from a bigfoot, right? Well, how long are human and/or black bear poops when laid end-to-end on a truck bed?

It might not be the work of a single Bigfoot. Think of an assistant such as a doctor delivering a baby. A Bigfoot needs to poop and he has a buddy with him. The buddy uses his hands to delicately "deliver" the turd as a single continuous emission. This behavior could be instinctual or maybe culturally derived.

That's just stupid, you should be embarrassed. If you look at the clasper of a dragonfly you will see that they are perfectly shaped for this operation, assuming a very large dragonfly, of course.

Unlike many figboot discussions this one has become somewhat interesting.
