Bigfoot Sightings: Monster In The Mist
By Martin Richard Sleigh
Throughout history there have been countless bigfoot sightings, eye-witness accounts of an ape-like creature with human characteristics lurking in remote mountain ranges and forests. Although there is no smoking gun which can conclusively prove or disprove the existence of Bigfoot outright, there’s plenty of evidence to support either claim. This article attempts to separate the myth from the reality and determine once and for all whether Bigfoot was, or still is, a living mammal or whether the existence of such a creature is nothing more than a case of mistaken identity, a series of elaborate hoaxes or the figment of overactive human imaginations.
Different names are given to this mythical creature for different regions of the world as follows: Bigfoot (North America), Sasquatch (Canada), Yeti or Abominable Snowman (India, Tibet and Nepal), Almasty (Russia), Yowie (Australia), Mapinguari (Brazil), Maricoxi (South America).
The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organisation is the authority on the frequency and locality of credible Bigfoot sightings. Their statistics show that the United States has far more Bigfoot sightings than any other continent, in particular, the Pacific Northwest states of Washington, California and Oregon are the hot spots. Washington leads the way with 593 sightings on record to date, according to the BFRO. (link)
