Editors Notes > With the publicity on this one sighting out of the Myakka Park in Florida you would think there is dozens of personal encounters in and around Myakka State Park , well you might think so by all the publicity some blogs are focusing on this park right now.
What is going on ? According to the BFRO statistics from the 4 counties that surround Myakka State Park, Sarasota-Hardee-Manatee-and Desoto counties there is just 1 Class A encounter and 5 Class B in the last 50 years. You might think by the attention this one phone camera sighting got that they are pitching much more then just a possible bigfoot encounter here. What’s going on why so much attention to this one sighting ? I have not seen anything like it since the Oklahoma Bigfoot Capture Hoax ! . Does this one long distant video deserve all the attention ? Soon I suspect they’ll be setting up a permanent team with 24 /7 coverage of this group of researchers interviewing themselves daily about what they haven’t found. The bigfoot researchers will soon out number the local deer population with people coming from Maine to California to get in on the publicity hype ! Oh BTW you can hear a plane flying in the 2nd video I guess the Men in Black were watching too…LOL

Bear Footage 03-29-2013
I stopped to take a picture of a huge gobbler to the left, when I clicked video on my camera and got home later to delete it, I saw the bear briefly on the right, he stands then walks away. It looks like he was eating something. It was too blurry to keep, and I wasn’t planning on it, I was actually on my phone at the same time. I wish I was more focused on this! It would of been great up close. Any suggestions on how I can zoom in and clear it up? This was on 03/29/2013 at 6:39pm. At the Bridges on Hwy 72 by the entrance of Myakka State Park.
