Tim Fasano and Kevin Kehl spent most of the afternoon yesterday pushing their way through a thick Florida swamp on their way to retrieve a trailcam that was left there last spring.
At the trail head things had dried up considerably since the last time they did a drive-by check last month so they were encourage that they would have no issues retriving the piece of equioment.
These hopes were dashed the closer they got to it's location.
When the camera was placed into position the ground all around was completely dry. However, now the tree that the camera was attached to was it's own island!
Tim braved the swampy waters and made the trip through the muck and mire to free the camera from the tree. The batteries were found to be dead so there was no way of telling how many images the card held.
Later that night Kevin received a phone call from an excited Tim saying that there were over 8,000 images on the card and that it would take close to an hour for them all to download.
At first glance he did not see anything noteworthy but that was gauging it strictly from the thumbnails as they loaded onto his computer.
The intent was to document the trip as they headed out there LIVE as it happened on our "Mobile Streaming News Feed" page but there was an issue with it accepting video remotely.
Not many people know about or have heard about the capture of the "Wild Man of Ocheesee Pond", Florida.
Back in August of 1884, after a series of sightings of a wild man covered with hair and swimming between the islands, a group of residents assembled with horses, guns and boats and set out to capture the creature. It didn't take them long to apprehend their prey and bring it in.
The Native Americans in the area had many stories of a wild creature much taller than a normal person and covered with hair roaming the lake and swamps.
Ocheesee Pond, Florida
The news was released in Columbus Georgia on August 23, 1884
News brought by the steamer Amos Hays from Lower River is to the effect that the wild
man captured in Ocheecee Swamp, near Chattahoochee, and carried to Tallahassee,
did not belong to a Florida asylum, and that all inquiry proved unavailing to identify him.
He had been swimming in Ocheecee Lake, from island to island, and when taken was
entirely destitute of clothing, emaciated, and covered with a phenomenal growth of hair.
He could give no account of himself, and the theory is that he escaped from an asylum of
some other state, and spent his time in the woods, living on berries, &c. It was thought that he was an escape from the Florida State Hospital but it claimed to have had no one fitting this description or anyone who had escaped. No other institute or asylum reported such an escapee. He had a human appearance and was covered in a thick hair. This only added to the mystery of the wild man.
There are no further accounts of what happened to the wild man after his capture. No information is currently available as to where he was taken.
If there are any readers that have any further information about this incident please leave a comment below. Enigmatic Anomalies will continue to investigate this story further.
Enigmatic Anomalies was back out in the field again yesterday
investigating the location of Tim Fasano's Bigfoot video. Tim and Kevin
worked on recreating the shot and tried to determine the height of the
creature. Later that evening Tim made an amazing discovery while
re-examining his footage. He discovered that there were in fact TWO
individuals in the shot. EA is looking forward to the release of the
footage next week.
has just published a video that was shot during a recent excursion with
the E.A.R.S. team and Seekers Paranormal..
They were investigating a possible Florida Bigfoot migratory route through a swampy area of Central Florida.
One year to the date of the E.A.R.S. team finding a long trail of
footprints, Tim was able to capture a Bigfoot attempting to hide from him
in the palmetto bushes.
The clip is quick but upon close inspection
you get the sense that this creature is big, bulky and trying to
evade prying eyes.. It appears to be bipedal and exhibits a ducking motion behind the bushes..
"Finding Bigfoot" host Matt Moneymaker has watched the video and has posted several tweets on it including the following:
Floridian Tim Fasano seems to have gotten some legit BF footage. Persistence pays! From Central Florida (Green Swmp): http://goo.gl/en3FW
Regarding Fasano's footage from Green Swamp (best guess). Yes, there are
bigfoots in that area, and yes, they hide among palmettos like that
Fasano is not a BFRO member but we know he's in the field a lot. His
odds were better for that reason. Also that part of FL is losing swamps
The relevant figure in new FL clip is visible very briefly. Only
uppermost part of body is seen (4:09 - 4:20 >rewinds). It crouches
Enigmatic Anomalies and the entire E.A.R.S. team are proud to be working with Tim Fasano and fully support his "Seminole Project". Tim and Kevin make regular trips setting and retrieving trail-cams deep in the Florida swamps.
Since doing our initial interview with Tim back in January of this year we have found him to be nothing
less than a hard working individual dedicated to just being out in the thick of things bringing you honest videos of what he sees.
Tim and the
E.A.R.S.team will continue to investigate further into this area and try
to retrace Tim's steps through the swamp to see if any further evidence can be found.
