If you've missed it earlier today, Dr. Melba Ketchum's web master inadvertently released an 18 second clip of the Matilda Bigfoot footage with Dennis Pfohl, the project manager and chief videographer for Erickson. The Erickson Project picked sites in Maple Ridge, Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama where they knew they could get close to the creatures. Dennis has spent the past seven years hunting sasquatch with a camera and baiting them with food for samples of their DNA. He says the reports from those locations were credible and the sasquatch were known to return to the areas, especially to snack on human food.
For those who have not seen the video of Matilda breathing and have not read the peer reviewed study, here's what Ketchum support Linda S. wrote:
The article is fabulous, and the video of Matilda is amazing. I think 30 dollars to purchase it is a small amount for all of the DNA information that is in the article. These journals charge that to help support their sites, and I imagine building this site cost you money. Melba, You have handled this entire event with decorum and dignity proving that you are a true Southern Lady and an Academic Scholar. We are all so very proud of you and happy for you that your hard work and dedication towards proving this species exists and protecting them legally will soon be acknowledged by the entire world. Well Done Melba!
For people who have not seen it, they're begging Ketchum to make the YouTube video public again:
"Call me stupid,but where can I see the video that inludes footage of Matilda?"
"Why is everything so secret, Erickson video, everything, etc? I would think releasing the information and video that Erickson has would fortify your position paper, and your paper his position. By withholding the video and information,,,you and Erickson are subject to speculation. As you know, speculation in the BF community breeds contempt. Not good....."
"Please, Dr. I need pics. My GF won't believe this without some imagery."
