Bigfoot's First Press Conference

Posted: 04:18 PM ET

I just watched the coming-out party for Bigfoot at a news conference in Palo Alto, California. Bigfoot did not attend. The participants included a publicist; veteran Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi; and the two alleged discoverers of a Bigfoot carcass in the state of Georgia - prison guard Rick Dyer and police officer Matthew Whitton.

Biscardi showed a photo of the tongue and teeth of Bigfoot (as one blog commenter pointed out, Bigfoot obviously practiced awesome dental hygiene!) and an indiscernible photo of another Bigfoot said to be alive and walking away from the camera. That's it. They released a purported DNA result, although it was uncertain if the DNA info was supposed to be compared to other primates (it certainly couldn't be compared to other Bigfoot - or is it Bigfeet?).

Audio quality for the press conference was poor; there was no explanation of why the announcement would be made thousands of miles away from Bigfoot's location (he's in a freezer, somewhere here in the Atlanta area), but there was an assertion that access to Bigfoot would be very selective.

Biscardi, the professional Bigfoot hunter, did most of the talking. He promised to involve credentialed scientists, and dropped the name of Richard Klein, a Stanford University anthropologist. Dr. Klein was conveniently out of town, even though the press conference was held down the block from Stanford. I've left him a message inquiring if he's really involved with this.

The whole affair had a familiar ring to it:

Nearly six years ago, there was a media frenzy around the reports of the first cloned human. "Eve" was born the day after Christmas, fortuitously appearing during a dependably slow news week. Who unveiled that fantastic development? A cultish group called the Raelians, who believe that space aliens created life on earth, and who said a second cloned baby was on the way. But after a barrage of skeptical questions and a refusal by the Raelians to show us the baby or allow outside inspection (citing respect for privacy - not exactly a logical follow-up step if you've just held multiple press conferences), the Raelians disappeared. So did talk of a second baby, and the first baby hasn't been seen to this day.

The Bigfoot hunters, Biscardi, Dyer, and Whitton, certainly aren't cultists. Whitton and Dyer seemed like nice Georgia boys. But they're following a time-honored tradition of hucksterism, for which there's a voracious public appetite.

Okay, boys. Show us the proof. Let the experts establish the proof, and the stage is yours. Otherwise, put a sock in it, and go hide in the woods. Maybe you'll grow into a legend.

digging deeper, the guy who "alleges" to have the dead sasquatch also claimed to have DNA evidence in 2005, and a captured live one, he didn't show up to the press conference. It would be cool, but it is highly unlikely this guy has any credibility.

reference: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=72299
Time will tell if the discovery is real. According to LiveScience.com, on Aug. 19, 2005, Biscardi appeared on the radio show "Coast to Coast with George Noory," claiming his group had captured a Bigfoot a week earlier, a male beast that weighed over 400 pounds and stood eight feet tall.


Ken   August 15th, 2008 4:36 pm ET

How is this not, um, FRAUD? Isn't CNN using it's time and money to cover a fraudulent event, being deliberatly perpetrated by liars? And couldn't CNN, a multi-million-dollar company, sue the heck out of these guys? Even if the suit failed, it would be a teachable moment.


notbuyingit   August 15th, 2008 4:38 pm ET

These guys are con-men. They stood up there and promoted the website with the hats and gave NOTHING in terms of evidence. The excuse of not knowing who to call was stupid – call a scientist who specializes in primates. (I sure Georgia has at least one on the local University.) Better yet, call National Geographic.

Oh, dopey guy, If you find the worlds biggest dimond, call a bank large enough to secure it, get a lawyer, a professional jeweler to see if it really is a diamond.

instead they call a hack with no scientific credential.

The photo of the teeth was funny. It certianly has great oral tooth care for a wild beast.

These guys are either stupid or, again – just con-men. I think the latter, but who knows. The stupid ones are the people who buy their stuff.


William Whatley   August 15th, 2008 4:38 pm ET

I concur with Dykstra...no proof what-so-ever! And why are they "bringing in Russian scientists" when we have plenty of North American experts like Jeff Meldrum or John Mionczynski that know far more about this North American mystery? And...how can a police officer not remember the date that he made such a monumental find? Something stinks and I do not think it is the Sasquatch. Do us a favor CNN and share the photographs and DNA results they provided at the newsconference so we can judge for ourselves.


Thor   August 15th, 2008 4:45 pm ET

Is there or isn't there anything to the DNA "evidence" ? This seems to be crucial to the "reporting" of the news confrence and all the Producer could do was make a joke. If these guys aren't telling the truth, I would hope they'd end up spending some time in jail. PISSED about CNN's half assed coverage in Kansas


Cyrus Clops   August 15th, 2008 5:12 pm ET

Thats the real thing. I saw him driving down I 75 with his family in of all thing a Hummer. They got the real thing in that freezer. I recognize that toothy grin when he stuck his tounge out at me.

Mark   August 15th, 2008 5:12 pm ET

This idiot didn't have to say he was a police officer. Police have to prove themselves everyday and to have an idiot like this to proclaim to be one only hurts the real police.


Davie   August 15th, 2008 5:13 pm ET

I WONDER HOW THE BIGFOOT TASTE'S


Kevin   August 15th, 2008 5:28 pm ET

Bigfoot is alive. I met her in a bar the other night. She was a siz 4 but had the biggest damn feet I ever saw.


chris   August 15th, 2008 5:29 pm ET

If the said Bigfoot, is a real specimen, it should have a better name.

the Wookie, we all know that it would sound alot better when it attacked.

"RUN ITS A WOOKIE!!!! But it looks so cut... AHHH MY ARM!!!"

yeah the Wookiw would alot cooler


Vegas   August 15th, 2008 5:36 pm ET

It's nice to see a light story once in awhile...
Fun on a Friday... always good for the soul...


Sasquatch Mother   August 15th, 2008 5:44 pm ET

CNN covered the press conference, so why not post the pictures that were distributed by Tom Biscardi? Let's go, folks, we want to see them!


Skeptical   August 15th, 2008 5:52 pm ET

I like how the author noticed the similarity between this event and the Clonaid hoax several years back. I was thinking the same thing as I read the article.


J   August 15th, 2008 5:58 pm ET

August Fool Day!!!!
Put up or Shut up. I am interested if there is a bigfoot , but can't CNN do research on this before putting it up???? Wasting time..


Rex   August 15th, 2008 6:15 pm ET

I predict the "corpse" and DNA "evidence" will be stolen or mysteriously destroyed within a month or two.


slapyousilky   August 15th, 2008 6:18 pm ET

I'm not presuming a hoax here. It wasn't too long ago that we that gorillas, pandas or giant squids were mythical creatures. But I do agree they should present more convincing evidence. I just read another cnn article that said a molecular biologist, an anthropologist and a paleontologist are examining the details. Lets stop being ignorant and await the hard facts.


S Callahan   August 15th, 2008 6:19 pm ET

ouch that hurts (feet?)

I agree, what they presented 'should be' real evidence. My gut tells me they are being truthful about a find.....but that doesn't mean it's big foot....where is the physical evidence? I was disappointed it was only a picture and he (Bigfoot hunter) said the picture was very clear and discrptive of his phyical attributes (ear, mouth, teeth) yet everywhere I read it is reported as a grainy picture. As well, The DNA should at least offer something away from the typical gene pool of humans or apes...does it? I thought I heard him say they know there was possum..possibly his meal. More info is needed. Who scrutinizes this(what type of professional)? I think it would have been more forthcoming with a skin sample or actual film evidence with the Professor standing near the 'big foot' professionally examinging the specimen (or species). I'm scratching my head..we'll see...I'm not at the point of disbelieving as all things are possible but there really has to be more offered to the public.


Want to believe   August 15th, 2008 6:29 pm ET

Its time to crap or get off the pot, I am starting to think this is going to drag on..then suddenly somthing is going to happen to the body. Yep, no one will be able to prove it true or faulse and these guys will say it was real and somone just took the body. So it is going to be a scandal. Come on, if I found the body it would not take me no 2 months to tell someone. So who are the other two guys that helped them load the body from the woods, nothing about them has been mentioned. If I was one of those guys that helped I would be telling someone. It is not likely somthing like this would be kept a secret for 2 months. So what if these guys are lawenforcement, did someone forget that lawers lie? so does cops. Untill the body is provided to credited scientist and revealed I think everyone might as well get ready for another big let down. I give up if this is another stunt, can't believe anyone anymore.


Marrque   August 15th, 2008 6:44 pm ET

Yes. I think there needs to be something here. I know the olympics are the biggest thing right now, and Russia is acting up again, but I need another bigfoot claim in my life right now. Threats against Poland, Phelps under scrutiny for being half-dolphin, lyp-synching little girls, little girls pretending to be...uh...not so little girls...the list just goes on and on. Thanks for giving us a breather in this week of perpetual downers.

But seriously. What if we have a legitimate new species on our hands? The olympics are gonna fade away. All of the records broken, China...all of it will disappear from history due to the discovery and confirmation of what "crazies" have believed for the last hundred or so years. Man, I want to be in on that "I told you so" moment (assuming there will be one for them, that is)!!


Silence Dogood   August 15th, 2008 6:54 pm ET

So much for jumping to conclusions. It's quite funny how everyone calls these men frauds and idiots, when the writers have only read other peoples comments. It really does show who the true idiots are. I have known the stories of "Big Foot" all my life, yes I want to believe, but I also strongly believe in science. Give it time for creditable work to be done. As for CNN wasting its time, maybe your wasting your time sitting at a computer or on your blackberry writing non sense for no reason.


lenora   August 15th, 2008 7:20 pm ET

Maybe that was his sister and not bigfoot. People in Georgia are a bit wierd in those woods ya know! I say your right put up or shut up!


William   August 15th, 2008 7:30 pm ET

Dogwood...most here actually watched the CNN web-cast and saw the men themselves actually making the statements...and many here are very aware of the Aug. 19, 2005 Biscardi claims made in the interview with George Noory on “Coast to Coast ". As such, the comments and sarcasm I read are somewhat justified from my point of view. Yes, most here are skeptical, but I think the vast majority ARE willing to wait and see what pans-out. As for Slapyousilky's comment about the molecular biologists, anthropologists and paleontologists...if they are for real... then name them for the sake of credibility...don't just say "Russian scientists" are doing all the research.


Nicholas Vitale   August 15th, 2008 7:44 pm ET

It's too bad that the anoucement was not made after hard scientific proof was established. Weather or not this creature is real or even exists, what I witnessed today was not conclusive or even very interesting.
I guess I should just be thankful that the fish and wildlife dept was not involved because that would be just one more government agency that would be able to cover up any evidence.
The Phoenix Lights, Bigfoot, Aliens etc. I am more than willing to believe that these all exist, but if your going to shove it in my face please provide the proper documentation.


Steve   August 15th, 2008 8:12 pm ET

Don't dismiss reports like this. I have never seen a Bigfoot but there is lots of evidence that they exist. It is like UFO's. I was within 20 feet of one. Therefore, I know they exist.
Early explorers have written stories of a large battle field along the Mississippi where there was nothing but large bones all over the place. But when the Mississippi River changed course during the two earthquakes around 1810 the bones disappeared. Additionally people in Missouri are always digging up big bones on their farms.
When the Spanish were fighting the Aztecs they refer to a group of mercenaries that fought with the Aztecs who were tall enough to knock the Spanish off their horses with their battle axes. The Mexicans discovered a cavern in Mexico while they were building a subway or something like that and in the cavern the were men 8 ft tall all decked out in their battle armor and mumified on Stone slabs.
So do not dismiss these type off report. T heir DNA would be as human as anybody else.


Reggie Dunlop   August 15th, 2008 8:13 pm ET

CNN, rather than flex your sarcasm muscles, how 'bout you flex your journalism muscles and check to see if any legitimate scientists have looked in to this case? Because their are real scientists doing such field work you know - the Big Foot Researchers Field Organization. They have a website and everything. And look what's on it - scads of investigation and analysis of the people involved in Georgia, their mysterious professional Bigfoot hunter, today's press conference, even photos of the costume that these yokels are using in their pathetic attempt to dupe the public.
http://www.bfro.net/hoax.asp
And yet none of your reporters bothered to contact them. Lazy.


Smokestack Barnes   August 15th, 2008 8:37 pm ET

The Good:
1) just maybe this is the real deal....pretty exciting if it is
2) can't think of any other good....humm
The Bad:
1) The "finders" can make money on the junk they're trying to sell from their webpage.
2) Why all the way to Palo Alto rather than Georgia where it was found?
3) Why not wait for real DNA evidence to be returned before saying anything?
4) A reporter shows up at the press conference in a monkey suit asking questions....I thought they were supposed to report the show, not BE the show...but then again reporters are only one step above lawyers anyway so what should one expect.
5) got a few more but you get the idea and my fingers are getting tired.
The Question:
1) and only 1: Being a male whatever it is, just curious how big his ____ is!
2) OK I lied...I've got another. I wonder whether the live ones could be taught either football or basketball skills. Football would obviously be easier, especially on the defensive line....just run forward when the ball moves and bring the guy down with the ball...no tearing his arms out of their sockets though OK? Basketball.....a coach's ultimate dream. Imagine him down low matching up with some of the big men...this dude would OWN the paint and at 7'7" and a wing span like that, the opposing team would be lucky to get ANY points. Look out NBA Finals!
Thats enough Smoke from the Stack today! Everybody......take a lap!


Dee   August 15th, 2008 8:47 pm ET

People is really going to crap on theirselves when they find out that this is not a hoax.Everry body needs to realize there are animals that are just being discovered and new tribes of people nobody believed in. People have an open mind are we the only creatures out there?


pdykstra   August 15th, 2008 8:50 pm ET

To Reggie and Others:
Relax, guys. The "Real Journalism" you want from CNN doesn't come from the drive-through window. This is a blog. It's my instant impressions, and, yes, my opinions, based on what I just saw and what's happened with so many stories like this in the past. If you want quality research based on three minutes in the microwave oven, it doesn't exist. Just like Bigfoot. I promise you that we'll report on what the credentialed scientists find, if and when they actually find something, and we'll report it just as much if this Bigfoot sighting enters the Witness Protection Program just like so many others before it. And if I'm wrong, you all have access to this site to remind me that I've made an ass of myself. Or to apologize if I'm right.

We will report any real research on this. There was none whatsoever in today's press conference, only a couple of law enforcement officers who couldn't produce witnesses, couldn't produce evidence, and couldn't even remember the day that all this happened.

I do live in Georgia, and my personal authority on this is limited to my observation, moments ago, that there are no Bigfeet in my yard. (nor have there been any bones found and confirmed, anywhere, despite comments here that Bigfoot's been sighted in almost every state. If that's true, I'm taking the Rhode Island Bigfoot to dinner, if anyone actually finds him. Or her.)

When for-real scientists weigh in, instead of a guy who has a prior rapsheet for falling for hoaxes, as Biscardi has admitted, we'll report. And you take this info, and everyone else's, and decide.

Thanks for all the thoughtful posts here. I'm even grateful for the folks that have called me an "idiot" for doubting the existence of Bigfoot. If Bigfoot shows up, I surely am, and I will guarantee him plenty of airtime on CNN. To cite one of the most-overused cliches in Television news, only time will tell. Have a nice day.


ET   August 15th, 2008 8:57 pm ET

Real easy to solve this one.

If they say it looks "human" and it's "dead" I suggest the District Attorney send a couple of genuine cops over there and apprehend those good ol boys until they cough up a corpse or spill the beans. Dead humans get investigated in my state.


tg   August 15th, 2008 9:45 pm ET

Anyone that would waste time assuming this might be real, let alone to be definitely real, are surely awaiting your Darwin award, so get cracking! Argue and whine all you like, you're still just flat out dumb people. You disagree? PROVE IT. Don't just tell me you saw or heard a story about someone that saw bigfoot or a UFO space ship (not a UFO, but an actual vehicle from another planet). Kooks, crackpots, loons. Never out of 100's of years of such claims has one person been able to prove otherwise. No one called anyone a loon for questioning the number of gorilla's that might or might not be in the deep Congo, or the size of some squids far down in the deep sea, or the existence of certain types of animals in other lands back in the last few centuries. This is akin to dragons, Nessie and so on. Just a load of nonsense that only a child might dream about being real, or a seriously stupid person. Say what you want about negative people, but it's time to grow up and accept the facts,

Also, in response to people that believe in aliens visiting us, consider this... No one is saying there aren’t intelligent life forms somewhere in the vast space (we don't know, maybe and maybe not, there's no definite "yes"), but claiming “sightings” and "abuductions" is ridiculous, insane and juvinile. You have to realize that the fastest moving matter is light, Nothing can travel faster than it can and it has no mass (or so little that it doesn't qualify as mass).

Even IF something could travel at light speed (thus having no mass), the nearest solar system beyond ours is ten THOUSAND light years away (just for the very _nearest_ one) and that’s IF you can travel at light speed somehow bypassing the laws of physics (sure, let’s assume we don’t fully understand the physics of it, there’s a worm hole or some way to manipulate time and space). So then, apparently we (Earth) are important enough for some aliens to survive thousands of years one-way in flight to see Earth (again, before any technology existed to get their attention to us, that they could somehow “detect”).

Also consider that no life form can live without water, even if they can live without anything else, so they’d have to have a lot of water to survive a several thousand year trip and this would have to be able to travel at that speed. But wait, they aren't creatures of mass, so they probably don't need water, right? So who/what did you see again? Something you couldn't possibly see. Interesting! Consider this; We’re looking at about a ten thousand year one-way trip. So, they’d have to leave before any real civilization existed on this planet and just NOW arrive (if they traveled at the speed of light). So, let’s assume they didn’t need that travel time, didn’t need the resources (fuel, water, a ship), etc., and that they could even be here in an hour... then no matter what, you’re looking at a vehicle or life form that moves so fast that it can’t be mass, so how did you see it, how do they see us? To look at a jet moving at top speed, it would mean an alien would have to sit perfectly still looking at a single object for what would be months just to see it barely move. Perhaps a race of pure energy that has thought, they don't need to be of mass? Sure, so then let’s assume that, too.

Now, consider those “sightings” of UFO’s. A UFO doesn’t mean “alien life form”, it just means UFO. But, let’s assume it’s an alien life form or ship… okay, so people apparently have sighted alien crafts that are able to move at or greater than the speed of light. Yet, people see them hovering or moving across the sky? It would be an instant flash that you couldn't detect (I hater to ruin your lie or insane illusion), you’d NOT be ABLE to SEE an alien or their craft, if it moved at such speed. Then, there are the ramifications of how we appear to them. We and our vehicles would be moving so slowly to them, they wouldn’t even detect movement or that we were a life form (only that we were of some specific material we’re made of (i.e., those “probing sessions” would not be even noticeable, let alone some physical “abduction” activity)).

So, while there might be life forms, or even “intelligent” life forms somewhere out there, I wholly doubt they anyone has or will visit us, or be able to in any reasonable time frame. If the aliens could travel at the speed of light and left today from the nearest solar system out there, assuming it could support life and just happened to be that close, us, our distant relatives and civilization would probably be gone by the time they arrived. I think it’s arrogant to assume any alien with the ability to travel would be interested in us or Billy Bob Ray down in Texas.

You see all of the compelling reasons to see it’s unlikely anyone actually saw anything, account in that people all over are liars, and the insane people, dumb people that believe anything, and just a “if you can’t prove it doesn’t exist, it probably does exist” attitude (sort of like the WMD’s in Iraq attitude), then you could see that there is a rational, sound, intelligent view about why only a complete kook would believe this stuff is likely or does definitely exist. Yes, any of these things COULD be possible, but to assume it is likely or definite is not rational, it’s not educated and it’s not smart. Using logic, it’s not hard to understand why most people make fun of those that do go on to advocate ridiculous theories and they all seem to support conspiracy theories as well (see the previous poster’s claim about the “Air Force” possessing some alternative “zero point” energy for 30 years that would solve the world’s energy problems that they “just won’t release” for some reason.

Not that I doubt there are vested interests in energy nor do I doubt corruption and greed, but this really goes too far with the big foot theory and to have the audacity to call those that don’t share YOUR view as ignorant, and to dismiss the actual logic/reasons why they feel the way they do? I’m afraid the burden of proof is on you, and I’d really like to see evidence, not stories, not theories and not some ludicrous circular logic.

I think it’s completely silly that people are getting on CNN for not taking this seriously and covering it like it’s some life altering story that will change the world. I guess there really are big foot believing crazy’s out there. If such a creature exists, fine, but the fact the media doesn’t agree with you or share your excitement and chance making complete fools out of themselves, which they would if they took this seriously, is short sighted and foolish to assume about them. Total crackpots. I thought it was a funny story in response to some loon’s claim about finding big foot. I can’t believe anyone would take this seriously and argue about it. In conclusion, there's no way in hell that Bigfoot would be caught dead in Georgia.

David Thomas   August 15th, 2008 9:49 pm ET

Many questions that did not get asked during this bigfoot press conference. Such as....Were you scared to be left in the woods alone while your friend went to get more help? Do you have photos of the area where the body was found? Did the other animals that where within 50 ft. of you make any noises? Do you have someone, such as a wife, girfriend,boyfriend...that will stand beside you and validate your credibility?....better yet...Show us the Body!!!!


CriticXtreme::   August 15th, 2008 9:52 pm ET

This bull-ish! The only monsters in the Northern part of Georgia are those in-breeding with each other! As far as there guys and their claims, when you have someone with the title, "Producer" involved, you know there's some shenanigans happening. I smell another horrible new reality show in the making! These guys are America's new new "FAMEWHORES".

I think they, like a lot of media outlets got the story, and they thought it would be fun. It can't always be about some war or disaster, you know. If they agreed or thought it was real, then they'd be a worthless rag, like Fox news. This ai a blog, not a news story.


jackiezac72   August 15th, 2008 9:58 pm ET

these guys do not deserve to be taken seriously until they provide the proof... do not give them anymore press until they actually want to show the specimen. that simple... fuel the fire and you are bound to get burned....

Please also note the area this is under:

Filed under: Animals • Hoaxes • myths • sarcasm

That says it all. I doubt anyone dumb enough to buy into this being remotely legitimate would see themselves for what they are.

If something like this did turn out to be real, it would be interesting, but it wouldn't make anyone that didn't believe it to be stupid or ignorant.

Also, people aren't officially "closed minded" because they don't agree with YOU. Maybe to YOU, but officially, it's common sense and even a small amount of intellect that says this isn't real.

No one said that such a creature couldn't exist or didn't, but simple logic says how incredibly unlikely it is.

As a joke, my wife watches the video of part of the conference and one of the hicks was already back tracking about the youtube video, first saying he had no idea what they were talking about, and then explaining in detail about some "psycho's" making death threats, Sure, why not?

Anyway, I bet this is a jerky ad marketing ploy. Too funny. As for the rest, the people that believe this crap are just embarrassing to the human race. Please, just evolve already. And, as I said earlier, no way in hell would bigfoot be caught dead in Georgia. Cheers!


The Bootylooter   August 15th, 2008 10:01 pm ET

tg – that was awesome. somewhat poetic. good ending.

..."no way in hell that Bigfoot would be caught dead in Georgia."


CHOSENONE   August 15th, 2008 10:02 pm ET

I would rather us talk about more important things, the color of Paris Hilton's hair and the christian right. Beleiving in God is believing in the paranormal, no proof lots of false claims.

God only made animals to serve man so we can eat them.

OK, now I know this is a hoax, I herd MR BS (sorry ) Mr BF Hunter a few years back on Coast To Coast being hammered by host George Nory for hoax about a family of BF's he had under study! Something about the money this guy asked for? I heard one of the Geordia boys on 102.5FM in Tampa Thurs and all he talked about was getting a new Corvette out of this deal(in a few days). Gee are these guys PAID for every interview they give? And how do interviewers get their money back if interviewees lied? Tell you what YOU sit with a dead Bigfoot and his family in the deep dark woods and I'll be back in 9-10hours with help! LOL!
Now if the DNA tests showed nothing in one case, human DNA in the second and Possum in the third... I think some active duty cops should be investigating this whole story!


Liam   August 15th, 2008 10:05 pm ET

It's all about web page hits and advertising.

You know, I say the same thing. Just release it!! Plus, don't they understand the significance of this if it's true?? The fact that they wanna keep it for themselves and show it at their spare time is ludacris, to say the least. Other than that, they're not explorers but advertisers...


tg   August 15th, 2008 10:08 pm ET

CHOSENONE, the existence and argument about God can be easily debated because we're here and we have thought and the ability to debate. Bigfoot, on the other hand, is folklore alone the lines of dragons, Nessie, the tooth fair and Santa. For that matter, for those that argue "anything's possible" (and hey, _anything_ IS *possible*), I would like to bring up the topic of leprechauns, pixie fairies, dragons, elfs, wood nymphs and so on. After all, "anything is possible", so you must be a "negative" attitude-ed "idiot" to not agree with the few kooks that do believe it's "possible". Brilliant logic there.


MarkC   August 15th, 2008 10:11 pm ET

CNN, as well as every other news outlet that covered this "story," should be ashamed of themselves. I guess if I claim to have a baby Loch Ness Monster in my aquarium at home, you'll show up for my news conference too? Oh, wait, I forgot: I'm not a known, proven fraud like these guys. So that makes me less credible.

You people are pathetic - as bad as these frauds. There's nothing so stupid you won't put it on your web site if you think it'll draw traffic.


tg   August 15th, 2008 10:12 pm ET

Anyone that would even question if this could have been real at any point, from the first mention, to the articles, to the press conference, to the DNA testing and results, is seriously dumb. Honestly, if at any point you thought to yourself that this could be legitimate, you're stupid. For that matter, if a "bigfoot " is ever really found (give me a break), I still think you'd be dumb for actually believing it was likely, that's how far fetched that scenario would be. Just take the story for the humor that it offers, nothing more. Personally, I'm not going to bring up any other examples to point out how dumb people are being about it. Have fun!


Jason   August 15th, 2008 10:12 pm ET

I've been tracking this story ever since it broke.. I even checked out the picture of "bigfoot" from their site. It looks super fake. The hand looks weird in the middle of the shot. IF this is the elusive Bigfoot, why just stuff it in some $200 5cft fridge like that and not at least show it off. I smell a rat in Biscardi.. He has pulled this crap before.

TG your a few sentances away from a full book there. You trying out for CNN?? Their coverage is skewed and they have a love affair with censorship.


Richard   August 15th, 2008 10:12 pm ET

Well, if someone did find a new Hominoid, how would they go about revealing it? I know I'd be worried about a cover up. At least this way scientists will scrutinize the evidence ..IE. DNA analysis.


tg   August 15th, 2008 10:14 pm ET

PS: Who will sue or want to sue anyone? News, media, etc., everyone's in it for the promotion, interest and hits on their sites and advertisers. People would pray for this sort of coverage of any other non news, hoax story. Sales, sales, sales, and there's no law against making fools of blind believers of mythology. I don't see the problem with any of this. Of course, I'm not dumb enough to believe any of it or even "wonder" about it 'maybe' being true, because I know it's not, because I'm not an idiot.

Seacrest OUT!


Richard   August 15th, 2008 10:14 pm ET

It's obvious that these guys are using this to advertise their business. I agree with other posters. If It were real, then they could simply cut off a finger or toe and sent it to CNN in a ice box and say "Get this checked out by whomever you wish, it's from the bigfoot". EVIDENCE will either Prove it or Disprove it. I tend to think that it is FRAUD and they should be sue'd like one of the other people mentioned. They WILL profit by the foolish who believe that these guys have seen and recovered a bigfoot. If it were anything else, it would be considered an illegal confidence game to separate you from your money.


Adam G.   August 15th, 2008 10:14 pm ET

Jason   August 15th, 2008 10:19 pm ET

tg.. How can you prove God exists? There is nothing to prove physically the he ever existed. We have ONLY the bible to prove he is real. Do you understand that the bible is the worlds first greatest murder mystery that is full of folklore and legends and myth? There is no proof that Noah and his wife Joan of Arc had an Arc-ling..Or that Jesus ever existed. I point to the fact that there is zero physical evidence Jesus lived. Surely someone of his stature would have had something kept from his presence.. No crown of thorns, no cross, no artifacts.

As for Santa. Did you ever notice that Satan has the same 5 letters and that they both wear red and have beards. Satan doesn't wear a hat, but Santa does to hide his horns!! Now thats real!

Go Sun Devils!!


scott   August 15th, 2008 10:21 pm ET

the funny thing to me is that there are people buying old coins and art for millions of dollars, if they have a rea bigfoot then it would be worth 10 – 100 million easy. and yet they are selling tickets for $1,000 to go on a big foot hunt???? WTF .

it is obviouse to me that the next chain of events will be

1. they get people to pay for thier hunt
2. they sue people for posting the images that they gave to the reporters
3 the body dissapears mysteriously
4. they try to faid away whith the mony that they can grab up
but
5. people around the country get tired of this type of crap and hold them accountable,

if you have real info , please pass it on , if not ? please go away, this a little bit here a little bit there only adds to the disbelief

poop or get off the pot


Everett   August 15th, 2008 10:22 pm ET

In the most recent report concerning the DNA testing, it was at one point declared to be the blood of a human being. If this is truely the case than perhaps law enforcement should apply a little pressure considering the fact that the laws in this country demand investigation of suspicious events surrounding the death of a human being, despite what they may look like. If the DNA says it's a human being, then that human being is entitled to the same consideration as any other human being on this planet. I think it would be disturbing if law enforcement ingnored the DNA evidence of human blood arising from suspicious circumstances.


Byron Quick   August 15th, 2008 10:23 pm ET

The people questioning CNN's handling of this 'news' don't seem to realize it's the way ALL of the media handle ALL of the news.

I've friends in Iraq and Afghanistan, some of whom have been directly involved in events reported by CNN.

In every single incident, what was reported by CNN had significant differences from what was relayed to me by people who were there. Every single time I've know an eye witness to a 'news' event, there have been significant differences between what they saw and what was reported. Since this is moderated by CNN, it will probably be deemed inappropriate.

A buddy in Afghanistan was on a mortar team involved in an incident reported by CNN: civlilian men, women, and children killed by US forces! True, as far as it went. CNN left out that a member of the slain family was also a member of the Taliban. Apparently not one of the brighter ones either for he set up a rocket launcher in the courtyard of his family's home and fired rockets at the American base. The American base fired back with 120mm mortars which killed him and his family.

Now, just a bit of research in the name of 'fair and balanced' reporting would have noted that doing so, in these circumstances, was 100% in accord with 'international law' and the Geneva Conventions. In fact, the violation of the laws of war in this case was committed by the Taliban.


Hoax   August 15th, 2008 10:24 pm ET

someone should have the police look into this murder. Any real body found of a human would have the police all over it. Even ancient bones found by archaeologist have to be investigated for a crime. Thus, I can only conclude this is a hoax.


Joe Sena   August 15th, 2008 10:25 pm ET

Can someone tell me why, with everything else going on in the world, CNN is making this THE LEAD STORY, let alone reporting it at all?

I mean really, let's say this thing is real...it shouldn't even be on a legitimate news organization's radar until it's a verified, positive discovery.

Gotta go...I think I see the dead rising from their graves...better get a camera...maybe I can qualify for an iReport!

ET   August 15th, 2008 10:33 pm ET

Again, if they are parading around saying they have a dead body in a freezer with human DNA and showing pictures and cashing in, it warrants at least a knock on the door from authorities. I don't care if this guy is a cop or not.

SeenOneInBama   August 15th, 2008 10:33 pm ET

My husband saw one 12 years ago near Billingsley, Alabama. He broke down around 3 am on one of the back county roads and had just passed a house...dogs were barking as he went by and then quieted down. Then about 25-30 yards past, he heard them raising a ruckus again, and thinking they got out of the fence, he looked back.... and there right in the middle of the road was a huge bigfoot looking creature stopped right in the middle of the road, and looking dead at him. There was a street light behind him at the top of the hill, so he could see it pretty well...It scared the willies out of him. Then it just walked to the other side of the road. There's certainly something out there.

i think that there may be possibly a giganto-pithicus sub order species out there , maybe!!! but as a scientist of evolutionary archaeology i would have to say ,,,, ok fine lets see it . give us a close up' and let us examine the remains, and all information on the area of situ and the location with soil samples. thanks steven!


Pete   August 15th, 2008 10:36 pm ET

Ok. I have been reading through all these comments and have decided to take a little time out of all the hoopla to speak up a little. Yeah, that's right i was there and saw the body. I am telling you that everything is real and you will get to see everything in time. Everyone should just take it down a few notches and have some patience. We just didn't know what to do and had to figure out a way to get organized and get our ducks in row. And of course we want to make a buck off of this. who wouldn't.

We actually have a lot more to show, including our new line of hair products and fuzzy slippers. Then we will show the body. Send $5.95 now and we will even throw in a big foot chia pet.

josh   August 15th, 2008 10:38 pm ET

Ok people, its real simple, this is all a lie, a seemingly well perpetrated one all be it. I'll lay it all out for you.
These two gentlemen are from Clayton County, Georgia, a Metro Atlanta county.
1) In Atlanta, there is a major primate research institute associated with Emory University, the Yerkses Institute (given I may have the spelling wrong, didn't bother to look it up). Also, all jokes about Georgia education system aside. There are three very reputable research universities in the state, and honestly they couldn't contact someone in the state to do the initial studies? Come on!

2) The DNA evidence is pointless. There is no pre-existing control to compare it against. Other tests and studies would be much more logical, and actually taking the specimen to a major research university's biology dept. to have instead of playing the media machine.

3) Finally, if it sounds like a fraud it more than likely is a fraud.

3)


John   August 15th, 2008 10:39 pm ET

Well.. why can't there be something like this and why cant there be other pre-historic creatures around too? Maybe on some distant island that has not been discovered yet there are still dinosaurs too or on an island that we have never set foot on.. Could happen.. If even just 1 or 2 survived there may be some, somewhere. I mean think about it they were very LARGE creatures.. all i am saying is that ANYTHING is possible..

Shame on CNN for not doing ANY homework!!

These guys are a sham! They've made several hoax attempts and instead of doing real news research, CNN would rather stoop the the tabloid level of selling trash over factual content. Frankly, it's pathetic that a news organization can't do even the simplest amount of homework before spewing garbage to make money!!

Look on youtube for these jokers, "bigfootpolice" has posted some of their original unedited content for anyone who cares to judge for themselves the source of this ridiculous and false information!

Look for "Bigfoot Tracker – Admission of Hoax" and other related videos, and you will QUICKLY realize the deficiencies of this reporting.

Peace,

karyn   August 15th, 2008 11:04 pm ET

Lets give these boys some time to prove thier story. Look at the crap you are all giving them now. I think if I found a big foot I might just leave him cuz no matter what U all are not going to belive me. I can understand why it would take 2 mo. to tell. Hell i think i would take 2yrs and then still might not tell. I give you boys credit for standing up and if its a hoax well then i"ve been duped. Either way it a great way to start the wkend. I can laugh at myself and the world with the rest of us. But for some unknown reson I beleive them. And i hope that they can make you cruel people eat your words. If it is true these boys are going to be rich. How many millions did the farmer in Montana get for his dino bones? I really hope its true. for a few reasons. I've seen one when I was 15yrs scared the heck out of me. & cuz it would be great to see some good old boys get the glory for a change. instead of some millionare who spent all his life gooffing around the world. Good luck boys hope its true! then we can all turn our heads towards lockness monster again. sorry the world can be so cruel.

Kyle   August 15th, 2008 11:06 pm ET

Though it seems real, because I may be a fool, the fact they don't want to show anyone, is almost convincing enough that it is fake.


BoomerSooner   August 15th, 2008 11:07 pm ET

How about a press release from the county sheriff where these guys live in Northern Georgia? are they credible people? If there was an ounce of credibility in their souls? If so, a local judge could sign an order to take custody of the deep freeze, or at least stir them up enough to find out if they had a freezer full of bear meat or a hoax. I would think the big foot hunters would be better prepared! LOL.
If anything real is ever found, even bones, or a den, it will be someone hunting deer or hiking off the trails in back woods. Seems a Federal Agency would have gotten involved already if these guys were reported to be credible. Federal wildlife laws should be in affect either way. They blew it in my book by the stage show with their internet site on the hats. They could have stood up there behind a credible anthropologist stating he or she had personally examined the said remains. If there is such a true beast, doesn't seem to be bothering people, no attacks on humans, not causing traffic jams!
Well this is just a fun blog but I just retired from the Army Infantry and countless hours and nights spend in deep woods, marshes most people wouldnt dare venture into, Ive never seen, heard, smelled anything other than a fellow soldiers stinky feet at night. If its real, I will wear one of their ball caps! Have fun with this, we need something light in such a stressful time in our history right now, cant fill up the gas tanks, cant go on vacation to yellowstone before it blows up, 3 wars going on, global warming, people running for president that should be in a nursing home LOL, ok that was totally uncalled for! We need a new primate at our local zoo, the chimps are getting boring! Im going to watch Harry and the Hendersons now, have a great night all.

these are hoaxers as usual. that body in the feezer is just a costume with possum guts spread on it. two dumb rednecks trying to get famous. take the body out the freezer, straighten the body out and allow reporter to take photos. show close up clear pictures of the family of bigfoot. these two are just fools wanting fame and fortune and the american media have giving it to them. they have no real evidence at all.

Gee TG, why so negative? I think what is stupid is closed mindedness. Just because you can't comprehend traveling the speed of light, doesn't mean it can't be done. Sounds like you were born in an encyclopedia. There is nothing ignorant about leaving your minds open to this actually being bigfoot. But there is something ignorant in not being open.

I think these men did well with the evidence they provided. I think it is very understandable the time frame in which they came out and told the world of it. If I made a find like this, I would certainly go see an attorney and protect my interest first. I mean, look what happens to the people who win Megabucks or a large lottery. Everyone becomes either their best friend or sues them for a cut of the money. They are very smart to protect themselves first before coming out with their story or actually allowing scientists to look and disect their find. I do agree there is some suspicion in the super clean teeth, but it doesn't sway me that this is not true. I would not feel like an idiot for believing if it turns out to be a hoax, and I would not stop trusting others as others stated in this blog. I simply just hope it is true mostly for the purpose of getting people to open up their minds and stop living in closets. There is a world and universe out there that we have only just begun to find.

Jan Anderson   August 15th, 2008 11:45 pm ET

I have waited eagerly since Wednesday to hear today's Bigfoot press conference, and I had heard about, then saw the pictures that were leaked to the media of the frozen Bigfoot. The Bigfoot looks like it could possibly be the real thing! If this is truely a Bigfoot, this is a huge news story! I watched the CNN Bigfoot press conference on TV until they broke away from it, and hurried to watch the rest of it on cnn.com/live, so I could watch the rest of the entire press conference. The press conference was so dramatic and interesting that it was like a blockbuster movie being played out in real life, and this was the part of the “movie” where there is the big press conference! What an action/adventure they are going through in real life, (if they are not hoaxing it all!) It really is amazing, and I hope that they can get the proof they need to show that the Bigfoot is real, and I hope that they will find, and be able to protect this amazing newly discovered species of ape.


Kathy Igelman   August 15th, 2008 11:46 pm ET

It's about time, Ive been feeding and seeing these things for years. They're as common as wild dogs, whats all the hype about?, Its a north american ape for crying out loud. There is apes everywhere in the world, big deal. I've been seeing these things for years. So what!
I don't get it they're everywhere, now maybe someone can help protect these critters.


Joe   August 15th, 2008 11:49 pm ET

Just watch, within a week the body will have been "stolen." I'm guessing it will happen before the two gentlemen return to Georgia.

kc   August 15th, 2008 11:55 pm ET

I'd say the body will be stolen before it's shown to these experts.

I can't imagine how these GA boys could have presented themselves in a less credible manner. No body, just some guy that has a history of claiming he had found bigfoot. Lame. It seems like a ploy to make some quick money.

Take a look at it psycologically. First if you had just proved "bigfoot" exsisted, you would tell everyone in the world, and walk around with the proof or as a souvenir. I mean your sending this thing away to science, and if it were real, you would never get to touch it again, (kinda like roswell).. Then you got the phrase, "Deep in the woods" I thought he was going to say thats all I know about where we were, just "Deep in the woods" There is only one reason they are dorking us around, because its a hoax. I think all the news sites that paid these guys anything, should sue them to prevent things like this in the future, Sue all three of them for all they are worth, inclueding their cheap camera's, so they cant lie to anyone else.. Sure we all want to believe, but when you look at the poor quality of the events, and take into consideration, what you would have done had you found bigfoot, (probably cut off a toe and made a necklace out of it.) then look at the story they are telling you. Things just dont add up.

And if you still want to believe, then perhaps you should do as I did.
I saved two pictures The one with all three people and the ice chest full of ice, And the one of the "thing" in the ice chest. When you compair the two photos, The one with the ice, has nothing in it except ice. The level of the creature, would be sticking out above the ice, at least the color of the thing would shine through the ice. yet the ice is clear when it should have some dark color to it. Also the expression on the face of the three, they took the time for a photo opp, Because they ran into the bigfoot hunter, As a normal photo op would have been with them and the creature.. So I examined the other photo, of the "thing", and zoomed in on it with irfanview, if you look around the head, you can see where someone used a blur tool when they tried to make it look as if the thing is in the freezer, (if you know photoshop you can clearly see the blur or smudge tool was used), and they didnt do a good job, it appears like a amature hoaxed the photo.. I mean my son could have done a better job at not making it look like it was photoshopped.. Poor quality, I am suprised that this story made it to cnn... But I guess with the lack of stories around lately, why not for a little publicity.. I just feel sorry for everyone who has been scammed by these guys, heck they were probably the ones who were fooled by the international funds scam thats been going around the last few years..

Enjoy,
Peace!

Hey,I'm a hunter.Hunted all my life in northern Washington state. I've looked for any sign of bigfoot, and have never seen one. The monkey on "the horrordome", that's it. Perfect match. Now what are the odds of that happening?

My thought on the problem is, let's bring out him out and have the world look out at him. ENOUGH SAID. The circus in years past, would make money by bringing the corpse out for the world to see for MONEY, so bring it out and make your money. ENOUGH SAID.


gurumagoo   August 16th, 2008 12:10 am ET

This whole business is starting to look fishier and fishier. This just isn't the way that credible people do business. Chances are that a couple of broke guys think they've found a way to make some easy cash, and a bunch of guilable hippis are so blind with hope at the prospect of saying "I told you so" that they let themselves be duped.

Were I to find a "Bigfoot" corpse I think the first thing I would do is establish my ownership over it, and then I would call the National Geographic Society.


k-dog   August 16th, 2008 12:10 am ET

i hate those guys.... they killed my best friend. i mean me and bigfoot go way back. i remmember i was at a old cabin with a couple of buddies and we heard this noise and i sall him it was like we clicked. so we chilled out all summer went to movies, went to bars , and pulled pranks. but then we sepirated he stared booking gigs in comirchials and movies so i tried to call him but his wife answeredtold me the hole story now i am depresed


Daniel W.Walters   August 16th, 2008 12:14 am ET

Theres no telling what those crazy hillbilly's have in that freezer.I also live in Georgia,and we're alway's coming up with something for a laugh.We're not stupid people.Well,not all of us.We just love to HAVE FUN,and make people laugh.Thats just one of our southern traits.Who knows.Those crazy hillbilly's might just have the last laugh.All the way to the bank.So all you people who think you know everything about everything.Well.If it is a hoax .Don't say negative things about these good ole boy's.Just say to yourself,boy that was a good one right there.And laugh about it till you cry.I promise you,you'll feel alot better.Because after all,that is what this country needs more of.Just good old fashion laughter.So get off your high horses.


t   August 16th, 2008 12:15 am ET

I believe that there are many species in this world yet to be discovered. As global warming has begun to affect our world, I think we will begin to discover more of them. I really hope that our society will not harm big foot and let this species live in peace. I just heard on the interview that their plan is to capture a big foot live. How aweful is that. Just like King Kong. We must destroy all good.


tess   August 16th, 2008 12:21 am ET

Tiger, the costume on http://thehorrordome.com/SasquatchMed.jpg is not "exactly the same".... the facial hair of the costume is not nearly as long as this photo, while the nose is similar, the chest on the costume is bare, this photo shows a chest completely covered in hair. Also, the costume head top looks like a domed hair doo from the 60's, the shape of the top of the head in this picture is not the same shape.

It appears someone who saw a bigfoot somewhere, put this costume together.


karyn   August 16th, 2008 12:23 am ET

I agree with tess. Open your mind tg. it's a short life and who knows what awaits you. Tess is right, just because it hasn't been done doesn't mean it can't. i bet if you told people 100yrs ago that you could call your mom. ( I think you might talk to her often) on this little thing in your back pocket that they would laugh at you too. Yet here we sit with our cell phones. open your minds, take a chance, so what if its a hoax. its fun! there are new animals found every day and some lost. Its a happy sad world. Don't hide from it, live in it. This is the only one we have, enjoy it for a bit. It would be pretty cool if it was real, for a change. It would be nice to have something happy happen in our life time. instead of wars, death, killing, and who rules what. (Ok so the bigfoots dead so i guess theres a little killing in there) ^_^


healthy skeptic   August 16th, 2008 12:49 am ET

The best photo of it is in a freezer? Come on!! They would surely have laid it out on a table or the ground and got much better photos. If this were real, we'd be seeing dozens of photos from all angles and up close. They would have video of the find, the area around, moving the body etc.

This has the marks of hucksterism all over it. I'd be happy to be proved wrong.

If I had to make a prognostication, I'd agree with others above that the plot of this D-rate movie will now move to the next predictable step "the body was stolen!!"


james   August 16th, 2008 12:58 am ET

lg- wow you seem to have life and all it's mysteries completely worked out. You must be highly intelligent or have a level of common sense that nobody else has. Thanks for all of your wonderful OPINIONS, but consider the fact that not only is there no proof of UFO's, bigfoot, etc, but there is no proof that there isn't!!! Imagine all of the things that the human race KNEW was fact hundreds and thousands of years ago that we now know to be false. What do we KNOW today? We are infants in this universe, and to say that this isn't possible or that isn't possible is LUDICROUS. The universe is continuously surprising us and it will continue to do so. If for some reason this bigfoot thing is real, all the skeptics will be blown out of the water, not to mention modern science. Don't pretend that you know so much because you don't.


William   August 16th, 2008 1:10 am ET

3rd biggest hoax since the war on terror?


Brandi   August 16th, 2008 1:15 am ET

Bigfoot, UFO's, and other paranormal observations have been made and reported for hundreds of years. Scientist (and others) have become arrogant and egotistical to the point of convincing people that "they did not see what they plainly saw". This of course is NOT SCIENCE and is closer to an intellectual dictatorship which keeps people in the dark.


Little Hawk   August 16th, 2008 1:24 am ET

The Crow Indians call him Bogs. Sasquatch stories have been around for centuries. They are an elusive creature but do not discount this discovery. They are real.


michael   August 16th, 2008 1:32 am ET

I think this is finally going to be the real deal...These guys seem trustworthy. Also, I live in N. Ga. near the sighting....The Ga.woods/mountains would be a perfect climate for these creatures....It's like living in 'jungle' mountains.


herb   August 16th, 2008 1:33 am ET

bigfoots mom, lets grab the kids and go too the circus and ride unicycles.


HFS   August 16th, 2008 1:46 am ET

Um, this could be a human corpse.

If someone said "I found a dead gnome!" and refused to turn over the body, imagine what would happen if that "gnome" turned out to be a human being with dwarfism and severe facial injuries.

How about a weird frat hazing involving Bigfoot costumes that went horribly, horribly wrong?

The DNA came back as human. CALL THE COPS.


barry kelliher   August 16th, 2008 1:58 am ET

"Big foot" does not live in any forest here in this country, or any forest in any country in the whole world. Bigfoot is a race of aliens that come too our planet to study certain things that are found in the forest. They are beings that are seen, but never found. The transportation that they use is allways seen, but never found. These creatures do not live on this planet. they travel from there home planet to ours for study and examination of our planet .
Well now it seems that one of em has passed away while out (away from the group)collecting some type of rare organizm. He must of got stung by one of those "killer type Bees", and had a severe allergic reaction To the powerful sting.....and he died.
Before his buddies could locate there lost friend', to bring him back to the shuttle( parked just over the hill), those two hikers found thim first, and now you now know as much as I do.
The world will not only be uncovering a secret creature that has been a global mystery for so long, but also uncover a even bigger mystery....that aliens are here and have been for a log time!

I got a smile on my face,
beantownbarry


Linda Perry   August 16th, 2008 2:02 am ET

I write a column on Bigfoot and I believe it is just a matter of time before the animal is found. And maybe it has happened. If these two have "found" a Bigfoot body, they should be paid and paid well for the discovery. It is such a shame that the whole story screams "something is wrong here!" I hope it's the real thing.


Bret   August 16th, 2008 2:24 am ET

Tomorrow, I'm calling for a press conference on a UFO discovery that crashed about 2 miles from my home in a remote deserted area. Watch me make millions!


Tom in Greeley   August 16th, 2008 2:30 am ET

TG, as to your statement before about UFO's not being alien craft from another planet, because the trip would take too long. Any civilizaton capable of building such a craft would HAVE to be far more advanced then us. They would proberly have found a way to break the speed of light. As to the speed of light being the fastest anything can travel, you are wrong there. There are quantum particles called Tacyons which can not go SLOWER then the speed of light. One more thing about UFO's, Last month former Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell admited the fact that our government has been in contact with aliens for 50 some years.

Bigfoot has been seen in many states of this country. Not all those people are liars or fools. I am NOT saying that the body found in Georgia is really a bigfoot, it proberly is not. The fact that you have never seen one does not mean they can not exist. You need to keep an open mind.


David   August 16th, 2008 2:42 am ET

Ahh... More fine reporting from CNN. sheesh....


tim   August 16th, 2008 3:09 am ET

how did they get a comotose body to bend into a freezer like that? Has anyone ever seen how a body freezes in the position it was in at time of death? This is Bull Crap!!!!!


herb   August 16th, 2008 3:12 am ET

Black_Hand   August 16th, 2008 3:42 am ET

Will some well meaning journalist in the interest of the public honour sue the hell out of these idiots for perpetuating a fraud? Either they come up with something credible or admit it a big hoax. And if it is a hoax then they should pay. Otherwise all hoaxes are legit.


Doug   August 16th, 2008 4:07 am ET

Pretty wild stuff, I hope it's true for them boy's sake. I don't think I could get on tv and talk about that if it wasn't. My younger brother one night saw a ufo while driving back from his girl friends house who lived way out in the country. This was back in the mid 70's , he walked in the house and our mom and some of her friends were playing cards. She looked up at him and said Marty you are white as a sheet!! what's wrong?? He then told her what he saw. Said it was oval shaped and full of colors like a lava lamp and followed him back to town and kept up with him no matter how fast he drove. I then walked up to my brother and said ," Are you sure it wasn't your dome light you was seeing?" He then about slugged me.


Ron   August 16th, 2008 4:27 am ET

I think all of you skeptics are going to have egg on your faces. The Patterson footage has been scrutinized for 40 years, recent information on that film with new technology proves that is a real animal. The name bigfoot,bigfeet whatever will soon be changed to The North American Great Ape.


phabs   August 16th, 2008 4:57 am ET

So, why not? They just found a bunch of gorillas in Africa, and never found a dead bear in N America.
It all could be true, and if not, well, those guys better move a long way away, because they will just be absolutely hated...and unemployable.
I hope it's true, just because in this day and age we could use something like that.
But they should have shown proof now, if they have it, not wait till monday.
Hey, if it is true...could you imagine?


Bob   August 16th, 2008 6:49 am ET

Being that this discovery was allegedly made in north Georgia, "Deliverance" country, the creature may be the
result of Ned Beatty's "unnatural" encounter with the local
Bubbas.


Buzz   August 16th, 2008 7:18 am ET

I remember reading when this hoopla started that they were supposedly getting a biologist, an anthropologist and a paleontologist to examine the evidence. ....Why a paleontologist? Is the dead bigfoot a fossil that's over 10,000 years old? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that what paleontologists do...study life remains from the distant past....


sr   August 16th, 2008 7:31 am ET

dang tg,take a pill dude.if it bothers you that much that we are idiots and you aren't...think of the time you spent responding to the uneducated masses.
whether you believe in this(or nessie or aliens,etc etc etc) or not.everybody likes a mystery.and this is sure a lot more interesting then any of those horrible "reality " shows.take life a little less serious,relax.


Dr. Brad Hopkins   August 16th, 2008 8:15 am ET

As we debate whether this is real or not....

Thugs from Weyerhauser and Georgia Pacific are stealing the body.

Think about it? If "Big Foot" is Real they will never cut down another tree in "Big Foots" new protected habitat, which surely covers vast amounts of land in the Pacific Northwest and apparently Georgia.


vmoore   August 16th, 2008 8:39 am ET

I am waiting for more defined facts from recognized scientific experts, if any ever examine the alleged remains. However, if this turns out to be a hoax, I would hope to see the people involved get prosecuted to the fullest extent, even if the charges are made up. What is good for the goose, is good for the gander. If these people are hoaxsters, they should be fine with going to prison on imaginary charges.


DocRabbit   August 16th, 2008 8:42 am ET

After close examination of the New Head shot showing the teeth and tongue, I did a little graphic investigation and found that the tooth structure, very grainy and purposefully toned down, bears almost the exact same curvature as a set off Billy Bob Full Grill teeth. A wild animal would have a tough time surviving with the teeth shown in the photo, and there would and should be obvious wear on the underside of the teeth from the angle they are shown protruding versus the angle of the jawline of the supposed beast.


Julie   August 16th, 2008 8:58 am ET

In 1988 when dad and I went to Yellowstone Park. We had a small lunch on one of the grills. all of a sudden we felt terrified. Something big was watching us from the trees. I heard a chuffing grunt sound very close. We left and told the rangers who did not believe us.

What ever it was it wasn't a bear this thing was big. When we returned to the site the food on the grill was gone and the rangers told us there was no bear activity in the area.

PP   August 16th, 2008 9:00 am ET

I know its a Hoax because my specimen doesn't look anything like that!


Julie   August 16th, 2008 9:02 am ET

for those of who do not believe fine i know what we felt and what I heard something was there what I don't know. I suggest for all those who don't believe go out and do the field work your self get out of your confort zone of go look for your self the way the experts do. They go into chigger infected areas looking collecting evidence

I would like the disbelievers do this. Wouldn't that be a sight


Bio-Guy   August 16th, 2008 9:34 am ET

I have always kept an open mind about this & would like to think, 'yeah it's out there'. I just wish Cleatus & Bubba who found the cadaver would be more forthcoming with the actual evidence. Does finding the 'genuine article' buy you arrogance, yes to soem degree but enough of this media circus show us the real evidence boyz!!!! Otherwise I think it's just a pair of in-bred mountain hicks yanking our chain!!!!


Stan Lee   August 16th, 2008 9:40 am ET

Another arena to keep the public mis informed about the real issues at hand?
It is called control of the masses
When are the people going to take over the media so the real news is displayed?
Evidently something was found, made or calaborated, get the media frenzy out of the picture and you will find the facts


Shelby   August 16th, 2008 9:52 am ET

Either this a very well done hoax OR these guys dont want just any people to veiw this.They may only want to people to veiw the thing if they may buy it. Untill then the men may want to keep it in good condition so when they do do sell it, they get good money for it. So, this will either be one of the most famous hoax in history, of it will be one of the most famous discoveries in history. I just hope this is for real. I hope this is at least some type of new animal that we have yet do discover. If this isnt real then.... these guys need to find something better to do with thier time.They've gotten us all excited so i hope they don't dissapiont us.


Dean from Canada   August 16th, 2008 9:57 am ET

Having been fascinated with Bigfoot like a lot of others I have always secretly wish SOMEBODY would find it. Now this whole thing has certainly got the guys some attention there's no doubt about that. BUT this is like the 21st Century when photo enhancement, cropping, cutting, pasting anything can be done to create an optical illusion. I suspect the body will be stolen or SOMETHINGS bound to happen which won't provide the world with anymore evidence. Their just TOO vauge about everything I mean a Cop & a Correctional Officer from Georgia, they would at least have a high school diploma you'd thingk& be able to articulate a little better than going on some baboon administered website flexing their arms & fudging a Doctor with thier brother. Great start if ya wanna be taken serious boys!!! I've give ye'all credit you have had me watching CNN more in the past 2 days than I have since 9-11. Wish they would provide other witnesses that have seen the body. I'm sure an Uncle-daddy or a Cousin-bro or a Grandaddy-daddy can come forward & vouch for them. If this proves to be the real deal I'll be the 1st to apologize for my sarcasm!!!


FezzRulesBelieve   August 16th, 2008 10:03 am ET

Thoughts are annonymous, bigfoot is real, and its out there, its just no one wants to believe it.
If your so sceptic about it then go off and find it yourself, so if your going to complain about it then get off your lazy tutts and find it yourself.
I think it could be real but come one: can there really be a ape that big? seven feet tall? c'mon...
It could be real?
It could be false?
no one knows.....


Alex   August 16th, 2008 10:16 am ET

I knew it was a HOAX!

can someone forward this link to CNN?? thanks


Credibility   August 16th, 2008 10:24 am ET

An honest person would rush to have experts verify the find and then share with the general public. Dragging this out serves no purpose other than to milk the story for personal gain. These guys' history shows this is what they do. The press should be careful not to give these guys free advertising. The initial release is stirring a lot of public interest which does sell advertising space. I guess everyone is going to milk this for what it's worth.

Please, general public, accept these animals are only mythical. There is simply too much technology out there ( sattelite, heat imagery, etc) for these things not to get noticed. Just ask the USA military.


Devin   August 16th, 2008 10:33 am ET

shouldnt it be a crime not to let the government know wee they found the body so scientists can study there habitat and how they act or if their violnent or how the adapted to capture one with out harming it so the can do tests on them or how they react to be in a diffrent habitat or howthey act in the presence of a human or what


joe shlunk   August 16th, 2008 10:34 am ET

I just hope those danged Russians don't kill all the Bigfeets before we can capture some!!


heidi   August 16th, 2008 10:44 am ET

sasquatch,, yeti,, bigfoot, great ape?

how bout Humarilla? If this was found way back in the woods I"m sure that some Hillbilliy agoraphobic got needy for some lovin at some point.
But one question? Does the Sasquatch have sex?


Kwixote   August 16th, 2008 10:45 am ET

Does anyone remember the gorillas on the train scene in "Trading Places?" Something very similar obout the costumes.


Habadoo   August 16th, 2008 10:53 am ET

First of all I would like to ask all folks reading this blog how many hours a year you spend in the wilderness. There are many creatures large and small that you will never see in the woods because they are fearful of the unknown. That being said the largest recognized mammal in North Georgia is the black bear and it's brain is smaller than ours but you don't see them just walking around and hanging out. They are smarter than that as to self preserve. If this North American Great ape is real then imagine how large the brain is and how smart this animal is. There are hundreds of medicinal plants that my ancestors on this continent have used that modern medicine does not recognize. For thousands of years my people have told stories about the "Hairy Man" and that alone makes me a believer. You see in the Indian culture we don't have alterior motives we live for the good of the people. There is no advantage to making up stories about Sasquatch in our culture. I have spent thousands of hours afield and have never saw a bigfoot face to face. I have witnessed a friends video he had while running from a large creature. This creature was chasing a deer and the deer ran past my friend, with cam in hand and then he was pushed to the ground. After falling on the ground his cam fell to the side and continued to catch this giant creature chase down the deer and break it's back. The entire time my friend is a state of frozen panic and thinks he will be next. Then the Creature ripped open the deer and pulled out it's liver and ate the liver. the creature Looked back at my buddy and gently walked away. As far as TG watch what you say about people from a particular place you may have to rely on one of us idiots to help you out one day. I feel that this blog is a good point of laughter from a bunch of desk jockeys that have never spent a minute in the wilderness. Those that believe don't stop believing because of some assjack has not a clue. I would like to address the thought of investigating the two guys from Clayton County. I do recognize the fact that these guys may be doing this for the money. I don't see the injured Clayton County police officer doing this as a hoax for the money becuse he is a hero for taking a bullet from a guy robbing a Krystal resturant. The Corrections Officer is also an upstanding citizen as well. That being said I did notice the "expedition" price is now $1,000 and not $499. I hope these guys do well and the truth be revealed.


Dr. Brad Hopkins   August 16th, 2008 11:25 am ET

I have seen with my own eyes a reat bigfoot. I have a PHD in Botany and spend a lot of time in the woods searching for rare mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest. In the last 20 something years I have had 2 encounters with Sasquatch. The first encounter I was in Oregon, in July of 1993 I was in my tent when I heard something rumaging through my pack. I thought it was a racoon or coyote so I made a lot of noise getting our of my tent in hopes of scaring it away. By the time I got out of my tent whatever it was had gone, but my pack had been dumped and spread around my campsite. The next morning I found several large human like footprints. Of course back then we did not have digital cameras and I had no way of making casts so I essentially forgot the experience. My second encounter I was again in Oregon in Septemer of 2002, I had found a great area to conduct my mushroom research in a very secluded area. This spot was very remote and difficult to reach so I decided to take a nap before I had to hike back. I was awaken from my nap not by a noise but by a feeling of intense fear. I lifted my head and to my suprise I saw Sasquatch no more than 20 feet away just staring at me. I noticed a really musky smell that I will never forget. The stare between us lasted for maybe 20-30 seconds but felt like minutes. Then the creature quickly turned away and with a slow long stride disappeared into the woods. Needless to say I was quite shaken up. I did not even attempt to find footprints, I just hightailed it out of there. I have kept these events to myself in fear of being labeled a "Nut". I am a respected proffesor at a major University and did not want to end up looking the fool as did These guys from Georgia.

If they really have a body then they need to take it to the nearest University before the body is snatched by those who dont want this to become public.


E.Peterson   August 16th, 2008 11:25 am ET

Questions???

Shouldn't the Feds be involved if their is a Law protecting bigfoot?

Claims of It being shot on video In national forest During no hunting season. Were is fish and game for investigation?

Why hasen't a third party been shown the Body from a lagitimate news organization to corfirm the body before the news confrence?

I'm sure some crime has been commited so far We have laws about transfer of exotic animals, Interstate transfer, Health department issues, What if this animal has a virus that could be transmitted to people. Wher are the Governmental Authoraties on this one?

Someone outside of this Group needs to just confirm a Body to Start to either prove or disproveit is real. And not drag this circus act on anymore!!!


LOLgal   August 16th, 2008 11:26 am ET

PLEASE!!! Don't get my hopes up too high. The people that I love won't shut up about this. I'll be patient and wait for the DNA results but this feels like someone is telling me a fairy tale here! What are we, five!?


E.Peterson   August 16th, 2008 11:37 am ET

Next Question??

Do they have a good Taxidermist yet?


Joe   August 16th, 2008 11:40 am ET

If this is real it would have been in every news paper in the world, and it was not, and only a 100 showed up to here about it show you, people just dont care to hear aman talk about it, when he fake people already.


Franko   August 16th, 2008 11:53 am ET

"Uncontacted Indians," he said, "don't say goodbye when they leave."

SassyQuatch contacted humans, or was she self-conscious of her SmellyFeet ?
Spying, how cattle bacame domesticated, to be kosher slaughtered, per Bible.
Not wanting to be domesticated, raped, even if offered Beads and GPS toys.
BigFooted, are not BigFooled, by offers of free, caged, room and board.
Their relatives, the OrangeUtans, are trying to get along, what to result ?


LD   August 16th, 2008 12:05 pm ET

AM I MISSING SOMETHING? DIDN'T ANYONE WONDER WHAT THEY WERE 'BUSINESS PARTNERS' IN?????? I did. C;mon, an injured cop and a corrections officer? They are now "business partners". Hmm, what is their business? Pretty obvious, folks! After 5 minutes of digging on the internet, I found a WHOIS domain search that shows http://www.bigfoottracker.com was registered on June 15th of this year. Isn't that BEFORE these boobs from Georgia said they "found" the body on July 27th? Why would (HOW could) they register a website before they accidentally, shockingly, stumbled upon a bigfoot body in the woods? A few minutes worth of reading on their website, bigfoottracker.com, shows a history of these guys from 2005, finding a footprint at their campsite. Since then, they seem to have become BIG bigfoot hunters, gathering other theories and incidents, although on the press conference video they said they never believed in it before (was he referring to "before" the 2005 footprint?). Now they are selling bigfoot products and offering expeditions into the woods ($499 for 4 days, including one MRE and two power bars per day, but NOT including camping equipment...wow, what a deal...BOOK NOW!!). In 5 minutes, I found out that these idiots are launching their own business, and have no credibility for actually having found a real bigfoot body...Pul-lease CNN, can't you figure that out??????


Dice Man   August 16th, 2008 12:14 pm ET

What a load of crap. Just drop the body off at the Museum of Natural History in NYC and we'll see what's what.

Dr Brad Hopkins looks like you were under the influence of "Shrooms" When you had your encounters...

What next you gonna tell us UFOs are real?


all4freedom   August 16th, 2008 12:39 pm ET

how is it that everyone has a hard time comming to terms that this could be real? there is soooo many things in this world that we do not know that is here and scientists are finding new things every day. we dont know what all lives,walks,or swims here on earth. just because you have not seen it with your own eyes does not mean that it is not real or is not out there. yes i do agree that there are people out there that make things up just to get their 60 sec. of fame, but let them do their tests and study it first before all start cutting them down!! it will all come out in the end. so just shut up sit back and wait.


Pete Levy   August 16th, 2008 12:48 pm ET

I doubt Bigfoot is in Georgia. The hoop snakes killed all of 'em off.


S Callahan   August 16th, 2008 12:58 pm ET

actually LD they said nationally that the find was on (or around ) June10th..not July or on June 15 when their site was formed.
Just the fact of what I heared on CNN live.

Not enough proff yet to be fact


joshua stroud   August 16th, 2008 1:20 pm ET

look the best think for yall to do is leave them alone. They have been here alot longer than we have and have never messed wit nobody so yet them be... my grandmother was tellin me that wen she was little they would come up too the chicken houses to get the dead ones.. they are everywhere .... yea even here in Tallpoosa co.

do you believe in God? if so then all things are possiable with God. im sure that if we did not have dinasaure bones then you would not believe in them, what did they do just fall from the sky? no God created them. if God can create them why could he not create other things? some people are sometimes sooo closed minded its not funny.

I KNOW IF I FOUND A BIGFOOT THERE WOULD BE NO WAITING TO TELL ANY ONE !!!!!!! YOU GUYS ARE RIDICULOUS!!!!


Dr. Brad Hopkins   August 16th, 2008 1:38 pm ET

Mr. Garvin-

Yes I have seen a UFO... I spend a lot of time up in the mountains and it is amazing what you can see. Move out of your parents basement and get a clue to what is going on in our universe.

Just because you haven't seen Big Foot except on Bionic Women reruns doesn't mean its not real.


sweet   August 16th, 2008 1:42 pm ET

the only problem is GOD created us too, and if your a true believer you know noone is perfect!! If your putting faith into two young men that cant tell the same story more than once, than i can see your imperfection on my computer!

The best part is that these two idiots are wearing hats promoting themselves as 'the best trackers in the world' yet their story is that they 'stumbled' upon the body while hiking? Nice tracking ability.

Nothing about this seems even remotely legitimate. I agree, what the heck is CNN doing putting these jokers on the front page?

One pass over those hills with an infrared satellite and we'd see if there are any creatures there. Did you see Patriot Games? Come on people!

These guys are pulling the world's leg.


Judy Combs   August 16th, 2008 4:01 pm ET

I don't understand why people find it so hard to believe that there are Bigfoot out there. I am 55 years old and I remember as a girl of around 12 or 13 we had at least 3 different sightings of a creature that was described to look just like the Bigfoot. We had not heard of Bigfoot at that time. I lived in a very small coal camp town in the mountians of Eastern Kentucky. The Appalancian Mountians. So, I believe........


Jimmer   August 16th, 2008 4:11 pm ET

This joker says that he is a policeman with a sorry excuse for proof? I would think that he would have documented the area like a crime seen, taking pictures of the stuffed manikin in a bear suit, where it lied with different angels and its position. Maybe even having something or someone in the background for a reference to the size of the animal, and why would you just take it home and stuff it in the freezer? First thing would be to call some agency to properly document and protect the carcass. Shoot if it were me I would have called the Inquirer $$$.


Jesse D Gillin   August 16th, 2008 4:20 pm ET

If the bigfoot story is really true it will truely be amazing. They would make one great basketball team....

I see Bigfoots all the time. Have yall ever heard of the NBA?
Shaq is part Bigfoot, part HomoSapian....doesn't take a genious to figure that one out.
Plus Harry and the Hendersons....duh!!! A Bigfoot starred in that one.
I can't believe yall don't believe...i do


Joel McClintock   August 16th, 2008 5:07 pm ET

If it turns out to be true, i wonder how science will link beast and human together? And from a religious aspect finding a link between the two could potentially be damaging to there creditability but in truth if you ask me there both scams.


mendy jester   August 16th, 2008 5:08 pm ET

Give these guys a chance. Think about how many reports there has been about sightings of the so called bigfoot. Are thousands of people insane? Dont be so quick to jump to conclusions. How are you going to feel when it turns out to be true? All of the nay-sayers are extremly christian. Think about it ,if this is really a bigfoot or sasquatch then it could be proof to Charles Darwins Theory of Eveloution. If his theory is proven somewhat true then that throws a big wrench into what has been pounded int our heads all theese years by the bible. Any way make your own conclusion. Just dont be so quick to judge. Give them a chance. It could be one of the greatest finds in a really long time. I say power on guys. If it is fake then oh well. At least it gave everyone something exciting to talk about for a while.


Jcc   August 16th, 2008 5:09 pm ET

Ok, guys and gals my point of view is simple. As a younger man I tromped all over the n. Ga. mountains deer hunting for that special trophy
and scouted deep in the woods and probably covered a lot more ground than these guys. Fact is I have never seen anything suggesting a creature such as bigfoot exist.. I believe, it is possible that it may have at one time like the dinosaur But with human encroachment even the bears come into rural areas often hunting food and even their numbers are dwindling. But If there is such a creature that has eluded humans like bigfoot has for so long he must be a distant relative to Bin Laden!


mendy jester   August 16th, 2008 5:11 pm ET

I agree with brad hopkins.


doopy   August 16th, 2008 5:18 pm ET

These guys found bigfoot ? What a joke !! Any "credible" person finding such an animal would bring it to the scientific community for all to see and to study. This would be a find of great importance to the scientific world. It's obvious these guys have no brains and are out for the publicity and perhaps to make a quick buck at our expense. I'm not falling for their poor sense of humor and there lack of intelligence!!!

heidi   August 16th, 2008 5:35 pm ET

hey bfm,
i've never seen anything in the Constitution that states we have to have a good credit score to voice an opinion!!! Most people here are just having fun. ( me included) I meant no offense but after reading everyone's responses my mind just kept going and going. I'm waiting patiently to hear the final results of the DNA (as well as everyone else i suppose). As to the "Humarilla" remark ,, you ever heard of beastiality? Weirder things have happened!!!!!


r2   August 16th, 2008 5:41 pm ET

ok here is one for everone..... if in fact one of the dna tests showed human dna then wouldnt this go under a crime scene? or shouldnt georgia law enforcement be involved with a possible unknow homicied? at least if some human dna was assoicated with a body then maby there has been a unsolved murder?


Mouse   August 16th, 2008 6:07 pm ET

Hey, what's all the fuss about? Most all of us believe what politicians have to say.


r2   August 16th, 2008 6:10 pm ET

if this guy is law enforcement then when he got word that the dna test came back as human i would think he would be on the phone with the police telling him they have a possible missing persons case or unsolved crime scene. and i would think our policing agencies would by law need to be taken to the site where the "body" was fould and an investigation should be takeing place!! or if these boys say that human d n a was found then the proper authorites should be and have been involved right away , so this guy is in our police force and we trust him with enforcing our laws?


r2   August 16th, 2008 6:15 pm ET

if its real fine but if not then i would want this guy off the police force if he were in my area, what happends if he takes captive a singing gorilla-gram and tryies to charge admission to see a bigfoot when in fact its a singing gorilla-gram or better a trick or treater?


Gary Headrick   August 16th, 2008 6:45 pm ET

The proof will lie in whether or not this discovery is available for examination by accredited scientists. It could be the beginning of a whole new chapter in the story of humans. I fear it is a flash in the pan and will never be available for us to study in the open and truthful context of scientific inquiry.


James   August 16th, 2008 6:52 pm ET

OR WILL THE HOAX SCARE MORE PEOPLE OUT OF THE STATE???

littleoldme   August 16th, 2008 7:09 pm ET

Ho hum, if it was real it would take 30 seconds to electrify the world and instead we get hemming and hawing and roundabout "expert" examinations. It therefore begs the question, what are they afraid of? If it was real they would be millionaires many times over. Alien autopsy anyone?


Jc   August 16th, 2008 7:53 pm ET

This really is fraud, and I hope someone can press charges against these people who are making money selling merchandise fueled by a lie.

And let me ask this... since one of the DNA samples showed up as human, then don't the authorities now have what they need to confiscate what now could be an actual dead human being?

Someone needs to step in and shut the circus down.


Marc   August 16th, 2008 8:18 pm ET

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. There is no need to report this kind of stuff until it has undergone proper analysis and scrutiny by unbiased independent researchers. I know we are in the dog days of summer when this kind of story usually comes up – but with the Olympics, Georgia War, and the other stories we are not in the usual news slow down – other stores should be taking up CNN’s time.


sheldon   August 16th, 2008 8:56 pm ET

sorry i saw the pictures,it still looks more like a chimp,and if the scientist can prove its the real deal congrats men.


John C.   August 16th, 2008 9:01 pm ET

This is garbage. CNN, shame on you for continuing to report on this. As a molecular biologist, I have seen nothing here that would even remotely qualify as evidence. Just more pictures of home-made furry suits (I agree, the teeth are hilarious), and yet more grainy video. They say that the evidence is being scrutinized by a molecular biologist, an anthropologist and a paleontologist......well, let's have some names, university affiliations, previous publications in respected scientific journals. You're being sold snake oil. In the old days, these clowns would have been run out of town.

The Bigfoot costume, (I mean body), will mysteriously "disappear" sometime soon. And these bozos will sell their book for millions. NY Times bestseller! More publicity for these hicks. Talk shows, Maybe a movie deal? And the joke's on us! Shame on you CNN! You have lowered your journalistic standards to the level of World Weekly News. What's up next? Maybee" Scientists Clone Jesus!" We can only hope!

Double D   August 16th, 2008 11:01 pm ET

If I come across the alleged Big Foot creature then I am calling the FBI and/or the US Army to investigate, not contaminating the scene or the beast. Definitely not stuffing it into a... freezer?? Nice work redneck!

This reminds me of the so called "monster" someone claimed to have found on the beach shore, like last month. Or the proclaimed evidence of an "alien" peering thru the dude's window like 2 months ago.

Save your photoshop fakes, website promos, or 500$ bigfoot hunts through the woods for some other suckers, cuz I ain't the one.

Kip Jurus   August 16th, 2008 11:09 pm ET

Hello. It is Saturday August 16th 2008.

I just finished reading the stories, and seeing the images on the reported bigfoot finding.

I am here to point out something to EVERYONE who is watching, reading, and waiting for the outcome of this reported find....Big Foot.

I "caution" each and every one to keep an open mind about this. It is not "probable" that this is a true find, but it is "possible".

We are not everywhere at every moment in time to conclusively state there is no such thing as this possible speceies existing out in the woods. It very well might exist, and the proof can come from this reported find.

Words of the wise...he who laughs first, does not always laugh in the end.

We shall see !

Lion Tamer   August 16th, 2008 11:12 pm ET

I am not surprised.

After years of searching myself along the Metacomet Trail (which runs from Maine to Florida) I, along with my father, have had sightings and found evidence of the presence of Bigfoot, roaming in these parts in all seasons of weather.

We even camped out one night and kept the camp fire going all night to stay warm, because we had no gear, and my father had sprained his ankle on a tree root. It was too close to dusk to chance getting out in the evening, and we were lucky to have a book of matches. There is nothing unusual about this story, except sometime in the middle of the night, a Bigfoot sat down and joined us by the fire. He didn't say much, and we were in no shape to protest or run with my father's sore ankle, so we just sat there together, staying warm by the fire. Of course, we never told anyone, because they would think we were crazy. But now, it seems to be time to tell the story.

I could post on my favorite blogs (squatchwatch, hairymansblog, idolexpose, etc) but I thought it best that I add to this story.

Maybe someone will believe us now.


Bigfoots Mother   August 16th, 2008 11:16 pm ET

Heidi-
Sorry about the credit score remark, my bad. We need to be abit more aware that others who do not have the economic freedom us bigfeet enjoy.
It will eventually come out that the demise of my son bigfoot (rest in peace) will be overdose of the little blue pills you humans call viagra.
He ordered propecia after his girlfriend bigfoot made a remark about his balding ass and neck. They sent erectile drugs instead. You will be finding cattle soon with holes in them... sorry. No wonder why the human race has so many problems.

WHY IS CNN EVEN COVERING THIS STUPIDITY? I JUST UN-BOOKMARKED CNN ON MY WEB BROWSER AND MY FAITH IN AMERICANS JUST DROPPED ANOTHER NOTCH.

CNN COULD BE COVERING STORIES OF REAL SIGNIFICANCE, BUT THEY AREN'T. PARIS HILTON AND BRITNEY SPEARS GET COVERAGE, BUT AS WE ARE ALL PREPARING TO CHOSE A NEW PRESIDENT, WE ARE CONSCIOUSLY BEING DENIED REAL NEWS. CNN DUTIFULLY REPORTS THAT OBAMA DIDN'T WEAR IS AMERICAN FLAG LAPEL PIN, BUT SHIES AWAY FROM REPORTING ON FACTS THAT REFLECT THE CANDIDATES' CHARACTER FLAWS. MCCAIN COMMITS ADULTERY WITH A FILTHY RICH WOMAN, 17 YEAR'S YOUNGER THAN HIM, THEN DIVORCES HIS WIFE BECAUSE SHE WAS DISFIGURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT. BUT DOES HARDLY ANYONE KNOW ABOUT THIS? NO, BECAUSE WE'RE PURPOSEFULLY BEING DISTRACTED BY STUPIDITY, LIKE MULTIPLE STORIES ABOUT BIGFOOT. THIS IS, OF COURSE, ALL PART OF A GREATER PLAN TO KEEP US ALL UNDER- AND MIS-INFORMED. IF WE ALL INSIST ON BEING THIS STUPID, WE DESERVE ANOTHER 8 YEARS OF BUSH.

Bigfoot can't be a new species because he failed his DNA. But maybe these two hoaxters will pass theirs. We can bag'em, take photos, send them to the nearest anthropologist and make a bundle of money.


Patrick   August 17th, 2008 12:06 am ET

It's ridiculous that CNN is still covering story and it's even worse that other than this blog, the stories border on being credulous of the claims. It's almost Sunday. Last Wednesday skeptics found the Bigfoot costume that was used to perpetrate this hoax. You can buy it online for $499.

This hoax isn't even particularly well done. Why oh why did it get national news attention in the first place and even moreso, why does it continue to get that attention?


Michael   August 17th, 2008 12:27 am ET

This just in from Reuters – Bigfoot is Human and Possum:
"One of the two samples of DNA said to prove the existence of the Bigfoot came from a human and the other was 96 percent from an opossum, according to Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota who performed the DNA analysis."
http://www.reuters.com/article/scienceNews/idUSN1544880720080817


chris   August 17th, 2008 12:44 am ET

They're just playing with the public. For some reason, everyone is trying to believe this is real. If it is, that'd be amazing! But I highly doubt it.


OT   August 17th, 2008 3:48 am ET

I captured an alien last week in my back garden! kept it in the fridge. I am sorry to say that I have eaten it a few days ago when I was looking for a snack in the evening, otherwise i could have given dna evidence...
I am willing to give a big press conference however, preferably with film producers attending to bid for my story.

On a more serious note; Isn't this bigfoot thing getting a big too much media coverage without substantial evidence???

BTW my alien tasted like chicken and looked like one too...


scott   August 17th, 2008 4:03 am ET

Come on people half of us here believe in Bigfoot and half of us don't.

We all have to hope these guys will finally give us something to prove that they do have a Bigfoot but i seriously doubt we ever see anything more then we already have.

There is plenty of reasons not to believe these idiots just based on what they have said that contradicted themselves.


Roger   August 17th, 2008 4:40 am ET

So many things don't make sense in this story, such as how they hauled a smelly, decomposing 500 lb carcass several miles through the woods. Try dragging 500 lbs. of dead weight even a hundred feet across level ground! They say this creature had probably been dead about 2 days before they found it. I came upon the carcass of a grizzly bear in Alaska (which was also about 500 lbs) that had been dead about that amount of time, and the stench was overpowering! How could they stand it? In this case, even frozen, when you'd open the freezer, the stench should knock you over. Yet there's no mention of this difficulty.

So many other things don't make sense in their story, like why didn't they immediately contact reputable scientists to examine the carcass as soon as they got it out? Would a police officer, trained to handle evidence, hang on to a real carcass for weeks before getting serious scientists involved? Especially in a discovery of such "importance"?

The threesome with the "Bigfoot carcass" say they have it secured in a safe place, and that scientists will get their hands on it Monday to do an autopsy. Well, I have a prediction: don't be surprised if on Monday they announce that to their shock, despite all their precautions, the body was stolen, so they can't turn over to real scientists after all. Then these would-be sucker-baiters will portray themselves as unfortunate victims of a conspiracy theory, and then will milk that for all its worth.

dan   August 17th, 2008 8:33 am ET

it is absurd hype for cnn to promote this stupid story to its front of the page. cnns headlines are getting steadily more hyperbolic, and less informative. as they treat this reader with less respect, this reader increasingly resorts to other news sources.


T   August 17th, 2008 8:45 am ET

At this point, anyone involved is a liar, why would anyone hide it, and then provide some mystery DNA, and a bogus photo of some teeth and tongue.

Stop the scam, or has the Enquirer called yet?

C'mon. Who cares? People need to stop looking for bigfoot and trying to prove or disprove.
If those two rednecks did find it's corpse, they should have left it be.
If we find it and prove it, doesn't that just take the fun of wondering away?
The whole thing is just silly.


Dr. Brad Hopkins   August 17th, 2008 9:53 am ET

The Carcass has just been stolen by a group of Masonic Scientologists. Xenu ordered the theft in an attempt to cover up their DNA experiments from their secret compound.

mechanicalanimals   August 17th, 2008 1:13 pm ET

why are news agencies wasting our time on this 'news'– oh wait, never mind.
who cares? if its a real bigfoot, we would know by now. anyone with a brain would have known before.
stop wasting time, when there are plenty of legit stories out there. like, HELLO the war? has it ended or are people still getting killed?!?


gary   August 17th, 2008 3:17 pm ET

I think that "Bigfoot" is real and I don't think that is no joke. But at the same time it might be, although there are so many photo's of the Heroic Creature this photo tops it off. The only way to believe this, is to take a trip to Georgia witness it. Could "Bigfoot" really exsist or is this another hokes that is being played, you do the judging.

That they really said these things may or may not be false, but one thing does ring true, scientific methods/thinking will prevail. It seems that this incident will be a good complement to Piltdown man.


Nick   August 17th, 2008 4:19 pm ET

Well, to CNN's credit, my post from, two days ago criticising CNN for covering this stupid story was not censored. I was just as pessimistic that they would pull the post because I brought up the "unmentionable subject," studiously avoided by all the mainstream media, as the reason why we, the American public are being spoon-fed these ridiculous stories. (The reason being that it is a distraction from the real issues of, for example, the character flaws of certain presidential candidate.)

Great for CNN! Now, if only we American voters would wise up and turn their attention to what's really important. Enough with the Britneys, Paris Hiltons, Brangelinas, and all the Jesuses who have manifested on a pizza crust! Once again, allow yourselves to be distracted by corporate media tomfoolery and WE WILL GET EIGHT MORE YEARS OF CORPORATE AND GOVERNMENTALCORRUPTION, LIES AND MEDIOCRITY!

Dtrain   August 17th, 2008 6:29 pm ET

Well i guess that i am the only person that hopes bigfoot happens to be real. I mean wouldent that be cool when you think about it, to have a mythical creature that we all know to be fake actually be real. Well i think it would be exciting


Bigfoots Mother   August 17th, 2008 8:29 pm ET

I do understand how people are looking at all of this a hoax but what people should also consider is that 80 years ago the panda was a myth as was the giant squid. The giant squid was only caught on tape about a year ago.

While I have respect for the United States of America it seems you guys have more than your fair share of red neck idiots. The more I read these comments the more I'm convinced that when one of our idiots cross the southern border that the average intelligence of both countries improves. Most intelligent people would be able to dismiss this hoax and not draw God into the picture.
C'mon. y'all have to grow up and get better educated .

SasQuatch are StealthApes. Able to move back and forth between US and Canada. Despite extreme technology, how is still a mystery. Mexicans, sneaking across, sometimes caught. SasQuatch are smarter than Mexicans.

Simple to solve all this. Start a dragline, from the tip of Alaska. Hand in hand, turn over every log, explore every cave, shake every tree and bush. Sample all DNA, in case of BikiniWaxed the whole body.

Dragon_urAss   August 18th, 2008 4:30 am ET

I hope that several organizations offer to do DNA analysis of the creature, otherwise the US government will try to make it appear to be a fake. The last thing the US wants to recognize is a intelligent species roaming around our planet without our knowledge or understanding. Just as they hide Alien evidence but the USAF in Area-S4 tell them that not only do they have communication with aliens, but we ourselves are genetically created by them.


Georgia Boy   August 18th, 2008 7:23 am ET

Hey Ken, you are not much different from other skeptics I have met in my life. You start screaming HOAX before you know the whole story. Let these fellas tell their story and give them a chance to get their evidence together. People are so resistant to the fact that there ARE things out there that are unexplained. Everyone needs to shut their mouths and give these folks a chance. If its fake, these guys will be punished enough from the likes of Ken.

W.N.C.   August 18th, 2008 9:18 am ET

No doubt Georgia Boy! I remember me and my cuz, and a bunch of our buddies were chillin out up on the Blue Ridge Park Way "Thomas Divide". We were watching a phenoumenon locals call the "The Lights". Anyways we're all sitting there when all of a sudden off to our right we here this God awfullist screeching holler that seem to go on for 9 to10 sec at a time. We stuck around for a few more rounds of this and then peeled the rubber off of my tires. Being the brave men we were at the time we decided to turn around and go up the road to see if maybe we could catch a glimpse of the creature. Needless to say if it had been only me up there I woulda been back down to Cherokee in 2.9sec lol. Well we ride up the road to where we thought the location of the sound was coming from didnt see anything so we rode back down to the pull off, and I'll be damned if we didnt hear it again. This time we got the hell outta there you talk about scared young men this we were! It wasnt until months later when I was serfin the net when I came across bigfoot sounds and as sure gas prices are not coming back down the same goose bumping hair raising screech I experinced with my own ears was what they say is a bigfoot, yetti,sasquatch screech!

sasquatch,, yeti,, bigfoot, great ape?

how bout Humarilla? If this was found way back in the woods I”m sure that some Hillbilliy agoraphobic got needy for some lovin at some point.
But one question? Does the Sasquatch have sex?

This is the most ignorant thing I have come across yet. As I've been reading through these comments Heidi!!!


Dave   August 18th, 2008 11:31 am ET

Does anybody here from Georgia know what area in general this alleged body was supposed to have been found? ie, National Forest or private lands? No need to pinpoint exact location. National Forests are BIG.

Dave


Bobby   August 18th, 2008 11:49 am ET

Not a Hoax???

Then way are they hiding it?

And I am one that believes or at least wants to believe but then things like this start me to even doubt, since they only want to hide behind a few very poor photos that show nothing other then something in a freezer.... true body or costume who knows.

So all they do is muddy the waters with what truely looks like a Scam.

Bobby (PA)


freddurn   August 18th, 2008 11:49 am ET

I knew it might be a hoax when I heard biscardi was charging 1000 bucks to people to join the next expedititon. Pretty sad these 2 idiots lets biscardi take over and ruin any chance of this not being a joke.

To me the thing in the freezer looks EXACTLY like the average good 'ol Georgia boy, so in fact it's not Bigfoot but just a very hairy deceased relative.

Totono   August 18th, 2008 6:49 pm ET

Why is everyone so close minded? And I'm not talking about the existance of Bigfoot or Aliens, there is no solid proof on the existance or non-existance of any. So why are people insulting each other over thinking different than themselves.

Everyone here thinks the next guy is stupid or dumbass or idiot. I know you can write your opinion here, but writing insults does not add to the discussion and does not make you look good, but rather uneducated. Believe it or not there are some blogs aout there where people can discuss things the civilized way.

And about this new, it has up till now circumstantial evidence only. So there is nothing proven, it looks suspicious, then again they are risking a lot by claiming something this "big" if they know it's fake. But then again some people think they can get away with murder and the like. So we'll just wait and see.

One last sugestion, please be more open minded, not about Bigfoot or Yeti or Aliens, but with your fellow Human Beings, don't just go at them with insults if they think different, even if you have proof, show them politely where your proof is and why you think it is right. Practice this also in real life and you can avoid fistfights or road rage too, you don't know who you might end up hurting.


swaphandmedowns   August 18th, 2008 6:53 pm ET

What would you do if you found a real Sasquatch sitting on your back door step?

Would you let it in your home? Call the media and have a DNA test done?

What if I found a Bigfoot and met it face to face?

I think I would like to know more about it! I might ask it to come home with me.

After all, I never heard about a Bigfoot attacking anything. So I would think it might~ be harmless.

But what would I feed it? I think it would enjoy a plate of fresh berries and tall glass of ice water.

I might have to teach it to talk. I would like to communicate with this creature.

Who knows it might be able to talk and is just not saying anything.

There could be more Sasquatchs. Males and females.

Maybe they are human after all.

They just might be a clan of tall hairy humans enjoying the life of camping out.

By far the Sasquatch would not make a very good pet!

Might be a good friend though~


JD Bullmoose   August 18th, 2008 9:45 pm ET

Well I was watching the movie "TREMORS" and noticed that these red necknecks from Georgia are just like the movie. 1st thing they do is find a way to start a business, make money, and become famous. Even the local folks in the town want some of the action. Get ready for the biggest sucker line out there folks. Either the body will be stolen, or the freezer broke down and a bear smelled the stink and ate the remains. One of these 2 lines will be coming up soon. BUT they will have plenty of fizzy pictures and other vedeos to show you and also you can help them hunt down a new bigfoot too. It will cost you is a large down payment on their new house or fishing boat. Get ready suckers it's coming. I know these guys personally....


RoidRanger   August 18th, 2008 10:22 pm ET

While I would agree with Totono's utopian dipiction of how all of us "should" behave – human nature has taught us differently – and perhaps this is a good thing. Most of the great discovereries of our time have come from people who most likely knew they would be ignored, mocked, hurt, or worse...
This behavior should make people who attempt to make false (unproven) claims soely for fame or fortune think twice before doing so.

Besides, I don't these guys mind being the brunt of jokes or slurs – I bet you that they are banking on it. Maybe utopian ideals could and should be applied to the ones making the claim, not to just those that belittle it.

That is why, if it were me, I'd make damn sure the scientific community (maybe, I don't know, a bioligist ) and a lawyer thinks its bigfoot before I claim to have discovered it... I'd still get the fame and fortune too...


Bigfoots Mother   August 18th, 2008 11:29 pm ET

Robert Blust   August 18th, 2008 11:48 pm ET

Ok people, The BIG IF. If the story is true that these guys did find the body of a Real BIGFOOT. I think the big lie is how they really found the body. When you look closely at the Videos and photos (Poor as they are) I think the thing looks like King sized road kill. Maybe one of those guys does know an area where the things run around in the woods and was driving around the area looking for a way to prove it. Only to have the dumb luck or running over and killing one after it runs into the road one dark night. Why the stories? Maybe they don't want to go down in history as the clowns that ran over a Bigfoot. So they tried to come up with a better sounding story to sell to the press and make some money off the ordeal. IF the thing is Real.and Not a Hoax.


Marika   August 19th, 2008 12:27 am ET

Hmm....
Well you know what they say about big-feet :D


Paul   August 19th, 2008 1:34 am ET

"Beholden to report on what our audience is interested in?"

Are you mad?

We call that pandering. Your story got so many hits because no one could believe you bothered to report it, not because it was "what interested them." Paris Hilton on the cover of the New York Times would sell a bagillion copies. So possibly would "President Bush's Colonoscopy Results Leave Doctors Scratching Their Heads." But that doesn't in any way make them newsworthy.

Look. I'm interested in plenty of things that I hope you never deign to report on. Unicorns, unemployed ninjas, and spam recipes top the list. Don't make the error of thinking that what makes money (traffic) makes news.

Here's a news flash for you: news is about credibilty, and when you do this you don't have it.


lockness=fail   August 19th, 2008 1:35 am ET

thanks for stretching the page


bert f.   August 19th, 2008 9:45 am ET

I too am skeptical of this report of finding a bigfoot carcass. Primarily because of a test done to determine how long a carcass of ANY animal would last once an animal dies in the wilderness. A deer carcass was tied to the ground in the forest and a time lapse camera set up to monitor its decay. The carcass was visible for only 6 days after which even the bones were hard to recognize among the leaves and other debris on the ground.
So to claim no one has ever found the carcass of a dead bigfoot is not an valid argument in determining whether or not this creature actually exists. Finding a recognizable carcass is very unlikely even IF bigfoot were to exist.


doubtful   August 19th, 2008 11:33 am ET

if the guys on monsterquest cant find bigfoot i realy doubt these guys did....

Steve T. in NY   August 19th, 2008 2:23 pm ET

Well this is interesting. I had two posts which were intelligent and show that this is a serious subject, even though these guys from from GA are probably hoaxers.

It's far better to have comments left by people who are telling talltales, or are making jokes about this, or just debunking it by spewing out erronious "facts".

So, CNN, how about a real conversation about this? How about interviewing some of the scientists and naturalists that are actually doing the work to prove these animals exist? How about an interview with Jane Goodall, the worlds leading primatologist if she feels that their is cause for these animals existance? You won't because it's better to go tabloid, and hype crap, then it is to do a serious study.

I have a better idea, go out and rent Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, which aired on the History Channel a few years ago. See what it shows, then interview everyone. You will see that this can be a serious subject, and not the exclusive domain of the crazy's, loonies, and metally challenged or ignorant.

I'm sure you'll delete this comment too, but hopefully someone will read it and get what I am saying.


Steve T. in NY   August 19th, 2008 2:39 pm ET

Well Folks, Show's Over.. Nothing to see here.. It's just been announced that this Tom Biscardi guy, was duped by those two idiots from GA. Just released on his website searchingforbigfoot.com

As I stated I knew it was most likely a hoax, but it's still a serious subject that deserves investigation and study, not snickering and jokes.


The Don Collosso   August 19th, 2008 4:17 pm ET

I feel like suing these guys because i led people to think this was real.I trusted the news and my people trusted me.Now this is a decorated officer lying on national television how many other times has he lied.In that case how many other decorated officers have lied in the past for money?


Totono   August 19th, 2008 4:37 pm ET

There, now it's conclusive. They gave the body, the body proves to be rubber and the guys are on the run. Solid proof of this as a hoax.

But still, no reason to insult anyone who believes big foot might exist. This will not be the last story about big foot, for sure.

I'll have to admit bigfoot sounds less probable than extraterrestrials, I mean if he has been seen in most forests in America, why hasn't he been found while making documentaries about deer, bears or moose. Any way, there are also some reports going on about finding an animal thought extinct for millions of years that is living today. So we also have to admit that we can still find a few animals that are not supposed to exist.

So keep your eyes open, your minds open and your cameras (camera phone) nearby just in case.

Rich Schonthal   August 19th, 2008 8:17 pm ET

It's very interesting that people seem to be so interested in Bigfoot. You claim that the Bigfoot story has had more page views than any other story. You also state that CNN is reporting it because that is what the public is interested in. But, aren't you begging the question? You're saying that you're reporting it because the public is interested, and that the public is obviously interested because of all the page hits, but don't you have to first report it before the public can make all the page hits? And further, one could argue that CNN is creating interest in the story just by reporting it, and thereby legitimizing it. Let's be honest, CNN, it's a sensational story made all the more sensational by CNN and other new's outlet's reports. CNN and others should have been so quick, and given as much time and space, to stories about there being no WMDs in Iraq! Thanks for offering the world some more distracting nonsense to waste time with.


tg   August 19th, 2008 9:25 pm ET

Where do you people come up with this stuff? Decorated officer? What? lol If you believed it at all, you're dumb. Fine, say I'm mean and "closed minded" for making an insult, but how else can anyone say it? There ARE dumb people out there. There ARE liars out there and there ARE people out there with mental illness issues. In fact, look at the pictures of the Biscardi character, he actually has physical signs of being mentally ill, which explains his childish fascination and belief in such a creature.

Do any of you kooks realize that accusing people of being "closed minded" to things that "might" exist or "probably do exist" or "definitely exist" is also an insult, yet you get so bent out of shape when people point out the blatant stupidity of those that argue about the existence of such a creature? The fact WE exist as humans and have thoughts and question our existence, is the reason why the existence of God is a valid debate. The existence of bigfoot is not, nor is that of the Loch Ness monster, nor is it sane to debate about the existence of elves and Santa Claus.

Someone mentioned earlier about the existence of God and Jesus and the proof - well, above explains the reason why people believe, simply because we exists and have the ability to, and since there are no answers. Most historians don't question if Jesus existed, but if he was the "son of God" is rightfully debated. Few argue that the man himself existed or didn't die on the cross. Believing in these things is far removed from debating about myths. If one of the most asked questions in history was about Bigfoot creating us, then yes, it would be more valid.

I don't think anyone's ever said that such a creature never existed or couldn't, but it's simply so unlikely that any exist in this day and age, that you'd have to be a serious kook to believe it. Of course, no kook will believe they are not thinking rationally, so they'll argue about how you're just "closed minded". Well, you're a crazy idiot, as evidenced by all of the mentally ill or blatant liars that claimed to have seen "big foot". I don't care what your drunk, mentally challenged redneck uncle told you what he saw, you're a moron for believing it. Just arguing that "anything is possible" is a stupid argument to make to support the existence of such a creature. Where's Paul Bunyan and Blue Ox? Those are tall tales as well as gnomes, gremlins, ghosts, aliens from other words, elves, trolls, dragons and so on.

Ironic and expected that people that claim to have seen bigfoot have also seen UFO's, don't you think? Hey, I know an habitual liar many years ago, that also claimed to have seen bigfoot. He also had a 10th degree blackbelt, was taught guitar by Randy Rhoads, caught a fight so large in a small river that it pulled his whole boat over, he could lift a 500 pound log over his head and so on. Hey, anything's possible, right? After all, you believe God exists, so you should believe this idiot's lies as well, right? Fact is, logic doesn't have to escape you simply because you have religious faith, and that's not a requirement either. Sadly, some people don't see the difference, but even more sad, is the people that actually believe this crap. No one can sue someone for a hoax that you were too damned stupid to know better (yes, that IS actually what it means - that you're STUPID - not because they were great fraudsters that pulled a fantastic lie off).

Now, how many stupid people will actually believe they are stupid? How many will admit that or say to themselves "Wow, I am dumb, I should maybe listen to what people smarter than me say? Oh wait, I don't have to think anymore! I just won the Euro-lottery from some dead African king's son that's in Nigeria of a lottery I never entered!" No way, those idiots will argue with you until the end of time, because no one likes accepting they are an idiot. You can claim it's closed mindedness, claim it's mean, claim you're right and the smart people are wrong, and so on, but the fact is that you're dumb. Finally, people from other countries talking about how stupid Americans are for believing in this story, well, few did and it's just as stupid to claim that ALL Americans believed in this story, or that ALL Americans support that kook Bush and his lie for going to war with Iraq. I don't know of a SINGLE person that ever believed that, nor do I know of a single person that believes in Bigfoot.

There are a lot of arrogant, smug, dumb people out there, and there are a lot of mentally ill, childish, stubborn and educated people out there, usually they are hand in hand. You can not reason with people like that, you likely will never get through, so this is all in vain. Do I think I'm smarter than the people I call idiots? You bet! I'm educated, intelligent and brutally honest. There's no reason to try and appease the morons in the crowd. Now that the facts have been outed, people still want to argue about how closed minded people are for "not agreeing with them". Well, that's not the rule or exception, and you have to come to terms that you're a friggin' moron. I thought this was humorous at first, but then the next day I did see the main article on CNN was about this stupid humor story. I have no idea where to go online for news stories anymore, but I've lost respect for CNN after all of this celebrity gossip crap, and then a story about bigfoot, while the Russia/Georgia conflict was 5 links down.


Jose   August 20th, 2008 2:18 am ET

I'VE SEEN IT! OR HIM RATHER.. THAT'S RIGHT! I'VE JUST SEEN ONE OF THEM THERE BIG FOOTERS IN THE WOODS RIGHT BEHIND MY OUT-HOUSE. THE BIG FELLA WAS ABOUT 8-9 FEET TALL AND HAD HIS ASS STICKEN INSIDE OUR FAMILY OUT-HOUSE AND WAS TAKIN A MAJOR DUMP.

HE PICKED THEM UP, LOOKED THEM OVER WHILE HE MOVED THEM BIG FOOTER BOWELS AND THEN WIPED HIS BIG FOOT ASS WITH ARTICLES ABOUT BRAT PITT AND ANGELIE GOALIE. HE USED MOSTLY THE PEOPLE MAGAZINES TO WIPE HIS BIG HAIRY BUTT WITH THEM AND THEN ROLLED UP SOME NATIONAL ENQUIRERS, PLACED THEM UNDER HIS BIG HAIRY ARM-PITTS, SMILED AND WAIVED AT US AS HE RAN OFF BACK INTO THE WOODS. WE CALLED THE LOCAL UNIVERSITY AND ONE OF THEM THERE SCIENTIFIC TYPES, YOU KNOW, THE KINDA PEOPLE TOM CRUZ IS ALWAYS YAPPIN ABOUT ON OPRAH, CAME BY AND TOOK A SAMPLE OF THE BIG FELLA'S CRAP. HE TESTED IT AT THE UNIVERSITY LAB AND SAID BIGFOOT ATE A SH...TLOAD OF TWINKIES WHICH GAVE HIM THE SQUIRTS. NO WONDER THAT BIGAFOOT CAME RUNIN TOWARDS THE FIRST CRAPPER HE SAW. WHY THAT BIG HAIRY SON OF A BITCH HAD THE RUNS SOMETHIN AWFUL. GOOD THING WE NEVER TOOK THAT OUTHOUSE DOWN AFTER WE GOT INDOOR PLUMBIN. LIKE I ALWAYS SAID, YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN SOMEONE'S GONNA NEED A SERIOUS INTESTINAL CLEANSIN AND WHEN IT HAPPENS YOU SHU DON'T WANT EM STINKIN UP YA HASIENDA. DO YOU KNOW WE PLACED ABOUT A DOZEN OF THOSE SWEET SMELLIN LITTLE PINE TREES WE USE IN THE TRUCK AROUND THAT OUT-HOUSE AND IT STILL STUNK EVEN AFTER A WEEK. THEN WE HAD THEM HEAVY RAINS LAST WEEK AND THE SUCKA OVERFLOWED AND RAN DOWNHILL TO OUR YUPPIE NEIGHBOR'S GARDEN. WHY THEM YUPPIES WAS SO UPSET AND CORNFUSED BY THE STENCH, THEY CALLED IN SOME PEOPLE IN A DARK VAN THAT HAD G-MAN PLATES ON IT AND A BUNCH OF X-FILES LOOKIN SUCKAS CAME OUT WITH THOSE WHITE SPACE SUITS ON SPOONIN UP WEEK OLD BIGFOOTER CRAP SAMPLES AND PLACIN THEM IN LITTLE ICE BOXES. WELL, JUST GOES TO SHOW YA, WHETHER YOUR A HUMAN OR A BIGFOOTER, "WHEN YA GOTTA GO, YA GOTTA GO!'


Wally   August 20th, 2008 12:10 pm ET

Well i gotta tell my encounter with (BIGFOOT) .I was deer hunting in Benton county ,Mississippi one suday morning where i had seen a large buck deer the morning before. As i was walknig in to the woods i walked up on (BIGFOOT) it was sqated down like it was drinking water from the creek down below .I had always heard stories about them (BIGFOOT) ,but i really didnt believe before.But im a firm believer in Bigfoot now it was about 50 yards from me and it just stared at me . I knew there was no way i could out run it .Cause in the little research that i had done.They can run pretty fast. Then it let a scream that i will never forget cause i have never in my life ever heard a scream like that.By the time i got back to my truck it was still in a steady scream and never broke a stride.My truck was about 200 yards from where i was .I waited till later that day and got sum of my friends to go back to that spot and we found very BIG feet prints down by the creek and found sum hair where he had grazed up against a tree .I still have the hair in a ziplock bag ,it still has that old musky smell to it just like it did the day i found it.Me and sum of my friends go out there on the weekends and call them (BIGFOOT) ,sometimes we hear them scream back sometimes they dont. Its a good past time for us .Everybody has their on beliefes and i have mine and i do BELIEVE.Our group started out with only 4 people now its up to10 and still growing.Theres not just 1 there are males and females and you can tell when its mating season .They have a tendency to throw pinecones and other things at you to intimadate you ( scare you away). The name of our group is (BIGFOOT LIVES . COM)

wait a minute...ummm ....wasnt the press and everyone and their dog saying just the same thing about Giant Squid a few decades ago.

Now look at these links:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/07/17/2306182.htm?section=australia

or this one

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/07/070711-squid-picture.html

or here

http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2006/12/22/giantsquid_ani.html

or even here

http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9710/18/fringe.australia.squid/index.html

Can all these sites be wrong, are they all hoaxes too...??

I think everyone needs to keep an open mind to all of Earths mysteries... use the brain you got and like the good ole sponge it is, use it for increasing knowledge, not destroying your brain cells with beer and your local pharmacy drugs. you cant solve all of life's mysteries in a day and being skeptical is one thing, but being close minded is just plain ignorant. Your better than that!!

>why hasn’t he been found while making documentaries about deer, bears or moose.

Duh. It's obvious. Bigfeet don't make TV documentaries.

Hey the pictures aren't the same. The fake looks fake. Where are the pictures of the creature with the tongue out not after they said it was a hoax but before. Do you think they would tell you. You people are crazy. They were getting death threats before the study was done. What do think would happen if they said it was true. US has been about secrets that is the American way

In America? Bigfoot? I don't believe the American version of the Himalayan Yeti exists. Since it is a very interesting subject, knowledgeable people should organize an exhibit in an event center in Denver, Colorado for every one to see.

Article submission is an extremely powerful process and too be honest I am not sure wether i agree with doing it automatically. My current SEO stratergys for article marketing are fairly simple. I outsouce an article to be written by a professional english writer, the article must contain at least 1,200 words and be of extremely high quality. Next i will submit it to the top 20 article websites based on Page Rank and traffic. After submitting the articles i will then do some basic backlinking and bookmarking to make sure they get indexed by the search engine spiders. I find that doing article marketing this way works extremely effective however i suppose that having the software submit less quality articles to the less dominant websites and then submit to the ones manually that you can't use a tool for with your quality article because at the end of the day quality backlinks never hurt anyone.
