Bigfoot: Fact or Fiction?
From the time man could draw on a cave wall, appearances of a large, half-human half-ape creature have been recorded all over the world (especially the United States and Asia). These sightings were documented by “people from all age groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels” (Brown). Based on the aforementioned evidence, one must conclude that the creature that has come to be known as “Bigfoot” actually does exist.
Many accounts of Bigfoot behavior have been recorded for the past 50 years. According to Matt Moneymaker, Bigfoot behavior can be divided into 4 categories: Vocalization and Communication, Aggressiveness and Displays, Ecology, and Injury Disease and Death. The descriptions of these categories are as follows:
Vocalization and Communication: They (Sasquatches) are capable of a complex collection of sounds, starting with whistling, through moans, howls, hoots, grunts, extremely deep growls, roars, and chilling screams.
Aggressiveness and displays: Their responses to people vary from immediate withdrawal, the most common response, to lengthy inspection if no threat is detected. They seem to react in a more relaxed fashion to women and children and avoid men.
Injury, Disease, and Death: Aside from eventual death after being shot at or getting injured on highways, sasquatches probably die from dental disorders, infections, parasitic infestations and the rigors of exposure to the elements.
Ecology: The Sasquatch is distributed across the North American Continent, from high northern latitudes in Alaska and the Yukon to occasional sightings near river courses and forests in New Mexico and Texas. Their highest concentration appears to lie in Washington, Oregon, and northern California.
Recent proof of Bigfoot has been discovered in Palo Alto, California. Two Georgia men say claim they found the body of a...
