    I am undecided.

    The existence of Bigfoot is possible (after all the mountain gorilla was not discovered until 1902), but as a retired science teacher I seriously doubt that Bigfoot exists. When someone comes up with some irrefutable proof of its existence, then I will accept it.

    To many people report seeing bigfoot for it not to be true. I don't believe they are all making it up or don't know what they are seeing. A good friend of mine seen one.

    I'm somewhat uncertain, but MissippiFarmBoy says that he has had encounters with a 'Bigfoot' like creature. I have no reason to doubt his veracity.

    Our minds have tendencies to "fill in the gaps" when we observe things with missing details. Many of the early (as well as recent) "evidence" claims about Bigfoot were later confessed to be fabricated. But that doesn't remove the idea of Bigfoot from people's minds, and when something too fuzzy to be correctly identified is encountered, "Bigfoot" will be preferable to "I don't know" as an answer by many. That many people will cite this same default identification does nothing to bolster the veracity of the claim.

    Long story short, Bigfoot is a hoax until irrefutable evidence demonstrates otherwise.

    If it is fun, why not?
    If it causes fear and impacts you life negatively, then no.

    I think down here we have a 'skunk boy' or something.
    I think it was just a Boy Scout coming back from a long camp out.
