The evidence is there from Finding Bigfoot...so do you?
The evidence is there from Finding Bigfoot...so do you?
It seems plausible to me because it would just be a rare, large North American ape that hides out in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, if it is there at all, so it's not much of a stretch that it could be the case. It's not like it's some super-powered being or whatnot. So, sure, I think there could be what one might call a bigfoot. If you mean one solitary, 'special creature', no, but perhaps a very limited population of said large, rare ape, I can buy that.
I was listening to an interview with Les Stroud (a.k.a Survivorman of the same-titled show on Discovery channel) talk about this a while back, and he pointed out that that region is far bigger and secluded than people who haven't been out in it (or flown over it) realize, and he went on to explain the reasons why it could be very difficult to find physical evidence. Furthermore, during one of his times out isolated in the wilderness (I want to say somewhere in Alaska), he had an episode (not of the show, I don't think, but just out there for his own sake or some other reason) where one night he awoke to the sound of what he specifically described as what would come from a large, ape-like creature as well. Really scared him, apparently.
Wouldn't shock me to eventually find these things out there.
Dunno if you've seen the finding bigfoot show Hicks, but they basically claim that Bigfoot exist in all 50 states.
If bigfoot was hiding in the ocean I would believe. On land it's tougher to buy.
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
No, I don't think that's a thing.
The Ghost of Bigfoot? Most certainly.
There was a Mountain Lion that moved into my parent's "neighborhood." (I say "neighborhood" beause they live sort of in the country. A mile out from a small town, one neighbor across the road, 2-3within a 1/2mil, 5-6 within a mile, 10-15 within two miles.) It's fairly wooded, a lot of fields with sort of large woods here and there. The surrounding farmers knew about it, some had seen it first hand, DNR actually confirmed it by tracks. Not a whole lot of people knew about it, and certainly not many in the town.
Animals conceal themselves easily. I don't think it's too far fetched to think that there's an animal speices living relatively close to civilization without people knowing.
I think there's some basis in fact. How there can be nearly identical stories stretching across thousands and thousands of miles, some remote locations passed down verbally (like the Yeti) makes you really wonder.
Probably more likely that there at once was a "Bigfoot" but not any longer, and we're just hanging on to folklore.
In the olden days when people were really spread out, you can explain Bigfoot as just a variation in human development pretty easily. Especially when we were tribal. Big human gets ostracized from his group. Lives on his own. That's an easy explanation.
Now it is just a story people like to hold onto IMO.
I just think it's hilarious that there is "evidence" of these things somehow being real.
If there was actually legitimate evidence of this, it'd be huge news. Not some garbage on a sparsely followed show on Animal Planet.
No. Where are the fossils / skeletal remains? Are they immortal? We have identified mammals that went extinct millions of years ago, and we just missed all the skeltons of bigfoot somehow? Bunch of nonsense. And the supposed "DNA evidence" recently hyped has not been published or released for any real scientists to review.

I don't know I just know that if they were as humanoid, as smart, and as large as the truthers claim, we would have found them years ago and probably killed them.
You all know that humans aren't the only creatures on Earth that bury their dead right? Gorillas bury their dead, elephants bury their dead. Many animals that live in packs do this. So its not hard to think that a Sasquatch would have the same sort of rituals. You are unlike to walk across the remains of a rare animal in the forest. Just as you are unlikely to walk across the remains of a Tiger in the jungle, because Tigers are extremely rare!
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
I'm pretty sure we've found remains of all USA-dwelling large primates who have lived here in the last 50 years, many times over.
8 feet tall & 400 lbs should be findable, dontcha think?

I feel like there aren't any land based critters that we don't know about. Or at least ones that are seen with the naked eye. All the crazy **** is miles under the ocean like that god forsaken eel shark that haunts my dreams.
We are talking about an 8 foot tall, 500+ pound man beast.
Yeah you don't see that many Tigers, but we still know there are tigers.
Yes, these sighting stretch over almost every continent. While modern man has adapted quicker and more rapidly does not mean that another species of man/ape couldn't have adapted to us seeing our destructive ways and general fear of bigger predators. Stay out of sight in the deep wilderness where most men never venture. Some believe there could possibly be underground caverns that go far and wide over the northern hemisphere of the earth. Many men don't go exploring to that extent these days. Either way they don't want to be seen and can probably smell a yankee from a mile away so that'd make it easier to stay hidden.
I'm a Beast
I believe "Bigfoot" exists. I am completely on the same page as Hicks, though. I think it is an unknown species of Ape from the northwest. Nothing more.
