With the amount of information behind this recent hoax and the various images being used, people seem to be getting confused. I will attempt to simplify the situation. Remember, this is not a hoaxer, but a group of hoaxers working together.
The photo below was sent to Bigfoot Evidence, along with several other media outlets.
Once the "buzz" from the above photo dwindled, the following video was sent to Bigfoot Evidence, along with several other media outlets. The video came from the same general area as the photo.
Meanwhile, "Finding Bigfoot" announces they will be in Florida shooting an upcoming episode. Anyone know of any new bigfoot sightings in Florida? Maybe photos and video of a skunk ape?
The Florida division of the BFRO begins to investigate the person(s) responsible for the video. They discover a connection between a few different individuals, mostly centered around a local Florida band and an artist.
The artist did the following piece of artwork.
Notice a resemblance to anything? Maybe a certain previous photo released from the same general area as the Lettuce Lake video, and released to the bigfoot community in the exact same fashion?
By the way, the artist who did the above picture, doesn't just paint or draw. He also likes to make life-like replicas of made-up creatures. Like the two-headed alligator pictured below, also this artist's work
So, with all of that being said, it is currently believed that both the skunk ape photo and the Lettuce Lake skunk ape video are hoaxes and created by the same group of individuals. All of which is explained in the video below.
