The Patterson/Gimlin Film

On October 20, 1967 at Bluff Creek, California, ex-rodeo cowboy Roger Patterson and partner Bob Gimlin filmed what appears to be a female Sasquatch traversing a sand bar in Bluff Creek. The film's authenticity has never been dis-proven.  In fact this photo has recently been reviewed again with the latest forensic processes only to discover more hidden details and accuracy showing this to be a primate and clearly not a man in a fake monster suit as some people claim.

Both men have always dismissed allegations that they had hoaxed the footage by filming a man wearing an ape suit; in fact, Patterson, who died of cancer in 1972, swore on his death bed that the footage was authentic and he had encountered and filmed a large bipedal animal unknown to science. Patterson's friend and business associate, Gimlin, has always denied being involved in any part of a possible hoax with Patterson and claims that he and his partner had encountered a real bigfoot. However, Gimlin avoided publicly discussing the subject from at least the early 1970s until about the year 2000 when he began giving interviews and making appearances at Bigfoot conferences.

Enhancements of the original Patterson / Grimlin BigFoot film -  by M.K. Davis on Dec 2005

  1. Frame by frame rendition - view
  2. Enhanced frame by frame and red-filter zoom of face - view

         Note: this is a female BigFoot - in 1967 what is the chances of two men faking a femal big foot?

Hernia on Leg of BigFoot

The Patterson footage, regarded as the most visible representation of what has been regarded as either Big Foot himself or merely a man dressed in a monkey suit, initially raised no red flags in the scientific community, which remained extremely skeptical of the existence of a large ape-like primate, as yet unidentified.

Now the scientific community is beginning to seriously re-examine this skepticism — scoffed at for decades — about the sasquatch, because of the magnitude and number of the new findings, according to Haijcek.

One was a bulge or hernia in the thigh of the creature as captured in high definition reproduction of a extremely small sequence of the Patterson footage. The bulge went undetected for almost 35 years, Haijcek said, and now some scientists are concluding because of the hernia, leg movements and stride of the sasquatch, it simply is not possible that what has been seen on film for 35 years was a man dressed in a monkey suit.

Mid-Tarsal Break

The film show the mid-tarsal break this joint in the centre of a primate's foot is one of the key points to the authenticity of it being a real primate. A recent discovery, this trait that allows a foot to bend the opposite direction of a humans, is native to only non-human primates.  This is fairly recent discovery  and according to Monster Quest less than 6 experts in the US would have had the knowledge to accurately create this generally unrecognized train in a primate's foot.  Yet after close examination of many big foot tracks, and the Patterson Film the big foot clearly have this trait.

How does this apply to the Patterson film? The walking motion of the big foot. The toes are planted on the ground, and then the rear of the foot hinges upwards before the foot lifts off the ground. A mid-tarsal break.

*** This can not be reproduced by a human foot without breaking the bones.

Body Ratio Analysis

Recent updates have shown using computer algorithms and scientific formulas the file was shot with a 15 mm lens.

This in mind Monster Quested had expert complete a full body ratio analysis.

The evidence clearly shows that it is impossible for a human to meet the position or length of the arms or legs because of the placement of human joints can not match the placement of the primate shown in the film.

The film was shot in 1967 on film - the continued proof of this being not a hoax is exciting.

Due to modern graphic design and photo editors is is easier and easier to attempt to fake photo evidence of big foot.

But in 1967 on film - that was not the case, and as we advance in film technology the more we go back over the film, the more it is proven to be real.

 

 

Foot Casts and Dermal Ridges

The father of Dermal Ridges study and artifact collecting of primate fingerprints and foot prints.  He at the time of reviewing the first BigFoot foot casting was a very respected fingerprint technician at Conroe Police Department and is highly regarded by agents of FBI, DEA, and other law agencies because of his techniques, skills, and ability to get finder prints where others failed.  He was also as stated below an expert in the field of finder prints of primates and considered today the father of dermal ridge study on the BigFoot as well as officially recognized primates.

 Since Jimmy Chilcutt has shown his research to the world, the standard is to check for dermal ridges or dermatoglyphics before even considering if the cast is real or not. This idea that casts contain evidence that a creature very different from a human being made them has been a source of fascination among researchers, and part of the de facto checklist of a foot casting being considered real or fake.

Jimmy Chilcutt had begun taking the prints of primates because he believed that he might be able to derive methods of getting more information out of human fingerprints if he understood them better. Then he saw Jeff Meldrum talking about a cast on TV. Intrigued, he contacted Meldrum and set up a meeting.

A skeptical Chilcutt arrived in Pocatello, Idaho, in April, 2000 and began studying Meldrum's collection. He first examined the casting Meldrum had shown on TV and quickly determined it to be a fake. The toeprints were actually human fingerprints. Meldrum turned him loose on the entire collection. The print ridges on the bottoms of five castings -- which were taken at different times and locations -- flowed lengthwise along the foot, unlike human prints, which flow from side to side, he said. "No way do human footprints do that -- never, ever. The skeptic in me had to believe that all of the prints were from the same species of animal," Chilcutt said. "I believe that this is an animal in the Pacific Northwest that we have never documented."

Dr. Grover Krantz and Jeff Meldrum need to also be recognized for their work in dermatoglyphics for primates and those now identified as unique patterns found in many BigFoot casts but not found in human or other primates.

Dr. Grover Krantz founded the field of taking BigFoot casting serious by professionals and his work continued by Jeff Meldrum as of today.

These "dermatoglyphics" are distinctly different for each species of higher primate, and sasquatch casts far removed from each other in date and distance have been found to share their own unique pattern.

Jeff Meldrum is now considered a leading expert in BigFoot research particularly BigFoot castings and has one of the largest artifact collections of BigFoot casts and related castings in the world.

  
 

DNA Evidence

Shows significant evidence such as DNA of a primate (snowgrove incident)

DNA collected at the cabin had almost human DNA but had 1 extra genetic marker shared with a chimpanzee. and was classified as an undocumented primate. 

Parts of this was also shown on the History Channel.

 Recent Sighting and Info

 

 
Where are you BigFoot?
 
Here is a list of leading websites tracking this primate.
 
The sighting for this primate is not only increasing in most areas, it is being discovered in countries all over the world.
History - more cultural history is being discovered talking about wild man, yeti, sasquatch from natives and archives.
 

My Profile - of what I imagine this primate to be like from the evidence reviewed:
 
BigFoot - Sasquatch / Wild Man / Yeti / Yowie / Yeren
  1. A primate cousin to human and chimpanzee.
  2. Has white skin instead of black skin found on apes.
  3. More human like skull shape then an ape with hair on top of head similar to humans.
  4. Primarily walks upright like a human with large feet.
  5. Omnivores - like humans what they eat is determined by their location and season.
  6. They have a tight social structure similar to ancient human nomadic tribes.
  7. They tend to migrate seasonally along wildlife corridors thus the intermittent sightings.
  8. They tend to be more nocturnal and seem to see well at night without any aid.
  9. They tend to stay as much as possible in higher rainfall areas and areas of lakes and open fresh water.
  10. I believe that they send individual hunters / gathers out which then brings what is finds back to the family / gang of other members.  That is why most sightings are of 1 BigFoot and not large groups.
  11. In comparison to a human, they are the perfect hunter in the wilderness areas, stronger, faster, more agile, and no need for advance technology to survice comfortably.
