#ThursdayTapes 5: Bigfoot Hunted by a Helicopter

#ThursdayTapes 5: On February 17, 2011, a video was posted to YouTube with the title ‘Bigfoot hunted by helicopter’. It was filmed at an unknown location and the original upload included the message “My husband and I took our kids target shooting. A helicopter was over our heads the entire time annoying us. We thought at first they were curious of why and what we were shooting. Later when we watched the video we noticed something that looked like Bigfoot running in the trees. We assume now the helicopter was hunting the Bigfoot.” Alright, let’s have a fun discussion about world governments destroying evidence of Sasquatch.

If you dig into the Bigfoot archives, accounts do exist of helicopters and armed agents forcing people to recant certain Sasquatch statements. Some of the most famous conspiracy theories are based around natural catastrophes, such as large fires or volcanic eruptions. Throughout history, a large collection of Sasquatch sightings have occurred in the area surrounding Mount St. Helens in the U.S. state of Washington. On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens experienced a catastrophic eruption, which was subsequently the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. The cleanup after the eruption was extensive and took years to complete. Part of the process included the removal of burned animal corpses.

Conspiracy theorists have latched onto an account from an apparent helper in the cleanup, who saw one pile of bodies that was covered and heavily protected by armed guards. It is said that the man witnessed the removal of the animals with a large net, in which Sasquatch limbs were clearly visible. Another, more detailed, account has surfaced surrounding a fire that occurred in Nevada in the late 1990s. In the story, a collection of firefighters saved a heavily burned Sasquatch and gave it medical attention. The account says that the creature was seen wandering on all fours and immediately gave up when circled. It was then taken away in a van and never heard from again. The person claims to have been debriefed and heavily threatened by government officials.

What to Look For

The clip shows a boy who is being taught how to shoot a gun. The kid starts out by firing a .22 caliber rifle twice, and then switches to the more powerful shotgun. Immediately following the explosion of the shotgun, a black figure can be seen running across the background. A helicopter can also be heard throughout the video, and when the creature is seen, the sound of the helicopter gets louder. The video has some heavy implications regarding the intelligence of the creature. The hominoid makes no movement until it is scared by the shotgun. It seems that the creature was anticipating the sound of a .22 rifle and was thrown off by the explosion of the high powered gun.

The frame by frame examination of the figure is interesting. After the shotgun is fired, it explodes with a quick lateral movement. Similar to other Bigfoot clips, the animal is fixed forward as it moves and displays peaking. The object appears to be extremely large and has some low hanging arms. It has a coned head, a uniform dark black color, displays lateral arm movement, and has an abnormal gait. The creature can be seen in a strategic and covered position, watching human activity. In the last couple frames of the video, the humanoid can be viewed switching from a two-foot stance to all fours.

This is an impressive sequence and consistent with other Bigfoot clips that show Sasquatch traveling on all fours when startled. As the object moves across the screen, a large and sprawling jump can be observed. The jump is reminiscent of two famous Sasquatch videos. The 1996, Memorial Day footage captured in Washington State and a video titled Bigfoot in the backyard by a stream. The backyard video is a 36 second long clip of a juvenile Sasquatch running. In the footage, the creature shows incredible athletic ability. In my opinion, it is one of the top ten clips in existence and would be included in this article, except for the fact that it is not readily available for view on YouTube or any other site.

    Interesting context–seems legit. He seemed really big for the distance he was at, but then if he’s like 8 feet tall, I guess that’s about right. Very cool.
