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.

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.”

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,


As many of you know, the entity known as Bigfoot Project Investments, formerly Searching for Bigfoot, aka Tom Biscardi and company, is offering a cool million for information leading to the capture or body of a “bona-fide” Bigfoot.



Bigfoot Project Investments CEO, Tom Biscardi

Their site states the following:

“To silence all doubters Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. is devoting all their resources and putting their money where their mouth is to prove it. That’s why we have issued this Bigfoot Million Dollar Bounty.”




But according to their latest SEC filing “all their resources,” according to their spread sheets, as of January 31st, 2017 is, wait for it…. $36K and change. Not even “Fifty Large.”

BGFT Jan2017 Filing



The company also is showing a a $644K in  liabilities, up from the last quarter filing.

When it comes to investigating Biscardi and companies, I have a little experience:

Shameless plug time:


It is quite curious to see among the list of assets, among other things:



Of course two of these three items are nothing new. We saw them on the 2008 Searching for Bigfoot Business Plan, that Rick Dyer had gotten from Biscardi during the 2008 hoax. It wasn’t until August, 2008 before the rubber suit came into their possession.

This is material that was certified just a few weeks ago,



UPDATE: They are using a contest promotion company to offer the “Bounty.”

Currently, Bigfoot Project Investments trades for $0.65 a share.

RIP Dallas Gilbert

Sources have told me the extremely sad news that Ohio Bigfoot researcher Dallas Gilbert has passed away.

Dallas along with his best friend an research partner Wayne Burton, had been featured on their autobiographical documentary, “Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie.”


Dallas Gilbert

Sadly Wayne had lost his wife earlier this year, now he has lost his best friend.

Although some of Dallas’ evidence may not have stood up to some of the community standards, every once in a while he came up with some very interesting photos.

One thing that was always certain of Dallas however, he believed in everything he did and had a great big heart.

Every once in a while I would hear from Dallas and he was always so enthusiastic about doing research. That enthusiasm existed throughout his life and never strayed.

He will be missed. Our deepest condolences go out to his wife and family and to Wayne.

Keep on Squatchin’ my friend.

Till Next Time,
