NOTICE: PPP will not work with, assist or give any information to any Bigfoot hunting group, that comes to Florida to capture, kill or even harass the Florida Bigfoot. "WE NEVER LIST"exact locations of sightings for this reason and none of our team members will divulge them either. Our team members have been harassed before and this is a waste of time. NO member of this team will give out any information on this or any other case information. We do not want to see this creature harassed, hurt, captured, or killed at the hands of anyone be they researchers, modern day PT Barnums or gun toting fortune hunters. Given how hot the quest for a Bigfoot body has become, right now we do not trust any of the Bigfoot hunting/research teams whatsoever at this point. Please do not contact us as we will not assist you in any way. We will report you to the Florida Wildlife commission, if you trespass in conservation areas, to harass or hunt this creature, as in the state of Florida, Bigfoot may not be protected by law, but all endangered species are and Bigfoot would qualify under that law.
These local area sightings are logged in as soon as we receive the reports. This section is updated often.
Well it seems that Bigfoot is back in Pasco county for the fall and winter.
The Florida Bigfoot has been sighted and continues to be active in Pasco county and Hillsborough county in 2011. We have been monitoring two clans and continue to do so at this time.
Oct. 8th 2011 From our case files:
Two hikers encountered a Florida BIgfoot on a dirt road, in a wooded area in Pasco county ...This creature was shiny, jet black and stood it's ground until the hikers retreated in the other direction. The sighting took place in broad daylight at about 6:00 in the evening, which is odd for this creature which is usually nocturnal and does not come out until after dark, let alone travel across a dirt road. The animal saw the hikers and after standing perfectly still and staring at them for over 4 minutes, it then left the road, and went off into the brush. They thought it was gone, but when they kept walking in that direction, it then loped out again into the middle of the road, to face off with them. They froze and watched the creature, from a distance of about a half a block down the road they were traveling on. The creature stood in the center of the road with it's feet planted in a wide stance and did not move. The witnesses got scared and left the scene very quickly. The creature remained in the road and watched them until they were out of sight. It did not pursue them.They estimated the size of this creature to be over 7 feet tall, and having a very thick build.
This sighting took place in one of our study areas, and we now know that the creatures have come back to this area probably for the winter months. PPP did find prints at the sighting location. This area is a perfect place for this creature as it has very thick forested tracks on both sides, as in the photo below, which came from the area that the creature darted into when it left the road briefly. This creature could easily vanish into this thick terrain, which goes on for a few miles in this area. There is a fresh water source and lots of things that this creature forages for, in search of food. We went to the location, and found that there is ample forested area for this creature to live here, with lots of fresh water and food sources. We took the photo below in the location of this siting. During this trek we also ran into a red tailed hawk, two black vultures, and a noisy pair of bald eagles.
We had our first Bigfoot reports of 2011 in March.
1. Two residents in mid Pasco county heard something enormous moving through the wooded easement behind their homes. These people live two houses away from each other and there have been many reports out of this area over the years. 3/2011
2. In north Pasco county: Recently this creature has been credited for destroying a shed, bending a John boat in half, and stripping the bark off a tree, to eat the wood borer grubs in the tree. 5/2011
3. It is also active in a Hillsborough area and has been doing some stealing of people's property there. 7/2011
4. Another report came in of the creature throwing rocks at a man who was about to take his canoe out fishing on the lake near his home in Northern Pasco. 8/2011
This page is updated often when reports come in, so keep an eye here for future sightings and activity of this creature.
Scroll down the page for other older sightings that have been reported recently.
From September thru November of 2010, we have received four reports of sightings of the Florida Bigfoot , in four separate counties. All were in areas where there is a significant amount of woodland, to support these creatures. We also got our first report for 2011, just a week ago. Locations are never revealed to protect the Florida Bigfoot. We will however document any evidence we collect.
Latest on Florida Bigfoot: VIDEO OF ATTACK ON OUR TRAIL CAMERA.... READ STORY BELOW AND WATCH FILM. Posted 1 / 29 / 2011
We have been monitoring a known Bigfoot travel path in Pasco county with a stealth game camera, for about a month now. This is not a game trail but an area where three sightings have taken place in one year's time. Recently, something accosted the camera and did some damage to the glass that covers the motion and heat sensors. The camera shows a video of something moving the camera and tugging at it. The camera took this video in infrared, so the white out factor, caused by the close proximity of the perpetrators fingers on the camera, made it impossible to tell exactly what had a hold of the camera. The camera is 8 feet up on a tree, and was still strapped to that tree, although moved from it's original position and displaying the damage to the glass, that covers the IR motion sensor and heat sensor beams and or electric eyes.. The camera is still operational and usable as the lens is fine.
Another Bigfoot investigator, who is a friend of mine named James C. Whitfield, from Ocala, made an interesting suggestion to me awhile back. He suggested that since the creature has night vision and sees in a different light spectrum than we do, it is possible, that he can see those infrared beams from the sensors and knows something is amiss. Now, since the glass over those very infrared beam sensors has been chipped away, as if by a fingernail, that makes me wonder if James may indeed be right. Perhaps the creature decided to check out what it was. He may have wanted to shut off those assaulting beams or figure out how they worked or where they came from.
Something has tripped the camera many times before this video was captured, but there seems to be nothing as far as wildlife in the picture. The video captured the night of the injury to the camera, lets us know that something did in fact grab that camera and damage it. What, that something is... we do not know. What we do know is that something also moved in and out of the frame at a high rate of speed during the ordeal, behind whatever had hold of the cam. Wendy observed this and brought it to my attention. Nate, and I took the video frame by frame and discovered something very strange. It appears as if something is in the frame. There were images of what may have been a hand with short stubby fingers and a face looking out from behind some foliage. Here we include this video presentation for you to watch and decide for yourself. This video was captured in December of 2010 but we did not discover this image until recently when we again scanned the film. Trail cam videos are always grainy and of low quality, which is why we enhanced the mid tones for the close up and still shots. Here it is:
Sorry folks but this video went viral and it was using all our bandwidth here at the site, so now you have to go to youtube to see it at : click here to see it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpNcxqvQndA
Does Bigfoot sleep here? 2/3/2011 We found these palm frond nest like structures in the woods near several Bigfoot sighting areas. Is something making these things and sleeping there?
Is whatever it is also leaving it's footprints behind?
Is this the sound of whatever leaves these prints?
BIGFOOT EXPEDITION PASCO COUNTY NOV. 21 2010
We went out to investigate this Florida Bigfoot location because we received a report and a request that we come out and try to find out just what was going on in this conservation area. The witnesses had sightings of a large,hairy hominid and also heard what they claimed, sounded like gorillas in the swamp, near the river. This area is a dense forest with swamps, rivers, and a lake. This is a perfect area for this creature to thrive, as there are plenty of fresh water sources and lush vegetation, wildlife and fish to provide many sources of food. This is a miles long jungle that offers a very secluded habitat, with very little human traffic. There have been many sightings of this creature in this area over the years, so these latest sightings, came as no great surprise to us.
Pete, Chris, Braxton and I went out on this investigation. I thought it would make a nice trip for Braxton and since this is not a haunts case, it was safe for him to go along. We set out on a four mile hike into the forest, with our guides, through all kinds of terrain to get to the locations of the sightings. We did get pictures, and video of our adventures. We went through swamps, fields of pollen, sharp saw grass, dense forest, and along a steep ridge that runs along a big lake. It is no wonder that this creature can stay so well hidden in this area, as everything else seems to do the same. We did not encounter any of the other indigenous creatures there either, except for an alligator, who was already swimming away from us as we approached. If we could spend the entire day there and not see any of these plentiful and usual animals, such as deer, boars, snakes,etc. it is not so hard to imagine that the Bigfoot could hide out just as well. The weather was beautiful, and the scenery amazing.
It was our hope to get some good evidence on this trip. One thing that we really wanted was to get some good footprint casts and perhaps some other evidence of the presence of this creature. We did find some signs of the presence of these creatures, as there were trees uprooted, branches bent and ripped down, left hanging, and many possible nesting sites. We did some call blasts and some wood knocking. We did receive responses to these wood knocks. At one point we were on the opposite bank of th river from something that was in the palmetto rushes, making sounds and that finally took off, making a big ruckus through the brush. We did not see it clearly but it was huge. It had been watching us for some time and we did get some strange sounds on audio tape. We got growls, grunts, and other noises that we can not identify, but sound somewhat apelike. We have included these audio files here, for you to listen to, but first here is the photo journal:
AUDIO FILES; We did get some sounds on audio, here are those clips. The sounds are in between out talking, and the explanations for the clips are beneath the players.
This is a growl sound that you will hear right after I say "the roots are sticking up." It is right before the man speaks.
Here there is some strange sounds after the man speaks.
There is a grunt after the man makes the whoop call blast.
Here we got a wood knock and then some strange sounds which I heard at the time.
Here is some video footage of our investigation. It is our hope to return and do a night vigil at this location to see what crops up and see if we can get some more evidence and learn more about the Florida Bigfoot.
VIDEOS MAY TAKE A MINUTE TO LOAD...
PASCO CRYPTO SIGHTED AGAIN ON JULY 14TH 2010 IN RESIDENTIAL AREA: from our case files
A DARK BROWN, THIN CREATURE ABOUT 5 FEET TALL WAS SEEN RUMMAGING ABOUT IN THE OPEN FRONT PORCH OF A RESIDENT'S HOUSE AT ABOUT 1:25 AM, WHEN THE RESIDENT CAME HOME FROM THE CONVENIENCE STORE. THE WITNESS NOTED THAT THE HAIR ON THE CREATURES BACK WAS VERY SPARSE IN SOME AREAS, AND THAT IT LOOKED SICKLY, AND EMACIATED. THIS CAUSES US TO WONDER IF THE YOUNGER MEMBERS OF THIS BIGFOOT FAMILY ARE ACTUALLY STARVING, AND UNABLE TO FIND FOOD. BIGFOOT IS NOT KNOWN TO BE SLENDER AND USUALLY HAS A SOLID COAT OF FUR WITHOUT MISSING PATCHES AS THIS WITNESS DESCRIBED. THIS WOULD ALSO EXPLAIN WHY, THIS CREATURE WHO NORMALLY KEEPS IT'S DISTANCE FROM HUMANS WOULD COME SO CLOSE TO A RESIDENTIAL HOME. THE CREATURE JUST LEFT IMMEDIATELY UPON BEING DISCOVERED, AND NO INCIDENT ENSUED.
Pasco Crypto sighted again on Sept. 30th 2009
On September 30th right before dusk, a woman heard noises in the brush behind her home. She looked out the window and saw something she could not believe standing in the clearing of the woods behind her home. She went outside to get a better look. She described what she saw as, a very tall, hair covered creature that stood on two legs. She said it looked like a Bigfoot. When the creature looked over and became aware of her, he calmly walked away. She then, feeling a bit unsettled, decided to report it. She called me as most of the folks in her area know I have been working this case. We did go out there but were unable to find anything, as far as evidence.
Update on the Pasco crypto /Our case files/August 2009:
Two separate people, living two doors away from eachother, called on the same night to report something large moving through the woodline behind their homes that was also growling loudly. Both of these homes are on the woodline. These two neighbors do not know each other well, as one just moved there, and had never even spoken to the other yet.
The first one who called this in was the man, who was injured in a brush with this creature a few months back, see article below in past updates. The other call was from a woman, who just moved in and was startled right out of her bed by the ruckus and the growling. Both claimed that they had not heard a growl like this one before and neither could associate the growl, with any animal they had heard before. The man described it as a gutteral growl and the woman as a deep ,loud growl that was very breathy in between. The woman called it in again saying she heard it three nights between last week on Saturday,and last night, which was Thursday.We are monitoring this area and this situation. we hope to get these sounds on tape, and probe the woods with our infrared on the next occasion that this takes place. We are going out there again.
This growling thing is something we have heard before from many people in this area in Pasco from past inquiries. Since we know of the presence of some strange creature there, we do consider these reports, even the growling reports, as they all tie in eventually.
UPDATE ON THE PASCO CRYPTO MARCH 2009:
A MAN DRIVING IN HOLIDAY FLORIDA SAW THIS CREATURE THAT HE DESCRIBED AS A BIGFOOT, WHICH HE SPIED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD BY THE WOODLINE. hE SAID IT WAS ABOUT 7 OR 8 FEET TALL, STOOD ON TWO LEGS AND WAS COVERED IN DARK HAIR.
UPDATE ON THE PASCO CRYPTO;OUR CASEFILES/ December 18th 2008 Sighting
It seems the Abominable Swamp Slob is back:
A pasco county woman, returned home late one night on December 18th. She rolled into her driveway at 2:00 AM in a rural area. As her headlights shone into her front yard she saw, what she thought was a large dog with shaggy brown hair, down on all fours near her ornamental fish pond. Not wanting to encounter this animal, she flashed her headlights in hope of scaring it off so she could enter her property. The animal seemed to move off at high speed with a loping gate to the right of the property.
The woman exited her car and went cautiously in the front gate. She took two or three steps and then looked to her right, and saw, standing near her garage about sixty feet away, a man sized creature. on two legs rather than four, covered in shaggy brown hair. Alarmed and terrified she ran into the house, locked her doors and contacted us. I went to the scene the next morning and did see what appeared to be a large bare footprint in the sand near the tall bushes that border the garage on the right side.
This is the same area where the man in the article below was attacked, back in September. I took photos of this print but the photos are not clear enough to show it satisfactorily by my standards, so I have not posted them here. I hope to get better shots in the upcoming investigation of the area.
I think the fish may be a source of attraction to this omnivorous creature. There have been chickens disappearing in this same neighborhood at two locations, but of course it could be raccoons or other natural predators. But usually a raccoon will just make off with one chicken not three at a time.
The chickens that were consumed at the scene and not carried off, had their heads ripped off and just the breast meat consumed. This is another oddity to me, as coons and other predators usually eat all parts of the chicken. Some of the residents in this neighborhood have hard strange sounds at night and heard heavy footsteps outside ,crunching in the dry leaves on their properties at night.
The wooded area behind these residences is sectioned off by a four foot chain link fence that runs the entire length of the block where the houses begin. Upon investigating the area immediately behind the homes, we found that at the end of the fence where it meets up with an even higher fence, a portion of the four foot fence has been mashed down to about a foot and a half tall, as if something just stepped on it with a lot of weight and crushed it down. I believe this is how this creature has gained access to the residential neighborhood where all this is going on. It can then move through the safety of the tree and vegetation cover and gain access over the back fences of the homes that even have fences at all, as some do not.
DECEMBER 23rd 2008 Sighting? Our casefiles...
We also had a report of a large black creature the size of a bear that was seen lying in the road on a highway four blocks from these homes. This came in only five days after the woman encountered something in her yard. We got to the scene within a half and hour and the creature must have lumbered off. We are assuming it had been hit by a car and later awoke and left the roadway.
There were two separate motorists who saw the thing along with the passengers of the vehicles. They both went home to call someone about the creature which they thought was injured or dead. One of the motorists happens to know us from the case and called us immediately.
We spoke with all the witnesses, who claimed it was curled up and was the size of a bear, but they could not get a look at it's face and did not want to exit their vehicles out of fear, that the wounded animal might be aggressive, if it was still alive. There have been no bears in this area of Pasco for over fifty years or more. So what did they see on the roadside? Both motorists claim to have driven around it, as it partially blocked the road. Even more curious is where did it go in such a short time, if it was actually that badly wounded?
We will continue to post updates on this as they become available.
THIS REPORT CAME IN ON 9/13/2008;OUR CASEFILES/
STRANGE ANIMAL ATTACK IN PASCO COUNTY;
A man in Pasco County sustained injuries on his arm in an attack by an unknown animal or entity on 9/13/2008 at 4:30 am. This was reported to us and we are including the story here with photos of his injuries.
The man got up at 4:30 am and went to the kitchen to get something to drink. He heard a persistent tapping or knocking on the kitchen window. He lives in a mobile home in a rural area. His windows are at a height of almost six feet from ground level. Upon looking out the window he saw nothing in the darkness, The tapping resumed when he walked away from the window, so he went outside to see what could be the cause of this sound. He heard some rustling from behind the fence in his yard. The fence is covered in wild grapevine just like most of the fences in this area ,which border the woods. As in this picture below.
When the man went to look over the fence the vines were blocking his view so he reached out with his arm to move some of the vines aside. When he did so, he claims that something grabbed his arm and started pulling him into and almost over the fence. He said it felt like two hands grabbed his arm, one at the forearm and one at the bicep. He is a large man weighing in at about 250 lbs. and is over six feet tall. A former war veteran and former biker, he is not easily scared or given to panic, but he did become alarmed and tried to pull his arm away from his assailant who seemed to be pulling with a tremendous strength and force on his arm. He finally did wrench his arm free by literally pulling it from the grasp of whatever had a hold of it. During this struggle he received some severe scratches and wounds from what felt like the nails of this thing. See below:
Whatever did this to this man, was extremely strong and the scratches and gouges left behind were flat, and about almost one eighth of an inch wide. Some were deeper than others and they were spaced wide apart. There was some minor bruising around some of them.
The man is seen here, laying his arm over the fence as he did that night. This particular fence is about four feet high. There are no thorns on grapevines or any of the vines on the fence, as we checked, this out. No known creatures in Florida have hands of the size he described and these scratches are too far apart to have been caused by a cat or raccoon.
A human being would have left wider scratches of a much different fashion with surrounding skin abrasions from the scraping of human type nails. There were also some finger like bruises present on his arm as well, big finger bruises at that. So what grabbed this man? Was it a crypto? Was it a paranormal entity? What has that kind of strength? We don't know but, we plan to continue the investigation into this occurrence. In the meantime, anyone who has a strange encounter such as this, please let us know about it.
We are not disclosing this man's name or the location where he lives for his privacy and the purpose of keeping curious folks out of what might be the territory of some dangerous creature at this time. But we would like to hear from anyone in Pasco county who has had an encounter with a creature that resembles the Florida Bigfoot.
This particular man is someone we know very well and he is not given to making up stories or hallucinations. He is a good ole boy who pretty much keeps to himself and lives on the woodline with his adult son and his girlfriend, and two pit bull dogs. Which reminds me of an interesting detail. The dogs never barked that night as they do when a human intruder comes around, in fact they did not even accompany him out of the house as they normally would under such circumstances. That also makes me wonder what they sensed that they wanted no part of. We are going to be investigating this case, and will post our findings here,when they become available, if we find anything.
Year 2007: Elfers Florida near Moog road...
Some people came face to face with the Florida Bigfoot in the woods at the end of Moog road near Madison. The encounter was just basically a staring contest but the creature did get very close. It showed no sign whatsoever of aggression.
