Bigfoot

[a.k.a. Abominable Snowman, Sasquatch, Yeti, Big Red Eye]

Bigfoot is an apelike creature reportedly sighted hundreds of times around the world since the mid-19th century. The creature is described as standing 7-10 ft tall and weighing over 500 lb. The creature goes by many names, it is best known as “Bigfoot”, but New Jersey has it's own large footed creature know as Big Red Eye.

Like Bigfoot, Big Red Eye sightings of the northwest corner of the state describe a large bipedal creature covered with long hair from head to toe. However most remember the creature as having glowing red eyes. 

Over a period of a couple of weeks in 1977, strange moaning sounds and eerie haunting screams filled the night along Wolfpit Road in Sussex County. It always started around 2 a.m. and went on until almost dawn. The wailing noises were constant, and they lasted for hours. It sounded like some kind of huge primate. 

While the ancodotally, the legendary has been around for over 100 years, the Bigfoot phenomina started on Oct 20, 1967, at Bluff Creek in northern California.  Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin filmed a walking apelike creature with pendulous and hairy breasts.

Most scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot because the evidence supporting belief in the survival of a prehistoric bipedal apelike creature of such dimensions is scant. There are no bones, no scat, no artifacts, no dead bodies, no mothers with babies, no adolescents, no fur, no nothing. Not that there aren't "sightings" of such. The evidence for Bigfoot’s existence consists mainly of testimony from Bigfoot enthusiasts, footprints of questionable origin, and pictures that could easily have been of apes or humans in ape suits. There are "sightings" galore. However, there is no evidence that any individual or community of such creatures dwells anywhere near any of the “sightings.” In short, the evidence points more towards hoaxing and delusion than real discovery.

Skeptic or Believer, we've all heard strange things in the woods; keep your head up, you never know what you might see
