So, you say to yourself, “I hate the idea of bigfoot. I hate it that an enormous, un-researched animal may actually live in the woods and forests where I often hike, hunt and expect to experience a little peace.”
You’re not alone. I believe many people feel this way, me included. Not that I hate the idea of bigfoot; what I hate is that those people who take care of the forests and woods do not tell us about this animal that many of their own number have seen. I could go on and on using the word “hate.” I’ll stop. Why? Well, because I simply love the forest, its smells, and its calming balm
Love and hate, are indeed, a couple of the most deeply felt emotions. And, of all things, I’m talking bigfoot here. I’m applying these two potentially soul wrenching emotions to an animal that may or may not exist (in many people’s opinion. I’m not one of them. I believe in bigfoot.)
Why should the existence of bigfoot matter? There are many good reasons to confirm its existence. For one, since the animal has not been researched, studied, we don’t know how we should behave if we do encounter one. Remember, people do see these animals; our safety is at stake! Do we stare it down? Do we lower our eyes and back away? Run? I believe, as many do, this animal should be recognized by science and scientists should get on with their research.
Encourage science to take up the study of this animal: if nothing else, why not demand that science work at clearing up the mystery of bigfoot─prove whether it exists or not.
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I’m taken with the colorful leaves, the crisp coolness of the air and the wood-smoke smell of fireplaces ablaze. In
, it often rains this time of year, a lot! I immediately think, “Great, I can find bigfoot’s tracks in the mud.” That’s true, but I can get my car stuck as well. Oregon
Soon the high mountain roads, especially off the main roads, will have snow on them. Please be careful if you “love” to drive these back roads, taking in nature (perhaps watching for bigfoot). These narrow, rain-saturated roads have been known to simply fall away, and that’s without the weight of big off-road rigs.
If you’ve had a sighting, do talk about it. The more we “talk bigfoot” the more commonplace it becomes. Be proud that you’ve seen one of these amazing beings. Please share.
