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
Hello to all. When I saw the Bigfoot creature on Feb 24th, I thought about who to report it to.. I am very happy to announce to you that I have not received anything from the state about my sighting. You might remember I reported to a ranger not the police. Since then I have talked with several people that have seen this thing. We all seem to agree that if a person sees a bigfoot on any road and in the country they should not report the sighting to any police unless the animal is a danger to the public.
The ranger that took my report told me of the trouble people get into when trying to report it. After re traveling the road several times I have come to a much better understanding of the size of the bigfoot. By my calculations the bigfoot was 9 ft tall and around the weight of 800 to 900 lbs. I arrived at this by talking with a expert on weights of various animals. I believe this one was a male because of the size and not seeing a breast on it. Anyway after the sighting I felt isolated and scared to talk much about it. I do realize there has been some talk on the blog of another man getting the treatment of the law. I am so glad the ranger was educated on bigfoot sightings or I may have been called a fraud. I really can understand why people are so reluctant to call law enforcement people when they see this thing.

Thank you for your comment. And we are so glad you reported your sighting to the right agency...Linda Newton-Perry
Henceforth we will set a kinder tone as far as the police goes. We have gained the victory, so it seems, of not having a license suspended simply for reporting a bigfoot. This latest squabbling over sightings on this blog is reducing the satisfaction of our victory.
When one reports on this site or as in an article in a newspaper, there is the chance a reader will try to contact the reporter, find out more details etc. My advice is if you do not desire to be contacted, do not state your name or the exact location of the sighting. We simply, on this blog, wish to share the excitement of sightings.
For several years now, I've been writing for, and have owned part interest, for a time, in our local paper. Keep sharing your sightings; for as I've often stated, you are very special to have seen one of these animals. Let's keep the blog informative and upbeat.
I have no way of knowing who you are if you use the anonymous or first name in the comments. So I can't and will not pass any information along without your okay and knowledge.
I am not responsible for comments on this blog. I will however delete the ones I find objectionable.
Again, share your sightings. We want the world to know, this animal exists and is being seen. We want "bigfoot talk" to become commonplace.
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!
