How did I miss this one?  This was 5 years ago in Arizona.  The state Department of Transportation offered us the Sasquatch family.  In Arizona the name is the Mogollon Monster, designating the rough terrain where the beast is said to live.

Large animals don’t easily hide.  They also came from somewhere.  There would be other large animals.

The DOT was being somewhat tongue in cheek.  The angle of a photograph can be quite deceiving.  What you’re actually seeing is a series of large rocks along the road.  From a traffic camera view it could look like a herd of animals walking or grazing along the road.

I’m not a believer when it comes to Bigfoot.  Large animals don’t easily hide.  They also came from somewhere.  There would be other large animals.  Here at the office we have a map of Sasquatch sightings.  If they were all accurate, the large creatures would cover a good portion of North America.  Which means someone would’ve run one down by accident on some dark highway (think Harry and the Hendersons) or spotted one from a plane or chopper.  Or you would’ve simply gotten a better photo.

Phone cameras are ubiquitous.  If you’re picking your nose at a stoplight, there’s somebody taking your picture.

One local politician did tell me he keeps an open mind.  He’s spent decades hunting in the back country and has rarely even seen a bear and, yet.  He points out we know bears are in the woods.  So, just because we don’t see them, doesn’t mean there isn’t a Sasquatch roaming the South Hills.  Apparently, and unlike bears, they cover their presence by scooping their own scat.
