Creatures, Myths & Legends

Bigfoot enthusiast photographs huge five-toed print in West Virginia

Possible Bigfoot prints.
Who or what left this print ? Image Credit: Chuck Headley / Facebook / Bigfoot Believers
The footprint, which measured around 9 inches in width, was found in a patch of mud in Ritchie County.
There are few cryptozoological creatures that have generated as much debate and intrigue over the years as Bigfoot - a large hairy hominid said to roam the remote forests of North America.

For many, Bigfoot is little more than a myth, while for others, its existence is undisputed - often due to a personal experience that has left little doubt in that person's mind that the creature is the real deal.

One individual who would seem to fall firmly into the latter category is Chuck Headley from West Virginia who recently took to the Bigfoot Believers Facebook group to post up a couple of snaps of something that he believed to be evidence of the creature's existence.

What he had found was a large five-toed footprint measuring approximately 9 inches in width.
Sure enough, the images he posted do show what appears to be a large footprint, but other users were quick to point out that the absence of any other footprints in the vicinity was a bit suspect.

"Why only one print ?" another user commented. "Why is there always only ONE footprint ? What ? Bigfoot only hops on one foot then lands a mile away ?"

Ultimately, there's only so much that can be determined from photographs of a single footprint.

Could it have been left by some other type of animal ? Could it even be a hoax ?

You decide.

Sadly, it will be placed in the list of bigfoot evidence and used for decades to come as a piece of proof of its existence.

I doubt it... it very clearly isn't.

Oh I don't know, there are some in these very forums that will still try. Have you heard of the Papa-meter?

They put everything in there even if it is debunked.

Agreed.  That's run-off in mud.  A simulacrum of a large foot.

Which is admirable.  There's nothing like a complete record to draw upon.

Yeah I have been here talking to you about your silly assumptions and hypotheses you call debunking for a long time... I know the identity change was hard to follow but I was nnicolette lol

Silly assumptions? Debunking? About BF? Not once in and BF-related thread have I done either. I haven't tried to debunk anything and certainly have not proposed or assumed anything. I have simply stated that the creature (as described) does not exist. That is an opinion. One based on science and reason. Now I will admit, I have asked a lot of challenging questions that no one from the believer side wishes to answer. I get that though because attempting to answer the specific items I propose opens a whole can of worms. Oh no, following you was easy since your profile picture didn't change lol. ... [More]

The Papa-meter is not based on any discernable, reliable, repeatable, objective metric, but rather on the fee-fees of its credulous author.
