Is Bigfoot Psychic?

A small faction of the Bigfoot believers community thinks that the mysterious Sasquatch beast is an inter-dimensional psychic.

via ScienceBlogs:

With the appearance of a shaky 24 feet of filmstrip in 1967, Bigfoot stepped into the limelight, out from centuries of Native American myth, unsubstantiated yarns, and mysterious footprints. Ever since this footage — the so-called “Patterson-Gimlin Film” — the Bigfoot has fiercely entertained, spooked, and howled through popular consciousness, becoming as potent an icon of the region as the spotted owl — or grunge music, for that matter.

There are those, however, who take the beast very seriously. They claim that until the Patterson-Gimlin film is satisfactorily debunked, or the hundreds of other sightings they have under their belts reasonably explained, then they’re going to keep conducting the earnest field work that is the backbone of organizations such as the BFRO (Bigfoot Research Organization).

J.W. Burns is accused of having stolen the mask.

Hunting for an elusive sasquatch mask revered by a British Columbia First Nation has been a 16-year journey for James Leon, taking him through London, Boston, New York and Ottawa.

In the end, all it took was a question to the lady sitting next to him at a Vancouver event that led him to his nation’s Sasq’ets mask that vanished 75 years ago.

Leon was at a repatriation event for another First Nations artifact held by the Vancouver Museum when he asked the lady sitting beside him if she knew of the ape-like mask partially covered in bear fur.

“Her eyes lit up and she said ‘We were just looking at that mask the other day.’ And they were gracious enough to go get it for me,” he said with a chuckle.

Noted Bigfoot Hoaxer Rick Dwyer Confesses To (Yet Another) Bigfoot Hoax

A wise man once said “There’s a sucker born every minute.” Chronic hoaxer and flimflam man Rick Dwyer has apparently met most of them. You may recall Dwyer as the guy who was hauling around a supposed Sasquatch body this past winter and charging rubes to take a peek at it, “Minnesota Iceman” style. Apparently he made $60,000 during this last haul, but has had to call it quits because his former promoter was threatening to go public.

Via HuffPost:

In a post to his Facebook page, Dyer wrote a long and rambling confession. “Coming clean about everything is necessary for a new start,” Dyer wrote. “From this moment own (sic), I wlll speak the truth! No more lies, tall tales or wild goose chases to mess with the haters!”

This chapter in Dyer’s ongoing Bigfoot fantasy began in 2012 (some years after a previous Bigfoot hoax in 2008 to which he also confessed), when he claimed to kill an 8-foot-tall Bigfoot-like creature in Texas.

Bigfoot DNA Tester Melba Ketchum Turns to Writing Sasquatch Fantasy Fiction

THUMBNAIL_IMAGESome of you may recall Dr. Melba Ketchum as the veterinarian turned DNA analyst who self-published a paper decoding what was purportedly Sasquatch genetic material. Dr. Ketchum has now turned her attention to writing fiction. In a short post published to her Facebook page, Ketchum describes the book Mystic Forest Wishes (self-published via CreateSpace – get it here.) and what got her interested in writing it:

Via Cryptomundo:

Now for news that some of you will like and I am not sure how others will react. The stress level has been incredible over the last few years, what with all of the lies and attacks that have been leveled against me. I have tried to stick with strictly science throughout this entire ordeal. In all honesty, I know so much more about the Sasquatch people. I have met many habituators also. I have stayed silent on the majority of the field data that I personally know to be true and will continue to do so at this time.

Amazon Comes For ‘Monster Porn’

BigfootBusiness Insider reports that Amazon.com is cracking down on sales of self-published “monster porn” e-books. Apparently titles like “Cum for Bigfoot” has ruffled the feathers (and prurient interests, I bet) of the usual moral guardians.

Excerpt:

Author Virginia Wade’s fiction debut follows a group of women who embark on a week-long camping trip to Mt. Hood National Forest. There, in the shadow of Oregon’s highest mountain, they are kidnapped and sexually assaulted by a mysterious woodland creature. “What the hell is that thing?” asks one protagonist.

“‘It’s f—ing Bigfoot,’ hissed Shelly. ‘He’s real, for f—’s sake.’ Horror filled her eyes. ‘With a huge c—.’”

The book, with the decidedly un-PG title “Cum For Bigfoot,” is just the first of 16 fiction ebooks that Wade (a pen name) has written about the legendary beast sometimes known as Sasquatch, each detailing a series of graphic and often violent sexual encounters between the apelike creature and his female human lovers.

The Oswald Conspiracy

OswaldThe television show In Search Of is a strange little chestnut from my childhood. I knew the show’s host, Leonard Nimoy from his turn as “Spock” in Star Trek repeats, and In Search Of’s focus on unexplained phenomena, missing persons and extraterrestrial encounters was right on target for a kid who already loved Sci-Fi.

I remember being terrified by the “Bigfoot” episode of the show and equally traumatized when the program took its cameras beneath the deep green waters of Loch Ness. But, not all of the show’s subjects were so “out there.” In 1980, their “Lee Harvey Oswald” episode dramatized the circumstances surrounding the assassination of JFK, including key evidence from authors and experts along the way.

The result is an insightful portrait of the self-proclaimed “patsy” that challenges the “lone gunman” contentions of the Warren Report. The centerpiece of the show is a Dallas police dictaphone recording that proves that there were four shots in Dealey Plaza that day in 1963.… Read the rest

Three Oklahoma Men Arrested After Accidental Shooting During Bigfoot Hunt

6a00d8341c51c053ef00e54f1fdda88833-800wiSounds a little Squatchy to me.

Via HuffPo:

The Rogers County, Oklahoma Sheriff’s Department arrested three men after one of them was accidentally shot. Authorities are still searching for the gun used in the shooting.

According to Sheriff Scott Walton, the three men were hunting Bigfoot late Saturday night, when one of them was spooked by what he thought might be the legendary beast and fired his weapon, hitting his friend in the back.

“When you start off with an explanation like that, do you believe anything after that?” Sheriff Walton said.

The men immediately contacted 911 and met emergency responders on a nearby interstate. The wounded man is expected to survive.

Maine Newspaper from 1886 Reports Killing of Sasquatch-like Monster

20-10The Bangor Daily News digs deep into the vaults and returns with a tall tale of a vicious, hairy wild man. Take it with a grain of salt: “Wild Man” stories were part and parcel of the late nineteenth century rural press.

WATERVILLE, Maine — In the same month the Statue of Liberty was dedicated in New York in 1886, a handful of newspapers in New England published stories about a deadly encounter in the Maine woods involving what today likely would be termed “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch.”

The story of the 10-foot-tall “wild man” with 7-foot-long arms and hair growing all over his face and body was reported in broadsheets of the time after first gracing the pages of the Waterville Sentinel, a weekly paper that no longer exists. The Waterville Morning Sentinel was established 18 years later in 1904.

Tales of these seldom-seen, mysterious apelike beasts are found in Maine folklore, according to experts, but they are more prevalent in California, Washington and Oregon tales.

Dr. Melba Ketchum Reveals More Bigfoot Proof

Melba Ketchum’s last batch of Bigfoot evidence received a lukewarm reception, to put it very mildly, and now she’s back with more.

Via Unexplained Mysteries:

The Sasquatch Genome Project has revealed DNA test results along with several new pictures and videos.

Funded by businessman Adrian Erickson, the five-year $500,000 study has sought to find definitive evidence that an unknown species of hominid is stalking the forests of North America.

In a new reveal this week Dr Melba Ketchum and her team have announced long-awaited DNA test results which appear to indicate that Bigfoot is neither human nor ape but a cross between the two.

“We want people to understand this is a serious study,” said Ketchum. “This creature does not follow general rule. What it does do is very different. We think it is human-hybrid. That is our theory.”

The group claims to have documented the behavior of two of the creatures in Kentucky and believes that there are thousands of them all across the United States.
