Uhm? Yeah, that's my Bigfoot....foot. I dropped it out of my backpack while coming out of the woods. Lilly, be a sweetheart and give them a call and ask them to send it back to me. Please?

Sorry, no go...they said something about "finders keepers".

Ewww!  It's gross!  But I can't wait to hear the results of the DNA test.   Odd that the cut end of the appendage looks so straight, like it was one swing of an ax to chop that baby off, which could indicate another hoax or maybe a poacher.


I really want it to be real!!!!
but then again it might mean a footless sasquatch is hobbling around...that's sad :(

So, would that make him a 'Hopsquatch'?

A number of questions emerge. Why just a portion of one foot? Where is the remainder of the carcass? Surely, even if portions were carried off by smaller carrion eaters, there would still be substantial remains in the area. These would be extremely odiferous in the case of a large animal. The police do not appear to be treating this as "human remains" as there was no crime scene established. So, I might guess a bear foot. A hoax, maybe. Or, perhaps a hunter simply left remains after claiming the valued portions of a bear. Or, perhaps the remains of the elusive Chupacabra.

What if only the foot was carried away from the rest of the carcass?

Some sort of hyrax foot imo :clap:

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

Have to agree it does look like a bear foot to me too.

Bear paw....

COMPARISON OF BLACK BEAR PAWS TO HUMAN HANDS AND FEET

Apparently you can tell if it is a bear paw by flipping it over and if the ends of the fingers are gone, with deep grooved knuckles then it is a bear. Otherwise, the claws, which are attached to the tiny fingertip bones should still be there.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

And where is the rest of the decomposed bear body found by these 2 young boys a few days after the announcement of the $1m reward???
There was no reward offered for a dead bigfoot, only a captured bigfoot.

But yeah, they need to go over the area with rakes for about 100 meters in every direction and find the rest of the bear whatever it is.  The only indicator that it may not be a bear, and it's tough to tell for sure but it looks like it has toe nails, not claws.

I would like to think the medical examiner would be able to Identify a bears foot without spending hundreds of dollars on testing. That said, there has to be something about this foot that makes it seem worth researching...
