    Best Bigfoot Evidence

    This is a Discovery Channel Special, featuring Idaho State University Professor of Anatomy, Dr. Jeff Meldrum and Canadian wildlife biologist, Dr. John Bindernagel. Both scientists take the reports and evidence of "bigfoot" seriously.

    Although Dr. Bindernagel has recorded over 200 bigfoot eyewitness accounts, there are over 2,000 such reports from across North America.

    Dr. John Bindernagel says here, "I accept the sasquatch as an existing North American mammal...People encounter sasquatches, if not on a weekly basis in North America, at least once a month."

    The greatest concentrations of sightings are in the northwestern coast and mountain ranges of the US and western Canada.

    Dr. Meldrum at the University of Idaho is of the opinion that the fossil remains of an ancient giant ape called Gigantopithecu
    s may one day be proven to be ancestor of the elusive bigfoot of today. The only Gigantopithecus fossils found so far have been in Asia, consisting of teeth and jawbones.

    Bigfoot Hair Found and Analyzed

    95% probability that bigfoot exists according to them:

    The Russian Academy of Sciences has said it is highly likely that the Bigfoot really exists. Experts came to the conclusion after carrying out a microscopic analysis of hairs believed to belong to the yeti found in the Kuzbass region of Siberia.
    *In early October, "yetiologists" from the USA, Canada, Sweden, Estonia and Russia came to the Kuzbass region to look for evidence that would prove the existence of the Bigfoot. The trip was not in vain footprints apparently belonging to the yeti were found dotted all over the inside of the Azass cave where the creature is thought to live.

    The follicular evidence was found stuck to a huge footprint on the caves clay floor. Professors from Moscow, St. Petersburg and Idaho Universities got themselves a couple of precious hairs each to do the necessary research. The hairs turned out to be identical to ones that allegedly belonged to a Californian yeti, another from the Russian Urals and a third from the Leningrad region, writes Komsomolskaya Pravda.

    The first to make the fantastic discovery was Professor Valentin Sapunov, a member of the New York Academy and Peter Academy of Sciences and Arts a geneticist and biophysicist.
    In St. Petersburg the hairs were examined through a special microscope, said Valentin Sapunov. This is a complicated, but a very efficient method. The hairs were sprayed with a chemical composition, and then various slices of the hairs were examined. This gave us an opportunity to draw comparisons between the hairs of different biological species, the professor explained.

    When the tests were finished, the hairs found at the Azass cave were compared to those brought from California, the Russian Urals and the Leningrad region. And they all proved to belong to one and the same species! The research of our American counterparts showed the same, said Sapunov with ill-concealed excitement.

    The results of the analysis made it possible for the scientists to officially rate the probability of the Bigfoot really existing at an astonishing 95 per cent, the professor says.

    Fascinating. I think we all suspect/know that they exist...the question is what are they?

    Bigfoot in the Canadian Rockies

    Bigfoot in the Canadian Rockies

    We are a growing group of independent researchers working towards definitive proof and protection of the species commonly referred to as Bigfoot.

    In 2005 our initial group consisted of a cooperation of 4 people: a biologist from Great Falls, Montana; a Cree Nations elder representing the First Nations People; the skeptic Todd Standing; and a paramedic fire fighter from Calgary, Alberta.

    After Todd went public with our work, enthusiasts, scientists, and wilderness experts from around the globe began to collaborate with the Sylvanic team. Now we collaborate with scientists from as far away as China and half a dozen forestry and wildlife officers in Canada and the United States.

    Our tremendous success has come about from our enormous collaboration of minds, experiences, knowledge, and wisdom from all walks of life.

    Primatology meets first nations experiences; anthropology combines with the greatest hunting techniques on the planet. The experiences have been passed down through tens of thousands of years of first nations oral history and tradition with decades of scientific studies.

    Our ultimate goal is to ethically introduce civilization to the most man-like primate on the plan

    Bigfoot or animals? Strange sounds coming from swamp on Umatilla Indian Reservation (listen)

    By Richard Cockle, The Oregonian

    Nobody ventures into this soggy wetland on the edge of Mission on the Umatilla Indian Reservation after dark when the shrieks begin. Resident Sylvia Minthorn once thought about plunging in to find the source of the cries. "I used to play back there when I was a kid," she says. "But then I thought, 'What if I do find something? Then what am I going to do?' " Richard Cockle/The Oregonian

    PENDLETON -- Baby foxes or Bigfoot?

    The eerie late-night serenades began in November and emanate from a brushy swamp on the Umatilla Indian Reservation east of Pendleton. The cries range from high-pitched screams to basso profundo roars.

    "It's causing an uproar around here," said Sylvia Minthorn, who lives in a tribal housing unit near the swamp, where she used to play as a child.

    She's seen grown men's hair stand on end when the shrieks commence.

    Colleen Chance, a tribal housing authority employee, keeps a recording of the howls on her iPhone.

    "It's kind of spooky," she said. "Some say it's foxes, some say it's a female coyote and some say it's Sasquatch. I don't know what it is."

    So far no one's pinpointed the source of the noise on this rugged 178,000-acre reservation that extends into northeastern Oregon's Blue Mountains and is home to about 1,500 people. The swamp in question borders the old reservation community of Mission, in a canyon north of the Wildhorse Resort and Casino.

    Phone calls about the wails started coming in last month to the housing authority, and the office has had a half dozen so far. More could come in because the cries are continuing from time to time.

    Some tenants of the reservation's 190 rentals and 32 homes admitted being afraid and one man reported that his dogs were too terrified to go outside, said Josh Franken, the housing authority's interim director.

    "This guy was rather scared himself," Franken said. A rumor quickly spread that the cries were made by "a young Bigfoot that had got separated from the rest of his clan," he said.

    It's difficult to shrug off the accounts, said Marcus Luke, a housing authority homeownership counselor. Many on the reservation "are woodsy-type folks," familiar with animals and not prone to taking fright at nighttime commotion, he said.

    Daughter and mother Sylvia and Denise Minthorn have both heard the strange nighttime cries coming from the brushy wetland behind them. Denise thinks whatever is in the swamp is calling to another creature elsewhere on the 178,000-acre Umatilla Indian Reservation. Richard Cockle/The Oregonian

    Some members of the Confederated Umatilla, Walla Walla and Cayuse tribes believe the noises come from Bigfoot, the mythical manlike creature said to roam Pacific Northwest forests.

    Bigfoot is part of the tribal culture, tradition and spiritual beliefs, said Luke, a follower of the Washat, or Seven Drums religion, and a longhouse drummer and singer.
    "We have stories about it," he said.

    Bigfoot lore
    To Bigfoot hunters, the Blue Mountains of Oregon and Washington around the Umatilla Indian Reservation have been a hot spot since a Walla Walla cyclist named Pete Luther found 19-inch-long bare footprints in 1966 along Tiger Canyon Road, east of Walla Walla on the Oregon-Washington border and just north of the reservation.
    The Blues' celebrity for giant, hairy hominids even survived the 2002 death of 84-year-old prankster Ray L. Wallace of Centralia, Wash. Wallace's family revealed after his funeral that he'd gleefully used strap-on wooden feet to make tracks around the West since 1958. Wallace was, they said, the source of the Northwest's Bigfoot tales.

    Carl Sheeler, wildlife program manager for the tribes, said several animals in this corner of Oregon are known for making strange noises, including cougars. "When they are breeding, it is absolutely hair-raising," he said.

    "And the first time a person hears a fox calling in the night, kind of echoing around the canyons, it raises the hair on the back of your neck," Sheeler said. "That wetland is a perfect place to have an echoing call sound eerie."

    But many who've heard the racket dismiss such notions. "Foxes do sound creepy," said Sylvia Minthorn. "But it's not the same sound, not even close."
    Her mother, Denise Minthorn, believes more than one creature is out there in the darkness. She's heard shrieks from two directions at once, as if two animals were communicating.

    "It was no noise I've ever heard before," she said. "It was like barroom brawls and laughter."

    Armand Minthorn, Sylvia Minthorn's uncle and a tribal spiritual leader, said he may have stumbled onto evidence of Bigfoot's presence while hunting in the Blue Mountains many years ago.

    "Right in the middle of the road was this great big footprint," perhaps 16 or 18 inches long and manlike, he said. The enormous stride carried it across the road, leaving one footprint in the middle, he said.

    Nevertheless, he said, the current shrieks could be anything.

    "We probably will never know what made those sounds," he said.

    Thanks for the link. I found another site with local bigfoot reports and while it also had several sightings, they were different. I wish the researchers would work together (pool their information) instead of trying to one-up each other.
