Well if that were true then the Bigfoot/Ape/Bear should be dead as well, right?

How can anyone say that something appears more "human-like" than "sasquatch-like"?
Could you please post a link that describes, in detail, what exactly is "sasquatch-like"?
Do we have any earthly idea what a sasquatch is?
Please see this link on confirmation bias.
Bigfoot is described in reports as a large hairy ape-like creature, ranging between 6–10 feet (2–3 m) tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds (230 kg), and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair. Alleged witnesses have described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla. Bigfoot is commonly reported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who claim to have encountered it. The enormous footprints for which it is named have been as large as 24 inches (60 cm) long and 8 inches (20 cm) wide. While most casts have five toes—like all known apes—some casts of alleged Bigfoot tracks have had numbers ranging from two to six.
Some have also contained claw marks, making it likely that a portion came from known animals such as bears, which have five toes and claws. Proponents have also claimed that Bigfoot is omnivorous and mainly nocturnal. Wiki
I am assuming (that) they are basing this statement around the descriptions of Sasquatch from myth, legends, and alleged eye witness accounts.

Here it is on BluRay:
That all fine and good, yet you seem intent on attacking the alleged bias in the claims that this is a human, as opposed to pointing out the bias in the claims that it is the mythological Bigfoot which isn't scientifically accepted...
(perhaps you are exhibiting your own bias?), but it is fine for you to refute the claims that this is a human being.
It's a human, I can see it is a human, but feel free to refute the obvious.

Most anyone who does real study of the phenomenon knows this creature exists. We finally even have some more brave mainstream scientists willing to posit it could exist and some have gone further. The best example is acclaimed scientist Jeff Meldrum of Idaho. You also have the state of New York's chief primatologist on board. Even Jane Goodall believes the animal exists.
I have long ago learned the EVERY bigfoot denier actually has very little knowledge of the facts. Primate hair samples with no known specie DNA match exists. Scat exists. Hundreds of footprints with dorsal ridgs that cannot be faked and do not match the pattern of known primates. Eyewitness accounts in the thousands, including biologists, forest rangers, cops and hundreds of hunters who have spent their lives in the woods.

My first thoughts were a black bear but if you watch it enough times its starts to look more human like. Great find OP im sure many ATSers will be scratching their heads and arguing about this for some time to come.
