An animal cannot simultaneously be so incredibly smart that nobody can reliably find it and also so fantastically stupid that so many people manage to allegedly capture substandard photos and/or video of them. You can't have the argument both ways.
Why not? Think of a super smart snow lepard. If they had human intellegence would we see them at all? Perhaps, perhaps not.

Most of the pictures out there are Known fakes. Most of the videos too. Most of the encounters are probably fakes too. Just as the Unicorn was probably derived from the Rhinoceros, but did not actually exist in Europe, yet it was reported seen all over Europe for centurys.

Why do sasquatches make no impact on their environment?  There is no irrefutable evidence of their feeding, breeding, dying, habitaton, or migration.  All other living creatures leave behind evidence that they are doing these things.

Its not stupidity that is at play here, at least as I see it.  Its the power of the human mind to respond to suggestive situations and interpret sensory information based on our hopes, fear, biases - etc...
I actually totally agee. I think this is the same phenomena that we see associated with aliens, ghosts, faeries, chupacabras and even angels. People see something briefly and fill in the missing data with what they want to be there.

I'm just not convinced this is the Exclusive reason people report seeing bigfoot.

Hi Diechecker,

Actually in the article, the crptozoologist, Loren Coleman was concluding that sasquatch like any other omnivore might be feeding on caribou, like many other predators in that area.  With the harsh winters in Canada and the northern USA, it's pretty safe to assume that if sasquatch is real, the only way it could survive would to be an opportunistic omnivore.  Just like bears, it's feasible to think that they eat plant and animal matter when it's available. There is plenty of deer, elk, caribou and other animals in the boreal forested areas of North America.

Good Post Bionic Bigfoot. And welcome to these forums!

( I do think it is funny you took the name Bionic Bigfoot and use the Six Million Dollar Man version of Bigfoot for your avatar. As that particular bigfoot was an Android, not a cyborg (bionic), and... that you are saying old BF is a missing link.) (You do see the slight irony, right?

Again.... Welcome

Thank you by the way and yes, the Bionic Bigfoot was allegedly an android.  Life is full of ironies and strange happenstances. ;)

That's why you should always wear small bells on your shoes, so the bigfoot knows you're in the area and you don't sneak up and scare them.  You can tell there are bigfoot in your area by their scat...it's it one with small bells in it. LOL

What could possibly go wrong?

Do you think bigfoot uses tools to catch the caribou?   It is usually reported that it is a big lumbering animal.

Its an interesting article, as usual more questions than answers...

The article mentions photos uploaded to a Facebook page. Is there a link for this or have I missed it?

Nunavik is in the extreme North of Quebec, Canada.

I don't personally believe that sasquatch are all that solitary creatures, I believe, like many, that they live and work in small groups and families.  I also believe, like many others that they are well aware of others of their kind and in various ways.  That they are cognitive of their species and knowledge and experiences is passed down from generation to generation and can span great distances.

That sounds an awful lot like CULTURE.

The problem is that culture leaves behind evidence.

Of which there is none.

And about this "missing link" theory, can you elaborate on that? The link between what?

If memory serves the bionic bigfoot was found by aliens, nearly dead and then they rebuilt him much like Steve Austin, so not an android but a cyborg.

Well, going by my theory on what Sasquatches are (back on post 15 of this thread)... what evidence would we have not found?

Primitive stone tools. Check. Remains of fires. Check. Bones. Check. Sightings. Check. I spend a lot of time in the woods out here in British Columbia, a lot of it off trail prospecting and hiking. Almost every year I come across at least one falling apart 'bush' shelter that has been abandoned for some time. I've also found the old remains of a fire and mattress of boughs under an overhanging ledge, yet no signs of human "modern" garbage. etc. (I've also found plenty of camp remains from idiots who have left behind all sorts of garbage, etc) Heck, a friend I know found humans bones in the back country. The police were never able to identify the bones and/or link them to a missing hiker or murder victim (though i doubt anyone would hide a body a four day hike into the back country). All that being said, if my theory on Sasquatches are correct, the only way to actually verify it (sadly) would be to kill one or find one that had died within twenty-four to forty-eight hours (or before predators reached it).
