Announcement: Bigfoot Ballyhoo has been under attack, in the past, by a couple of people who wished Ballyhoo and its editors to look as if they were hoaxing information.
One of the biggest examples would be the claim that we made up the ESP Team, Bill Emery, Cole Saxton and the late Hank Parchell. A well-known bigfoot researcher found photos that looked like Emery, Saxton and Parchell. He claimed the three to be the real men and not any part of the ESP Team. (In fact, he claimed there was no ESP Team).
And then while the Emery Team was processing trail cam photos a couple were sent to Ballyhoo. These photos turned out to be well-known bigfoot photos, one from a movie and one of Patty. The technician’s son that was processing the trail cam photos replaced the real photos with fakes. In good faith Emery sent the dallied-with photos to Ballyhoo. When it was found out what happened it was explained.
Another photo of a footprint with a believable history was given Ballyhoo to post. Turned out to be Tim Fasano’s photo from Florida. Again, we’ve given explanations for each occurrence. We were hoaxed.
We in time recognized each hoax and explained what happened
I have worked for ODOT all my adult life. Last week I was on 138 near Steamboat,Oregon. I was driving a sanding truck eastbound. Near the Dry Creek turnoff I pulled over to let traffic go by. I happened to look up Dry Creek Road and saw this large thing walk across the road. And I mean WALK on two legs.
It was dark brown and covered with hair. I could not believe my eyes. This thing was big, and tall looking. It went into a fast trot when it spotted me. Right after it came another smaller one that was black in color. It stopped and glanced at me for maybe 20 seconds.
These things were not bears. They were manlike. After gathering my senses I realized that these two things were Bigfoots. I'm not reporting it to the state; I'm 61 and have 1 year till retirement. Nobody will ever convince me these things was anything other than wild men type things.
The first one was seven foot tall or taller and weighing five or six hundred pounds, and the second one was around six foot tall and probably four hundred pounds. Both of them had longer arms than man and were barrel chested. They was definitely some kind of man ape things only much much larger. I have started to read Bigfoot sites and articles on these things and have found this blog. In this state you do not want to report stuff like this. They'll whack you but good.
Linda, I'm finally home from the hospital . Feeling a bit weak still but will do! As you and the readers know we went back to Squaw Lake trying to find evidence of a Bigfoot in the area of the surrounding mountains of Squaw Lake. This study was to try to locate the animal responsible for the damage done at the campground. We had no illusions on being successful. Anybody that has ever searched for the creature knows the odds of finding it are very small.
Still, we put together a team of 4 volunteers to do a extensive search of the area. We searched some very remote land. We did find some older evidence we think of a Bigfoot, but nothing that we consider fresh . We did find a bedding area with moss on the floor in a cave of some large animal . This moss was collected for study . Also the cave had a very bad pungent smell to it. We found some very old tracks leading out of the area into Rogue River Wilderness area. We feel these tracks are at least 2 to 3 months old.
There has been some talk about PETA ruining the search. I know nothing of them up there.
We had bad luck from the start. Julie was ill with a stomach virus, Sam broke his leg near Copper Mountain and I got pneumonia. I understand the lake will reopen soon for camping and fishing. We did take firearms with us only for protection. It was never our intention to harm Bigfoot in any way. Here are some photos of the area. Thanks for the best wishes from the Sierra Tahoe man and the Perry's. Dale
We are very happy you are on the mend. It is good to get the straight of the Squaw Lake Study from one of its participants. Thanks for the beautiful photos. Lindaq
I write along with my husband Christopher Perry. We are the authors of a Viking Age Novel, Forced Blood The Norseman and several bigfoot children's books. I author the blog Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I'm a bigfoot believer and I hope the animal will be "found" soon.
Linda and Chris, we had great success last night and early this morning. Bigfoot came within 25 feet of me and Hank. We put out salt licks last night to see if the animal would try to take it and he did. I am enclosing a snap of #6 camera. DO NOT put it on the site yet. We don’t want another thing like last week. You may tell your readers of it though. All together we got 4 shots. They will have to all be enhanced but we believe all are very good. This shot was at 6 AM, Sunday Aug. 8, 2010. The image in the background is an old rotten cedar stump. Thanks for your support!
P.S. Emery finally said it was okay to put the photo on Ballyhoo.
