Bigfoot
Many people are not sure whether or not to believe in bigfoot or not. It is simply because there is not enough scientific evidence to support that there is in fact a so called “Bigfoot”. There are many so called sightings from many believers out there but no hard evidence to actually prove that Sasquatch truly does exist. Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is the name given to an ape-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America (Cruze). Bigfoot is usually described as a large, and very hairy creature. Most scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a living animal, because of the lack of physical evidence and the large numbers of creatures that would be necessary to maintain a breeding population. Bigfoot sightings or footprints are often demonstrably hoaxes. Both scientists and Bigfoot believers agree that many of the sightings are hoaxes or misidentified animals. Bigfoot is described in reports as a large hairy ape-like creature, in a range of 6–10 feet tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds, and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair Cruze. Bigfoot is commonly reported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who claim to have encountered it. Some have also contained claw marks, making it likely that a portion came from known animals such as bears, which have five toes and claws. All of these supposedly facts have been said by all of the people to have claim that they have came into contact with Bigfoot. It does not matter what all of these people say because for the people that they want to convince it is all opinion based whether they will believe them or not and that is what keeps making it interesting is because people do not know whether it is real or not and it will always be a mystery until there is actually some hard evidence.
