World of Mysteries – On the Trail of Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 31st, 2014

Is there an unknown beast lurking in the forests of the American Northwest? Thousands of people say they’ve seen it. It is part ape, part man, almost nine feet tall, covered head to foot in thick dark hair, and it walks on two legs. It’s sometimes called Sasquatch, a Native American word, one of more than eighty names they have for such a creature. More commonly it’s known as Bigfoot. Could this beast be the fabled missing link that proves we humans are descended from apes? A link that if proved, would be explosive!

It challenges our thinking about everything we know about science, about culture, about mythology, this is a creature that shouldn’t be, yet is.

It is a mystery to be solved, all the evidence is not in, and we haven’t yet one way or the other conclusively proved that it exists, or that it does not exist.

We have footprints supposedly left by this creature, and countless eyewitness stories, yet we still do not have any corpses, blood samples, or even bones. So does this creature exist, or is this simply the biggest hoax in human history.

“On the Trail of Bigfoot”, is a 2002 documentary, from the “World of Mysteries” series.

  1. DWA responds:

    Well, the first two paragraphs of that teaser contain several misconceptions. We have “missing link;” “nine feet tall” (big ones, maybe); “sasquatch” as a Native word (as with so many “Native” words it’s a mangling); “shouldn’t be” (no reason, actually, to think that; biogeography tells us to expect it).

    But one thing they got right: “biggest hoax in human history.” Practically no one who looks at this skeptically ever devotes any thought to what would have to be true for sasquatch not to be real.

  2. Goodfoot responds:

    DWA: That IS the question, isn’t it? What could it possibly mean for all these things to come together, and yet for Bigfoot to not exist?

    I surprised myself by ending up liking Poirier a bit in the end. Though he reminds me of Hulk Hogan. 🙂
