A Reader Asks: Is There a Baby on Bigfoot Patty from the Patterson-Gimlin Footage?

One of our readers is asking for an opinion on a detail he believes could be a baby Bigfoot clinging to the back of the alleged Bigfoot from the Patterson-Gimlin footage.

William Biodrowski told Cryptozoology News he was watching the footage over and over until he “realized there was a little ape on Patty’s back”.

“These photos are still frames 370, 379 and 382 of the film and seem to indicate this object might be a small ape-like child,” he said. “In still frame 370 we’re catching Patty in the process of turning her head abruptly forward just after looking back, these frames seem to be in the clearest and most stable part of the entire film. I think we can see the child’s right arm in all three still frames with varying other detail in each. In frame 379 I believe we can see the basic facial features of an ape-like child looking over it’s right shoulder,” he added.

Biodrowski says it is strange that “no one has noticed this after all these years”. He thinks the image is obvious and that he would appreciate a “sane opinion” on the matter.

We initially believe that even though it certainly looks like there could be a small ape on Patty’s back, it could most likely be the optical effect from the sun reflecting on the shiny hair.

We have put together a video explaining his theory hoping that some of our readers will provide interesting opinions.

“I wonder if this might explain Patty’s behavior, why she doesn’t run off, why she looks back so cautiously,” he said. “Maybe I’m not crazy.”

Please feel free to post your comments below the video, either on our website or on the YouTube comments section.

    I believe it is just an optical illusion. I love the PGF, and I have watched it many times. To me, you would be able to see the baby in the other scenes as Patty walks away. Also, Patty moves to smoothly for her to be having someone climbing to her. If I was walking with someone on my back, I wouldn’t be able to move as easily as I do normally.

      The beginning frames are way too shaky to really see anything. The film stabilizes during the look back portion but Patty has her head turned obscuring what might be on that shoulder.
      The film suffers from chromatic aberration meaning one still frame might have good focus the next not so good, even a single image might be in focus in in certain areas, out of focus in another area.
      I wouldn’t necessarily trust what we see in a single still frame, but when something shows up in multiple frames maybe we can.

    OMFG. another NUT JOB who claims to see a “baby” bigfoot either in the “background” or “on the moms back” … if I had a dollar for every nut job… LOL do you people honestly think YOU are seeing things the people who were actually there in PERSON AT CLOSE PROXIMITY didn’t see? WHAT A TOTALLY UNREALISTIC JOKE. you guys are enabling the nutties for entertaining their shenanigans…there are NO babies , NO hiding Bigfoot, NONE, just patty! geeze. enough people. You stay on YouTube far too long obsessing that your eyes start to see what you want to see. call it visual projections if you will.

      Both persons that were in close proximity couldn’t even agree on what it looked like. Gimlin needed to be told years later it had breasts. It’s not like they were able to sit there and examine the damn thing. You don’t have to gaggle like a teenager about it. I’m asking a question. What exactly is the dark spot on Patty’s shoulder? There has never been a good explanation for it. I think I’ve brought out a shape to it. I’ve seen all the nonsense your talking about, it aint nothing like this.
