One of the greatest Bigfoot videos ever, but few have heard of it. Here it is. Even if you don’t believe in Bigfoot, the footage is still amazing, and you ought to check it out. Shot in the Marble Mountains Wilderness in Trinity County of Northern California. The video incorrectly gives the location as the Central Sierras. Not the case.
The video was shot in the July, 2000. A Christian high school group called Campus Life organized a hike into the wilderness with 15 handicapped kids.
The kids were very quick to spot the Bigfoot on the ridge 1/2 mile away.
The group is hiking around and they come upon this extremely strange structure built of branches. The branches are large and have been broken in half by something very strong, not with a saw. The inside has matted down mass, excellent for sleeping or retiring. There are claw marks on surrounding trees. They crawl inside the shelter and are able to make it in.
I have seen videos of many of these structures and I am sure that they are made by Bigfoots. These are the “nests” that the Bigfoots make to hole up in during the day. Gorillas and chimps also make nests. Bigfoot nests have been discovered and reported on many occasions in the past 200 years in North America. Claw marks on trees are also often found in Bigfoot areas.
Nearby, there is what looks like a fireplace, but no one has ever made a fire there. These rock structures or piles of rocks are frequently reported in Bigfoot area. Their meaning is unknown.
At some point, one of the boys notices something on a ridge a full 1/2 mile away. They get out the video camera and start videotaping it. It is extremely tall and is not shaped like a man at all. It does not walk like a man, nor does it stand like one. It sways its hips in a strange way, and its method of locomotion is wrong for a man. The range of motion of its hips appears to be outside the human range.
It has a strange curved humpbacked structure about its upper back. It walks very fast, and goes down a 3 foot drop from a rock like it was nothing. Its body seems much too wide to be a man, and its arms are too long to be human arms. The position of its head on its shoulders is unlike that of a man – compare the Bigfoot’s head and shoulders to that of the man at 9:24 in the video.The shoulders appear to be about 4 feet wide – this is far outside the human range.
It appears to have cupped hands, and it may be possible to make out a coned head. It walks with both legs bent – its legs do not straighten out as it walks like a human’s do. This so-called “compliant gate” is almost or nearly impossible to fake. He also walks “like a tightrope walker” – this is called the “inline step,” and it is also difficult if not impossible to fake. Measurements have been made of the figure in the film – its chest is 56″ and its waist is 54″. Sure walks awfully fast and eloquently for an obese guy, eh?
Here is good background on the Christian group leader of disabled kids who shot the film – he could not possibly have hoaxed this video.
The Bigfoot comes down to point nearer to the humans and seems to be very angry. It seems to shake its fist at them. It moves back and forth in a very agitated way. It puts its hand to its head as if it was thinking. Then it puts both hands to its head in an expression of apparent anguish. Various emotions are revealed, including possibly despair, anguish, regret, disappointment and frustration.
The Bigfoot apparently noticed, at 1/2 mile away, that the humans had discovered its nest and it moved down the ridge and engaged in various displays of threat and anguish in response to their discovery.
The Bigfoot is very large. Measurements taken later show it is higher than an 8’3″ branch. That means it could well be 9-10 feet tall. I feel this is a male Bigfoot because of the elegant way its body looks. Male and female Bigfoots have distinctive appearances.
The group went back up to the ridge later to look for footprints, but there were none due to the rocky nature of the terrain.
Naysayers have used some software technique to imply that the “Bigfoot” is hoaxed and was wearing clothing. Others have said that the height measurement was incorrect and instead the Bigfoot was taller than a man. I am familiar with the Campus Life Christian group. They are as straight as can be. Campus Life hoaxed this video, on a hike with disabled kids to boot? They built the stick structure too? How did they do that? Those sticks broken by something strong and were not sawed. It would take a long time to build a fake nest like that. Forget it.
I do not believe this figure is wearing clothing. I do not believe it is as tall as a man – just look at the video and tell me that. It could very well have been 9-10 feet tall.
