Raise your hand if you believe...

In bigfoot.

I read an article some days ago and they reported on a sighting in Canada. I am not sure if it was a repeat of the below article or not, but it was a recent coverage. Got me to thinking again, do you believe in bigfoot.

I for one choose to believe, even if for no other reason than it's fun.

I do think it's possible. There's a tremendous amount of forest in the US and Canada. A shy, reclusive primate could certainly exist. Plenty of food sources too. It's a rather romantic notion, such a large primate living in the US and Canada, undiscovered by science.

I had a conversation about this with a coworker not long ago. It was determined that Bigfoot is a wussy. He never hurts anything. On the other side, the Chupacabra has scored numerous kills.

I had a few questionable drunk hook up's in college. My roomates once poured plaster of paris in one of the girls foot prints, and tried to convince me she had to be a Big Foot, but I know better.

I used to have a book documenting sitings. I don't know if it was true or not.

What I do tend to believe is that it's less and less likely that there are any bigfoot type animals left if there ever were any.

No, the guy who faked some foot prints and sighting confessed to just that, he couldnt confess to making up bigfoot as the stories of Sasquatch have been around for hundreds of years That being what it is I do beleive that there was/is some unknown primate running around in those parts

I tend to believe there is something undiscovered out there. reports from areas close to me don't impress me (we don't have enough woods to hide a big dog) same with sighting by people not woods wise, but when some one who is familar with woods and wild animals. loggers, ranchers, or people that hike or hunt a lot say they see something I tend to think there may be something out there, 20 years ago I was of the mind that If I saw one I would kill it and end all doubt, but now I think I would enjoy seeing one of god creatures get a picture if possible and go on about my way. you mellow with age

I saw Smallfoot in the woods once, but no one was interested.

I won't even mention that time I fled from Bunyons and the evil Higharches.

If the thing existed, I think we would have found a dead one, a habitat, some fecal matter, something. But all we have is unproven sightings and x136s beard, which is rumored to be made from Bigfoot DNA.

Which proves definitively that Bigfoot lives at the bottom of the ocean.
