Exposing the ‘Dead Bigfoot Photo’ – The Bear Facts!

Posted by: Karl Shuker on April 11th, 2015

On November 21 2006, Craig Woolheater posted on Cryptomundo the following very intriguing photo, which has since become popularly referred to as the ‘dead bigfoot photo’, together with a request for any information available concerning it:

Hunting The Ape Man

In view of its very striking, tantalising image, the photo attracted much interest, and was subsequently reposted twice by Loren Coleman on Cryptomundo (April 16 and 22 2009) with further requests for information. It has also been featured on many other websites. Yet although numerous opinions have been aired as to what it depicts (a shot bigfoot, bear, gorilla?) and whether or not it is authentic or photo-manipulated, no conclusive evidence as to its true nature has ever been obtained and presented – until now!

Further details are available here on my ShukerNature blog.
