If we stumbled upon a family of Sasquatch in a cave somewhere do you think we would find water bottles, food containers, or plastic bags?

I feel like they would have the right amount of intelligence to see these items as useful. I know it's a ridiculous image, but they could collect things in bags and carry stuff around with greater ease. Maybe put fish in a garbage bag they collect? Have there been any documented cases of chimps/gorillas using our trash for any useful purpose?

There are actually some accounts of Bigfoot rummaging through trash, like the first sighting in this list at https://bigfootbase.com. The creature was apparently sitting on the side of the road digging through a green plastic bag.

Not to mention there's plenty of stories of these things dumpster diving.

What do you think?

That would imply some level of intelligence - the usage of tools. Some animals do employ tools in a primitive way - monkeys using rocks to smash stuff or sticks to scratch there backs, leaves to swat flies. But advanced usage like water bottles and garbage bags? If we go that far, with that level of cognition, then we must assume they are stealing a car now and then to drive around, or a TV to check sports scores.

IMO They don't do that. Too smart. They try to leave any trace, Dumpster diving for food? A definite yes. I can easily say that they use very few caves. Creates a trail from the in and out activity and they definitely won't use any cave that has only one entrance and exit. You will find them at parks with a creek or river a orchard right next to your house or a cornfield near you.;

THE CREEK'S THE CREEK'S;THEY ALWAYS FOLLOW THE CREEKS!

There seems to be two schools of thought - some people say they are migratory and move with the food-source animals up and down a mountain or to below the snow level and others think they seem to have a territory which they protect all the time.

The common factor is a source of water, so yes, creeks and folks often find footprints near bodies of water.

When food becomes scarcer, then they are going to hit the dumpsters at nighttime on the edge of town where that borders some shrubland and cover.

Some people say they have seen them wearing shirts which is bizarre but I suppose the young ones could be interested in clothes hanging on a clothes line perhaps.

There are so many down where there is plenty of game. Opportunists ? Definitely. All ol Harriy needs to do to get an easy meal is to just wait near a Deer Crossing area and lay down and rest and just wait for that SMACK of a deer being hit. Wounded deer runs a 100 yards and lays down to die. All wounded deer try to go to water. The BF whacks the deer and eats it and the gets a drink from the creek. The her eats some blackberries for desert. Most definitely an Opportunist.

They will lay up under some bridges that are hard to access by humans from either end.
