Category: Bigfoot Research

Okay much to get to today…

First a shameless plug. Squatchdetective Radio is back and we’re having a ton of fun talking Bigfoot. The REAL Bigfoot. Not what we’re about to talk about here, which is the break down of fact versus fiction. We have an ambitious show schedule, and all can be seen at .

Join us Sundays,  9PM EST on Blog Talk Radio!!!


Old Stories from a hoax site continue to plague the noobs

Yes here we are again talking about Linda Newton-Perry’s Bigfoot Ballyhoo. The woman who refuses to see any side other than her mostly phony stories on Bigfoot on her website.

Let’s start with the Miller Document. Well we wrote something on the Miller document sometime ago here:

HA Miller

Yes we know the HA Miller, the alleged writer of the document was not the gentleman pictured above because the document, is dubious. Why is it dubious? Where is the actual document other than what is printed on a site know for its hoaxes and other unverified claims?

Here’s the big highlights:

  • H.A. Miller MD, Ph.D existed. But the one suggested graduated Forestry and Med School long before 1930.


Capture 4

Now on to Jerry Lustin:

Hello, I’m Jerry Lustin and was among the guys who found the giant creature in November of 1962. Bill emery has asked me to write a short comment on this site. I have never wrote anything in my life so bare with me. 


                                                                                     – Bigfoot Ballyhoo April 7th, 2010

This should say it all…. we found this at: and it was uploaded in July, 2006.


Oh and by the way, the person her site is dedicated to… “The late Dale Saxton,” you know the logger?

dale 2

Well he was there too in the album with Buzzy’s picture, except, this guy is a fisherman, and in the background (which is blurred on LNP’s pics and reversed) you can see the Salmon Charter schedule.


Now what makes me bring up this babble once again, because some the noobs, perhaps trying to make their mark, by exposing this “ground breaking” material, again have brought attention to this garbage, without questioning. Without, cross checking sources.

I challenge anyone to crosscheck this source of the Miller Document, Jerry Lustin, Dale Saxton, the ESP Team, Big Clyde (another Newton-Perry hoax) that originates from a source other than Perry’s Bigfoot Ballyhoo Blog.  

In truth she is more of a serial hoaxer than Rick Dyer albeit far less cunning. I can’t keep count at this point.

Sasquatch Ontario

People over the years have asked me the validity of the YouTuber by the name of Sasquatch Ontario, run by a Mike Patterson.

I have never really investigated their claims or audio, but I was dubious of what I heard.

Seems that over the last couple of years information has finally surfaced to firmly put Sasquatch Ontario into the hoaxer category.

Of course now its a government conspiracy and Bigfoot is an alien..yadda yadda.

This says it all:



And Darryl did provide a sample of that voice, and we played it last week on Squatchdetective Radio. (3/11/18). Case closed, no matter what Patterson has to say now.

And on a positive note:

Spoke with an eyewitness last week about a good visual sighting while driving. Sent some team members out who agreed seems very credible. Soon as the soon cover gets to going, we’ll be on it!

Till Next Time,



From time to time in the Bigfoot research arena, we for years are continued to be deluged with video we have seen time and time again. Often having us dust off old files to again retell the debunking or the truth in the subject matter.

Some of the “Noobs” often would like to argue with the facts long established, sometimes decades old. Instead of taking the long procedural approach many researchers took the “Pre-Social” media age somehow some of these new folks want to reinvent the wheel.

Okay fine, but often we see leaps of faith because the evidence used in the original investigations has since long been removed or deleted from existence.

I have seen that in the Bannon Bigfoot photo hoax several times over.


Mind you this video came out in the late 2000’s. However a relative new person in 2014 did a video analysis (long since removed).


“A closer look reveals this video might be the most impressive Sasquatch footage ever…”

                                                              Anonymous poster Dec. 3rd, 2014

See again, a video, photo or audio is only as good as the story behind it. This is where a lot of the newer folks go wrong. The same way years ago Facebook FindBigfoot went wrong.

To take a piece of video, photo or audio on basis alone, without the well documented story behind it you  have nothing. It defies the investigative process and it defies the scientific process.

This had long been researched and was found to belong to an unestablished film maker, by the name of Shawn Bannon, who once owned a production company by the name of StudioDrome. While on the face the videos and photos may look fascinating, the story of how he came about the video and photos were very scant aside from being out in the forest with friends.


Shawn Bannon

Although personally I did not investigate this, I publicly stated my opinion, and again I emphasize my opinion, that the evidence was a studio production because the pictures specifically looked airbrushed or altered in some manner and story and the willingness to communicate with researchers was a bit weak. (Much in the day before FotoForensics). And usually my gut is a good indicator and their are times you do have to fight that gut instinct, but not in this case.

As it turns out after much debate and conjecture, and evidence against this being real, Bannon released some of the documentary on Vimeo in 2014, very clearly stating the Sasquatch in the video and photos were not real.



Despite Bannon “coming clean” in 2014, it does not take away the fact for years he propagated the media as authentic.

Editor’s note…. What the new folks have to do is use the old analyses as a starting point. Find flaws in it if there are any that stick, and go from there. Not just arbitrarily take the evidence and go at it like it has never been looked at before. Does that create a bias? Perhaps, but as mentioned above some of the evidence available then, may not be available now. Check it’s history and fact check yourself and source your material. And it is okay from time to time be wrong or take a misstep. Freely admit it, we are human after all.

 Fast forward to 2018

Now the matter at hand, as an Alberta, Canada video has resurfaced and now let the series of misinformation begin.


Posted on January 18th, 2018: 

Sun Post pt 1

Sun Post


Here we have an article being propagated by a UK news source, and there are now a couple stating this video was recently filmed on January 5th, 2018.

In reality had there been some due diligence, the YouTube site Modern Galaxy properly sourced the video and never made the claim it was filmed on January 5th of this year. The original link was posted right below the video, all one had to click on “Show More.” 

Mod Gal 1

Mod Gal 2


The fact is the video was uploaded originally to a YouTube user site by the name of “foxrf600” on January 27th, 2014.

Canadian BF Video post


No surprise it was the last video uploaded to the account and only one other video had been uploaded to the account in 2010. Since the Homepage of the account has been edited to not include the “About” section, there is no way to send this user a message.

No previous videos other than the one on the account to me makes it very suspect. May have been an old or forgotten account, hence the one earlier video. But none afterwards makes everything seem to me the person wanted to remain anonymous.

Which leads to the next question, which I will answer.

Doesn’t a witness deserve anonymity?

Answer: Yes, absolutely, but if they wanted anonymity, why the hell post it on YouTube?

Well its one of those inconclusive things. On merit the video looks like it may be possible, although there has been internet exchanges that the wording by the witnesses seems a little, “prepped.” Some claim though it seems authentic.

Who knows at this point, because go back to my earlier statement: A video, photo or audio, without a story behind it, other than a cursorily posted description as the one above, is WORTHLESS. IT’S NOT EVIDENCE, IT’S NOTHING!

Usually videos with such vague descriptions such as the one above generally tend to fetter out as nonsense anyway. Don’t know for sure in this case, but just stating the norm.

Till Next Time,


Since Todd’s release on Netflix, for the new folks…here’s a little Todd Standing refresher with some new stuff added at the end.

                 9130212_origmissingman (1)

Sylvanic 2005

The Natives call it Sylvanic?? That term comes from”Latin” so that is extremely unlikely.

And the long since removed Sylvanic video #1:

Let’s not forget the Toddster ran a production company, and called for actors shortly before Sylvanic Video #1.


Ad requesting actors, same phone number as Sylvanic’s registry

muppetmuppet face

Muppet face debunked via flaw on nose.

Let’s not for get good ole “Blinky.”



The photo analysis of “Blinky.”

Being accused by a “Standling,” of taken a photo cap and manipulating the info… when in reality I got the picture via the media who did not alter it, who in turn got it from Todd.


And finally some analysis of the TS “Survivorman footage:” Short but sweet and to the point:

                    TS FootTS Rght Foot

(Above) Left foot, right foot…no wearing on the souls of the feet. That equals either costume feet or shoes.

Till Next Time,


Hi gang, it’s been some time since I have written. It has been a busy year not so much in the Bigfoot world but my personal life and all for the good. Once again I am a Licensed Private Investigator and am in process of launching an Investigation agency.

My field teams to the East and West have been working their areas and developing new areas and am excited at the possibility that spring 2018 will bring us some great results not seen since that of 5-6 years ago.

New equipment is in and will be using to enhance our coverage of our field team and looking forward to some more field testing of the said equipment.

I have laid low because the vitriol in the Bigfoot “Community” has been at an all time high not seen in a long while. My efforts are geared to the more positive aspects of research now, but as usual some negative creeps in and something I feel necessary to bring to the light of folks.

I write much about hoaxing, because I feel an educated public assists us in our search. Most recently, a relatively new group called the East Texas Bigfoot Hunters, put a post, on what is becoming the bane of the community’s existence, their Facebook page, this post.

Ohiny post

Note the wording on the post and I would like to flag some very key verbiage:




This was followed by a second post eleven minutes later:

second post

Note more of the verbiage:




Well to many of us that have been around a while this photo has been popping up over the last few years or so, known as The “Greenbrier Video,” so it was no big surprise and was obvious this was a hoax.

So when people started to question the picture that were in the know, particularly researcher Daz Brown and confronted, how quick the story changed and the pointing of the finger to the alleged anonymous submitter of the “picture.” Prompting a change in the story.


reply 2

Note the wording in the verbiage:



Seems to be a little discrepancy from what was said in the first two posts to now this explanation. They went from reviewing hours of footage, to still examining footage to now photo just emailed. Also note that “the property owners,” has become the property owner.

This fits perfectly with most of the stages of Guy Edwards, “Stages of a Bigfoot Hoax:”

  1. The Announcement
  2.  Defensiveness or Attack of Critics
  3. Postponement of Evidence
  4. Postponement of Evidence Again
  5.  Claim, you are a Victim of a Hoax.

We see the Fifth Stage very clear in their last post about the picture:


Some may say, “Well they got fooled and excited and posted it too quick.”


Now look at the statements in the reply and the post regarding this. Here’s my concerns.

First, in their original post, they stated they were looking at “hours of footage.” Footage means video. That changed to pictures this anonymous property owner had “emailed them”

Second, “It took us almost no time to bust this person…”  BUT “After being up most of the night working and examining these photos.” 

Third, They didn’t post at all they busted the property owner, not until  Daz Brown came out and told them the evidence they were presenting as their own was a hoax. Again this was BEFORE ANY POSTING BY ETBH claiming it was a hoax. Which should have taken them no time at all and nothing would have been posted had they just Googled the image. Seems like they are trying to say THEY busted it. Wrong.

Third, they still want to meet with the property owner because the area has great potential….WHAT??

In their post clearly shows a VIDEO PLAYER with the same length of video:

vid player

More to the matter of fact, we see the exact video player here with the same time stamp in The Paranormal Review’s YouTube Page posted in 2014:

YT Cap

So it was very obvious this was a screen cap, which they had said they caught after monitoring their game cams.

Why wouldn’t they know what terrain is in their shot to begin with? Please don’t tell me that you let the property owner set your cams up as an excuse because that doesn’t necessarily wash with me either.

May I be remiss to address the old excuse “We were hoaxed,” to remember the 2005 episode of C2C radio, regarding a bigfoot capture where a gentleman from Menlo Park stated, “We have scientists looking at it right now,” only to be days later using the same excuse.

In another post they talk about using “due diligence.”  Well said due diligence, would normally dictate, that before posting such amazing evidence and claims, that due diligence would be done FIRST.

Seems to me more due diligence was done on T-shirt and decal designs.

And it is ironic, that the news article they were featured in also had two other characters profiled on this blog, the very gentleman from Menlo Park, and Bob Garret.

Common sense tells us what this really is. Well that’s the way I see it anyway, but the reader is the real jury.

Till Next Time


Here’s a  thought for researchers and one too often we don’t think about.

What if you come across an actual “nest” or properly coined a bedding area of a Sasquatch?

What is you come across blood or a stool sample?

Aside from following good forensic collection techniques and scene isolation and investigation, some of which can be found here at the Squatchdetective University investigation page, one must consider the biohazard impact of what sample that can be left behind, especially if fresh evidence is collected.




Many years ago as a I was working my way becoming a medic, one of the many elective courses that were offered was an infection control course, which of course opened our eyes to the dangers of having open wounds, or mucous membranes being exposed to material which could infect our bodies, in some cases having severe and or long term effects.

We must remember, that especially in the animal kingdom and within the order of primates, certain evolutionary adaptations have occurred that may leave one genus immune to a virus or bacteria which leaves another vulnerable to.

Even across the same types of genus, living in different locations certain environmental resistances to biohazards can by happenstance, take for example the toll smallpox had in the early Americas on the native peoples.

The introduction of new viruses, bacteria and diseases unbeknownst to common medical practice can occur as well. Not only did we bring small pox to the Americas, but conversely Syphilis, was brought to Europe due to exposure from the Americas. Also note that Yellow Fever, was once indigenous to Africa, travelled to America thanks to the heinous slave trade.

Exposure to germs at a young age, as many Europeans living in dense cities at the time, had exposure to rodent germs, which in the Americas, did not. Much like the way they are trying to combat allergens, by introducing foods like peanuts, in small doses in toddlers and small children to build natural tolerances.

There are certain primate diseases though may not be common to Homo Sapiens (modern humans) but also within the order itself. There are also strains of disease that old world primates, versus new world primates may have a resistance to and vice versa.

Getting back to our Sasquatch issue, leads to many hypothetical situations. First and foremost, communicable disease is not just limited to a specific order set like primates. They can jump orders. The rat, (Order Rodentia) certainly was responsible for transmitting smallpox and bubonic plague throughout Europe causing the dreaded pandemics of such. Of course, one of the biggest order jumpers we hear about is rabies.

Now we can speculate all day long, what disease can be communicated on either side, but it is just that; speculation.

So here’s some simple things to carry in the field, to be mindful of the slight possibility of such contaminants.

Carry a small biohazard kit. It doesn’t take up much space or room on your person, and there is no need for a high tech respirator, especially since an airborne pathogen is unlikely unless you come face to face with Ol’ Hairy.




But protecting the mucous membranes of your mouth, and nose is important, so a simple mask will do.

The beauty of this kit is not only will it most likely keep you from becoming contaminated by biohazard, but it will keep you from cross contaminating potential DNA evidence. So it works two fold here.

Finally you also want to keep on hand some post collection products, such as hand sanitizer, and eye wash, which should be part of your field first aid kit.


                             sanitizereye wash


The biggest thing is, both before and after of inspection and collection of any biological or DNA evidence, wash up both before and after to stop the contamination either way. 




Not only is this for our own safety, but it also keeps our evidence safe. And please note…DO NOT KEEP DNA evidence in plastic baggies.

Plastic bags retain humidity and can quickly degrade the viability of the evidence. Biological evidence should be kept in paper bags!!

Let’s keep safe out there this Spring, Summer and Autumn!!!


Till Next Time,
