Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

I find it exciting when some GhostTheory reader contacts me via email with a subject line that reads “Have you seen this?“. It’s almost always something good. I always expect something extremely interesting story-wise.

Such was the case when Bruce K. contacted me a few days ago. In his email, he asked me if I had ever seen the video analysis of the Marble Mountain Bigfoot footage, and what my opinion was on this piece. Well I’ve never really heard of such footage existing, but with a name like “Marble Mountain” it sounds like a winner, right?

Well I followed Bruce’s instructions on how to find this particular video analysis. An analysis of a video that I’ve never even seen. I figured I would be lost from the get-go. That wasn’t the case. The guys over at Finding Bigfoot and BFRO made sure to do a good job in showing the original footage and comparing that, to their own well annotated analysis. So to say the least, I was surprised at myself for having not heard or read anything about the Marble Mountains bigfoot video.

The original video was shot in July of 2000. A group of Church goers had made a trip to the Marble Mountains and were filming something they had stumbled up while hiking. A very rustic quick-shelter that was built using nearby items. As the group examines and films the shelter, they joke about the possibility of it being a bigfoot shelter. Someone then exclaims to have spotted bigfoot in the faraway distance. On top of a mountain ridge. As the camera zooms in, we see the figure moving quickly across the mountain top and into some trees. Up until that point, they are all joking –or maybe they were serious?– about bigfoot. So there’s no conclusive evidence that what they filmed was a bigfoot. Just a tall silhouette off in the distance. Then BFRO examines the footage.

The BFRO team found the exact location of the original sighting point. The mountain ridge where the silhouette was spotted could be seen through the camera’s zoom. Everything seemed to align perfectly, frame by frame, old footage to new footage. Although 15 months had passed since the sighting, much of the foliage around did not seem to change much. Allowing the team to send one team member out to the exact point in the far away ridge to do comparison shots.

To which I believe was a job well done. The comparison of the tall silhouette witnessed by the group of church members and that of the BFRO member was eerily different. Using natural markers like tree branches and large stones, the team put forth strong results in proving that this was no ordinary tall human. From their tests, the silhouette witnessed had to have been at least 10 feet in height. As it’s shows in the video below:

I think this is a very well analyzed video which has me convinced that whatever this creature was, it was a very tall, tall creature.

Bigfoot? Erroneous debunking? Or just a very tall person? What do you guys think?

  • Hey Buzz,

    Many claim that there are Buddhist Monks in possession of Yeti body parts.

    You know what my point is and we’re not talking about Bear scat.

    “Trackers”? What trackers are you referring to? Sounds like the words of someone who’s never set foot off the berm of the road.

    I’ve spent literally thousands of hours in the forest and mountains. I have never seen a bear carcass and have seen few other animal carcasses in 30+ years of excursions into the bush.

    Yes David, looking forward to reading!

    I have found a total of one bear scat and one mountain lion scat, plus accompanying tracks. They are hard to find, but not hard to mistake.
    Also, most animals keep their living spaces relatively clean. You know, “Don’t sh*t where you eat” type of thing.

    Apparently, many temples that have Yeti body parts venerate them and few will allow testing, but the ones that have, the parts are found to be bear or tiger parts, though I have read of some Hominin-type skulls such as Australopithicus.

    I think it is much more likely that there is a Yeti running around Asia than there is a Bigfoot or Sasquatch in North America simply because of there’s not as much space to hide (granted, we have some intricate cave systems). Not discounting it, but this is my logic. Probably missing a few steps.

    That said, I call fake here. It doesn’t sit right.

    OK, I’m sorry, this video is kind of ridiculous. The jumps in logic they make is amazing. “Oh! A structure, must be a creature that made it! These trees couldn’t possibly be snapped from a strong wind or a fall!” even though there is a firepit right next to the thing that was more than likely built but a camper.

  • David R

    I have found what I am pretty sure is a mountain lion hair ball. 🙂

  • Sean

    So the uber stealthy Bigfoot, virtually unfound by man, is just staggering around on a hillside with no cover around him? Okay. I’m sold.

  • irolands

    Unbelievable. Never seen a human walk down a hill before??? Unbalanced, swaying arms, looking down at the steps he takes, small deliberate steps. I agree with other comment about white (jacket). Of course stops, shows off, throwing arms up. Good cover story church group with disabled kids, camera man too descriptive at “nest”. Old addage about a lie, KEEP IT SIMPLE. Untruths are more than certain when great detail goes into the story.

    But mainly, the walk down the hill very human-like. An animal that lives in that terrain would be sure-footed and not display that lack of balance or caution coming down like that HUMAN did.


  • Henry

    @Jeorg, you think maybe if the person walking down the hill were wearing a wool cap not pulled down tightly?

    There is too much distortion from extreme zoom to truly make any reliable claims about physical structure.

  • TaZZ

    I seen this video a few weeks ago, and I think it’s an actual bigfoot. First of all, it was rugged terrain, with 3 foot drops coming down the side of the mountain, so yes the bigfoot looked a little off balance…a normal person would have to hop/jump down the side of the mountain. If you look at the figure, the arms look extremely long down to the knees, and yes, i can see it’s fingers as it tries to keep balanced. After comparing the film to and man made copy, you can see that the bigfoot figure is very tall compared to the man. If I walked in the woods and found a cave made of twigs and thick broken braches (not cut), i’d get discriptive too, and probably think it’s a bigfoot.

    When I saw the original video I was yelling : “This is a sasquatch !!” I am convinced it is the real deal. IT looked much taller than a human, at least 9 feet tall, the arms were longer too, down to the knees, it looked like an angry sasquatch possibly fidning out someone had discovered its nest. Yes, it looked like it was bouncinga bit going down the hill but the terrain must have been rough there, rocks, etc. Easy to lose your balance even for a sasquatch with huge feet. I thought it was a Squatch. I would have been running after it personally, I would have run all the way up there. 🙂

    Also, Bigfoot put his / her shelter together with red string. Not saying they can’t do that, but its the first I ever heard of them using string.
