Brian Vike believes he has photographic evidence that sasquatches exist.
No, he doesnt have a photo of a sasquatch, but he does have a photo of a very large footprint.
Brian Vike snapped this photo of what he believes is a sasquatch footprint in Moricetown, B.C. Photograph by: Brian Vike, For the Province
The Houston, B.C.-based UFO researcher has developed a soft spot for the mythical furry creatures, and got an excited call last Sunday from the remote community of Moricetown.
I made the 90-minute drive up there, and I was amazed at what I saw, Vike told The Province. Ive been on some of those turkey runs, when theres nothing to see.
But there were footprints, 17-and-a-half inches in length, that went on for a long ways.
The stride is three feet six inches from the front of the foot to the back of the heel.
More tellingly for Vike, the snow around the prints was untouched.
There were no tracks around to show that somebody was trying to pull a gag.
Vike, who tracks UFO sightings, got even more excited when he found blood in one of the prints.
Im sending it off for testing in Saskatchewan and Ohio. We also have a hair sample.
Sasquatches are allegedly ape-like beings that apparently are quite shy, since they dont seem to interact with humans much.
Like the yeti and the ogopogo, sightings are frequently reported, but no conclusive proof of their existence has ever been found.
On the other hand, conclusive proof that they do not exist does not exist.
They may be very good at hiding when they're alive, but if they exist, surely one corpse-- or even one bone-- would have been found somewhere?
Hmmm..., where’s the ruler in the picture, or a pencil or a cel phone, for size?
Besides, the print looks a bit funny. I would like to see the whole series, a long line of prints, at least.
What is that, three toes or what?
Yeah, but did he find the internet?
It looks like someone threw a cat in the snow.
If a sasquatch did step there, how come there isn’t any evidence of that branch being crushed?
You said — “If a sasquatch did step there, how come there isnt any evidence of that branch being crushed?”
Yeah, I know what you mean, if it was already there. However, I think that was his lame attempt at giving some indication of “size” — which actually fails, miserably to do so. That guy can’t figure that out. So, that’s why I said something about the ruler or pencil or cel phone... LOL...
Some people accept far less evidence than this as proof of a 6000 year old earth.
I thought the same thing until I realized that the branch probably fell from the pheonix nest directly above the print a few minutes after harry left.
I thought that one was already discredited....
Haven’t you read up on that one?
If they did exist, seems to me that Boone & Crockett would have a scoring method for them. Just sayin’.
Hey neighbour!! Good to “see” you. CO
What was Hillary doing up there?
I’m not too excited about this being a “Sasquatch”. I have listened to this my entire life in B.C. Also, the Ogopogo that they talk about is supposedly in the Lake that I live beside. They have had night dives with cameras the whole bit. Books written. Sightings. All to no avail. Don’t believe a word of it myself. CO
Better yet, where’s the flattened snow at the bottom of the print?
Its a hole in the snow of some kind, but it is most definately not a footprint.
A persons got to be nuts to buy this. Now, I have seen mermaids, but it’s tough to get a photo of one of those wonderful creatures.
But then, I am still trying to figure out things about God. I mean, why on earth would he have cursed this planet by creating democrats? I could have understood creating a couple hundred of them, as slaves, for cleaning out our zoo’s, but they have no other useful value.
Yeah, at first I wanted to say it sorta looked like it was “dug out” by something (maybe a person’s hand). That’s one reason why I said I would like to see the “series” of steps, and then see if there was consistency...
As it stands, right now, it’s not clear at all...
Where is the impression of the plant when it was pressed into the show?
I’m pretty sure that we have a creature similar to the Loch Ness monster in Lake Erie called Bessie. I keep my eye on things when I’m at the cottage, but, so far, no monsters other than my liberal neighbour who hates my American flag.
Nancy Pelosi’s face fell off?
With all that snow I’m wondering why he didn’t continue to track it...........
BC? What the he$$ you doing there?
Yeah, the other pic in the article looks like the center “toe” was made by someone’s boot. And there are no pics of the supposed “trail” of footprints leading off. This claim is not at all believable.
From the comments section of the article is a good question. Why didn’t the guy follow the footprints to see where they led and if there was anything additional he could gather as proof? Answer: Because it’s a fake claim.
where’s the video ?
Yeah, you know..., me and my camera... well.., I would be taking about 500 pictures about then. No, I’m not exaggerating; I’ve been known to do it. Of course, it helps that I have a digital camera with a few extra “cards” for those 500 pictures... :-)
But, really, I would take each footprint, for one thing, take it from several angles, for another thing — and then be following the trail off in the direction of where it was going, all the while taking pictures of my location and surroundings, so I could “mark it” for coming back later, too...
There ya go! I haven’t seen a better or more clear picture of that beast — ever!
Those edges are nice and crisp, too. It couldn’t have been made more than a few minutes before the pic was taken.
Also, in that deep of snow, there would be a drag mark.
As fakes go, this one wins the “Most Pathetic Attempt” award.
How deep is the lake? I saw the documentary about Ogopogo, but have they taken film of the bottom? If there were any creatures like Nessie (I’ve been to Loch Ness) or Ogopogo, you’d think at the very least they’d have found skeletal remains of these creatures lying on the bottom. It’s another case of people wanting to believe. I’d like to believe in these creatures, but I need a lot more proof than what’s being offered.
That sure looks like cousin Bill’s print...
lol....Bil does travel a lot.
Worst. Fake. Ever.
That sure looks like cousin Bill’s print...
