I have been into the paranormal since I was a kid. I have enjoyed all kinds of topics such as the Loch Ness Monster and UFOs. However one of my favorites of all time has got to be the big guy “bigfoot”. Bigfoot is always been one of those hot topics which people completely do not believe in or are completely devoted to finding it. Not only is the topic hot blooded but so are the different character types within the Sasquatch community. The community has it all, from true believers to the individual's who are in it to make a fast buck. There are even a number of infamous individuals who are complete hoaxers and proud of it. The topic of Bigfoot is hot at the moment and everyone seems to have his or her thoughts on the subject. This blog is my take on recent Bigfoot sightings reports and alleged evidence found. Whether Bigfoot/Sasquatch is real or not really doesn’t make a difference, it’s still quite a story to ponder. From the indigenous Indians to modern times Bigfoot is the shining star of the Cryptozoology world. Is bigfoot real, you decide!

Bigfoots Footprints

One thing I always found very perplexing about Bigfoot’s footprints is how they always seem to find generally speaking only a couple tracks. Yes I know the been a couple of cases where they found tracks traveling in a very long distance however that’s a rarity, nine out of 10 times it’s just a couple of tracks that some Bigfoot researcher claims is from Bigfoot. Personally I find this very interesting because considering Bigfoot supposed height and weight that should be a plethora of footprints found. Animal life of all kinds’ sizes and weight often leave multiple tracks which are found all the time and documented in the forest.

Contrary to this Bigfoot investigators often find just a couple tracks if they’re lucky, generally speaking most investigators find one or two tracks and then proceed to cast them. I do realize the forest grounds can differ from area to area quite vastly. Many Bigfoot research will say quite simply the ground is too hard for many footprints to be discovered. However using the same logic often times alleged Bigfoot footprints are found in soft ground such as mud and even then one, two or three footprints are found; why is that?

A skeptic will say a hoaxer simply faked three Bigfoot tracks and decided to go on his way while laughing about the whole thing. Personally speaking an animal which is 8 to 10 feet tall and between 600 to 800 pounds they should be footprints everywhere. And not only should there be plenty of footprints but more often than not they should also lead to somewhere. For example bears are often tracked by the footprints and various other animals of the forest as well. This is why hunters can hunt their prey and eventually find where they hiding or dwelling with other animals of the same species. Now I understand most Bigfoot believers will tell me they’re quite intelligent animals and I can understand that but even the most intelligent people in the world make mistakes eventually.

I’m not a believer or disbeliever of Sasquatch; it is the topic of interest for me. I simply want to know the truth and have my questions answered in a logical and scientific manner especially if you’re trying to convince the world that Bigfoot is real. Bigfoot may in fact be real however before it’s proven to be real we need much more concrete evidence and questions to be answered with facts and not conjecture.

Todd Standing Moving On

In what is considered somewhat breaking news in the Bigfoot community Todd standing has announced he is leaving Bigfoot research. For anybody not familiar with Todd standing, he is a Bigfoot investigator and has claimed to have had numerous Bigfoot encounters over the years. Todd has released numerous pictures and high-definition videos of Bigfoot from various locations. There have been several high quality crystal-clear videos of actual Bigfoot’s according to Todd however the majority of people in the Bigfoot community believe it’s all a hoax.

Even though a lot of his pictures and videos of Sasquatch are very good quality something about the subject’s seemed very artificial. Many other Bigfoot researchers believe the Bigfoot’s depicted are not real and are either mechanical puppets and/or people in various disguises and makeup. Additionally various Bigfoot pictures seem to have been Photoshoped in some instances. To his credit Todd standing has always said his videos and pictures portray genuine Bigfoots.

He claims there has been no photo manipulation whatsoever with his photos and no one running around in Bigfoot suits/costumes in his videos. He says all his video footage was recorded over time in the woods by him in secret remote areas inhabited by Bigfoot which is found over the years. He also claims his mission is to prove Bigfoot is real and needs government protection as a new species.

Bigfoot

As a quick summary of what Bigfoot is supposed to be for people who are not too familiar with it, it’s basically a very large bipedal, tall gorilla/ hominid-like creature. It’s typically said to be between six and 8 feet tall however there’s been plenty reports of 10 feet and even 12 feet tall. They have been estimated to weigh between 6 and 8 hundred pounds at the very least depending on the height and width. They are usually very muscular as well with wide shoulders and very long arms. The arms are proportionately much longer than human beings.

In the majority of cases of people who had Bigfoot encounters a very strong repulsive smell is associated with them. In fact one type of Bigfoot in the Florida swap lands is actually known as the stink ape or skunk ape. According to eyewitness accounts the smell is like a combination of wet dog, garbage, sulfur and in some cases rotting flesh. Either way the smell is not pleasant at all and often described as overwhelming to the point of sickening people

They are usually reported to be covered from head to toe in black or brownish red fur. The fur is usually reported to be not too long in length throughout the body however much shorter within the facial area. The shorter hair in the facial area makes sense because longhair would interfere with its eye sight. According to Bigfoot researchers they are able to communicate with each other through wood knocks, clapping stones together and howling to each other.

They are said to be very quick especially for the size, and masters of disguise. They are said to be able to disappear literally in the blink of an eye and also highly intelligent creatures as well. Without question they would have to be highly intelligent in order to have avoided human contact all these years so far.
 

The Concept Of Bigfoot

To the majority of people the concept of Bigfoot is very hard to believe. The very notion of a 6 to 8 foot flesh and blood guerrilla like beast weighing between 5 and 8 hundred pounds roaming the Woodlands undetected is laughable to most. Besides that if Bigfoot is truly a flesh and blood animal and not some type of supernatural being as most Bigfoot investigators claim then there must be more than one in existence. Given this fact it causes a big problem because this means you need to have a population of Bigfoot living and breeding over all these years.

So basically what that means is there is out there a hidden/undiscovered population of giant gorilla like beasts living among us. Considering that most Bigfoot researchers claim they can be up to 10 feet, even 12 feet and at least 800 pounds on the heavier side, even a small population size throughout the world makes it very hard to believe we still haven’t caught one yet if they truly existed. So between the size which they are reported to be and the number needed within a population to sustain Bigfoot over the years simply compounds the problem of believability to the majority of people.

To me personally this is one of the most valid reasons why it’s hard to believe in something such as a Bigfoot. Nevertheless to believers or “knowers” as some of them call themselves there are always reasons and explanations to why Bigfoot can and in fact exists. Just for the record I am not saying I don’t believe in Bigfoot however there are many reasons not to be certain of its existence. There is only one true fact at the moment in regards with Bigfoot until we have a live specimen or dead the mystery will continue. Hopefully if Bigfoot does in fact exist and is eventually caught it’s captured alive and in good health for scientific and ethical reasons.
