As we have spoken before about recycled photos and others laying claim to them, we have yet another tangled web of folks trying to push their way to the top for attention using recycled hoax photos. But who was really the one pushing their way to the top is the question?

In 2012 a The Bigfoot Evidence Blog shared a picture of an alleged Sasquatch from Happy Camp California allegedly along the Klamath River.

The above picture had been debunked by a researcher named David Timmons clearly showing an obvious hoax submitted to the Bigfoot Evidence Blog which they clearly noted their suspicions in the last sentence of the article.

What caused a stir  a few days ago was a post caught by Hoaxer’s Exposed Group, Darren Lee,  by PacWest Bigfoot.

As of this morning PacWest Bigfoot has removed the post post from site, but what made it more interesting was a group member of the page, claimed it was her photo!!! Both reference it as being taken in Washington State, but as we see from the original claim it was allegedly taken in California.

I attempted to inquire as to how the original poster got the photo, but it seems she decided not to answer, which I find highly suspect.

What is most condemning of the PacWest Bigfoot post, appears to be an embellishment of the alleged submitted story.

What we see is a hoaxed story behind the post of the hoaxed picture on the PacWest Bigfoot Facebook page.  from the person that originally posted, is up in the air.

It is noted, on the PacWest post it as did with the individual posting the hoaxed pic stated the location was Washington, and a male subject as the submitter. Matter of fact, the original source of the hoaxed photo dating back to 2012 stated the picture was from a female from Happy Camp, California. It is noted in the original source narrative, it went from a “her” to a “he.”

Also another interesting note is that in January, after numerous inquiries, PacWest Bigfoot, admits that what they do is for entertainment purposes. David the owner of PWB readily admits creating the back stories to Bigfoot encounters and does not want to be confused with what the really great researchers do out there.

 

 

So dear readers, be careful what you read or listen to out in cyberspace. Rest assured what we do is sometimes for entertainment, but it is always the truth, the good, the bad, and the ugly. We always strive, when possible, to source and verify. We will never knowingly put something out there untrue.

The effects of these types of programs on Bigfoot research will be the topic of a future blog.
