Should Bigfoot Have Human Rights?
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Bigfoot researchers around the country have been tracking and studying the hairy guys for quite some time now, and they’re coming up with some pretty interesting theories about their behavior. And many details suggest an almost human type of intelligent unmatched my any other primate besides us.  And as new details about his existence come to light in the future, most of us agree he’ll need our consideration and our protection. But as all the new details unfold, we’ll eventually have to ask ourselves, “How much?”
            Lori Marino studies brain and behavioral evolution in marine mammals at Emory University in Atlanta. And she and other researchers involved believe that whales and dolphins, due to their culture and intelligence, should be granted basic human rights. Marino said, “Because of their cultural sophistication, these are enormously vulnerable individuals.” It seems that marine mammals do things like mourn their dead, have a keen sense of fun, display a type of language, and even “talk” in their sleep.
            But what about our big, hairy friends? Those who’ve been lucky enough to have some of kind of encounter with them report all kinds of similar traits. Sound recordings of certain types of howls sound much like they’re in a state of some kind of mourning or distress. Their ability to elude us for centuries while often living right under our noses suggests above-average intelligence, and some very human-like behavior traits like building structures and land marks suggests a type of “culture.”  Some who’ve been lucky enough to have encountered more than one of them in the forest, report their using a type of language to communicate to each other. And it has been suggested by others, though not proven, that they may possibly bury their dead.  And they watch us and study us and they probably know more about us than we do about them.
            But this all begs a question in our minds. How will many animals be regarded by humans in the future as new knowledge about them is revealed? It seems that the lines between human and animal are slowly being blurred.
 Even though a bigfoot reaches upwards of 8 feet tall and up to possibly 600 pounds, certainly doesn’t mean they aren’t vulnerable to humans. Once science proves their existence once and for all, some types of protections will have to be put into place for them.  And if Marino and other scientists can make their point clear to the world about whales and dolphins, it’ll be interesting to see what happens with Bigfoot.
