Transcript of Bigfoot
We may all be diverse, but all in all we are the same.
This symbol represents the community that was built around Bigfoot and other crypt creatures. This is the logo of the Ohio Bigfoot Conference that held the Believe It Tour.
The big foot poem connects to big foot because it describes someone that just got eaten by big foot. It describes big foot as a large brown and gray creature with razor sharp claws. The Big Foot in this poem thought of the person as another meal . If you appear to be scared then big foot will come after you. For the most part, big foot is just another wild animal in the forest.
At first glance your eyes go to Bigfoot and then the person. Person is a shadow that foils Bigfoot. Hence we know that the art is about the creators thoughts on Bigfoot. This image of Bigfoot makes him bigger than the person and resembles an orangutan. The creator may think of Bigfoot as being an evolved orangutan. It looks as if the creator of this picture thinks that, as people, we could befriend him. This piece of artwork matters to those who strongly believe in Bigfoot and think we could create peace between us. Seeing how the art is expressed as a friendly gesture we can infer that the creator could be a peacemaker and a conservationist. The purpose of this picture is to put the thought of unity into everyone's minds. It could affect how other people are toward the myth of Bigfoot.
Hiking down a forest trail, In the woods of Washington. I decide to blaze my own path Just to have some fun
Swiftly swiping branches
Out of my own way
I see a ball of fur
A shade of brown and gray
" Aurgh" he says as he looks Bamboozled, I stare back
He stands on his two feet
Ready to pounce and attack
Running is truly fun
But not at this particular time
He is gaining on me
So up the tree i choose to climb
One hand over the other
i think i just saw
The creature breaking the tree
With his razor sharp claw
Hitting the ground hard
Right on top of a root
Last thing that I ever saw
Was me getting eaten by Big Foot
5 Key People
Roger Patterson was born Feb. 14 1933 and died Jan. 1972. Roger is a rodeo rider but he is most famous for filming a shaky 60 second video of Bigfoot. It was shot in Northern California in 1967. After it was recreated by scientists in a simulation, they agree that the footage was most likely real.
Grover Krantz was born in Nov. 5 1931 and died Feb. 14 2002. He was a physical anthropology professor. He is the first serious academic person to dedicate himself to the research of Bigfoot. His theory is that it is a descendent of Gigantopithecus, a species of ape. He believes that the Patterson film is real and is against wiping out the Bigfoot species.
Rene Dahinden was born in Switzerland, 1930 and died in Canada, 2001. He was a dairy farmer until he became very interested in Bigfoot. He became Canada's first and maybe only full - time Bigfoot hunter. He was able to own 51% of the rights of the Patterson video, and was close friends with John Green.

There is a huge community in cryptozoology, or the study of animals that exist through belief. Within this community, there is the belief of Bigfoot, an ape - like creature that has awed and frightened people for generations. There is a whole independent culture around this topic, which is what this project is going to be focused on.
Albert Ostman was born in 1893 and died in 1975. He was a Canadian prospector and traveled to British Columbia in 1924 to search for lost gold. It was there that he was allegedly kidnapped by Bigfoot and held prisoner for six days. Afterwards, he was proven to have a sound mind and even signed the Solemn Declaration, which indicates his story is true under the Canadian Evidence Act. This story is used by many Bigfoot believers as evidence that Bigfoot does exist.
John Green was born Feb. 12, 1927 and is currently 86 years old. He is a retired Canadian journalist and is the leading researcher in the Bigfoot conspiracy. He also wrote several books about the Bigfoot topic. He is one of the most significant supporters of the Albert Ostman kidnapping story, and has so many reports of evidence of Bigfoot, some people call him "Mr. Sasquatch."
