Harry Trumbore’s drawing (above) of the Himalayan Yeti. I wrote this paper about a decade ago, but just ran across it recently. Considering that Craig Woolheater’s discussion today is “Down Classification Avenue With Sasquatch,” it seemed appropriate to revisit my thoughts on this matter, more specifically, here today. Scientific Names for Bigfoot What is the scientific name for “Bigfoot”? This is a question with a few complex answers. “Bigfoot,” of course, is the post-1958 name for those (seemingly) unknown hairy hominoids found in the Pacific Northwest of the USA with large human-like footprints and an upright stance. With the Canadian [...]
Professor Hex and his nieces visit the Kansas City exhibition. Fantomina reports for work. Goblina studies a unknown hominid. The Crookston Bigfoot longs for the new snow in Maine and gets ready to come home. Also, see the latest from Boing Boing on this subject.
This entry adds more information to the December 3, 2006 initial posting on The Bayer Stone Head. The Bayer Stone Head’s owner, David Chisholm (a military security consultant) shares the following and forwards the photograph of the bottom of the head: The color is brown paint. William Bayer’s uncle painted it brown. The best estimate to its color is the base. The eyes, William’s uncle cracked a marble and glued the halves in for eyes; they fell out some years ago. I surmised that it is glue residue in the sockets. I had the thought of removing it and started [...]
What face stares out from the nearly thirty-pound stone head found in the ground in 1932, in New Paltz, New York? Are the features extremely ape-like or child-like? How does it compare to the Columbia River stone heads discussed in the Sasquatch literature? Does the stone head’s smile remind us of that Tsimishian carved mask’s smile (below) dated to several hundred years ago from British Columbia, and mentioned as relevant to Sasquatch research? Compare them. See for yourself: Click image for full size version Click image for full size version Click image for full size version Click image for full [...]
Ask yourself, is that image you are looking at a blobsquatch or not?
Wisconsin Boys Say They Saw Bigfoot November 15, 2006 (PM release) By WTMJ WAUKESHA COUNTY, WI — Is it Bigfoot or some other mysterious creature? Whatever it is, it seems to be on the move. Last week there was a sighting in Washington County. Now, he’s been spotted in Waukesha County. As Courtney Gerrish explains, the description is the same, a seven-foot tall hairy "monster." David and Dillon were out jumping on the trampoline a week ago Sunday when they saw something scary. "We saw just a hairy monster on the corner of the woods. I saw it leaning on [...]
It is not your imagination. Bigfoot news is all over the map. New sightings and stories are popping up about them. Old cases discussed in recent newspaper items are being published about 1970s’ Illinois reports and Missouri flaps. Exhibition news is coming out of Kansas City, and plans for Jefferson, Texas, Bigfoot museum continues onward. A Skunk Ape is allegedly photographed in Florida, maybe a “chimpanzee” one too (above), and now debates are getting new fire under them. The pot is heating up in Malaysia again. Yowies now come into play too. Then, of course, there’s that Idaho professor friend [...]
Witness denies labeling large animal Bigfoot West Bend, Wisconsin – A 39-year-old Menasha man has found himself in the middle of Washington County “wildman of the wilderness” fever. Steven Krueger doesn’t know where all this Bigfoot talk came from, but he will not be sorry to see it stop. “I hope it just goes away. It’s starting to get irritating,” Krueger said. “I never once said it was a Bigfoot or yeti.” The sheriff’s department report bears that out, only mentioning a creature “approximately 7 feet tall, very black, and very wide.” After some kind of creature startled Krueger early [...]
The following is authored by Linda Godfrey: The Washington County Bigfoot is not a Bigfoot! Much ado about something…but NOT a Bigfoot! Two Milwaukee TV stations, WTMJ ch. 4 and WISN ch. 12, reported Nov. 9 and 10, 2006, that Steven Krueger, a contractor who picks up roadkill for Washington and several other counties in southern Wisconsin, had an encounter with a Bigfoot. After a lengthy phone interview with Krueger on Nov. 10, I found out that he did have a strange experience with an unidentifiable creature, but it was NOT a Bigfoot. From Krueger’s description, the closest I can [...]
What did the deer-grabbing Bigfoot look like? We still don’t know, and the above drawing by Richard Klyver has nothing to do with this Wisconsin report. Please, someone, ask Steven Krueger to describe what he saw, how it moved, how it jumped, and how it carried the deer, for starters! Please. In the wake of the first reports of the Bigfoot that grabbed a deer, the story is getting spun in various Wisconsin media. The following news item, although it does not mention the eyewitness by name, is about this week’s Wisconsin sighting by Steven Krueger, identified below as a [...]
