Man builds sculpture after Bigfoot encounter

Clifford LaBrecque had an 8ft fibreglass reconstruction made of the creature he came across in Iowa.
The 73-year-old recounts sightings of a Bigfoot in 1977 behind his home, including one night on which he claims he witnessed an adult creature with two jeuveniles. "When I was a little kid, I heard stories about the wild man of the west, and I began watching out for one," he said. Following an argument with his local newspaper over image copyrights he decided to obtain incontrovertible proof by shooting and killing one of the creatures but despite repositioning his car to provide a good spot from which to fire he was never able to do so.
What is believed to be the only sculpture in the world created to scale in meticulous detail of an adult specimen of the legendary "Bigfoot" resides in this Ozark town.

UM besides the other inconsistencies there is this: Norfork Arkansas in the Ozarks is no where near Des Moines Iowa!

Gorillas have an impact on the ecosystem though and there is evidence of their existence. Europeans only "didn't believe" in Gorillas because Europeans hadn't lived in the Gorilla's ecosystem yet.

Are you asking what impact Gorillas have on their ecosystem? They eat things that grow in their ecosystem and this can be observed and quantified. Each species is a piece in a puzzle that makes up their ecosystem. It would be extremely unlikely that we have a "puzzle piece" in our ecosystem that is a giant ape, yet we just don't see the impact that a species of giant ape would have on our ecosystem.

So he has video but won't show it cause he's worried he'll be ridiculed, yet by not showing it, he is leaving himself open for the same thing! Strange story, I don't believe him.

Sorry, I somehow read your post as you suggesting that gorillas live in Europe and they haven't noticed them because they don't know what to look for. I think I may have read too many of Tailorfrog... [More]
