If you don't know what is making a noise then just do a YouTube video and say it's Bigfoot. He obviously has nothing to lose by doing this. He already knows what the negative consequences would be and it doesn't bother him. Maybe he's already known as a trickster kind of fella. Good for goofing around.

I couldn't watch more than a couple minutes. What does the picture show and what is making the sound (which I didn't hear at all)?

Is it an actual animal making noises or is it all a hoax or what? I'll let someone else do the sleuthing.

Don't know about the sounds, but the photo is clear, and more of a fellow in a ghillie suit than anything else.

My name has been replaced by the designation "guest" (even though I was a member) on my remaining posts, the rest disappeared. Last time I looked the Parn's posts still are under his name. Go figure.

Can you tell me what time in the video that the picture is shown and any time that the sound is loud and clear?

The sounds sound like two portions of the Sierra sounds, I'm getting mixed indicators over whether they're being played back live or added in afterward. I'm currently leaning towards live.

I believe that the presenter is the hoaxer or may have help. The presenter isn't honestly looking for honest answers to a question about wildlife. It's another Bigfoot hoax and this guy is guilty. It's all just more Bigfootery.

More than 240,000 views. Damn.

To be fair, four of those are mine since I kept getting interrupted before I could get to where I could hear anything.

Anyway, for me the ****-eating grin when he smells the (notably marrowless) bone that was conveniently in the little stump right next to the trail camera while he's supposedly scared to death says it all for me.

The "Floyd-squatch" according to Mr. Floyd (in his first comment in the comment section):

"Do I think Sasquatch/Bigfoot is real? Technically it is, without a doubt, since Gigantopithecus once roamed our world and this creature is essentially a quadrupedal (but possibly bipedal) Squatch-like species! The Hominoid Paranthropus also once existed, and this species is similar to depictions of Sasquatch as well! Sasquatch could also be representative of something far more complex that we do not understand, such as multi-verses overlapping and entities thus slipping into our world from another!

My personal view as to what constitutes whether or not something is "real" is not entirely dependent on material existence though, which is my I lend some credence to that final statement! For example, my ideas and my imagination are real but immaterial. I can see them, feel them, and be impacted by them. So despite them not being something one can hold, they are definitely real! It is thus up to me to bring them to "life" by bringing them into a form that others in this material world can see and experience!

I am a Science Teacher, and while this is a rather unscientific thing to stay I stand by it! Perhaps we need to broaden our minds as to what we accept and consider as being "real"! In other words, Sasquatch is currently definitely "real" in an "immaterial world" apart from ours since at the very least it exists in our collective minds! We just need to figure out if it also exists in our world in a material form!"

This is a fine example of opening your mind so broadly that your brain falls out.

He's a science teacher, a Bigfoot hoaxer, and he uses way too many exclamation marks when he writes. He is other things too but I'll just stop there.

Can we please make an effort to find some more Bigfoot content to talk about.

Gotta be some good bigfoot stories, at the locked down trailer parks or something.

Only thing I can find is the Bigfoot Discovery Museum is asking for money.

I know he claimed to have a possible Bigfoot tooth at one time. I don't know if it went missing? I remember reading somewhere that a Bigfoot statue near the front of his museum had gone missing and was later recovered.

I'm skeptical of any untested artifact claimed the be from Bigfoot. If someone has a Bigfoot tooth why on earth would they not have it tested? That's easy, because they know it's not.

Here's a little something about the tooth.
Quote:
Glass cases contain skull reproductions, bit and pieces of compelling evidence, a fragment of a Bigfoot tooth, and some greenish, mulchy clump that we guess is sasquatch scat (the museum newsletter mentions bowel movement samples submitted for the all-important DNA testing) . . .
I remember something about having the tooth tested for DNA, and it going missing, but I can't find a link as of yet.

A bigfoot museum can get along without bigfoots. It really only needs a good supply of one thing, of which it has been claimed that there is one born every minute.

We had Mike on the show. It's been about 10 years or so back when it was Squatchdetective Radio. I remember him being one heck of a nice guy and very sharp too. He's not some backwoods hillbilly, I suppose he wouldn't mind being seen in that persona but in fact he's a well educated guy with wall hangers from Stanford.

If memory serves I think he found the tooth somewhere in the mountains near Santa Cruz? He thought it was a possible Bigfoot tooth. I can't remember if he was going to have it tested or even if they could get DNA from teeth then? I'll look for the show in the archive to see if Steve still has it.

But I've not heard about it going missing? Likely if it was tested and came back "not Bigfoot" the tooth and report would likely disappear and add to the "mystery" found at the Bigfoot museum. Not an accusation, but a definite possibility.

On Christmas night a number of people in a vehicle claimed to have seen an upright creature on the side of the road that could have been a bigfoot. This occurred in the south-east portion of British Columbia, Canada known as the Kootenays.
They went back later to take photos and - believe it or not - Matt Moneymaker claimed the tracks were bigfoot for sure and impossible to hoax!

Major Downer Alert! A local group of bigfoot enthusiasts did their own investigation and discovered the tracks were that of a moose.

Global News report here: https://globalnews.ca/news/7581006/b...b-c-community/

Talk about a slow news day and grasping for filler!

Two bigfoots often disguise themselves as a moose. Indeed, Max Throwmoney is coming out with a book, Moosefoot: the Amazing Truth, in which he demonstrates that all moose are two bigfoots and that the true moose has been extinct for over 200 years.

Ahhhh...fake moose. That would explain why my sister was once bitten by one.

How do they fake the antlers?

Welp, don't we have someone from Kentucky here?
Can you give us any insider information on this shooting incident?

Brad Ginn told news outlets he and his girlfriend were camping nearby and were awakened about 1 a.m. by a man with his son. The man said they were going to investigate strange noises he kept hearing. Ginn said he heard a gunshot minutes later and the man returned to say Bigfoot had emerged from the woods, so he fired.

Drew, that's my neighborhood, literally.

The Park service put a lid on this story. When questioned they quickly redirected me to their press release/media spokesperson Helen Hunt. "If you want details of the Bigfoot incident you'll need to go to Helen Hunt."


Yet, I did find a few details through local interactions anyway. The guy that fired the gun was not charged. Brad Ginn and his girl were not injured but also confirmed hearing strange sounds/noises that night. The Park officially closed down two camping/day use areas and the Green River ferry immediately after the incident. All areas closed were near the Green River and the location of the supposed Bigfoot incident.
