Bigfoot in Pennsylvania?

Posted October 30, 2007

This sounds like a story best addressed on late-night talk radio, but a Pennsylvania hunter says he got pictures of Bigfoot!

Take a look at the Bigfoot Research Organization and see what you think.

    Definitely a bear with mange. Why would a "bigfoot" be hanging with other bear cubs??

    Looks like me after a hard night of drinking! Yes I do have big feet and a hairy rear.

    Even Photoshop isn't needed if it is a mangy bear, like the PA Wildlife Commission says (and they have captured numerous physical examples to compare with, as opposed to zero sasquatches). Google "mangy bear" to see for yourself.

    I agree with bigUNCfan that there would be post-mortem evidence. There would also be living evidence: shed fur/hair, dung, and possibly discarded parts of food.

    I believe the sasquatch is actually just the bear cub with the legs and tail stretched out using photoshop or a similar program that has either a magic wand or 3-D rendering capabilities. I say this because the sasquatch is exactly where the one cub was, and a conveniently placed man-made object is where the other cub was.

    If I were going to try to pull this off, I'd take two photos: one with the cubs, and one with no animals. Then I'd take the photo with the cubs, crop out all except for the one cub, modify the cub to look like a sasquatch (being sure to include the shadowing in my selection), then super-impose it over the second photo that had no cubs in it.

    If there were real big foots out there, we would have seen dead ones which would have been found in the woods and brought back and tested for DNA, etc and to see if it was a new species.

    The giant squids were known about b/c we found dead ones in nets, etc.

    That is the reason there is not a Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, Yetti, Sasquatch, Boogie Man or any other fabled creatures because they are not there. If they were around, we would have found remains.

    The only place we find new species is in these tucked away corners of the world like the deep deep sea, remote caves, the rain forests, etc. While the American wilderness is remote, it is not akin to these other places. Most of it has been combed over many times even if it is sparsely populated.

    Find me some bigfoot remains and I will start to believe. Otherwise, it is all a big bunch of foolishness.
