I saw a documentary recently (I think it was one the latest Monster Quest
programs) which really prompted me to consider that some scientists
don't want it to be found.
One of the expeditions spread scents and hung glittering CDs into a tree, and their "secret cameras" could be seen from a mile away.
They acted like Bigfoot was some kind of monkey that would come out and play if it saw something shiny, and smelt strange odors, and the scent of
humans trampling through the forest like elephants.
Now Bigfoot obviously has some intelligence, and if the evidence shows anything, it's that they avoid humans!
If you want to catch it on film, one would think disguising human scents with local smells, and sneaking into the location without a twig snapping,
and mounting the tiniest camera would be more appropriate.
They re-examined the Patterson footage, and they believe it is genuine, but they have this scientific belief that it's a just a monkey or unknown
It's probably going to take more decades before they realize it has intelligence, and can spot their shenanigans from miles away, while they waste
