Topie: Bigfoot and Development

Kathlyn47 When I read new report #25582 http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=25582 I immediately recalled John Green's prediction in his 1978 book Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us. "Actually the people with the best mathematical chance to see a Sasquatch are almost certainly those who sit up nights where skunk apes have been reported garbage hunting in western Florida." I am a native Floridian and know all areas of Florida well. The location of this report on the West Coast of Florida is so densely developed both residential and commercially that I was just amazed that a Bigfoot would venture there. The eyewitness mentioned McDonald's a number of times as close by on a major highway. Did he smell the dumpster and all those trashed Big Mac's and fries?

I googled the location for everyone to see how populated the area is. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl It is north of Tampa, within 1 mile of the Gulf of Mexico to the west and within 10 miles to the east is a very large wilderness area. It's just takes a lot to imagine how he crossed such a busy 4 line highway and through all those residential streets. His evasive skills were in top form. The investigator mentions that he might have been in search of a water supply. The area east of this location is abundant in spring fed lakes despite the drought and more so further east. The report is west and in an area of fast food restaurants. I sincerely hope he didn't take such a risk, as John Green predicted, because his habitat was low on food sources and he smelled the dumpster and burgers cooking.

Has anyone read any reports elsewhere of Bigfoot activity in such a densely populated area possibly in search of food?


Sorry the link to the location was not more specific. Just google Gulf Trace Blvd., Holiday, Florida 34691, for a good view.

Smellyman My class "a" took place well within a major city. Orchards and water dominated the area at the time. If I had not seen it so clearly, I would not have believed something like that would live anywhere near humans.

Andy Aren't there also sightings in and around municipal dumps? (Like bears.)
