Someplace in Oregon last week a cougar was seen walking lazily through a pretty, landscaped mobile home park. An elderly woman troubled with insomnia, was sitting on her front porch late at night when she observed this big cat moving down the middle of the street as if it owned the place. We know cougars are plentiful in Oregon. Why? Well, it seems that not much time elapses between sighting reports. So, we know there are plenty of them. And because of the sighting reports the animal is not considered endangered.
Could this work for bigfoot? What if everyone that has seen a bigfoot or sees a bigfoot, reports it? Soon the government agency responsible for such animals would be aware of their true number. The animal would not be considered endangered because of the many sightings, right?
Just as you would not hesitate to report a cougar near your home, why not report bigfoot when you see one? There are so many guesses as to just how many sightings over the years have not been reported. The number of guesses might surprise you. And just where does one report a bigfoot sighting? Please let us know where you’d report. I’ve often thought if I saw a bigfoot, I’d take the information to the local TV station, and to the local paper.
An ongoing stigma lingers where bigfoot is concerned. What stigma? you ask. That would be the laugh in your face stigma, with just the mention of the animal. Once bigfoot is on the list of known animals, the laughing will stop. It will stop abruptly. And some believe that harmful problems, hit you in the wallet problems, will materialize. For example, forests may be closed and not just in Oregon, but across the US.
Doesn’t it make sence to report bigfoot sightings, considering the consequences? Why not endure a few uncomfortable minutes of smirking and head shaking from the person taking your bigfoot report to get to the truth about these animals, to get their true number? I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that bigfoot may in fac,t be few in number. Whatever the case proves to be, the truth should be revealed. As citizens of planet earth, it should be our right to know about all the animals that exist, including bigfoot. Remember bigfoot may seem funny to some, but in reality . . .

Can't you see, in your mind's eye, bigfoot enjoying himself in this refreshing river? What is going to happen to our access to rivers and forests once bigfoot is "discovered"? What do you think? Click on photo for larger view.
