This is an interesting article by Sybilla Irwin, a bigfoot eyewitness sketch artist, about what bigfoot eye witnesses have in common. Are there certain characteristics they share?
It might be that witnesses have very little in common before the sighting, but not After…. Many people never tell a soul what they have witnessed for years. One witness from Oklahoma had absolutely no intention of ever filing a report. He didn’t even tell his hunting partner the day it happened. He worked for the Department of Defense and said it took him 6 months to process what he’d seen. He decided to write the story for this grandchildren and he locked it in a safe. He only shared it after his grown son asked him directly if he’d ever had an experience.
Sometimes those that do talk about their sightings report being laughed at, or called liars by their own family members, and closest friends. My personal belief is that only 1/3 of sightings get reported for this reason. Many professional people don’t want their names used publicly out of fear it will affect their positions within their community, or they could even lose their security clearances and put their jobs at risk. Others are scared that if they file a report, strangers are going to knock on their door with a camera crew and put them on the evening news, or worse…multiple men in jacked-up trucks and camo will arrive with guns blazing to hunting it down!
Symptoms commonly reported after a close sighting:
Nightmares and insomnia
Fear of the dark
Fear of the woods (day or night), they no longer feel at peace in the woods or safe.
Loss of interest or avoidance in their favorite outside activity (hunting, fishing, hiking, biking)
Flashbacks or repeated “playing of the video” in their mind, or haunted by the face or eyes of the creature.
Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
Some may experience alienation if they are not believed by those closest to them.
Some begin questioning their sanity, or their grasp on reality and what they believe to be true.
