Whether or not it is credible that a Yeti was responsible for the events on Kholat Syakhl on 1st Feb 1959, the Bigfoot phenomenon is real. What I mean is that there are thousands of people who believe that big foot exists. I have been watching some documentaries on this recently and there are thousands of eye witness accounts from people. Hunters, hikers, people driving their cars, families just out walking etc. reports often of a horrid smell just before seeing said creature. These people obviously believe they seen bigfoot and have no reason to lie. Yet there is no real concrete evidence.
Is this phenomenon just some psychological thing, or are we dealing with an intelligent animal that has only survived to this day because it is so good at being elusive and avoiding humans, leaving very little traces of its existence?
Yes the Big Foot phenomenon seems real enough. Lots of credible sightings etc around the world. But as you say, NO REAL CONCRETE EVIDENCE. I believe people are seeing something. But is it an animal of some kind. There are many good Web Sites dealing with that subject. Its something I keep an eye on. An interesting fact is that there are many reports of UFO activity in the vicinity of Big Foot sightings etc.
I am continuing with my research into this area. There are some very interesting stories and eye witness accounts.
One of the more recent and interesting stories is: The Cowman. The name comes from a. Four year old boy who was suppose to be the first of his family to see a big foot creature in a field that was used to graze cows. Hence the child referred to it as the cowman? It is really creepy to be honest, but I can't see why the family would make it up. Basically, two of the children saw it, the eldest one did not see it clearly. Later, the parents heard the 4 year old talking to someone in his bedroom and when they went to his room found him standing at the window, but whoever he was talking to had gone. He said he had been talking to the cowman? The child described the Cowman as being a big man, but hairy like the cows and also stinky like the cows. He said the Cowman could talk but he couldn't understand him.
Anyway, the following night the husband sat outside with his gun. They lived in the middle of nowhere by the way. His wife and children slept in the same room in the house. In the early hours the husband thought he saw movement near the barn and took his gun over to investigate. Shortly afterwards there was a scream from the house and thenringnof the shot gun.
His wife said that the 4 year old woke her, he was talking near the window and she could hear weird deep chuntering sounds from outside. She jumped up and ran to ward the child shot gun in hand. As she did so a hairy arm came through the window and tried to grab the 4 year old so she shot through the top part of the window, at which point the animal gave some kind of a scream and disappeared.
They left the house ASAP and went to the brothers place. They forgot to lock the front door. The next day when they came back the inside of the house was trashed, but nothing taken. They never went back to the house again. They never relayed the story to anyone other than close friends for many years and have never made any profit from the story.
There seems to be some very compelling stories and yet no concrete evidence. I find it quite strange.
