Bigfoot, also known as “Sasquatch” has been a part of Native American legend and lore since the times before white settlers ever set foot in the New World. The world-famous cryptid is known for having the appearance of a tall half-man, half-ape creature with massive feet and a foul smell. What makes this creature so mysterious is that bigfoot is known for being able to seemingly disappear without a trace after ducking behind trees, as well as the fact that one of these creatures has never been captured and viewed in captivity – despite the hundreds of efforts to find one and catch one alive.
Most of the legends told by Native Americans have faded away into the past, but the tale of bigfoot seems to be as relevant as ever before. For those who study cryptozoology, the fact of the matter is that it only makes sense. After all, hunters, hikers, farmers, and even policemen swear that they have experience bigfoot sightings as recently as in the past couple of months.
Many skeptics who believe that cryptozoology is totally bunk will tell you that bigfoot sightings are either hoaxes, hallucinations, or just cases where the identity of what people are seeing is mistaken. However, there are plenty of reasons for people to believe that there actually may be some sort of strange ape-man out there in the woods. Here are some of the more valid reasons why many scientists admit that there may be some truth to the tale of bigfoot…
Considering these three points, it’s somewhat hard to toss out all the claims, and even harder to explain away some of the evidence that has been used to substantiate claims. Sure, there have been a plethora of hoaxes that could make people more skeptical, but is it really fair to those who do believe they have seen bigfoot to call them liars without actually looking at their evidence? We don’t think so.
