I can just hear Mr. Haney, played by Pat Buttram, on Green Acres…

Mr. Haney

Mister Douglas, can I interest you in a genuine, artificial Bigfoot photograph…

Sasquatch, Bigfoot Photo

eBay Bigfoot Photo

This is for a copy of an enlargement 8 X 10 of a photo that is claimed was taken in the 50′ or early 60’s. (From the original photo it could have just as easily been the 40’s or up to the 60’s) I have seen the original photo, it was about 4X4 and the bigfoot took up a small portion of it. The original photo appeared to be from the correct time frame, but I make no claim to either its authenticity or location. Because I did not take it nor did I know the person who did.

However, this would be a nice photo to add to any collection of this type of thing.

Doesn’t look that convincing to me.

What do you Cryptomundo readers think?

Maybe Cryptomundo should bid on the photo…


This was taken some time in the 1940s in the Pacific Northwest region of North America by Joe Roberts. In The book “Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants”, the author writes on one section “Closeup of the oldest known Bigfoot photo, taken in the 1940s in the Pacific Northwest. Courtesy of Joe Roberts.” and in another it reads “The oldest known Bigfoot photo taken in the 1940s in the Pacific Northwest. Courtesy of Joe Roberts.”

In actuality, it is not the oldest known Bigfoot photo, the holder of the title ”Oldest known Bigfoot photo” goes to a photo of a dead Bigfoot carcass, the hair is long, brown and shaggy and it is lying on the ground semi-frozen in the snow. It was taken in Lilolett, BC and it is associated with Tom Biscardi. The photo was sent to Biscardi by a Nanaimo man, Lyle Billett. It was taken in 1894. I’am pretty sure their is an article about it on this site (Cryptomundo).

    There’s a decidedly Marxian (Ivan, not Karl) look to this photo.

  2. Ole Bub responds:

    Good afternoon Bigfoot bloggers…though touted as an original retouched blogsquatch photo….it’s obviously swamp gas obscured by Venus…..JMHO

    ole bub

  3. greywolf responds:

    Every still photo I see of “Bigfoot”? is blurred, black and fuzzy too far away from lens, 110 film and on and on. Can’t any one carry a decent camera and learn to use it? photo 101: Compose, Hold, Focus, Trip shutter, PEE pants last and run like hell…

  4. darkworx responds:

    Bigfoot no likey the Camera

  5. Doug responds:

    Snake oil.

  6. Mike Smith responds:

    That is the real thing.You should all know by now that when taking photos of Mr.B, he has an aura about him that makes any camera’s film turn out fuzzy.
    Na, its some guy in a fur coat.

  7. pteroophia responds:

    If I ever saw Bigfoot, not that there’s much chance here in England, save maybe Cannock Chase, but I’d go right up to it with my camera, no need to be afraid, I jut wanna prove the existence of this great beastie. And if he attacks me, so what, I may well stlll be alive with some great photos, and if not, someone would find my camera one day!!

  8. Notsobigfoot responds:

    I have seen this pic before, but I can’t remember where. Something about a dude wearing a cowboy hat? I dunno, but I do know I have seen this pic and it was decided to be very very fake.

  9. wolfatrest responds:

    So it’s not the oldest bigfoot photo, is it the oldest blobsquatch photo?

  10. Redrose999 responds:

    Not so much, blobsquatch. But still a blobsquatch.

  11. Red Earth White Lies responds:

    In the uncropped version of the 1894 photo taken by the lumber industry photographer, there is a traditional Canadian lumberjack snowshoe (40″ average length) shoved into the snow directly by its head (out of frame in this case).

    The visible length of the creature from top of head to mid calf is about 45″, though not allowing for thigh angled toward the observer in perspective shortening.

    Perhaps the visible length if extended is actually over 50″ to under 55″. Then adding upper ankle and foot for a total length of 5′. Rocky Mountain Bobcats can reach 4′ long nose to tail unextended and 80 lbs. Lynx? Large dog? or juvenile Sasquatch?

    If you lighten & contrast the picture, that could possibly be the fingers of a right hand on the corpse breast.. making the arm length and elbow fold incredibly long.. if the furry paws are actually decomposing desicating elbows bent under the body.

  12. Kopite responds:

    Looks kind of like the shape of Godzilla, rather than our hairy massively wide shouldered hairy friend.

  13. Artist responds:

    Hey, Ol’ Bub… where’s the dawgs?
