    I'm not convinced the poll exists.

    OK, now I am.

    Almost every photo taken of said mythical creature is out of focus. Even then, some have been zoomed in enough to see zippers. So no.

    The only true Sasquatch that exists is for Jack Links. Yes, I'm proof that advertising works.

    "New species" are found every once and a while.That's been documented.
    Why not a creature like Sasquatch?
    Sure, a lot of the "evidence" turns out to be hoaxed. That's how people are. Same with UFO's and Crop Circles.
    I think there's more out there than we think there is.
    I try to keep an open mind about such things, although I'm not a dreamer or an enthusiast on such matters.

    Crop circles are done with ropes and planks of wood. No mystery there.

    UFO's? Yeah, there's plenty of debris zipping about the place up there...but spaceships? Nah.

    Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. "Run, he's fuzzy, get out of here"

    Sasquatch is roughly the size of a bear. We know bears exist because they leave remains, both modern and archaeological. You can find all sorts of bear bones throughout the history of North America, even a few bear carcasses.

    No such record exists of the sasquatch. I find it hard to believe there's megafauna walking around in North America that we can find no fossil record of nor current proof of existence, and that said population would have sufficient numbers to avoid extinction.

    So no. No such creature exists.

    Well, sure...they're not as plentiful as those big predatory cats on the moors, but there are a lot of squatches out there.

    By the way, people who are into sasquatches refer to them as 'squatches' because it's the cool thing to do.

    Or inter-dimensional creatures.

    You have entered the Twilight Zone (cue TZ theme music)
     
  16. I think that it's possible. I don't believe that it would be hard to stay hidden if the creature had human-like intelligence and the survival instincts that a wild creature has.

    Maybe one day we'll know for sure. Until then, I'm not going to discount it just because the belief is not mainstream.

    I think if there is a sasquatch type creature roaming around, it's probably some sort of cross breed between two bear species. That would seem to be pretty logical, at least to me.

    I think it's a crossbreed between a bear and a great ape. Or maybe a grape ape.
