Sass-quatch: Paranormal Vet Blasts N.O. Bigfoot Society


With coyotes and black panthers on the loose, a Bigfoot siting in metro New Orleans might only have seemed a matter of time. This week, the so-called New Orleans Bigfoot Society (NOBS) released a video (watch it after the jump) on YouTube that claimed to show Sasquatch lurking in City Park. There was even a press release, so it must be true! Nevertheless, a real Internet paranormal expert came forward to call the whole Sasquatch Watch a fraud. Over at Ghost Theory, a website which currently trumpets a new Nessie siting in Loch Ness, Javier Ortega lashed out at NOBS, calling the whole thing a "hoax."

 

The central evidence of the hoax is the Society's claim that they have been hunting Bigfoot since 2001. Ortega presents registration information for the Society website's domain name that shows it was created this month. Then, he lashes out on behalf of paranormal hunters everywhere:

 

"These types of hoaxes are detrimental to any Fortean field of study," he writes. "Here we have a couple of guys who wanted to make a video go viral and make some money off it. What they don’t understand is that this is why Cryptozoology, Ufology and the paranormal have such a difficult time breaking into mainstream science. When these hoaxes start to infiltrate the mainstream media, then we can pretty much kiss any chances of government funding going into these fields."

 

Here's the video:

 

 




I believe that Bigfoot is

I believe that Bigfoot is real because I know what Bigfoot really is. The film that Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin made of Bigfoot is real. Here is what they filmed on October 20 1967 at Bluff Creek, California.

Several thousand years ago there were thousands of slaves that were building two cities. They ran off around the world and started their own countries. When these slaves ran off there was a large group of men and boys that took off and ended up in Africa. Some of them were giants as tall as 9 ft. or even taller. The giant named Goliath that David killed with his slingshot was 9 ft. tall.

Some of these men and boys went exploring to Borneo and used ropes to catch female orangutans. They took them to South America and had sex with them and eventually created the Indians. The men and boys that stayed in Africa used ropes to catch female gorillas. They had sex with them and eventually created the Africans. When scientists found the bones in Africa they thought we evolved naturally from a female chimpanzee.

But it wasn't a natural evolution it was a man made evolution. That's where all the Bigfoot and Orangutan creatures come from. They are half man and half gorilla and half man and half orangutan. They use to call the Indians the red man. The orangutan has reddish hair. When those men bred out the hair the Indian's skin remained red. The gorilla has black hair and skin. When those men bred out the hair the African's skin remained black.

Some of the Africans and Indians are tall and some of the Bigfoot and Orangutan creatures are tall. They are tall because some of the men that created them were tall. Some scientists believe that we evolved naturally from a female chimpanzee. Have you ever seen an 8 ft. tall chimpanzee? I haven't either. Bigfoot came up through Africa and into the United States at the top of Africa when they were connected by land. The Orangutan creatures came up through Central America and into the United States like the Indians did later on.

These creatures were able to travel around the world to other countries because some of the land was connected at the time. The first Europeans that saw the Africans said that some of the African women had genitalia that resembled that of a gorilla. If you look at the nose of a full blooded African and Indian you will notice that it is wide and flat like the gorilla and orangutan's nose. The North American Science Institute said that the creature in the Patterson-Gimlin film had both human and gorilla characteristics.

That's because it is a human-gorilla hybrid. In the 1920's there was a group of scientists in Orange Park, Florida that was said to have created a human-primate hybrid. One of the aging scientist told someone that they did create a human-primate hybrid. He said that after a few days went by they destroyed it. This was done in secret but the word got out. Scientists have created a hybrid between a goat and a sheep. And their genetic code is further apart than a human and primate's genetic code.

The creature that Roger Patterson and Bob Gilin filmed in 1967 was half man and half gorilla. It was a female Bigfoot that they nicknamed Patty. Patty was not a man in a costume, she is not our missing link and she is not a figment of our imagination. Patty is a creature that was created by men that had sex with female gorillas and orangutans a long time ago. Believe it or not, man created his own evolution.

"Real" Internet Paranormal

"Real" Internet Paranormal Investigator? Please... Really jealous is more like it.

Who is this Javier Ortega

Who is this Javier Ortega anyway and what makes him a "Paranormal Vet"? He's just some douchebag with a Ghost blog.

His opinion doesnt mean much. We'll see who has the last laugh when the hair and fecal samples are analyzed...

While our site may be new, our research isn't. We set up this website in early June as a response to the rash of recent cryptid phenomena in the New Orleans metro area.
