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
Hi Linda, my name is Arthur Lee. I recently started following your blog Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I have never really done much but read these things before. I have spent a little time going over all of the entries for Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I have a few questions regarding some of the things I have read. I did not know what was polite or not, so I didn't add comments to old posts.
One question I have is the manslaughter charge for killing a bigfoot. Do not get me wrong I am retired Army. If I can go the rest of my life and not harm another living creature again, that is very much what I want. I have read the ORS regarding manslaughter . I don't think it would apply. Also the blanket statement that "if you shoot one you WILL go directly to jail," I have hard time with. If you are in fear for your life or another person (the only way I would consider it) I believe you may shoot.
22 years in combat arms MOS's have taught me to listen to my instincts. I believe we all have them; just some are better at feeling them . My probable encounter told me I was being watched by something that was not quite openly hostile, but not happy about me and my friend being where we were.
The reason I have never reported it is that I was drinking the night it happened. It was the night after my mother passed away. My whole family became quite upset when I started grieving. Well anyway , the sober person failed to recognise anything was watching us. I pointed up to a ridge top running off a rock quarry and said "Something is right up there looking at us and it ain't happy we are here." He said "You are imagining things."
Well a few minutes later it was repositioning itself. It dislodged some rocks as it came down the small ridge angling to get closer but stay concealed. It circled around to where it was about 30 yards away and began breaking limbs, very loud pops. My buddy and my dog got all freaked out at this point and wanted to leave very badly. Now, I have no way of knowing for certain, but my gut told me it would escalate its demonstration if we didn't leave. I wanted to wait and see if we could get a vocalisation , or better yet a visual. My buddy was really getting nervous and badly wanted to leave so I relented . Now I have no way of knowing that it would have become more demonsrative if we had not left. I also know that there is no way I could have known something was up there watching us, before it had made any movement at all. My dog was not aware and my sober friend was not aware, but I was.
When I was in the Army, I trained my troops to not look at a target that was entering the kill zone in an ambush, because you can feel something/somebody with ill will towards you is watching you . My friend is a professional, so I would need his permission to give his name and number. I have broached this subject with him; I think he would be ok with it. I just don't have a lot of trust with any of the investigators I have seen so far. If you want to post this feel free to edit in any way you feel is appropriate. Feel free to use my name as well.
Thank you for your comment. It is okay to comment on older posts. We can tell they are older ones. You've made some good points and someone may comment on the manslaughter question. If I remember a comment that was submitted at that time said, that if it happened then we would see. These comments are all opinions. We do appreciate yours. Thank you....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!
P.S. Emery finally said it was okay to put the photo on Ballyhoo.
