I think that this could be the origin of many BigFoot sightings.

"The apes, which stand five to six feet tall and have feet nearly 14 inches long, were first documented last year by primatologist Shelly Williams in a forest in the northern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo."

"Because of their size and elusiveness, the apes have no predators not even poachers hunt them, Williams said. With no fear of lions, leopards or hyenas, the large animals hoot at the moon as it rises and sets, which is extremely unusual for apes, she said.
"The people are very afraid of them. They call them the 'lion killers' because they are huge creatures," Williams said. "The folklore is they could kill lions."

Here is the rest of the article:

What do you think?

So the bigfoot is world wide. Why doesn't somebody set a trap for these guys?

i expect bigfoot was made by some experiment by humans. what is the fascination with playing god?

They have bodies similar to those of gorillas, but generally the facial characteristics of a chimpanzee. Williams said the animals sleep on the ground at night like gorillas, but eat a fruit-rich diet like chimpanzees.

Definitely a contender for bigfoot...

1. 14 inch long footprints
2. Chimpanzee face (more similar to human)
3. Sleep on the ground (bigfoot ground nests have been found)

Similar ape species may still exist in the US, Himalyas, etc. as it seems it's isolation that is to blame for these as well....definitely something to keep an eye on here...

Maybe it is part of the bigfoot legend.
