Those claiming to have laid eyes on the creature describe it as extremely tall and covered in short hair, the Scottish version of a yeti or Sasquatch. Others report an unseen presence that inspires dread. Also known as Sasquatch, Bigfoot is supposedly a creature that lives in the snowy mountainous regions of the United States and Canada. It may be identified as a gorilla at first, however, its walking posture can be compared to that of a man’s. Many people may be aware of Sasquatch due to the creature being featured in the very funny Jack’s Link jerky commercials, but there are those that do believe that it does exist. When British explorer J. Norman Collie visited the mountain in 1925, he claimed that he’d been wandering about when he heard monstrous footsteps. As he described it, “[As] the eerie crunch, crunch sounded behind me, I was seized with terror and took to my heels, staggering blindly among the boulders for four or five miles.” Several theories have been put forth to explain this occurrence. The most scientific is that the creature is a “Brocken spectre,” that is, an optical illusion caused by a combination of the sun’s angle, fog, and the person’s own shadow to create the appearance of a great, looming beast overhead. Well if you can believe that attempt at scientific explanation, you can certainly believe in the existence of such a creature.
