Linguist Says Tapes Reveal Bigfoot Speaking

In the early 1970s, a group of hunters in the Sierra-Nevada Mountains captured sounds of an alleged encounter with Bigfoot. Now a professor and former Navy crypto-linguist says he has analyzed the strange audio recordings, and claims that they not only are legitimate, but reveal a primitive, grunt-based language. Decide for yourself -- either way, the Sasquatch sounds on the tape are disturbing:

The Bigfoot Blimp

Just one more Bifgoot story y'all, via Reuters:
An Idaho scientist shrugging off skeptical fellow scholars in his quest for evidence of Bigfoot has turned his sights skyward, with plans to float a blimp over the U.S. mountain West in search of the mythic, ape-like creature. Idaho State University has approved the unusual proposal of faculty member Jeffrey Meldrum, an anatomy and anthropology professor ridiculed by some peers for past research of a being whose existence is widely disputed by mainstream science. Now Meldrum is seeking to raise $300,000-plus in private donations to build the remote-controlled dirigible, equip it with a thermal-imaging camera and send it aloft in hopes of catching an aerial glimpse of Bigfoot...

Bigfoot Once Again Spotted In East Texas Woods

The visual evidence, including the new photographs, of the Bigfoot allegedly lurking outside of Dallas is fun, if not necessarily convincing. One wonders why snapping Bigfoot with a camera always results in a blurred, grainy image, even in the era of digital photography. Via KLTV in Texas:

There have been reported sightings of bigfoot in remote East Texas locations, and even near Dallas, and a photographer says he has proof that bigfoot may be closer than we think. The Dallas area photographer, who remains anonymous, was never a bigfoot believer by his own admission.

He shot images in Shelby county of something moving in the woods…something large and hairy watching from the trees. But light and shadow can play tricks. East Texas bigfoot researcher Mike Hall and his team from Texla crypto zoological research examined the images to see if they have merit.

“Some of the shots you can actually make out what looks like a pair of eyes.

When Squatchin’ Goes Wrong: Bigfoot Attacked My Winnebago!

Winnebago warrior and Bigfoot hunter John Reed of Lykens, PA. has filed a report with local police alleging that a Sasquatch broke the windows and lights out on his 1973 Winnebago. Says the police report posted to The Smoking Gun, "Prior to these incidences, the victim related that he saw a bigfoot (sic) in the area." Reed described Bigfoot as "very large, brown in color, and walks somewhat hunched over." Reed is a member of the Lykens Valley Bigfoot Hunters, and if his Facebook profile is any indication, a big fan of the Insane Clown Posse. I'm wondering if he's considered the possibility that the supposed Sasquatch might have just been a particularly disheveled Juggalo. Here's one Juggalo researcher on this competing theory:

Siberia Experiences Spate Of Yeti Sightings

Furry creatures which walk human-style on two legs are being spotted left and right by residents in Siberia, oddly coinciding with the timing of a Bigfoot conference set to take place next month. The Siberian Times reports:

Yetis have been ‘sighted’ recently in three different remote areas in Kemerovo region, according to local reports. Russia is to host a conference and expedition in search of the yeti next month.

One was spotted this month by an unnamed state inspector in the Shorsky National Park, says local government official Sergei Adlyakov. ‘The creature did not look like a bear and quickly disappeared after breaking some branches. Earlier in August, fisherman Vitaly Vershinin saw two creatures near Myski village, according to a local Siberian newspaper. It was reported that several days after this sighting ‘local people saw a strange creature one more time’.

Officials in Kuzbass, Kemerovo region, told of another alleged sighting.’We were sailing in a boat without an engine.

The oddly blurry photo captured may seem a bit sketchy, but make up your own mind about the latest alleged sighting in a remote area of Ontario that could be described as a Bigfoot hot spot. Via Cryptomundo:

Visiting The International Museum Of Cryptozoology

When I have children someday, our weekend afternoon trips will be to the other zoo. Atlas Obscura on your new favorite cultural institution, the Portland, Maine-based Cryptozoology Museum, which offers Bigfoot poop, among other attractions:

Loren Coleman started pursuing unusual, often inexplicable animals in 1960, and has since become one of the world’s foremost experts in the field of cryptozoology. The discipline, as defined by the master himself, “is the study of hidden or unknown animals. Zoological species that, to-date, remain unverified by science, such as Yetis, Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and Sea Serpents, as well as hundreds of other yet-to-be-found animals (cryptids) worldwide. It also encompasses the study of animals of recent discovery, such as the coelacanth, okapi, megamouth shark, giant panda, and mountain gorilla.”

Coleman has amassed an unrivaled collection of specimens, replicas, and artifacts relating to famous and lesser-known cryptids, including the eight-and-a-half foot tall, 300-pound “Crookston Bigfoot,” a life-size coelacanth, P.

Montana Man Struck And Killed While Attempting To Create Bigfoot Sighting

Tamper with the world of legends and pay the price. Via USA Today:

A man who was apparently trying to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwestern Montana was struck by two cars and killed, authorities said. Flathead County officials identified the man as Randy Lee Tenley, 44, of Kalispell.

The man was wearing a military-style “Ghillie suit” consisting of strips of camouflage fabric and was standing in the right-hand lane of a highway south of Kalispell on Sunday night when he was hit by the first car, according to the Montana Highway Patrol. A second car hit the man as he lay in the roadway, authorities said.

“He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting,” trooper Jim Schneider told the Daily Inter Lake newspaper on Monday.
