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
Dear ESP Team,
This is Linda Newton-Perry. I can not find that great comment by Cole or Hank of late evening, Aug. 7th where the last line was "Got to go. Something is coming." Chris and I have both spent much time this morning looking through our files, but can't find it. It would be great if each of you would write a paragraph of that night again, especially the one ending in the above line. Hank and Bill a line or two on that night while you waited would be good for additional information for the blog, Bigfoot Premise.
I feel as if I'm telling a joke and can't remember the punch line.
Two day's ago I emailed Linda Perry that it would be OK if she posted the shadow figure online. In that email I told her I was not copyrighting that photo. My intentions were to give the readers of this blog a little idea of what we encountered on the mountain. Some had asked for a rough sketch of it. Linda and I had emailed each other because she needed clarification on what she was looking at. I explained the position-- that it was the side and back. The picture taken is only as good as it is because of the position of the camera.
We also discussed that the photo was blurry at best. But I thought it might give the people some idea of the rough overall shape of the bigfoot. After she posted the picture the emails started coming to me from other bigfoot investigators. I will not say what they said because I will not stoop to that level of behavior. Hank called me last night and said the comments aren't all that positive online.
I didn't give the picture to Linda to make us popular. It is simply one photo of a blurry figure that I believe is the bigfoot in question. What we do is not a popular job. I don't want Linda or anyone to take heat for my work and the hard work of our group. When the rest of the clear photos are released people should understand much more.
It has been time consuming and costly for me to do what we do. Linda is a bigfoot believer and should not be criticized by a few. I have always felt the people need to know more about bigfoot and that's what I try to do. I do not pretend to know everything, but I still think that sharing my ideas with the public is a great way to receive information .
I look forward to hearing from the readers about other ideas they have and like I said beforeI take themseriously.
Thank you Bill Emery for the comment. I, RATHER CHRIS AND I, DO NOT MIND TAKING HEAT FOR SUCH AN IMPORTANT CAUSE. Keep up the good work, keep commenting, because we bigfoot believers thrive on bigfoot information. ... 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!
