Former Pennsylvania Police Officer Says Bigfoot and UFOs are Connected

Fred Saluga of the Fayette County Pennsylvania Bigfoot Research Project (photo:Karl Polacek | Trib Total Media)  

“You get a lot of reports (on Bigfoot and UFOs) from out here in Fayette County...They may be inter-dimensional beings.” --Fred Saluga

Fred Saluga heads the Fayette County Pennsylvania Bigfoot Research Project. While doing a presentation on August 8th 2015, he gained some attention from the local press. You can read an excerpt below where he expands on his suggestion that Bigfoots may not be from this planet.

“They may be inter-dimensional beings,” Saluga said. He pointed to beings that disappear into thin air and Bigfoot trails that last for only a few feet.

Saluga said that there have been many sightings over the years from the Republic area where he grew up. Another hot spot is in the Dunbar area.

According to Saluga, the creatures have been reported for hundreds of years, as early as about 1500 A.D. and from every continent on the planet.

Native Americans called Bigfoot “Sasque” (translated as “Don't know what it is”) or “Sasquatch” to the early settlers in North America.

Some have suggested that the beings are alien transplants, shape shifters or creatures from another dimension.

Dr. Matthew Johnson: I'm telling the truth about the SOHA portal.

depiction of guardians of an inter-dimensional portal 
John [Carlson] and Adam [Davies] accidentally triggered and opened up a portal. Out of the portal came about 3 foot tall, two of them, guardians of the portal." --Dr. Matthew Johnson;

I define Dr. Matthew Johnson's Bigfoot chapters in three phases. The Encounter, Cloaking Revealed, and The Portal.

PHASE 1: The Encounter | July 2000
Dr. Matthew Johnson's Bigfoot history begins at Oregon Caves National Park in Southern Oregon on July 1st 2000. You can read his a detailed BFRO report of his encounter. Here's the very short version. After exiting a cave, Dr. Johnson was with his family when he was alerted by a foul smell and loud vocalizations. After walking away from his family to take care of "business" he scanned downhill towards them and saw a Bigfoot. If you have ever heard Dr. Johnson recall this story in person, he gets very emotional at this point. This is the point where he expresses his concern for his family's safety. 

The encounter was huge bigfoot news for the mainstream media and went viral, probably because of the embedded irony that Dr. Matthew Johnson was a psychologist telling a story that sounds nuts to the general public. He went on to do several national media interviews and kept to this non-paranormal version.

PHASE 2: 2011 Cloaking Revealed | June 2011
Fast-forward to 11 years later when Dr. Johnson had a conversation with only four people present. The conversation would be a milestone in the retelling of the Oregon Cave encounter.

Dr. Johnson was a guest speaker at Toby Johnson's (no relation) Sasquatch Symposium. Paranormal researcher Thom Powell was also in attendance as another guest speaker. A conversation between the two of them would reveal a huge detail missing from Dr. Johnson's retelling of his Oregon Cave encounter. The missing detail? The Bigfoot in Matthew Johnson's encounter had the ability to cloak.

PHASE 3: The Portal | June 2014
After years of keeping his Southern Oregon Habituation Area (SOHA) to himself, Dr. Matthew Johnson began to invite hand-picked researchers to his bigfoot habituation site. In June of 2014, Adam Davies and John Carlson were among the exclusive researchers allowed to camp at SOHA and what they encountered still defies explanation, although Dr. Matthew Johnson tried at his conference. At the conference Dr. Johnson talked about visible portals to other dimensions and half-sized bigfoots with glowing eyes.

The audio clip below is Bigfoot news and goes at a quick pace and is worth listening too.

The Patterson/Gimlin Bigfoot Film is Evidence for Skeptics, not Advocates

Phillip Morris and Bob Heironymous with Bigfoot Costume
"At the end of the day, there’s just too much dirt surrounding the Patterson film to use it as any reliable source for debate about the existence of Bigfoot..." --Micah Hanks; Mysterious Universe

In an article for, Micah Hanks revisits the Patterson/Gimlin film after a new stabilization is offered on Reddit. The thread on Reddit uses the new stabilization to argue the weakness of the P/G film as evidence. While Mr. Hanks believes the snew stabilization does not offer anything new to either side of the argument, he does have issues of using the P/G Film as the Holy Grail of Bigfoot evidence.

(New stabilization from Reddit User)

His issues with the film are mostly based on John Napiers concerns with Patty's Anatomy (for those uninitiated, Patty is the name affectionately given to the subject in the P/G film), Read one of Napier's arguments presented by Mr. Hanks below.
For starters, the creature displays a sagittal crest atop it’s skull; however, the subject also, rather famously, appears to possess female mammary glands (breasts). Among the great apes, we have the sagittal formation that occasionally appears, primarily among the male members of the species (gorillas and orangutans), rather the females. Hence, it seems rather out of place that the prominence on “Patty’s” head so greatly resembles a sagittal crest formation, since “she” would be the least likely of the sexes to possess this trait.
There can be an argument made that the sagittal crest is not a marker of gender, and more of an indication of vegetation-chewing diet. There are multiple examples of modern and relict female primates that have sagittal crests. Female Paranthropus also had sagittal crests. Mr h

Mr. Hanks also draws attention to Napier's critique of Patty's belly--or lack there of. The argument is if patty has a the diet that comes with a sagittal crest than she should also have the large intestinal track or belly that come with it. These arguments about Patty's anatomy can go back and forth forever. Which perhaps underlines Mr. Hanks premise. His final argument about mismatched data does get interesting.
Finally, the individual footprint length used to estimate relative height of the purported animal, matched to the distance between tracks left in the sand (which were measured at the scene of the purported observation at Bluff Creek) are inconsistent with the proportional ratio for expected stride. Primatologists, like Napier, who observed the film have pointed this out, although it remains one of the least-discussed aspects of the the film’s investigation which argues strongly against the animal in the film being genuine. To this, he noted in his 1972 book Bigfoot that the manner in which the subject appears to walk in the film looks very exaggerated: “All three factors should be consistent with each other. Could it be that the ‘exaggerated’ walk of Bigfoot was designed to magnify the normal step length, an effect which, in the event, failed miserably?”
It would be interesting to see anybody take on this final argument of the mismatch of data. head over to the website and read Micah Hanks entire article titled, "Maybe It’s Time We Forget About The Patterson Bigfoot Film".

Plant City, Florida Bigfoot Caught on Video

Frame from 22-second video of Plant City Florida Bigfoot
"A video that purports to show a large, man- or ape-like creature in Alderman’s Ford park has been making the rounds on the Internet." -- Tampa Tribune

The video is 22 seconds long and is quite a distance from the subject. As usual it is small, blurry and hard to define. The Tampa Bay article claims the video is making the rounds on the internet, while, at the time of this blog post, the YouTube video has only racked up 300 views. The video titled, "Skunkape Sighting Plant City," was published on June 5th of 2015 and the Tampa Bay article was published on August 12th of 2015.

The video may get a boost after the published article, but the current low viewership may be due to the low quality of content of the video. Watch the video below and judge for yourself.

Despite the video being  "posted on a number of websites and Facebook pages that track sightings of bigfoot" as the bigfoot news article reports, two of the closest residence have not heard of the sighting. Read the excerpt below.
A spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Parks Department said she hadn’t heard of any reports of bigfoot in any county park.

Laurie Champion, a Pasco County resident who runs a website,, that among other things tracks bigfoot sightings, said she hadn’t heard anything about the Plant City bigfoot.

Meet Ron Morehead. The man with the most impressive Bigfoot Audio.

Ron Morehead speaks at HopsSquatch Aug 16th
DATE: Sunday, August 16th 
TIME: 12:30-3:00
WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Ron Morehead of the Sierra Bigfoot Sounds

How did Ron Morehead get Sasquatch to come into his camp night after night and record their sounds and language? Ron reveals all (except the location) of his phenomenal recordings.

These are absolutely the best, hands down, Bigfoot sounds! Why? These are the only sounds that:

Ron Morehead is an ‘adventurist’; a positive ‘someone’ who loves life, but often lives it on the edge. As a SCUBA diver, he swam with the hammerhead sharks, has been filmed in Mexico’s Pacific Ocean riding the backs of giant manta rays, and been a safety diver for the filming of Right whales in Patagonia.

As a private pilot, Ron has flown his own aircraft from the Alaskan bush to the Costa Rican jungle. Besides travelling to the ancient Mayan civilizations in the Yucatan, he has also flown into a remote jungle area of Chiapas (Southern Mexico) on an anonymous Mayan discovery expedition. What he saw was thought to be one of the last remaining strong-holds of the Mayan people. He has ventured into Western Nepal’s Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve to help assess the tiger population, explored the jungles of Bardiya on elephants, and been in the wilderness of Siberia looking for evidence of the Russian Yeti. He has made two trips in South America exploring the enigmatic structures and the non-human remains of the pre-Inca people.

Over the years Ron has been interviewed by several radio programs and has been televised by the BBC and other learning channels. He was a guest speaker at the Darwin Museum in Moscow (Russia) and for years he has given presentations at symposiums and conferences about his Bigfoot/Sasquatch experiences. He has openly shared his knowledge and accounts with others. His book, “Voices in the Wilderness,” chronicles his 40 years of researching the enigma. Besides his book, he has produced two CDs with actual Bigfoot vocalizations, focusing on the interaction he and others had with these forest giants.

July 1st is Officially Joe Beelart Day

Today and every July 1st we celebrate all things Joe Beelart. Click the following link to hear Kick Ass Oregon History Interview Joe Beelart 

On May 17th Kick Ass Oregon History chatted with Author Joe Beelart about his new book The Oregon Bigfoot Highway. The interview was conducted during and after Joe's presentation at HopsSquatch

While your at it, head on over to Amazon and purchase Joe's book.

You can learn more about the The Oregon Bigfoot Highway at the Official Oregon Bigfoot Highway Website. Below is a teaser about the book.

This book is a collection of Bigfoot sightings, Bigfoot related incidents and … happenings in the wild area of the upper Clackamas and Breitenbush River drainages. In it we explore seemingly genuine accounts relating to Bigfoot along the main road between Estacada and Detroit, and side roads that venture into secret haunts of the Clackamas Ranger District of the Mount Hood National Forest

These accounts span over one hundred years and were reported by persons of diverse professions from lawyers to loggers. The quantity and similarity of these reports caused us to conclude that this is, indeed, The Oregon Bigfoot Highway.

Peter Mayhew Confirms He Required Bigfoot Protection as Chewbacca

Peter Mayhew sans Chewbacca mask
"Yes, this is absolutely true." --Peter Mayhew responding on Reddit to rumors of requiring  protection from Bigfoot hunters while in Chewbacca costume.

Peter Mayhew recently reprised his role as Chewbacca in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  On June 23rd 2015, someone posted on Reddit that Peter Mayhew required protection from potential bigfoot hunters while he was in the Chewbacca costume. 
[Today I Learned] Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) was required to be accompanied by crewmembers who wore brightly-colored vests while in the forests of the Pacific Northwest filming scenes set on Endor, so as not to be mistaken for Bigfoot and shot.  
This is interesting, and definitely viral-worthy, but as a Start Wars nerd I'm pretty sure all the scenes of Endor were shot in Northern California (in the redwood Groves of Marin County and Del Norte County to be exact.

Because of the discrepancy of location I have to admit I was a little leery of the this factoid. Digging deeper I did find a supporting story written by Sean Whitley on Cryptomundo. The following excerpt is from 2011 and retells a story of how the filmakers were concerned for Peter Mayhew's safety in Bigfoot's backyard.
While shooting “Return of the Jedi” in the redwood forests of Northern California, Peter Mayhew, the seven foot, three inch actor who portrayed Chewbacca the Wookiee, was warned not to walk off set in costume for fear of being shot by hunters. “Remember, this is Bigfoot country,” he was told by concerned crew members. 
This is a little different than being surrounded by crew members wearing brightly-colored vests. No doubt the addition of being surrounded by crew-members on security detail makes the story a little more tantalizing.  one of the best ways to find out would be from Peter mayhew himself and how would we get him to respond to such a trivial detail. Apparently Peter Mayhew has a confirmed reddit account and yesterday, June 22nd 2015, he was able to respond to the Bigfoot rumor.
JDawgSabronas: Yeah, I'd love some confirmation straight from the horse's wookiee's mouth.
PeterMayhew: Can confirm. Cheers, Peter Mayhew
Although the Pacific Northwest filming site is still in question as least we know Bigfoot hunters were a large concern on the set of filming Jedi and protection included not walking offset with the costume on and a squad of brightly colored crew-members.

Minerva Monster Screens at Ohio Bigfoot Conference

Minerva Monster will be screened at the Ohio Bigfoot Conference
"Watching 'Minerva Monster,' I was reminded of that old TV series 'Unsolved Mysteries,'"--Robert McCune, Independent Correspondent 

In the Summer of 1978 a family was convinced of seeing a bigfoot-like creature, known as the Minerva Monster, near their home. A sheriff claimed that hair samples were collected and taken to a Malone College lab. Unfortunately any trace of this evidence has since disappeared.

A movie based on the family's encounter has since been documented by first-time filmakers. The movie is another exciting feature of the Ohio Bigfoot Conference and will be screened Saturday.

Read more about the family encounter below as well as some information about the filmakers. The excerpt is from an article written by Robert McCune, an independent correspondent for

Family members described it as a big, manlike thing, with bowed legs, covered in hair. Not a man, not a bear. Some think it was Bigfoot, or in the sasquatch family. Whatever it was, the town of Minerva adopted it, and in local lore, it became the “Minerva Monster.”

The family’s story set off a sensational media storm. It blamed the creature for the rocks that pelted their house — and later, suspected it in the death of a dog. Police investigated, and after it made the newspapers, there were other “sightings” in the area. “Bigfoot hunters” descended on Minerva. Family members started to wish they had kept their “creature” to themselves.

Now this story is the subject of a documentary film by a Northeast Ohio crew, Small Town Monsters. “Minerva Monster” is directed by Seth Breedlove, of Wadsworth, and produced by Jesse Morgan and Alan Megargle, with an original score by composer Brandon Dalo.

This is clearly a passion project for these first-time filmmakers. With a camera, and little budget to work with, Breedlove and crew spent months interviewing eyewitnesses, and the sheriff and newspaper reporter who investigated the incidents nearly 40 years ago.

Watching “Minerva Monster,” I was reminded of that old TV series “Unsolved Mysteries,” on which host Robert Stack sometimes delved into the paranormal. That’s a compliment; I loved that show growing up.

NBC Affiliate Reports "Wild Man" Returns to North Texas

KTEN News of Texoma Reports return of the Wild Man a/k/a Bigfoot
"You can actually feel it in your body.  The only way I can describe it is like when a train is running real close to you and you want to just take off running," --Bill Gibson

After the news segment below you can read an excerpt from the supporting article posted on KTEN.COM - No One Gets You Closer

Bill Gibson and his family have been living in this house on the east side of town all their lives.   Bill recalls the first time he heard what people in the area call the "Wild Man of North Texas."  It was 40 years ago.

"You can actually feel it in your body.  The only way I can describe it is like when a train is running real close to you and you want to just take off running," said Gibson. 

Bill's son Jeremy was just ten years old when he first heard the sound.  He says he's been haunted by the creature ever since.

"I know what's out there.  I know it."  "What's out there?"  "Something big."

After years of silence, the Gibson's say the "wild man" has returned, waking them up in the mornings with it's howls.  But, this time they called in renowned Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi to investigate.

"We know that something has been through here in the last three days," Biscardi said.

We've all heard the stories.  But we can assure you, whether or not you believe in Bigfoot is the last thing on Biscardi's mind, because he says he's seen one.

"When first I started out I was a doubting thomas, excuse the pun.  But then after I saw one and I got real close, I said to myself my god," Biscardi said.

 Biscardi and his men found what they believed to be several large foot prints in a clearing about a mile away from the Gibson's home.  So, they set up a perimeter, hung bate and strapped infrared motion sensor cameras to the surrounding trees.

11-Year Old Bigfoot Researcher Looking Forward Ohio Bigfoot Conference

Cal Marks wins 1st Prize at his Science Fair
"I tell them, well, with all the sightings, photographs and videos for evidence, how can they all be hoaxes?" -- Cal Marks' retort to skeptics

The StarGazzette has an inspiring story of an ambitious 11-year old who is an aspiring cryptozoologist and Bigfoot researcher. His name is Cal Marks; he sleeps under an inflatable globe marked with sightings, a poster-sized pinned map New York, and thick binder of sightings by county. To top it off, he won his school's science fair on the topic of Bigfoot.

Learn more about Cal Marks in the excerpt below.
Meet Cal Marks, of Wellsburg, Bigfoot researcher and aspiring cryptozoologist. His mom calls this amiable 11-year-old "Calisquatch," a play off his name and interests.

"Some kids think I am crazy because I believe in Bigfoot. They are trying to tell me that Bigfoot is not real," said the Broadway Elementary School fifth-grader. "I tell them, well, with all the sightings, photographs and videos for evidence, how can they all be hoaxes?"

Cal hasn't seen a Bigfoot, though he and his brothers went looking during one family vacation to the Adirondacks. He described how he would outfit himself for his next expedition: "I'd take a camera, number one, and probably a weapon, just in case. There hasn't been any Bigfoot attacks, except for maybe one or two."

Cal's research into locations of Bigfoot sightings earned him first place as a fourth-grader at his school's science fair last year. He thinks field research as a cryptozoologist for such creatures as the Loch Ness monster or Jersey Devil would be a great career.

"For anybody who doesn't believe, do you know how many new species of animals just last year alone were found? There are so many," he said.
Cal's whole family is going with him to the Ohio Bigfoot Conference and is looking forward to meeting Bigfoot legend Bob Gimlin.

Tennessee Mayor Boast 2nd Finding Bigfoot Episode

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett
“[Bigfoot] always interested me, unusual animal stories and sightings and things like that...” --Mayor Tim Burchett

Knox News reports on Finding Bigfoot's return to Knox County, Tennessee. When Animal Planet's hit TV show aired the first visit to Tennessee it became one of the highest rated episode internationally. Read an excerpt below to find out what makes Knox County and the Mayor so nice they had to visit twice.

The episode chronicling their second visit to Tennessee aired this past Sunday, and the mayor is featured prominently in scenes at a “town-hall meeting” they held at the American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge. He first connected with the show’s producers a few years ago through local Bigfoot enthusiasts.

“When they came to town to visit, I talked to them about what was going on around here, and the local club,” says Burchett. “They fell in love with it, and came here to film the first show. I was told that it was the best-ranked show overseas that they’d had. So, they decided to come back.”

“Finding Bigfoot” cast and crew returned last September and filmed at various area locations, including ASME, Frozen Head State Park, and some scenic rural farm lands. The show’s images of the attractions and scenery of East Tennessee are actually of keener interest to Burchett than whether or not they locate a Bigfoot.
