Poll # 2 – How many sasquatches inhabit the United States and Canada?

There are just so many things we do not know about squatches. One interest I have always had is population studies. Whether birds or mammals I have always been amazed how living populations tend to stay stable.

Please take the time to vote in this poll, I am very interesting in your opinions!

    Seeing that there are approximately 4,000 reports over the last 40 years, and surmising that only 5% are reported, I would guess there's somewhere around 60,000 in the lower 48, and 40,000 in Canada.

    It does not makes sense that there are just a few thousand Sasquatch.

    There is more food than ever with orchards, crops and ungulates in record abundance. There is also still a great deal of forest that humans rarely travel.

    So there are two choices. There are very few shy relatively dumb apes OR Bigfoot is a hominid with similar intelligence to ourselves just tasked differently than us.

    The second is the only possibility because humans and Sasquatch share hooded noses, migrated toes, descended larynx, breathe control, and almost identical hand structure. It is impossible that these similarities happened separately.

    Therefore Sasquatch must be 100,000 times better at living in the forest at night than humans are able. And Conversely humans are 100,000 times better at living in New York city during the day, as a Sasquatch. So its all okay.

    This concept may be inconceivable for most people in the way that people could not grasp that the world was round…. because everyone has been taught that there was a single line of hominid progression. Where as it is likely that there are many lines of homo, chief among them a diurnal line (human) and a nocturnal line (Sasquatch).

    There must be a viable population in Florida then Georgia, then the Carolinas etc etc all the way to Alaska. So 100,000 would be a good guess. But we won't know until someone can figure a way to count them.

    In order to maintain a healthy and viable breeding population, and to account for individual similarities and differences, both regional and continentally, there would probably need to be an amount in the 'common' range.

    Also, native accounts going back many generations further seem to indicate a historically stable and well-spead population. Many tribes even have oral tradition on how to handle an encounter (eyes to the ground).

    Also, various physical differences have been noted. 3 toes, or 5. Color, hair length and density, various builds, and canine teeth vs 'cow teeth'.

    Can a 3 toe breed with a 5 toe? Do all 'skunkapes' have pronounced canines, while the classic PNW sasquatch possesses more blocky squarish teeth?

    What about character traits? From the many, many, many reports I've read on face to face encounters (my primary interest), most seem curious to indifferent, some are aggressive, a few others just act the damn fool.

    So much I want to learn….

    My opinion is that the reasons that the estimate is kept low for numbers nationwide is political. What type of ridicule would be placed upon certain individuals if they stated these animals are common and not rare?

    I personally think that there are places like swamps which can harbor dense populations because of the food and security. People wonder where they live or sleep? Heck, any good size river will have a lot of islands in it where nobody ever sets foot, especially at night. That's thousands of Bigfoot hotels right there…

    They don't have trouble staying hidden if they want. As secretive and elusive as they are, there must be a good size population to explain all the chance encounters that people have had over the years…
