I was visiting relatives in Arkansas not long after the Fouke Monster incident. My cousin asked if I'd heard about it. I hadn't, and he told me that it was two goofballs who went out in the woods, got real drunk, clawed each other up, then went back into town and claimed that they'd been attacked by a "monster". What had actually happened was pretty quickly determined, but by that time the story had hit the news services, and the real story was overshadowed by the false story.

Is that pretty much what happened?

Unfortunately there is no such thing as "quickly determined" and beating the news. We have posters that bring up old stories that were proven to be hoaxes and the treat them as new news. All it takes is a story and it needs no collaboration to be held as 'proof' of the existence of one of these creatures.

Without good evidence, without corroborating witnesses that agree, without scientific studies; we do not have anything to support the assertions that Big Foot exists. We have many 'observations', but when one starts reading those on the BFRO web site and start reading the sighting, one see that many people that reported are not even sure of what they saw. Some just report a 'vocalization' - who made them experts? Some are reporting limbs breaking - like limbs never break in the woods. Many are reports of seeing the creature while driving - how fast were they going, how far away, was it day or night and I could go on. Many believers have no standards as what is real and what is fake.
