Friday October 29, 2010 | Tracking Bigfoot

October 27, 2010 at 10:14 am | Posted in Coming Up | 7 Comments

For generations people have reported seeing, hearing or encountering large, apelike creatures with human qualities. The creature goes by many names, perhaps the most famous being Bigfoot and Sasquatch. Around Halloween each year, monsters become more popular, but Bigfoot has always captured the imagination of searchers around the world. Is the creature just a cultural phenomena an unknown species? New animal species are discovered all the time and very serious researchers believe that Bigfoot is real. We meet two Bigfoot hunters, one with a background in behavioral psychology and the other a biologist whose work is endorsed by Jane Goodall.

  1. In 1967 Morris Costumes in Charlotte sold a gorilla suit to a guy named Roger Patterson. He filmed the bigfoot hoax in northern California. Visit Morris Costumes website. Unless, of course, they’re part of a vast conspiracy to keep the truth from us.

  2. Mike:

    Just a reminder regarding mythical species. It wasn’t until the l970s that westerners actually saw Panda bears. Up until then they were rarely seen even in China and were treated like bigfoot in the west.

  3. Bones decompose? Really? Ever hear of dinosaurs? The oldest human remains were dated 3.2 to 4.4 million years old. These “experts” are unbelievable. Whats next, a UFO show?

  4. In discussing today’s show with some colleagues, we think it’s a great Halloween prank and can’t wait to see what you have planned for April 1!

  5. agreed! great hoax. the onion coudn’t done better!

  6. Actually, bones do decompose, eventually. Otherwise, when you walked through the forest, the ground would be littered with millions of bones from all the animals who died there. They take a long time, unless they are broken down, though.

    Some conditions can cause bones to fossilize, which is how dinosaur bones are found. Preservation techniques (including mummification and accidental preservation) will cause bones (and even soft tissue) to last much longer.

    That doesn’t necessarily support their claims, but you can’t debunk them with poor logic.
