    Yea 'cause you know in the 1000s of years the native americans were in that area and the 100s of years that the Europeans in that area Bigfoot managed to avoid detection.



    But now he's been found.

    Native Americans called it Sasquatch, I believe.

    For Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster etc. to exist, there has to be a population of such creatures, not just one. And how come no skeletal remains of such creatures have ever been found? The answer is pretty simple, surely.

    Duh. God did love them so much they were taken into heaven before the resurrection.

    Of course, the same was said about the gorilla for a few centuries too...



    I grew up in the Pacific NW, and spent a good amount of time hiking in the Cascades. If someone or some semi-sentient thing doesn't want to be found, they or it won't be. I think it's hard for people who haven't spent time in the area to fathom exactly how remote it really is... and that isn't even nearly as isolated as just a couple hundred miles north in British Columbia.



    Can't say I've ever seen a Sasquatch, or footprints, but I have heard a call one night that left me wondering WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!? up around the Lake Minotaur area, one ridge over from where I was camped. Wasn't anything I was familiar with, it sounded for all the world like a gibbon or orangutang howling. No one I talked to had any idea what it was either. It wasn't a wolf, bear, marmot, elk, or any other animal I knew the sound of. Years later, I ran across a supposed Sasquatch call online, and... yup, it matched.



    Still have no clue what it was that night, but don't be so quick to confuse absence of evidence with evidence of absence.



    These yahoos in Georgia are just idiots, however.

    That was the bigfoot hunters across the lake using it as a mating call to try to attract real sasquatchs...



    Pacific NW I can maybe believe. Georgia?

    Cool post, kickaha. All I have to say is that with rapid advances in sensor net technology, if sasquatch exists it will be found by the end of this century.

    Let's hope they weren't a victim of date rape.

    Scientist have been setting cameras with shutter triggers for years. Here's one of the latest finds.





    Camera spots rare clouded leopard









    High tech not needed.

    The trick is being able to deploy tens of thousands of cameras (if not more) that are always on and have enough AI to refrain from reporting the non interesting things they capture. That is still some time away.

    I've thought the same thing, which is why I'm not ready to be a true believer. I'm just not a true disbeliever, either.

    Yeah, well... of course the Skunk Ape is a myth of the SE about as long lived (ie, centuries) as the Sasquatch in the NW. Supposed to inhabit swamps, another hard-to-find-things-in terrain. Ah well.
