“Swamp Loggers” Stumble Upon Bigfoot Nest?

SwampLoggers

According to the Bigfoot research team, Discover Bigfoot, on one of the latest episodes of the reality television show Swamp Loggers, the crew stumbles upon a Bigfoot nest out in the forests of North Carolina. Some of the crew members from the show photographed their find. The photos show matted grass and large mounds of scat surrounding the nest. The Discover Bigfoot team makes an argument about the similarities of gorilla nests and these so-called Bigfoot nests.

There is also talk about possible Bigfoot creatures being accidentally taped during the Swamp Loggers episode ‘Rainy Days’. On the 15 minute and 27 second mark, the Discover Bigfoot/ Facebook Finding Bigfoot team entertains the idea that possible Bigfoot creatures are lurking in the background of the scene:

Could the Swamp Loggers team accidentally have stumbled upon a Bigfoot nest and scat?

I doubt it. And let me tell you why…

What the Swamp Loggers photographs show is similar in appearance to a gorilla’s nest and fecal matter, but that in no way should be interpreted as hominids being responsible for this. Bears tend to leave the same ground indentations and matted grass while “nesting”:

Also, bear scat can be pretty massive as well:

I believe the evidence presented by the team is not compelling enough to claim these findings to be anything but a bear’s natural habitat and droppings. What do you guys think?

I'm a writer, a runner, and a hell of a coffee drinker residing in Los Angeles. I'm currently working on a book about Doris Bither and her terrifying account of a haunting in Culver City, California. The case was dubbed "The Entity" and it stands to be one of the most controversial cases ever to be studied by parapsychologists.

    Red, don’t you think DonBondo when you see my name anyway? As an editor I have to be a little more careful in what I say. You know how that goes. Although I couldn’t resist the dipstick comment at the end there. I haven’t even flirted with you in quite some time. You haven’t cut your hair, have you?

    I think the subject all comes back to evidence. I stand by my first post as it would have been very easy to gather hair and feces.

    If only we had Bigfoot snagged in a berry vine.

    @TaZZ – Does Bigfoot do this?

    To me the sticks and twigs look like natural fall. The bear scat? Well, we all know Black Bears like to sit and contemplate by these stick circles. The poopin’ part just comes naturally. Though the contemplating part is most likely just thinking about the good bowel movement it had the day before.

    @Scott McMan – Thanks.

    Does Bigfoot poop in the woods
    just have to find a Bigfoot and see
    running from tree to tree
    till ya find a black pile
    filled with nuts and seeds

    Ohhh…Bigfoot it must be

    OK! sing along with me now :]

    Hey gang, I’m the one who caught this split second movement in the background of this show, watched it numerous times, took video with my phone and posted on youtube. Who knows what it is in the background if anything but to me it looked like something big and not human…hence the reason I took the time to record it…Ironically these “nests” are being found in the same area, not sure what to think of that but curious to see an outcome if any.

    the loggers are always beung pushed to get 100 loads a week it’s a wonder they’d see anything. However, I think overall Bobby treats them well enough at the end of the day so to speak. Blobby

    Hello bigfoot hunters,
    here is a higher resolution video of the swamp loggers on camera bigfoots (bigfeet?). It is also zoomed and steadied a bit.

    So this Bigfoot can mimic a person that is part of the film crew.

  • mbarrett

    i was on a bigfoot forum and someone actually explained the guy’s sleeveless t-shirt by saying sometimes a sasquatch will wear stolen human clothing. People are amazing.
