This is simply the impression I get after reading the initial post, the reply's, the OPs previous posting and many other threads like this one.
You seem to be fishing for the 'skunk ape' answer.
I have seen a couple of threads like this over time. A description is given, reactions are produced and those reactions are dismessed outright if they
aren't what the OP wants them to be.
I am willing to bet that if I had not said anything and someone came by suggesting that it sounded an awful lot like a skunk ape, that the OP would
willingly and without question accept the answer...

Other suggestions are hushed aside; waiting for that which is already thought.
The only other post from the OP (at the time of this reply), is as follows:

skunk ape hoaxes show skunk ape with long hair which is a characteristic of a sasquathch or a bigfoot wihich live in cold climates where long hair is
necessary for survival outdoors.
The sections I put in bold are important (I felt).
I am not saying that the OP is attempting to commit a hoax, far from it. I believe that he/she truly believes that they have seen this animal (perhaps
However, it would seem that the OP is, like others, searching for something which confirms his take on the experience: it was a skunk ape.
We all want confirmation in our beliefs. I just think we shouldn't let them become our blinders.
edit: used 'bigfoot' instead of 'skunk ape'.
