Another Mt. Hood Video

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 24th, 2007

Here is an example of what is captured on the cross-referencing trailcam’s video, at the Mt. Hood site. The trailcam is placed there to attempt to get Bigfoot images. This, instead, is what more clearly shows up sometimes to be photographed.

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.

  1. Bob Michaels responds:

    A Black Bear.

  2. BadState responds:

    I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure that was bear.

  3. BadState responds:

    Of course, there is the possibility that it was some hoaxter in a bear costume…

  4. Ceroill responds:

    About as most of us expected, I think.

  5. BugMO responds:

    No Bigfoot, but its still a cool video of a wild black bear.

  6. Richard888 responds:

    I wonder if it sensed technology and got frightened by it.

  7. windigo responds:

    Looks to be a Sasquatch wearing a bear costume.

  8. greywolf responds:

    Gosh the only things missing was BOBO and a picinic basket.

  9. sasquatch responds:

    Slow day in crypto-land? Who cares?

  10. Nessie-Chaser responds:

    I know!

    It was running away so fast because it saw a Sasquatch!

  11. iftheshoefits responds:

    I realize there are many , many slow days in crypto-land and I appreciate any thing you find and bring us Loren.

    There may be a lot of things boring to some but I don’t expect a creature to pop up every 8 to 12 hours.

    Many men and women have spent their whole life time seeking answers and have to leave this world with few questions solved. Thank you for your work Loren!

  12. bill green responds:

    hey loren very interesting photo. bill

  13. Harpo responds:

    I think it’s interesting that even when these cameras take pictures of “known” animals, the animals in them are often hard to identify and in odd poses and positions. It’s no wonder we haven’t got any “definitive” pictures of BF yet from them.

  14. mystery_man responds:

    What are you all talking about? It’s clearly an otter.

  15. mrdark responds:

    Gorgeous animal. Wonder what got him so spooked?

  16. Former Lee Warmer responds:

    Definitely a sasquatch in a bear costume.

  17. captiannemo responds:

    On frame 27 you can see the zipper.

  18. sasquatch responds:

    My point is; we already knew there were black bears in the PNW. So…Boring, even if the bear is cute or whatever…I’m sure we’ve all seen a lot of black bear footage. This would have been more interesting if it was put up right after the odd angled still shot a couple weeks ago. It does show that these cameras show plenty clear, Non “grainy, shakey” footage, but again we already knew that from the deer shots from a while back…Still waiting for BF to come into view. Although I DO think they’re out there; I wonder if clear footage like this were obtained (of BF) if it would be offered up for free on a site like this or YOU-tube…I know I’d probably hold it back until some real $ was put on the table…Plenty bills you know; Reality sucks.
    I’ve patted Loren on the back before so I don’t think I need to right now. If you put stuff up for public consumption you have to be willing to hear all responses.
    He obviously is and has been for a long time. That is cool.

  19. size 13 responds:

    Somebody’s gonna have to put out some money for the few who have footage (or photos)to come forward.
    I think that’s what those folk’s are waitin’ for.But who’s got the cash?

    I do like the bear footage,since it’s bears that could be easily mistaken for BF(or visaverse),it helps to know a lot about bears.It also has been reported that bears share the same running grounds as BF,so it would be good to know about bear life.Glad we ain’t got Grizzlies here in the south.
    Who would win the fight-Grizzly or Bigfoot if they got into a scuffle.hmmmm

  20. DARHOP responds:

    Wonder what scared it…? It sure bolted like it did’t want any part of what ever scared it… Interesting…

  21. mystery_man responds:

    This all makes me wonder how often bears come across Bigfoot in their daily wanderings. Maybe we should attach the cameras to the bears themselves. 🙂

  22. wrath of the real responds:

    It did run pretty quick but in the last few frames you see it start coming back. Why did the video stop did it not have the motion sensing range to continue to pick it up?

  23. sasquatch responds:

    Great idea Mystery Man. Problem is- bears probably run the other direction as soon as they hear, smell or see BF. I read a report where two hunters saw a black bear race past their camp and crash through a stream, then a Bigfoot came tearing through right on the bears heels! The hunters were pretty shocked, but if you think about it-the strength of Bigfoot must be incredible..chimps and gorillas are massively strong and sasquatch by most accounts is double the size of a gorilla and 4 times bigger than a chimp. I think bigfoot owns black bear and is a tough go for a grizzly.

    Especially if BF grabs a hunk of tree and starts whacking Bruin upside the noggin.

  24. pterodactyl responds:

    That’s Bob Heronimous horsing around again. Its obvious from the keys in his front pocket and the unnatural way the sand clings to his…umm…haunches as he runs off down the creek.

  25. YourPTR! responds:

    Obviously yet another bear. Hope the next cam pic is much more interesting! So there’s purportedly decent footage of BigFoot that exists that is being held back for financial reasons? That sucks! I like the idea of attaching the cameras to the bears themselves though, seeing as they share the same habitat and all! Dunno how feasible that is but you could be on to something there. 🙂

  26. Bob K. responds:

    Well, to put a positive spin on things, this clip certainly is a good illustration of what CAN be captured with a trail cam. The hope is, of course, that a Sas will be caught puttering around much as this bear was. One does wonder what made the bear flee so suddenly. Could it have been that he detected the camera? Or was it something more-out of the ordinary? (Heh-heh.)

  27. sschaper responds:

    This is good, now we have a way of measuring things a little better at that site.

  28. Lyndon responds:

    Yup, I agree with pterodactyl. It’s clearly Bob Hieronimus. Photos of Bob’s compliant gait are identical to what we see in the trailcam pic.

  29. mystery_man responds:

    Sasquatch- I agree with what you say about a bear avoiding any trouble with a Bigfoot and I would bet that Bigfoot doesn’t want to tangle with a bear either. Sorry to dash images of epic bear/sasquatch battles, but most animals will avoid fights unless it is absolutely necessary, especially with an animal capable of causing harm (except us humans, it seems). Even a relatively minor injury can make things difficult for a wild animal and it is too big a risk to take most of the time. It is just not in the best interests of the animal to go fighting other large creatures and thus risking a potentially life threatening injury. Even if a Bigfoot could “own a black bear”, a bear could most likely pose the possibility to cause an injury and that is not something a sasquatch would want. It does not make sense for a sasquatch and a bear to fight unless it is over food or youngsters. I highly doubt these two creatures would have too many confrontations and I tend to think they mostly avoid each other. My “bear cam” idea was mostly in jest.

  30. raisinsofwrath responds:

    I guessing the bear may have smelled human scent on the camera as he got close to it, hence bolting away.

    I’ve had my share of run ins with some pretty substantial black bears and unless they have young with them they will run 99% of the time. I do think some are giving BF a little too much credit. I wouldn’t give a BF too much of a chance against an adult BB.

    Like I know…LOL!

  31. darkshines responds:

    Looks like a load of otters swimming in a line to me…..
