Today I had the displeasure of watching a SciFi channel fictional film about a group of researchers who encountered a sasquatch in the Pacific Northwest. The film portrayed the sasquatch as a ferocious beast bent on distruction. Anyone who has done the slightest bit of research on the topic knows that evidence points to an animal that avoids encounters with humans. This is why I was disturbed at a show that perpetuates the myths of a ferocious beast roaming the woods.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and my family commonly drove the back roads of some of Oregon’s most popular sasquatch-sighting areas. Although we never sighted the elusive animal, we always kept our eyes trained to the roadside when Dad would inform us we were entering bigfoot country. It’s still an argument amongst the family members as to whether or not sasquatches exist.

Have you done any bigfoot research? Do you believe that bigfoot’s existance is a possibility? What are your reasons for believing the way you do?
