Undebunking Bigfoot - Permanent Top Post

Best Evidence & Content that Counters Pseudo-Skepticism Regarding the Topic of Sasquatch
Dame Jane Morris Goodall, DBE (born Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall on 3 April 1934) is a British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace Considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, Goodall is best known for her 45-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania. She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and has worked extensively on conservation and animal welfare issues. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Goodall

On Friday, September 27, 2002, during National Public Radio's (NPR) Talk of the Nation: Science Friday with Ira Flatow, Dr. Jane Goodall made a striking comment on her strong beliefs that large "undiscovered" primates, such as the Yeti or Sasquatch, do indeed exist. - Transcript of Dr. Jane Goodall's Comments on NPR Regarding Sasquatch
The mission of this site is to provide content that counters pseudo-skepticism regarding the topic of Bigfoot, or Sasquatch if you rather. Content that provides what we find to be the most impeccable evidence in general will also be posted. On that note, for essential reading on this topic we recommend, "Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science," by Dr. Jeff Meldrum.
Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum is a professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University, where he teaches human anatomy in the health professions programs, evolution, and primate studies. His diverse research interests encompass the evolution of human walking. - http://archive.coasttocoastam.com/guests/1267.html
The book is an extension of an equally highly-recommended documentary by the same name.

Also be sure to check out these excellent documentaries by National Geographic and the History Channel. These three programs have a lot of overlapping information, but each has many worthy unique aspects as well.

 

The work of Cliff Barackman from The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization and the television show Finding Bigfoot is also a must on the subject. And last but certainly not least, visit The Relict Hominoid Inquiry of Idaho State University, a journal providing "scholarly peer-reviewed papers exploring and evaluating the possible existence and nature of relict hominoid species around the world." - http://www.isu.edu/rhi/index.shtml

If you'd like to submit a comment or article for us to consider posting, please just let us know and we'll surely publish it if we find it's in line with our stated mission above. We'd love to hear from anybody who has had a Bigfoot sighting in our home state of Pennsylvania. Please also consider sending us an email if you're an investigator in Pennsylvania and might be interested in sharing information or collaborating on some field research projects.

Investigating BRFO Report # 3401


After reading the below report I decided to drive along this road at night with a dash cam running in the hopes of recording another such encounter. This did not happen, but I did realise that the above pictured bigfoot statue is along this very road. Is the statue there because of sightings in the area?

Report # 3401  (Class A) 
Submitted by witness on Monday, November 19, 2001.

Motorist and passenger catch glimpse of humanlike figure crossing the road

(Show Printer-friendly Version)
YEAR: 2001
SEASON: Fall
MONTH: November
DATE: 11/18/2001
STATE: Pennsylvania
COUNTY: Mercer County
LOCATION DETAILS: Lamor connects Rte 18(Hermitage) and Rte 19(Mercer) in Mercer County.
NEAREST TOWN: Hermitage
NEAREST ROAD: Lamor
OBSERVED: I was returning home from a NFL football game that I had attended out of state. It was about 8:45pm. The road I was traveling on had a lot bends with patches of woods on both sides, broken up by houses every so often. It is a back road that connects two towns. The posted speed limit ranges from 10mph to 45mph. I was traveling at about 55-60mph on the straighter sections(I was trying to get home, I had been driving for a couple of hours). This is where it happened. One of my good friends was sitting in the front with me. We had the radio up loud and was singing and staring straight ahead. Two more of my friends where in the back seat talking. As I came around a bend into a straight-a-way, with woods on both sides, something caught my vision just in the edge of the headlights(high beams). I saw the mid and lower torso, and legs of what appeared to be a person. It appeared to be crossing the road. I saw it take a right and then left stride and then it went into the trees on the right side of the road. I vaguely saw the color, it was a light brown. When I first saw the movement I thought it was a person going into the woods, this is the movement it had, however it glided with great speed. It happened so quickly, I thought that I had imagined it until I looked at my friend sitting next to me, he was staring back at me, this made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. I asked him if he "seen that" and he yelled "yeah". I had slowed down to about 40mph with the intent to stop(not really knowing what to do) when the two in the back seat yelled "whats going on?" I said, me and (name of friend) saw something, and the two in the back told me to keep going, they did not want to stop. I now wish I had. stopped.
OTHER WITNESSES: There were 2 witnesses including myself. I was driving and the other witness was looking out the windshield.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: About 8:45pm. It was a cool, clear, and dark night.
ENVIRONMENT: Flat, wooded area heavily populated with wildlife(turkey, rabbits, deer), few houses and farms.
