Even a cursory layman's viewing points out the bad science in the hoax: Look at the chest. Obvious mammary glands, completely covered in hair. No primate on Earth is built that way. Not humans, not gorillas, not chimps, not orangutans. It's a guy in a suit.

Doesn't matter. Bigfoot does not exist, and if it ever did, it has been extinct for quite a while.

The only chance of a wild primate in the US is the skunk ape in Florida. Being the dumping ground for exotic animals I wouldn't be surprised if a truck full of orangutans were released into the wild, by accident or otherwise.

I have played that over and over again. Plus the higher definition makeover of the original film. To me it looks like a man in a gorilla suit. There were a couple frames that looked like the upper suit was not attached to the lower suit. I forget all my observations; but it screamed hoax to me - I wasn't buying.

But there are still many that swear it is the holly grail and we would never convince the otherwise. Of course that salesman selling the deeds for the Brooklyn Bridge has to make a few dollars to keep a roof over his head!

OK, I just sent the carcass via FedEx overnight...you should receive it tomorrow. I can explain the body hair mostly removed...it uh....got removed by an animal before I found it, can't explain the lipstick or plucked eyebrows though. Has me stumped, anyway, make sure the body is cremated after they take the DNA. Thank you.( I pm'd you for where to send the $100,000 to. )

Flap traps and do nothing. Sitting around smugly passing judgment won't get you any more than nothing.

Do us all a favor and go see for your selves.

Why wouldn't you go and see what everyone is mistaken about? You can then come to tell how everyone is hoaxing.

There are just as many sightings in my State as there are in your State. Plus I partially own 650 of virgin forest surrounded by thousands of acres of virgin forest; why should I have to go to another state? They are here according to the people you swear tell the truth (BRFO).

Besides that; you are saying that you can see one at any time. So bring that evidence to this forum and lets settle this.

How to Catch a Bigfoot

Tools needed: Shovel, lots of firewood, a case or so of canned peas.

1. Dig a big deep pit.
2. Create a huge bonfire in the pit. Let it burn out til you have a nice thick layer of ash.
3. Spread a heavy layer of peas over the ashes.
4. Hide close by your Bigfoot trap.


When Bigfoot comes to take a pea, kick him in the Ash Hole!

what are you going to do if the DEAD Bigfoot has Human DNA? Wouldn't that make you an accessory to murder? If Bigfoot actually does exist has any member of that species ever harmed one of us so called Humans? how about just co-existing for a few more centuries?

I have nothing to do with the BFRO. Don't try to put words in my mouth. Prove to us you own 650 acres. Never mentioned before until know. I am not sure that I believe you. Yes there are quite a few in Pa. There are plenty of researchers in Pa. Why don't you invite some to this area around you and see what they say.? Maybe they will show you some sign and you will be right there to tell your opinion.
I have never said I can see one anytime. You lie!

Although it isn't "proof", he has mentioned it before, but it was on a different thread. (1/25/2020), Page 21, Post 201.
