    My only solid opinion regarding the Honey Island Swamp Monster is that Dana Hollyfield Evans was and still is quite an attractive woman. I’m not that impressed by the Monster though.

  2. Goodfoot responds:

    So. In the re-creation, I see a four-toed print… which yields, somehow, a three-toed cast, quite clearly. Neither of which speaks to a large, unknown, bipedal primate.

    And it makes my head ache.

    How fortunate that we don’t need this kind of “evidence”.

  3. John Kirk responds:

    In 2003 M.K. Davis and Jay Michael investigated the Honey Island swamp monster at the location. While there they found a tennis shoe with a fake foot attached to it. That fake foot closely resembles the footprint that was later cast by Harlan Ford.

    The film footage does not show anything with clarity so it is of no use as evidence. So all we have is the footprint to sustain the legend and as Davis has shown, that in itself is highly dubious.

    Deduction: Existence of the creature unlikely.

  4. Goodfoot responds:

    I agree it’s likely faked, but I’d like to point out here that faking actually exists with regard to more known animals. Generally, before a creature is officially classified, you will fine fakes. The human psyche seems to have a capacity for faking what later turns out to be real.
