Assuming that Bigfoot does exist, what sort of things would such a creature eat ? Would it be a herbivore, or would it hunt down animals to feed on ? One witness of the creature claimed he'd seen several bigfeet scrounging in a quarry for small rodents. Does this confirm that Bigfoot is actually a carniverous ape ?

This talk about a 'carniverous ape' causes me to ask if all apes(or monkeys) are only plant eaters?  I remember watching a documentary once, they showed chimps attacking an animal and eating it!  I couldn't believe it, but they are supposed to be related to us, right? ???
They also showed them getting DRUNK! on some over-ripened fruit!!tongue.gif

                                                  For what it's worth, Bigfoot has been seen carying deer, goats, pigs, and a dog.  We might assume these were for food I suppose..

Bigfoot has also been seen catching and consuming fish, as well as digging for and eating the groundhogs SaRuMaN was mentioning above.

Bigfoot doesn't have to be carnivorous, though.  Omnivors will eat flesh when they can get it.

I just read that there has never been a temperate-climate ape besides man for precisely the reason that most apes eat vegitables, and in the temperate forests these disappear for several months a year.  Chimps don't *have* to eat flesh, yet they do.  But to survive, Bigfoot would have to eat some meat.

                                                  i hope bigfoot don't eat humans.  maybe that is why we dont have proof of their existance  ph34r.gif                                                  

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                  Sounds like a weak theory schadeux.  Sharks eat humans but we know they exist.

If bigfoot was an offshoot of Gigantopithecus, he probably eats mostly plants with the occasional bit of meat - most likely carrion and insects.  

No primate is completly carnivorious, but some are completly herbivorus.  I cannot stand by those words being spelled completly correctly, but I hope you get the idea.

I've seen that video and it's nothing more than a man in a rather poor ape costume running around a field after somebodies pet cat.

I think it was meant as a joke, it wasn't even seen as genuine footage.
