The Bigfoot Mystery
For many years, some people in North America have reported seeing a strange ape-like animal known as Bigfoot or Sasquatch. They say it is very tall (about 2 to 3 meters) and quite big (more than 200 kilograms). Bigfoot also has brown hair and walks on two legs, much like a human being. Scientists say that Bigfoot does not really exist. People who have seen it say otherwise.
Bigfoot rumors began in 1958 when a construction worker at Bluff Creek, California found large and mysterious footprints at a construction site. A local newspaper published an article about the strange footprints and international newspapers soon picked up the story. Groups of people known as “bigfoot hunters” went out to search for the beast.
Soon, people throughout North America began to report that they had seen Bigfoot. On October 20, 1967, two men claimed that they had filmed a Bigfoot near Bluff Creek. The footage showed a large hairy creature walking in the woods. There is some debate about whether the creature is real or a man in a costume.
Some scientists say that people who think they have seen Bigfoot are mistaking it for another kind of animal. Other people think that Bigfoot is a real creature that has not been found and identified. It seems that the rumors about Bigfoot will continue for a long time.
