[Ars] Bigfoot genome paper “conclusively proves” that Sasquatch is real - Page 9

As an avid outdoorsman, I've spent most of my life in the forests of North America, primarily in the Pacific Northwest, (Northern CA, All of OR, most of WA, and parts of NV, ID, and MT).

I can tell you right now I have seen (multiple times) at least two apex predators "competing" for food; although I prefer the term survival, but to each their own.

just over two years ago I was part of management project in the Blue Mountains in Oregon, in a specific area (roughly 15 square miles) there was 10 Cougars within that area alone, (not including Bears, Coyotes, and Wolves). Normally Cougars have a "estimated" radius of roughly 75 sq miles for 1 cougar. personally I think that is much smaller, but that is just my own personal opinion. that year we killed 6 Cougars, all male, and all fully grown.

this was done because ranchers started to see a spike in calf attacks, to my understanding a team of biologist went into the general area assessed the situation, and than organized the removal of the Cougars.

More recently in Oregon, in the general area of Enterprise there have been a number of cow / calf attacks by Wolves, recently a team killed I believe 4 wolves, however they were not the Alpha male. which is currently causing much controversy between biologist and ranchers.

I've seen Bears and Coyotes fight for a carcass before, I've seen Bears fight for a general area or a sow bear. I could continue but my point is just, apex predators may not always be in general area of each other, but if the food goes into another apex predators area the other one will most certainly follow the food.

As for the Bigfoot phenomenon, I have never seen one, but I want to think they could exist even today, most places they are reported most certainly can sustain a creature such as Bigfoot. however I am a realist, I think the theory of them is valid but the lack of physical proof is not there.

I think if they truly exist the only way the scientific community will call Bigfoot a species is if someone kills one, and shows the world.

there are "those" videos / pictures out there, but are either distorted, fake, old, or can't be categorized, as to say science can't rule out a man in a monkey suit.

The flip side is much scientific research has been conducted on the Patterson film, (the one that we've all seen) the general scientific consensus is they can't disprove it, in some form or another. - at least that is the last time I heard anything about it.

Not saying I believe in Bigfoot, but I do find the phenomenon interesting.


I Yeah sorry I meant species, should have written that.
If there's an ample supply of food you might find two different apex predatory species/animals in the same area but it will only last as long as the food supply.

Wake me up when we not only can film them clearly, have a dead body of one, but also have them in captivity alive.

I'll suspend judgement until this evidence is confirmed to be actual evidence that makes it certain (or at least very likely) that this species exists. Because then the actual animal will be found and captured for study within, I'll go out on a limb, and say a month (if even that long).

Because it's a Bigfoot, which is a mix between a caveman and a bear.
We know cavemen existed, and bears exist. So finding a mix between the two would not be that interesting.

Believing in Bigfoot is like believing that you have a distant Uncle that was three times removed.
In the end... who really cares if it exists.

If we can find out that it is highly likely that it exists and is actually roaming around as we speak, then yes, pretty much everyone would care. In fact, we'd be glued to the internet, TV and news to witness the discovery occur in real-time.

But until we have evidence suggesting its existence, you're right. It doesn't matter one bit. Kind of like with the Loch Ness monster, aliens, etc.
