My 2€?

This fantasy has been rumored for at least the last 100 years with nary one shred of accredited scientific proof.

Does this hairy primate have a lifespan of centuries?

If not then there should be a huge tribe of them from keeping their species going extinct.

Why isn't the scenario of it just being a genetically defective human being bandied about?

Has as much credence as this Bigfoot crap...

That's what I was wondering, about 15 pages ago. Unless they can travel vast distances, crossing entire western states and/or national boundaries, they'd become inbred very quickly.

They are being sighted over vast tracts of the United States and in some parts there are several species or sub-species or at least variants of them (or so we are being told). They are in no danger of going extinct, apparently. And there have been reported attacks by them. Well, one report that I know of.

We even have them here in New Zealand!




Moehau Man - New Zealand's Bigfoot | Paranormal NZ

And a bigfoot attack.

Early encounters often talk of these creatures exhibiting aggression and throwing rocks to frighten people off. It was these creatures, largely found in the Coromandel Ranges, that were thought to be responsible for the find of a headless, partially devoured body of a prospector in the Martha Mine region in 1882, later further up in the foothills the corpse of a woman was found, it was discovered she had been dragged from the shack in which she lived while the remainder of her family were away, her neck had been snapped.
I live a few hours away from the area mentioned, that being the Coromandel Peninsular.

Good one!

More could have been done with the head though. That would have made quite convincing.

Our New Zealand 'bigfoot' looks more like a modified gorilla. That would have been the only model to base it on back then. It didn't need photoshop'ing - the artist drew it as he saw fit. I'd never heard of ours until yesterday when I did a google search on a whim. Who would a thought it! I'd think our Kiwi 'bigfoot' was a big hairy bushman gone feral. And we did have 'bushmen' back then. He might even have had some Neanderthal in him (as most of us apparently do). Such a man would have had no problem dragging a woman up a mountain side.

Bob Hieronimus in his testimony about having worn a gorilla suit to play the bigfoot in the film, said that he wore sticks to lengthen the arms, and football shoulder pads underneath the suit. That explains the different ratios.

Also interesting:
