Is This Photo Evidence of Bigfoot In Oregon Forests?
For decades people have searched all across the United States in hopes of finding evidence of the great sasquatch creature better known as Bigfoot.
The giant ape-like creature has reportedly been spotted in every U.S. state though there are some states that have reported sightings much more than others. Among the states that have reported the most sightings are California, Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Texas, Oregon, and Washington.
Now a team of researchers who have been hunting the beast down say they may have found him in the forests of Oregon.
According to Fox News,
The researchers tracked Bigfoot 'hotspots', analyzed footprints and used thermal cameras to hunt for the legendary beast.
One of the team members is Mireya Mayor, a primatologist at the Florida International University.
She said that an undiscovered primate hiding out in dense Oregon forests "is totally within the realm of possibility," speaking to Live Science.
Mayor previously discovered a new species of mouse lemur in 2001.
The mouse lemur is very small, but she still thinks that very large primates could hide from humans very effectively.
"We've seen that through history with other apes," Mayor explained.
"When I went in search of western lowland gorillas, because of the dense vegetation that they live in, the fact that they're not habituated and in fact avoid humans at all costs, there were times where we were no more than three feet away from a 450lb silverback and didn't know that it was there for a good hour or two."
Take a look a the thermal photograph below:
In the past, there have been a number of people who have claimed to have found evidence of Bigfoot or that they have even captured him, all of which turned out to be fake. This time may be different, or it may not.
