I think the possibility of Bigfoot being real is very high. There are so many creatures in this world that we still don't know about because we have
either killed them before discovering them or they are smart enough to stay far, far away from humans.
Have any of you ever heard of the Tasmanian Tiger? Well, it very much existed, but was killed to extinction - supposedly. Now it is almost like an
urban myth in Australia, built up to huge proportions. In 1986 Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) declared extinct by international standards. Yet there
are sightings of it all the time, and some of them very, very good. They have probably learned to avoid humans, at all cost.
Just because you don't see something yourself, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
How many of you have come directly face-to-face with a mountain lion while on a hike? The odds are, you haven't - they avoid humans. And most
people don't venture off the beaten path. Even if they do, it is still usually close to a place where people venture. Moutain Lions and other types
of "elusive" animals will usually only come onto a human beaten path at night. If they come into contact with a human, they find the quickest exit.
Take for instance the Giant Squid, we haven't caught video of one yet, let alone a live one (we supposedly caught a baby one, maybe about a foot
long, don't feel like looking it up at this moment though : ). Yet, we know they exist. We have eyewitnesses and stories, and even dead ones (not
too large though).
Only those who actively seek "elusive" animals have the possibility of finding them. The same goes for Bigfoot and I think if Bigfoot is as big as
we think it is (from the footage shown, and eyewitnesses) and somewhat resembles a very harry human, then it at least has to have an intelligence
smarter than that of most primates - probably smarter. I think it would be smart enough to avoid humans like the plague.
And like I said, Only those who actively seek "elusive" animals have the possibility of finding them. Which means that most people aren't
searching for these things. If everyone and their mother was searching for these things with cameras and all, we would have all the evidence in the
world, but we don't. People may carry their cameras and camcorders on the beaten path and off, but if they come across (unless they are searching) a
Bear, a Cougar, a BIGFOOT, they aren't going to sit their and start snapping pictures and video. Their first instinct is to get to safety. Thats
the human instinct, and it is unavoidable.
You must be searching for them and the fact is... most people aren't. There are no funds to search for Bigfoot, nor are there any to search for the
supposedly extinct Tasmanian Tiger. There are funds to search for a live Giant Squid, but have you seen any video or pictures yet? It may be harder
to find things in the ocean, but it is also quite hard to find things on land, especially when there is nobody getting paid to actively search for
them - people with time and resources usually get what they are looking for. Think about it.
