So all they saw was a brown flash and they conclude it is a BF?   Absurd.

Sasquatch? In New Jersey? Not a chance, the population density is far too large. Probably a bear or a moose.

While I think the idea of Bigfoot is silly, I will say NJ has some huge areas of forests especially in the Pine Barrens area.

I think it's more common for people to be wrong than it is for them to straight-up lie.

Yup, and I spent  over 35 years bushwhacking from one end to the other looking for him here. 

He's not.

IMO BF & the like don't exist. Therefore to me, it's either a made up a story or they're wrong- I really don't care which one it is:D

I think she saw something; what, I have no idea, but a BF it was not.

I was focused on driving then I saw something for a split second in my rear-view mirror. It was definitely Bigfoot.

I'm a fan of bigfoot, but I'm not sure what can actually be seen (at night?) from a split second in a mirror while concentrating on the road ahead.

I see stuff all the time in my rear view mirror, and then have to take a serious look back to see what it really was. Usually a leaf, or a bit of paper, or even just a moving shadow of a tree on the road.

EDIT: Article says it was during the day. And that bigfoot was six foot tall and kind of thin.

Might be a sighting of a hobo sapien.

Big brown and furry in NJ?  There are a lot of big deer in PA and NJ.  Of course it could be someone who lost everything at Atlantic City and has been wandering the woods trying to get home.  Must have been a slow real news day for KYW.

Most of the reports turn out to be bears.

 The "Jersey Devil" books by McCloy and Miller outright lied about many of the Bigfoot reports. 3 in Chatsworth are easy to debunk. I was one of the hockey players on Paradise Lake. It was a joker with a Planet of the Apes mask , the "Screams that were louder than the swamp loggers chainsaws" was Mr. Slater's pet peacock and finally Asa Engle's pigs were killed by wild dogs.

Yeah I don't think sasquatches are real either, but I do think it is worth drawing distinction between mistaken identification and outright hoaxing. Hoaxers are actively malicious, whereas the others are just wrong or stupid.

Because there's a difference between the two. Writing every sighting off as a hoax is a lot different than writing everything off as someone being wrong. I just think there's a difference between the two and that they shouldn't be viewed as the same thing. People are incompetent a lot more often than they are malicious.

all due respect but you didn't answer the question= how would you work out who's hoaxing & who's misidentifying? you can't, can you!! so where does that leave us?

it means nothing to me because my basic logic & common sense tells me something like BF cannot exist. But for those who believe, & in some cases spend time effort & no doubt money on looking for BF= It Aint Much Help, is it!

Oh well, there ya go..................

Ah, I misunderstood what you meant. In terms of a report like this, you can't really definitively prove whether it is a hoax or not unless you went to interview the people or had some evidence of their misdeeds or somesuch.

Outright hoaxing like the guys who had the "Bigfoot" in ice a few years back (Rick Dyer) No mistaken identification there.
