Thank you for the kind words Tontar. I'm not always right, but I'm always thoughtful and sincere.

And thank you too The. I've mentioned before (perhaps just to myself, not sure) there's any number of posters here who I never fail to read, and for valid reasons The Shrike has been at the top of that list since the beginning (Saskeptic @ BFF¹).

As for some NEW news, there's this. It's not the only time things like this have occurred either. The public's utter fascination with taking pictures with their (phone) cameras is completely out of control. It's so bad that people post tens of thousands of pics A DAY of just their food. THEIR ******* FOOD! And if I never hear the word "selfie" again I'll be truly fine too.

YET, therein lies ChrisBFRPKY Bigfooters greatest chance for vindication. If everyone's taking pictures of everything everywhere all the time, and they are, shouldn't Bigfoot be showing up somewhere in all those pics, even if just by chance? Potentially the greatest single subject a phone camera could hope to capture, yet NOPE not even ONE CLEAR PIC. They're literally killing mountain goats with a mindless "photo op" curiosity, yet apparently totally missing the many Bigfoot photo ops passing them by as they're chasing that goat.

That's hilarious. A BFF member who knows about photos "enhanced" the photo by literally drawing a mouth on the "face" in the photo.

Taken at a habituation site. The guy who took the photo was taken to a regular "special meeting place". Forget "Finding Bigfoot"... these people are Chillin' With Bigfoot.

The right eye of the subject might actually be two eyes: one sad one looking down and off to the left and one sassy one with clumped mascara on long eyelashes looking right at the camera. The gills, goiter, and John Merrick-like bulging forehead on that thing also make it a bit dubious, but hey, who am I to judge? All I know is that if I encountered such a Guernica-escaped beast eyesballsing me from the bushes, I'd start taking random moonlit photos with my camera, too!

My youngest daughter is 14. She does not like to have her picture taken. Most of the recent pictures we have of her we call "Sasquatch photo's" because they only show a dark, blurry object.

They moved it to the pgf section which requires registration.

They didn't move it to the premium paid section which has strict rules.

As far as I'm concerned the image is open to fair use.

Supposedly it was taken through a window at night.

The 'face' is most likely the photographer's reflection in the glass.

IMO, we are not seeing the face of the photographer. I don't think it's a face at all. Pareidolia creates a face and the bogus "enhancement" refines it.

Really? Is that put forward by the photographer in a post? He alludes to having taken the photo whilst in the brush, fumbling with the camera, in one post. Sounds odd.

You're correct it was taken in the bush.

Its diet has already been established -- based on that one pic.

Is it human flesh? I'm so hoping that it's human flesh.
