They hunt and do all their work at night ... They frequently come in the night and steal their salmon from their nets and eat them raw. If the people are awake they always know when they are coming very near, which is most intolerable. Elkanah Walker, The Diary of Elkahah Walker 1838-1848
Cryptozoologists want you to believe that there are monsters running about in the world. And that we could find these amazing creatures if only we spent more time and money ... Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster are complete bullshit. Penn & Teller, Bullshit! s4e4: Cryptozoology, Showtime 2006
According to legend Bigfoot is a seven to nine feet tall hairy-ape like creature that walks on two feet. ibid.
The market for Bigfoot images is huge. ibid.
In order for science to accept the existence of Bigfoot or Sasquatch we need real evidence. We don’t need fuzzy photographs and we don’t need plastic footprints. Richard Ellis, research associate The American Museum of Natural History
Mormons seem to have a peculiar – and prejudiced – fascination with tales of a large, ominous, ape-like, black-skinned Bigfoot (who, they swear, is actually Cain), condemned by the Mormon God to wander the Earth where he ends up scaring the faithful into invoking the Mormon priesthood in order to drive the big, bad, black Bigfoot away. Steve Benson, RFM board post 17th August 2011, ‘Bigoted on Bigfoot: Why Mormons Believe in a Big, Black, Hairy, Degenerate, Sinful and Miserable Bigfoot Creature Named Cain’
Sightings of Bigfoot date back a thousand years. Natives of North America’s Pacific north-west long ago gave it a name: Sasquatch. Two-and-a-half meters tall and weighing over three hundred and fifty kilos, it’s been described as a massive primate. Unlike a gorilla, this animal walks on two legs. Best Evidence: Bigfoot, Discovery 2007
Of the thousands of people who have claimed over the years to have seen the creature, the best known are Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin. Their fifty-nine seconds of film  is either a key piece of evidence or an elaborate hoax. ibid.
The footprints from the site of the 1967 film were compared with over two hundred samples of mysterious big feet. Dr Meldrum has the largest collection of alleged Sasquatch tracks in the world. Because of the precise and consistent anatomy of the prints, widespread geographical locations, and corroboration by what are said to be credible sightings, he’s convinced that an undeniable pattern is emerging. ibid.
In the last fifty years over 3,700 Bigfoot sightings have been reported in the US and Canada. More commonly in the Pacific north-west than in any other region. Mystery 360: Bigfoot Revealed, National Geographic 2010
With coaching, an actor can imitate the walk of the Patterson Bigfoot. It’s an important piece of supporting evidence for the hoax theory. But this fact alone does not disprove it was a man in a fur costume. ibid.
If such a suit was virtually unavailable at the time, does that lead us to the conclusion that the Bigfoot was real? The creature in the film seems to have more anatomical detail than the technology of the 1960s allowed. In the film several muscle groups are visible in the lower limbs ... All the factors help the case that this is a living creature, not a vintage Hollywood costume. ibid.
The creature is known to native Americans as Sasquatch. Wild man. Known as Yeti. Or Bigfoot. With over four hundred sightings each year and hundreds of footprint files this mystery continues to provide us with clues about a possible un-catalogued animal. Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, Discovery 2003
In 1994 another video camera briefly captured a similar figure in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Washington State. Paul Freeman, a forest service employee at the time, had been noticing tell-tale footprints of a Sasquatch in the area. This time he had his camera ready, and captured something extraordinary. ibid.
Height, stride, bulk and speed can all be measured by comparing the moving animal to fixed objects seen in the backgrounds. The backgrounds of the Patterson and Freedman footage have changed dramatically over the years due to encroaching forest growth or human activity. However, the sight of the Memorial Day footage remains much as it did when the footage was recorded in 1996. ibid.
Now these casts were cast twenty years apart, hundreds of miles apart, yet they have the same ridge texture and rich flow pattern. Jimmy Chilcutt, former fingerprint examiner & primate fingerprint specialist
I was up-track in the mountains and I found these tracks: they look much like human footprints but they were eighteen inches long, six and a half across the ball of the foot, five and a half at the heel. Legend of Bigfoot, 1976
Bigfoot fever peeked in the early 70s after the release of sixteen seconds of footage shot by Roger Patterson in northern California. There’s Something Out There, CTV W5 1976
There stood a big hairy human-like creature. It appeared to be between six and seven feet tall. The creature looked at us for a few seconds, turned and walked slowly away. It was in a kind of loamy type soil; left good footprints. It walked directly away from us at just a slow stroll. Bob Gimlin, televised interview
I first saw that clip about thirty years ago and I thought it was a hoax then and I think it’s a hoax now. It looks very much to me like a man in a monkey suit ... The most convincing thing was the way the coat ripples – it is not attached as it were to the underlying flesh. Professor Michael Day, Natural History Museum
The most curious thing that I’ve found is in the leg proportions themselves. We have a very long upper leg and a very short lower leg by comparison. This particular configuration is exceedingly rare on human beings. The anatomical proportions of the body are extremely unusual, and suggest to me that it would be very very hard to find a human being who has the appropriate anatomy to wear a suit even if you made one. All of these add up to something that in my mind is biologically real, and not a human in any type of costume. Bill Munns, film researcher/graphic artist, given access to Gimlin/Patterson film
It just strikes me as unlikely that after all of these years there would be no concrete evidence of this extremely large primate, if it really existed. David Begun, University of Toronto
If there were large-bodied apes living in places that people frequent we would find bones; we would find fossils. David Begun
Essentially this is a dietary wasteland for an ape. The circumstantial evidence would indicate that Bigfoot simply could not exist. Apes are relatively big-bodied creatures for the most part. But more importantly they have big brains. And in order to supply those big brains with energy, apes have to eat quite energy-rich foods. How can these animals live in an environment that is so poor in high-quality foods? Large animals or large apes [that] live in a forest routinely make night nests in which to sleep and to be secure. We have never in the areas in which Bigfoot is said have lived ever found anything like a night nest. No primate that we know of has the ability of hibernate. Now this is a real problem. If you can’t hibernate, you can’t get away from the lack of food, you’re going to get very very very thin in a hurry or you’re going to die. So I think Bigfoot – the idea of it – becomes a physiological impossibility. Professor Nina Jablonski, primate specialist Pennsylvania State University
There’s no doubt in my mind that the Patterson film is a hoax. It is a human being in a fur suit ... There is no primate on the Earth that has a fur-line going down its spine; it doesn’t fit. Karl Korff, CEO TotalReseach
This Bigfoot film has been shown all over the world. It rather galls me because of the simple fact that it is one of the worst frauds perpetrated against the American public. Clyde Reinke, former ANE executive
Rancher and businessman Clyde Reinke makes this accusation after living with these secrets for almost fifty years: he has inside knowledge of the Bigfoot film hoax. In the early 70s Reinke worked for American National Enterprises or ANE, a film-distribution company in Salt Lake City. He claims that Roger Patterson also worked for the company. The World’s Greatest Hoaxes
I could distinctly see three large black figures. I would estimate the largest one to be between eight and nine feet. I could very plainly see they were upright on two legs. Todd Neiss, interview Unsolved Mysteries
I thought at first I had triggered an avalanche of some type until I saw a big black hairy mask behind all of those rocks and twigs. Elmer Skip Frombach junior, interview Unsolved Mysteries
The facial area wasn’t really covered with a lot of hair; eyes seemed normal ... Seven maybe seven and a half feet tall ... Maybe three hundred and fifty pounds. Sergeant Larry Gamache
