Hiking the Redwoods with California's 'Squatchers
Spiegel Online ^ | Nov 23, 2011 | Philip Bethge

Posted on 11/23/2011 10:30:24 AM PST by dragonblustar

Amateur researchers in the United States continue to eagerly search for the mysterious creature known as Bigfoot, staking out California's redwood forests at night in their hunt for the elusive beast. Despite many claimed sightings, the existence of Sasquatch has never been proven. Yet that hasn't stopped the obsessed from pursuing his giant footprints.

And no reported findings of a dead/dying specimen, ever ... would almost make one skeptical.

Maybe they bury them deep in the woods then cover the graves with leaves......

Oh stop it. They practically own the pacific northwest. And you don't find bodies, because they are cannibals.

That's true but there are those Helen Thomas sightings...... Where people see something they just can't explain.

Cannibals?

Question, if you eat a big foot that doesn’t exist are you hungry again in an hour?

Its a bit like Global Warming but makes for a better camp fire story.

Or maybe the chupacabras eat them when they die. Or perhaps the greys pick them up and bury them on the moon.

One can become skeptical due to a lack of Bigfoot bodies until one realizes that their bodies are picked up by their compatriots in flying saucers and whisked away to the planet Bolok for burial.

Maybe they need to camp out at night on the lawn of the White House. Quite a few sightings around there the last 3 years.

I know the Creature From The Black Lagoon resides inside and masks itself as the First Lady.

That's where I'm torn. There are some credible witnesses, like that of UFO sightings, but the real evidence is lacking....

It is almost like an evolutionist, you never see anything evolving - no tails - nothing. I am sure those suckers have to go to the bathroom sometimes, no piles of anything any where. We can find dinosaur droppings but not big foot!

I remember all the hoo-ha about Sasquach, bigfoot, whatever years ago and this story in the news. It's finally on-line via the wikipedia--that's how mundane it's become.
Note the section on "Hoaxes" as well.

True, but only to young'uns who had never heard of it. Then it would be a FABULOUS story to tell, just before bedtime.....ooooo

About 30 years ago, at Urquhart Castle, on the banks of Loch Ness, we saw Nessie...swimming near the surface...took pics...can’t show them...the film, for those slides only, were overexposed non-photos. Apparently Nessie has X-ray vision, and that is why we have never seen any clear photos. / :)

Yeah I was stuck on the same thins. There is a site that people register their stories and they investigate. BFRO.NET

I have read through many of these reports. And frankly people are seeing these creatures, there are too many, too many places, all describing a similar creature. I look at it this way. It is not so much the likelihood there is a creature, the more stronger evidence to me is..... there are not enough people willing to be pranksters and write false reports.

Think about it. Like I know probably 700 people by name and of those I would say maybe 7-8 are people that enjoy a good prank. But out of that group I know no one that would go as far as filing false reports in order to prank people. I would bet your odds are about the same. I love pranks, and I have extremely LOW inhibitions.... (and i dont drink :) and frankly I would not ever write a false report for a prank.

So that means literally 1000’s of people that have reported seeing these things, are either liars, crazy or they have seen them.
Read some of the reports, and see if they are credible. That is my take.

Our neighborhood near Augusta, GA is hosting a new creature who likes to, as the Beatles say, “do it the road”. The scat looks like dog dookie, but breaks down to reveal seed pods that we know are alien. Nothing grows in this area with seeds like this. Nothing fruits for 8 weeks in fall and is fodder for carnivores. Help!
