‘Bigfoot’ expert says creature highly likely present in Oklahoma

I commented on the subject of Bigfoot with ABC News 8 out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. (And for the record, they said “expert,” not me.)

‘Bigfoot’ expert says creature highly likely present in Oklahoma

TULSA, Okla. — It’s a legend older than all of us.

A creature — half man, half ape — walking the woods.

To many, if not most, it seems like a tall tale, but for some the answer is quite clear.

Bigfoot is real.

“I often in this research realize that we may not know everything that we think we know about the world around us,” said Lyle Blackburn.

Blackburn is a cryptozoologist. He says he studies unknown creatures.

“I’m a monster hunter basically,” he said.

Blackburn says he’s been fascinated with bigfoot since he was a kid. He said the famous 1967 video helped kick start and hold his fascination.

“It is one of the biggest and ongoing mysteries of our world. Are there huge man-like apes walking through our forests? If there are, how have they been able to manage being hidden and unproven thus far?” said Blackburn.

He says there have been numerous bigfoot sightings in Oklahoma, which he says has the perfect geography for a creature to remain hidden.

“I’ve been to the Ouachita (mountains) and researched over the years,” said Blackburn. “It’s one of those things that I think any minute now, there’s going to be some kind of proof or at least a better photo coming out of there. I think it’s a really good area.”

“I put Oklahoma way at the top of the list of places that could truly be a habitat for an animal like this,” said Blackburn.

When asked directly whether he believes bigfoot exists, Blackburn says he’s heard countless reliable witnesses, but “for me personally, I would have to see it to give you that final answer. I think it is a definite possibility.”

Blackburn is speaking Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at the Honobia Bigfoot Festival and Conference in Oklahoma.

    but when asked… he has zero proof to support his belief.


    so until that point, IMO, it’s just some dude talking about what he thinks.

    I’m sure they exist too… but sadly, there’s no solid proof to fully support this claim… yet.

    to prove the point…

    its like me being a wannabe police officer… and running around town saying “john doe” killed someone.

    first thing everyone is going to ask?

    Same thing YOU are going to ask for?



    same here.

    you say this?


    wheres the proof to support it?

    only he’s not talking about a murder… oh no, he’s talking about something that science hasn’t proven to exist (yet)… so it’s even more outlandish.

    proof people.

    you need it to support your claims.

    doesn’t matter what kind of claim you make… bigfoot, NFL football, the traffic court, mcdonald’s.. you need proof.

    without it, you’re just some random wannabe shouting from the rooftops… without any substance to back up your claim.

    and I want to believe.

    but you gotta have SOMETHING… just saying it, doesn’t cut the mustard folks.

    stay frosty. 🙂

    You are off a little bit there. If you were a wannabe Cop, running around town saying “John Doe killed someone”, and you had hair traceable to John Doe, finger and footprints similar to John Doe’s, thousands of people who saw John Doe, hundreds of years of various people writing about John Doe (back into the early 1800s), thousands of fuzzy photos, a few very good videos of John Doe, people wouldn’t look at you like an idiot for saying something about John Doe. It would seem to most intelligent people, that you had done a great deal of research into your theory that John Doe killed someone. While, you may not have a smoking gun direct evidence, I have seen many people go to jail on far less circumstantial evidence!

    Just Sayin’
