Bigfoot Evidence PLSA - OLCHP/Oxford Submission

The following photos were taken in an area we call PLSA in the Sandia mountains here in New Mexico. We were called to take a look at this area by a group of young people who had come across a large amount of evidence while hiking. They had seen tracks, found fruit with bite impressions showing that the creature who had bitten into it was missing many of it's teeth, saw evidence of strategic hunting, which we deduced to be a collaboration between an elderly male, and a female or smaller individual. The group reported that they had seen the area where the two subjects struggled with a deer, including where they had smashed the bones of the animals and presumably consumed the marrow.

Here we have a BF trackway with an 8' step. There were tracks scattered throughout the entire area, this particular grouping is pretty impressive since there was enough there to measure the stride as you can see.

We carry plaster casting supplies in our evidence kit, but plaster is not exactly light to carry, especially into some of these areas. There were so many tracks that day we had to choose the best examples to cast with what plaster we had.

This is the larger of two different tracks we cast. The tips of this creature's toes did not leave a viable impression, so what you see here is the foot and base of the toes. We were able to see dermal ridges in areas of the finished cast. We estimate the foot of this individual at 20+ inches in length. Morphology is indicative of a male.
Robert Kryder calculates a realistic total length of the foot would be about 22" (20" min) @ est 5.7 to 1 based on height to foot length ratio = 12.62' tall (10.45 ' tall min) @ 1,800 lbs - 2,200 lbs +.

Later in the day we came upon these hand prints. Right away we were wishing we hadn't used all of our plaster. We would have forgone the footprints had we known that this was waiting for us. As you can see this is a deep print with excellently preserved features. You can make out fingers and the spread of a hand much like ours only considerably larger and thicker.

This is the location were we collected a hair sample for submittal to the Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid project. There was visible damage at this location, we believe this was caused by the subject climbing up the ravine.

Finally we have a video of the actual hair transfer under sterile conditions.
