Justified & Ancient

Sadly, many of the intriguing Bigfoot reports from the UK are probably just that: a man in a ghillie suit seen in low-light or the dark from a passing car or wherever. If you follow the reports, you will see that those who investigate such sightings never factor in this possibility, and that includes prolific paranormal author Nick Redfern who wrote an entire book on the British Bigfoot (Wildman, CFZ Press) and not once asked if his witnesses were being misled by the brief sighting of someone in a ghillie suit. Likewise, Lee Brickley and Deborah Hatswell.It's almost as if they don't want to be able to tell the difference between a Bigfoot and a man in a ghillie suit.
The use of ghillie suits for hunting, bird watching, nature photography and by the military and police is more widespread that most people realise.
