    Question Sasquatch?

    There was a recent post on fears where Monk understandably mentioned that he was a bit spooked by the Big Guy and I wanted to know what people thought about this thing? Real? Not real? Got any stories??

    I live in the very heart of the Bigfoot Country in Southern British Columbia; not far from Sasquatch Provincial Park actually.

    I've never acutally seen one or found any tracks, but very interestingly about 5 years ago I was out in my kayak on Harrison Lake at dusk and I heard that raskal calling out plain as could be. It was very spooky + even though it was too dark to see anything I have no doubt what it was; I've never heard such a sound before (or since).

    I live in Western Washington, near the Cascades. And I just can't say with certainty that it doesn't exist. There's so much land, so much forest, out there...

    There are local legends that pertain to him even as far east as Ohio. Every now and then you'll hear stories of people who saw "something" in the western part of the state.

    Whether he exists or not I dunno, but I can tell you my fear of him is very real. I wouldn't want to run into him on a dark night off the trail.

    Hanging with the Sasquatch; always fascinated me that a human-like primate could be out there. I've seen some tv programs of people trying to prove/disprove sightings, and even though some have been shown to be hoaxes others have not. The terrain is so rugged & remote that anything is possible.

    Don't y'all have Sasquatch Festivals up there? Maybe they can be lured out with some good old foot stomping music and a big bag of slim-jims? we need a dancing sasquatch smiley

    If a wild animal doesn't want to be found you won't see it. Even in the netherlands we have wild bobcats for example, but the chance of actually seeing one is zero to none and we hardly have any forest, much unlike the US.

    Don't be stupid, everyone knows the Loch Ness Monster is the only legendary creature that actually exists.

    That's really the disappointing aspect to many of these sort of stories. So many have been faked it nearly discredits the entire idea. IMO the possibility is quite real (as testament to my emotions on the subject!), it's just mind boggling that so little evidence has been found after all this time. Is it really that hard to find some kinda carcass? Apparently.

    The thing with the loch ness monster is that there are similar creatures reported in lakes in Turkey and South Africa. Could be true, probably not, but it's nice to have these little mysteries.

    Not only does bigfoot exist, he has needs.

    A man who claims that he was molested by Bigfoot as a child was ordered to serve 20 years in prison yesterday for his own molestation-related activities. [...] Morrill told an investigator preparing his pre-sentence report about being sexually assaulted by the legendary Bigfoot, a North American folklore character said to be between 7 and 10 feet tall, and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair. Patton said Morrill really believes the assaulted happened.

    If there really is an undiscovered large primate in the Pacific Northwest, I look forward to seeing hard evidence. Short of irrefutable physical evidence, however ...

    Who knows? I'm not going to say it can't exist, because it really could. But I'm not going to say it does exist.. I don't know.

    People need to stop hunting after that poor creature and let him/her live in peace.

    What I really want to know is what on earth this is.

    Btw, that picture in the OP is taken from a supposed video of the Sasquatch. Funnily enough, it was female, it had floppy breasts, and it sort of walked funny.

    It also had these weird eye slits that suggested the whole thing might have been an elaborate costume.

    Ok you might not be able to find a huge ape in an american woodland but...

    ...this for a second...

    ...there are 'bigfoot' legends all over the world and active 'sightings' too...

    ...so...

    ...if there was such a thing, dont you think that it would have been discovered in at least one of those locations?


    My explanation is simple:

    a) Bigfoot, much like 18 year old virgin girls, doesn't exist. They are a figment of our imagination.

    However there is a really good expanation why our imagination spawns 'bigfoot' and 'goblins' etc...

    Until very recently our ancestors cohabited this planet with a plethora of other hominids and primates. There were apes at least twice the size of a gorilla and hominids half our size. Some of these things were so big that they would scare the living out of our ancestors when they met them in the forest and some of these things were small and agile enough that would perhaps live off trying to steal our supplies and being a nuisance. Hence Bigfoot, Goblins etc etc...

    Consequently I theorise that the fear of such primates is hardcoded into our DNA.

    My hypothesis about those sasquatch, yeti, and other humanoid's caracass...

    Maybe we allready find them, a lot of them, but because they resemblance human too close... they are landed in police forensic department as "unidentifiable corpse", or "murder / accident victim"..... especially when their caracass is allready rotten....

    I remember, there was a story in my country, about an "unidentifiable corpse" that turns out to be dead orang utan (after lot of investigation)

    Default AW: Sasquatch?

    If you really see a Sasquatch, you must have the guts to shoot it down and recover the cadaver. Photos or video footage will never solve the mystery. A new species that's to be described scientifically must be killed to be anatomically investigated, like it or not.

    Now that I think about it the whole Bigfoot thing is complete rubbish. When there are no smaller apes able to live in the area, what should a giant sasquatch live on? Does it eat the trees or what? Or is it a predator, scaring bears and mooses to death?
