to the BFRO Database
Over the past several weeks the BFRO has been receiving an unusually high number of reports. Many of these reports we suspect are credible, but we haven't had an opportunity to check them all out yet. As usual, most of these newly submitted reports are for older incidents, with only a fraction representing very recent incidents.
The heavy flow of information we've been receiving, combined with the summer vacation/holiday schedules of our investigators, has created some delays in posting, or even responding to most of these reports.
If you have submitted a report over the past several of weeks and you are checking the New Additions page to see when it gets posted to the database, take note of the delays. Do not be discouraged or assume that your legitimate report has been disregarded. It may take a while, but every authentic sighting report will eventually get posted into the BFRO database.
Over the next few weeks much of our programming attention will be directed toward making the database dynamic and searchable. We are also developing an interactive system to help our investigators and researchers follow up on reports more easily. Once this is in place the bottlenecks to posting and responding to reports will be minimized. Please be patient while this is development is in progress.
Important note to witnesses and new site
The BFRO web site was the first site on the Internet to create a national and international sightings database (even among other phenomena categories such as ghosts, UFOs, etc.). It is still the only credible source of bigfoot/sasquatch reports from across the continent and around the world. Fortunately, the people who have been following this subject for a long time know which site was the original, credible bigfoot research organization web site, and which web sites (with deliberately similar names) are merely attempting to capitalize on the popularity of this unique site, and this well respected scientific/investigative organization.
If you are new to bigfoot information on the Internet, don't be confused by any cartoonish, tabloid-esque web sites that attempt to impersonate this one.
