It didn’t really need to be said, but I’m glad it was. I reported on a supposed video of Bigfoot in North Carolina last week, and pointed out how fake it looked. According to this article, The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO.net) has now debunked the video of a supposed Bigfoot crossing a road, dubbed the “knobby” Bigfoot.
Digital News Report – A five second video of bigfoot scurrying across a road in North Carolina has nearly 2 million views on YouTube (see video below).
The user, knobbylives, shot the footage on the Golden Valley Church Road, Shelby, NC on Tuesday, March 22, 2011. The creature shuffled across the road and went into the woods, according to the poster.
“We later took photos of feet prints in a freshly plowed field”, Knobbylives said.
The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization says the video is fake. “The costume is so bad that the cameraman had to blur the picture”, the research center said. “YouTube is chock full of hillbilly masterpieces like this.”
But knobbylives claims it was a bigfoot. “At one point in the video it made a snarling growling sound and looked back at me”, the original video poster claims.
The video is so blurry and the gait of the creature looks so fake, that the BFRO really had no choice but to call this a fake. But it’s good to see paranormal research organizations that actually call shenanigans when it’s appropriate. So many groups out there are so quick to call every strange light a UFO or every illuminated dust particle an “orb.” The search for good Bigfoot evidence continues, apparently.
