# Finding Bigfoot - Page 14

Just doing a little calculation here. If deer are the primary prey of BFs, as is claimed above and there are 10,000 BFs in North America, the toll they must take on deer herds must be enormous. The usual statistic is that a mountain lion must kill one deer a week to survive. Now a BF must weigh at least 4X to 5X a mountain lion, if most estimates of size are correct. Let's be conservative, though, and estimate that a BF would need to kill and eat only three deer a week. If the 10,000 estimate is correct, then that would mean that BFs are killing more than 1,500,000 deer annually. You'd think wildlife managers would take some notice of the terrible toll these creatures are taking on our deer herds!

I considered that. Deer are not the only food by a long shot. Rabbits, racoons, fish, pine nuts, acorns, walnuts, berries, crustaceans, crayfish, roots. In addition, farm fruit such as apples, and veg such as corn and the like.

Caloric requirements generally decrease as a function of total mass of an animal, probably around 5,000 per day for its size. Pretty sustainable. You're calculations are not taking this into consideration, nor are you taking account of variation in the diet. Its believed to be an omnivore.

And 10k I suggested is a spit in the wind. It would need at very minimum 3k to have a breeding population. 10 is just a round number.

Lastly, across the population, if it is 10k, many are young and not eating nearly as much.

Pedantic of me, I know. Still your point is still very cogent.

Hah!

How would you know they're anatomically accurate when no BF has ever been found to be closely examined?

Because argument by assertion is all he's got.

Because the artifact's heads match the proportions of Gigantopithecus (although a complete skull has not been found) and early hominids.

In this instance below, its clear that the large mandible seems to match the Patterson Gimlin film.

If the BFs eat apples, a few BFs could play holy hell with a Washington state apple orchard. Any accounts of such raids?

What are these Indian artifacts? If you mean the "Hairy Man" petroglyphs, they are far from convincing, at least to me.

Art Bell has the map with the burial location of two bigfoots (bigfeet?).

A few weeks ago the BF show had a guy on which claims a BF ate a huge swathe of apples off a tree, an area about 7 feet around. He setup a trail cam when he started to notice which took a photo.

How many apples can one eat at a time? 20 or 30? That's nothing in a Wash St orchard.

I tried to do a search and couldn't find them. Some professor from Idaho St did a presentation on them and showed a handful.

I should have also added any thread on Apple products or St. Steve.

Oh holy lol, at 28 minutes in to the Art Bell Sasquatch show the caller says "If these are hominids then they are entitled to constitutional protection under our laws and 'Bugs' (the guy from Texas who shot two bigfoots) could be charged with manslaughter at least."

Fucking brilliant. Art Bell is the best.

I listened to the first 20 mins. Fucking show is crazy.

Edit: went to 34 mins. This TX guy is totally full of shit.
Wouldn't it be great if on his deathbed Art Bell admitted his whole show was a giant troll for the lolz?
