Big Foot, a hairy and human-like animal that some say lives in the Northwest of the USA or in western Canada, is a “killing machine” but won’t attack unless specific actions are taken, an expert claims.
Thomas Marcum, who produced the adventure/documentary Bigfoot: The Legend is Real, has suggested that the creature, which some people would describe as mystical, would only kill humans if provoked.
The Sasquatch expert told the Daily Star: “No doubt a Bigfoot could easily kill a man if he wanted to.
“The size and strength would be unmatched for a human.
“But that would be a very rare event in my opinion. While there is potential for Bigfoot to harm humans, it doesn’t appear to be happening.
“There are a few historical accounts of attacks, but most are only after someone shot a Bigfoot.”
According to Marcum, the beast – often compared to the hideous snowman or yeti thought to live in the Himalayas – may have been involved in some historic US kidnappings.
Marcum warns, “If Bigfoot was a killing machine, they’d never find out.”
He also noted that there are stories of Bigfoot “kidnapping” Native American women and a man named Albert Ostman.
Marcum said Ostman, a Canadian prospector, was “kidnapped by a Sasquatch and held captive for six days.”
He explained: “As Ostman was sleeping one night, a Sasquatch allegedly picked him up and carried him away while he was in his sleeping bag.
“He found himself in the presence of several Sasquatch.
“He was eventually able to escape by getting the Sasquatch to try some of his snuff (tobacco).”
Meanwhile, British explorer David Thompson is often credited with claiming the first discovery of Bigfoot in 1811 after allegedly “discovering” a series of footprints.
Over the years, the legend has only grown, with people claiming to have spotted the animal or even filmed it roaming around.
Often described as a primate, the Sasquatch is considered to stand between 6 and 15 feet tall on two legs.
Alleged footprints left by Bigfoot were up to 24 inches long and 8 inches wide.
None of the evidence allegedly supporting the existence of such a creature has ever been verified, and most scientists do not believe the creature even exists.
However, the skepticism of the scientific world hasn’t stopped some from claiming they’ve discovered the legendary beast.
One of the most famous sightings was made in 1967. The famous short film, known as the Patterson-Gimlin film, captured an unknown subject which the filmmakers claimed was a Bigfoot.
The Sun has highlighted some of the more credible claims of the past decade.
