This is a cast of a Bigfoot print taken from the filmsite of the famous 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film, where a female Bigfoot (Patty) is seen lumbering along the shore of Bluff Creek near Orleans, California. I picked up this cast from Loren Coleman of the International Cryptozoology Museum when I had the opportunity to meet him at the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference last year.
As a skeptic (I want to believe…) I had to take the opportunity to ask Coleman his opinion on the film, especially since he is not only an expert on the subject, but after chatting with him briefly it became clear he is a very intelligent and thoughtful man ruled by logic and reason. He said he is “97% sure it’s real.”
