Elusive Big Foot
As the third Millennium unfolds, past mysteries continue to resurface that science cannot yet explain away. Such is the mystery of Big Foot, also known as Yeti, Abominable snowman, Sasquatch, Aliens, and the missing link. There have been countless sightings over the years much like U.F.O. phenomenon eye witness accounts. Most eyewitnesses are alone, in a deserted area, with no recording devices such a camera or videotape recorder to capture the event. All they have is their story.
Until that is, two events changed the face of Big Foot lore. These two events are the documentary movie made in 1973 titled, The Legend of Boggy Creek that showed actual footage of big foot in it’s natural habitat and Oliver, the Hybrid half human, half ape primate that was so refined that he would mix a round of drinks for everyone at night including himself and sit down and watch TV.
The Grassy Knoll Institute in it’s continuing investigations, offer the following insight on the legend or the reality of Big Foot.
It was used to advertise the 1973 movie, The Legend Of Boggy Creek, a documentary film about Big Foot and how it had eluded capture all these years. The film was not a box office success but it did give credence that a creature such as Big Foot may indeed exist.
The footage of the elusive creature was touted to be clear evidence that Big foot existed. Yet when I saw the film, and yes, I saw the film at the theater way back in 1973, it was a mere several seconds of a fuzzy ape like animal walking in the distant. The animal seemed to sense the camera’s rolling, stopped a moment and looked directly at the cameraman, and then quickly walked behind a tree and into folklore history as one of the most about mysteries today. Irrefutable proof? Hardly! The film was so grainy and the footage so fleeting, it was impossible to make an accurate scientific analysis.
This is where Oliver comes in. The supposedly missing link. Oliver is a very famous chimp with some very strange qualities and characteristics. Upon first glimpse, one can see that his head is smaller than other chimpanzee’s and has more human attributes than that of a chimp. Oliver also is a bipedal primate, as he walks on two feet as humans do. No other chimp recorded has ever mastered this feat for more than a few steps. Oliver strolled around in his large cave always on two feet without the aid of his arms. He also liked to sit in chairs and watch television.
His intelligence was extraordinary. Oliver was able to perform chores such as taking out the trash, loading and emptying a wheel barrel, and even feeding the dogs. Although he couldn’t speak or write, Oliver was a creature of habit and knew when it was bedtime and when his favorite TV shows were on.
With all the fanfare surrounding this chimp called Oliver, it was no wonder that medical tests were performed to determine it’s genetic makeup. A rumor had it that Oliver had 47 chromosomes which is one more than a human and one less than a chimp who normally has 48. A missing link indeed. Some even speculated that Oliver was some sort of hybrid animal genetically engineered between a human and chimp. Afterall, chimp and human DNA is 99% the same. it’s only that small 1% that makes us human.
The results however, showed that Oliver was a mere chimp. Not a genetically engineered new species, not human, but just a mutant chimp. A chimp capable of walking on two feet. The anticipation that actual proof was found slowly dissipated and Oliver is now living out his retirement at a secluded animal habitat content to live out the remainder of his life as a regular chimp.
In conclusion, the Grassy Knoll Institute still asks the question. If Big Foot does really exist, why haven’t we found a dead carcass of one in the woods? Surely these creatures die. When they do, where are the dead bodies?
Until we see concrete evidence, and we don’t mean the plaster cast versions, the Grassy Knoll Institute is still not convinced that Big Foot exists and will continue it’s ongoing investigations until hard evidence does become available.
