As I wrote about yesterday here at Cryptomundo, A Cryptomundo Conspiracy?, there is much speculation as to the origin of the ‘Dead Bigfoot Photo’.

As I originally wrote in 2006, it was submitted to Cryptomundo by a registered user captiannemo.

The following comment was posted by captiannemo after the photo was published on the site:

I am sorry for the poor quality of this photo after a few years the quality has degraded.

It has been stored on the hardrives of my wifes computers and transfered to my laptop. This picture was found on the internet a few years back and when I first downloaded it, the picture was much clearer. I had no idea this picture was not seen before. After several computer hard drive issues on my wife’s old computers, I thought this old picture was worth saving. I thought it would be a good idea to send it to Cryptomundo and share it before my wife’s old PC crashed for good. Thanks to all who posted their comments. I hope someone who has the original will post it again so we all can get a better look at it.captiannemo

I also emailed captiannemo for further information/clarification on the matter. Following is the email exchange:

There has been recent talk about the image you submitted to the site way back in 2006.

I was wanting to see what you remember/know about the source of the image.Craig Woolheater

This is an image Created from an old Field and Stream article on Grizzly hunting published in the early part of the last century.

I am sure the original can still be found to compare it with the photo shopped image.

I just started using photoshop at the time and was amazed at the press it has received. I did this to see how the finished product would look like for myself and sent it in on a lark and not to miss lead anyone.captiannemo

Did you create the Bigfoot image yourself from the original bear image?Craig Woolheater

Yes I was doing it just to see how it would look as a Bigfoot.captiannemo

If someone would have asked me 10 years ago if I made the image I would have told them yes.

I did not know it would be an issue after this long. I posted the image just to see what the response and speculation would be. Again if asked I would have said I made the image.captiannemo
