Another One... Are They Getting Better? Or Worse?

Recommended Posts

Using "Patty" as an example, you can see that the body ratios differ. I'm not at saying this is legit... But, how do we know that there aren't other species out there? Maybe even some that come closer to that of a human? I've heard reports of them having bald heads. If you upload the "I think I saw a Skunkape" video, and analyze it frame-by-frame, you will see that it has a completely bald forehead. I don't know if this is a hoax, but the way in which it breaks-away the cypress is impressive, to say the least. I'm quite familiar with cypress, and you don't just go breaking pieces off, as you see in this video clip...

This has an entire thread on it. It was likely a promotional stunt done so that a short-lived TV show could investigate that particular incident.  Unquestionably a hoax.

67Mopar,

 

Didn't mean to be snippy, although I know my response sounds like it - I was headed to dinner so just threw up something short.  The video you posted, however, does have a dedicated thread from around the time that it came out.  It got bumped down below somewhere.  There is a lot of good group investigative effort in that thread, so I hope you go find it.

I'm going to disagree with you on it being a hoax. The piece of cypress it breaks-away from the trunk is substantial. You don't just walk up to a cypress, and start breaking pieces away from it... Especially in a sitting position. It looks like it could be scraping something from inside the trunk, possibly to consume. 

 

It's rare that you find so many YT posters being in-favor of an actual Sasquatch. Check the majority of proponents in the comments section below the YT video.

I remember the thread, I just don't remember any conclusions being reached. I have no memory of discussions about a movie.

 

It was an interesting one, but I have no idea how to find it now. I must have been a few years back.

Here is two of the stabiliztions I did on that thread. There were other stabilized sections that others did in that thread.  It would be one of the better hoaxes assuming that is what it was though that isn't really saying much.  I was impressed with what it was apparently doing like seemingly munching on mycelium and ripping apart a tree, better acting than we normally see in those sorts of productions.

Definitely very unusual behavior for a hoax: apparently munching on mycelium, tearing chunks from trees; requiring creativity beyond the norm. It seems to be a very unusual way to stage a hoax - why would a hoaxer even think to show such behaviors?

 

Thanks Bob Zenor

Yep, that's the thread - thanks BZ.  There is information on the TV show at the end of the thread.  I'm sure that not everyone reached the same conclusion that I did but there are a fair amount of red flags (or at least yellow cards) if one reads through the entire thread.

 

But that thread reminds me - can members be banned for bad puns?

Excellent! At first, the head appeared to have (and may still have) a sagittal crest. On further study, it's actually bald to the top of its head. The way it snaps that piece of cypress off from the trunk... This is not a man in a BF suit.
