The Search For Bigfoot: Women in Bigfoot Research ~ Adrianne Brashear Arney: Follow up: There are people, like myself, who are not "believers" simply because they haven't had a sighting. While I think your thoughts on this are well thought out and you obviously know how to make a well informed decision, others will not agree. They will say, "how can you believe Bigfoot is out there when you haven't seen it."
What would you say to those people?
Adrianne: I have hiked all over the hills in Kentucky ever since I was a child and I have never seen a bear or bobcat while hiking. But because I have never seen one doesn't mean they are not there, because they are! I have seen a Black Panther but according to KY forest rangers they do not exist there! (The Search For Bigfoot, Melissa Hovey)I relate to this -- I haven't seen a Sasquatch myself, but I believe those many individuals who have shared with me their sightings and encounters.
