Now, black bears don't live in that area... but we figured there could be a straggler from either Seminole County north of us... or Polk/Highlands to the West.... so we didn't stick around to look any more.

This was before I armed myself.

Anyway... the only thing other than a bear it could be.... was the skunk ape.
Hmm...very interesting.

Get you a camera and get some shots - I bet you could make a bundle off a decent pick of a Florida Skunk Ape.

If I ever decide to go back to Florida to visit, I will do my best. Might be easier to catch a Montana sasquatch though.

The key indication that you are really seeing Bigfoot is that his image will be blurry and out of focus.

Scientists tested 30 hair samples that supposedly came from Bigfoot, Sasquatch or other Yeti-like creatures: There is still no DNA evidence to prove that the storied creature exists.

The hairs matched the DNA of bears, horses and even a porcupine, but not the reclusive ape-like Bigfoot. The scientists, however, did not come out entirely empty handed. They may have discovered a new species of bear, or possibly a previously unknown cross between a polar and brown bear, according to USA Today. “The DNA in both hairs matched genetic material from a polar bear bone discovered in 2004 in the high Arctic as part of a separate effort,” USA Today wrote. “The bone was dated to more than 100,000 years ago.”

“I cannot say that the sasquatch or related animal does not exist,” study co-author Michel Sartori told USA Today. “But at the moment I have no evidence of the existence of these creatures.”

Sartori, an entomologist at the Museum of Zoology in Lausanne, Switzerland, and his co-author Bryan Sykes, who is a human geneticist at the University of Oxford, kept an open mind with the project.

The samples of hair collected and tested turned out to be cows, horses, dogs and six samples were actually American black bears.

The results of the study were published this week in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.

Though it’s a blow to diehard Bigfoot believers — including one man, Derek Randles, who contributed hair to the study — scientists are treating this as they would with any scientific hypothesis.

Norman MacLeod, of The Natural History Museum in London, was not involved in the research itself, but did write commentary that accompanied the study. He explained, ”The proper scientific point of view is not to dismiss any hypothesis out of hand but simply to subject it to testing.”

Thirty-six years after the fact, Bob Heironimus’ conscience finally caught up with him: He confessed to having donned a gorilla costume and appearing in the famous 1967 footage of Bigfoot.


1967 footage of alleged ‘Bigfoot’ creature

“It’s time people knew it was a hoax,” Heironimus told the Washington Post.

For decades, the grainy film clip has fueled study and speculation about the existence of a large mysterious creature in the Pacific Northwest.

“It’s time to let this thing go,” he told the paper. “I’ve been burdened with this for 36 years, seeing the film clip on TV numerous times. Somebody’s making lots of money off this, except for me. But that’s not the issue – the issue is that it’s time to finally let people know the truth.”

The Post reported Heironimus makes his official confession in a new book, “The Making of Bigfoot” by paranormal investigator Greg Long. The author says he spent four years investigating the 60-second film and the people behind it.

Long traced the Bigfoot costume to Philip Morris, a North Carolina gorilla suit specialist, who says he sold it for $435 to an amateur documentary maker named Roger Patterson (who died in 1972), according to the paper.

The hoax was staged near Bluff Creek in Northern California, according to Heironimus.

“Patterson was the cameraman,” Long told the Post. “They made a gentleman’s agreement that Bob would get in the suit and walk in front of the camera for $1,000.”

Heironimus’ story is a bit different.

“I was never paid a dime for that, no sir,” he said, adding, “Sure I want to make some money. I feel that after 36 years I should get some of it.”

The news doesn’t change the view of an open-minded Jane Goodall, a well-known primatologist.

“She’s spoken to people whom she respects who say they have seen one of these hominids,” said Nona Gandelman, an aide to Goodall, according to the report. “And to many other people she respects who have heard strange calls they thought were made by Bigfoot. As a scientist, she has a very open mind about this and has yet to close the door on the possibility.”

An associate of the deceased filmmaker is challenging the veracity of Heironimus’ story. The Post says it was contacted by Tom Malone, a Minneapolis lawyer, working on behalf of Bob Gimlin, an associate of Patterson’s.

“I’m authorized to tell you that nobody wore a gorilla suit or monkey suit and that Mr. Gimlin’s position is that it’s absolutely false and untrue,” Malone told the paper.

These people claim they have DNA. It's hard to believe that something like that could be lurking around with out more evidence by now, even if there was a cover up attempt.

UPDATE! This man married a Bigfoot, although their marriage isn't legitimate in the U.S.
