Here we go again. More dodgy footage of “mythical” beasts. I can’t help myself. Sorry. Just to recap: I don’t believe in ghosts, I think there may be life on other planets but I don’t reckon it’s made it to us yet, I don’t believe in the Loch Ness monster (but I want to) and I have a soft spot in my heart for the yeti, bigfoot, sasquatch and abominable snowman stories.
There have been sightings of large hair covered humanoids for centuries, not just in North America, but also in China, Mongolia, Nepal, Russia and other northerly countries. These sightings were before the internet allowed disparate peoples to copy each others madnesses. It’s not proof in itself of course, and it is progressively rarer to find undiscovered species that are larger than a spider. The odds aren’t stacked in the Yeti’s favour, but I certainly don’t think we can write this majestic pseudo-beast off just yet.
Recently Legend Tracker, an adventure app developer, put out a request for footage of encounters with fabled creatures. Most of them were guff, as you would expect, but this film shot in Mission, British Columbia is one of the best. It could just be a bloke I suppose, but what’s he doing up there all on his own?
This next one is footage from a Chinese tourist group in the same place: Mission, British Columbia, this one is even less convincing though. I reckon it’s a bored tour guide mucking with the tourist’s brains. Or, the Mission tourist board is trying to drum up a bit of free viral advertising. Once again I find myself helping someone get free hits on their website. Oh well…. The place is pretty wild though, they have a “Bear awarness” page on their website.
It’s not impossible folks….
