Many commenters (such as the one below) believe this to be a hoax.
Matt Knapp It's
always been known that they were making a student film. Keep in mind
this video has been around for awhile. So yes, I realize in that aspect,
the man running, etc. was staged. However, after it had ran it's course
within the Bigfoot community, the
story did come out that it was indeed a hoax and that they had a
gymnast friend of theirs wear a costume and play the part. I've looked
for it on the internet as well and have been unable to find the story,
but I assure you it did happen. I'm not the only person who knows of
this. As I stated I believe it was on a documentary, but I'm just not
certain. It's been some years back.
The "they" you refer to in regards to bigfootencounters.com
is Bobbie Short, who has been in this community longer than the vast
majority. Back when correspondence on the subject was carried out
through hand-written letters. Before the internet. I seriously doubt she
didn't do her research on the matter, and is probably aware of the same
info I've given here. If you don't wish to believe that it happened,
that's fine with me. If the video was 100% authentic, it still holds no
value to the research community.
