Opinion on Sasquatch
Bigfoot is, without a doubt, the most recognized mystery. The apelike being has reportedly been sighted thousands of times since the beginning of the 19th century. According to eyewitness testimonies, Bigfoot, also known as Sasqautch, is a gigantic beast that is tall and weighs as much as six hundred pounds. Reports also say that the monster's form is well built and usually covered in a thick, brownish fur.

The town newspaper, the Antioch Ledger, reported that a "gorilla man" or "wild man" had been sighted in the woods near the town. The paper deemed it unsafe to travel outside unless absolutely necessary because of the beast. Next, in 1901, a lumberjack on Vancouver Island reported seeing a "man beast" washing itself in a river near his base camp. The courageous lumberjack decided there and then to approach the beast and confront him. The strange "monkey man" quickly fled, though, as the man approached the river. Upon examining the tracks left behind, the lumberjack explained how the prints were almost identical to a human being, except for the extremely large size. After the incident, many reports began pouring in from the Vancouver area of Canada. The residents of the area became well aware of the existence of the creature in the area, and it was they who first coined the term Bigfoot. By 1960, thousands of reports on the existence of Bigfoot flooded in from all over the United States....
