Bigfoot: Fact or Fiction? Patterson Film Analyzed
Bigfoot researcher, computer animator, and Hollywood costume designer Bill Munns receives access to the original Patterson-Gimlin film to thoroughly exam.
Question: “Did you see any neck on any of them?”.
Answer: “Yes, that was another thing that tipped me off that they were not birds. They each had a distinct neck between body and head, that was more narrow and clearly visible.”
Question: “Did you see any feet on any of them?”
Answer: “I did not notice their feet.”
Question: “Is it possible that what appeared to have been tails were actually their feet held behind them?”
Answer: “I suppose it’s possible but they looked a lot like tails to me. Long and thin with a bigger point at the tip.”
This past Monday morning I read an email I received from a woman who encountered three “dragons” flying over the I-5 freeway, just northeast of downtown Los Angeles, on Sunday morning, March 3rd. (I will call this anonymous eyewitness “CGP”)
This morning at about 6 am [later clarified to be within five minutes of 6:10 a.m.] I saw three “dragons” flying over the 5-North freeway between Griffith Park and Glendale. They appeared to be several feet long, with a head:body:tail ratio that was certainly not that of a bird. Their wings were long, angular and pointed and their tails had triangular points. . . . I definitely saw them, but was driving so I could not stop and watch where they went.
The Four Key Sightings in the Southwest Pacific[In all of these cases the reports came years later and were possibly misremembered. I had also previously mentioned to Mr Whitcomb that some of the sightings could refer to another alleged cryptid, a giant hornbill, also said to be seen in the area; He has conveniently forgotten the alternative explanation]
Misidentified sea birds [Frigate bird] are a far cry from how serious living-pterosaur investigations really began.[Although I do not advocate misidentifications of frigate birds for sightings, others have said so and I have mentioned the fact that others have said so]
No Manta rays would appear to fly through the air together and change directions in the air . . .[Once again we are talking about sightings and not documentary videotapes or films. They can certainly seem to fly and change directions, and the wtnesses can be misremembering details.]
