"Most Convincing" Evidence Of Bigfoot "Accidentally" Leaked

“Most Convincing” Evidence Of Bigfoot “Accidentally” Leaked

Last week, the folks from Sanger Paranormal, a group based out of California, made the announcement that they were scheduling a press conference to discuss what they’re calling “potentially the most convincing evidence of Bigfoot since the Patterson film of 1967”. That’s a pretty lofty announcement if I’ve ever heard one.

The “evidence” in question consists of two full body impressions on the left and right passenger side doors of a truck, impressions that are reported to have captured the imprints of the nostrils, lips, and nose of a Sasquatch. In addition, Sanger claims they’ve also collected hair samples and footprints from the same location.

Jeffrey Gonzalez, founder of Sanger Paranormal, told AOL news that when he returned to his vehicle after “an expedition in the High Sierras of California”, he was so shockedby the imprints that he almost threw up. He’s convinced that it’s Bigfoot.


“Apparently, the creature was looking in the window and left behind dirt and oil on it, leaving such an awesome picture, you can see the nose, the eye, the hair all over the face and the shoulders — it’s creepy, and it’s not a bear.”

The press conference is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at the Picadilly Inn in Fresno, California, where Sanger Paranormal intends to unveil video and images of their amazing evidence.

The problem is, they accidentally leaked it already.

The "most convincing" Bigfoot evidence since the 60's is not a body, video footage, or hair sample. It's a big grease splotch.

In what was either a really dumb mistake or a “hail mary” for media attention, Sanger Paranormal uploaded an iPhone image of one of the impressions to their website, only to quickly remove it. Unfortunately for them, several people snagged the image before it was gone, and it’s now made the rounds through cryptozoological circles, where it’s already being attributed to snooping homeless folk, bad photoshop, pareidolia, and even the bear that Gonzalez insists it isn’t.

“I’ve shown people — non-believers — this photograph and this totally freaked them out.”

The evidence is, frankly, disappointing. If one looks hard enough, they can, indeed, see a face in the mess of smears and wrinkles, but that’s nothing strange. Faces can be found in anything if you’re looking for one.

Gonzalez is almost defensive in his declaration that the smudges do not belong to a bear, a deduction that he only reached because the three coolers in the back of the truck, filled with food, were left untouched. That’s a hard sell.

But the oddest part of Sanger’s attempt to sell their “evidence” to the media was the bizarrely unprofessional press release that doesn’t prove the existence of Bigfoot so much as demonstrate that there were no efforts to involve real scientific investigators in the case:

No, it’s not a Bigfoot in a Freezer and we are not affiliated with those guys in any way. This evidence was captured during an expedition in the High
Sierra’s of California during the Memorial Day weekend of 2011. There were a total of 5 people in attendance who made the discovery. Three of those people

1. Is an award winning High School Principal with a Masters Degree, Formerly a Science Teacher and a former investigator for www.BFRO.com.

2. Correctional Officer for 19 years and is Employed at a prison in California. Was featured on a Episode of Monster Quest titled” the Sierra Sasquatch”.

3. Is a Employe at AT&T Telephone. Associates Degree in Electronics. Founder of the www.SangerParanormalSociety.com

Also, a 14 year Forensic Specialist who is friends with 2 of the people mentioned above was called out to come and take photos and swab For DNA……

This location where the evidence was captured is known for heavy Bigfoot activity…

That was over half of the press release, presented exactly as it was formatted. Sanger Paranormal dedicated only 25% of the release to discussing Bigfoot, and 50% to tell the press not why they were qualified to make statements like “this is the most convincing bigfoot evidence since the Patterson film”, but rather, to tell us why they’re super cool guys with neat hobbies. The other 25% of the release consisted of how to contact them.

While frustrating, the naysayers and the “accidental” image leak aren’t deterring Sanger from their quest for a reality tv show the truth, and they hope that the DNA tests (being performed by a friend) will come back with results that are more man than animal. We’ll wait and see.

I don’t think it’s any coincidence that Sanger’s announcement has come at a time when the public’s interest in Bigfoot is soaring. Sightings are on the rise, Finding Bigfoot is on the air, and enough time has gone by that people are over the last big Sasquatch hoax. The real question is whether or not the public is interested in Bigfoot enough to take this “evidence” seriously when it smacks of a publicity stunt.

We’ll find the answer in the banquet hall of the Picadilly Inn tomorrow afternoon at 4PM PST.
