Bigfoot May Be Missing Link

Scientists think Bigfoot may be an early form of man thatlived 10-15 million years ago and still exists in theHimalayas. Fossilized remains of such creatures have beenfound in Turkey, Kenya, Nepal, India and Pakistan, whereBigfoot sightings have been reported.

Chinese scientists believe Yetis may be a "missing link"between ape and man that has survived, in small numbers,into the 21st century. The Chinese have the oldest recordsof Yeti sightings. Qu Yuan, a poet who lived from 340 to 270BC, recorded the sighting of a very hairy "man-like"creature in the mountains. A painting of a "Wild Man" wascreated during the same period. In modern China, there weresightings of the Abominable Snowman by members of theChinese Biological Research and Investigation Team in 1977.They have also found footprints and unidentifiable samplesof hair.

The Yetis of the Himalayas are of ordinary human height,with a stooping posture and a sloping forehead. They havelong arms and are covered in long red, or sometimesgrayish-black, fur. They are nocturnal, so they probablyhave excellent night vision, and they avoid intruders, sothey must have excellent hearing as well. Professor Igor Kozlov of Russia has recorded hundreds ofBigfoot encounters in the Asian parts of the former SovietUnion. These creatures are loners, sleeping by day andleaving their shelters at dusk in search of food, withspecially-structured feet that help them move quickly overthe snow. He thinks Bigfoot may be a distant cousin ofNeanderthal man.

Whatever Bigfoot is, he shows up regularly in the U.S. aswell. Dennis Murphy says he?s seen him several times whilefishing in northern Wisconsin. He first saw two agingBigfoots while searching for a fishing spot 30 years ago. Hesays he didn't say anything at the time out of fear of beinglaughed at.

A Washington man also says he saw something that looked likecross between a man and a bear while fishing with his son."All of a sudden, less than 100 yards away, we noticed anentirely black upright creature. It immediately walked fast-- didn't run -- up a hill and was gone,? he says. ?We foundone print that was about 12 to 13 inches long on the side ofthe road." It was "totally black, like a black bear. It hadno facial features that we could detect at all. It didn'tappear to have a nose, eyes, mouth or anything." The BigFoot Research Project believes there are there are between2,000 and 6,000 Bigfoots living in North America.
