Bigfoot 911 founder shares bigfoot research

HICKORY – John Bruner is a believer and has been doing bigfoot research for 40 years, primarily in McDowell County.
In 2014, he started Bigfoot 911, a group of investigators based out of Marion.
They conduct expeditions at least twice a month to search for evidence of the creature, and in August of this year, the team had a major sighting, Bruner said. He shared this and other stories with a crowd of nearly 50 during a recent visit to the Patrick Beaver Memorial Library in Hickory.
Bigfoot is a bipedal creature, walking on two legs like humans, and is from 6- to 9-feet tall, weighing from 600 to 900 pounds. Bruner said some of their habits include rock throwing, wood knocking, building tree structures and building stone piles.
“The knocking was my first encounter with them,” Bruner said. “I was raised in the woods and had never heard anything like that, and they were not your normal knocks.”
He showed the audience a rock that was thrown at him during the encounter in August.
The bigfoot he saw in August was approximately 9-feet tall. The hair was stringy and matted with no hair on its face, which looked like leather, and its nose was flat on its face.
“I was about 30 yards from it. It was big. Its arms came down below its waist,” Bruner said. “It moved with a speed of a cat. We made eye contact for maybe five to 10 seconds, and then it was gone, =READ MORE

ISU professor speaks about Sasquatch at USU

Jeff Meldrum doesn’t believe in Sasquatch. He’s a scientist, and scientists don’t believe — they rely on evidence.
“I am convinced on the basis of the evidence,” Meldrum said. “So I would much rather say I am convinced that Sasquatch exists.”
The Idaho State University anthropology professor, considered to be the world expert on the scientific evidence regarding the existence of a species of giant bipedal hominids, spoke to a wildlife science class at Utah State University on Tuesday in Logan to discuss his research and the struggles of pursuing a subject that often meets resistance from his peers.
Due to his standing in the anthropological community, Meldrum said he doesn’t have to worry about being taken seriously, but he warns young scientists who haven’t been steeped in the “traditional dogmas of anthropology” not to push too hard.
“For their own good, I caution them not to be open about their interests, because I was naive enough to jump into that deep end of the pool before I had tenure, and it nearly cost me my career,” Meldrum said.=READ MORE

Director files civil lawsuit in B.C. to prove Bigfoot exists

Friday, November 3, 2017, 5:51 PM - Director Todd Standing has filed a civil lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court to prove that Sasquatch exists.
The documentarian is calling for the government to get involved. He's requesting a wildlife official accompany him on a hunt for one of the mythical creatures.
"I’ll take out anybody. I’ll challenge them. I don’t even need to go to court," Standing told The Weather Network's reporter Krissy Vann. "Just show some intestinal fortitude somebody, and stand up fish and wildlife and I will show you a Sasquatch. No problem, if I fail you'll never hear from me again."
Sasquatch, otherwise known as Bigfoot, is said to be a large, ape-like creature that lives primarily in the forests stretching from the west coast of B.C. to Northern California.read more and see video

Is that you, Bigfoot?


Just in time for Halloween: A Bigfoot sighting. It was near Avocado Lake in Fresno County, California. Jeffrey Gonzalez of Paranormal Central (www.paranormalcentral.net) told KMPH that a farmer near the lake reported seeing a family of bigfoots (bigfeet?) running on his property.
“One of them, which was extremely tall, had a pig over its shoulder,” Gonzalez said. “And the five scattered, and the one with the pig was running so fast it didn’t see an irrigation pipe and it tripped, with the pig flying over” (http://tinyurl.com/avocadoBF). The Bigfoot photo shown is courtesy of Paranormal Central.
There have been three sightings in the last five years around this same area. “What are the odds,” Gonzalez asks, “of three people, three different families, who don’t know each other, within a radius of 2 to 3 miles, come and tell me what they witness, and it matches up?”
By the way, email Gonzalez at SangerParanormal@aol.com if you happen to see a Bigfoot in this neck of the woods, or anywhere else. Inquiring minds want to know.=read more

Local men film Bigfoot in California

One of the most famous things to go bump in the night in the Pacific Northwest is Sasquatch.
Also going by the name Bigfoot, the humanoid creature is the region’s equivalent to the Loch Ness Monster, the Abominable Snowman and the Jersey Devil.
He — or she — has been sighted in northern California, Oregon and Washington state. It’s inspired at least two brands of beer and the local Boy Scouts of America has adopted Sasquatch as the totem for its Order of the Arrow lodge.
In the most recent session of the state Legislature, Sen. Ann Rivers introduced a bill that would have designated Sasquatch as the state’s official “cryptid.” The La Center Republican’s bill — which recognized Sasquatch’s “immeasurable contributions to Washington state’s cultural heritage and ecosystem” — failed to get out of committee.
Locally, people have claimed to seen Bigfoot in the area around Rimrock Lake and on the Yakama Nation Indian Reservation. A 911 call taker once told me of a man who reported that Bigfoot was trying to break into his house.
But it was two Yakima County cowboys who Bigfoot believers said provided what they consider definitive proof that the creature exists=read more

Man plans to take Alberta to court in order to prove Bigfoot exists

Bigfoot is real. Period.
At least, that's a statement Todd Standing has dedicated his life to proving, and he's about to take his quest to the top — all the way to the B.C. Supreme Court, in fact.
Standing told Metro the court presides over a province inhabited by the species commonly referred to as Sasquatch and wants their government to acknowledge their existence.
He plans to present physical, forensic and video evidence, eyewitness testimony from wildlife biologists, wilderness experts, and more in a court of law to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the Sasquatch resides within the forests of British Columbia — and, eventually, Alberta and the U.S.
The former Calgarian and dedicated Sasquatch tracker also plans to enter a documentary that he claims has 'crystal clear video evidence' that Bigfoot exists as evidence in the Supreme Court case.
"I have so much evidence, this is way beyond a reasonable doubt," said Standing, who has been learning how to track the elusive creatures for more than 12 years. "I'm going to prove Sasquatch exists, and I'm going to prove that I can take people out and show them a Sasquatch."
Standing's Notice of Civil Action to the B.C. court accuses the province of dereliction in its duty to manage and protect the wildlife within its borders, and asks the court to order a government representative — likely a wildlife biologist — to accompany him on a tracking expedition so he can prove once and for all that the elusive creatures inhabit the Kootenays.=read more

Still stalking Bigfoot 50 years after the beast went big

On Friday, Bigfoot believers will descend on a remote part of Northern California to celebrate a shaky, minute-long film from 1967 that not only introduced Sasquatch to the wider world but transformed the cryptid into a pop culture phenomenon that still captivates us half a century later.

The famous "look-back" frame of an alleged female bigfoot from the 1967 film produced by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin.

Look up the Bigfoot Wikipedia entry, and you'll see a familiar and famous frame from the footage that Roger Patterson, an aspiring filmmaker and ne'er-do-well from Yakima, Washington, claims to have shot in the wilderness outside Willow Creek, Calif., 50 years ago on Oct. 20. In the clip, a tall, broad-shouldered, long-limbed, fur-covered creature walking on two legs through a clearing glances directly at the camera for a moment, as if to briefly satisfy the relentless paparazzi before =READ MORE
