As per not finding a carcass in the woods. I don't know of anyone that has ever found a dead bear carcass and we all know that they are around.

There have been many sightings in Ontario. Mostly around Thunder Bay but also as far south as Lindsey.

Don't forget that about 100 years ago there was a legend about a man creature walking the jungles of Africa. We now know them as gorrillas.

I've found several dead bear carcasses... I have some photos too. (gruesome... I know, but I couldn't help myself.)

its true it was only 100+/- years ago there was a rumour of apes/gorillas in africa.

and 400 years ago the earth was flat......

I trust you're referring to religion and faith. Not quite the same caliber as The Loch Ness Monster. If not, I'm not sure what your personal hierarchy is for this sort of thing, but for me we're talking about: sasquach, ogopogo, nessie, UFOs, ghosts, mermaids, el chupacabra and my personal favorite The Lafontaine Werewolves.

Well, we have them in zoos. I'm still waiting for the Yeti exibit from China. I guess I'll have to settle for Blue Man Group.

Post your dead bear carcas pictures! No hunting, honest walking through the woods one day tripped over a bear carcas pictures.

Aparantly the UFOs have been 'taking' the Sasquach before anyone can get a decent picture or shot at either of them.

150 years more like it. Even then we're talking about people who were not that far from writing "Here Be Monsters" on their maps. Yes, each society of Man defines themselves as the pinnacle of achievement. Still, I rest easy in the knowledge that we are aware of every land mammal in existance that is at least 6 feet tall.

My true story:

Back in '82 I, as a young sergeant, was stationed at Ft. Lewis, Washington with an infantry company. The army LOVES the night, so most of our field training was done during that time. On one particular mission, things got a bit wierd.

After placing my teams into position, I took up the far left spot on the squirmish line and we started to advance. After we took only a few steps, the most blood curdling scream I had ever heard (before or since) came from a very large depression on our left. It was high pitched and slightly warbling, and gave us all the heebee jeebees. I gathered everyone together, calmed them all down, and got on with the task at hand.

After the evaluator called an end to hostilities we all got together, friends and foes, and all anyone could talk about was that scream. A small grass fire was burning a hundreds yards away from a wayward flare, and I had to send half a dozen guys to stamp it out because they would not go out into the woods with a lesser force. They were really scared and, to be honest, I was a bit freaked myself. The evaluating officer attempted to offer up reasonable explanations, but it fell on deaf ears.

I went against orders and took the road up to the bivouac site, and halfway there heard heavy footsteps closing in behind. One poor sap hollars at the top of his lungs "Who the f - - - is it?". Turns out it was the officer who was supposed to take the road back the other way, past the depression, but opted instead for an alternate route. I never heard a word from him about us being on the road.

Needless to say, once word got out we were the butt of many a joke.

Advance a couple years, I'm in college and watching one of those Bigfoot, Loch Ness monster specials. Being interviewed is an American Indian sheriff's deputy from an area very close to the Fort (I forget exactly where). He says that one day, while on patrol, he hears this gawf awful scream and decides to key his microphone since all radio traffic is recorded at the station. When he had his grandfather listen to the scream, the elder said that it was bigfoot, although he had used the name from his native language.

Know what? It was the same exact scream we had all heard in the woods that night. Actually gave me goosebumps.

All that said, I do NOT believe in bigfoot, sasquatch, or the abominable snowman. I really don't know what we heard that night, but am sure it was probably some animal's final scream, or another reasonable explanation. At the time it happened, however, in the middle of the night, it really set me on edge.

You two guys who just mentioned an occuarce should really post your information on the BFRO web site as it may help out with future research. There is a report form online and you will remain anonomous. With all the evidence such as DNA from hair and scat samples and you still dont beleive it?

If there really were these creatures, I find it VERY hard to understand why no one has ever found a body or skeleton, in all the history of loggers, miners, hunters, natives, and other folks tramping all over the north woods. On the other hand, it would explain:

the foul odors in the night that my canoe partner SWEARS wasn't him :roll:

where the last candy bar went since neither of us ate it :P

the reason I feel like someone beat me with a baseball bat after sleeping in a tent a few nights on the ground. Can't be cuz I'm getting older, bigfoot worked me over in my sleep

who stepped on my fishing rod and broke it in the night, since neither of the kids knows anything about it...


DEPENDS ON HOW YOU LOOK AT IT. MAYBE THEY HAVE AND HAVENT REPORTED IT. SUPPOSE THERE ARE ONLY 300 IN THE ENTIRE WORLD? WELL THERE ARE 5000 GRIZZLEYS IN NORTH AMERICA AND IVE NEVER FOUND A SKELETON. THINK ABOUT THE NUMBER RATIO AND STATITICS OF FINDING ONE. THERE ARE CLOSE TO 150,000 SANDHILL CRANES IN NORTH AMERICA AND IVER NEVER FOUND A SKELETON EITHER. OR...WELL THERE ARE 6 BILLION HUMANS AND IVE ONLY FOUND 8 SKELETONS SO FAR. THERE HAVE BEEN NEARLY 50 SMALL PLANES CRASH IN THE PACIFIC NW SINCE THE EARLY 60S THAT HAVE NEVER EVER BEEN FOUND. DENCE REMOTE UNFORGIVING COUNTH WITH HIGH WET HUMITDITY THAT WOULD CAUSE A TWO BY FOUR TO ROT IN 3 WEEKS. HELL MAYBE THEY BURY THEIR DEAD. WHO KNOWS

I personally doubt that Bigfoot exists. Assuming it does though, I don't find the lack of a skeleton or DNA surprising. It may have rituals like burying it's dead. It may be purposely doing all it can to avoid being discovered. Remember the Japanese soldiers who stayed hidden for decades on a pacific island after the war ended?

I may be totally out to lunch here, but didn't Roger Patterson, producer of that famous film of the Sasquatchy running off through the woods admit on his death bed that it was all a hoax? I was thinking he died in the last year or so. Plus didn't photo enhancement show the zipper and changes in the fur between panels in the monkey suit???

I heard a scream one night when I was a kid in Maine woods that raised the hair on my neck, but Pa said it was a bobcat... :o

Patterson film hoax.........

http://www.xzone-radio.com/sasquatch1.htm

My question has always been ( and maybe this was answered somewhere recently).......

Why did they make the Bigfoot a female? Men ( I think) would just naturally make the suit a male....... why the breasts???

I was sad to hear that it was a hoax..I guess I really wanted it to be true......
