The third #ThursdayTapes presents a video filmed in 2007, a man named Jim Holder and his son captured video of an unexplained hominoid walking in Estes Park, Colorado. Estes Park houses the headquarters for the Rocky Mountain National Park. Unfortunately, the clip was taken with a cell phone, which gives it poor viewing quality. The Bigfoot encounter was published in many Colorado newspapers with claims of a genuine Sasquatch video. However, upon release of the footage, Jim Holder and his family received a large amount of abuse over speculation that the tape was a fake.
In the months following the release of the clip, the Holder family gave a public statement indicating that Jim had been hoaxed. The claims were made because it had been suggested that the creature’s penis is visible in the clip and that it is circumcised. The fact remains that the characteristics displayed by the figure are consistent with the Sasquatch profile. Many of the movements are unique and could not have been performed by a human male, even with his junk hanging out.

What to Look For

The clip shows an auburn colored Sasquatch taking 12 steps through the forest. As the figure crosses the woods, it makes a sudden stop behind a tree. The movement is intriguing because it appears that the creature performs a skilled tree peak. In the slowed down footage, the humanoid can be seen dropping down and peering around the tree from a lowered position. It then quickly rises and continues to walk away.

At this point in the video, the long arm length and cupped hands of the Sasquatch are visible. It has a uniform color, a rise and fall step, a clear coned head and a visible mid-tarsal break. Similar to other Sasquatch videos, the creature displays tree hiding, peaking and grabbing. It has a clear compliant gait, which means that the figure walks with bent legs. As the front leg hits the ground, it is bent, unlike anything a human can perform. Before the footage was captured, Jim Holder described a collection of bizarre noises. He also reported looking into the creature’s dark shadowy eyes.
