She sounds very believable to me. The extra video footage isn't much good btw.



The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

If I recall, our friends at the BFRO looked at this and didn't find it credible.  Didn't their analysis indicate that it was most probably someone with a backpack?

Sounds very possible. Personally, I think it was a mistake to include that film footage. It's her story of the smell and close sighting which is of interest.

It raises a red flag with me when it's always the same person that has the encounters and the comments about "man moving into the wilderness" is hogwash.  Here in the Northeast, that was done 150 years ago.

Again, the blurry footage.

Is there some sort of bigfoot lense cover they all use? Is Patterson Gimlin the only nonblob image?

It is just so hard to believe no one can take a clear photo. What do footers think of the lack of unambiguous images? It isn't one or two it is just about all images, at least it seems to be. Yet, I can take decent photos with my cell.

How do they explain this? How can they defend it? And "every witness was scared (shaking) or moving in a vehicle or BF has some sort of powers that prevent clear images" doesn't fly either.  
Why wouldn't those who claim these images taken by others are  evidence,  be the least bit suspicious after all this time of ambiguous offerings.

Four teenagers in the woods sounds like at least alcohol could have been involved.  That plus the time between the experience and now would add to the possible inaccuracies of her telling. As far as the video goes she said they backed up. Where is the additional video of that? Why were they just driving along filming the roadside anyways?  Just hoping to find what they were looking for?

Are you kidding? They were all excited to have had a real encounter there. They've never been to a place that they didn't find Squatches.

They actually said the video wasn't credible, but still felt they needed to do a night investigation just in case.

The smell also fits with the recent Navajo cops pursuit of the yellow eyed Howler.

Given the description of the location, I would argue that a rotting deer carcass or similar type of roadkill is what they smelled.  Much more likely scenario compared to a bigfoot.

Hahahahahahah! So now Navajo cops are stupid too, huh? You know better, even though you've got no training, experience, oh, and you weren't even there!

I was referring to your original post - Rhode Island - and living in the general area, I do have some expertise in what stinks on the side of the road in the summertime around here.

But since you brought it up, could you share with us your experiences with the Northeastern United States or the Navajo Nation?

Enlighten us, where can we find a "qualified expert" for a creature that is yet unknown? Just curious.
