Why Government Officials Want to Keep Bigfoot/Sasquatch a Secret
I was browsing around and catching up on my reading when I came across a couple of questions that were asked by CJ Sledgehammer. Does Bigfoot exist? Why would the government officials want to keep the discovery of Bigfoot a secret? This got me to thinking . . .
I broke out my bag of sunflower seeds, snagged a cup of coffee laced with a heavy dose of cream and sugar, and set about working on the question “Does Bigfoot exist? If so, why is this a secret?” I dusted off my folders and notes and dug around the net looking for evidence of the possibility of Bigfoot existing. The Bigfoot evidence was there, but it was only a matter of whether I wanted to believe it or not.
I thought I would begin with accounts of Bigfoot stories.
Pitt Lake British Columbia in Canada
A Man Claimed to Be Kidnapped by Bigfoot
In 1924, a trapper by the name of Albert Ostman claimed to have been kidnapped by a large male Bigfoot. He was then taken back to a camp and held for a week before he could escape. He believed he was taken as an unwilling bridegroom for the Bigfoot's daughter.
This is just one of many stories where people believed people were kidnapped to be bred with Bigfoot. It is claimed that there is an area in British Columbia where 21 people have disappeared. (The Pitt Lake area in South Western BC is one such area.) No one knows for sure if Bigfoot is behind it, but many outdoorsmen avoid the area.
A Female Bigfoot Was Used as a Sex Slave
In 1962, a zoologist named Boris Porshnev heard of and studied a story of a hominoid named Zana. Zana was a wild woman (Bigfoot) that was captured in Russia. (She died sometime in the 1880s or 1890s and was believed to be buried outside the village of Tkhina in Russia.)
She was taken to a village where she was held captive until she became tame enough to do simple chores like a slave. She never learned to talk, only making inarticulate sounds and mutterings. She was described as 6.6 feet tall and having black skin with her body being covered in reddish-black hair.
After being mated with many of the village men, she gave birth to four children—two males and two females—that lived. The villagers took the infants to raise when they realized that her previous children died because she washed them in the ice-cold water from the stream.
Since her remains couldn't be found, permission was given to exhume the remains of Zana's youngest son, Khwit, which were dug up and studied by Igor Bourtsev. Reports of the study were published in 1987. More information on this story will be provided in the links below.
Everything You Know Is Wrong
The Theory of Lloy Pye
Lloyd Pye has been doing research for years to prove that Bigfoot is part of a hominoid family, and that humans are a genetic mutation. He believes this is a result of alien DNA being spliced together with Bigfoot DNA. Is it a possibility? Yes, there are some that think so. Do we know that to be fact? Well, we may soon find out once Melba Ketchum finishes her DNA paper she is currently writing on Bigfoot DNA, gathered from two bodies and other specimens.
In his book, “Everything You Know is Wrong,” Lloyd Pye states that he believes there are four types of Bigfoot. The Bigfoot/Sasquatch, the Abominable Snowman/Yeti, the Alma/Kaptar, and the Agogwe/Sedapa. He gives examples of how Bigfoot could be the Neanderthal man, not just by the shape of the skull, but the position of the limbs and its walk.
He claims that these individuals are more suited for this planet than humans. Humans, on the other hand, are very fragile creatures. Our bones are thin, our eye sockets are small (which makes it hard for humans to see in the dark), and our walk is unbalanced on uneven terrain. According to Lloyd Pye, there is not a single human bone in the so-called pre-human fossil record. More information on this subject is provided in the links below.
What if the Neanderthal man didn't go extinct as predicted 30,000 years ago, but was simply shoved to live in areas that were unappealing to humans, such as jungles, swamps, and deep woods? This would explain the stories of the upright, hairy, walking humanoids . . . aka Bigfoot.
Remember the stories I posted above? One begs the question how is it possible for a Bigfoot to mate with a human? Take a look at the genetics of a mule. A mule is produced when a female horse mates with a male donkey. All male mules are born sterile, but occasionally a female mule will have estrus cycles and therefore can produce an offspring.
But, nothing can be established with certainty, until it is understood how the genes are lined up. The same applies to Bigfoot females mating with male humans or vice versa. More evidence is needed on the hominoid genome to compare them with the human genome. Scientists such as Melba Ketchum, Dr. Jeff Meldrum, and the late Dr. Grover Krantz have been and still are doing extensive groundbreaking research into this, along with other groups such as the Erickson Project, the Olympian Project, the BFRO, and NABS (North American Bigfoot Search).
A story that stuck in my mind was about a claim of an elaborate cover up dealing with a Bigfoot that was caught in a fire. It was 1999, at Battle Mountain, Nevada, that one of the largest fires at that time broke out. An anonymous government employee witnessed an injured Bigfoot being captured by the firefighters. Officials were called along with medical personal. The Bigfoot was tranquilized and treated then transported to an unknown location believed to be in Northern Idaho. All parties involved were told not to talk about the incident and the story was covered up. The government employee passed on the information to Bigfoot investigators, while a science teacher and acclaimed author, Thom Powell, came forward to state that he believed the story to be true.
Anyone following the Bigfoot news recently, has been watching to see what will become of the two Bigfoot that were killed by a well known big game hunter. Speculations have been made who has control over the bodies and where they are hid. There was even a claim as to how much the Bigfoot steaks would be worth. In one report, I saw a sale price of $10,000.00, although Melba Ketchum was given one for her DNA analysis. (To say that I was a bit floored would be an understatement.) There have been rumors circulating that the parties involved will be coming out with undisputed physical proof that Bigfoot exists, along with a documentary of a habituation site where clear footage of Bigfoot were taken. I will post more information on this in the following month or so.
This brings me back to the haunting question...why the cover up?
To admit that Bigfoot was real would be admitting that Science was wrong. There would be a lot of time and money invested in re-writing history books, documentaries, and other historical documents. Documents-- such as newspaper reports, field reports, police reports-- that have been published, then pulled from the public about Bigfoot, will need to be re-submitted as evidence, as a further admittance of Bigfoot's existence. The Battle Mountain fire would be one of many cases that had a noticeable coverup where evidence was hid from the public.
If the evidence of Bigfoot was miss categorized , there would be a need to go back and restudy that evidence to be properly categorized, reports re-written, and a new placement in the system. That alone would be a financial strain on all parties involved, which may result in a further cover up to avoid the time consuming and expensive task.
To show and admit proof of Bigfoot would involve re-programming the way society thinks and reacts to this species. There are states that are passing laws to protect anyone from harming or shooting a Bigfoot. Many in society do not realize how often and how many species of Bigfoot are killed since this information isn't publicized. I will post a link below on further proof of these killings. One report states that as many as 32 Bigfoot have been killed over the last 125 years. It is believed that there has been a possible government cover up on some of these incidences up since 1968.
What, if any, industries would be effected by the publicity and physical proof of Bigfoot?
The logging industry would feel threatened because they may face the possibilities of being shut down to further protect the Bigfoot environment. This would create a loss for jobs, resources we depend upon, and revenue from those resources.
It would also have an impact on people that hunt, fish, and camp in Bigfoot's environment. This may become a new challenge for those parties that enjoy big game hunting and see this as another trophy to mount. Others will feel the need to place Bigfoot on an endangered species list. Parties camping or fishing with young children may feel threatened by the idea of Bigfoot kidnapping them.
Lastly, outdoor sports such as ski, snowmobiling, and snowboarding will be effected. The loss of revenue alone from shutting down such games would leave a huge impact on society's wallet.
In a nutshell, it boils down to this: The cost and impact of Bigfoot being alive and living next to us is enormous. Who wants to foot that bill?
