Gable Film Mystery, Part 3

If you haven’t read the first two installments, you can do so here and here. I feel it necessary to give the reader a fair warning here: the new evidence recently discovered and presented below is of a shocking and graphic nature. Viewer discretion is advised. ******************************************************************* This post appeared on YouTube on Friday, June 17, 2009. According to the poster, who goes by QuinlanOUR12, this is the story behind the new footage (annotations in brackets are mine):

“I was at my little brother’s house Friday June 10th and my sister-in-law was watching Fox News. (She’s madly in lust with that Sean Hannity guy). A short segment came on about “the Beast of Bray Road” [click to watch -Steve]. Hannity then played a clip from a film named…”The Gable Film”.   Sirens went off in my head.   Our only uncle was a film nut in college, back in the seventies. He was always making home movies and beer commercials. He was even hired, (not for pay), to help the Michigan Department of Natural Resources investigate and document a bear attack, just north of Bellaire. (Our Grandmother worked in the Antrim County Courthouse,…. she had a hand in getting him the gig). The victim’s name was Aaron GABLE.   …..GABLE!!!   My mother tells us that after filming the attack scene, our Uncle John was so distraught that he packed up his stuff and moved to Florida, two weeks later!. Mom says his behavior was becoming very psychotic, he couldn’t sleep at night and he kept going on about how “bears have FIVE toes,….. dogs have four”!. Just a week after he left, a DNR officer hand-delivered the film that Uncle John made to my Mother’s house. It’s been in a box in the basement ever since.    Now, I seem to recall that these films usually lasted about five minutes or so, but the film we have is only about a minute long… and the end of it was obviously torn off, not cut clean.  I wonder just how much is missing? We almost threw this film away just a couple of years ago, but I wound up buying a vintage projector on eBay, just to see what was on this film. (Boy, was I suprised). NOW,….. I find that there’s this “Gable” film out there?  I wonder if these two films are related. I’ll see if I can get it in better resolution, other than with Wifey’s camera-phone. (It might be expensive,….. but I’m sure it’ll be worth it).     One thing’s for certain, whatever it was on that clip that they played on Fox News,….. it sure didn’t look like no Bear.” *******************************************************************   Now, without further ado, we present to you the new evidence… “Gable Film Part 2.”
