Fake news on Bigfoot - just look at the photo!

I couldn't help sharing this "article" with you, which supposedly shows a bigfoot in its phot. A hoax, no doubt. This kind of unprofessional articles harms the cause of those who try to be serious and scientific.

The image is so crude and the hoax is so evident, that it is embarrassing.

  1. There is no intention to deceive. The caption under the photo clearly states: "This is a Photoshopped image..."

  2. I agree, although my logical side says Bigfoot does not exist, I cannot deny my own personal experiences and have hard time reconciling the two views.
    I haven't had a visual sighting, but I have witnessed footprints laid down only minutes before, while I could hear it moving in the brush. There were 1/2 dozen other witnesses, this was in the Dinkey Wilderness near swamp lake at an elevation of 7k', there were three other reported sightings within three weeks and a 5 mile radius.
    Many times, while deer or squirrel hunting, something would throw pine cones and sticks at us from the brush, and we would find long tufts of brown and reddish in the buckbrush at shoulder height and higher. There is nothing living in these mountains with hair that color and that long and is that tall.
    When I was a child, staying with relatives in east/central oregon, there was a rash of sightings in the area and one night we heard it call. There is nothing in forest like it.
    All of the local Native Californians have name for him, to the Yokuts, Mayak Datat{hairy man}, to the Miwok, Yayali{the giant}, the owens piute(commanche ancestors)Nu'numic{giant}, shoshne, Tso apittse{cannibal giant}.
