Daryle has left a new comment on your post "Newspaper Column":
Your column is always interesting. Now to the point, people that report bigfoot sightings will continue to be put under a clouded microscope because it's the only way authorities can explain away sightings of these elusive creatures.
During my 40 year career with BLM, we took unknown numbers of sightings but wasn't permitted to enter them in a database. The reason is that until one is examined we can't specify what it might be.
Cougar sightings are different because the animal is accepted in science and has large numbers throughout America.
Between 1965 and 1995, I received over one hundred such sightings with good physical evidence to back up the oral report. [Bigfoot sightings, right?] Still it was never entered into any database because no database exist for the sasquach/bigfoot /wildman as of my retirement.
Thank you for this great comment. It is good to hear from ones that know about these reports and what has been done with them. ... LNP
