North American Bigfoot sighting creates buzz among cryptozoologists
For all the people who think that bigfoot sightings are just a myth or that there’s no such thing as the yeti, today’s news should be quite an eye-opener.
According to numerous reports and eyewitness accounts, several North American bigfoot sightings were reported in the last week alone! This is the most extensive collection of bigfoot sighting reports seen since the heyday of cryptozoology and monster hunting in the 1950s and 1960s. This is according to many experts in the field.
What is a Cryptid?
Cryptids are creatures that have not been proven to exist by the scientific community. They are often described as a mystery, horror, or something to be scared of. Cryptids can live in any environment and are often found in high mountains. For example, many people claim to have seen Bigfoot in North America. The mountain ranges provide natural camouflage for these creatures, making them difficult to spot unless you know what to look for. Cryptid hunters also tend to use cameras with infrared capabilities because it allows for better visibility at night when these animals come out of hiding.
The History of Bigfoot Sightings
It is challenging to know the exact origins of the North American Bigfoot Sightings, but there are many theories about how the elusive creature came to be. The most popular theory is that Sasquatch was a Native American legend, and the first one was sighted in 1858. Others believe it was created in a lab as a hoax or mistaken for a bear. Some think it is an extension of similar creatures like Yeti, Yowie and others. In reality, people have yet to learn how and why these sightings occur.
Many people say they can’t help but become frightened when they come across this mystery creature, and their deep voice only adds to their horror. Some have said they felt more than just scared-they felt threatened. But not all have had such a negative experience-some felt completely at peace with the animal, even claiming it was trying to communicate with them.
For some, encountering the beast was almost spiritual and took away any fear.
One man named Walt Disney insisted he saw one while riding his bike on Christmas Eve 1924 near Redwood Creek near Mendocino County, California; he said it stepped out from behind a tree into a clearing where he could get a detailed look at it. His claim sparked renewed interest in bigfoot sightings which led him to make films, including Fantasia. Whether you want to believe in this creature or not, there is no denying that many North Americans swear they have seen it.
California’s Overwhelming Evidence for Bigfoot
In 1967, a man named Jerry Crew saw what he described as a large, hairy animal cross the road in front of him. This was not an isolated event: more than 20 sightings have been in California alone since 1969. When Crew was interviewed for this story, he said that this experience changed his life forever.
The discovery of these footprints and other evidence led to the formation of an organization called C.O.B.R.A., which stands for Californians Organized for Bigfoot Research and Animal Awareness. They are one of many groups dedicated to finding proof that the Sasquatch exists. For those who have seen it with their own eyes, there is no doubt; yet many remain unconvinced.
The North American Sasquatch Project (N.A.S.P) has over ten years' worth of video footage and photos showing purported images of the Sasquatch in various regions across North America, including Washington State’s Olympic National Park, where they’ve had 18 sightings since 1978.
The body part moves on to say that over 30% of Americans believe in some form or another of crypto-zoology-the study or search for animals whose existence is unproven or disputed - from Loch Ness Monster sightings to bigfoot reports.
Facts About the Patterson-Gimlin Film
The Patterson-Gimlin Film (often abbreviated PGF) is a short motion picture of an unidentified subject that the filmmaker claimed was Bigfoot. Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin shot the footage in 1967 in Northern California. Many scientists have studied it, yet no definitive explanation has been found. Bob Heironimus claimed to be the man in the suit and said Roger Patterson paid him $500 to wear it and make fake footprints alongside Patterson’s real ones. However, more than his confession may be needed to prove his identity.
The film has generated much discussion about what exactly it shows.
Some say the figure is nothing more than a hoax perpetrated by either Roger or Bob; Others believe it might have been filmed on April Fool’s Day; while still others maintain it is proof of an undocumented animal species which may exist only in North America. The story behind this debate is just as fascinating as the footage itself. To understand the Patterson-Gimlin Film, one must consider some essential questions:
Who made the suit?
How did they make it?
What does it mean if there are two figures wearing suits? And why did they do that?
About who created the costume, we need to figure out whether Bob or Roger was responsible.
In terms of how they constructed such a convincing imitation of a Sasquatch, we can’t know because we have yet to share their methods with us - but we can assume they utilized similar methods as those used in Hollywood special effects studios like Disney and Pixar.
Draw your own conclusion
In cryptozoology, animals are studied that have not been scientifically documented. It is often associated with the legends and sightings of creatures like the Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, or Sasquatch (aka Bigfoot). This past week, there was a notable North American bigfoot sighting in Siskiyou County, California.
A man reported seeing a large creature covered in hair standing on two legs at an elevation of 5100 feet. His observation was made after dusk, but he noted its size as being 8-10 feet tall. He described it as dark brown or blackish in colour and said it had no neck and a smallish head. He also claimed that he didn’t smell anything odd when he saw the animal. The person who reported this sighting has contacted others from his community about what he saw. In response to this report, some experts suggest these observations may be due to a bear rather than Bigfoot.
However, many people are pointing out that if a bear were present at such an elevation, it would need to cross several mountain ranges to get there. They believe that because humans have yet to encounter any bears at such high elevations before, more research needs to be done before coming up with any conclusions.
An interesting part of this sighting is how close the date is to another bigfoot report which happened near Mount Hood in Oregon on September 20th, 2017.
Video Footage and Audio Recordings
In a video released by the Sasquatch Chronicles, a group of Sasquatch researchers claimed to have captured footage and audio recordings of the elusive creature. The footage was captured in various parts of North America. The group has been studying the species for years and is convinced they are now closer than ever to solving the mystery.
The footage was captured from various cameras set up in remote locations, such as parks and forests. One camera even caught a Sasquatch at an abandoned house that had fallen into disrepair. In some cases, we see glimpses of the animal’s backside as it retreats into what appears to be a cave opening on private property.
In other cases, it seems like we are following one Sasquatch around on its nightly rounds—checking out trash cans and making mischief while the rest of us sleep peacefully in our beds. We also hear clear sounds in the distance that correspond to what’s happening on screen. For instance, when the Sasquatch moves past a field and leaves droppings behind, you can hear howls from wolves echoing through the night sky. It gets very spooky at times!
What makes these videos so compelling is their authenticity; it’s hard not to believe these images because of how raw and real they feel. When combined with data collected by acoustic sensors planted throughout heavily forested areas, we are getting closer than ever before to understanding this mysterious being.
