Bigfoot Sightings Map

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/21/bigfoot-sightings-map-josh-stevens_n_3967703.html

In this case Id like to use the map to make a point about the varieties of Bigfoot sightings in general.


The original point of the map was to say that there is probably a population density explanation to the number of sightings but I would also caution that it seems to me there is more than oe population being sampled: the West Coast population includes the Patterson film series and Florida is the main concentration center for the orangutan-like Skunk Apes, while the Wildman types overlap both and occur all over the continent. The Skunk Apes also occur notably in the Mississippi delta region and they were mentioned by Ivan T Sanderson in 1961 (He suspected they could be orangutans)

                             Fictional Texas "Bush Ape" from 1940, "The Skipper" magazine cover
There already were rumours of this type circulating in the 1940s, and some early NAPES reports
