In #ThursdayTapes 8 A well known Sasquatch encounter was filmed in the U.S. state of Washington in 1996. It was captured by Lori Pate with a Hi-8mm video recorder. The clip is one of the most studied and scrutinized videos every taken. According to statements given by the witnesses, a series of loud vocalizations were heard for approximately five minutes prior to the figure being filmed running across the field. Before the clip begins, the humanoid was seen moving from the forest line to a position behind a large tree. Similar to other videos in this article, the slowed down analysis of the action is extremely important to help understand what is happening. It is not available on YouTube, but this included link has a clip with information provided by the Facebook Bigfoot organization.

What to Look For

The video starts with the camera panning in on a humanoid figure running across a large open wooded area. The creature appears to be moving at a fast speed and performs a large jump as it travels across the hill. A still image captured during the sequence is detailed. It shows a figure with a clear coned head, arms down to the knees, a brow ridge, gray hands and uniform black color. During the leap section of the video, it appears that the creature’s back leg performs a hyperextension of the foot, consistent with the mid-tarsal break and an animal that can pick objects up with its feet.

It appears that the humanoid has a compliant gait, with a bizarre looking walking motion. The compliant gait becomes visible when the objects front leg bends during a step. When people walk or run our front legs are straight. The figure runs with an up and down motion and displays some serious arm swinging. In the footage, the humanoid can be seen disappearing behind a hill for a short amount of time and then reemerging from the opposite side. It then continues to walk into the forest. A strange occurrence happens at this point in the clip. It seems that the figure’s size grows by a substantial amount as it enters the woods. With the enlarged video, many details of the last sequence become identifiable.

As soon as the hominoid is filmed emerging from behind the hill, it has a small object on its back, which appears to be a child. In a frame by frame analysis, the baby can be seen crawling up the larger creature’s back and standing on its shoulders, giving the original Bigfoot a taller appearance. The recovery of the child in the footage helps explain why the Sasquatch put itself at risk in open daylight. A recurring theme in many Bigfoot videos is the presence of a baby or family member. It has been determined that the figure in the Memorial Day footage is 5.3 feet tall.

#ThursdayTapes 7 shows a 2001 documentary; The Great North that was filmed in the IMAX format. The film is a representation of the famous Robert Flaherty documentary, Nanook of the North, which is a detailed account of the Inuit people who lived off the frigid landscape of the Arctic North. In Great North, Nanook’s grandson is the narrator. He takes the viewers on a great adventure through the rich majesty of the Canadian setting, along with the breathtaking and awesome landscape of the freezing, snow-covered environment. Great North looks at the long-standing traditions of the Inuit people, such as fishing and hunting.

The documentary was filmed near Inukjuak, on Hudson Bay in northern Quebec and also in Ontario. Great North has gained notoriety for a brief clip of an unexplained animal shown 9 minutes and 18 seconds into the film. The creature can be seen running alongside a herd of caribou as they flee up a steep hill. The animal appears to be a solid black color and has a gorilla like stride. The footage was filmed in Ontario, Canada, where gorillas and chimpanzees do not live. The video was captured with an advanced IMAX camera that has the capacity to record and display images at a far greater size and resolution than conventional film systems.

What to Look For

The scene in question shows footage of a great caribou migration. In the background of the shot, not far from where the caribou are running across a large stream, a black figure emerges from an unseen ditch and runs parallel to the ungulates for a short distance, before ducking down and disappearing from view. The creature can then be seen making a 90 degree turn to the left and traveling up the hill.

Similar to other Bigfoot videos, claims have been made that the original footage of the event has been suppressed from release. With the IMAX camera, it is possible to enlarge digital images with great clarity. Pictures of the creature could be produced with great precision, accuracy, and substantial detail. These images could then be shared with the public. However, the documentation of such evidence has not been released and may not suit the scientific world. Many different websites have identified the creature as a film crew member wearing a backpack who was discreetly positioned to direct the caribou herds. As the sun hits the figure, a much more detailed profile is made. As the creature drops out of sight, it can be seen touching the top of its head. The video remains controversial and could show a Sasquatch hunting for food in the great north.

#ThursdayTapes 6 shows one of the most well known Bigfoot videos was captured by Robert Pridgen, at Lembo Lake Campground in the U.S. state of New York. In 1996, a festival was being held at Lembo Lake, and a large collection of people gathered for camping and fun. One of the groups was filming around the fire and captured some bizarre behavior in the trees. The footage of the creature wasn’t discovered until six years after the event. In the clip, a figure can be seen lifting a smaller creature up into the tree. The larger object is on camera for 14 seconds, while the juvenile is visible for 44 seconds. The video gives a good analysis of the event and shows a stabilized version of the action.

What to Look For

The clip starts with a juvenile creature being lifted into the tree by a larger object. The figure can then be witnessed swinging in the tree and displays some incredible maneuvers. It can be seen moving around on the branches. After research was conducted, it has been confirmed that the smaller Sasquatch is approximately five feet tall. The most startling aspect of the clip is the creature’s long arms. No pets are allowed in the campground and the figure is out of place. The athletic ability of the animal is impressive. Many sightings of young Bigfoot have been reported high in the trees. However, the New York Sasquatch was the only video recorded until the 2010 Ontario, Canada incident. The clip is special because the action is not easily explained.

#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.

In todays 4th #ThusrdayTapes a video appeared on YouTube in October of 2010, showing an encounter with a large humanoid creature. The clip was discovered by researcher Chris Noel with only 34 views. The video was taken by a 9-year-old boy in the U.S. state of Georgia. After witnessing the figure in the woods, the boy pulled out his camera and began filming the sequence. He used an HD flip camera to document the event. The HD quality of the video makes the encounter special. The high resolution allows for clear enlargement. It was the second recorded Sasquatch sighting on the property and the video contains some important evidence that will help authenticate other Bigfoot clips.

What to Look For

The video begins with a black colored creature walking down a hill on the opposite side of the family’s property. The humanoid can be seen raising its arm and grabbing a tree branch. After the creature is spotted, the boy in the video yells out “Hey Bigfoot” and the figure disappears for a quick second, seems to make a quick peak around a tree and retreats up the hill. Another interesting aspect of the clip is that the family’s dog can be heard making loud noises in the background and is clearly distraught. The creature is consistent with the Sasquatch profile.

It has a uniform color, has a coned head, gray cupped hands, a clear inline step and a compliant gait. No scale measurements have been taken on the property. The most impressive aspect of the video is when the creature walks away from the scene. Similar to the Patterson-Gimlin video, the Sasquatch has light colored gray pads on the bottom of its feet known as Ostmans pads. The pads are one of the best pieces of evidence for the existence of Bigfoot and appear in many of the top videos. The term originates from a Sasquatch description made by a man named Albert Ostman in 1956, ten years before the first Bigfoot was captured on tape.

Because of the HD quality of the video, the walking motion is among the best ever captured. The figure has a knock-kneed inline step with a slight twist in the upstep, which creates an up and down type motion when walking. The movement of the Bigfoot is consistent with other Sasquatch footage. The mid-tarsal break is also evident, meaning the creature has a flat, but flexible foot. The mid-tarsal break gives the Sasquatch mid-foot flexibility. So, unlike people, it can lift its heel separately and grab objects with its feet. Humans are the only primates to consistently lack a mid-tarsal break.

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.

In the second installment of #ThursdayTapes we have a 2009 Russian documentary that was released on Bigfoot in Siberia. The film has become notable for the inclusion of a 3 second long clip that shows an unexplained hominoid. Siberia makes up 77% of Russia’s territory. The area encompassing much of the Eurasian Steppe, it extends eastward from the Ural Mountains to the watershed between Pacific and Arctic drainage basins, and southward from the Arctic Ocean to the hills of north-central Kazakhstan and the national borders of both Mongolia and China. The mountain ranges of Siberia have a long history of Sasquatch encounters and modern day sightings.

What to Look For

The video shows a large humanoid figure that strongly resembles the Sasquatch profile. It was filmed by an unnamed person. In the footage, the creature is spotted as the camera is moving away from the scene. The figure was not noticed in the clip until it was later reviewed. The object has a uniform color, a coned head, long arms, and a ridge down the spine with patches of no hair. Considering that the figure was not seen until a later date, it appears to display intelligent movement. As the camera is turned from the area, the Sasquatch then decides to walk away. The tape shows a quick sequence and has been highly criticized. However, the hominoid has the characteristic white feet and abnormal gait seen in other Sasquatch videos. It also appears to be walking with an inline step and is traveling along a strategic ridge.
