A bear with mange.
An Anonymous poster wanted me to examine the other photo of the mangy bear and show how it looks like a bear. Well, I don't have to since many other people have. The above picture was found off of this website, which doesn't know who to credit for it.
Also, as The Plaid Lemur points out, this creature has the same bone ratios as a black bear.
People need to keep in mind that it is:
#1 At an odd angle, people aren't use to seeing bears from that angle.
#2 Suffering from mange, so it appears slightly different than typical bears.
#3 At night, so the clarity isn't good.
A mangy bear, by definition has less fur or no fur and therefore the legs will appear longer as the fur makes the body appear thinner. On top of it, mange can cause an animal to lose weight and therefore become thinner, making the legs appear even longer.
Roughly 50 percent of the area's bears have the disease, including over 80 percent of the adult females. Even the few females that don't currently exhibit the mange-like symptoms show signs of previous infection.
Granted, the above quote from National Geographic is about Florida bears, but it points out something that bigfoot believers have been avoiding. Adult Female bears are more likely to get mange, so it is possible for a mother bear to have mange and the cubs not to have mange. What do the 3 pictures show according to the skeptics? The 1st photo shows 2 cubs, the 2nd photo shows the mangy mother bear, and the 3rd photo shows a baby bear feeding off of the mother.
What we have here is something that:
- Has a black bear face.
- Is in an area where black bears are known to exist (Bigfoot can't even be proven to exist anywhere mind you).
- Is interacting with bears, or at least visits feed sights at the same time baby black bear cubs do.
- Has its front legs coming out of its shoulders as seen in photo 3 the same way that it does out of a bear and not out of a primate.
- Walks on all 4 legs like a bear, not on 2 feet like a bipedal bigfoot.
- Has the same bone ratios as a black bear.
- It looks like a mangy bear.
- Jacob's camera trap took pictures of what were black bears on past occasions.
A logical conclusion is that it is in fact a mangy bear.
