More on Johor vs Yeti Casts

Josh Gates Finds Yeti Prints Near Everest

Above is the December 1, 2007, image of a “Yeti footcast” from Nepal. While it is unique, it does overtly resemble the Orang Dalam footcast that Josh Gates recovered from Malaysia in 2006.

The Group API decided to more closely compare what they saw as an uncritical examination of the Johor footcasts. Below are their images compared to the actual photographs of the footprints and their analysis.

Perhaps a close up of the toe imprints of the alleged Bigfoot print might shed further light.



Josh Gates seen here carrying his Bigfoot print cast. Notice the peculiar shape of the toes. This ‘perculiar-shaped’ toe feature is missing in later photos of the Cast. Do Rhino print looked like this? Compare too with the shape of a boar print.



A closeup look at the alleged Bigfoot print before it was cast by the International Group. The photo taken from the SPI website. Click here to view the original photo and you will be able to see the distinct ‘toe’ shape, especially the toe furthest left. Placed in comparism is some boar prints I found near the same area.

The Verdict? The Johor Bigfoot print cast by Jan McGirk and Josh Gates was a blotched job. They should have cast the entire ground including the whole foot, so that when done, the imprint would have the exact print, and not just fill in the depression, which was subject to human opinion, amount of cast material, etc. at that point in time.API

    I agree with the API.

    I don’t think there was any deliberate malice in the blotching, but blotch it they did.

    I still hope…..

  3. Fireberg responds:

    I can’t argue what the tracks are or not; but the way he is dressed in the photo suggests he is in a colder climate vs. his Malaysia trip.

  4. redneck rick responds:

    I seen a lot of tracks in the wild, all different kinds, and those tracks just dont look right, they look almost to good, when an animal walks in the wild , the prints get smudged when the animal steps and strides, im sorry, I think they are fake.
