After posting the Trail Cam Bigfoot photo from Outdoor Life magazine, I decided to do a little followup.
The person who sent in the photo was identified by name and location in the magazine. I did an internet search on the name and got a phone number. I called yesterday at 4 PM CST and got a phone answering machine, so I left a message.
I explained that I was trying to reach Mike Tomesh, the person who had submitted the photo to Outdoor Life magazine. I left a message stating that I was interested in getting additional information about the photo, as well as the original photo and/or negative.
I identified myself as Craig Woolheater with the Texas Bigfoot Research Center, and left my cell phone number for them to return my call. I figured that I wouldn’t hear back from them.
Well, I was wrong. At 6:50 AM this morning, I received the following email:
Craig, we were out of town when you left your phone message here. But just wanted to let you know that our trail cam picture turns out to be a prank to us from someone else. We apoligize and didn’t mean to upset anyone in your quest.
