BURKE COUNTY, N.C -Researchers affiliated with legendary Big Foot Hunter Tom Biscardi reported to local media they were investigating a huge footprint in the woods near Highway 18, south of Morganton, believed to be that of a legendary creature called "Big Foot".

Bigfoot (also known as sasquatch) is an ape-like cryptid that purportedly inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term "sasquatch" is an anglicized derivative of the word "sésquac" which means "wild man" in a Salish Native American language.

Scientists discount the existence of bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a living animal, in part because of the large numbers thought necessary to maintain a breeding population. A few scientists, such as Jane Goodall and Jeffrey Meldrum, have expressed interest and belief in the creature, with Meldrum expressing the opinion that evidence collected of alleged Bigfoot encounters warrants further evaluation and testing. Bigfoot remains one of the more famous examples of a cryptid within cryptozoology, and an enduring legend.

Group members said they believe the footprint, which was discovered by a farmer, is real because it shows dermal ridges like a hand print and a mid tarsal break, which is evidence of a foot that bends in the middle, unlike that of a human.

The researchers set up cameras but said they didn’t find anything, according to local media sources. An internet search revealed a video posting relating to this story . See http://www.wsoctv.com/video/23966290/index.html

Interestingly enough this is not the first sighting of Big Foot in North Carolina (see Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFLyO2RWGms and http://www.myfox8.com/news/wghp-north-c ... 1132.story

That's a screen capture from the video below that was discussed on the old forum last March.

I remember it because it renewed my faith that Bigfoot really does exist.

Yeah, he takes an incredibly obvious hoax like this one, does an unneeded superficial investigation, puts it in his "Hall of Shame" then claims he busted the hoax.... :biggrin2

And from a 'friend', his website takes credit for busting the "Georgia Boys Hoax".

He really should have gotten to the party a little sooner.

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread... rolf
