Look, Bigfoot is supposedly an animal, right? If bigfoot is real and is an animal, then in order for it to be vetted scientifically and take its rightful place alongside all the other animals, it is going to have to be studied and categorized just like EVERY OTHER ANIMAL that has ever been added to the roster. What is truly ridiculous is that people think that Bigfoot should somehow be immune to this, and that skeptics are just being jerks when we have a hard time believing in an animal that purportedly breaks all the rules.
Whether you like science or not, science is the process by which animals are vetted and verified- and until science can get its hands on one for study, the thing is a myth. I would love nothing more that for these animals to be proven. But Proven its going to have to be before I elect to believe in its existence.
