I know some here will laugh at this notion, but the way i see it just as many people laugh at the prospect of there being a Bigfoot roaming about, so
here goes! I also appreciate that i am from the UK where i believe no Bigfoot have been sighted yet, and no i have'nt seen one anywhere else either
so i guess i'm yet to be convinced on this issue.
Last night i was watching a programme where you could vote on the best moments of David Attenborough's wildlife programme career. One of the most
amazing scenes to me, probably not to some here but it was for me as i'd never seen this before, was when they filmed some chimpanzees walking
upright, wading through some lakes in the jungle. I've seen chimps walking on two feet before, but not as upright and humanlike as this. It was both
moving and creepy at the same time.
Now i know Bigfoot sightings have put the creature at quite a height, 6ft plus in a lot of cases. Is there not a chance that, or should i say more
chance that a chimp or a gorrilla has found itself free somewhere and is living wild, and has at times been seen walking upright on two legs? When
someone observes the creature, maybe theres some overexageration with the height, and as we've seen the footage is always rubbish anyway so if the
footage is less than great, then maybe so was the observers view?
Here is a picture of a gorrilla that was photographed wading through water holding a stick, i have no idea what height these creatures are once they
are stood upright, but i'd reckon they could easily get near human height.
Maybe this does seem a bit farfetched to some, but what would your first thoughts be if you were camping in the forest and this came walking through
the woods and you viewed it from a distance?
Body hair i guess is a factor which may seperate this theory from the usual Bigfoot sightings, Bigfoot is usualy described as somewhat more hairy than
your average chimp, gorrila, monkey, whatever. Is there such a thing as an overly hairy monkey or chimp? I mean compared to normal hair growth? I
remember on a documentary about Hogzilla, they said that if you let a normal pig loose into the wild to live, it would end up a ferrel pig, all hair
and stuff like a boar (think i got that right, please correct me if i'm wrong). Is there any way that something from the ape family, if initially
kept in captivity from birth, then it escapes, is there a possibility hair growth could be affected in the same way?
I don't know how many people in the US have bought chimps or the likes as pets, only to one day find that they are not always the tiny peace loving
things they appear to be? I know many people foolishly buy exotic animals then dump them in the wild when they can't cope. I wonder how many chimps,
gorrillas and the likes have been let loose this way?
I'd love to hear peoples opinions on this, i'm not really putting this out as a reason for bigfoot, more a "could it happen" and if not why not?
It was just so weird last night watching these creatures walking about so humanlike, for someone who loves mysteries like this, it was hard not to
watch it and not think of the Bigfoot stories.
Thanks in advance.
