100% real, This video is not fake and at the time we didn’t know what we were looking at. Just that it was huge.
We shot this video during the search for old buried loot in an remote area of the southwest. The location of the cache was based on advanced satellite data. We are not big foot researchers or weren’t… and seek no fame or we would have released this long ago. Its just time people see videos of REAL hidden wonders. Spending as much time in the field as we do and in the places we go, doing the type of work we do, we have been exposed to everything out there and sometimes, fortunate enough to have a camera ready to catch it…
As we dropped off the mesa tops to traverse a valley, we entered thick growth mesquite trees. Making our way through we entered a clearing and John Frost yelled “BIGFOOT”… I didn’t even look up, I just switched on the cam and started pointing it in the direction John was looking. But I saw nothing in the trees, he pointed up and said “on the mesa”… I looked and pointed the cam. This is where the video of the animal starts, the clip is uncut and in total. The animal was the only thing out there that was black/dark and popped out 1/2 mile to the east facing the setting sun. we had a very short time to get in and out of the area so I kind of I convinced myself it was a tree and took off. It was my first sighting. 2 days later, with the help of the landowners son, “Shane”, and a visit to the spot “it” was standing. It was determined the animal was bipedal, 11-12ft tall, with feet over 16in long (length to width ratio 2,7 to 1 and, their was NO TREE! Standing where it stood I could barley see over the hill and we could see it from the waist up! This is raw footage taken in the fall of 1994, with a JVC digital tape cam (one of the first). It was sampled off the tape with a Samsung sports mini DV cam as the bridge off a VCR. This movie clip was produced using Arcsoft VI movie maker. Soon after this was shot, I moved out onto this remote location and stayed about 1/4 mile from this spot for 8 months in a tent. During which time I and others encountered this animal many times. I myself have been 5 feet from it on the dark trail at night and seen it in open sight at 30ft away by full moon light. We nicknamed it Harry. Their are at least 2 more in a 60 mile radius. We have collected scat(feces), tools and food remains like emu and cattle bones/flesh, prickly pair cactus, juniper berries etc…
Later in 95′ we bought “Snappy” hardware/software and gathered the first video stills. Enhancement of these resulted in mapping facial features, fingers, ribs, abs, genitals, eyes, nose… We are still hoping to sample and enhance this tape with up to date technology.

Needless to say, without any movement in the object, this could be something as simple as a cutout on the hill, or even a rock outcropping.
Remember the Anthony B. Wooldridge “Yeti rock” incident?
First thought to be an Abominable Snowman, the “Yeti” was later found to only be a rock. The Yeti figure" was made by a geological formation. Nevertheless, the March 1986 photograph continues to live on as "evidence" for Yeti through its surprising reproduction in newly reprinted books, and via incorrect statements such as on the Outdoor India site, which says in "1986, an athlete, Anthony Woolridge, was witness to the Yeti for 45 minutes."
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.
