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

Enjoy the photo for I am simply sharing B E A U T Y.
You're right as rain ML. Most of the BLM and Forest Service people do believe this creature is real and out there.
I remember once when I was at Powers Ranger District [Oregon] getting a firewood permit, an employee stepped outside with me and told me something that alarmed me.
She said "Mr. do you own a large gun?" I said I did and proceeded to ask her why. She said that several people had come into the office and reported some strange things up on FS 3348.
I asked her what strange things would she be talking about. She kinda got red in the face and said, "You know, weird things!"
I said please tell me more. She said that several employees had been up there to witness loud screams and tracks of something they couldn't identify. She said that a couple had insisted that they were run off by, I quote, "a big brown hairy monster."
I started to laugh and she said "The hell with ya. I've warned you."
I said, "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to laugh at you."
She quietly said, "I know it sounds wacky, but it's the truth."
After that I went home and when I went up there, I had my 308 Norma Magnum with me. I didn't see nothing, but didn't feel right there either. Spooked feeling, I mean. Something was sure up there.
Linda, after working with B.L.M. for the last few years, I've thought about this question for many years. I went to a meeting with some B.L.M. employees on forest animals in 2005 in Portland Oregon. I asked many in attendance if they believed in Bigfoot.
More than half of the field workers stated that they did, because of the sheer volume of track and sighting reports.
Some said they didn't believe in it because there aren't enough data to support the existence of it.
Some said they knew someone who had been ridiculed by reporting tracks and such. None were willing to flat out say it's a figment of peoples imagination.
I've been doing a lot of reading these last few days. In The BigfootCasebook, from 1833 to 1980, there have been many thousands of sightings [recorded].
All of the folks can't be dreaming they saw it. It's impossible for all of them to be mistaken with bears.
I've seen tracks where it was impossible for people to have faked them. Areas where nobody would just leave tracks and leave without making some kind of mark they had been there.
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!
