  1. I'm actually feeling apprehensive about all of this now.
    On one hand I want Sasquatch to be proven to exist.On the other hand I'm worried about the ramifications of such a discovery.
    Are humans at all civil enough to accept these beings and let them live in peace or will they be hunted and harassed relentlessly?
    Will governments take appropriate steps to protect this species?
    There is so much to consider.It boggles my mind.

    1. Protect them from who? They probably need protection from the government more than anything or anyone else. They are physically powerful and will be exploited for war, etc.

  2. I was thinking that if they are declared a type of human, then all the laws of murder etc. would apply. The only protection they would need it protection of the land they live off of. And here is my worry, are we going to force them onto reservations and have treaties with them?

    1. They will without a doubt be exploited and controlled IF they are proven to exist. If we leave them alone and stop trying to force them into the public spotlight to satisfy OUR needs for validation, then they should be ok...

      If you really care about them so much as a species, then ask yourself, why do you need them to be proven real to the public? What benefit is there for the species itself? Protection? They are largely left alone now and have been forever. We can only do them harm by seeking to prove they are real.

  3. And take their children and force them to conform to our ways and ship them to boarding schools?

    Surely we've learned something!

    If the government has known about this, as I suspect they have, I wonder if all this talk of killing one is the reason they will be letting the good Doctor release this information.

    1. I am still wondering if they will let her publish it in a meaningful way. Please not it has not come out yet, and we don't know to what extent it will be perceived as solid evidence to the world at large. She could be delayed or stopped from publishing (reason for the delays so far?) and if all else fails she could be ridiculed and the report effectively buried or discredited. They may be waiting for her to commit to this and then slam her hard once she cannot back out.

      On the other hand, maybe the government sees this as their best chance to introduce the reality of sasquatch to the populace in a calm and scientific manner, and will let her go through with it. We shall see.

      I think we can count on the species being hassled if they are "proven" someday, regardless. The only question is how badly and by whom?

  4. Not much will change from now, I suspect. Sure, it's a huge discovery but for the species it's another day in the forest. They have lived by our side for centuries, and it's been mostly peaceful, so why should that change. One big difference now though, you can't shoot at them anymore even if one's on your property, just feel blessed about it rather, and know they won't look funny at your stories anymore down at the local bar.

    1. That would be the ideal result of all this. Hopefully you are right!

  5. Fascinating, utterly fascinating. Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping good judgement and good will prevails for all parties involved. This may prove to be the most memorable event in many lives; I'm very glad I followed my curiosity when I started researching BF phenomenon last month. If BF is proven to exist it will be one of the greatests events of mankind. If proven I will be very sad that I have not had the opportunity to see one with my own eyes yet. Thanks for your time.....
