The Freeman Footage


Paul Freeman

Paul Freeman (August 10, 1943 – April 2, 2003) was an American Bigfoot hunter who discovered alleged Bigfoot tracks showing dermal ridges. They became known as the Mill Hill Tracks. The plaster casts Freeman subsequently made were convincing enough to be considered critical pieces of evidence by anthropologists Grover Krantz and Jeff Meldrum (Idaho State University), who both put considerable time and resources into studying them.

On June 10, 1982, Freeman reportedly sighted a Bigfoot near Walla Walla, Washington which he described as being nearly 8 ft (2.4 m) tall and covered in reddish-brown body hair. In 1994 Freeman captured a purported Bigfoot on video near the Blue Mountains region. The footage is considered to be authentic by many Bigfoot investigators and can be viewed in the documentary Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science. It was also spoofed many times by Kokanee beer ads.

Some researchers, notably René Dahinden, believed Freeman may have been nothing more than a publicity-seeker. In any case, Freeman once said he spent approximately $50,000 into searching for the creature, sometimes three days a week at a time, and made only $2,000 once for a television commercial. The low point for Freeman came in October 1987 when during a bigfoot segment by Good morning America he admitted that prior to the discovery of the Mill Hill tracks he had ben involved in the faking of Bigfoot tracks.

In 1994, in the Blue Mountains, Eastern Washington State, Freeman had been noticing Tracks of a Bigfoot in the area. This time however he had his camera ready and filmed what he claimed is a genuine Sasquatch.

The footage appeared in the documentary ‘Sasquatch - Legend meet Science’ and was analysed by Dr. Esteban Sarmiento, a functional anatomist at the American Museum of Natural history. Watching the Video footage he commented on the size of the creature and noted that the frequency of movement is very slow and and in addition to the slow head bob, this also indicates a large creature. However he concluded that it is difficult to prove if the creature is real or a man in a suit.
