Since there has been some renewed interest in the Bigfoot community in the following photograph, I thought I should post it again.
What is shown in this image? Where was it taken? By whom? When? Of what?
After all, there are so many more eyes here than there was when this first appeared, perhaps someone can source this one.

Cryptomundo reader captiannemo sent in this photo.
Anyone know anything about this one?
Leave your guesses and any known information in comments below.
For editorial comparison purposes, I have added examples of archival photos of dead gorillas.
It is noteworthy to see that traditional trophy photographs would show the front of the animal taken.
Please remember to…
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.
