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

To the readers of this blog site. You know people think they are sure of things until they learn the truth. I read here where somebody has wrote that Oregon never suspended ODLs for reporting Bigfoot to the police. They say it has been thoroughly investigated as not ever happening.
If they would like to back up their words I will be the first one out to show them the suspension notice I received in 2007. Yes, I recently got a refund 2/23/2010 on the money I spent during that time. And I have all corespondents from the state telling me that they were wrong in their action .
Nobody except one person whom claimed to be a voice for the people ever denied that Oregon used the practice for many years. DP said he investigated this. When I talked with DMV they told me they would never discuss a suspension with him or any person other than the victim. In other words this was a lie from a person who wanted some PR for himself. For all you naysayers out there, don't take the word of a person who has his/her foot in it. Damage was done to the people who found out the hard way.
Please don't ridicule us as liars. I have seen several times this peculiar person try to ridicule folks as liars. Stop your badgering of witness people. Just because a person says it ain't so doesn't mean it ain't.
Thank you very much for coming forward. We appreciate your comment. And if you haven't already told us about your sighting, we would love to hear about it. ...Linda Newton-Perry

The USFS does take Bigfoot reports seriously. It should be known that USFS has taken precautions to ensure the safety of people in the Eden Valley Quad. The reports have been studied and looked at by proper authorities and nothing has been hid from public knowledge except names and personal information on the reports themselves. With this said people need to have respect for their surroundings and not expect USFS to be able to control situations not under our control. We have no power to regulate animals on the property of USFS. This falls under the county and regional police departments for ongoing safety issues. As you may or may not know USFS does not have any information on the Bigfoot as a whole. As of now the Bigfoot is legend not fact. If the day comes that the animal is proved through science to be real then the USFS will adopt rules to help with the management of them with regards to people and the animal. Thank you for letting me tell our side of it.

Carlin, yes we did the same on Monday. It is a long way if you drive at a reasonable speed. The road was closed at fourteen mile marker on 3348 I guess . The signs were up saying it was at the junction of 33 and 3348. The roads are in a mess alright.
Did you two see the danger signs at the lake?
We did, and a notice that some people have reported seeing a bigfoot in that area. One thing that needs to change is a lot of the roads on the fs map are no longer open due to slides. Like the one that goes from Bald Mt to the top of Agness pass. We did find two old tracks that looked to have toe marks but can't say for sure.
Thank you for mentioning the signs warning about bigfoot and attacks....Linda Newton-Perry
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!
