Thanks to the keen eye of Adam Bird we can now say that the photos released yesterday by this blog were a hoax. I would like to thank Adam for bringing a quick end to this. Also, thanks to Matt Knapp for quickly posting the story about the hoax on his blog.
I must say, my interview with Norm Glasser was what put me over the edge on this one leaning toward possibly real. I have learned a valuable lesson. I believe the entire Bigfoot community and the Paranormal community at large can also learn from this. Witness testimony, no matter how convincing, can be false.
When Investigating this story I followed many leads, checked background and, of course, interviewed the witness. Most everything I found appeared to point to real more than fake. Were there red flags? Yes, there were but when I looked into those they were explained to me in a manner that was rather convincing. I suppose I put to much weight into witness testimony rather than my own gut feeling.
The Sugar Flats Road Creature this is the subject of Norm Glasser's photos
I must also note, I approached the witness, he did not approach me. That, his testimony and his apparent story telling abilities made me re consider my skepticism on these photos.
Those that have heard the interview will tell you that this guy can sure spin a yarn.
