The evidence for the existence of Bigfoot is similar to the evidence for the existence of aliens. There is a lot of it and it is quite compelling. However the evidence comes up frustratingly short - the only photos and videos are vague and blurry, and to this day, no one has turned up a body.
But that doesn't mean Bigfoot doesn't exist. Or aliens, for that matter.
If one carefully considers the heaping amounts of witness testimony (from modern times and in Native American legend), along with physical evidence like large footprints and audio recordings, it's actually not unreasonable to conclude that some kind of giant, hairy, unknown ape-like creature has been hiding out in the mountains and woods of rural America as well as other parts of the planet for hundreds, if not thousands of years. But why is Bigfoot so good at hiding?
Some of the more logical scientific explanations for Bigfoot include escaped zoo animals or other misidentified animals. It was only last year, after all, that a new species of giant ape (or more specifically, orangutan) was discovered in Indonesia. Who knows what other strange creatures could be out there lurking in the trees?
But a more interesting and not-so-scientific explanation for Bigfoot that some researchers, including Sasquatch expert Nick Redfern (who I interviewed last year), have come to suggest is that the creature could actually be an inter-dimensional entity, similar to a ghost. That would certainly explain why Sasquatch is so good at disappearing and leaving no trace behind. It's also worth noting that sightings of UFOs and Bigfoot occasionally happen at the same time, and this definitely gives the theory that Bigfoot is from out-of-this-world some weight!
