Jane Goodall Isn’t Ruling Out Existence Of Bigfoot

Jane Goodall DBE is an English primatologist and anthropologist. Considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, Goodall is best known for her 60-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees since she first went to Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania in 1960, where she witnessed human-like behaviours amongst chimpanzees, including armed conflict.

It is certainly interesting to note, then, that she has publicly stated on multiple occasions that she does not rule out the possible existence of such a creature.

During a recent interview with GQ Magazine, she also recalled an experience of her own that seemed to further reinforce this possibility in her mind.

Here’s what she said during a recent interview with GQ Magazine.

“I was in Ecuador. We’d flown for two solid hours over unbroken forest in a small plane and we visited four tiny little communities.

“30 to 50 people, no roads, and they communicate with each other by means of like in the old days—it was the town crier, but these are hunters actually, and they carry the news from one village to another and letters and things like that.

“So I had an interpreter and I said to him, “When you next meet one of these hunters, could you ask if they’ve ever seen a monkey without a tail?” Three of the hunters came back and said, “Oh yes. We’ve seen monkeys without tails. They walk upright and they’re about six foot tall.”

“Now this was an interpreter from the village. He knew nothing about Bigfoot, nothing at all. Every single country has its version.

“Yeti, Yowie in Australia, Wild Man in China. So I don’t know if it’s perhaps a myth that stems from maybe the last of the Neanderthals.

“But then is the last of the Neanderthals still living in these remote forests? I don’t know. But I’m not going to say it doesn’t exist and I’m not going to say people who believe in it are stupid.”

  1. A comment not saying yes from an internationally renowned scientist, always in the forefront of research on the ground, and not desk bound, but saying probably, without diminishing her crediblity with other scientists! Probably as near as we’ll get for belief from those who know about possible future confirmations of unconfirmed (100% scientifically) surviving species, without falling into the hole of a certain other lady, now accused of falisfying evidence. There is definately something solid that exists, as this beastie is known in a similar form, with enough differences of evolution for their different regions and continents. Even where it has become extinct the documentry and orally passed evidence it existed elsewhre until recent historical times – “The Old Man of the Woods”, of the British Isles for eg.
