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.

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

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…

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.
