I think people are misinterpreting the reason behind Paulides' books. As has been said, he makes no assumptions and offers no solutions (beyond
occasionally saying what he would have done in terms of an investigation/search).
A lot of reviews or opinions come from people who say "Oh you wrote a Bigfoot book. So, Bigfoot's taking people, huh? You have proof it exists?"
Paulides never once implies Bigfoot is taking anyone. The only time Bigfoot (or possible maybe Bigfoots) are mentioned is if it happens to come up in
the actual account. Mostly he uses the terms used in original articles, lays out the facts he's discovered and says "This person disappeared here at
this time. Here's the circumstances, here's the search and it's results."
My point? It doesn't really matter who or what is taking these people. Bigfoot, mountain lions, gnomes, 'little people' or whatever. What matters
is that there is a criminally negligent attitude towards the disappearances from the higher ups of the Park service which, due to their lack of record
keeping and playing down of cases, puts even more people at risk.
If records were kept we'd be able to see who's going and when. And using that we can determine what's causing it and what can be done to prevent
