John Green on Bigfoot Breasts

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 10th, 2009

Bigfoot Crossing Sign

In the intriguing new database archives of British Columbian Sasquatch investigator John Green now found online, the following overview is being shared from his generally unpublished materials. It is an analytic gem.


October 1998

Reported observations of breasts are very rare indeed. In 2600 sighting reports I find only 15 references to large breasts, 10 pendulous breasts, 5 small and 1 medium.

References to genitalia are even rarer, 11 male and 1 female. In 33 cases it was specifically noted that they were not visible, presumably in animals considered to be males.

As to creatures doing anything with fire, I do not have a single modern report and only two very old ones. A man writing to the Antioch, CA, Ledger in 1870 told of hiding to see what had been disturbing the ashes of his fire, where he was camped while hunting. He reported seeing a 5-foot, heavily-built, hair-covered creature take a stick from the fire and swing it around until the flame went out, then do the same with another stick. The other report, carried by Canadian Press a few years ago, quotes an Indian lady, 112 years old, as saying that about 1900 she fled from a “wetego” at a place in northern Manitoba called Devil’s Narrows, and watched from a canoe while it set fire to her camp with a big burning branch.

Ray Crowe’s Track Record had a story of two men near Winslow, Arizona, in April, 1995, seeing an 8 to 9-foot creature apparently eating potato peels from foil in the ashes of an old campfire, but that presumably involved interest in the peels, not the fire.

Of course, too, there remains the question of whether Bigfoot also show evidence of steatopygia.

The Creature by Jan Klement

Harry Trumbore’s drawing of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot called “Kong” is from The Field Guide of Bigfoot and Other Mystery Primates. The field guide realistically illustrates the creatures as they have been described by credible eyewitnesses.

In Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America, in 2003, I detailed an updated overview of this same subject in the chapter “Sex and the Single Sasquatch.”

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Just to get this off my chest—

    That “Bigfoot Crossing” sign looks unintentionally funny. Looks like Ole Hairy is skipping along the mountain trail looking at flowers. 🙂

    That said—

    Could it be Breasts are not seen because Females are more reclusive than males??? Anything’s possible…

    It also could be that Males have “coverings” on their genitalia which render their privates semi-invisible.
    Again, who knows??? Great post, though. 🙂

    John Greene’s database should be hailed by the bigfoot community as not only an invaluable tool, but as an insight into how the evolving science of cryptozoology had first gained its momentum into mainstream science. Kudos, John.

    As far as breasts, it is my understanding of the research I have done, that mature female bigfoots are the least likely of candidates to be witnessed. This is due to several factors.

    One-Mature females are usually accompanied by a single, mature, and protective male. If you run into a group, the male will be the one to make its presence known.

    Two-Most sightings of bigfoots are not accidental, unless it is from a car. If one is seen, it is probably a curious juvenile, male, or a female without noticeable breasts.

    Three-Mature females, with young, cannot risk being seen by humans, and will therefore do whatever they can to stay hidden.

    The only drawback to my thinking is of is the Patterson footage. A definite, fully mature female.

    Speaking as a professional massage therapist who had worked in Las Vegas, the unofficial boobie capital of the world, large breasts would be a literal pain for a female Bigfoot.

    I’ve seen the Patterson film and I can only conclude that if this film is not a fake, the female Bigfoot probably had some serious life quality issues.

    There are so many great things of interest in this article.

    First off, Loren did indeed cover the subject of breasts as he stated in Bigfoot: The True Story off Apes in America (a must read for any fan of Bigfoot and Cryptozoology and a wonderfully written fact-filled and, at times, humorous book). These sightings are are indeed significant, and bring the question to mind as to why a hoaxer would even try to add breasts to a “Bigfoot” sighting or photo. Loren even covered the subject of BIgfoot being gay in the chapter mentioned, “Sex and the Single Sasquatch,” as for the effiminent road sign. Taking nothing from the legendary John Green but this book is definitive for so much lore and legend on BF.

    Last, as with most animals they would be scared of fire which leads one to believe the stories with BF and fire seems to harken back to a antideluvian age when lighting first set a tree on fire and the first man became fascinated and at once began the keeper of the flame. No offense to Prometheus.

  5. Ulysses responds:

    Sorry , i missed out on the statues pictured above. The middle being the Venus of Willenmdorf carved around 22,000 years ago in Austria. It was the true measure of a womans fecundity , that is , the sexiness and appeal at the time. She looks like Patty indeed and delicious nonetheless .

  6. Ulysses responds:

    Sorry , one LAST thing: Comapre the Venus of Willandorf to modern era woman such as Gianna Michaels, Sarah Jay or Genevieve Jolie and see how much we have really changed!

  7. coelacanth1938 responds:

    I have a really dumb idea that might not be dumb at all.
    Have some plastic surgeons view the Patterson film and then ask them if those breasts are “natural”.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
