Debunked by the local Florida chapter of the BFRO:

The Debunking of the Lettuce Lake Skunk Ape Footage
By BFRO Investigator R. Monteith

“There’s a sucker born every minute” is a phrase most likely spoken by David Hanum, in criticism of both P.T. Barnum, the American showman of the mid 1800s, and his customers. The phrase is often credited to Barnum himself. It means “Many people are gullible, and we can expect this to continue.”

It is ironic that when investigating the recent Lettuce Lake video out of Tampa, P. T. Barnum’s history was found amongst the blogs of the participants. I believe the men involved intended in every aspect to hoax the public and get publicity for their “joke”. These men knew their hoax needed much more than a monkey suit and fake feet. They did their homework in regards to fooling the public, but neglected to cover their big hairy tracks.

Through the process of The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) collecting proactive data, false data becomes apparent. When the “witness” contacted us, sending his video, we investigated and this is what we found.

Read the rest of the report here.

    As I mentioned back in January – I think it’s a hoax.

  2. cryptokellie responds:

    I didn’t think this was a deliberate hoax but possibly a videoed event being presented as a possible Bigfoot encounter. I was wrong about that with this article and investigative work now coming to light. Good stuff.

  3. Raiderpithicusblaci responds:

    As I said: most unimpressive.

  4. Goodfoot responds:

    I don’t understand what “I didn’t think this was a deliberate hoax but possibly a videoed event being presented as a possible Bigfoot encounter” means.

  5. dconstrukt responds:

    ouch.

    doesn’t sound good…. but until we know more, its just assumptions based on what he’s found.

    the intro and ending to the video seemed a bit suspect, but the ‘thing’ moving was like ‘holy shit!’.

    hope it wasn’t faked.

    but if it was… think about this…. 99% of the stuff we see, that actually we think is legit, is BS garbage.

    what does that tell you about bigfoot?

  6. cryptokellie responds:

    @Goodfoot;
    I meant that a video obtained for whatever reason, once viewed, being presented as a Bigfoot video. While the video itself may not actually have been a hoax (we now know that this video was) it was offered as a possible Bigfoot video for whatever reason. I think that many videos shot for one reason or another have then, upon viewing by the person/persons filming decided that it might pass for a Bigfoot encounter.

    I was having high hopes for this video.
