this ` episode ` be they true OR false only reinforces my cynicism
assuming it was all true - a few points :
item one - ` see " bear " shoot "bear " ` really ? it does not state where the incident occurred - but according to a friend stateside - he needs
a permit to shoot ONE bear
even assuming they had bear permits or were in an area where bears are unrestricted
such cavalier shooting at unidentified targets is pure idiocy - and the type of behaviour that gets other wilderness users shot ` by mistake `
item two - how did the ` presumably ` single bear ` magically split into male / female bigfoots ?
was one already dead ? being carried ???
and BTW how many shots were fired ???????????????
item three - " lets bury it " ? and then what totaly ignore the incident for > 30 years
hauling out 1200lb of cryptid whould test the abilities of a 5 man hunting party
but they could have summoned assistance - taken samles or even ` trophies ` - like head / paw / foot etc
item four - when did they realise it was a ` bigfoot ` ?????????
again it does not say - but if they were aware of the bibfoot meme @ the time why didnt they act on the importance of the discovery ?
if they were ignorant of ` bigfoot ` surely they would think grorrilla or other higher primate - how many people could claim to have shot a gorrilla
in the USA ?
item five - why now and why art bell ????????? what does it acheive apart from ?? well what does it acheive ??
are they going to recover the remains - if not - why not ??
sorry folks - it could be true - there is noting in the acount to verify or dismiss it - but i doubt it
as the 5 items i raise make me seriously question the tail
