Cryptozoologist Richard Freeman thinks Bigfoot – Sasquatch or Yeti may be a surviving Gigantopithecus blacki
Richard Freeman is one of Britain’s few professional cryptozoologists. His interest in unknown animals reaches back to his childhood and he has had a long and varied career working with exotic animals. And recently on 31st of October the CFZ 2010 expedition left England. They will be exploring the Garo Hills in Northern India in search of the mande-burung or Indian yeti. The five-man team consists of team leader Adam Davies, Dr Chris Clark, Dave Archer, field naturalist John McGowan, and cryptozoologist Richard Freeman. John Downes will be posting updates at CFZ INDIA EXPEDITION. This promises to be an interesting adventure.
Some suggest that Gigantopithecus blacki did not in fact become extinct, and continues to exist as the Sasquatch and the Yeti. Gigantopithecus blacki could have crossed the Bering Land Bridge, the same way humans are thought to have entered the New World (Geoffrey Bourne, 1975, cited in Ciochon et al., 1990). So far, though there have been many alleged sightings, no indisputable physical evidence has been recovered. One is led to suspect that the question of Sasquatch (and related entities) is more for comparative mythology, cultural anthropology, or psychology, since an actual creature the size of Gigantopithecus blacki existing in numbers sufficient to qualify as a breeding population would not only leave physical remains, but would have an observable effect on their environment.
Fraud investigator now claims he has captured an image of Bigfoot!
A man that once worked as a fraud investigator claims he has captured an image of North American folklore. Mike Greene, a former chief of fraud investigation in New Jersey, claims he captured video of Bigfoot in the Uwharrie National Forest over a year ago.
“In the middle of the night, I was awakened by what I call, ‘Darth Vader’ breaths,” said Greene. Greene said he was able to capture a thermal image of Sasquatch that night.
“The image is the first comprehensive thermal image of a Sasquatch… even though I admit that it’s blurry,” said Greene.
In the video, Greene claims you can see a big creature come out of the woods and grab a candy bar that was set up to attract the Sasquatch. “It can’t be anything else, I mean, it literally can’t be anything else,” said Greene. Greene said many people have said the image is just a guy in a fat suit or gorilla suit, but he claims the thermal image proves it’s something different. “The heat signature – which is what you’re looking at…the heat signature would be completely different. It would be splotchy,” said Greene. “You could put a guy in a Bigfoot costume and fool night vision, because that’s just like a video camera. But if you put a thermal image on him, that’s going to look completely different.” After seeing the video, Greene was convinced he had captured video of the much-discussed creature Bigfoot. “Yeah, there’s no doubt about it,” said Greene. Greene admits that he, and the rest of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, are surprised there has not been better proof after several years of searching and many attempts to get a glimpse of the evasive alleged creature.
“We have, in the organization, maybe 200 game cams out looking for Sasquatches. We haven’t got one lousy picture of a Sasquatch, which doesn’t make any sense, unless you think that maybe these things are so smart that they either see the game cam,” said Greene.
Greene said there is no doubt he caught one of the rare images of the increasingly evasive creature. “Clear as a bell, absolutely unequivocally, no doubt what it was – to me, anyway,” said Greene. A majority of scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a legitimate animal, in part because some estimate large numbers necessary to maintain a breeding population. Greene said fossils of a sasquatch-like creature have been unearthed in China. He claims the creature came over the land bridge that used to exist between Asia and Alaska.
