Bearly a Bigfoot – Sourcing the ‘Dead Bigfoot Photo’

Posted by: Karl Shuker on April 12th, 2015

Having now exposed as a photo-manipulated fake the (in)famous ‘dead bigfoot photo’, as well as purchasing on ebay’s USA site an example of the original vintage picture postcard of a dead bear that was used to create it, I thought that Cryptomundo viewers would be interested in seeing a ‘Before’ and ‘After’ comparison. So here it is:

NB – The original picture postcard, currently in postal transit to me from the USA, naturally does not possess the superimposed ebay writing – that only appeared in the image of it included in its ebay auction.

Perhaps I should now begin scanning ebay for the missing thunderbird photo?!
