Re-Examining the Easterville Cree Bigfoot Video

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 5th, 2013

During our re-examination of the Peguis, Manitoba Bigfoot Video Footage which was prompted by DWA, Raiderpithicusblaci made the following comments:

Greetings, brothers. I must say, i am no more impressed with this vid than i was in 2007. I must say, it seems Bigfoot is in the eye of the beholder! However, since we are retro-screening some films, Craig, can we please see the footage taken by Native American teenagers on cell phone on some reservation a few years back? I dont remember the specifics, but i do remember being very impressed with the size and bulk of the subject; the conical head, massive shoulders, and huge triceps. Some of us voiced concerns that they did not film the entire creature; perhaps it was fear or shock(who knows?), but please, Craig, i think we sould give this one another look. Thanks.Raiderpithicusblaci


A brain is a terrible thing to waste….and so is an opportunity to re-review a VERY interesting video from a few years back…Craig, can we please see the Native American reservation footage i requested a few posts (and three days) ago? I truly believe, together, that we should give this footage another look. Thanks.Raiderpithicusblaci

The footage was originally posted here on Cryptomundo on 07/10/2007 by Loren Coleman:

My nephew & his buds seen & captured this bigfoot on their camera phone…it didn’t even notice them approaching cause of the wind…very interesting….Enjoy.Uploaded on Jul 9, 2007 by Wayne Scott

These young men are speaking in cree…”There’s someone standing here boy”…(another speaking)”it looks big”….”can you see it boy?”…”it’s kinda far away”Wayne Scott

  1. DWA responds:

    If that is something, shame it isn’t a clearer something.

  2. DWA responds:

    This from the original thread does seem to resonate:

    “Frankly, what I find interesting is that some of the best, below the media radar, activity and footage, continues to come from First Nations people.”

    I’ve noted that particularly with the recent Alaskan threads and their source paper, The Delta Discovery and its “Hairy Man” section.

  3. Peltboy25 responds:

    This is the first I’ve ever seen this footage. I find this fascinating less because of the actual image, but because of how completely “un-hoaxed” this looks. This clearly is not a bear or any other obvious animal, so that leaves one of two possible answers: it’s a hoax, or it’s an honest, unidentified animal. If it’s a hoax, why does the subject not move? Anyone initiating a hoax would want to show as little of the subject as possible and this simply flies in the face of that idea. It’s also interesting anatomically, but it’s too blurry to make any real useful comments. I’m more impressed by the lack of “fakeness” in the execution. Maybe I’m being duped by real pros, but this is an intriguing bit of footage to me.

  4. alan borky responds:

    I was unaware of this film Craig which is absolutely lousy as a piece of work but I’m pretty convinced from the play of light on the fur it’s some sort of animal though whether that be a bear a gorilla or a Sasquatch I don’t know.

    It reminds me a bit of film I’ve seen of gorillas or bears discovering a saltlick or honey source try’n’o work out whether it’s worth their while to pursue the matter further.

    The one bum note’s the elevation of the recording source cutting off the lower half of the body which makes me wonder if that’s been done deliberately because if we could see the legs the length of limb and the way those limbs were used’d instantly alert us whether we were looking at something out the norm or not.

  5. chadgatlin responds:

    It looks like a bear to me. I don’t think as much of the lower body is obscured as you would think. I think it just has short legs, because it’s a bear. Looks like you can see it drop to all fours and then stand back up. Someone else said this in the original post and I concur.

    On a side note, it’s interesting to me to see that the only commenters on this video years ago that still regularly comment are DWA and mystery_man. High turnover rate among cryptomundians?

  6. Raiderpithicusblaci responds:

    Greetings, my brothers. And thanks again, Craig, for re-posting this fascinating footage (I thought this was just too good to be forgotten) for us all. Now, there are several things i would like to point out: the muscle groups on this subject are in such relief as to suggest an olylmpic weightlifter. The huge rhomboids, the massive trapezius, and the enormous posterior deltoids all point to a incredible set of pectoral muscles. Also, at about 0:28, an inhuman set of glutes is plainly visible, as is a partial biceps femoris. I think this is the most impressive looking specimen since Patty was filmed lo those many years ago.That such a spectacular animal was in such close proximity to these kids is mind boggling. Surely such a beast could have rent them limb from limb….astonishing. Come now, what does everyone else think?

  7. volmar responds:

    It’s a black bear, but his nickname is Blobsquatch.

  8. cryptokellie responds:

    Interesting at first but, this is a bear. Go to YouTube and see “Bear standing up” – many good videos of different types of bears standing up and moving around. Very similar. No real need to infer speculative anatomical musculature details from this unclear video. Also, please forget the idea that bears have short legs. Don’t let the fur and body mass fool you. Go to Google and look at a bear skeleton and see the long powerful legs. At a top speed, approaching 40 MPH, a bear can outrun a horse. Yogi Bear has short legs.

  9. hoodoorocket responds:

    I’m grateful to Raiderpithicusblaci and DWA, both, for sharing the evidence that they find compelling. I am interested in hearing from long-time commentors on exactly this subject.

    I admit, I spent way too much time looking at the Peguis video. While the video quality was not great, there were things that revealed themselves upon repeated viewings. It was a decent encode of a so-so analog tape. In the end, I am undecided on that one, leaning towards a human.

    On this one, the original video quality is not the problem so much as it is the horrible compression rate of the encode. It is so bad I don’t think there is anything that can be gained from multiple viewing.

    It is possible a much cleaner encode could be done from the original footage, if the owners still have it. It is just a matter of someone who knows how to use the software stepping in.

    If I had to wager, I’d put $85.00 on bear, and another $15.00 on it being a sasquatch to cover the spread.

    Most of the footage looks like a bear eating berries, but it’s hard to tell which end is up, then there is a brief section that is very unbear like with what looks like a distinct shoulders and head of bigfoot.

    Unfortunately the compression makes the video nothing but a jigsaw puzzle of artifacts. Another tantalizing and frustrating bit of video.

  10. hoodoorocket responds:

    Rather than work, I thought I would watch this a few more times…

    After squinting, rolling my chair to the other side of the cubicle and other scientific methods, I get the hazy impression of a bear pulling apart a log or stump for grubs.

    The part that is unbear-like could be the bear pulling back on the stump, with it’s arms wrapped around it, it’s ears back, and its back straight during the pull.

    We’ll never know what is pictured here, but I guess I’m leaning towards bear.

  11. eyeofstrm responds:

    Why is only part of the subject being filmed and why is it at the bottom of the screen not centered and why did they quit filming after 30 seconds? HOAX!!!!!

  12. Raiderpithicusblaci responds:

    Good evening, brothers. It really is great fun when we all get going on these things! While i greatly appreciate and respect all of your posts, i must interject: those are not the slim, sloping shoulders of a bear. Even a grizzly does not have the fearsome, broad shouldered physique that we see in the film subject. As far as inferring “speculative anatomical musculature details”(sic),i feel its very obvious the muscle groups i mentioned are on display for all to see(as is the complete absence of ANY neck).The head is nearly in profile for just a few seconds; no pointy ears or snout in sight. The “long powerful legs” on a bear skeleton(!) notwithstanding, i must point out that when upright, bears do not have the buttocks our gigantic friend is rocking; clearly, this is not a bear.

  13. Peltboy25 responds:

    I’m sorry, I just don’t see a bear here. I’ve seen many, MANY black bears over bait. I’m always careful with images like this because, as many have noted in this thread, the shape and proportions of black bears can be VERY misleading. I would wager that a good 90% of “unknown blob-squatches” could easily be attributed to bears.

    However, I just can’t get my mind to make a bear out of this image. Especially with the weight shifting we see beginning in the 24-25 second range. This looks EXACTLY to me how a bipedal figure would look as it shifts its weight from leg to leg.

  14. maslo63 responds:

    I’m a skeptic and even I don’t see a bear here. It has the look of a bigfoot but really you just cannot tell and I certainly cannot discern any features that would make be change my mind on this issue.

  15. William responds:

    Not enough video to truly know what this subject really is. If the Cree interpretation is correct and the man was saying it is far away, then I would think they must have zoomed the camera. If so, this thing could be pretty good size. If on the other hand they are really close and did not need to zoom, then it wouldn’t be all that big.

    This is one clip that really would benefit from the ole Finding Bigfoot treatment of determining where the camera operator stood and using Bobo to match the size of the thing in the footage. The problem is this should have been done in 2007 or 2008 at the latest. It is far too late now.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
