Bigfoot Might Be Real

Primate Expert Jane Goodall Says Bigfoot Might Be Real

Legendary primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall isn’t ruling out the existence of one of Earth’s most popular cryptids: the Sasquatch.
In an interview with KUOW radio, Goodall, who is famous for her work with wild chimpanzees, said that she is open to the possibility of Bigfoot’s existence.

Goodall said that one of the main reasons for her open mind is that she’s heard stories about Bigfoot sightings from those who have absolutely no reason to lie.
On a visit to Ecuador, for example, Goodall asked a group of local hunters about the mysterious creature.

“All I said was, ‘Ask if he’s seen a monkey without a tail.’ I didn’t say anything more than that … four of those hunters said, ‘Oh yes, we’ve seen a monkey without a tail. It’s about six foot tall and it walks upright.’”
As for what exactly that creature could be, again, Goodall is open to the possibilities.

“It’s bizarre that we’ve never found any remains,” Goodall said. “Maybe it’s a spiritual creature. The closest I come when I think about ‘what could it be’ is like the remnant of Neanderthals.”
“I think to have an element of mystery in life is very, very important,” she said.

3. I used to believe it was impossible for Bigfoot to be real

Given all the development and destruction of nature we humans have undertaken. Then I lived in Humboldt County, CA for five years, and saw just how massive the forests up there really are.

A creature that was smart, cunning, primarily nocturnal (as Bigfoot is said to be), that buries it's dead, and that is well aware of just how destructive modern humans are could very easily hide in there if it wanted to.

And if we are to believe Native Americans, who to this day claim they existed side by side with Bigfoot for thousands of years, then Bigfoot is well aware of what we did to them and would most likely steer clear of us as much as it could.

Is Bigfoot real? I don't know. But I'll just say that it is not impossible.

5. Do they live underground and only come out at night, or is Google Earth in on the cover up? nt

6. COLORADO: HUNTER CLAIMS HE WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED BY A SASQUATCH!

Darrel Whitaker, from Glenwood Springs in Colorado, claims a sasquatch attacked him and attempted to rape him while he was walking in the woods

The 57-year old man was walking to his hunting cabin on Sunday, to see if it had suffered any damage during the winter.

All of a sudden, a large “gorilla-like” creature dropped from a tree in front of him punched him in the face.

“It was at least 8-foot tall and it’s punches hurt like hell! I was knocked right out at the first blow!“

7. "a joint investigation has been launched" - smokin'

"Darrel Whitaker is convinced that the creature who attacked him was a sasquatch,
but the GSPD investigators say it’s more probable that the attacker is simply a particularly large and hairy man."
