Do we lose Bigfoot by finding Sasquatch?

What would really happen if we prove Bigfoot is real and could that be a bad thing? That’s not a question most of us ask ourselves in this hobby. We are after all, gung ho on finding every bit of proof we can and sometimes waste more time looking for it than watching cat videos…sometimes.

If we really think about it, there is as much to lose as there... is to gain if we do prove its existence. Bigfoot represents something to most of us that goes beyond just the idea of an unknown species of man-like creature roaming the thicket. Because he resides for now, mostly in our thoughts, we can claim him as our very own. We individually have an image of what he looks like, how he traverses the forests, what he eats, and even how he thinks. We are allowed to do this with impunity because he is “our” Bigfoot and we have, not so far at least, had to share him with the rest of the world in a manner of speaking. If he is ever discovered by science and deemed just another animal on our planet, we risk losing a part of that romance and that special connection that we hold dear with our big footed pal. We all have had the experience, especially when young of being captivated by things that we thought were mysterious, which over time lost that magic once we grew to understand them. We have outgrown fears that once were very real to us, as today we know better than to believe that there are monsters lurking under the bed or in our closet. Mystery is what keeps some things alive and truly fascinating. We love our cryptid and maybe it would just be better if he stays that way, not only for us, but for him as well.

There is the real fear of what would happen to the individual Sasquatch if it were captured. Do we really trust that he would be left alone and not caged, poked and prodded? That’s how we treat every other animal on this planet. Name one that you can’t imagine being in a zoo? Now I know we think that is the last thing that would happen to a creature like Bigfoot, but we can’t always be trusted to do the right thing and I think it would come down to just how intelligent this creature is. The more human like the better chance it has, but if it shows traits that keep him thought of as just another beast, he will most likely find himself housed right next to the great apes at your local zoo. While I know every one of us would line up to buy tickets to see that, we would be in essence betraying something that at least us in the Bigfoot community hold as sacred.

Is it worth it, or do we regret our choice after there is no turning back? I am torn really and it wasn’t until yesterday while writing another post (Spike TV’s 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty) that this realization even occurred to me. We risk losing Bigfoot by finding him.

In some ways a dead Squatch (found body, not shot) would be better than a living one, because at least we know we are not going to make it suffer by caging and ultimately torturing it. One could never justify keeping something like a bona-fide Sasquatch locked up in an enclosure or some observation pit for the rest of its natural life. We also keep 99 percent of the mystery intact with just a body and then we and it move on to the way things were. Is that selfish of me? I don’t know the answer to these questions really, and like I said it is not something most of us have really pondered to the extent that we see it to its final conclusion, so it makes a good topic for discussion which I hope you all take part in. There are pros and cons to this that I see clearly, but no easy answer. So let me know what you think in the comments below?

Ready, set…Bigfoot!

  1. Looking back on human nature, I think the species might as well be considered extinct if proven to exist.

  2. I would say protected for sure, but studied. I personally would love to know as much as I could about such a creature, while doing it no harm, mentally or physically.

    1. yeah I think once it is accepted as being real by the scientific community the more important new research becomes.

  3. Share it with the rest of the world? Are you saying that as a Canadian, U.S. Citizen, or North American? What if it turns out the Yowie of Australia or Yeren of China is a subspecies of Sasquatch and they get one first, would they be sharing their discovered hominid with us too?
