From Darkwing: This appeared to be an attempt to use the MABRC as a conduit for the release of a hoax that would benefit the advertising of a movie currently about to be released. They sent the photo to a MABRC Researcher, apparently in hopes that the MABRC would release the photos to the public and start the hoax rolling. Little did they suspect that after the MABRC agreed not to release them, that the MABRC would keep their word and not release them, effectively killing their attempt for the hoax to go live. ElectricBigfoot was sent the first contact because of his interest in the Seven Chutes Creature and the hoaxers tried to use that as their entryway into the MABRC with this hoax. I put this message here on his post, simply because it's the first post in the thread about this, and wanted everyone to know the background info here. Be assured, ElectricBigfoot had no part in the hoax, period. Just want to make that clear outright, so there is no misconceptions.

As many of you know, I am interested in the researching Bi-Pedal canine reports received mostly from Wisconsin and Quebec.

Guys I just got off the phone with an individual in Northern Quebec who claims to have several very clear photographs of a creature that looks, as he says “Like a much older version of what is in my photo.” (See http://www.beastofsevenchutes.com). He also says that along with approx 15 photographs, he has clear video of the subject from approx 70 feet away.

He says the photos and video, taken in Northern Quebec, have been analyzed by several digital experts. He claims he is working with attorneys and they are so impressed they are backing a documentary about the photos. According to him, the experts have said that they are either the real thing or someone went through a lot of trouble to fake.

This person claims to spend a lot of time in the remote Boreal forests, as he calls the region, of Northern Quebec where he says the creatures live. He said that the creature he photographed is trapped on an island right now, that it went to the island when there was an ice bridge this past winter and that it became stranded when the ice thawed. He is planning a trip back in October before the ice returns but after the foliage from the trees falls, so that they will be able to see into the brush.

He is going to send me one of the photos, I have been asked not to share it with anyone. Though I did get permission to share the story. I will advise when and if I receive the photo.

I received the photo last night...

The person contacted me because he says it is the same species as the creature in the B7C photo and they may want to use the B7C photo in the documentary. He said I have permission to talk about the photo he sent, just cannot show it at this time.

It was shot in Oct 2007, just after breakfast. Here is a description of it.

The ground is snow covered, looks like several feet of snow. The photo looks like a typical forest scene in snow. Hardwood tree trunks and a few evergreens, looks like the sky may be overcast, but there is plenty of contrast and light because of the snow.

Brush is not too thick, can see clearly probably 100 feet in most directions before the trees gets thick.

There is what looks to be a large root system sticking up out of ground, in the middle of the photo, looks like a large tree fell over and the roots are exposed. Seems to be plenty of context to get an estimated height of the root. He said the subject was kneeling at the roots of the tree when he first saw it. Then it rose and headed off into the woods.

There is something clearly standing next to the root, the right of it. The snow is behind it. It is staring right at the photographer. You can see long flowing grayish hair everywhere. The whole body is covered with it. You can see the whole body, except for the bottom of the feet which are in the snow.

It is eerie, it almost looks like a man in a long fur coat, you can see the right arm/hand lifted from the side of the body just a bit. The left arm is lifted horizontally in front of it, blended with the front of the body. You can see eyes which seem sunken, and the shape of it's head. The body is light gray with the snow behind it. Cannot see facial features, there seems to be hair flowing downward where it's nose or snout would be.

The photographer says that they have a total of 11 photos, and 2:35 minutes of HD video that his partner shot of it. The camera was taking about 3 seconds to reset between shots. I have only seen one photo, and he said he sent me the worst one.

I have looked in the general region where he says it was taken. Seems to be very very remote. It was in Quebec, near the border with Ontario.

Quebec is 594,860 square miles.

It is located in the eastern part of Canada, and is the largest province in Canada.

Alaska 656425 square miles

Quebec 594,860 square miles

Texas 268601 square miles

California 163707 square miles

Quebec is in purple (2).

There is only one guy we know to have truely authentic pictures of a Bigfoot, His name is Jim Jardineau , they where taken Oct 2007 in the deep sections of the Tamagami Islands, 11 photos, on an island where a stranded Bigfoot was caught by spring thaw and could not swim off the island. The pictures are real , High res ,and shocking in my veiw. On top of it, these guys dont care who believes they just know allready.

Jeff Meldrum needs to see the Tomagami Bigfoot shots They are truely astouding photos, acording to rumor the tomagami bigfoot is still traped on the island and they are planning to return fall 2008 The beast is descibebed as very old with a broken left arm or severly compromised, he is 8 ft and some , and has long grey molted hair that fades through browns and blacks his face is grey brown, beady black blood shot eyes

Pics of the Tomagami islands Bigfoot have been sent to the Ontario Sasquatch web site and might be available soon. pending permision, they really are astounding photos

IMO it's a hoax. I would like to see Jim in the photo where he's standing by the fallen tree's roots standing exactly were the imitation Sas is standing. Jim could be 10 foot away from the roots to make himself look small so the roots look bigger than they actually are. It looks like a make up job around the eyes and the same color is on the mask to help it blend end. The eyes look totally human also.

A story that must be told.

That is a really good guilley suit.

Thinking outside the box here... With all do respect I dont think we should debunk this yet... This shows that this BF is ~8'6" in height. How big is this mask? It would have to be very large to scale for this costume.

Darkwing wrote:
It does appear to show that the creature is larger justbman, but upon closer examination, you will notice that Jim is standing behind the fallen tree at a possible distance of maybe 10 to 15 feet farther than what the creature is to the camera. By an optical illusion, it makes the creature appear to be taller than Jim.

Also what is giving it the appearance of a hoax, is a brown bag full of equipment that is in the picture with the creature. It is in both pictures to the left of the stump.
