Copycat Bigfoot fakes are bound to happen!
The Bigfoot Evidence site is has been talking with Stacy Brown about the recent Myakka Bigfoot sighting. Apparently as they are following up, the park rangers are reporting that they encountered a person in a Bigfoot/gorilla suit near the sighting location and that they ran off when approached.
We just received word from Stacy Brown Jr. in Myakka Florida, that our coverage on the Skunk ape story may have presented an opportunity for pranksters to interfere with his investigation. Yesterday, a park ranger reportedly chased of a man wearing a Bigfoot costume. Apparently, the man was holding up traffic, causing a scene a few miles from where the original sighting took place. It’s unclear whether this same person is responsible for the previous Skunk ape sighting or just an opportunist looking for media attention. – Bigfoot Evidence
Here is the video of their interview with Stacy Brown talking about how after the initial reports, that it makes sense that someone would try and hoax everyone now. Seems like a stupid move considering the natural and man made risks of being out there in a Bigfoot outfit, but humans are endemically a bit slow.
