I don't really see a problem with a "bigfoot".
About 15 years ago i was on a hunting trip in North Carolina. I was up in a tree with my little bow freezing half to death and wondering when my
father was gonna decide it was time to go and come get me, when I heard a rustling in some brush off to my left. So I got to looking at this rather
large pile of brush laying right along a creek that was slightly moving. I was expecting to see a deer walk out at any moment when to my surprise a
dark orange creature came bursting out of the brush and into the water at which point it started slapping the water and making all types of noise.
Scared me to no end. My first thought of this hairy biped? Well of course Bigfoot!!!
But it wasn't. I realized this after a few moments and nervously watched an orangutan play in the water until it slipped off a good distance at which
point i ran like made back to the truck. When i told my father, who by the way was quite angry that i left the tree stand early, that i had seen an
orangutan he thought i had went crazy.
A few days later I saw a news report of a wrecked circus truck and of it's escaped orangutan.
When I seen an ape in a place i was not expecting one "BIGFOOT!!!!"
I find it possible that either an undiscovered species of great ape or an introduction of a species of ape not native to the area could well be
considered a Bigfoot, especially if those that see it are unfamiliar with that species of ape. But for an introduced or unknown ape to survive in
small numbers and breed and stick around for a long while seems quite possible to me. And from a later news report i found out that it took wildlife
officials 3 WEEKS to find a fairly tamed orangutan in a block of woods they already knew it was in. Seems a "Bigfoot" could hide for a long time.
