Who or what has been chomping watermelons on this New Mexico farm? There's a nice array of evidence with bitten watermelons, footprints and the best part--a video of...something walking along the side of a hill in the distance. It's bipedal, which is about all that can be said about it from that distance. It could very easily be a perfectly normal human. It could also be Sasquatch. There's no real way to tell without a closer look, but we do know we've never seen a Sasquach on a leisurely midday stroll out in the open like that. We'd be curious to see what it would do if they'd startled it. Where would it go? Would it run or hide? Someone hurry up and do a video breakdown!

Moneymaker on Sykes’ Yeti DNA Study

Ten Simple Steps for Improving your Bigfoot Research Results!!!

Matthew Moneymaker of BFRO declares that the DNA study was "corrupted at the sample inclusion stage" meaning there were no samples from the US connected to a Bigfoot sighting used in the study. It's unclear why this is necessarily a problem, since the study only used the most viable and largest samples they obtained assuring greater accuracy. And the study did in fact solve at least some of the Yeti cases by identifying it as an extinct species of polar bear, which is incredibly remarkable in and of itself. If you'd like to read a summary of the results and how it might affect future cryptozoology, check out this Molecular analysis of ‘anomalous primate’ hair samples: a commentary on Sykes et al. released by The Royal Society. Its authors propose that the Sykes study will hopefully open up a "productive dialog" between cryptozoologists and mainstream biologists and that "these two communities can and should speak the same language, the language of hard scientific data and hypothesis testing."

Can You Guess This Howl? Bigfoot Evidence
Project Bigfoot needs help identifying this eerie wailing caught on tape that sounds to us almost like a wolf or coyote howl but not quite. It's distant and a little distorted with echoes, but one thing we can all agree on is that it's hair-standing-up-on-the-back-of-your-neck creepy! There are no details or background provided with this sound file, so it could be anything quite honestly. Similar sounds were reported in an encounter with a possible Yeti in Cuba that left a group of 20 hunters and their dogs shaken and uneasy after hearing growls and howls. Another report from the same region related sightings of a rather un-Bigfoot-like short, furry bipedal creature with a tail "ripping apart" livestock. On a lighter note, Linda Godfrey shares a newspaper clipping from 2006 when Sasquatch fever came to Price County, Wisconsin and squared off head to head with...Noah (?) at a very unusual Bible Camp meeting.

July 2

By now you've likely heard all about Dr. Bryan Skykes' DNA results on the two "Yeti" hair samples that have finally been traced back to their source--not a gigantic bipedal primate but to a species of polar bear assumed to be extinct. Loren Coleman rounds up a lengthy collection of article excerpts that show for once that mainstream media is treating Sykes' discovery with respect, something that's usually lacking in the tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic approach they usually take. Of course, there are plenty of the former, including this less than informative report from Discovery that gleefully states, 'Bigfoot' Cases Solved, But a New Mystery Surfaces. No, Discovery, you've missed the entire point here. All of the Bigfoot cases have not been solved, only the mystery of the two hair samples that Sykes tested. While it is disappointing to still not have much in the way of concrete, scientific evidence that Sasquatch exists in the form of indisputable DNA, this study is still extremely significant because it indicates that it is entirely possible for an entire species of large animal to thrive and live almost completely undetected, even as hunters regularly tramp the forests and mountains looking for it and locals report occasional encounters with the creature. Over the years, this animal has left behind only trace evidence of its existence in the form of footprints and hair...sound familiar? The mere fact there's a huge species of polar bear living in the Himalayas and no one has detected it until now is astounding. Not only is it an interesting find in and of itself for a myriad of reasons, but it also reaffirms the possibility that Bigfoot is also roaming the mountains and forests of remote regions all over the world. If a polar bear can do it, what's stopping another creature from remaining virtually invisible to us, especially if that creature is sentient on a near-human level and able to actively avoid detection. And while we're on this subject, let's not forget that other DNA study conducted by the infamous Melba Ketchum. Bigfoot Evidence shares a "damning report" on Ketchum's study by 'Dr. Haskell Hart. As an added bonus, there's also an interview with David Paulides on the subject of the DNA study and also his own opinion on whether or not Bigfoot is more human than primate. 
Determined to solve the huge mystery once and for all, Dr. Greg Little set out on a trek throughout the United States to investigate the late 19th century claims of giant skeletons, particularly at sites in West Virginia. Were there really 7-8 feet tall human giants roaming the earth thousands of years ago? We still don't know, but Dr. Little is convinced that the skeptics are on the wrong track in their theories also.

How To Bigfoot Hunt - Getting Started & Basic Equipment

Our favorite Bigfoot debunker, Phil of ParaBreakdown takes a very close look at the Sundance, Utah footage that's got everyone all astir. For once, Phil has no idea. The clip is far too brief to make a guess as to what this couple saw standing on the side of the road, but we think that if they were aiming to fake a sighting, they'd put a little more effort into to make it clearer to the viewer. We don't think the video is a fake but there's no way to tell what it actually is. A bear? Curious Bigfoot watching the car drive past? A guy in a suit waiting for the perfect moment to jump out and scare a driver along a lonely road? Meanwhile, the Metro Times puts together a rather common sense list of supplies a well-rounded Bigfoot stalker would need to go hunting in Michigan, but we feel they left out a crucial piece of equipment as explained in the comments below the story--a companion whom you can outrun...

So what happens when one visits a well-known area that is a longtime, established spot where Bigfoot makes appearances on a regular basis? Well, mostly it's a lot of sitting and waiting. Bigfoot isn't exactly stepping out of the forest and giving interviews to waiting investigators. There's a lot of "Did you hear that?" and food items mysteriously disappearing from the "Gifting bowls" that are set out in hopes the big guy will swing by for a visit. In a previous trip to SOHA, the team captured what they called a Sasquatch photobomb last September. Bigfoot habituation is not a new concept and there have been several much published accounts of supposed habituation spots over the last several decades, the majority of which have turned out to be hoaxes. The practice has also generated controversy as it's considered by some to be far too dangerous both for Bigfoot and humans involved. Ambrose Kane suggests that habituation is the best way to finally prove that Bigfoot exists, but points out that there are several indicators that most Bigfoot are less than receptive to the idea of human contact, showing their displeasure by throwing rocks and branches at researchers and even destroying cameras and equipment. Some are fond of hurling boulders at trespassers in their territory and campers reporting incidents of rock throwing is quite common. However, in some cases it seems that Bigfoot is the one initiating the contact by lurking around a farm for several years and initiating communication with humans until a certain level of familiarity is created. Gifts of food and toys and other objects are left and even occasionally seemingly traded for other objects like rocks or sticks by Bigfoot. It's a bit like hanging a bird feeder in the front yard and eventually being able to walk nearby without frightening the birds away, except in this case the birds are upwards of 8 feet tall and able to break a human in half if he felt so inclined. There's also a startling lack of convincing photographic or video evidence in almost all cases of habituation, but then again Bigfoot is notoriously camera shy.
