Recently, I learned of some incredible photos of a purported Bigfoot taken in Bailey, Colorado in 2017 by a man named Scott Yeoman. I first heard about it from Tim Binnall’s article about it for Coast to Coast AM, which provided a general background of the case.
Tim brought up an excellent point in that “the photos from that evening are unquestionably thought-provoking and, if they really do show Sasquatch, maybe some of the best photos of the creature ever taken. That said, skeptics will likely say that the ‘Bigfoot’ is either a bear or the product of a clever hoax involving a gorilla suit.”
And, sure enough, that’s exactly what happened if you begin to read some of the comments from the original post on the Expedition: Bigfoot Facebook page. But is there more to this story than meets the eye?
Here is the set of photos that are at least worth taking a look at…
The ability of the human mind to recollect events can be a powerful tool. It is also an inevitably faulty tool. This is why it’s critical for the investigator of high strangeness to acquire and document eyewitness testimony early on. The witness (and even the investigator) can become easily influenced by internal and external forces that alter the initial observation over time.
An example of this can be found in the varied descriptions of the infamous Mothman of Point Pleasant, WV from 1966-67.
