Bigfoot !!! ... Or maybe not...

Whether or not you pay attention to Bigfoot related topics in Minnesota, you have probably stumbled across the latest purported image of a Bigfoot taken by a trail cam near Remer Lake, MN.

This image (courtesy of Bemidji Pioneer) shows what some Minnesota Bigfoot Researchers believe is a bigfoot.  I honestly have no idea how these researchers could come to such a conclusion but here is a quote from The Dickinson Press, "When Sherman saw the image the Kedrowskis sent him, Tim said the researcher responded that he believes it is a picture of a Bigfoot. Sherman went with the Kedrowskis to the photo site and measured the height of the creature in comparison to the sapling next to it. He determined the animal is about 7 feet tall."

The photo in question is an absurd attempt at a prank or hoax. I am truly amazed that some people actually went to the location to investigate this photo of a person in a suit.

These types of photos or videos are common place throughout various internet venues, i.e. youtube, photobucket and the lot of media sharing sites.  99.9% of them are clearly fakes to anyone using common sense in evaluating them. This particular situation veers from the norm when people who call themselves researchers take an opportunity to exploit such a photo.

Based upon the article it would seem that that owner of the photo contacted the researchers first and then the media outlet was informed of the photo. Since it's clear to me that at least one of the researchers has had prior contact with the paper, I would then conclude that the researchers went to the paper with this photo. That leads us to the actual article, which in it the researchers seem willing to speculate that this might be a photo of a Sasquatch.

Now, my initial thoughts when first viewing the photo were that I thought this was clearly a cheap monkey suit. This hasn't changed for I can draw no other conclusions based on what I'm looking at.

I feel when researchers go public heralding junk data like this, claiming that trail cam photos of monkey suits may be evidence of Bigfoot, it only facilitates more of the same from certain researchers and pranksters.

It's hard to blame certain media outlets for running the article however, for they are looking for a story and probably have no idea how to evaluate such a photo, but the researchers investigating this should know better. Instead they seem more than willing to play along with this and in turn they make a mockery of BF Research, whether they know it or not.

This is nothing more than a poor attempt at perpetrating a prank. 

If you are looking to hit the jackpot with your "guy in a suit" trail cam pic, send that baby over to The Northern Minnesota Bigfoot Research Team, it seems you'll get your 15 minutes over there.
