No, regardless of species.
We have sufficient technological devices to find Bigfoot if we could get the money up to do it.
Infrared from a helicopter would be a good start.
As would a team of photographers that could be dropped off at potential sighting areas after locating a Bigfoot from an infrared airborne system.
Short story from the early 80's or so.
Just to illustrate a point.
I used to work at the large power station opposite Magic Mountain Park and across I-5 near Newhall, California. (Known as Santa Clarita nowadays.)
We used to monitor police, fire, forestry etc. scanners to get a head start on potential problems to the electric system.
When we started hearing of a chase coming south on I-5 headed for L.A. about 0400 it got pretty interesting.
Three guys had robbed some people and were brandishing shotguns at cars while speeding along the highway up on the ridge near Gorman.
Eventually there were a couple of Kern County (Bakersfield area) Sheriff's cars, a couple of Bakersfield based CHP cars, then about three more
Newhall based CHP cars and an L.A. County Sheriff's car chasing the bad guys.
The parade eventually made it's way down I-5 to where we could see it from the power stations back door.
A whole lot of red and blue lights.
The bad guys turned into Magic Mountain Park and I wondered why.
My co-worker mentioned they were probably from the inner city and figured they'd get lost in the amusement park.
Trouble was, there were no people in the park due to the late hour except for a couple of watchmen.
The bad guys stopped their car near the entrance, got out, fired at the policemen, then two gave up right away and the third got over the cyclone
fence that surrounded the park and disappeared into the park.
I figured he would cross the park, climb over the fence again and disappear up the Santa Clara River (dry at the time) bed and walk away from the
Then we hear the police dispatcher notify the policemen on the ground that a FLIR helicopter was on the way. (Forward Looking Infra Red.)
About 0530 one our company helicopter pilots drove up to the power station gate and we let him in.
He was an ex Vietnam helicopter pilot and knew about the FLIR system and explained it to us.
We had no idea the L.A.P.D. had one and I'd only heard about them being used in Vietnam.
I didn't take long for the FLIR heli to latch on to the guy and then watch him via FLIR move into an area of buildings.
The FLIR operator got fooled a couple of times by A/C units that were still giving off heat on the roof of buildings, but it wasn't too much longer
until they tracked the bad guy to some bushes where he was apprehended.
With the night vision devices we have nowadays, ones where we can tell whether we're looking at car, deer or human, it seems the time is right for a
well coordinated and humane effort to locate a Bigfoot and photograph same.
Capture wouldn't really be required as far as I'm concerned.
Just some good clear photos and videos.
Trouble with all this Bigfoot and UFO stuff is that clear photos are few and far between.
You'd think that with all the camera's out there, we'd have more pictures.
Then again, sometimes you get surprised.
I was quite a way out in the desert last Wednesday, took quite a few photos with a digi-cam during a Jeep trip and when we got close to the paved
highway, i put it away.
Only to see a small herd of wild horses laying around in the minimal shade of a Joshua tree.
We could have went back, but by that time they were up and moving.
They are quite leery of man and his vehicles....
