Let me play the devil's advocate here. Yes, the government did find a Bigfoot dead in 1963. OK, it is the function of the government to protect the citizens. They didn't know what it was or if it carried some disease that they couldn't cope with.
Just maybe they thought it was a one of a kind mutant, possibly dangerous to humans. This I'm just guessing on my part but seems to be sound thinking.
Also, a few years before 1963, Bigfoot was named in 1958 in Northern California and the government stated it was impossible for such a being to be undiscovered.
This may be the reason why they don't want this incident well known. It was rumored that after the 1980 eruption of St. Helens 3 remains of the same looking type creatures were found and again removed from public eyes.
So maybe it's possible that the feds know Bigfoot is alive, but doesn't want the public to know because of fear to go into the wilderness areas.
It is still "our right" as occupants of this planet to know about the animals of our world. No amount of "reasoning" should be allowed to take this right away (my opinion). Thank you for the thoughtful comment. ... Linda Newton-Perry
