Why Did The Bigfoot Cross the Road?
Note: This article starts out with the premise that Bigfoot/Sasquatch is a fully realized, successful forest-dwelling creature who exhibits all of the most common traits associated with him from many years of comparative anecdotes. Read on.
Ok, picture Bigfoot. It’s nighttime and he is hunkered down in the forest, doing whatever he does. All of the sudden, he hears a noise. It’s a truck on a nearby road, chugging up the hill.
Bigfoot gets up and bounds through the impermeable thickets, gracefully dodging trees and fallen logs, he reaches the forest edge just as the truck is approaching.
In six or eight giant steps, Bigfoot has glided across the double lanes and disappeared back into the deep canopy of trees.
The truck driver is so stunned that he does not even think to apply the brakes, as because of the speed of the astounding creature, he is long past to point of any possible collision anyway.
So as the truck slows to an idle, the driver is left to ponder what he has just seen.
But more importantly, there is the question of ‘why’.
Why did Bigfoot choose this moment to dart out in front of a vehicle at the risk of being struck?
If we are talking about a highly intelligent, highly sensitive woodland beast whose very existence depends on he or she being in fine tune with the enviromment it calls home, WHY would it then choose to risk being injured by running in front of moving metal machine?
Before anyone can suggest it, I will nip in the bud the ‘deer-in-the-headlights’ argument.
Bigfoot EATS deer for breakfast, very literally. He’s smarter than a deer, faster than a deer, He is at the TOP of the Forest ecosystem food chain. So it is ludicrous to suggest that he would be likely to be startled out of a peaceful existence by the sound of an approaching motor vehicle in order to run in front of it in abject fear.
Fear by the way is almost never described as a characteristic of any BF involved in a motor vehicle/Bigfoot encounter. The reaction of BF to the car or truck is nearly exclusively either complete ignorance of just a nonchalant glance as he tromps off again.
So what is it that would prompt the Giant Hairy Person to choose this juncture to cross the road?
Read the following, recent BFRO report:
Recently at about 4am I was traveling east out of Fort Scott, Kansas. Just over the Missouri border the road gets narrow with heavy forest almost coming up to the edge of it. Ahead of me at the end of my headlights I saw something run across the road on 2 legs. It was covered with thick brown hair and it had to be big because in just 2 or 3 steps it was across the road and gone into the forest on the other side. It wasn't a bear or a farm animal because they run on 4 legs. And it wasn't a man either unless he had never had a shave or a haircut in his life. A man might be able to run fast, but he couldn't possibly have a stride long enough to come out of a forest, cross a road, and disappear again into the forest on the other side in just a couple of seconds.
This is the proto-typical report, posted hundreds of times for many years.
Why didn’t BF just WAIT for 15 more seconds to cross the road? And here is the point of my question:
I suggest that Bigfoot WANTED to be seen.
He had ample time (he runs about 35 miles an hour, remember) to avoid the encounter, so he MUST have decided that there was something he wanted to achieve by this, either in his own curiousity, making a simple observation of the humming, gravel crunching machine, or perhaps more likely, just to make the pilot loose his marbles for a moment.
Is Bigfoot’s reason for making an appearance part of a ‘program’ of some sort?
Could Bigfoot populations be trying to make contact with humans in a desensitization plan, in small ‘visits’, in order to prepare us for the full Monty: Bigfoot Human Contact?
