Is the Dead Bigfoot Mystery not Solved? A Hoax created from a Hoax?



Last week, Karl Shuker brought the "Dead Bigfoot Photo" that appeared on Cryptomundo in 2006 "back to life", you could say. He had gotten some info from other cryptozoologists and figured out that the Bigfoot photo really was a fake, and was made from an old postcard photo of a bear. Some conspiracy came up on Cryptomundo afterward, and eventually Craig Woolheater got user captainnemo to admit that he had created the photo.

End of story, right?

Well, maybe not.

Karl has updated his original post twice so far with new information that has come in since he originally posted it. The first was on the 15th, and when he explained what had happened on Cryptomundo, and the second was yesterday(probably sometime later, because I didn't see it until this morning, but he does live in the UK, and I don't.

In the second update, Karl said he had received info from Bill Munns, who wrote the 2014 book When Roger Met Patty on the Patterson-Gimlin film. Bill is an expert in photo analyses and such, and said he believes that the Bigfoot photo and the bear photo are fakes. He said he believed the Bigfoot photo was made from the bear photo, but thought the bear photo was staged, because several lighting issues in the photo caused him to think it wasn't taken outdoors. He also thinks the photo(bear) has been retouched.
The bear photo -
is it fake, too?

Just like Karl, I'm not photography expert, so I can't really say much more about why the bear photo could be fake.

At the end of his post Karl says it doesn't really matter if the bear photo is fake or not, even if it isn't, the Bigfoot one is, sadly.
