“I’ve been tracking and watching for Bigfoot,” May said. “I’m very curious, interested in that, and wanted to get footage on it ’cause I’ve ran across him a couple of times.”

The first time was in April of 2011, just before dark one evening. May was “kicked back, enjoying the hot springs” near the mouth of Ogden Canyon when he spotted something emerge from the bushes just across the river. It was black with a silky coat, and it moved quickly, never looking over at May.

“My first thought was, ‘My heck, there’s a gorilla escaped from the zoo or something,’ ” he said. “I thought, ‘What in the heck’s a gorilla doing?’ Then it dawned on me what it was.”

The only other time May has seen Bigfoot was about a month ago, in the same area. He says he likes to go to the hot springs late at night, when there are fewer people there. He was at the springs about 2 a.m. one night.

“A couple of nights something was breaking branches and throwing rocks in the water,” May recalls. “And I thought it was just some obnoxious people or kids or something in the canyon.”

On this particular night, however, he decided to investigate, thinking perhaps it was an animal. May was walking down the trail when he saw it, down in the trees by the water.

“I had the light on it, and I thought, ‘Oh my land,’ ” May says. “It was tall, it was big, it was big around — pretty good size. And it kind of looked back at me and I was just frozen. … So I just stood there with the light on it for a minute, and then I heard somebody across the way yell, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s a monster!’ or something. So somebody else had seen it.”

May has an avid interest in the subject and has seen Bigfoot twice before - both decent sightings (and quite similar to many other accounts of Bigfoot) if you didn't know about his rock-fossil...

So does his latest "evidence" now discredit his previous Bigfoot sightings? Why or why not? Interested in a broad cross-section of opinions here...

Putting my opinion of bigfoot's existence aside.
Imo,
That can be a tricky one. Sort of like the boy who cried wolf, but in reverse, if that makes sense.
Does one inarguable misidentification automatically equal three?
I don't think it should.
Does it weigh in when evaluating his sightings? That would depend after questioning him more thoroughly as well as learning more about him.
And discussing that "fossil" head of his with him, could shed some light on his perspective and state of mind, etc.

Bigfoot is in the eye of the beholder

If your world has been turned upside down, due to a close range sighting, one questions if everything they've ever been told is true or not. Since his rock find is within a short period of time after his alleged sightings, he may still be in "everythings a Sas" mode falling victim to pareidolia.

On the other hand, he could be making it all up in an attempt to add some kind of crediblity to his find.

It could go either way depending on which way one wants to spin it.

I can't get the video to load, but the picture makes me wonder what is wrong with people?

Granted, I'm no expert on fossils or the process of fossilization, however I do know a couple things about them and one of those things is that soft tissue doesn't fossilize. It can leave an impression in the surrounding rock......that's how we've managed to learn what dinosaurs' skin looks like, but the skin itself simple rotted away.

A simple x-ray will answer the question if it's a real skull or not.........and why did he wait six weeks before bringing it to the local paper to show them?
Because he had to summon up the courage to pull off a total lie

If that's a big foot head...I have a couple of genuine dragon bones that I'd be willing to sell at a fair price to that guy.

Wait...a thought just occurred to me.

I thought Bigfeets ate the remains of their dead so there wouldn't be any traces of them. If this is a fossilized head like this guy claims, it means there had to remains for it to form.

So I guess the Bigfeets missed this guy or they were just full?

They don't eat the skulls. They put them on a stick, freeze them then eat them like ice-lollies. They then use the skulls for portable 'knocking' devices to confuse the Finding Bigfoot team. ;)

Well technically using a person's previous statements alone to judge a new statement is a fallacious arguement. So, I think we need to look at the rock alone and decide if it is something other then a rock. And it is.... a rock... at least IMHO.

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.

Bear in mind that these three statements (1 evidence, 2 sightings) are all about the one thing – Bigfoot (or his belief in Bigfoot)...

Ideally we would be able to flesh-out the details of these claims and the claimant but in reality we can only go with what we have. If we were to start a Bigfoot Database from scratch could we reasonably add May’s claims as credible information about a potentially unknown species? Could the data from these examples lead us to the zoological discovery of the century?

Perhaps he truly believes that he has seen Bigfoot twice and that he has found a fossil Bigfoot head AND he is making it all up. Perhaps this is a tangible example of the power and influence of the imagination in the human experience of “real life”. After all we, all "spin it" to some degree...


Stardrive - If one “questions if everything they've ever been told is true or not” in such an unusual experiences why do you think they never seem to question themselves – ie question our basic perceptual and cognitive limitations as flawed human beings? What’s your take on that?

QuiteContrary – Considering the informal demographics of active Bigfoot belief have you not noticed which state Todd May’s home town of Ogden is in?
