I have been into the paranormal since I was a kid. I have enjoyed all kinds of topics such as the Loch Ness Monster and UFOs. However one of my favorites of all time has got to be the big guy “bigfoot”. Bigfoot is always been one of those hot topics which people completely do not believe in or are completely devoted to finding it. Not only is the topic hot blooded but so are the different character types within the Sasquatch community. The community has it all, from true believers to the individual's who are in it to make a fast buck. There are even a number of infamous individuals who are complete hoaxers and proud of it. The topic of Bigfoot is hot at the moment and everyone seems to have his or her thoughts on the subject. This blog is my take on recent Bigfoot sightings reports and alleged evidence found. Whether Bigfoot/Sasquatch is real or not really doesn’t make a difference, it’s still quite a story to ponder. From the indigenous Indians to modern times Bigfoot is the shining star of the Cryptozoology world. Is bigfoot real, you decide!

Arizona Department of Transportation Bigfoot Evidence

Arizona Department of Transportation Bigfoot

On Jan 1, 2015 the Arizona Department of Transportation posted this photograph of a street with the following caption: "We might have spotted a family of sasquatches on SR 260 near Heber this afternoon." on their official Facebook page. Now quite honestly I believe for the majority of people when they read the caption and saw the picture pretty much figured out it must’ve been some kind of joke. Nonetheless the picture provoked a tremendous amount of debate about the picture whether it was a genuine or a hoax.

The viral picture of what appeared to be possibly a Bigfoot family in Arizona obviously had the Bigfoot community and conspiracy theory fanatics looking for answers. Conspiracy theories began to propagate after they posted the photo from a highway patrol camera. The Facebook post now has been shared hundreds of times and filled with thousands of comments as well. The Facebook comments ranged from true Bigfoot believers to hard-core skeptics. Many of the true believers were worried about the safety and the health of the alleged Bigfoot family and demanding more pictures to be made available.

Sadly, eventually the truth came out and the Arizona Department of Transportation put an end to all of the speculation by admitting it was just all a big joke. "We always try to have a little fun with our Facebook and Twitter feeds," department spokesman Tim Tait told ABC News. "That way, we don’t just post news about crashes and road conditions, but a little something to engage our audience in different ways. This posting was one of those efforts -- something that caught our attention, and we thought it might make some people chuckle."
