Is BigFoot Deaf and Real?

June 19, 2007

Fookem and Bug collected the stories about the deaf people’s experience in sighting of BigFoot. We are not holding the responsibility for the stories. It is up to you to believe it or not. We feel this stories should be shared in the Deaf Community because we often heard the hearing people’s experiences. So let’s meet those Deaf people’s stories. Enjoy.

Dear Fookem and Bug, Hi my name is Jennifer. I was a prepartory student at Gallaudet’s Northwest Campus in 1986. I saw a big hairy man walking through the woods behind my dorm. I believe it was a big foot. I told my boyfriend (he is my husband now) to check out of the window. He saw him too. He freaked out and ran to the security office. They laughed and said ” you thought it was a big foot. we think it is a lost animal from the National Zoo. We got a call from the zoo a month ago. They said it was a 4 feet monkey digging a hole and escaped to the woods. Maybe it was a monkey wandering.” I swear it was a big foot. I know what a monkey looked like. My boyfriend and I disagreed with them. The big foot was about 7 feet tall. Next day we went to the woods and looked for the footprint. Found 3 footprints on the mud near the trail. My boyfriend’s shoe’s size was 9 and half. The big foot’s foot’s size was about 15. No kidding. Do you know anything? – Jen

Hiking deaf Boy Scouts have midday sighting near Cape Horn Lake: I do not know if the bigfoot had heard us and prompted itself to get away because most of us were deaf so we could not possibly know if we are being noisy … read more, click: http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=3085

But Native Americans are by no means the only people to report experiences in which sasquatches appear to be trying to communicate. A man named Alexander Katayev told an experience he had in Russia in August 1974, where he witnessed the two large hairy creatures eating together. He reported that one appeared male, and other female, and that they seemed to speak to one another in voices that reminded him of how deaf people sound when speaking….

Dear Bug and Fookem, How are you? I am fine. I was about 17 years old. I saw a white bigfoot at my grandmother’s house in Iowa. I’ve heard most big foots live in the woods but why are they on my grandfather’s farmland? I went to school and asked my deaf friend about the big foot. They called me a liar. Oh well. Peter

Hey Fokem and Bug, my friends told me you look for a story about bigfoot. I saw a huge man with no shoes walking beside the road in Oregon last 5 years ago. He hurried to enter the woods. At first I thought it was a bear until I passed and saw his hands on the bark. I thought it was strange. I told my husband about it. He said he heard about that area where people saw a bigfoot walking beside. Creepy freak! Sorry no picture. I hope I will use my sidekick to take a picture of bigfoot when I see one. Hope this story helps.

Is Bigfoot DEAF?

Here is an article: An Early Georgia Monster. In the fore part of August, 1812, a party of hunters found in a mountainous region now known as Rabun county, Ga., a being nearly eight feet high covered with bluish hair and having a human face adorned with immense ears resembling those of an ass. The creature was stonedeaf and on that account seemed wholly unconscious of the approach of the men. This monster seems, from old accounts, to have been seen upon several occasions during the next four years. In 1816 a number of adventurers from Virginia, most of them surveyors working up the unexplored portions of Georgia and the Carolinas, formed themselves into a party for the express purpose of capturing the uncanny being if possible. They scoured the hills and valleys for several days and at last returned unsuccessful to the starting point. The many tales told of this extraordinary being seem to have created quite a stir all along the Atlantic coast. A printed circular issued by a land company in 1815 says, “The climate of Georgia is exceedingly mild, the soil productive, and the danger of attack from uncouth beasts which are represented as being half beast and half man are fairy tales not worthy of consideration.” Delphos, Ohio, Daily Herald, May 14, 1901. http://www.coachwhipbooks.com/titles/bigfoot.html

    The Bigfoot does not exist on the Earth. The man who wore the Bigfoot costume died a few years ago. He did it for more than 30 years. His family revealed the secret after man who launched ‘Bigfoot’ legend died. I forget his name.

    it’s all hoax…same thing goes for the ufo/alien things. all the pictures are always blurry/murky, none is clear! I mean we have see thousands pictures of these things (ufo, alien, bigfoot, loch ness monster, etc)…….nothing, not even one picture is clear? figure it out!
    I will never believe them until I see with my own eyes which will never happen anyway.

  5. June 19, 2007 at 7:02 pm

    Hee hee…what’s about the ghosts, JFLMad?

    Nikeguy, I remember that story. That guy you were speaking of, it’s Ray Wallace. The problem is …Is BigFoot really dead? Check this out: http://www.lorencoleman.com/is_bigfoot_dead.html

    Just recently there was an article in my county’s paper regarding sightings of Big Foot in Southeastern Wisconsin. Many people who witness it say that originally they did not want to talk about it for fear of being labeled crazy.

    On one of the weird websites, one scientist who had unlimited access to one of the top secret govt underground sites had revealed that these creatures are really aliens and the govt knows about it. Supposedly there’s deep deep underground tunnels all over USA. He was murdered and his wife says he is not crazy.

    I don’t know what to believe…until I see one, I’ll report back to you.

    Bug, to answer your question…….yes I do believe in the ghosts cuz I did saw it with my own eyes. 🙂

    read this!


    Quick facts:
    • The idea of a “Sasquatch” originated in Indian myths.
    • Footprints are usually around 14 inches by 7 inches, with no arch.
    • 7 to 9 feet tall, 600 to 900 pounds.
    • First sighting by a white man occurred in 1811 by David Thompson.
    • Three sightings occurred in 1924. One of these was Albert Ostman claiming to have been captured by Bigfoots.
    • While some sightings are likely true or at least not disproved, some are obviously hoaxes.
    • A supposedly captured Bigfoot known as Jacko was probably a hoax, a gorilla or chimpanzee perhaps.
    • Many hoax movies were made, none of them works of art.

    Critic, that would be interesting to know what their reports said. Let us know what you know, thanks. Off the point, when you mentioned about the top secret that government doesn’t want us to know…it reminds me of Mothman story. You can find the information about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothman also you can rent a movie that is called ” The Mothman Prophecies “. Actor Richard Gere played in that movie.

    I never thought about a deaf bigfoot…If so, they should catch him because he can’t hear anyone behing his back. But I enjoyed reading the deafies’ stories in our deaf community! Thank you, Fookem and Bug, anyway!

  12. June 19, 2007 at 11:49 pm

    JFLMad, many people would say that ghosts are fake even you saw one. They would laugh at anyone believing in alien, ufo, witch, ghost, bigfoot, fairy, etc like you believe in ghosts.

    Well, I believe in Santa Clause!


  13. June 19, 2007 at 11:52 pm

    GASP! Deb Ann Mow is talking about me! Well, I know how to escape from anyone when they see me….maybe I was just reading the newspapers behind the woods so everyone would think I am BigFoot! -Bug

    Do you believe in curse? If not, you are insulting me.

    Anyway, I remembered when I ate the grass for my lunch time. I saw Bigfoot that tried to scare me and it does not work for me. My little horn scared him, he flew away with a panic look. BLEAT BLEAT

    I can’t fine the recent article in Walworth County “The Week”. But, below is something that was written about it in 2006.


    Also the beast of bray road (similar to bigfoot). Needless to say, when I drive at night in the backroads, I’m always making sure my car is locked and windows are rolled up.

    Upon studying the Patterson/Gimlin film footage for many years now, and seeing Bob Heironimus’s walk on television, I would have to say Bob’s gait is identical to the PGF. It’s truly uncanny, but, I also have to say that given the time period of 1967, Roger Patterson just didn’t have a lot available to him back then. He was a simple man, with no inside Hollywood connections that would have helped him make a suit. Nor any more help that you and I could get from any of the studios. Look at the costumes available on the market today, even the really high dollar ones, and nothing today compares with the PGF of bigfoot, and that was 40 years ago. That has to be the most famous gait in the world, at least one worth noticing, and if I was to perpetuate a hoax like that, you can bet I would either still have the costume, or have pictures of the costume, and lots of them. That costume is Smithsonian material for sure. Now why doesn’t Bob Gimlin, or Bob Heironimus have pictures of it? Heironimus says he was in the costume during the famous filming of the encounter in Bluff Creek. Where’s the proof? Original drawings from the 1967 sketches? Something, somewhere. A costume of such worlwide notability just doesn’t get forgotten about and disappear. They don’t have one, because there never was one. Show me viable proof this is a fake, and you’ll make a believer out of me. No man out for fun would even think to make this a female with breasts. Would you have? Probably not. I’m duped by the musculature features of movemnet that coincides with the gait perfectly. Try fashioning the same bigfoot head from a football helmut, like Heironimus says it was. Or try draping a leather horsehide that’s in 6 pieces over your body and see how realistic that looks. Rubbish! Everyone calls it a monkey suit. No monkey is that big and try to find a gorilla costume that looks like the bigfoot in the film. Can’t be done. Try it if you don’t believe me. It’s like saying you photographed a ghost, but the only costume available on the market today is Casper the Friendly Ghost. It makes absolutely no sense to me to go through all that trouble of filming something of this nature, and then destroying all the evidence that would and could have the potential to make you a lot of money. I can only shake my head in wonderment.

    Back in about the fall of 1956 or 1957 I was driving along on State Hwy. 70 apx 8 mi. east of Winter, Wi. when I spotted a huge ape like creature standing about 8 ft. tall along the side of the road. I stopped my car and watched it for about a minute.. It looked at me and I at it.. I was very scared an it also appeared scared of me..Then, it walked across the road on two legs with both arms swinging.. I watched it continue walking into the woods until it was out of site.
    I told a friend about my experience and he laughed about it thinking I was crazy or something..
    However, the following spring He was reading a magazine (which I am not quite sure of the name anymore) but I believe that it was a men’s sport magazine such as Argosy or True.. Anyway, near the back of the magazine there was a page called “Strange but True” and they had various articles about things on that page.. One of the articles was headed: “Is this a man or a beast” and there was a picture of a man like creature with hair on it lying in a coffin like box under glass and the article went on to say that this creature was shot last fall by a deer hunter in northern wisconsin and was sent to Europe for examination and experimentation..It said that the news was hushed up by the Wisconsin DNR for fear that it might cause people to be scared..
    It said that the creature was stolen and there was a $20,000.00 reward for the return of it..
    I have searched and searched to find this article in either Argosy or True Magazine archives but to no avail..
    I am wondering if you could help me find this article again..
    Thank you,
    robert biller

    After last night’s great show on Plains Radio (yeah, the one where Ed Hale was balling like a baby because OBAMA IS GOING DOWN THIS TIME – just hit that paypal people!!) I decided to pop in to Free Republic where I found a huge thread about his new ‘evidence’ that Obama was born in Kenya.

    An astute Freeper posted a link to a very interesting YouTube video and wondered if the man called ‘Bugs’ that was being interviewed in the clip could possibly be the one and only Ed Hale.
    After listening to about five minutes of the YouTube, I was convinced and shared with ZeN, and our two Ed Hale specialists neonzx and GreatGrey. They all agreed that it is definitely Ed.

    ZeN was kind enough to wade through a couple hours of interviews from Coast to Coast AM in 2001 with Art Bell, and provide some highlights for us.
    Yes! Ed killed Bigfoot in 1976! Two of them! Except, maybe they were people, so he kept it all hush-hush. So now there could possibly be two dead bigfoots or people buried in a creek bed near Ed’s place in Texas. How about that? I’m sure that not only would the bigfoot hunter community be interested to know who ‘Bugs’ is after all this time, but as I recall the statute of limitations for Murder never runs out.

    The film that Roger Patterson made back in 1967 in California of Bigfoot, is real. Now I am going to tell you exactly what Bigfoot really is. Long before Jesus was born there were thousands of slaves who ran off around the world and started their own countries. When these slaves ran off there was a large group of men and boys who took off and ended up in Africa. When they got there some of these men and boys caught female Orangutans and took them over to South America and had sex with them and created the American Indian. The men and boys who stayed in Africa caught female Gorillas and had sex with them and created the Black man. When scientists found the bones they thought we evolved from a female Chimpanzee. But it wasn’t a natural evolution it was a man made evolution. That’s where Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Orangutan man and the Skunk Ape comes from. They are half man and half Gorilla and half man and half Orangutan. They use to call the American Indian the red man. The Orangutan has redish or orange hair. When those men bred out the hair the Indian’s skin remained red. The Gorilla has black hair and skin. When those men bred out the hair the Black man’s skin remained black. These are not prehistoric creatures from millions of years ago but they are man made creatures from several thousand years ago. The creature that Roger Patterson filmed in 1967 was half man and half Gorilla. So these creatures are real. But they are simply man made creatures. Man created his own evolution.
