How does bigfoot survive the winter? It is my opinion that these animals have been given, by our Creator, all the necessary instincts needed to survive all seasons.
There are so many examples of food for one animal that are deadly to another that I will not enlarge upon the subject here. And bigfoot is certainly clothed with heavy hair or fur. (I’ve never understood the difference.) I feel that bigfoot is like a big, furry dog, think of the sled dogs.
These dogs are safe and sound with the wind howling and snow flying. They just tuck their noses under their paws and sleep soundly. And, of course, dogs pant to keep cool in hot weather. Perhaps bigfoot has the same ability.
I believe it is not necessary for us to worry over bigfoot’s ability to take care of himself in his wild home, the woods, the forests, the mountains. Just like many animals in this fantastical world, bigfoot probably has only one enemy to be concerned with and that would be man.
It seems many people enjoy the subject of bigfoot. I’m certainly one of them. Many animals, however, I find just as delightful, such as the giraffe and zebra. Again, I’ll not continue because the list is just too long for the space allowed here.
I will say that even the microscopic world has myriads of life forms that could awe us and scare us, if they lived in our larger-scaled world. Who hasn’t seen these little beasties, shown under a microscope: armor-plated dragons, monsters of all variety? Maybe, just maybe these numerous and fascinating creatures are one of the reasons our scientists are not taking seriously this big, lumbering, biped. After al, they have plenty of animals to study from the breathtakingly beautiful to ... Well, you get where I’m going.
While I enjoy bigfoot, writing Bigfoot Ballyhoo and this column, I enjoy even more the interchange of ideas allowed by readers commenting on our online bigfoot magazine, Bigfoot Ballyhoo.
I spend much time each day scouring the internet for interesting videos and articles that I can link to for my readers. Occasionally, someone will tell us of a bigfoot sighting which makes all the work worthwhile.
So, keep it up. Let’s continue to talk bigfoot so that one day it will become commonplace. (You may write to the Perrys at P.O. Box 334, Sutherlin, Oregon, 97479.) Until next week, Linda and Christopher Perry
BPB has left a new comment on your post "Guest Editor-Blogger":
This comment is in response to Rich and Paul. While your certainly entitled to your opinions, your arguments do not hold water. First of all, it is a statistical fact that the majority of BF sightings occur in the summer, this leads some researchers and scientist to the opinion that BF, like bear, hibernate during the colder months, or at least hunker down in a protected,warm area.
Several scientists and wildlife biologists have done studies (most recently John Bindernagel in the Pacific Northwest) have found there is more than enough food to support a breeding population of large (500 to 1000 pounds) primates.
ON the subject of finding bones or remains, I have spent quite a bit of time in the woods, and I have to say, animal remains are rare.Sorry,let me re-phrase that,remains of animals that have died of natural causes are rare. Usually if you find remains the animal has been killed by humans or by attack from a predator.
When animals become ill they find a place to hide.They know they are weak and vulnerable so they hole up and that is usually where they die.Even when a wild animal dies somewhere in the open, it is usually only a matter of days before the carcass is decomposed and everything is eaten and scattered by other animals.
All the evidence we have points to BF's being very intelligent and mostly nocturnal.They have been observing humans for a long time and know that we are dangerous to their survival.Because of this many researchers believe that they make efforts to hide from us and if you are lucky enough to see one, it's because they made a mistake or they wanted you to see them.
Another interesting fact is that we think they are capable of producing infra-sound.Wildlife Biologists have determined that many animals are capable of producing this. Humans hear sounds at a certain decibel range, infra-sound is noise produced at low decibels that we cannot hear. Even though we can't hear it, these sounds can affect our bodies in different ways. It can make you sick or even scared.This is why so many witnesses talk about feeling ill or disorientated right before seeing a BF.
All in all there is plenty of good evidence to support the existence of these creatures,unfortunately most people either don't read it or they choose to ignore it.
Thank you so much for this detailed comment. It makes one wonder how in the world will science ever be able to examine this animal if they ... Well ... Again thanks and comment often. I love doing this blog, and it is so much more enjoyable when readers talk to me by commenting. ... Linda Newton-Perry
