Certainly eyewitnesses are limited as far as what actual evidence they bring to the table, but if there are numerous eyewitnesses experienced with a specific thing, and all agree on what they seen, then their report should rightfully be given a far higher degree of credulity than any other witnesses.

For example, if 12 witnesses experienced with primates got a good look at a BigFoot, all it would amount to is that they would claim they discovered a new species of primate.

Quite unremarkable imo. Since new species of animals are discovered from time to time, and only with 2 or 3 witnesses, and it is accepted as a new species, not often do we see a report of fraud come up. Not that it doesn't happen.

Why? Because there is nothing remarkable about 2 or 3 people finding a new species of animal.

New species of animals are found all the time. Do you know how they know they are new species? This is gonna blow your mind...
they collect and bring back to study it! Freaking amazing I tell you. These biologists, always want a sample, its like they don’t believe in, er...non-samples! Yeah, that’s it.

Perfect example the Ceolecanth. http://vertebrates.si.edu/fishes/coelaca...wider.html
Not until a fisherman brought one up in 1938 from over 500 feet did biologist know that it didn’t go extinct 80mya. What does this have in common with Bigfoot? Nothing since we know Ceolecanths exist. Cool

Don't you know? They burn their dead. How do you think all those Forrest fires start, HMMMM???? Oh no, smokey the bear is in on it Hobo

What if Smokey IS a bigfoot? A humanoid Bear? How else would he survive but by hiding in plain sight.

I recently heard an amusing story of a man who keeps telling legends of how he was face to face with Bigfoot but his dog stopped him from getting off the shot... even after he learned it was just a friend of his in a suit, he will happily retell it as if it was a real bigfoot. Legends are desired more than anything else by some.

Actually it's the 1st female they have seen.

Edit: I wonder what the hell this actually is?

I think it's only a matter of time before The History Channel puts on a show about how Ancient Aliens deposited Bigfoots ghost here on Earth millions of years ago in what is now South America.

Chupacabra

Chupacabra look like this: Front. Back

(Image not imbeded because alien nipples and snatch.)

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.
