Bigfoot Evidence: More Photos From London, Oregon Of The "most significant footprint find in the last 40 years" [Bigfoot Tracks]

More on the tracks found just south of Eugene, Oregon:Bigfoot Evidence: More Photos From London, Oregon Of The "most significant footprint find in the last 40 years" [Bigfoot Tracks]

I have a lot of respect for Thom Powell and I believe Cliff Barackman is sincere, but I just don't quite believe the tracks are the real thing. Good god, have I become jaded? Cynical? It's not that, I surely hope not. Just, well, seems too good to be true. So many damn tracks! Just so ... convenient. On the other hand, it's interesting the tracks are at the water's edge. Bigfoot and water, interesting connection there.

Well, time will tell, obviously.

Bigfoot Lunch Club: London in Oregon

More information has come out about those BF prints seen just south of Eugene. Many bloggers have been posting info; including Sharon Lee, etc. Here's location from Bigfoot Lunch Club: Bigfoot Lunch Club: London in Oregon and Sharon's post.

Still giddy at the thought of Bigfoot so close to home, :)

Should Bigfoot be shot? Hypothetical... - JREF Forum

A JREF thread posing the question: "Should Bigfoot Be Shot?" Many are against shooting a BF, but some are all for it. But the following is disturbing for not only the pro-kill belief, but the "it's okay to "wound" a possible human" stance:
Should Bigfoot be shot? Hypothetical... - JREF Forum:
I'd shoot to cripple, not to kill. Chances are it's a human; no felony charges involved if you don't kill them. And on the (very) off chance that it is the Boss of the Woods, a crippled one still proves the existence of the species.
Then there's this comment from notorious skeptoid (ain't no such thing as a Bigfoot!) "Parnassus":


Anyone who takes a shot at a "bigfoot" should be sent to jail, and have his hunting privileges permanently removed. I'd never hunt with anyone who had some idea that bigfoot was real.
Slightly confusing: he thinks shooting Bigfoot merits jail time (agreed!) yet he wouldn't go hunting with "anyone who had some idea that bigfoot was real."

Bigfoot Evidence: Holy Matt-Moneymaker-on-a-pogo-stick! Over 120 Sequential Bigfoot Prints Found Near Eugene, Oregon!

Two weeks ago, on February 12th, a man named Toby and his friend, who is a hunter, discovered Bigfoot tracks near a tree line south of Eugene, Oregon. According to estimates by Thom Powell, Guy Edwards (BigfootLunchClub.com), and Finding Bigfoot co-host Cliff Barackman, the tracks consists of over 120 prints.

South of Eugene, over 120 footprint tracks were found in a clay-mixed substrate that was a perfect material to capture and record footprints. We believe the tracks were made as recently as Saturday February 11th, although the first few prints were not discovered until Sunday the 12th.
Oh my god so many questions. South of Eugene, how far, where? Is the Toby mentioned Toby Johnson of OSS fame? So many areas within a crow's shout from my house in the small-mediumish city of Eugene that are wooded and perfect habitat for all kinds of beings, including, of course, Sasquatch.

However, and I am loathe to say this, positively loathed, dahlings, but the image of the print shown at Bigfoot Evidence looks too good to be true. (That doesn't mean it isn't true, or that I don't think Bigfoot doesn't exist.) It just looks too damn perfect. But if the prints are of Sasquatch, --- how wonderful.

OCCULT VIEW: Bigfoot Sightings Explained

From OCCULT VIEW, these ponderings on what Bigfoot is. Or, isn't. Sasquatch is probably a "standing bear:"
(Bigfoot Sightings Explained)
Ever see videos of a bear standing up? It looks like Bigfoot, especially if seen in the dark. A bear may walk on two legs if it is curious and wants to get a good look at something.
I've never seen a Bigfoot so couldn't say. I have seen standing bears and I don't think I'd confuse the two, if I should be fortunate enough to see a Sasquatch. Witness narratives about their Bigfoot sightings, well, it seems obvious that they weren't mistaking a standing-walking-on-two-legs bear. The given that some cases are indeed ones of bears going through campground sites in search of food, etc. aside, suggesting that all BF sightings are bears is pretty ridiculous.

The elusive wolverine is cited as further evidence Bigfoot isn't Bigfoot:
Doesn't trying to find a wolverine resemble trying to find a Bigfoot? The difference is researchers have found their wolverines. You’d imagine in the process they’d come across a Bigfoot too, if only by accident. Instead Bigfoot appears to hang around campgrounds so it can be videotaped.
Not if Bigfoot is the intelligent, possibly supernatural (for lack of a better term) being that it appears to be. However, an interesting possibility is offered for Bigfoot:
There may be an outside chance Bigfoot is actually an esoteric entity. History is full of legends and folklore of the Wild Man, of giants and trolls and ogres. These are not physical beings, but creatures of the imagination and hard to see or define: Blurry Beings. Trying to snap the picture of a troll would probably get results similar to our current assembly of Bigfoot photos…fuzzy and indistinct. Are Bigfoot sightings actually troll sightings?
Intriguing, and the idea that Sasquatch is a fairy or elemental has been suggested in the past by others. (see Lisa Shiel: Water Gods: UFOs, Bigfoot, Fairies.) However, trolls and ogres are usually malevolent creatures; this doesn't seem to accurately describe Sasquatch behavior. I'm not sure what the writer means by "...creatures of the imagination." Does he mean the imagination of the witness, or something outside of us, the human witness?

It's true that the data bank of Sasquatch images is full of blobsquatches, but what of the Patterson film? If that is footage of a real Bigfoot, so much for "blurry." "Patty" certainly looks flesh and blood, but as some of the Fortean type BF researchers think, (including myself) Bigfoot could be both. Appearing solid at times, manifesting in ethereal ways other times.

Note: also see my article at Binnall of America: Fairies, Bigfoot and Hauntings.

Bigfoot Evidence: What Happened to the Lake Worth Monster? The Summer of the Goat-Man

The 1969 Lake Worth Monster story has always fascinated me; a classic in the lore of BHM (big hairy monsters). Big Evidence has the following:Bigfoot Evidence: What Happened to the Lake Worth Monster? The Summer of the Goat-Man
Back in 1969, the residents of Ft. Worth, Texas experienced a wave of sightings of a 7 foot tall white Bigfoot type creature which came to be known as the 'Lake Worth Monster, aka the 'Goat-Man'. Described as tall, furry, and covered with scales, (yep, scales), the local newspaper headline read, "Fishy Man-Goat Terrifies Couples Parked at Lake Worth". Some witnesses said that it had the head and hooves of a goat, bringing to mind images of a satyr, a half-man half-goat from Greek mythology. They insisted it also had scales and was an excellent swimmer, often making its retreat by way of Lake Worth to Greer Island, where it was thought to live.

LGF Pages - Texas DNA specialist writes that Sasquatch is a modern human being.

According to a copyright application, rural Texas veterinarian/DNA lab owner, Melba Ketchum, DVM, is coming out with the news that the folklore beast called Sasquatch or Bigfoot is real!!

"Beast?" Sigh. Worse, weirder and more bizarrely, Dr. Ketchum is applying for a patent. Surreal to consider that, if Sasquatch is more human than not, or, even human indeed in some way, that this being can be "patented." Then what? That is a huge question. All this time I thought the NO KILL/NO CAPTURE issue was the only one to be concerned about.
