Opinion on Sasquatch Bigfoot is, without a doubt, the most recognized mystery. The apelike being has reportedly been sighted thousands of times since the beginning of the 19th century. According to eyewitness testimonies, Bigfoot, also known as Sasqautch, is a gigantic beast that is tall and weighs as much as six hundred pounds. Reports also say that the monster’s form is well built and usually covered in a thick, brownish fur. Many have asked if the creature could possibly be roaming through the wilderness around the world, and from my personal opinion the answer is yes.
The amount of evidence supporting a creature’s existence is astonishing. From footprint casting and fur samples to video evidence and numerous human sightings, Bigfoot’s existence cannot be doubted. There are three pieces of evidence supporting the existence of Bigfoot, the first of which is the thousands of eyewitness accounts on BFRO. The first recorded sighting occurred in 1870 near a small town in California. The town newspaper, the Antioch Ledger, reported that a “gorilla man” or “wild man” had been sighted in the woods near the town.
The paper deemed it unsafe to travel outside unless absolutely necessary because of the beast. Next, in 1901, a lumberjack on Vancouver Island reported seeing a “man beast” washing itself in a river near his base camp. The courageous lumberjack decided there and then to approach the beast and confront him. The strange “monkey man” quickly fled, though, as the man approached the river. Upon examining the tracks left behind, the lumberjack explained how the prints were almost identical to a human being, except for the extremely large size. After the incident, many reports began pouring in from the Vancouver area of Canada.
The residents of the area became well aware of the existence of the creature in the area, and it was they who first coined the term Bigfoot. By 1960, thousands of reports on the existence of Bigfoot flooded in from all over the United States. The sightings usually occurred in the mountains, woodland areas near rivers and streams. Many thought that those who witnessed these things were crazy, but it was at this time that the inevitable happened Bigfoot was captured on film. On October 20, 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin, two Bigfoot researchers, were riding their horses in the dried river bed of Bluff Creek in Northern California.
It was an area with an extraordinary number of sightings, but the two did not believe what they saw. There Bigfoot was, kneeling in the dried creek bed. The creature spooked the men’s horses which forced them to run away in fear. They quickly grabbed their video camera and started filming. The beast slowly stood up, looked around, and then proceeded to stroll off into the woods. The film was soon released to the press and caused quite a commotion around the world. The numerous stories and reports are believed to have been made up and the video footage faked. There is evidence that cannot be ignored, though.
That evidence is the physical remains that have been collected over time. This physical evidence includes footprint castings, and samples of fur and feces, all of which have been found to be something not known to modern science. Bigfoot’s existence can no longer be denied. No longer is it a question of Bigfoot being real, but rather a question of man’s capability in being able to believe the truth. The facts cannot be mistaken. Besides being seen time and time again, video footage has been collected. This alone is enough to make many believe, but for the rest, the physical evidence is unmistakably real.
