Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    “I’ve never done this before. How should I walk?”

    “Like you’re big and heavy. Knees up, head slightly down. Remember that video I showed you of the Bigfoot waking through the creek?”


    “I want you to swing your arms just like that, but we need to make them think you’re bigger… so arms up like you’re a Bigfoot soldier on a mission!”

    “Okay… but won’t they know still think this is fake?”

    “Nah… I’ll show a brief clip — nothing that will give people enough to draw a solid conclusion. Besides, I already have a great story down pat… it’s only a matter of time before Larry King calls.”

    I say it’s fake. The creature marches right on by without so much as a look. The person filming was close enough so that the creature should have noticed him. If only real Sasquatch were that careless… this whole “is it real?” business would have been settled a loooong time ago.

  2. mystery_man responds:

    Well, let’s ask the guys who have the Bigfoot body. Is that what one looks like?

    This actually looks pretty fake to me. Although we don’t really know with absolute certainty how a Bigfoot would walk, the way of walking displayed here looks a lot to me like someone in a suit trying to copy a “Patty” way of movement. It looks forced and unnatural, like whatever it is isn’t comfortable in their own skin (or suit). The body itself looks as if it could easily be a suit as well. Looks well within human size parameters and body dimensions.

    I’m very willing to consider films like this with an open mind, and my first instinct here is that it is a hoax. Any other information at all on this clip? Any secondary evidence? Footprints? Anything at all?

  3. DWA responds:

    Ok, people, whenever you see something like this you don’t even need to open the video:

    “bigfoot caught on film in bay city mi near the bay! i brightened the clip so you can see it better it was getting dark out”

    Yep. His mind is so blown, he’s terminally blase!

    Likewise the other extreme:

    OMIGOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I SAW DELIVERING MY MAIL THE OTHER DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you’ve read a lot of sasquatch sighting reports, I’m telling you, you know what someone who’s seen one sounds like.

    And it has nothing to do with neuro-linguism or internal BS software or anything like that. It’s simply: that’s how I’d react if I ever really saw something like that.

    Oh, the video.

    I’d go for a Bay City Roller in a costume before a Bay City Bigfoot.

  4. Cashel responds:

    Try something new, guys. Nessie hasn’t been faked in forever, at least make it interesting.

    There are only 60 minutes in a degree, but the coordinates have 83 degrees and 89 minutes: “…longitude: 83.89 w”???


  5. Richard888 responds:

    I can easily identify the monkey suit. I saw it in a beer commercial.

  6. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Bigfoot + Nazi-style goose-step march= Lame

  7. springheeledjack responds:

    7 seconds of footage…are you kidding me? Why, because if we had watched any longer, we would have seen the guy in the suit trip and fall down?

    sigh…I was going to start my comment (when I saw the headline that is):

    “Why do we always have to refer to these clips and footage as ‘alleged’,” but this is why. Because with so many bored people in the world, and more sophisticated equipment, you can’t trust anything coming the cryptozoological way because of imposters like this.

    Sheesh…how about a decent Mothman hoax for a change of pace…or maybe a mermaid…:)

  8. RHFay responds:

    Monkey suit. Nuff said.

  9. StinkFoot responds:

    never seen someone try to walk so hard before.

  10. folcrom responds:

    So wookie suits also come in blonde

  11. hudgeliberal responds:

    One of the worst fakes and walks that I have ever seen. When I see these type of makes me think that the Patterson film is legit. The walk in the Patterson film was so fluid and natural yet not really a human gait. I think the more fakes we see the more it makes the Patty film stand out. Watch this and then turn around and watch the Patterson film..amazing the difference. There are literally hundreds of these horrible vids seemingly popping up daily on YouTube and other video hosting sites. I wish these morons would find something better to do with their time. I tell ya,bigfoot research has been set back decades because of the recent shenanigans of people like this,the guys claiming a body and all of the bigfoot sites,radio shows and blogs by so-called “researchers” that actually make me blush in embarassment for THEM when I listen to their very unprofessional shows and interviews…..sigh. The beat sadly goes on……

  12. wolfatrest responds:

    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to notice the completely unnatural walk. I don’t think I’ve ever seen ANYTHING walk with that much self-consciousness.

  13. sausage1 responds:

    I’m not even dignifying this with a response, and this is the response that I am not dignifying it with.

    Coming, nurse…

  14. jrenn responds:

    Reminds me of the Penn and Teller video. Ah….the memories…bah.

  15. ConsentRevoked responds:

    Otter in a monkey suit. Oh, Wait.

    So disappointing. I don’t think the hoaxers are even trying anymore. Next will be cardboard cutouts.

    Aren’t these people embarrassed? If I were going to take part in a hoax, I think I would at least insist that it be an honest attempt. There are simply too many fools out there with cameras and LOTS of spare time. Although apparently not enough time to practice walking in their new outfits.

  17. Artist responds:

    Oh NO, it’s The Creature From The Gack Lagoon!

  18. cryptidsrus responds:

    Indeed it does look very fake.

  19. Dr Kaco responds:

    Ok so this is wayyyyy too fake but I must commend Mr. Coleman for showing us such comical pieces here and there. I’m pretty sure he’ll agree with me if you keep your focus too long on just serious hard nose research it becomes mundane and boring. Bravo Loren Bravo 😉
    Thanks for the clip and your continued hard work with keeping the website up and on going crypto-work 😉

  20. Lightning Orb responds:

    I’m not convinced either, but at least it’s better than that one with Bigfoot shoveling his walk in a snowstorm.

  21. larrykat responds:

    Just a casual interest in BF, but my first thought upon seeing this was – someone is trying to imitate “Patty”.

  22. DWA responds:


    “There are only 60 minutes in a degree, but the coordinates have 83 degrees and 89 minutes: “…longitude: 83.89 w”???

    *sigh* ”


    I keep hearing how sophisticated and counterintuitive and sneaky and deceptive the omnipotent sasquatch hoaxers are.

    Um, nope.

    THIS is how sophisticated and counterintuitive and sneaky and deceptive the omnipotent sasquatch hoaxers are.
