It’s been 50 years since the controversial footage of a large female Bigfoot was filmed by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in Northern California.

The famous Patterson-Gimlin film, which seems to depict a female sasquatch roaming the woods of Northern California, was shot 50 years ago today on October 20, 1967.

Patty, as the Bigfoot in the film has come to be called, is clearly seen walking off into the woods from the edge of Bluff Creek.

Watch the original footage:

When I met International Cryptozoology Museum founder Loren Coleman at last year’s Milwaukee Paranormal Conference (and got a signed plaster Bigfoot print from the Patterson-Gimlin filmsite) I asked him if he believed the film was authentic.

He said he is “97% sure it’s real.”
