Maybe it's like Attorneys General, so it should be Bigsfoot?

For that matter, why is it called Bigfoot? It has two feet. Shouldn't it be Bigfeet (singular). So perhaps the plural of that should be Bigsfeet?

The majority of the discussions I've read and seen settle on Bigfoot as both singular and plural. Like moose, sheep, deer ...
As in, "I saw three bigfoot over there". Regarding what you call a group of bigfoot, a group of gorillas is either a band or a troop. Band of bigfoot has a nice ring to it - but given the sounds they're supposed to make, I propose whoop as the group term. "I saw a whoop of bigfoot last night".

Those are very good, thought-provoking points.

There have been thermal images of them walking in the trees too, dont forget.

With modern technology such as FLIR thermal imaging cameras Bigfoot dont stand a chance and we may lose them forever before we realise we ever had them.

From what I read, there appears to be more than one kind anyway. Some are agressive and some just want to protect their hunting area and are quite happy to make loud noises or throw rocks nearby to scare people off.

There is another kind apparently which has the dog face that is reported by the young kids who have been returned alive after being taken.

Maybe there is even a third kind which is the more agressive one which takes the hikers off and mutilates them and leaves shoes and sometimes shoes/feet behind. It is said these ones do not like the colour orange or yellow and folks who are hiking wearing these colours are the ones who are targeted - particularly if they are the ones last in line in a group. The colour seems to enrage the beings and trigger an attack perhaps.

So why do you think there is no official reporting centers for people that have seen monsters under beds? Ive yet to read a historical account were someone believed a monster was lurking under a bed..?


Point is, if people are reporting 'fake' UFOs, fake bigfoots, fake sea monsters, etc etc why wouldnt they also be reporting fake bed monsters?
