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
"Ms. Kathy Bigfoot told me in private that she doesn't mind asking for comments, but she does wish the results were better." How can you help? Comment! It is just simply easier to keep up the enthusiasm when readers comment.
It's raining. And it's easy to see footprints. Be careful and search with an adult if you are a child. And if you are an adult take along a child. Ms. Kathy Bigfoot says that you will be making memories that will never be forgotten. And we agree. ... LNP
Ms. Kathy Bigfoot, Bigfoot Ballyhoo's children's editor, loves crafts. She made this pin from flour, glue and salt. She wears it with pride when out of her office. Aren't crafts so much fun? Do you have a craft you would like to share. Ms. Kathy is especially interested if it has to do with bigfoot. Please post a comment.
We were disappointed that no one posted a bigfoot sighting that they’d had over the fourth. Although, it is better that no sightings were reported than made-up ones posted. I spend a good deal of time each day on Youtube looking for content for our online bigfoot magazine, “Bigfoot Ballyhoo.” I, Linda Newton-Perry, take the subject ofbigfoot very seriously. It puzzles me that there are so many “trashy” videos about bigfoot. Even the children, and we know children will have fun, often ruin what could be entertaining videos with swearing.
If you are wondering what children have to do with Bigfoot Ballyhoo and bigfoot, on weekends we post things of interest to children concerning bigfoot. It is our experience that children love to hear and see children talking about subjects they share in common.
This next subject is a little “off subject” where bigfoot is concerned, but here goes. The August National Geographic magazine has a lengthy section on the white Spirit Bear. These rare animals have been photographed in beautiful, moss-thick rain forests on British Columbia’s north coast, PrincessRoyalIsland and GribbellIsland.As I read the articles and appreciated the photos, I kept saying to myself, “If only these were of bigfoot.”Most people, as much as they desire it, will never glimpse the spirit bear in the wild; I, likewise, believe that this is the case with bigfoot: the majority of us will observe bigfoot only in print and photos.
I believe that we already have photos and videos of bigfoot on the Internet, in books etc. But the weeding out of the authentic from the dark-shadowed blobs that resemble these animals and the many deliberate hoaxes seem to be an impossible challenge. Indeed, the Patterson film is still to this day being debated as to whether it is real or a well-devised hoax.
Do you find yourself thinking as I do about bigfoot?That would be, “Why am I so interested in the animal?” A day does not go by that I don’t ask myself, “Why do I even bother with my newspaper column, my online bigfoot magazine, my books.” (Please do remember, the column, the blog and books would not be possible without my husband’s help, Christopher Perry.)
I do know one thing, and that is the natural world is a fascinating place. And don’t we appreciate those that take to the wild with camera and share their photos? Until next week, 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!
