Big Foot Is Back Too

 

Bigfoot is  a large ape-like creature, ranging between 6–10 feet (1.8–3.0 m) tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds (230 kg), and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair.  Witnesses have described large eyes, a hairy uni-brow , and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded  like a Gorilla. Bigfoot stinks too, eywitniss reports claim an unbearable stench about the beast.The enormous footprints for which it is named have been as large as 24 inches (61 cm) long and 8 inches (20 cm) wide. 

 

The enormous footprints for which it is named have been as large as 24 inches (61 cm) long and 8 inches (20 cm) wide.   While most casts have five toes—like all known apes—some casts of alleged Bigfoot tracks have had numbers ranging from two to six

                                                                 

 

 

 

Originaly seen in the  Pacific Northwest.   Stories of Large Wild Human Like Creatures have appeared on every Continant except Antarctica.

Members of the Lummi  tell tales about Ts'emekwes, the local version of Bigfoot. The stories are similar to each other in terms of the general descriptions of Ts'emekwes, but details about the creature's diet and activities differed between the stories of different families.

Some regional versions contained more nefarious creatures. The stiyaha or kwi-kwiyai were a nocturnal race that children were told not to say the names of lest the monsters hear and come to carry off a person—sometimes to be killed, In 1847, Paul Kane reported stories by the native people about skoocooms: a race of cannibalistic wild men living on the peak of Mount St. Helens Volcano. The skoocooms appear to have been regarded as supernatural, rather than natural.

These accounts were reported  by J. W. Burns in a series of Canadian newspaper articles in the 1920s. Each language had its own name for the local versionMany names meant something along the lines of "wild man" or "hairy man" although other names described common actions it was said to perform (e.g. eating  clams)  Burns  coined the term Sasquatch,

In 1951, Eric Shipton had photographed what he described as a Yeti footprint.  This photograph generated considerable attention and the story of the Yeti entered into popular consciousness. The notoriety of ape-men grew over the decade, culminating in 1958 when large footprints were found in  Del Norte County . California  by bulldozer operator Gerald Crew. Sets of large tracks appeared multiple times around a road-construction site in Bluff Creek. After not being taken seriously about what he was seeing, Crew brought in his friend, Bob Titmus, to cast the prints in plaster. The story was published in the  Humbolt Times  along with a photo of Crew holding one of the casts. Locals had been calling the unseen track-maker "Big Foot" since the late summer, which Genzoli shortened to "Bigfoot" in his article   BIGFOOT  t gained international attention when the story was picked up by the  Associated Press

The year 1958 was a watershed not just for the Bigfoot story itself but also for the culture that surrounds it. The first Bigfoot hunters began following the discovery of footprints at Bluff Creek. Within a year, Tom Slick, who had funded searches for Yeti in the Himalayas earlier in the decade, organized searches for Bigfoot in the area around Bluff Creek


 Bigfoot  sightings have spread throughout North America. In addition to the Pacific Northwest, theGreat Lakes Region  and the Southeastern  have had many reports of Bigfoot sightings


Cryptozoologist  John Wilson Green , have postulated that Bigfoot is a worldwide sensation  most notable sightings include:

  • 1924: Fred Beck claimed that he and four other miners were attacked one night in July 1924, by several "apemen" throwing rocks at their cabin in an area later called  Ape Canyon  Beck claimed the miners shot and possibly killed at least one of the creatures, precipitating an attack on their cabin, during which the creatures bombarded the cabin with rocks and tried to break-in. The incident was widely reported at the time.Beck wrote a book about the event in 1967, in which he argued that the alleged creatures were mystical beings from another dimension, claiming that he had experienced psychic premonitions and visions his entire life of which the apemen were only one component.
  • 1941: Jeannie Chapman and her children claimed to have escaped their home when a large Sasquatch, allegedly 7.5 feet (2.3 m) tall, approached their residence in Ruby Creek . British Columbia .
  • 1958: Bulldozer operator Jerry Crew took to a newspaper office a cast of one of the enormous footprints he and other workers had been seeing at an isolated work site at Bluff Creek, California. The crew was overseen by Wilbur L. Wallace, having over 15,000 feet (4,600 m) of film showing Bigfoot.
  • 1967: Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin reported that on October 20 they had captured a purported Sasquatch on film at Bluff Creek, California.

Various types of creatures have been suggested to explain both the sightings and what type of creature Bigfoot would be if it existed. The scientific community typically attributes sightings to either hoaxes or misidentification of known animals and their tracks. While cryptozoologists generally explain Bigfoot as an unknown ape, some believers in Bigfoot attribute the phenomenon to UFOs      Some sightings attributed Bigfoot to animals that are not apes such as the  giant ground sloth  


Purported Pennsylvania Bigfoot, 2007

THhe reported size of Bigfoot approximates that of abear  standing on its hind legs, and bears have a high prevalence in regions said to be inhabited by Bigfoot; as such, they are likely candidates to explain some sightings. A recent example comes from a series of pictures taken in 2007, claimed by The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization to show a juvenile Bigfoot,. The broadcast organization  MSNBC  feel the hunter’s photo revived the lively Bigfoot debate.  While Jeffery Meldrum said the limb proportions of the suspected juvenile in question were not bear-like, stating he felt they were "more like a human."A tale presented inTheodore Roosevelt's   1900 book Hunting the Grisly and Other Sketches, describing an encounter between two hunters and a violent bear, is sometimes presented by Bigfoot proponents as historical evidence of the creature's existence.

Gigantopithecus

Bigfoot proponentsbelieve that Bigfoot could be a relict population of Gigantopithecus. Bourne contends that as most Gigantopithecus fossils are found in China, and as many species of animals migrated across the Bering Land Bridge it is not unreasonable to assume that Gigantopithecus might have as well

Bernard G. Campbellin wrote: "That Gigantopithecus is in fact extinct has been questioned by those who believe it survives as the Yeti of the Himalayas and the Sasquatch of the north-west American coast. But the evidence for these creatures is not convincing."

Jane Goodall  in a 2002 interview, expressed her personal hope of the existence of Bigfoot, but allowed that there is no concrete evidence for the creature.Anthropologist Carlton Coon, whose theories on the evolution of race in humans have been largely discredited, also expressed support for Bigfoot's existence in a posthumously published essay
