  • Did History Channel just say “MONSTER SASQUATCH”??? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Can you prove to us that these violent encounters were not somehow provoked? What if there were warnings and people ignored it? How credible are these witnesses? Nobody wants an angry Sasquatch. And if they want you dead, you won’t be on TV right now. I’m sorry... but this frustrating. 🤦🏽‍♀️

  • My guess on the chewed up van. At least one of the cats under assault ran under it and possibly up into the engine compartment to hide. Three other thoughts, millions of cell phones with cameras and not a single photo of a bigfoot. Millions of trail cameras in forests all across the country and no photos of bigfoot. Unless bigfoot is immortal, they have to die and leave their skeleton somewhere?

  • People are quick to deny what they do not understand. Seen things I can't explain; no big deal. It just means our world is bigger than I thought. I don't need to have an explanation for everything. New species are found all of the time. Close family members have seen this beast and it's no biggie. Fascinating though.

  • I found out a long long time ago that. The so called experts are just big ole dummies ( no disrespect ) with a degree and no uncommon sense. If it were common everyone would have it. They are stuck in a book learned rut. The ones who spend time in the woods can teach them much. I used to stay in the woods, saw and heard I thought everything and never thought about a Sasquatch or its existing. BUT when I saw one and I saw it two different times I now know they are REAL, and they are not a hybrid. They are just as human looking as humans themselves. Just hairy except for the face, much much bigger and muscular. A bear walks on two feet looks like a child staggering with its paws straight out paws down, maybe 5 feet tall 6 for a really big one. Short steps and cannot go for long or uphill hardly and only a couple of steps. This thing was agile, fast and sure footed tall and after 2 or 3 seconds of looking at me was gone in a second with one long step into the woods uphill.

  • Covid-19 can jump from Humans to Bigfoot. Remember to wash your hands and feet, plus wear a mask, while hiking in the U.S.A. forests. Sasquatch needs the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine; they need to be vaccinated quickly. Bigfoot are a rare species. Sasquatch are a protected species in Cali, Oregon, Colorado and Pennsylvania. The U.S.A. government is looking for Health-Care Worker Volunteers to vaccinate them. Remember, Bigfoot is an expert at social distancing.

  • Wow, that van was chewed up!! DNR trying to say it was a dog. Hillarious. How many dogs have you seen sit and chew on a minivan fender? Also, Should always try to use a paper envelope to store folic evidence. Just saying. Polygraphs are useless. Not sure theyre even admissable in court anymore. Why use them for sasquatch encounters?

  • There is no reason DNA couldnt be found on things this creature touched. Hairs, blood, everything that humans would leave in objects. If police can solve 50 yr old cold cases with DNA off a cigarette then it should be easy to find the DNA from blood left on objects. Simple DNA analysis should prove if it was human or a animal

  • My theory, based on various videos, personal experience, and some knowledge, as fas as the car damage, is this. That property had a lot of cats. I believe when being attacked, either by one animal, or a pack, one or more cats ran up into the engine compartment. The animal, which I believe to be a canine, or a pack, in a rage, even obsessive rage, possibly even rabid, tried to get at them. My guess, if domestic canine, would be pitbull, American bulldog, Rotty, Cane Corso, Presa, etc. I've seen videos of a pit bull, and pitfalls, attacking cars, ripping bumpers off, doing a lot of damage. I've raised bully breeds for almost three decades. My own pits, when getting into the garbage, often chewed up tin cans, not soft aluminum, but thick tin cans, leaving puncture holes in the cans, yet no tooth damage, when examined. I had a three month old bully puppy, when left in a closet type pen, rip the door frame off, and tear a hole through the door. A powerful canine, with the jaws and musculature, can absolutely, in my opinion, do that kind if damage to that van.

  • I also hit a bear at dusk...there was enough light nearby so that I knew what I hit. The damage to her car doesn't look a thing like the damage done to mine. There was bear hair at different spots on the front of my vehicle. I believe her when she says it wasn't a bear.

  • "The story has never changed so I have to believe they saw the real thing.." give me a break- that's the most ridiculous logic I've ever heard- that's some awfully weak standards for so called "proof". As long as your story doesn't change and remains consistent- it's the truth- that's how kids think. They think if they just keep denying it, just stick to the story- eventually you'll buy it- this guy is a moron. At this point to believe in bigfoot or sasquatch you pretty much have to buy that they not only exist but, that they're also intelligent enough to always hide the remains of their dead and any obvious proof of their existence. Oh- and they must have a hidden, sixth sense that let's them know a camera or cell phone is near by cause no one seems to be able to get anything but grainy, blurry, long distance shots of them. This has forced the bigfoot crowd to now connect them with aliens and government conspiracy- explains all that away conveniently. LOL- I've spent somewhere around 80 % of my life in the wilderness hunting, hiking, fishing, etc.- and the last thing I'm worried about seeing out there is bigfoot. You know what's really a threat- meth cooks. You stumble up on the wrong bunch of hillbillies cooking up their dope and- we've had ppl shot and killed. You go into Bankhead National forest now and they'll warn you before you go in about them- no one says anything about bigfoot. Besides- if you run into him all you have to do is give him a slim Jim or whatever that- was it beef jerky? I can't remember the sasquatch commercials anymore. Pretty sure it was a slim Jim- it was some kind of dried meat stick product thingy.

  • Those test are not valid. The lie detectors are only what they think they saw not what happened. The 360lbs of force is askew cause speed and leverage is not taken into consideration. Dogs can easily do it. The wt that shot the Bigfoot took too big a hit off his glass rose pipe.

  • I was skeptical at first but after approximately 10 months of listening to people emailing their stories on a channel called Dixie Cryptid… You need to hear it for yourself I guess. What’s interesting is they are not always aggressive. Some of them do not want to make trouble they are just as curious about us. Others have also allowed people to walk past them with no aggression at all. Overall it is important to stay as far as we can from these creatures but there is no predicting because sometimes they are friendly curious and just stay in there and watch and other times they don’t want to be bothered and may become aggressive.
