The crew of Finding Bigfoot went down to Utah to investigate the 2008 video footing known as the “Sobe Bomb Bigfoot“. Back in 2008 a group of teenagers in Logan , Utah were making a sobe bomb down in a canyon and inadvertently caught a Bigfoot on camera while they were attempting to record the bomb exploding in a camp fire. FB/FB broke down the Bigfoot footage attempting to confirm the bigfoot on several points. Matt Moneymaker of Finding Bigfoot via Twitter confirmed that in his opinion the creature caught on film was definitely a Sasquatch. Here is the video breakdown done by FB/FB so you can determine for yourself if the available evidence is enough to prove that this is indeed Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
Law enforcement officer and BFRO investigator Jason Vogan recounts his encounter with a Bigfoot during a 2011 BFRO Expedition in Georgia. After being hit by a rock thrown through the woods Vogan claims to have seen the creature using night vision equipment as it stood behind a tree. They return to the location of the Bigfoot sighting to describe the sighting and retrace the steps of the expedition. I hope these guys are current on their kidnapping insurance because it’s looks pretty rough out there.
Latest Bigfoot sighting out of Minnesota. A farmer and his wife were walking in the woods north of Stillwater one July night, when they saw a strange animal, according to a new YouTube video. The couple thought they’d come upon a deer, but heard a “low odd sounding grunt,” and decided to get closer and see what it was.
“Doesn’t look like a deer to me,” the farmer explains in the set-up to the video.
The tape is described as taken “near the St. Croix river.” In the video clip the man captured , a large red-haired figure is seen passing through the woods for a single fleeting moment. It is an interesting Bigfoot sighting and in the video below it is broken down and zoomed in for better looks at the mysterious creature. Take a look at this Minnesota Bigfoot sighting and decide for yourself if its possibly a Sasquatch.
A 12-year-old Alaskan hunter tells the “Finding Bigfoot” crew that he saw an 8-foot bigfoot-like creature up close in a forest clearing. The show uses this computer-generated bigfoot as the boy describes his encounter.
For some viewers, Animal Planet’s new series “Finding Bigfoot” is a comedy: Did you hear that guy perform a bigfoot howl?
For others, including the show’s stars, it’s a drama of serious investigations into reported bigfoot sightings in Oregon and across the country.
Animal Planet executives may not care how people react to the show as long as viewers tune in. And they are.
Over the show’s six-episode first season, “Finding Bigfoot” has averaged 1.2 million viewers in its Sunday night premieres, making it among the top three series on the Discovery-owned cable network (“River Monsters” and “Whale Wars” are the other Animal Planet hits.)
Each episode features the four-member “Finding Bigfoot” team investigating images or video captured of the ape-like bigfoot , often followed by a night-time exploration using infrared cameras to detect heat signatures.
Occasionally, a computer-generated bigfoot is shown in re-created scenes.
Next week, Animal Planet will announce it has renewed “Finding Bigfoot” for a 10-episode second season to begin airing in early 2012. There are also plans for the network to air a two-hour special this fall around Halloween tentatively titled “The Squatchiest Place on Earth.”
Asked why the network would devote a series to a creature that’s yet to be proved exists, Animal Planet president and general manager Marjorie Kaplan deadpanned, “It doesn’t exist?”
This weekend’s season finale of “Finding Bigfoot” was filmed at Ike’s Pizza in Leaberg, about 20 miles east of Eugene on Highway 126. The episode, called “Behind the Search,” is a one-hour reunion special with the “Finding Bigfoot” team taking questions from an audience while recapping their six-episode first season, including an episode filmed in the Willamette National Forest.
The four-person team, led by Bigfoot Field Research Organization founder Matt Moneymaker, investigated a video shot by kayakers on the McKenzie River that appears to show a biped – a bigfoot? a human? – standing near some rocks on the shoreline. Moneymaker tends to see bigfoot everywhere, while field biologist Ranae Holland is the team’s skeptic.
“It is true that we felt if we were going to do the show that we have a skeptical voice,” Kaplan said. “She represents the viewer a lot of time,” said Keith Hoffman, “Finding Bigfoot” executive producer for Animal Planet. “Viewers want to see people who don’t just totally believe, although Ranae has told me she would like it to be true (that bigfoots exist).”
In the McKenzie River sequence, Holland quickly concludes the creature on the shore is not a sasquatch, but a human. Although it didn’t make it into the final episode, Portlander Cliff Barackman, the show’s level-headed educator (imagine the professor from “Gilligan’s Island”), said he agreed with Holland; he had previously researched and debunked this reported sighting at his website.
Barackman taught sixth grade and music appreciation at Cascade Heights Public Charter School in Milwaukie, taking a six-week leave of absence earlier this year to film the first season of “Finding Bigfoot.” He won’t return to the school in the fall because of his commitment to the show’s second season. He said students got a kick out of his interest in bigfoot.
“They absolutely loved it,” he said. “Some would say, ‘Mr. B., I don’t think bigfoot’s real,’ and I’d say they are but you don’t have to believe.”
Barackman, 40, was friends with two of the other three “Finding Bigfoot” cast members before he was cast on the show and he’s had his sights set on a TV gig for a while, previously appearing on A&E’ s “Bob Saget’s Strange Days” (for a sasquatch hunt episode) and on History’s “MonsterQuest” (as a bigfoot expert).
Barackman said he always had an interest in monsters as a child and was a fan of the 1970s paranormal TV show “In Search Of. …” At Cal State Long Beach, he spent time in the library between classes, pulling random books from shelves to read. Barackman said he stumbled upon a book of scientific, peer-reviewed papers about sasquatches, which ignited his interest in bigfoot. From there, he said, “It got worse and worse.”
He moved to Oregon three years ago, in part for the easy access to the wilderness for bigfoot expeditions. “When I looked at the climate and the cultural climate – the eccentric, weirdo-centered culture – I thought I’d feel comfortable having the opportunity to do gigs playing guitar, meet interesting people and have access to squatchy places,” Barackman said. “I go to bars and restaurants in Portland and I’m not bashful about bigfoot. I’ll ask people, have you seen a sasquatch or know somebody who has? And in Portland it averages one out of five people say yes.”
So, has he ever seen a bigfoot? Barackman said he’s collected footprint samples, recorded vocalizations and been screamed at from 40 feet away, but his only possible sighting was through a thermal camera during a “Finding Bigfoot” shoot in North Carolina. He takes criticism of bigfoot believers in stride on the show and in conversation.
“They can be as wrong as they want,” he said. “It doesn’t matter to me at all. The reality of the species does not depend on their belief nor does it depend on mine.”
This is a new Bigfoot video that has appeared from Kansas. The Kansas Bigfoot sighting is about one minute long and shows what seems to be a Bigfoot walking through a tree line in the distance. A family seems to be doing the shooting the video of the mysterious creature and can be heard talking as the “creature” moves from tree to tree. You can see quick glimpses of the creature in the distance.
The comments mad by the various family members sound somewhat authentic as to their surprise. The unusual feature of the creature in actual daylight may add a bit of credence to it but some believe it to be another hoax with someone in a gorilla suit. But the video is sure to be analyzed by members in the field of cryptozoology and those who specialize it film analysis. Kansas is not know as a Bigfoot sighting hotspot so this sighting is considered rare in that area.
