Man discovers 'Bigfoot tracks' in Washington

A Medical Lake man believes that he has photographed a set of footprints left by the legendary Sasquatch.
Retiree Steve Meacham and his wife had been driving through their neighborhood looking for nature scenes to photograph when they spotted something unusual in the snow - a set of large footprints, each measuring approximately 23 inches across with a 35-inch stride.

The couple attempted to follow the trail but had to turn back as the snow was too deep.

"I have no idea what could [have] made these, other than Bigfoot!" Meacham wrote on Facebook.

But could this really be evidence of a mysterious bipedal hominid or is there a simpler explanation ?

According to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, it is possible that the footprints are the result of 'postholing' - which is when a hiker without snowshoes sinks in to the snow on each stride.

Meacham, however, remains unconvinced and is adamant that Bigfoot is out there.

"I'll be a believer until they prove he's not and I don't think that's ever going to happen," he said.

A news video showing photographs of the tracks can be viewed below.

Patterson claimed they were actually looking around the area for a week before they staged found bigfoot. Two weeks according to Gimlin. Time probably spent in bars mostly, according to de Attley lol. Not that it matters, agree with your sentiment. There was a spate of bigfoot sightings around Yakima at the same time that Patterson was putting up posters about his book, shortly before it was released (one of them a "white silvery coloured" bigfoot). There were also a few sightings around the Merritt property at the time he was trying convince his friend Merritt (who had Hollywood connections t... [More]

Bob gilmin was the one posing indian in the doc, Well, if i recall correctly both roe and ostman descrided creatures with breasts ostman said something like " the old ladys figure would have been improved with a brassiere" paraphased. Thats intriguing what rover suggests, patterson was working for that nature film company making docs, Perhaps as that was falling apart patterson jumped to claiming the suit to do a reinactment was the real deal to try to get the $$$ a real creature film it way better than just another doc one thing for sure patterson was in a race against time and not just becau...

I'm a native Washington resident, though I live on the western side and not central. The area I live in is pretty much prime Bigfoot territory, though. Tons of thick forest absolutely everywhere. In my ten years of living here, I've never seen anything that would suggest Bigfoot lives out there. Bigfoot is one of those sort of "local culture" things around here, where everyone is aware of him. I don't think it's too implausible that this might have been a hoax or someone having a little fun. But like I said, I live on the western side instead of central, so I don't know how relevant this all i... [More]

You could be right. But then agian Slenderman started as a joke and now people are claiming to have seen him everywhere..All it takes is for one person to plant that seed of urban legend..I am still on the fence when it comes to eyewitness testimony of these sightings...To me it's hard to believe that all those people could be making this stuff up...But then agian I have no hard evidence to back up any claim so I will let it go at that.

What i noticed reserching smaller folklore stories like dover demon, flatwoods monster etc is basically there are always contagion sightings, meaning fred saw it so sam saw it too then jenny sees it etc when it likely started as a hoax or misidentified known creature, some like nessie or bigfoot get big

Yes. An interesting point is that I have heard believers claim that "Patty's" breasts have only been noticed recently, through close up, digital enhancement and so on. Which helps it's authenticity because, why would someone do that? Yet in Patterson's very first interviews he went to some length to stress the "creature" had breasts. It was like a selling point. He also claimed he stressed it to the the scientists (if there ever really were any) that he originally showed it to, and who found it uninteresting. Yes, his "documentary" was being financed by American National Enterprises and variou... [More]

Im 54 so when the pgf came out i was little but recall it being a hyped up big deal and to see it you had to go to the theaters i remember grandmother insisting to my mom to go see it, and the tucket taker saying it my scare me. The loud responses in the audience of oohs and ahs but not bood or dismissals, There was that follow up doc from the with that ANE outfit the fist 20mins is the usual everything proves bf and the pgf are real but had charm with folks like myrtle walton and her husband but then for over an hour its a go nowhere waste of time with bob morgan at the helm, what became of h...
