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.

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
