the early afternoon of October 20, 1967, in the Six Rivers National
Forest, California, near the Oregon border, Roger Patterson and
Robert Gimlin, equipped with a 16mm hand-held Kodak movie camera,
"spotted a female Bigfoot down on the creek gravel sandbar....While
running toward the creature, Patterson took 24 feet of color film
footage. During this time, the creature quickly but calmly walked
away across the sandbar into the woods.....Fearing a possible confrontation
with the creature and perhaps others of its kind, the two men decided
not to pursue their prey into the forest...
"The film has been studied by
many scientists throughout the world who continue to remain divided on the authenticity of
the sighting. To this time, no firm evidence has surfaced to cast a doubt on this truly
amazing discovery." Internet Virtual Bigfoot Conference Digest,
