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