More on Jacobs Bear

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 17th, 2007

Here is a new short video analysis of the photographs of the Jacobs mangy bear. Of course, despite my opinion that might seem to agree with the conclusions of this video, the point must be made that most of the “Bigfoot” used on the following video for comparative reasons are fakes, hoaxes, people in suits, and such.

I suppose this entire episode (but not this video) will be remembered as a moment in history, someday, and a clever way for the BRFO (sic) to obtain some visits to their site. Moving on.

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.

    very interesting new youtube video clip about the jacobs photos & very interesting article about the jacobs photos as well. thanks bill green

  2. Pentastar responds:

    I get a slight feeling that the people behind the BFRO are not too concerned about their reputation. They just threw out the pictures and their theories on the webpage without examine and investigate it properly. Any serious scientist WILL NOT publish anything without evidence to prove that his/her theory is accurate. To find and publish evidence for the existence of an unknown animal is not easy and people will analyse everything over and over to show the opposite of anything. How ever, it is a healthy symbiosis that the two camps, believers and nonbelievers look after each other. As well, we must not forget that the hardest work is for the believer. It is not very hard to not believe in something that is not proved to exist. Or is it so easy to believe?


  3. Atticus responds:

    Its quite sad that an organization like the BFRO will claim something is a Bigfoot before truly analyzing all the facts and pictures taken.

    Even my 12 year old daughter knew that was a bear.

  4. stevencrawley78 responds:

    LOL, that film clip is Hilarious!

    This is a bear, this is a bigfoot (truck) CLASSIC

  5. Sharmz responds:

    hahaha good one

  6. cryptothekid responds:

    When i watched that video i laughed so hard tears came to my eyes!

  7. captiannemo responds:

    That was GREAT!

  8. noobfun responds:

    hahaha thats hilarious and has more analysis then the bfro video

    i like the bfro video its replying to

    the greatest findings and only compeling info thier video shows is the arrows marked ‘boy parts’

    the zoomed face looks like an ink blot test which is how they can beleive its anything other then poor lil mangy bear

  9. scosmo451 responds:

    That video was very funny. Thanks for the heads up.

    As for mange, I have seen a few creatures with mange through the years and the tail is always much, much smaller than it would look if it was furry (which makes sense considering the tail is mostly fur). So, in this video, we would have a very small stub of a tail and really poor contrast. No way to tell conclusively if there is an appendage there or not, IMHO. I’d bet there is, unless the poor bear rubbed it off scratching his rump on a tree.

  10. squatch-toba responds:

    TOOO FUNNY, I hope this puts this whole silly thing to files once and for all. By files I mean the ones that go out to the curb in large cans!!!!! I can’t understand how this went on as long as it did. BRFO…perfect re-spell, …Well done!!

  11. noobfun responds:

    that would be the round filing cabinet? lol

    for hits on thier website this worked perfectly

    as for any scrap of believability in thier research ability and opinions ….

    if they told me the time id go else where to check it

  12. doctoratlantis responds:

    Oh, I knew the bigfoot shots weren’t credible. I’m not ignorant. I didn’t spend four years at Atlantis Medical School and not pick up a few things. 😉 But thanks for linking to my video. I have much more respect for the credibility of Loren’s work than Mr. Moneymaker’s. I think the whole Sonoma incident really destroyed much of their credibility. Yet I still see and hear them on FOX NEWS all the time…

  13. Alligator responds:

    Excellent. Hilarious. A real hoot. The theme song from “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” was frosting on the cake. Winnie the Pooh sees Patty in the mirror…priceless.

    Jeff Meldrum and George Noory were discussing this last night from the perspective of anatomical biology. Meldrum was very articulate explaining why it was almost certainly a bear and not a bigfoot. They were both pretty concerned by reports that there were several other photos from that trail cam that were being purposefully withheld. What timing to see this video!

    Frankly, I agree with this video, the question probably will not be settled until a body is produced. But in the meantime can anyone at BFRO ever be taken seriously for anything ever again? Does anyone with FOX News feel like they’ve been taken for a little ride? Do any of the key players or reporters in this episode feel a little remorseful or sheepish or just plain silly…even a little bit?

  14. mystery_man responds:

    That bear should be getting royalties from all this exposure. It needs an agent.

  15. Hawkeye responds:

    This was one of the funnies things I had seen in awhile.

  16. DARHOP responds:

    OK, is this whole Jacobs thing giving anyone else nightmares?

    Most definitely needs an agent. I’m just wondering when the Hollywood movie is going to be released. I can see the title now. Jacobs Mountian, The True Story Of The Juvenile Sasquatch!

  18. bucko responds:

    Man, the reason there aren’t more pictures (or even videos) of ol’ Jacobs the Mangy Bear is because his writers are on strike. His agent is advising him not to cross the picket lines… for P.R. reasons.

  19. redneck rick responds:

    come on guys, thats a “mangie” “skinny” black bear, are the BRFO high?

  20. Bill Moss responds:

    I have to say again that was no bear. Dr Meldrum knew when he first seen it the limb proportions were “chimp like” listen for yourself here:

    Then later on there was a investigation by scientists on location that found the torso was 18 3/4 inches long but the arm was 22 inches long. It was the most accurate investigation because they looked through the game camera at a model they could measure that was set up where the creature was.
