As a followup to the Fayette Bigfoot report and the posting of the drawings earlier, overnight the photographs of the area and poor images of the car scratch marks were received at Cryptomundo, via investigator Eric Altman. I thank him for sharing these with the readers here.
These photos are to assist with insights into the lay of the land, the terrain where the creature was seen, the feel of the setting, and are not presented here, needless to say, as definitive proof of the sighting. They may be an investigative tool for on-site examinations, or an attempt at understanding the populated nature of the setting, as mentioned by some of the people looking into this matter.

The captions are those attached to each image by Eric Altman, to describe what is being shown in the photo, with my slight editorial adjustments for smoother reading. Please refer to the Fayette Bigfoot report to match the sighting and other locale specifics.

The Historic Sighting Site.
The Scratch Marks.
The delay in the posting of the photographs did not involved anything sinister, btw, as suggested in a couple impolite emails, but merely was an artifact of investigators’ work schedules, transmitting images, downloading availability from a field camera with a home computer vs not being able to use work time/facilities. Life happens.
Be constructive in your comments if you have suggestions, in addition to insights into what you see.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.
