Oh, No! “Most Convincing Evidence of Bigfoot” News Conference Scheduled

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 14th, 2011

This just came across my desk, as they use to say in the newspaper business. Please take it for what it may be worth…a promotional effort for a radio station? An attempt to drive people to a website? A hoax? A new piece of evidence from a “paranormal” or “UFO” society? OMG! Has it come to this?

Scientists (i.e. biologists, anthropologists, zoologists), hopefully, someday, will hold the first news conference about the initial definitive discovery of Sasquatch, not a paranormal radio station or website. But, well, we report it, so here’s the news. You can thus get ready for it, if any ripples are created, positively or negatively.

To wit, here is the news release (with spellings and incorrect grammar unchanged, for example, with words like “employe” and “Sierra’s” left intact):

For Immediate Release

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.

    Here’s a link that will enable you to listen to the whole story from the horses mouth. It’s a streaming video/radio broadcast made by Jefferey Gonzalez the top man at the Sanger Paranormal Society, recorded on the 2nd June 2011

    Hope you’ve got the stamina!!!

  2. DWA responds:

    OK, I chuckled and snorted the whole way through this blog.

    Don’t they know not to let the stench precede them? THAT’s why I’m holding my breath.

  3. mandors responds:

    Hey, weren’t these the same guys proclaiming the end of the world last month?

  4. zogstar67 responds:

    Sorry, are those credentials listed supposed to be impressive? Associate degree in Electronics? High school science teacher?
    There’s nothing wrong with being an average guy with average, admirable accomplishments, but don’t tout them as something special that lends you credibility.

  5. DWA responds:

    zogstar67: no kidding.

    “Doctor. Lawyer. Indian chief. That is CHIEF, buddy.”

    “We aren’t scientists, just curious. Why isn’t science?” That’s the one I want to see.

  6. korollocke responds:

    Wouldn’t the glass have shattered from something supposedly that big pressing on it hard enough to leave an impression? Doesn’t an impression involve Rich Little or Frank Gorshin? How big/thick was the glass in question to have half the upper body and face/lips (maybe it was Mick Jagger?) or are we dealing with an average man sized subject? It will take more than a poorly hoaxed greasy smudge to prove anything to anyone.

  7. graybear responds:

    Wake me when its over.

  8. whiteriverfisherman responds:

    The glass would provide a good DNA sample if collected properly. Of course there is no known DNA sample of a Bigfoot to compare the results with; therefore even a good sample will only provide more questions.

    Whatever happened to the guys that supposedly have definitive proof of Bigfoot and a family of these creatures on film?

  9. Cernovog responds:

    korollocke, certainly, if a large ape bolted at a track and slammed into the window as if it didn’t realize there was glass in the way, there would be some damage. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. In my work with zoo gorillas, I have seen them press their hands and faces against the glass plenty of times leaving big greasy smears, hand prints and facial impressions.

    The passenger side window does seem to be a small area for what they are claiming to have. We’ll just have to wait and see. Maybe it’s actually good. When a gorilla presses his or her hand against the glass, you can see really detailed dermal ridges. It’s really quite remarkable.

  10. gridbug responds:

    Will wait and watch.

  11. fuzzy responds:

    OBoyOBoy – A real live Paranormal Society hosting a Press Release at a Hotel in Fresno?! I’M ALL VERKLEMPT!! And the Researchers have all kinds of sophisticated academic credentials??!! OH WOW!! And nostrils, nose and lip smears on a pickup truck’s windows???!!! OMG!!! And a forensic specialist friend came and took photos and DNA swabs????!!!! NSFW!!!! We are gonna get some results NOW, by golly!! After all, what could possibly go wrong??

  12. dabode responds:

    Yeah I can see it. BF finds ‘Happy Mushrooms”, comes trippin’ out of da bush to hang out with the ‘other uprighters’.
    Leans against passenger side while yakkin’ about the one that got away, then decided to make those faces where you place your face against the glass to look goofy….then off he wanders….”Stupid humans no fun, they go all like crazy and scream alot…then pass out. Gonna go look for more mushrooms….

  13. Redrose999 responds:

    Oh dear…. The BF community is being hit all at once with likely hoaxes. Dang, I’m not holding my breath. Maybe they are trying to get a TV show too…

  14. YowieLover responds:

    Some 6 foot weighty meth addict got caught by the cops and was pressed against the vehicle as they cuffed him!

    Not holding my breath

  15. CDC responds:

    I had a homeless man leave a face print and hand prints on the passenger side of my car I guess looking inside for anything of value.

    All I learned is I have nothing of value that even a homeless man would want, and I need to wash my car more often.

  16. SirKen63 responds:

    LOL @ CDC

    OK I am listening to his radio show on Jun 1 explaining this encounter of a few trees placed in the way going down the road and a couple of them around his friend David’s jeep and his truck. He says it was the bigfoot’s way of blocking anyone from coming and getting this guy David’s jeep (cause they know him) and to protect David’s stuff. He said the trees are to large for one person to move.

    Plus a face plant on the windows of a truck. Foot prints were found. Says prints and dna have been taken.

    I also have 14 more minutes of it to listen to and my ears hurt. Lol. Would have to see what pictures and evidence he has. He says it’s all true and he swore on the Bible. Just a FYI!!! We will see.

  17. Artist responds:

    SirKen63 – “He says it’s all true and he swore on the Bible.”


    I’d better get an adrenalin IV hooked up before the show!

  18. woolybooger responds:

    Interesting. If you visit the website in question it loads slowly, with the exception of a tiny image embedded in the main graphic which takes you a secret page.

    Looks like a pitch for a television show. Not very secret when your “secret” graphic loads faster than everything else and just begs to be clicked.

    There’s also a questionable blobsquatch photo they claim has been “confirmed authentic”

  19. SirKen63 responds:

    Artist just stating what he did. Do not want to laugh cause some hold that as the Gospel and I do not want to affend anyone.

    Now if he had his Hand on a copy of Loren’s book “Bigfoot” Then it would be true. 🙂

    Like I said we will see. There’s always a claim of some kind being show. All you can do is look at it and say for yourself if you trust it or not.

  20. Hapa responds:

    I wonder if this announcement might speed up the Erickson project’s DNA and other findings to the Media.

    DNA in and of itself is never enough to proof any new species (many, if not most would not even admit the possibility of any new species period, let alone sasquatch or another cryptid, when confronted with DNA that is an absolute unknown and has withstood every attempt to identify it. We have who knows how many unknown ape DNA samples we have that are just brushed off as “uh…uh…Sasquatch don’t exist, uh-huh! That’s proof enough for its not existing, yeah!”. The findings should at least merit large scale investigation as to where the DNA came from.), though i did hear about some experiment out west where they used human DNA aside from sperm to create a human embryo.

    Perhaps if most or all the unknown Primate DNA collected from the supposed Sasquatch hair samples registers as the same unknown animal (some scientist i heard is collecting the hairs and DNA for large comparison), and could make the DNA create a sperm and ovary, or an ovary and impregnate it with some DNA…perhaps we could grow the thing in a lab and see for ourselves what it turns out to be…?

    As for this supposed squatch proof press release…I take a watch and wait stance.

  21. dermal_ridges_are_proof responds:

    Mostly laughter like never before. Pass me a tissue.

    Lets be serious. It would be ‘a first’ finding nostril prints instead of footprints and makes for a nice and refreshing change. Do you take plaster casts?

    I’m sure top primate nostrilogists everywhere are getting very excited about this one.

    …and it was one of Nostrildamus’s predictions too, many years ago.

    So lets all wait and see!

    I suspect CDCs ‘inner child’ may be getting very excited at this point.

  22. Ragnar responds:

    You would think the high school principal with the Master’s Degree would have proofread better.

  23. Nerull responds:

    This is why the mainstream media, mainstream biological experts & indeed the majority of the general population don’t take our studies seriously.

  24. airforce47 responds:


    I’m busy and didn’t follow the link but I’m aware of the investigators and if I’m not mistaken they had the photo awhile back of the Bigfoot next to a tree. A possible but another blobsquatch.

    To the best of my knowledge they aren’t hoaxers circa Bicardi, Whitten and Dyer. However, I do think they went overboard for what they found. It’s probably a legit piece of evidence but I have a prior engagement in San Bruno that day I can’t miss.

    Let’s withhold judgement until we see what they’ve got. My best,

  25. Kahil Nettleton responds:

    well…its not like we haven’t heard bold statements like this before. hopefully this isn’t just another bigfoot in a freezer type fiasco. if it is just a “face print” then I wouldn’t call it big news as that proves nothing since it could easily be faked. hopefully they come to the table with a little more than just that.

  26. JMonkey responds:

    Maybe I am the only one who noticed this, but there were five people in attendance. Of those five they say that here are three, then for some reason they decide to include a 4th, but fail to give you a 5th. I am wondering why the leave out any of the people who were in attendance, unless that person left out might actually be someone who would cause everyone to run for the hills to escape the curse of the hoax. I wonder if number 5 has the name of Tom.

    Second I would like to point out that when I hit a cow it left all kinds of hair and prints on my car, but it damn near destroyed the car. I doubt seriously that an 500-800lb bipedal ape would do any less damage, but who am I to say he wouldn’t. Maybe he just fell asleep on the hood and drooled a bit while they were out researching. If they did hit the creature, my advice is to speed up next time and do him in. People just think your crazy if you hit a Bigfoot and it doesn’t die in the process.

  27. JMonkey responds:

    woolybooger it was confirmed as an authentic blobsquatch. There are a lot of confirmations of that guy existing.

  28. SirKen63 responds:

    Guys you really need to take some time and listen to the radio show. All this guess work and fabrication of what happened can be answered on the show.

    The truck did not hit anything it was parked. They left the jeep and truck cause the jeep would not start and the truck did not have 4 wheel drive to get out. There was a storm that came up on them and they wanted out so they did not get stuck there for any length of time. So they all piled into another truck and left the jeep and truck there.

    Also there were guests there that did not go back when they found the trees placed and marks on the truck. I know bigfoot hunting from a chair is hard work , but take the time to hear what happened before guessing.
