In my previous postings regarding the OurBigfoot.com website here at Cryptomundo, I detailed some of the problems that I found with the website.
I emailed the contact that I found on the Angels & Ghosts website, which was apparently an email address for Mr. DuPlatt or Duplain, whichever the case may be. This is what I sent:
Requesting information regarding your website, OurBigfoot.com. Can you give any additional info other than what is listed on the website?
I received the following reply:
Thanks for writing. More information is planned and will be released on the website this year.

In my post regarding the videos and photos on the website, we discussed the problems with the dates of a "video", as well as the photos that looked like someone in a gorilla costume peering around a tree.
In my post concerning the footprint casts that were claimed to have been made by the owners of the site, I showed that 3 of the casts in fact had been cast by others.
At the time, I felt that one of the photos, which depicted multiple casts, was a photo of the Bossburg, WA "Cripple foot" cast.
In the above photo taken from the OurBigfoot site, labeled Atwood Lake Region, 6-19-97, the second from the left cast is undeniably either an inverted image of the "Cripple foot" cast, or a photo taken of the backside of the cast.
The photo below is of the "Cripple foot" cast.

The two following photos are taken from the OurBigfoot site and have no description for them there. However, we are led to believe that they are two of the "more than 48 plaster footprints of the bigfoot we have been researching." In fact, the photos are of the same track, with one of the photos having been inverted, converted to gray scale and color saturated to make it appear to be of a different track.
However, these are manipulations of a photo of a track that was found in Georgia. Below is the original photo of the track, before any OurBigfoot manipulation. The photo and accompanying text are courtesy of Sam Rich of Georgia Bigfoot.
This track was discovered in West Georgia, in an area that has shown a consistant history of sasquatch reports. The track measured 14" long and was one of over 30 discovered. The average step was measured at approximately 4.5′. At one point whatever made these prints appeared to step across a nearby stream, a distance of almost 6′. Several casts were taken of these tracks and are currently in the possession of a fellow researcher.
The following photo is a comparison of all three photos, amking it very obvious as to the original source of this track.
I can only wonder what information is planned and will be released on OurBigfoot later in the year?
I can hardly wait. I wish it was then now…
