Former Bigfoot hoaxer pulls Mars prank

The Bad Astronomer, Phil Plait, exposes this one but it has a funny twist: Hoax site says NASA’s Curiosity rover found plastic beads on Mars. I got a note from my friend Jules at Geeky Pleasures letting me know that a hoax website has turned up claiming NASA found plastic beads on Mars. Let’s be…

Bigfoot “London footprints” declared a hoax

Back in February of 2012, we reported on a finding of a long Bigfoot footprint trail found in Eugene, Oregon. Bigfoot researcher, Cliff Barackman, as soon as he could, rushed to the Cottage Grove Reservoir, as researchers used 300 pounds of plaster to cast 122 tracks. At the time, Cliff (of the show Finding Bigfoot) said…

Big snake loose in Maine or is Wessie a hoax?

Cross posted from DOUBTFUL. Back in June, locals of Westbrook, Maine said they saw a large snake slithering around. After no sign of the beast a week later, a Westbrook police officer witnessed it eating something near Riverbank Park on the Presumpscot River. A second officer called in also saw it. From their Facebook page: On…

Nothing interesting happens in Canberra, eh? UFO hoax revealed (and it’s deemed ‘not interesting’)

There was really no story to cover when, on January 4, 2015, several news outlets reported on a video on YouTube, promoted on Reddit, that was getting attention. You see, UFO/portal/wormhole videos are decidedly uninteresting (or should be) because they can pretty easily be faked and ARE regularly faked. All videos and photos (of ghosts, Bigfoot, lake…

Bigfoot Captured breaks History: Channel continues to fake out viewers

WOW! History Channel pulled a “Mermaids” gimmick. Why would they sabotage their credibility? Oh wait, ever since it became the “Hitler” Channel a while ago, it’s been heading downhill. According to this review of their latest special program, Bigfoot Captured, a “shameful fake documentary” about Bigfoot, it’s hit rock bottom. Reviewer Jim Vorel of Paste Magazine takes the…

The scoop on the Roswell Slides: really pathetic hoax

Back in November 2014, we reported on a story from the UFO community – Thomas Carey told the audience at a conference that he had “smoking gun” evidence that extraterrestrials have been here – Kodachrome slides dated 1947 showing an alien. I don’t typically use Billy Cox as a source but he does note that people have…

Four-year Bigfoot research project in Oklahoma yields intriguing and unexplained results

Here’s a strange beast – a comprehensive report of a research study intended to document the apparent presence of native “wood apes” (popularly known as Bigfoot) in the Ouachita mountains of Oklahoma. The North American Wood Ape Conservancy consists of serious researchers who carefully plan their approach and document their findings. They have published a…

Todd Standing needs money for Bigfoot DNA testing

We’ve written about Todd Standing before, back in April. After that, he made a name for himself by riding the coattails of Survivorman Les Stroud and by being associated with Utah Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology at Idaho State University, Dr. Jeff Meldrum. While months have passed, oddly enough, nothing has changed. Standings evidence and claims are…

Will this new technology help find Bigfoot?

I doubt it. It’s not lack of tech that’s the problem. It’s far more fundamental than that. But will this new technology help spot a hoax quickly? That would be useful. Can MIT Help Solve the Mystery of Bigfoot? Matt Knapp thinks that Bigfoot research is a mess right now. Knapp blames the setbacks on…

Dyer’s tour of the Bigfoot body a bust?

Dyer having a hard time with his Bigfoot body tour: Is Bigfoot dead? As I noted to this reporter from Albuquerque where Dyer had trouble finding a venue and gave up, why should anyone wish to be associated with a guy who has “fraud” so predominantly associated with his name? […] we have the promise of…

Michigan dogman story is long line of hoaxes

There isn’t much background to the story of the Michigan dogman and there may be good reason for that. It’s a legend, it’s biologically impossible, it launched in the media as a hoax, continued as a hoax and, as these things go, people now see it all the time. Legendary Dogman seen in Ottawa County?…

Nebraska teen reports 5:30 AM Bigfoot on country road

Here’s an interesting Bigfoot report. While the authorities think it’s credible and it is presented as such, it does not mean the observations are correct or accurate. Teen’s hairy run-in with 7-footer probed as Bigfoot encounter. Stukenholtz, along with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, investigated a reported sighting of an unidentified “hairy” creature in…
