Jane Goodall Thinks Bigfoot is Real

Jane Goodall Thinks Bigfoot is Real April 22, 2015

Today’s crypto-zoology bombshell.

I don’t have strong views on  this.  My wife has a friend who says she saw Bigfoot once.  So there’s that.

Also the uber-reliable Daily Mail reports that a geneticist named Brian Sykes has done DNA analyses of the descendants of a 19th Century Siberian apewoman and thinks she was a yeti.

    I believe in Bigfoot – one the kids who lived across the street from us had a size 23 shoe – what more proof do we need?

  • Mark S. (not for Shea)

    The problem with Bigfoot: For a species of that size to survive, they need a.) a sizeable breeding population, and b.) A LOT of daily calories.
    .
    There is not a single shred of verifiable evidence of point a. Not a corpse. Not a bone. Not a tuft of fur. Not a pile of poo. Nothing. Nothing speaks volumes in this case.
    .
    As for point b, Bigfoot would either have to be carnivorous or the only primate on the planet that hibernates in order to survive a North American winter on the calories available. If there were hundreds of 7 foot carnivorous primates running around North America … well, that brings us back to point a, doesn’t it?
    .
    More things in heaven and on earth and all that, so I’m not willing to write off Bigfoot completely. But by all logic and the lack of evidence, if Bigfoot does exist, then the only plausible explanation is a supernatural one.

      Ghost Bigfoot!

        Anyone who has ever gone on vacation with a dog knows that you sometimes have to pull over to let the dog out for obvious reasons. I like to think that’s what Bigfoot is: The alien equivalent of a pet dog. The UFOs are buzzing by Earth, and they have to drop by to let the dog out.

        • Rebecca Fuentes

          This would explain a lot.

    i also believe in bigfoot, as is noted in the comments section, i’ve heard many tales of men who wake up unexpectedly after a long night of drinking with an ape-women.

    • Newp Ort

      I once had to chew off my own arm , like a coyote in a trap, just to escape without waking the she-beast I so drunkenly wooed mere hours before!

      I promptly quit drinking after that incident. (Until I discovered I could hoist a glass with my other arm.)

    • Alma Peregrina

      I also believe in Bigfoot.

      Bigfoot: if you’re reading this, do know that you have the potential to make all your dreams come true! You CAN do it! I believe in you!!!

  • The question is, does Bigfoot believe Jane Goodall is real?

    • Alma Peregrina

      My question is: does reality believe Jane Goodall is Bigfoot?

  • Jane Goodall is a “scientist”. We’re told that science is based on facts and evidence – not feelings. Goodall say’s she’s a romantic, so she always wanted them to exist. Hardly scientific.

    • Donn Ahearn

      Romantics make the best scientists. It’s what put Einstein and Newton head and shoulders above their contemporaries. And you are now dismissing the woman more or less directly responsible for 90 percent of what we know about chimps. Oh-kay there.

      • I’m not buying your “romantics make the best scientists” claim. You haven’t produced any evidence proving that assertion other than a notion that Einstein and Newton were “romantics”. Goodall is responsible for what we knew about chimps, mainly because she’s been at it so @#$%@ long.

  • Tres Majestus

    For every large hairy 7 to 10 foot tall upright humanoid creature which leaves footprints that have dermal ridges reported, there are 10 people who wouldn’t bother facing the ridicule. It’s probably a ‘walk-in’, coming into this world to feed and disappearing back into it’s non-understandable world. Being delegated hilarious by most is it’s defense.

    Maybe his wife really saw Bigfoot once.

  • Dave Watson

    Have you ever wondered why Bigfoot and UFOs are seen in the same places?

      They are!

  • Jeff Kindrick

    For anyone seriously interested in this subject, I would suggest the following books available from Amazon: “Sasquatch-Legend Meets Science” by Dr. Jeff Meldrum and “In Search of the Unknown” by William Jevening. These provide a good introduction to the subject and answer some of the questions posed earlier in these comments. For those who may want to move beyond the basics, “Sasquatch Field Guide” by Dr. Meldrum is a worthwhile purchase.
