I remember the footprint/ weight ratio video.
OMG! that was like a million years ago. (Smile) Nice to see another "oldster" who's versed in what's already been tried in bigfootery.
The cave-system idea has been around forever it seems like. No doubt some do use them, but what troubles me is that it's too easy an answer. Currently
between the theories that our own Gov't has massive tunnels and underground facilities, Bigfoot lives underground, UFO's have underground bases it's
starting to look like "underground" is a fairly busy place!!!
It's a fair assumption that Bigfoot uses caves, but the entire population? Not likely.
There are just too many reports of them using abandoned isolated homes/outbuildings to ignore.
The "pet theory" some us tossed around 15 years ago was that we're seeing them more because much like us their culture is also facing the issue of the
younger generations going wayward. The "Youngers" much like our youth have found out there is little consequence to doing whatever they want too.
Keeping in mind they watch everything, they've seen everything from Returning Veterans living in the woods to Grow-OP's to Hippies and their communes
to our kids Keg/Drug parties.
Back in the day it was heretical to suggest Bigfoot used buckets, lighters, the odd bit of clothing.
However even back then (1990's) the fact was as humans we're sloppy and leave stuff laying around. We are also watched so it's not improbable some of
our things have been liberated and used. Good Lord! A Hoarder's property is much like the kid's science museum for them!!!
I also don't ascribe to the Bigfoot as cannibal theory, anymore than I would say all humans are. It's aberrant and unusual
behavior for both species.
For those who ascribe to Paulides interpretation of the missing I will counter with Tim (Coonbo)Bakers podcasts. He's done several with first
responder accounts of Bigfoot killing humans and leaving them in folded up/mutilated stuffed back into their own vehicles and their weapons
destroyed. There were also joggers torn limb from limb up in Vancouver a ways back that was blamed on wild dogs despite any evidence proving it was
The Cops up there mustn't of gotten the memo it's better to blame it on bear attacks.
My point being if a Bigfoot wants you dead you get dead on the spot. Not lured away.
I won't argue that people ARE going missing in National Parks and other wilderness area's but I'm doubtful it can ALL be blamed on Biggie. There's
just too much other weirdness going on in addition to the fact people are remarkably ignorant, unprepared for the situations plus regular predators to
be anywhere near comfortable in even thinking Bigfoot is solely responsible. Like the Cave theory it's just too easy an answer.
