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.”

The Patterson-Gimlin film, which appears to show a large ape-like creature stalking through the woods, has long been a source of debate. Is it proof of Bigfoot, or just a guy in a suit?

The film, shot in the 1960s, is grainy and shaky, making it difficult to see exactly what’s going on. But now a reddit user has stabilized the footage, making it much easier to see what’s going on.

So now that you can see it clearly, what’s your opinion? Is is Bigfoot…or a guy in a costume?
