Interesting footage of a thermal blob that didn't disturb a grazing cow in the least. I have observed cattle bolt from the presence of a black bear, so I'm a little skeptical of this as evidence of a sasquatch. The track photos are very indistinct, so I can't see what it is that was measured at 16.5", though the reported track size and step length is almost identical to the (undocumented) trackway that I found 30+ years ago.
Is this located near enough to you to check out the tracks in person?

Hi Brad, this is all under discussion at the BFF. (not that I endorse any visit to that drivel)
The cow and silhouette are very far apart, on the range of 100'.
Since we don't know the psychology of how cows perceive Sasquatch, and whether they would perceive one at that range at all, maybe it's still on the table for consideration. 16.5" is totally in the range for Sas, maybe even the median, so I couldn't discount that yet either.
IMHO this is equal to or greater than the video produced by Mike Greene, albeit shaky.

I have to wonder if there is an ulterior motive in pushing things as being Sasquatch related when recreation images are offered to show size comparisons when they obviously are not done on the same line of sight or distance from the camera to the subjects location. I can understand that scaling may not be everyone's strong point, but certainly everyone involved can't be oblivious to the need to get these things as close as possible for accuracies sake.
I thought the writers of South Park made it quite clear how useless improper scaling can be when they did a spoof of the ineptness of the Finding Bigfoot crew's techniques.

Even when the crew of Finding Bigfoot was on location WITH Mike Green and used Bobo behind the stump, they didn't get it right or have the same calibrations as the original.
I agree the photos don't appear to show the same tree trunks and branches for comparison.
The same Flir should have the same image size and same FOV, so unless someone cropped the recreation photo I can't see why entire tree portions are gone. Since they are getting the photos FROM the video, it's likely they are just introducing this mismatch not realizing the need for exact scale and comparison for journalistic integrity.
Last night a buddy and I went out a ways from town to play with my Flir and both our NV scopes. I guarantee you if I go back there and take another pic\video with the Flir and him standing by a tree, the 2 photos will be identical except that he will be lit up in the photo\video.
If a rock is thrown in the forest and no one is there to see it, does Sasquatch really exist?
