NAWAC Research Group Explains Why They Call Bigfoot An Ape

No one knows for sure what bigfoot is exactly, at least not yet. We can assume certain things, like it's a mammal, and seems to fit into the primate family, but there is much debate over whether or not bigfoot is an ape or a type of human. One group in particular is firm in their position, and they explain why they consider bigfoot an ape.

It purportedly walks upright on feet with five digits and screams “like a woman”; however, this creature is no human. Though it rejects the romantic notion of a long-surviving proto-human, the wood ape is nonetheless the reality that we are left with after examining centuries of evidence. Bigfoot is an animal; the sasquatch is bestial.

During the 1800s newspapers were rife with reports of “Wildmen.” This moniker was given to any and all renditions of hairy—not just hair-covered—bipeds roaming the forests of North America. To jump to the conclusion that every “Wildman” report is sasquatch-related, however, is to ignore the tendency to generalize, stereotype, and outright fabricate stories by the mass media of the time. Decades of folklore passed down by European ancestors raised on tales of the Woodwose (a popular character in European culture) could certainly help account for human characteristics in early wood ape reports.

Occasionally, historical reports of “hair covered” beings with traits that ring true to modern wood ape reports do creep up. They mention creatures “lightning fast” and “hairy from head to toe.” They are seen leaping from trees, running behind farms with dead livestock, and behaving elusively.

During the early 1900s “Wildman” was replaced by the term “ape” in the media. Though these reports are few, newspapers did often report on “giant apes” seen in the vestiges of an expanding America. The behavior patterns remain the same as the apes continue to reject interaction and cling to a shrinking forest habitat.

Outside of newspapers, sightings within modern databases frequently refer to ape-like characteristics and physical attributes. Rarely do sightings of giant, upright creatures call to mind human traits. When asked about his reasoning for his use of the “wood ape” terminology, NAWAC Board of Directors member Brian Brown, and host of the popular podcast The Bigfoot Show, said, “Primarily, they live in wooded habitat and behaviorally act similar to apes.”

A common counter to the ape hypothesis is that these creatures are some remaining form of proto-human. “Homo sapiens is known to have very little body hair, and to have made tools, fire, etc.,” says NAWAC member, Stanislaus National Forest Archaeologist, and author of Giants, Cannibals, & Monsters: Bigfoot in Native Culture, Kathy Strain. “Nothing I’ve seen indicates that wood apes have any of these behaviors or skills.”

The question commonly comes up: “Why an ape”? Why does the North American Wood Ape Conservancy insist on using the term “ape”? After all, no type specimen has been produced to definitively state that this creature is not a surviving Homo neandertalensis, or even, dare I say with tongue planted firmly in cheek, a space alien.

“What we do have… are consistently observed ape behaviors,” says NAWAC member, Brown’s co-host of The Bigfoot Show, Sam Rich. “Using rocks as a mortar to crack nuts, bluff charges, ape-type vocalizations have all been observed in Area X and other locations.”

      I see the illustrious Khat Hansen has joined us. This should be fun.

      Unless of course it is a fake joe account and he/she is just copy pasting others work as their own.


    2. You really are just one big bi*ch aren't you? Ha ha ha!!

      "If anonymity is one factor, psychological and emotional issues are another, according to Suler, who says many trolls likely have problems with depression, low self-esteem, and anger."

      Not even a remote interest to comment on the subject matter... Me thinks your life really isn't that eventful, and I'm starting to feel a little sorry for you.

      : (

    3. Calling people a bi*tch and continuously engaging in arguments not related to the subject is not exactly healthy behavior.

    4. Classic narcissist, void of any moral standing on our own behaviour... Like I said bro, I'm feeling sorry for you. But you're not entirely wrong in this instance. If you want my attention, get something on the subject matter... It gets boring real quick being your shrink.

      Something tells me that's a little beyond you though, and bringing every comment section down with your emotional problems merely makes people thankful they're not you.


    5. >>Not even a remote interest to comment on the subject matter

      NOPE I DO NOT. How can I make this more clear?

      >>Me thinks your life really isn't that eventful,

      Depends....I currently have much drama around me in real life. But it is not directly connected to me. That being said it is in my home and does cause a degree of stress. So I come here to fuck with you.

      >>and I'm starting to feel a little sorry for you.

      If you send me $1,000 American dollars I will leave tonight for the Rocky Mountains And post pics within 2 hours of leaving.

      I will spend 3 days "out in the bush". In mid winter. Because I can. Because my job allows this time off.

      $1,000. Send it and I will prove your monkey man is a fraud.

      Anything longer than 3 days/nights and we will have to talk. For that I have to make my time off work profitable.

      The challenge is yours now son. Put your money where your mouth is.

    6. You have no interest in the subject matter, you have much "drama and stress" in your life, and you come here to just "f*ch with me"? It sounds like you're latching on to Suler's model of the pathetic troll by the second;
      "If anonymity is one factor, psychological and emotional issues are another, according to Suler, who says many trolls likely have problems with depression, low self-esteem, and anger. They want to inject their own emotional turmoil into other people by luring them into negativity. It's a way for them to feel some kind of control or power over their own disruptive emotions, at other people's expense."
      ... Man, that's sealed it. I genuinely feel a little sorry for you now. Expecially that you come here in a direct effort to belittle people in the most cowardice of methods, trying to make yourself feel better only to end up getting even more emotional as a result?


      And what's this? (Cringe) you want money from me now so you can go in your back garden and pretend to look for Sasquatch? (Oh dear) and how do you propose "3 days in the bush" will suddenly eradicate thousands of years of cultural and contemporary anecdotes, and 50 years of track casting, video, audio, and thermal evidences? I've read some crackers on here before now, but congrats... You've at least achieved one of the biggest laughs I can remember on here.

    You know you need a supply of survival foods, but you may not know how to store them. The type of survival food supplies purchased will often dictate how they are stored and how they are rotated to prevent spoilage. The following reviews the most common types of emergency survival food and recommendations for storage and rotation.

  3. The article doesn't really give good reasons to call it an ape. We have no idea how hair covered other species of men were. The article ignores all the attributes bigfoot has that apes don't besides bipedalism, like language, feet shaped like humans, not apes, and facial features such as the nose that is like humans, not apes.

  4. All the Nutjobs Are WACo group needs to do, is used the FOIA, and get the library of Federal studies on Bigfoot. Then they can toss phrases like, "No one knows for sure what bigfoot is exactly". Because many people in high positions, know what Bigfoot is, and Bigfoot sure as heck are not a 24/7 F&B mammal.
