Ghillie Suit Costume Creating Bigfoot Sensationalism

( — May 17, 2013) Lynden, WA — For many years people have been searching for a creature called Bigfoot.  Even with organizations dedicated to finding this creature there has yet to be any solid evidence regarding its existence.

One night in August of 2012, a Bigfoot publicity stunt ended up with a man dead and 2 teenage girls potentially traumatized. A man wearing a Ghillie suit attempted to recreate a Bigfoot sighting by wandering along Highway 93 in Kalispell MT.

Wearing a camouflage suit made him difficult to see and he was struck by two cars. What was meant to be a harmless prank concluded with his unfortunate death.

Most of the photos and videos claiming proof are extremely blurry and shaky, which questions their credibility. Some of these publicity stunts are nothing more than people in Ghillie suit costumes.

Ghillie suits are a type of camouflage worn by military snipers since the Vietnam War. They incorporate string material called Jute to help a person blend into their surroundings.

Are other “sightings” nothing more than elaborate gorilla costumes modified to match the description of this creature? A quick internet search reveals these costumes to be readily available.

The existence of the Sasquatch is strongly supported by groups such as the North American Wood Ape Conservancy (NAWAC). They have been in existence since about 1999 and part of their mission statement is “To investigate and conduct research regarding the existence of the unlisted primate species we refer to as the wood ape, also known as the Sasquatch or Bigfoot”

NAWAC is a non-profit organization with a team of “volunteer investigators, scientists and naturalists”.  With a team of such qualified individuals documenting the search of Bigfoot, you would think some solid proof of existence would have been recorded by now.

You can check out their site for the current evidence which include print moldings, hair samples and of course the infamous 1967 Roger Patterson film.
