Happy Patty Day!

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 20th, 2016



Happy Patty’s Day! We’ll never be able to completely rule out the possibility that it is one of the great hoaxes of all time. But, watch this stabilized version of the film (credit M.K. Davis) and note the natural movements of the subject despite its great mass… the proportions of various body parts compared to a human’s… its muscles seemingly flexing, etc.


Then factor in a number of corroborating footprints that were cast following the event, the unwavering testimony of witness Bob Gimlin and subsequent analysis by experts including Dr. Grover Krantz, Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Dr. Dmitri Donskoy and Bill Munns. Finally, watch Planet of the Apes movie from 1968 for comparison. Pretty compelling stuff!

  1. Goodfoot responds:

    WOW! 49 years and no footage can touch this. No attempted fake looks 1/10th this good. Are you still out there, Patty?

  2. KnuckleHead responds:

    To bad there is no footage that is as good in almost 50yrs. Although photography equipment has improved there are inherent issue that come with improved tech. Digital and auto zoom have a lot issues that result in blurry photos. Most people don’t know how to account for lighting issues or even know how to use the features on their cameras. Also most enthusiasts are weekend warriors and can’t or are not equipped to spend the time in the field reguired to get the evidence that proves they exist.so I don’t expect we’ll see photos or video this good until we get a body or someone in the military that spends time training in the field or a park ranger comes out with photographic evidence we will never see video this good again. Remember no one is going give a million dollars for a video or pic unless physical evidence is included.

  3. dconstrukt responds:

    it makes you wonder.

    are there really THAT many of them?

    was this just a stroke of luck to video that thing?

    is it a person in a suit?

    why has no one since in 50+ years able to get anything similar, or better despite us having crazy advances in technology.

    makes you wonder….

  4. Goodfoot responds:

    dconstrukt: I believe the answer is: yes, there are really THAT many of them. Think about it: a sustainable population. In 49 states and, as far as I know, every province of Canada.

  5. thescaly1 responds:

    I think that dconstruckt makes some great points, I think that Goodfoot tries to wedge a breeding population into areas and knowledge of animal habitat which is not helpful.

    Strange, so strange that a man who had long been a bigfoot believer and previously published a book that has a front-cover with an illustration which is not un-like the thing on the Patterson footage, who , at the time, had close friendships within the field of special effects and costume, who was on the scene, at the time, for the purpose of planning to shoot a movie/documentary, regarding bigfoot … should shoot footage of one, more close, detailed and specific than any footage since.

    This raises the hackles of skeptics, quite naturally, like when a ‘paranormal investigator’, comes up with easily faked footage of a ghost.

    I think that everyone knows where i’m going with this.

    Holy shit! He had little luck exciting the press about the subject of bigfoot prior to this!

    A bad debt (regardless of his worth as a friend) who, at the time is clearly recorded as being a bad debt (even the big guy who wore the suit claims to have not been paid for his efforts!

    Tell me i’m wrong, tell me i’m right, tell me whatever the hell you wanna tell me.

    All the best…

  6. dconstrukt responds:

    @goodfoot… ehhh… having 1 photo/video in 50 years doesn’t really say much about your position of there being that many of them…. I’d probably say otherwise….

    and you’re saying in 49 states?

    LOL… okay…. (slaps his head)

    I don’t agree with that assumption… plus I doubt you have anything to support this opinion…. and the facts probably are saying otherwise too… but I respect your position… i just don’t agree without facts, evidence or proof to support it.

    … but if you have any proof, evidence to support your (somewhat outrageous) opinion… feel free to let us in on it 🙂

  7. Fhqwhgads responds:

    OK, so there do exist sighting reports from Delaware. Does that help or hurt the idea that Bigfoot is real vs. a product of the culture and people’s imaginations?

    It is REALLY hard to imagine Bigfoot having a sustainable population in a tiny coastal state surrounded by dense human settlement. Consider what it would mean if Bigfoot were sighted in the White House, only to disappear, the way the ghost of Abraham Lincoln is said to do (by “credible witnesses” like Winston Churchill and Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands!); this would imply either that Bigfoot is not physical or that witness reports by even “credible witnesses” need to be taken with a grain of salt.

  8. Becho responds:

    I have no proof that would satisfy any skeptic. I can tell you I took the number of members in each family then multiplied by the number of families that I know of and extrapolated that into a thousand square mile area I used for a sample. Then I estimated, very generally, how much wilderness there is in the state of Washington. I came up with a number of 3500 to 7000 Sasquatch in the state of Washington.

    I personally know of 14 families and two loners. Most families seem to consist of around five members. They live about ten miles apart in this wilderness area cut with few roads and spend most of their time lodged in one spot. They do migrate for food sources and maybe other purposes, such as a reunion.

    Now you may wonder if I’ve seen all of these Sasquatch? No! I’ve only seen six of them. But I and we (My friends who have gone out with me. Two of those friends have seen them while they were with me, by they way) have heard them converse and we’ve interacted with them to a degree where we have figured out who is who, whether they are adult or juvenile and what their sex is.

    In my opinion they are not endangered. In fact, judging from the number of juveniles I’ve encountered, I’d say they are thriving.

    They are in every possible nook and cranny they can be and still remain concealed. So someone said Delaware? I wouldn’t be at all surprised. In fact I’d be surprised if their were none there.

  9. Fhqwhgads responds:

    It’s one thing to think they are in Washington State, Alaska, or British Columbia — places with a lot of wild terrain that could potentially support a population of large, reclusive animals — but come on, at some point it becomes ridiculous to say they’re everywhere. In Central Park? Sure, why not. On the National Mall? There’s grass there, and a few trees, and there are dropped French fries for them to eat. Underneath your bed tonight? Sounds good — it’s not like you have a trail camera there, and maybe the reason scientists don’t find Bigfoot is because they’re not looking under your bed.

    If Bigfoot is an animal, he needs to be have a limited range just like real animals do. Only if Bigfoot is the bogey man can he can be anywhere and everywhere.
