How Rumors Begin? “Bigfoot Captured in Ohio” NOT!

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 20th, 2013


Just in to me, via email:

My husband just came home and said he heard a report that they captured a bigfoot in Trumbull County [Ohio] – that it was injured so they were able to retrieve it – according to the report, it is still alive. The authorities are involved and it might not be a hoax this time. He heard the report on 700 AM – we live here in Kentucky – Clark county. I have not seen anything on the news yet.

UPDATE: Now this Bigfoot is said to have been in Ohio, not Kentucky. “@SlikToys: @CryptoLoren 700 WLW AM Cincinnati is claiming it was captured in Ohio, not Kentucky.”

Bigfoot Evidence and Joedy Cook now saying: “We’re currently tuned into 700WLW Cincinnati – The Big One, listening about a possible capture of Bigfoot in Ohio. Apparent, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources are involved.”

Pennsylvania Bigfoot researcher Eric H. Altman writes, via FB: “The radio announcer stated the guy on before him made it up because it was a slow news day. He got 3 hours of talk out of it.”

Could this be “Daisy in a Box” hitting the mainstream media? No, just a journalistic hoax by a bored radio announcer, apparently.

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.

    Facebook post now says the station admitted it was a gag “because it was a slow news day.”

  2. Deception Detective responds:

    Hmmm! If Bigfoot actually exists, why isn’t there more tangible evidence to support its existence (e.g. dead carcasses, bone fragments, hair, feces, etc.)? If the creature is illusive and shy, as some believe, and if the creature prefers to dwell, give birth, die, shed hair and defecate somewhere other than in the woods (e.g. a cave), why aren’t the BFRO field teams including caves in their searches? Iridescent eye shine after dark is evidence of a wild animal’s presence in the woods. However, alleged eyewitness reports of glowing red and/or green eyes, supernatural speed and strength, the ability to instantaneously dematerialize or disappear, the ability to evade bullets and not leave a blood trail when shot at point-blank range, rotten-egg/sulphur/decaying flesh odors, wood-knocking, rock-throwing, howling, whoops, low guttural growls, evil chuckling, and gibberish language vocalizations strongly suggests an alternative explanation that few people consider: paranormal, poltergeist activity, like that experienced in so-called haunted houses. Contrary to popular belief, haunted houses are not inhabited by the spirits of dead people, but rather by demon (evil) spirits … more specifically ‘familiar spirits’ … so-called because they possess knowledge about a house’s history and the people who lived there. Demon spirits are particularly attracted and drawn to geographical areas and locations where evil acts have been perpetrated (murders, rapes, abuse, torture, sexual sins, occult rituals, satan worship, etc.). Paranormal activity is nothing more than demonic manifestations. Demons are disembodied, malevolent spirits that roam the earth. Their objective is to deceive and torment mankind with their manifestations and pranks, often leaving so-called physical evidence of their passage to further perpetuate the deception. For example, belief in Bigfoot supports one of the greatest satanic end-time deceptions … “Evolution” … an unproven ‘theory,’ … which attacks and seeks to discredit the existence and reality of God Almighty, Creator of the heavens and earth, mankind and all living things. Demons also seek to possess animals and humans so they can experience our physical world as animals and people do. Consider the similarities between evil spirits and Bigfoot: Demons are able to appear and disappear at will because, as spirits, they pass from one dimension to another. They also possess supernatural powers and strength, as evidenced in exorcisms. They are able to change form and appearance and assume the visage and characteristics of animals and people. They are able to change the atmosphere (the temperature of a room from warm to cold) and manipulate or move objects in the realm of our physical world. Their presence always instills fear and dread when detected or discerned by animals or humans, as is the case when a Bigfoot, UFO or alien is allegedly encountered. Foul odors always accompany an evil spirit’s presence and manifestations. They are able to possess animals and willing humans who are vulnerable to the power of suggestion and/or hypnosis. Since demon spirits communicate to humans through the mind and subconscious, hypnosis is an open door for a demon to enter in, take control and deceive through manifestation. Interestingly, the profile records of people who allege to have seen a Bigfoot, a UFO and/or to have been abducted by aliens and undergone medical examination, indicate that Bigfoot and alien entities choose not to manifest or appear to born-again Christians who are knowledgeable of The Holy Bible and filled with God’s Holy Spirit, who leads them into all Truth and exposes deception. The Bible clearly warns that, in the end times, there will be an increase in demonic, lying signs and wonders that will manifest in the heavens and on the earth to deceive mankind. Therefore, my personal opinion and unproven theory, which are based on experience and Biblical knowledge, is that Bigfoot, UFO’s, aliens, and other unexplained paranormal activity and manifestations may be demonic in origin and should, therefore, not be pursued or trifled with. Even Native Americans and people of Old World tribal cultures consider Bigfoot a spirit-being that possesses supernatural powers and warn that they should not be meddled with.

    Good job, Deception Detective. Not many people consider that possibility.

    There are PLENTY of accounts of spirit activity out there. You can learn a lot from the Christian accounts. If you understand that the demons’ mission is to deceive and terrorize people, you can understand a lot of paranormal phenomena.

    For example, I have a friend who was asked to go into a “haunted” home with some other people and pray over it in Jesus’ name. He felt the spirit “whoosh” by him as it left the room.
