What Bigfoot, bro?Having just caught wind of a Bigfoot sighting in Northwest Pennsylvania (news reports put the location at RIDGWAY, Pa. er... Ridgeway, not sure why they shortened it... My bad, RIDGWAY is correct.), I set out to investigate this current internet phenomenon as stated by the IHT. (That's International Herald Tribune for those of you who don't read the news. Actually neither do I, not IHT anyway, but that's besides the point. :) )
So this so-called Bigfoot was caught on camera by a hunter named Rick Jacobs and was submitted to Bigfoot Research Organization for verification or whatever it is they do. :P (Not to nitpick with the news folks, but it is actually called Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, not Bigfoot Research Organization. A simple Google search told me so. I've highlighted this fact because I'm not sure how a 4-word title became a 3-word title.)
And so my journey began...
Can't find pics, bro‽To cut a way-too-long story short, I couldn't find the pictures they were talking about. No photos/images of supposed Bigfoot at all! There were tons of words and words and more words, but no graphics. That is sad, bro. Just sad.
There is hope, bro!Of course that isn't totally true. I knew where the pictures of the Rick Jacobs Bigfoot, as it is known now (seems it's also called Ridgway Pa Bigfoot and Pennsylvania Bigfoot, but I think calling it after the discoverer is more appropriate. Heh, I like this one - Jacob's creature.), were located - at the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization website. Naturally it is swarmed with people and as expected their server isn't holding up too well.
But I (you) want to see those pics!!!
Bigfoot pics, bro‽And so, I downloaded those photos from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization website for you to examine in detail. Yeah, they aren't the puny resolution types, they're at 800x600 pixels. Ok, so that can't match the 16 billion pixel Last Supper, but the last time I checked, 16 billion pixels can't fit on your computer screen.
Word of warning, bro.You're about to see Bigfoot in action! (Not as exciting as you think.) This Bigfoot has been named the
Rick Jacobs Bigfoot, Ridgway Pa Bigfoot, Pennsylvania Bigfoot or Jacob's creature.Any other names, bro? Let me know, bro!
It's Bigfoot, bro!Click on the last three images to be rewarded with a larger picture. Credit: Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, taken by Rick Jacobs
What say you, bro?Sasquatch? Bigfoot? Bear? Alien? Let me know, bro! (Err... gals welcome too. :) )
An update, bro.Now that the BFRO site is up (at least for me), the black object you see in the last three pictures is a black plate and a mineral block. Just in case anyone was hoping for some fancy UFO or something else. :)
The area in the foreground was baited with a deer attractant mix and a mineral lick block. In the first image (the one with the bear cubs) the mineral lick block can be seen sitting on a large black plastic plate. One of the bear cubs is apparently licking or sniffing the mineral block. In the two subsequent images the black plate is turned over and leaning against the mineral block. - from Jacobs Photos - Pennsylvania, 9/16/2007 @ BFRO
And you can join in the discussion over at BFRO's dedicated Jacobs Photos - Pennsylvania forum. There are polls, image enhancements/analysis and plenty of talk going on there. More than enough to make it into a subject you can get a degree in. :)
