Just think of all the witnesses and research groups who have found, footprints, visual confirmation, sound confirmation. and off course eye-witness reports and recordings. And did you know that there is DNA evidence to? But It’s ok to wonder WHY there hasn’t been any evidence in form of a dead Sasquatch`s physical body, or a captured alive one. Which would maybe be to prefer.
In America the story of Sasquatch is old. Stories of a “wild man” existed among the Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest long before white colonists moved in. Versions of Bigfoot ranged from harmless giants who stole fish from fishermen’s nets, to cannibalistic monsters living on mountain peaks. These stories varied from tribe to tribe, and even from family to family, which meant that Bigfoot had a lot of different names. In the 1920s, J.W. Burns compiled the local legends for a series for a Canadian newspaper, coining the term “Sasquatch” in the process.
In 1967, the “Patterson-Gimlin film” (Image above) The film shows a tall, hairy “Bigfoot” walking through the forest. Believers in Big Foot note the creature’s inhuman way of walking is a major point toward the film being real. Patterson also claimed to have taken the film to a group of people working in the special effects department at Universal Studios who supposedly said,
“We could try (faking it), but we would have to create a completely new system of artificial muscles and find an actor who could be trained to walk like that. It might be done, but we would have to say that it would be almost impossible.”
The Yeti or the Abominable Snowman “mountain man” is an ape-like cryptid taller than an average human that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the people indigenous to the region, and are part of their history and mythology. Stories of the Yeti first emerged as a facet of Western popular culture in the 19th century.
According to H. Siiger, the Yeti was a part of the pre-Buddhist beliefs of several Himalayan people. He was told that the Lepcha people worshipped a “Glacier Being” as a God of the Hunt. He also reported that followers of the Bön religion once believed the blood of the “mi rgod” or “wild man” had use in certain mystical ceremonies. The being was depicted as an apelike creature who carries a large stone as a weapon and makes a whistling swoosh sound.
On 19 March 1954, the Daily Mail printed an article which described expedition teams obtaining hair specimens from what was alleged to be a Yeti scalp found in the Pangboche monastery. The hairs were black to dark brown in colour in dim light, and fox red in sunlight. The hair was analyzed by Professor Frederic Wood Jones, an expert in human and comparative anatomy. During the study, the hairs were bleached, cut into sections and analyzed microscopically. The research consisted of taking micro-photographs of the hairs and comparing them with hairs from known animals such as bears and orangutans.
Jones concluded that the hairs were not actually from a scalp. He contended that while some animals do have a ridge of hair extending from the pate to the back, no animals have a ridge (as in the Pangboche “scalp”) running from the base of the forehead across the pate and ending at the nape of the neck. Jones was unable to pinpoint exactly the animal from which the Pangboche hairs were taken. He was, however, convinced that the hairs were not of a bear or anthropoid ape.
A large humanoid creature that is thought to live in the Caucasus mountains in central Asia and in parts of southern Mongolia. Unlike more common reports of the Yeti and Bigfoot in the west the ALMA more closely resembles a wild human form than a bipedal ape, its name literally means “wild man” in Mongolian. The creature has been reported for hundreds of years by people in these regions and is considered something of a legend to the local population.
Now a leading geneticist claims to have found the best evidence that a woman, Zana who lived in 19th century Russia could have been a Alma / Yeti. She was captured in the mountains in 1850. And lived along side humans for decades. Zana could not speak, even after several decades of living with humans, had never ever learned a word of the native Abhkaz language.
Professor Bryan Sykes of the University of Oxford believes that a towering woman named Zana, had a strain of West African DNA that belonged to a subspecies of modern humans. Her resemblance has been described as that of a wild beast, and “‘the most frightening feature of which was her expression which was pure animal”, one Russian zoologist wrote in 1996 according to a report in the Times.
The man who organised various eyewitness accounts of Zana wrote:
“Her athletic power was enormous.
“She would outrun a horse and swim across the Moskva river, even when it rose in violent high tide.'”
The wildwoman named Zana is said to have lived in the isolated mountain village of T’khina fifty miles from Sukhumi in Abkhazia in the Caucasus, Russia. Some researchers have speculated she may have been an Almas, but the first evidence indicated that she was a human. But Sykes contradict this.
Some have argued that she was a runaway Ottoman slave, but Professor Sykes said her “unparalleled DNA” refutes that theory. Sykes means that the Russian ‘apewoman’ could have been a Alma / Yeti, according to DNA tests.
Yes its reported here also. Between 1950 and 1960 several newspaper articles were printed locally in the countries of Argentina and Chile about a mysterious sighting of what could possibly have been a South American Yeti or Neanderthal man.
La Gazeta, a now defunct newspaper from the city of Santiago Chile reported that Local farmers and one government engineer at the time investigating the possibility of radioactive material in the area claimed finding large strange prints of a creature that was neither human nor any animal found in the region.
The government engineer reported that the prints he saw were very similar to the ones found in the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet which at the time became a worldwide sensation. The footprints and reports of the Yeti like creature came from the high plateaus of the Andes Mountain range which borders Chile and Argentina. The reports by the newspaper stated that some locals of the region of Punena close to the ominous Mole del Nevado Macon mountain range (which rises 6,700 meters above sea level) did not pay much attention to the strange prints at the time. But once the engineer realized that they look similar to the print of the Himalayan Yeti, he knew something strange was going on in the region. However, this was far from the first reports of “giants” in the region.
First mention of these people came from the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan and his crew, who claimed to have seen them while exploring the coastline of South America en route to their circumnavigation of the world in the 1520s. Antonio Pigafetta, one of the expedition’s few survivors and the chronicler of Magellan’s expedition, wrote in his account about their encounter with natives twice a normal person’s height:
“One day we suddenly saw a naked man of giant stature on the shore of the port, dancing, singing, and throwing dust on his head. The captain-general [i.e., Magellan] sent one of our men to the giant so that he might perform the same actions as a sign of peace. Having done that, the man led the giant to an islet where the captain-general was waiting. When the giant was in the captain-general’s and our presence he marveled greatly, and made signs with one finger raised upward, believing that we had come from the sky. He was so tall that we reached only to his waist, and he was well proportioned..”
Pigafetta also recorded that Magellan had bestowed on these people the name “Patagão” (i.e. “Patagon”, or Patagoni in Pigafetta’s Italian plural), but did not further elaborate on his reasons for doing so. Since Pigafetta’s time the assumption that this derived from pata or foot took hold, and “Patagonia” was interpreted to mean “Land of the Bigfeet”. However, this etymology remains questionable, since amongst other things the meaning of the suffix -gon is unclear. Nevertheless, the name “Patagonia” stuck, as did the notion that the local inhabitants were giants. Early maps of the New World afterwards would sometimes attach the label regio gigantum (“region of giants”) to the area.
Surprisingly, the famous world rewound explorer Ivan Terence Anderson made references to a Yeti like creature that supposedly roamed the Andes Mountains of Chile during his explorations in the 1950’s and 1960’s, yet these well-documented events never reached the world-wide status of the Yeti from Tibet.
The most detailed report of an abominable snowman came from a group of locals from a small village located in Rengo, Chile. The men of the twenty families living in the province of Rengo, swore on their children’s lives a half-man, half-ape creature exist in the area. One of the men, a farmer by the name of Absalon Valencia gave the statement that in December of 1957 a group of hunters and himself from Rengo came across a hairy animal which one of the members of the hunting party noticed walking crouched along the rocks nearby. Scared, several of the men fired at the hairy animal and to their surprise the animal stood up and began to run like any bipedal creature. All us became startled, stated Valencia, seen that the strange being was running away we notice it was a type of man-ape with a colossal height. The man-ape had long arms and long dark hair which reached his waist and wore animal skins to cover his body. We all thought we were seeing things or it was just a crazy local living in the mountains, but I can assure you, stated Valencia to the reporter, that the men and myself had never seen such a tall being, the being must have measured two and a half meters (8 feet).
If these reports are true, they are unfortunately difficult to confirm, although the newspapers did exist at one point, no photographic evidence exist of any prints.
Yowie is one of several names given to a hominid reputed to live in the Australian wilderness. The creature has its roots in Aboriginal oral history. In parts of Queensland, they are known as quinkin (or as a type of quinkin), and as joogabinna, in parts of New South Wales they are called jurrawarra, myngawin, puttikan, gubba, doolaga, gulaga and thoolagal. Other names include yahoo, yaroma, noocoonah, wawee, pangkarlangu, jimbra and tjangara.
In a column in the Sydney Morning Herald in 1987, columnist Margaret Jones wrote that the first Australian yowie sighting was said to have taken place as early as 1795. In the 1870s, accounts of ‘Indigenous Apes’ appeared in the Australian Town and Country Journal. The earliest account in November 1876 asked readers; “Who has not heard, from the earliest settlement of the colony, the blacks speaking of some unearthly animal or inhuman creature … namely the Yahoo-Devil Devil, or hairy man of the wood.
“A few days ago I saw one of these strange creatures on the coast between Bateman’s Bay and Ulladulla. I should think that if it were standing perfectly upright it would be nearly 5 feet high. It was tailless and covered with very long black hair, which was of a dirty red or snuff-colour about the throat and breast. Its eyes, which were small and restless, were partly hidden by matted hair that covered its head … I threw a stone at the animal, whereupon it immediately rushed off …”
Yowie reports have continued to the present day with the trail of evidence following the pattern familiar to most unidentified hominids around the world: eyewitness accounts; mysterious footprints of hotly disputed origin; and no conclusive proof. Some recently reported yowie incidents claim that the death and mutilation of household pets, such as dogs, are the result of yowie attacks.
In August 2000, a Canberra bushwalker described seeing an unknown bipedal beast in the Brindabella Mountains. The bushwalker, Steve Piper, caught the incident on videotape. That film is known as the “Piper Film” (above)
In Scandinavia the reports are not that frequent, but nevertheless there has been a small number of reports from Sweden and Norway. Also here it is described as a dark, ape-like creature covered in thick, dirty, stinky hair. The face is broad with prominent brow ridges, nose pressed flat, with a mouth that juts out from a huge jaw.(Sound familiar?).
The following report has been collected by Jan-Ove Sundberg. This report is from an area north of Stockholm. There are lots of pine woods in that area, which sounds familiar.In the summer of 1985 a Swedish radio reporter talked about strange growls being heard in province of Helsingland. Two elderly moose hunters described how they had been tracking something big and smelly and finally released their dogs to give chase. “The dogs came back with their tails between their legs and were terrified”, said Karl Johansson from Bollnas.
Another sighting took place just south of Bollnas in Sweden Mrs. Gustavsson and her husband not only saw the Swedish Bigfoot but also heard it several times and even claim they found its droppings.. “It came quite close to our cabin and would kind of howl in the moonlight with a voice that reminded us of a human with a bass, very deep. We saw it more like a silhouette against the sky and it never came so close so we could identify it properly”, Mrs. Gustavsson said . “It was huge, powerful and gave the impression of being primitive but also intelligent”. She also claims it had a whistling sound and at times they would hear what was either an echo or another bigfoot, answering the call. When Mr. Gustavsson investigated the area in daylight he found the classical, large footprints and also fresh droppings.
The sightings all sound familiar to the North American bigfoot. Sighted in the wooded isolated areas and the whistling and foot prints. Bigfoot may have a Scandinavian Homins cousin.
“Homins” is the name given to large, human-like creatures that are reported across the world; the creatures that are studied by hominologists. They include hominids, hominoids, and any erect pongids like Gigantopithecus.
From every corner of the world. So many sightings and so much footage and so many videos. And to that also thousands and thousands of witnesses. And all with “almost” the same descriptions. Are they all lying? Is it all fake?
I’ve also many times wondered why so many cultures have their own version of Sasquatch? I believe that the existence of so many separate myths should count as at least some mounting evidence that we really do have several cousins out there in the woods.
But maybe the idea of a wild, man-like ‘other’ creature co-existing with us but just beyond our understanding for the moment.
