The only thing wrong with it is that I didn't take it !

This MK Davis less than a mile from where the PGF was shot.
At 12 minutes, looks like a juvenile playing with a plastic bag.

Good one, ripperton. I hadn't seen that before. Either M.K. Davis and his mates are hoaxers, which I don't think they are, or they have captured some highly unusual footage! Unfortunately, as we have come to expect, the shot is nowhere near as sharp as the original PG film.

Thanks but its kind of embarrassing that its 3 years old and 3 people on here havnt seen it yet.
Then again MK didnt even spot the "foot" for a year or so.
I believe MK when he says he was the first person in the group to get to that area, everyone else was behind him.
Yes very strange footage the way the foot is playing or folding the plastic bag.

Ray Wallace chose bluff creek to lay his big feet impressions because there were already bigfoot stories associated with the area. Roger Patterson chose to film in bluff creek because of those stories and because of Wallace's bigfeet impressions.

It's like going into the australian bush in Hazelbrook or Kilkivan. Your chances of running into australias bigfoot is exponentially increased.

But the stories attract hoaxers. Its human nature.

Even if Patterson was associated with hoaxers and had dubious intentions himself, it doesnt exclude the possibility that he just got lucky and actually filmed the real thing. The PGF just happens to have more yay sayers than nay sayers.

Yay sayers vs nay sayers to decide if patty was a hoax? How very unscientific! I'm sure life was way better in the 1500s when the Earth was still flat! (cheers)

Here's a question: What did Roger Patterson's horse (he was riding), do, when he rounded the corner and came across Miss Hairy Breasts?

Well actually the yay sayers are the scientists and the nay sayers are the flat earthers.
Extract from Wiki.
"Patterson estimated he was about 25 ft (7.6 m) away from the creature at his closest. Patterson said that his horse reared upon sensing the figure, "

Bears don't have legs and feet like Bigfoot 'Patty" though, they have a more pronounced ankle joint, and massive legs, that are far bulkier than Patty's and with very different muscle mass areas. They also are not capable of sustained, upright motion in such a fluid walking style.
