Bigfoot sighted in Canada

Two berry pickers reported an unusual encounter while out in the wilderness in Nunavik, Quebec.

Maggie Cruikshank Qingalik and her friend had been collecting berries when they witnessed what they initially believed to be another person doing the same thing until they realised that the figure was covered in long dark hair. Observing the creature moving along the side of a hill they noted that it would walk upright and then sometimes on all-fours. It was estimated to be in the region of 10 to 15 feet in height, footprints later discovered at the scene were up to 40cm in length. "We weren't sure what it was first," said Qingalik. "It is not a human being, it was really tall, and kept coming towards our direction and we could tell it was not a human."

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman has been studying Bigfoot for over 50 years. "It sounds like a traditional kind of sighting," he said. "I think the only thing I would wonder about would be the height of 10 feet with a footprint as large as you said. But that happens when people exaggerate."

"Two women in Nunavik had an unusual encounter while berry picking on Saturday."

I didn't say they weren't civil.......just bashing hell out of each others facts.....counter facts......extrapolation of facts......theory......and conjecture. .....and in a most gentleman-like way. Seems I'm the only one who gets the stalkers.

And this is relavent how? That monkeys and apes die? If (if...) bigfoot is real, then it would be dropping bodies, I totally agree. And I even agree that we should have found said body by now. I'm only saying that bigfoot is not a unreasonable, supernatural creature, other then we've found no bodies or bones. I'm only saying that statistically there is a chance. You should know that it is impossible to Proove a Negative. Yet you are claiming that is exactly what science says about BF and that it is 100% not real. Using the precenceived Conclusion of "bigfoot is not real"... [More]

Ah... we're old Fencing Buddies, right Neo??? I certainly don't take offense. It is all part of the Game, of posting... Entertaining oneself, on internet forums. Basically it is a mental workout and Neo is a super fine opponent. I usually let him win eventually. Hoping that I've made a few good thrusts and parries.

Shut up YOU!!! LOL! Actually, I've had some Forum members (Now Banned) who tried to stalk me into real life. That is really scary. Total fanatics, I don't want to deal with.

See, this is where I think you are wrong. The height I cannot comment on, but many of the sasquatch sightings I have read up on, the height was usually estimated between 6 and 8 feet, and like other posters said, it is hard to judge height. As for the "go to town/hiding" comment. Well, (out here), there are native tales of conflict with these "hairy mountain people". If there was indeed violence and conflict between them in days long since past, it would make sense that the Sasquatches developed a good fear of us "normal" humans - a fear that would be taught and...

Of all of the reports I've seen, I don't recall any reporting 6ft tall. They are all from 7-12 ft tall. Very few children. Can children hide better than adults. I don't know if you can teach a child not to be curious. But many sightings are from people who are staying in cabins or from people who were on they're back porch. These hairy people would be freezing. Some would most certainly break the code and use a cabin for rest.

Ok, I didn't realize you'd actually found some prints. My own "openness" to the possibility comes from what two different friends of mine shared with me, my only "encounter" happened back in the very early nineties in Georgia when I was living down there. I was hunting, staked out a place and was sitting all covered in camo, I was using fox pee as a cover scent, then I suddenly got this nasty smell, like nothing I'd ever experienced in the woods, very strong and as I recall made me want to get up and move to get away from it. I didn't, but I looked all aro... [More]
