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
From time to time on our online bigfoot magazine, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, we will ask a question about the limping bigfoot that is spotted once in awhile in Douglas County, Oregon. The question is: Has anyone heard news of the animal?Last week, a reader of Ballyhoo said that there was scanty news of an accident on hwy 38 near ScottsburgPark.
A large truck was reported to have swerved to miss something in the road and drove off the road in its attempt to avoid whatever it was. If you know more about this accident, we would appreciate that information.
The readers of Bigfoot Ballyhoo, and this newspaper column, enjoy any information about bigfoot. You can leave a comment on Ballyhoo, write a letter, or call this paper and leave a message for the Perrys. (Ballyhoo’s web address is www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com. You may write a letter to Perrys P.O. Box 334, Sutherlin, Oregon.)
If you are a reader of Bigfoot Ballyhoo, you know that on weekends things of interest are included on the site that children may enjoy. I don’t know if children are truly interested in bigfoot or are scared witless at the thought of such a large animal in our forests.
What I do know is that parents should discuss with their children the possibility of bigfoot’s existence. And that is especially important if the family enjoys recreating in the forest, since it has been noted by a few bigfoot researchers that bigfoot is drawn to the musical voices of children. It is certainly normal to be cautious of bears, mountain lions, some snakes and several smaller animals that we know exist in the forest. If this huge animal, bigfoot, exists, then, it is very important that all forest users be told about it.
Generally speaking, bigfoot seems to be leery of humans and the consensus is that bigfoot keeps to his place in the deep forests.
However, from the many and varied stories accompanying these sightings over the centuries, anything could be possible, if the sightings can be believed.
If you think you’ve seen a bigfoot, please tell us about it. We encourage you to be proud that you’ve seen a bigfoot, for very few people have. The rest of us will have to be content with your experience, so don’t be stingy, share!

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!
