if this story is true [ which i doubt very much - btw ] , then it is another exaple of what i would term " big foot goes ape " < pun > a temporary
psychosis - which allows the handawving away of bizarre atypical behaviour totally inconsistant with the " bigfoot ledgent " ie timid , elusive etc
- but , and this is the rub - these atypical big foot actions are always claimed to be an abberation - a one off - why do they never escalate
in other animals - aggressive behavioiur which brings an individual into hostile encounters with humans , always escalates - untill the animal is shot
why does bigfoot never escalate ? [ to take this case as a poster child - if the bigfoot concerned will bazenly steal from a truck today - what will
he do next week ? - why would an animal prepared to take a dear from a truck simply return to timidity ???? ]
basically "bigfoot " shows a marked lack of consistency in behaviour paterns , yes i know that agiven population can have personality traits , and a
group will have the " shy one " , " the agrssive one " , " the curious one " etc
but in studies of any normal animal - the inviduvuals that exhibit a given personality type , stick to that type in most situations - usually with
behaviour either increasing or decreasing with age .
look at any long term study into primates , big cats etc - thier personality types are identifable , predicatable and tracable - why does bigfoot
psychology present differently in every encounter .
being a cynic - i contend that the " big foot " psychology is recast every time to fit the specifics of a claimed encounter .
just how much variation and psychological pathology can credibly exist in a given [ small ] population - which despite the extreeme ranges of
behaviour paterns , always
manages to totally disapear after each incident
big foot proponents cannot have it both ways ,
a remote possibility is that a desiese [ akin to rabies or cannine dispemper ] or a neurological condition triggers atypical behaviour in indivituals
- but if that is the case why does the " affected " individual not continue a cycle of the atypical behaviour and degeneration ??
instead we are expected to believe that the " normally timid " animal preforms one " act of wanton madness " - and gets it out of thier system ,
then reverts to a totally polar behaviour
a last point worthy of mention is the posibility that " bigfoot " undergoes a condition akin to an bull elephants
but again why is this behaviour single incident specific - elephant musth can last weeks / months
the same with a dears rutting season - a stag can be bloody vicious and violent towards anything
that gets in its way - but when it runs over
a hill it does not suddenly rediscover its timidity and react totally differently in the next encounter - its behaviour is consistant - untill rutt
why does bigfoot not follow any predicatable animal or human phsycholocal trails or behaviour patterns that are consistent
to a given set of
