This is where all the bigfoot zealots start to shout at me once again

Friday 30th July 2021

I bet a pound to a pinch of dirt that incidents like this are responsible for a significant proportion of Bigfoot reports. This is not to say that there are no North American unknown higher primates, Merely that if one is going to be properly analytical about the subject then one needs to take bipedal bears into consideration.

Previously, I have been aware of bipedalism in bears, but this has occurred when the bear in question has an injured front paw. This is the first time that I have seen this behaviour in an apparently healthy individual.
