Important factors to consider when factoring a minimum breeding population (that were not covered in the above link):
1. lifespan of the creature in question
2. years of breeding capacity
A longer lifespan usually equals a longer period of time when a creature is capable of breeding. This actually makes the population size needed to maintain a species somewhat smaller than in animals with shorter life spans and less time to breed. It especially important in small groups covering large areas where large amounts of time may pass before adults within breeding age can mate with a genetically suitable partner.

In reading the the first link, the writer casually mentions "Wolverines." Aside from the X-men dude, I've never heard of wolverines. Does anyone have any info about them, and are there as many wolverine sightings as say, Bigfoot ones?
How many bigfoots are there?

anxietydisorder, if i were in your position i would have gone looking to and would have been disappointed not to have found atleast a track. I have seen how trackers can pick up on the smallest details, so surely bigfoot would have left some evidence of its presence. Maybe the sighting was something else, did you see any other tracks around?

I've never seen any strange steamers that I couldn't identify. Nobody saw anything unusual that day.
